    Hey TF fans!

    Let's help Fun Pub out by giving them some cool ideas. They can be digibashes, customs or drawings if you so prefer (keep in mind that Fun Pub is in the repaint business though if you do customs or draw), but do try to include some picture at least as :useless  The idea being that you get creative and show what you would want. I urge you all to stay positive in this thread and leave any potential discussion about if the repaints suggested here would sell or not out, but instead praise and show your support for the stuff you like.

    So to get the ball rolling - I'd love to see the earlier classics figures redone to be more cartoon accurate. We've seen Takara acknowledge the need for it with United megatron for example, so I gave Henkei Red Alert a similar treatment, just for the hell of it...and now...I kinda want it :p

    Dear Admin:
    I appreciate that you are doing your best to make sure that we, the community follow the rules. HOWEVER - I have reincluded the picture you deleted as it is not breaking the rules. I thought this would be very clear as I stated in my post that this was something I have digibashed.

    Furthermore, the site it is linked from is not only an image host - but it is a site that I pay for, am developing and nobody but me can make the kind of replacement you talked about. It is in no shape or form hotlinking. So therefore I would appreciate it if you would leave my images well enough alone.

    Thank you.


    The only thing I'd like to add to that toy with the new redeco would be a g1 style handgun + shoulder missile

    Unfortunately, I have no way of digibashing... However, my idea is easily imagined lol. Classics Ironhide ad RID X-Brawn, Generations Red Alert as RID Prowl, and RTS Optimus as RID Scourge! We already have Sideburn... Easy enough to at the very least complete the Autobot brothers and as a nice add on, give us that Scourge we all want!

    I'll see if I can't digibash some of that tomorrow for you, just to show you how it looks.

    Oh, cool. That'd be awesome... They seem like the best molds to finish the trio, at least the way I'm imagining them.... Granted, there'd need to be new head molds. But that's nothing FP can't take care of... Lol

    Once again, I'm saying that FoC Bruticus -> Ruination and RtS Optimus -> Scourge is the way to go. Bam. That's your themed box set.

    I like the idea of seeing items with different deco but I'd like to see how it turns out in both robot AND alt mode. Also, I'll be nice and only mention once that an anime accurate deco probably won't get enough people interested to shell out $60 to make it worth the club's time.

    Just for a real change...

    Take G1 Predaking, a mixture of new animal heads and new robot heads, maybe re-tooled accessories, head and back-pack - and bam! The Autobot zoos very own Anibots!

    Diaclone homages - blue Bluestreak, red Mirage, black Ironhide, Marlboro Wheeljack; all that jazz. At least the blue Bluestreak. He's a no-brainer!

    What would be a nice nod to RiD, and something that previous a Botcon has done as well, is to make a prequel box set to RiD, ala Dawn of Future's past. You could retool FoC Bruticus and WfC/FoC Prime into Ruination and Scourge's pre RiD form. This would make more sense than having an Cybertronian Bruticus and Earth mode Prime into RiD Ruination/Scourge, plus of course, it prevents the fan rage of having Scourge be a Botcon exclusive.

    I want an exclusive power core combiner using Heavy Tread's mold and some of the military drone vehicles. The combiner will use a name I've been asking FP to use for a long time. He will be called Combinabot.

    Found this when I was digging through some of my old files:

    Not my best work, but hey - someone might get a kick out of it. I'll update the first post with all the digibashes I do, both for myself and for the people that can't make their own.

    This year's Botcon set has disapointed many people. Personally I think FunPub has been using the Classics and Classics Like molds far too much in the past few years.

    I really loved the look of that Animated set, so here's my idea.

    Shattered Glass Animated-verse:

    Prowl as SG Prowl
    Sentinel Prime as SG Sentinel Prime
    Lockdown as SG Lockdown with remolded IE nicer/heroic looking head sculpt
    Grimlock as SG Grimlock
    Oil Slick as SG Oil Slick
    Freebie Cliffjumper Activator as SG Cliffjumper

    First Bonus Set Shockwave/Longarm Prime as SG Shockwave/Longarm Prime
    Black Arachnia as SG Black Arachnia

    Second Bonus Set Cybertron Mode Megatron as SG Megatron
    Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime as SG Optimus

    Troop Builder Set Activators Seeker Mold as SG Seekers Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp or Ramjet, Dirge and Thrust.

    And there you have it, another Expensive Animated Botcon set that I personally will have trouble getting, as I still need the Stunticons set and all those figures that came with it last year. Ah well, I'd say it'd be a nice change from all these Classics molds and AEC molds that FunPub keeps bringing out.

    I would digibash these if I even remotely knew how. And I hope my idea is in the right type of thread. Enjoy folks.

    I like the idea, although realistically, Prime and/or Megatron should be part of the boxed set :)

    This is a great idea. Perfect exclusives... appealing to collectors, but not necessary to complete every collection.

    ... and dare I ask what the drama is about the images?
