    Nice!
    So sad that the Classics line was a filler.
    Some of the best figures ever.

    QFT. I severely hope they resurrect the line after the movie.

    This seller has what's listed as a BOTCON Darksyde Testshot (repaint of Armada Hoist).

    Isn't "Darksyde Hoist" just an Axalon Dinobot?

    Yep, it's just Dinobot from last year. Cybertron Longrack with Armada Hoist's head (or Armada Hoist with Cybertron Longrack's arm, depending on who you'd want to see get first billing ;) ).

    I have no problems passing on this set now that I've seen them all. They're good for collectors, but the coneheads just seem a bit too plain for me, doesn't help I was never a big fan of them anyway. And Dreadwind and Bugbite are meh-ish repaints at best to me, not a big fan of either of them really. Only one I really want is T-cracker to round out my three original seekers.

    Though having said that, they're still some nice figs.

    Looking through his store the guy is also selling just Thrust and a Alt. Rodimus.

    If I had the cash I'd bid. Just to tell myself at least I bid.

    God I really wish they'd release these to the mass. I can't afford botcon right now (new job and no vacation time yet), but I really want these and don't want to be 100bucks for them on Ebay.

    Actually, the test shot in that auction is just Armada Hoist. It doesn't have the Longrack/Dinobot arm modifications.

    And Dinobot was still a Predacon at that point, so it was "Darksyde Dinobot".

    Not the right combination of mold parts to be an actual proto for last year's exclusive. If it had the retooling from Longrack and the original Hoist head, it would be believable, but I think he's trying to make more off a run of the mill Hoist test shot.
