    RID Sideburn from the Classics Rodimus mold.

    This was just reported in the live Club panel that is going on now.

    .....Ok. Nice mold, poor character. At least they got the more important half of an exclusive right.

    They also said that the next 2 club exclusives will be G2 Ramjet and Animated Transtech Cheetor(Blurr remold).

    So they do G2 Ramjet as a club exclusive, but not for BotCon? Odd if you ask me. I have zero interest in animated molds.

    They said that the idea for the set was suppose to be G2 but they wanted to do a majority of Euro G1.

    Here is the info that was just posted in the live update:

    Since the Transtech Cheetor is getting a new head, I'd imagine this one is just a repaint.

    I guess the Botcon 2011 theme is RID.

    The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a blue Rodimus. I certainly wouldn't be buying the figure for the Sideburn character.

    If they dont give Sideburn a new head I would love have it, I really like the mold. I dont like RID but it cant be that hard to repurpose him as some random blue autobot car. Some micromaster or something.

    I can always repurpose this repaint as 1986 movie, matrix scene Hot Rod (part where he catches the matrix from Prime's hand and holds the matrix).

    I'm pretty happy about this as the freebie. I was thinking of picking up both the original Sideburn and the red repaint since I liked the colors and 'bot mode; if the paint job is pretty slick, that'll be one nice freebie from TFCC since I really like the Hot Rod mold anyways.
