Thanks to Pete's Robot Convention, we have many new images of the Botcon 2011 sets that never were, along with the TFSS 6.0 that never was! These many images show the process of making new Botcon toys and how there were many ideas that made it to the drawing board but never made it to the convention themselves. The images also show us what could have been the TFSS 6.0 set, among with was Override, Senator Ratbat, Shattered Glass Rodimus Prime, General Tankor, Thrust, and Jetstorm! Check out all the images below.

Stay tuned for more to come. Pete said that they'd be posting even more unused concepts like this in the next few days, after the con.

I'd kill for the override figure.

I'm mesmerized by this stuff...
I'd never buy most of them, but I really like the creativity that goes into each design.

I wouldn't say so @ Flywheels. After all, we got Megalligator -- and we know TFCC previously cancelled CW Nemesis Prime when it turned out Takara done something very similar. That tells me these proposed ideas were very early; early enough for the E-Hobby stuff to not immediately shoot down Megalligator and possibly even early enough for Hasbro to pinch the Flywheels idea. Anything's possible, if unlikely.


God I would have loved Override.

Some of those did get produced, some after a few changes like Breakdown and Wildrider switching molds. The point is to get a glimpse of the brainstorming process for those figures produced or not, which is always interesting to see... not to mention how FunPub and eHobby seem to think alike :lol:

So many great ideas, gone to waste.

Also shown off at Pete's Robot Convention was Energon Megatron from Titans Return Black Shadow, which upon viewing a part of me died. The knowledge that it would never be made depressed me. :-(

can honestly say none of these appeal to me at all anyways.

I would have loved the Beast Machines stuff and most of TFSS 6.0.(all but SG Rodimus) I am glad we got the animated Stunticons set as that's my favorite box set.

Who thought of the different transformation on Thrust? Find them and give them some sort of meaningless title that shows off how brilliant they are.

Saw some interesting concepts posted from the show like doubledealer from hardhead... they look quite good and interesting. In a way it's a pity but then again it leaves more of a door open for hasbro to tackle some characters themselves

I totally would have bought that Override. Why they didn't do her instead of Nautica for the Velocitron set I'm not sure, it would have made much more sense for the theme and it would have worked better too (plus it would have required less retooling).

And SG Rodimus was the thing I loved most from that set. I needed him.

Wanna do a split purchase?! :lol:

That Alligator/Crocodile Prime was actually something I planned on making for a stop motion where he lost his truck parts and "de-evolved" into having a beast mode. Kind of like when Wolverine had his adamantium removed and got more feral (I have crazy ideas :oops: )

Except the club would have give us a proper body for Megalligator.
