    Botcon '07 Exclusives speculation thread

    Granted, I'm only guessing here, but these are the characters I think will be the exclusives for this year.....

    Beachcomber (Cybertron Hardtop remold)
    Seaspray (Cybertron Shortround remold)
    Brawn (Cybertron Overhaul remold)
    Sunstorm (Classic Starscream repaint)

    That's all I can think of. Anyone else care to speculate who the exclusives will be?? :inquisiti

    Well that makes me think of those kitbashed Predacons; which, although nice looking, wouldn't sit at all well with me for such an expensive set.

    Aren't they supposed to be doing Classic exclusives this year?

    The remaining seekers are a strong possibility for sure.
    Megatron retooled as Shockwave.
    Cybertron Unicron as Classic Bludgeon.
    Classic Mirage repaint ala Machine Wars Prowl
    Classic Bumblebee as Classic Glyph

    I'm hoping for the other three Seekers and maybe a Goldbug. The three Seekers could work out nicely if one were in the boxed set, one were an attendee exclusive and one were the on-the-door exclusive. That said, I'm sure a lot of people would be up in arms if that were done.

    I'd also throw in for a blue Alt Rumble if he were perhaps the "Megatron & Waspinator" exclusive for this year's show.

    Just as long as it's not Classics Thundercracker, Dirge and Thrust. If it is I'm going to be PISSED.

    Much as I'd dig the other characters in the fan comic, we've already seen one of them as a Club Exclusive, and I'd be more inclined to count on Razorclaw/Leobreaker and Divebomb/E Swoop as more of the same. Plus, I also thought that Classics molds were already confirmed?

    all was said was Classics characters, that COULD mean that they use Cybertron molds or other molds to fit G1 characters into the Classics universe.

    OR it could mean they are using Classics molds.

    Or maybe even a mix of both. I for one would LOVE a Razorclaw figure out of Leobreaker, but I don't really see them carrying that on to this year.

    But you never know.

    I think Stunticons would be cool but I doubt they'd go that route (an all Decepticon set?)

    Prime - Motormaster
    Mirage - Dragstrip
    Rodimus - Breakdown
    Bumblebee - Dead End
    Cyb Downshift - Wildrider

    SO agreed with. That would kick all kinds of ass to see. Hopefully FP take all these sort of suggestions and remember them for future reference.

    I really don't get why people continue to mention Stunticons, where that idea keeps coming from is beyond me. And would not be very appealing whatsoever. Additionally it was mentioned on the club boards that there is very little black paint in this set (I'm sure that Shaun C has mentioned that somewhere in a thread here as well) which leaves them out...And will actually leave out the Predacons as well, since they have black as well.

    What set? I'm not seeing anything.

    and now liokaiser, you put up the 2nd link that i got to..but i think my settings are different, cuz i allow 20 messages per page...whats the actual post number?

    EDIT:nevermind, i found it..post 26....

    those do look cool, and if that was the set, id be excited cuz i dont want it...except the possibilty of razorclaw...but id most likely save me some money

    Abrogate if you check that last few pages you have a Leozack and Jarga. Both look good. Lumpy look at post 26.

    Gods I hope its not the predacons, personally I didn’t like them as a set and the fact they don’t combine just makes them seem all kinds of pointless.

    Stunticon I can’t imagine would be much better.

    While leokaiser seems interesting I really don’t see it as a set either.

    Well as it looks like I might actually get to go this year I am hoping for:

    Thundercracker
    Sunstorm
    Thrust
    Dirge

    Maybe Thunderwing from classic jetfire

    Nightbeat from C hotshot
    Bludgeon from either classic tank megatron or C Unicron
    Runabout from classic bumblebee
    Runamuck from classic bumblebee

    Dinobot from classic grimlock, I know doesn’t really fit with the others but I can’t help but think that classic grimlock looks more like BW dinobot than any one even grimlock.

    Well with a 5 figure set I'm thinking the same formula as last year...2 Basics, 2 Deluxes and 1 larger figure...

    For basic choices we have:

    Huffer (Armorhide)
    Beachcomber (Hardtop)
    Seaspray (Shortround)
    Warpath (Sureshot...and since I don't think it fits as well...probably a longshot)

    Armorhide could also be colored in G1 Prime colors to make the attendee exclusive as Optimus Minor :p 

    Deluxes are pretty much the sky is the limit...they could go just about anywhere with these...

    Thundercracker (Clas Starscream)
    Thrust (Ramjet)
    Dirge (Ramjet)
    Sunstorm (Clas Starscream)

    (Yeah, there would be screaming, but like with Ratchet and Ironhide I'd rather get them from Botcon than NOT get them at all if Hasbro has no plans to actually release them....) A couple other good (IMHO) choices:

    Jazz (Crosswise)
    Bluestreak (Cyb Downshift with a new head....blue & silver muscle car :D  )

    The larger figure is even harder to pin down IMHO....maybe one of these...

    Trypticon (Scourge in Legends colors)
    Whirl or Springer (Cyb Evac)
    Razorclaw (Leobreaker)
    Motormaster / Menasor / Nemesis Prime (Clas Optimus)
