    So we've seen Megatron and Waspinator from The "DOFP" Botcon exclusives. What if they DO surprise us with the rest of the Darksyde crew at Botcon? What would you like to see? The Maximal side has two basics, two deluxes and a larger sized leader, with two head resculpts. If we get that same ratio for the Preds, that leaves us with one basic and two deluxes, with one head sculpt left. Here's what I'd like to see.


    Terrorsaur - RobotMasters Air Raid repaint (basic)
    Scorponok - Energon Barricade repaint (deluxe)
    Tarantulas - Cybertron Unicron repaint with new head sculpt. (deluxe)


    Seriously, how much would that rock?

    I think they've used up all their money for new heads, and Unicron is too a figure for them to use, but I'd love to see the rest of the crew. Scrapmetal as Tarantulus could work... might be too new as well though.

    I'd really like to see that. They just might surprise us with them, but I seriously think that you won't see any new head molds though if they did.

    I'd personally like to see...

    Scorponok = Dirt Boss
    Terrorsaur = E. Starscream
    Tarantulas = Scrapmetal

    That's my take on 'em.

    Yeah, at one point I thought maybe Dirt Boss would work as Scorponok, and I was considering Scrapmetal as Tarantulas until I realized that a Tarantulus head on Unicron's body in the Tarantulas colors would look pretty sweet indeed.

    Yeah, I do agree that a Cybertron Unicron with a remolded head would look awesome for a Tarantulas, but I figure that the mold is still too new for them to be able to use it for the 'con. However, that old rule could be out the window also since they never would have been allowed to use the current line's (Cybertron's) molds at all previously. Before it had to be from line's that weren't in ciculation, but it seems that's changed... so who knows really. Would be cool too.

    Actually, someone over at Tfans posted a nice Tarantulas repaint of Ransack. Honestly, I'd just like to see them offer Tarantulas, Scorponok and Terrorsaur in pre-BW forms, whatever molds they use.

    I thought they were going to do a red Energon Divebomb as Terrorsoar?

    I've seen the red divebomb, but everytime someone mentions Terrorsaur, it gets pointed out that none of the DOFP characters will have beast forms of any kind. I'm betting those are supposed to be reformatted versions of Laserbeak and Buzzsaw, much like Ravage in "The Agenda." I guess we'll know when the convention starts.

    I'd go for:

    Tarantulas--Cyb. Ransack
    Terrorsaur--MW Megatron/plex
    Scorpnok--BM Scavenger

    OOH. BM Scavenger could conceviably work as Scorponok. Especially those claws.
