    To all:

    I just finished reading the latest Collector's Club Magazine. From reading the comic and Decepiticon profile, me thinks one of the Botcon figures will be Shockwave, possibly Thundercracker, and/or SunStorm. Shockwave it mentioned a few times thoughout the mag as more of a rival to Megs like the Dreamwave comic.

    I gotta go back and read the last issue to see if there were any other TFs not made Classics style. If anyone catches what I caught in that, or caught something in the last issue let me know. They're kinda like hidden names (Easter Eggs) in them.

    Other figs I could see coming out of this are:

    • Scourge (Black Convoy)
    • Sunstreaker/Sidswipe (Rodimus Mold, new face)
    • The Cosmos concept that was floating around a while back
    • Dirge/Thrust (Slight remold of Ramjet)
    • Drag Strip (Stunicon) (Mirage recolored mold and new head)

    These have probably already been listed.

    I can also see them coming out with at least 1 movie exclusive figure too.

    Hm. Can't be scourge, unless they radically change his color scheme. We've been told there's not much black at all in the srt.

    Sunstreaker or Sideswipe certainly seems possible.

    Cosmos is a definite no. The club/con can't create a figure from nothing as an exclusive, and this toy was apparently never even prototyped.

    Dirge/Thrust. Hm. Well, I'd give 100% odds that half of this is right, at the least. I'd bet heavily on new wings, too.

    Drag strip seems feasible. Movie exclusives...maybe. I would think the molds would have been in use by Hasbro during the necessary time though.
