Optimus looks to be based on the Generation 2 Gobot mold with Armada Optimus's head. Not sure if the Pretender shell is supposed to homage anything in particular (though I'm getting Universe (2003) Optimus Primal/Robots in Disguise (2001) Optimus Prime vibes from him).

Wonder who Quickslinger is based on?

Looks promising so far. The Paradron Medic had to happen at some point. Just a few paint and plastic changes to Arcee is all it takes, no remolding.

I do wonder though......if this is TFSS 5.0...will the TFCC be releasing it? I thought their license wasn't going to be renewed, due to their announcement stating that all memberships would cease to be effective at the end of the year. Or did I read that wrong?

As far as we know, it was always due to continue through 5.0. As for botcon 2017... not sure about that

Well that's what I'm not sure about. TFSS 4.0 is coming out this year (likely after or around Botcon in 2 months), which means 5.0 is next year, 2017. So if they've lost the license, how is 5.0 going to happen? Or does this signal that they'll still be putting Botcon on and just requiring members to sign up every year?

I'm pretty sure it's just them changing up the membership registration dates, and they all now renew/expire at the end of the year.

I know there was a Facebook post from Pete waaaaay back when this was a big deal, and one of the comments was "Say it ain't so!". I think what's happebing is that Pete is stepping down and someone else is taking over FunPub.

Is it just me, or is the Quickslinger Targetmaster kind of superfluous, since the Paradron Medic won't be able to hold it? And why use the same mold for Quickslinger that they knew they needed to use for Hi-Q?

That Optimus is actually pretty creative, though. That they got Swerve's mold to evoke Prime's standard design is impressive, while at the same time it's different enough to not blend in with the crowd. I'm not sure I feel the need to own it, but I like it being out there, and I might go after it if I wind up with spare cash somehow.

Optimus's deco is more based on the G2 Laser Optimus Prime deco, in vehicle mode, at least. The robot mode deco seems to just be traditional Optimus colors with black limbs thanks to the mold's sprue layout.

The Pretender shell is colored like the variant deco that the original Double Pretender gorilla shell was shown to have at BotCon 1996, along with the other deco that was used as the basis for Oilmaster's shell's deco.
