    Looking forward to next years goodies, what would you guys like to see?

    I would love a TFA set

    Autolooper (Ratchet repaint with new head)
    Silver Ironhide (Ironhide repaint)
    Hubcap (BB Repaint)
    Oilslick (repaint and change the wheels to tracks like transwarped)

    Ramjet (normal if not done by then, if it has chuck in his helmet)
    Sunstorm (new head sculpt)

    Maybe a leader Megs in G1 Galvatron colors (don`t know if that would be cool or not???)

    I'll be happy as long as they never use those A/E/C molds ever again... :lol 

    But honestly, Be it either Animated or Classics 2.0/Universe based - It'll be a great set :)

    I think they should make a big chunk of the next mainline after the movie Botcon exclusives. Then watch the inevitable shitstorm between the "why can't I buy them at retail?!" and "it's my reward for going to Botcon." crowds.

    I really think it will be TFA or Uni based. Especially since we will still be coming out of movieville

    Use Metroplex instead of Optimus Prime: the short robot mode=Motormaster, then mold some connector pieces for the minicon pegs and the cars and they could mount on the tall robot mode's limbs to form Menasor.

    Though there is the issue of Universe SE Dragstrip already existing... maybe do just Dragstrip in G2 colors.

    I would like to see shattered glass computron. As seen in latest tfcc magazine. He looks like abominus. Doubt it would happen as we don't have the molds

    Do we know if they can use animated molds due to cartoon network licensing? No movie next year so we another seeker-level sh*tstorm so here's my two pence.

    If it's animated molds with movie deco:
    Ironhide (black sentinel prime)
    Sideswipe (silver blurr)
    Jolt (blue bumblebee)
    Chromia (samurai prowl in blue)
    Bonecrusher (voyager bulkhead)
    Long Haul (wreck-gar)
    Jetfire (black blitzwing or starscream)
    Constructicon or Brawl (shockwave)
    Fallen (green/black voyager cybertron megatron)

    I'd love a set full of toys, with some addons that you can only get at the con. Maybe they could give a free one to attendees too.

    What do people think of that?

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere (in a recent Botcon 2009 thread) that FP said that the Animated molds are off-limits for the forseeable future. I can't remember which Botcon thread it was and I don't feel like trying to find it amongst all the new Botcon threads. However, I do remember seeing it.

    My guess is that next year's set will be heavy on Universe 2.0 molds. Which would be all right with me. Just please no A/E/C molds!

    A Classics/Universe set in Diaclone colors:

    Sentinel Prime (Powered Convoy blue cab)
    Clampdown (Police Sideswipe)
    Armorhide (Black Ironhide)
    Spoiler (Red Mirage)
    Bluestreak (Blue Bluestreak)

    And for the freebie/extras:

    Deep Cover (Black Sideswipe)
    Takedown (Police Sunstreaker)


    Past that, I'd say how about a kit to add weapons/heads to certain repaints? A Cliffjumper head, for starters. Or a Runamuck head for Bugbite.

    I've posted this so many times everyone knows what's coming. :lol 

    The Classics/Universe molds are begging for a Diaclone-themed redo. Give toys like "black Ironhide", "blue Bluestreak", "red Mirage", and "white Sunstreaker" real names, functions, and bios. Not Diaclone, but Universe Inferno would make a fun Artfire, too.

    New G1 characters for the win, from my perspective.

    EDIT: Or just look one post up. :lol

    Seriously did they cancel diaclone red mirage? Those hts special editions must not have done well enough.

    diaclone colors would be appropriate for botcon. But they would need their nearest english-japnese diaclone names instead of their direct 84' autobot range.

    I could totaly get behind the stunticons thing, or even a protectobots thing with universe molds. Even if they never combined it would be cool.
