    So, any new theories on a small army of oddly coloured divebombs? Has to be botcon related.

    It could be this years iteration of the Arcee repaints from last year. They're both the same scale and we know they aren't in the boxed set. There were three last year, but only one was in the boxed set, one was an on the door thing and one was a separate deal to the main box, right?
    I think these two might be the same thing.

    On the subject of the toy itself, that is a very nice paintjob. That design looks great in red.

    That's DEFINITELY Terrorsaur. No doubt about it.

    I'd bank on the brown repaint being some sort of drone or summat, if it turns out not to be Airazor.

    Yep, very likely BotCon, and very likely Terrorsaur.

    I'm digging that. Makes a great Terrasaur. Though I don't know about blue for the weapons.

    And neither of them got repaints during Energon for that matter. Makes sense to me. *sigh* And I still need a Flamewar...

    I don't know about terrorsaur. That would make his pre-beast form a beast.

    Well, if LioConvoy's alt mode in The Gathering seem to be a Lion, maybe also Terrorsaur can be a beast; but is sure that if is so, I don't like it!

    I always think Terrorsaur was like a Seeker, before BW, and for me Divebomb is perfect for a update of Laserbeak or Buzzsaw G1!

    That is definitely Terrorsaur. If not, then I'm a monkey's bare-assed uncle.

    And Noisemaise? Noisemaize is a great choice for Terrorsaur! :)

    Hmm..It seems unlikely for BotCon. From what I recall hearing there's only 5 BW characters in the set: Primal, Dinobot, Rhinox, Cheetor and Rattrap. And looking closer at the pics...(granted this is on my monitor so the colours may be different than others) But the red looks more ORANGE...and with the black, it reminds me more of a G1 Divebomb.

    Yeah, but that's only for the boxset.

    Like last year, I assume they'll have 1, maybe 2 extra bagged sets of completely different characters you can buy. That's probably what this red Divebomb and the brown one we saw the other day will be part of.

    For example: last year's set was Deathsaurus, Ironhide, Chromia, Ricochet, Fallback, Buzzclaw and Dirge. With the extra free Flamewar. And 2 bagged sets consisting of Ratchet and Flareup, and the 2 Virulent Clones.

    This worries me that the extra figures are a gaggle of this mold, just like last years ridiculous amount of mold reuses. If this is the case, I am so very disappointed.

    Maybe the two Divebombs aren't show exclusives, but rather club exclusives like Astrotrain?

    As far as I know there is no Terrorsaur toy being produced anytime soon.

    am I wrong or does this repaint has an Autobot crystal on his chest? if yes, then it's not BW related (Maximal - Predacon)

    and the blue energon weapons makes me think it's some kind of pre-energon combiner form

    unless this is BW Combiner Silverbolt long before the Maximal upgrade, that might make sence, somehow
