    How do you get all these figures they just keep announcing them. There is always the big Botcon 5-6 pack then like 5 more random figures. How does everyone get ahold of those?

    Awesome. DO WANT.

    EDIT: Am I the only one who thinks this looks like a digibash?

    If that's not going to be Drench, I'm really curious to hear the story behind Sideswipe switching sides.

    EDIT: Bah, already beaten to posting the image, since I was too busy watching Animated! :lol

    I kinda hope the spaces in the Autobot symbol aren't filled in on the final version. I bet they will be, since this is more likely a test sample to see how the colours look. I'd be happy to sacrifice the painted headlight covers for a properly done symbol.

    It's very cool of Fun Publications to do this one as well, given how this deco was originally planned but never came about for a retail release.

    Now all this set needs is the repainted Powerlinx Hotshot as Smokescreen and it really will have come full circle.

    The Smokescreen repaint is one FP can easily skip IMO - we've already gotten a Smokescreen recolor in Cybertron, we probably will in Universe, and even Botcon 08 Ricochet isn't far off from C. Smokescreen.

    It does, after a close inspection, especially if you look at the green bits over the spoiler. I can't make out enough of the site to tell who the seller is or if it's anyone who might be a scammer. It matches what we've been told the mold will look like. Hopefully final pics will be coming.

    I agree, this looks very much like a digi-bash. And I'm hoping that there will be some changes to the final deco.

    I think the story behind sideswipe will simply be that in the normal universe, he's very clostto being a decepticon in the way he has the killer instinct . i'm guessing that in this verse, he's got a bit too much compassion to be an autobot.

    What's weird is that the Goldbug and Grimlock auctions Icespark posted ALSo look like digibashes. I'm guessing these are placeholder pics until pics can be taken of the actual figures.


    I'm aware of that, but it also matches what we've been told the figure will look like.
