    Looks like the rumor was true...

    The trailer is supposed to combine with the Stunticons to form Menasor.

    Upcoming 3rd party trailer for BotCon Animated Motormaster?


    Just when I convinced myself not to spend $350 on those figures. T_T


    EDIT: erf, wrong section, sorry, could someone move it into the news section please?

    This is great news for anyone who has the set. This is most likely terrible news for anyone who was saving up to get one.

    if you just want a combiner on animated line you can always go repaint the same molds for a cheaper (or soon, cheaper) alternative.

    Yeah as long as you own a version of those molds you could probably still use the add-ons to see what it's like.

    In fact, aren't those molds all autobots? Just repaint lockdown into an animated autobot homage and you can have an original combiner:

    Optimus Prime
    Rodimus
    Arcee
    Jazz

    And a custom autobot.

    What? How is this even going to work?

    I'd like to see that, but I foresee alot of problems
    Bots were never made for combination, and are too stylized. Just how many custom parts is this trailer going to include for them to combine? Will the Menasor be 75% new pieces? And just how are those going to fit into the trailer. Will the trailer even look like it fits in with the Animated style? Can they come up with a Menasor body shape and head design that works for Animated and doesn't just look generic?

    Sorry, I just don't really see it happening - but I'd love to be blown away by this.

    I gotta agree with this, after giving it some thought. I'm probably gonna keep my expectations low, but still hope I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Glad I grabbed the set when I did. After this the prices are gonna be even more ridiculous.

    I'd have to agree with this. I'm not convinced enough to want to go spend the money on one of the BotCon sets. If it turns out to be a must-have, I'll pick up extras of the original figures and repaint them.

    well I actually got 3 of the sets for this very reason. I wanted a car mode, a bot maode and I was planning on working on a custom combined mode with my third set. Now maybe I wont need too.

    I will wait to see what it costs/how good it looks before making final judgement, but I am happy it is being done sooner rather than later.
