    Just a general curiosity to see what otha fans would like from botcon 2011, or betta, if anyone has heard any rumours.

    Personally think a combined TF: Masterforce/Victory Botcon would be kool, as you,d have the following:

    Con - OVERLORD!!!! (Nuff said)
    Either Or - DoubleDealer (Who else enjoyed the smash he made in IDW afer Roddy shot him off a mountain?)
    Bot - Blacker (Gripper)
    Bot - Braver (Motorvater)
    Bot - Laster (Flame. Mad Scientist?)
    Bot - Victory Leo (If he had an aerial mode that wasnt a block with wings)
    Bot - Metelhawk (Could give him an Elite Gaurd Insignia)
    Con - Hellbat (why not have a hypnotist?)
    Con - Guyhawk (Gailhawk)
    Con - Jarugar (repaint of a rescueforce Bot)
    Con - Drillhorn (Same as above)
    Con - Killbison (Just a kool name :D  )

    So c,mon people, make yourselves heard, what would you like for botcon 2011 if you had the choice? :D

    Never even thought of that, silly me. :D  Would be good if they brought out RID, more figures to go with the Sideburn figure the TF Club is bringing out. :D

    They already used both the Universe Sideswipe and Universe Prowl mold. What would they use for Prowl?

    Also, what would they use for Prime? Cybertron Prime would be a little large (and a little old by this point), and they already used the Universe Inferno mold.

    I'd like a Masterforce theme using PCC commanders

    Huffer -> Ginrai
    Leadfoot -> Roadking
    Skyburst -> Hydra /Buster

    the list goes on.

    Who would be a good mold for Star Saber? Yes, he was an arrogent ponce, but would still be a good figure if the theme was Masterforce or Victory.

    I'd like to see... Machine Wars. Only make it it's own little micro universe and not connected to G1. Then go wild and unpredictable with the characters. Everything you think you know is wrong.

    Cybertron Defense Red Alert as Soundwave.
    HFD Tomahawk as Sandstorm
    Blah blah blah

    Oh yes! RID anniversary theme! :drool: 

    The box could consist of;
    Prowl=Generations Drift/Blurr
    X-Brawn=ROTF Gears
    Grimlock=ROTF Voyager Demolisher
    Scourge=Scourge RID mold :) 
    Jhiaxus=Classics Jetfire

    I keep dreaming...
    Just think if we were to get a Bullet Train Team (Railspike, Rapid run and Midnight express) :rock

    I think most of the CR/RID molds that were new are still fantastic molds, not much of a reason to update them. So instead make a Botcon CR/RID set that:
    -Finally gives collectors a JRX/Railracer repaint since he's too cost prohibitive for Hasbro to re-use
    -Gives the Pred Trio vehicular bodies similar to Sky-Byte's update
    -Expands the ranks of the Predacons/Decepticons since they were so out-numbered before(Use G1 names/characters to do this so it'll also appeal to more strict geewuners/Classics collectors)


    So here's a set that does all that:

    *Boxed set:
    -"Super-Charged" Railracer(repaints of Railspike, Rapid Run, & Midnight Express)
    -Captain Towline(E.Roadblock with new head) [No Parking Enforcement]
    vs.
    -Predacon Apeface(BWX Apetimus with new head) [a new RID character but also a "Classics" character]
    -Predacon Cutthroat(Cyb.Brimstone with new head) [a new RID character but also a "Classics" character]

    *Attendee Gift figure: Predacon Wildfly(Cutthroat repaint) [a new RID character but also a "Classics" character]

    *Souvenir pack #1:
    -Destructicon Commander Jhiaxus(U2 Powerglide with new head[homage to comic Jhiaxus & RID Jhiaxus])
    -Predacon Commander Galvabolt(Megabolt Megatron in RID Galvatron colors)

    *Souvenir pack #2:
    -Darkscream(Classics Astrotrain repaint)
    -Gas Skunk(U2 Octane repaint)
    -Slapper(Classics Deluxe Tank Megatron repaint)

    *Armybuilder 3-pack: Autotroopers(repaints of Autotrooper Captain Towline)
    [Speeding Enforcement Autotrooper]
    [Traffic Light Enforcement Autotrooper]
    [Turn Signal Enforcement Autotrooper]

    Basic storyline: While Galvabolt upgrades himself and lavishes attention on his new Predacon recruits, Jhiaxus also upgrades and takes command of the neglected Predacons by upgrading them into vehicular Destructicons.

    With their respective troops, Jhiaxus & Galvabolt (comically) spoil each others' plans so it's not hard for Railracer and Towline with his traffic-violation-enforcing Autotroopers to thwart both the Predacons and Destructicons.

    Cameos from Club Side Burn, BC Sky-Byte & "Generations/RTS" Black Convoy(RID Scourge repaint of G2 Optimus Prime)

    Could have a Micromasters themed botcon, storyline would have them given bigger bodies? I mean Big Daddy has been done, and Flak was done as part of botcon 2009, so why not have the following?:

    Boxset: Micromaster Commander Airwave (retool of any generations seeker plus new head)
    Micromaster Big Hauler (retool of G2 United op prime with new head)
    Micromaster Blazemaster (retool of energon evac with new head)
    Micromaster Crumble (retool of united grapple with diff head)
    Micromaster Tracer (retool of energon bulkhead with diff head)

    Souvenir set 1 :Vanquish & Fireshot (retool of Universe silverbolt & jetfire)

    Souvenir set 2: Strikedown & Power-run (retool of ROTF Seaspray & Energon sharkticon with diff heads)

    Freebee Sunrunner (retool of Universe Powerglide with diff head)

    I'm sorry but no one is even closet as to what next year set is. I been told and have been email pics of the protptypes of the figures. If your a club member and have read the comic strip in the magazine. They have put some many clues out its not even funny. Then maybe I'm only noticeding the clues as I know what the theme and toys are. They are working on how they will be sold like who is going into the box set, who's the attending freebie, who's going in addon pack 1, pack 2, and pack 3 will be anotherr army building set. Personal I Don't care the army set maybe cause it only a deluxce firgure. A cheap on at that. No I can not tell you the theme, but they should be a major update to the botcon website around late janurary or earlier feburary. That my 2 cents

    Oh by the way we may have a teaser updated around xmas, it all hang on it they have some plans locked in

    I might as well throw my hat into the ring and speculate what the theme is for Botcon 2011 as well.

    Crisis on Infinite Cybertrons

    This is something I coined in the "Show your TFs 2010" thread, where someone had their toys from numerous different lines battling each other. I know it's probably not the theme as gen1fan here allegedly said (though I'm going to take his words with a grain of salt), but hell, I just wanted to post my idea. Anywho, Crisis on Infinite Cybertrons!

    Story: In the never-ending war between the Autobots and the Decepticons, reinforcements have mysteriously arrived on both sides. But these new characters aren't necessarily native to the Generation 1 universe. These Transformers eventually find out that something has caused a giant rip in the multiverse, causing Transformers from one universe to cross over into another. The Autobot Theoretician Skids brings together the foreign Cybertronians to stop the rip from creating any more anomalies in the multiverse. Unless the rip is sealed, it may create a crisis...across all Cybertrons.

    Some of these are ideas that WhiteMocha had in his Botcon 2010 predictions digibash thread (which I guess could now be called Botcon 2011 predictions, since 2010 is almost over :lol ), so to WhiteMocha, if I'm stealing your ideas, I apologize in advance.

    The Five Pack:
    -Skids (Universe 2.0 Ironhide Repaint, with remolded G1 head)
    -Armada Wheeljack (Universe 2.0 Sideswipe Repaint)
    -Shattered Glass Thunderwing (Universe 2.0 Silverbolt Repaint, with remolded head)
    -G2 Manta Ray (HFTD Seaspray Repaint)
    -RID Ro-Tor (HFTD Tomahawk Repaint, with remolded head)

    I can't think of any more, but this is just something I wanted to throw out there.

    Wouldn't work. They already did that back in 2008, and I don't think Botcon could do a sequel theme. But hey, I'm more than willing for that to happen. Give me Shattered Glass Thunderwing! :D
