    BotCons have had some pretty good sets (Like the Stunticons), and some not do good ones. (Like this years, to say one.)

    But I had the idea for something else. How about a Dark Energon box set for TFP? It'd be your typical zombie-style set. It'd go:

    Box set: Day of the Terrorcons.

    Ratchet (Correct painjob, comes with the Ravage chainsaw Minicon)
    Terrorcon Cliffjumper (RiD retool)
    Terrorcon Bulkhead (DE wounds and head sculpt)
    Terrorcon Arcee (DE wounds, and head sculpt)
    Terrorcon Bumblebee (DE wounds, and head sculpt)
    Terrorcon Optimus Prime (DE wounds, and head sculpt)

    Two-pack 1:
    Knockout (Acurate paintjob)
    Terrorcon Vehicon (DE wounds)

    Two-Pack 2:
    Starscream (Unaltered voyager)
    Terrorcon Soundwave (DE damage)

    Freebe figure:
    Terrorcon Wheeljack

    Does this set sound interesting, or is it stupid and you wouldn't want to see it?

    Your effort is appreciated, but no thanks. Give us a proper 'Classics' Diaclone set please. Or, cool obscure figures.

    I much rather see Machine War updates for a Botcon set.

    That way I can avoid having my heart broken over sets I would kiss a hippo's behind for a mass release and know I wouldnt be able to get them then. Like the Pre Beast Wars and Animated Botcon sets.

    I really think that the botcon sets need to follow a trend. I think the shattered glass series and animated sets need building on.

    This.

    But a diaclone set would be great as well.

    Sounds too much like a wannabe Shattered Glass with a bunch of essentially evil Autobots. Of course, this means Botcon will likely go for it.

    I actually like the idea. Maybe it's just the idea of a lone Ratchet with a chainsaw fighting off a zombie hoards that I like, but I think it's a cool idea.

    I would LOVE a zombie-themed one, but with different setups.

    Isn't that set essentially just a Transformers Prime version of Evil Dead? I mean, you even give the one good guy the chainsaw and turn all his friends into evil zombies.

    Sounds pretty uninteresting to me. Also, a ~$100 two pack that includes a retail version of a $20 voyager? No.

    I'd personally like a troop builder set of Prime Terrorcons - the Bumblebee as a Terrorcon idea from Japan works for me, I'd take a trio of them as zombies.

    As far as the non-zombie ones goes, I don't think Botcon should really do premium decos when there's more interesting stuff they could be tackling, like Classics versions of lesser known guys like their Kickoff this year. I wouldn't mind seeing as an attendee exclusive Prime Arcee as Flamewar though - bring home that Botcon tradition!
