    Great colors for a great mold. If I could get any botcon exclusive, it would be Scourge though.

    Guess Thunderclash is Energon Rodimus then. Or some random figure that really way off the wall.

    So far the only one that is more than "meh" is Leozack. I get the feeling that this may be the first year I sell the toys.

    Huh, wasn't expecting that mold, but it does look nice. Almost looks like he's supposed to be a Roadbuster homage, imo. This is one mold I wouldn't mind owning, but I most likely won't ever get this version. Maybe I'll try and get ahold of the original version and paint it up in similar colors, or something different. It's nice to see another figure in this set that isn't mostly blue. It'll be interesting to see what the others look like. May sound odd, but I'm already thinking about what next years set could be (will be the first year I might be able to go depending on where it is). Another Classics styled set, or a RID homage set would be nice, imo.

    As much as I like this mold... I'd have preferred it on Thunderclash. That means there's a very good chance Thunderclash is gonna be Energon Rodimus. Or the deluxe Energon Optimus. Or something completely out of left field.

    Man, I really wanted a Sharkticon repaint. He hasn't been repainted yet.

    Still, great deco on a good figure. My favorite from the boxset so far.

    actually, it makes sense...landmine, landquake, landshark...the mold shares LAND across the board...

    After reading Landshark's quote... I think I love him twice as much now. That's the best motto EVER.

    Wow, must have I need him! I like the color scheme and the fact that he is Ultra class.

    That is one of the best TF molds ever and definitely the best from the Energon line. It's great to see it again, and if Hasbro ever decided to put it in the Universe line, I'd pounce on it in a heartbeat. This deco is really nice, too, but all I can think of is Roadbuster. You'd think with a name like Landshark, it would look more like Chevy Chase... :wink:
