Not likely since these designs are the original designs of the Destructons from the Blackthorne comics and not based on any toys. The Destructons don't transform, either. They're featured here since they've been pivotal characters in this year's six-part Club magazine comic story "Alone Together".

Leave it to The Club to shine the spotlight on something that had literally no impact on a Fandom for 30 years.

That's not a complaint; I think that's pretty cool!

A Centaur-man and a Snake-man? You sure this isn't just Mega Man?

Looks like repurposed G Gundam designs to me.

No centaurs in G Gundam (just a horse), but there were some samurai centaurs in Gundam Kiba-Musha.

I don't care one bit if they transform or not, I would very much like three voyagers and a leader out of them. Medusa and Psychokhan as voyagers just to make sure they have enough articulation and are decently sized.

At the BotCon Retrospective Panel at this year's con, there were 20 concepts shown for toy ideas that the Club had had for exclusives, but were never made. The first 10 were ideas that never got past conception, and the secone 10 were ones that were approved but then rejected. In the second group were two concepts for a Bruton toy. One was to have been made from the Generations FOC Voyager Grimlock mold, and the other was to have been made from the Prime First Edition Voyager Bulkhead mold. But both were canned due to Bruton being considered far too obscure to be desirable.

And seeing as how neither of these molds would really do Bruton proper justice, I'm glad neither were made.


Also, just for funsies, have some nightmare fuel:

Out of curiosity, what were the other nineteen concepts?

Also, broken image is broken.

Quoted from my own coverage of the panel:
20 Years, 20 Exclusives That Never Were.

The first 10 never even made it past conception, the second ten were approved but then rejected

1 – Hardshell (G1 Bombshell) from Generations Darkmount/Straxus

2 – Overlord from ROTF Mindwipe

3 – Hubcap from Animated Soundwave

4 – "Marlboro" from ROTF Lockdown

5 – "Femme Fatale Cykill" from Prime First Edition Arcee

6 – "Predaking BW Style" from Beast Wars Tigerhawk

7 – Shattered Glass Stranglehold from 2010 Deluxe Axor, would have had a mustache

8 – Skyquake and King Atlas (I think?) from Universe Ultra Silverbolt

9 – The Turbomasters w/ Thunderclash from Prime RID Ultra Magnus and four Prime RID Deluxe car molds (Wheeljack, Bumblebee, etc.)

10 – Twilight Sparkle Prime from Beast Wars Neo Mach Kick

What You Almost Got

11 – G1 Ransack from Generations FOC Kickback w/ two Arms Microns

12 – Three pirates from PRID Wheeljack, PRID Dreadwing, Generations FOC Air Raid (Wheeljack was almost this year's Cannonball)

13 – Bumper from Prime RID Rumble

14 – G1 Crosshairs from Generations Kup

15 – Animated Strika from Animated Voyager Bulkhead

16 – Bruton from Generations FOC Grimlock

17 – Bruton from Prime First Edition Bulkhead

18 – Machine Wars Prowl from Classics Mirage (was replaced by Machine Wars Mirage)

19 – Machine Wars Hubcap from Generations Kup w/ the MW Hoist/Electrons headsculpt

Teasing us with Animated drawings, Sideswipe, Jackpot, Jhiaxus, Goldbug, purple Blackout

20 – The original plan for 2011's Animated set: Toxic Mayhem – BugBite (Animated Hydrodrive Bumblebee) and Toxitron (Animated Wingblade Optimus Prime) vs. Jackpot (which we did get later) and Kup (Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime). Animated Sideswipe would have been based on the SG deco instead of the G2 deco. Animated Tigatron from Rodimus. Animated Shokaract from Blackout. Animated Springer from Swindle. Animated Flamewar, Nightracer, and one other black & green Con fembot (missed the name of this one) from Arcee. Plus G1-colors Breakdown and Action Master colors Thundercracker (both of which we did wind up getting).


One proposal that couldn’t be found was told to us instead: a BotCon Alternators box set. Four figure box set. Galvatron from Wheeljack (new head). Cyclonus from Mirage. Ultra Magnus from Optimus. Rodimus from somebody (but we got one anyway).

The Ultra Mammoth idea came out earlier than it was revealed, in like 2012 or so. And since we got a BW version of Ultra Magnus, and there was already a BW version of Optimus, who does that leave that's missing...?

Bonus 21 – Rodimouse from Transmetal Rattrap!

Those all sound horrible with the exception of ransack, skyquake, and king atlas.

From what I recall, the most well received ideas from the audience were numbers 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 (the whole room went nuts over this one, with everyone either loving it or hating it), 11, 15, 18, 19, 20, the Alternators set, and 21.

B-E-A-Utiful! =P~

So we did get these 2 characters, makes you wonder about the others.

where is my xacto and some paint oh and the SG/Animated Sides- swipe sounds awesome
too bad this list wasn't able to carry us over from AOE to RID 2015 as i would absolutely would love to see a SG sideswipe show up in my local Wally world (Walmart) that line would be themost awesome thing in existence and why not a Animated Windblade as a heavily modified Starscream with new weapons, body and head sculpt in her IDW coloring from the mini series and a G1 thunder-clash from Super Base Prime with a new trailer those might never happen but do sure sound interesting
