    You know how Botcon tweeted a couple days ago about how it's like TMNT well sorta their is a female, and their is one more figure in the set but it's not a Stunticon.

    My theory is that Dragstrip is supposed to be a evil version of April O'Niel. Also for some reason Wildrider kinda reminds me of Casey Jones?

    Well what do you guys think about what this means?

    No, they're taking a crack at how TMNT added a fifth, female turtle in the "Next Mutation" series. They're saying they're not TMNT because they're not adding an extra member to an established iconic group, that's all.

    I figure the sixth figure will be "Menasor", and will be a bigger figure, maybe leader scale.

    Maybe it'll be a commissioned Radicon mod that allows them to combine. /pipe dream

    That may make sense. Do the toys they have revealed already have the ability to combine?

    In regards to the original question (that's all I read, sorry). i think they meant (as others have suspected) that they didn't want people to think they were adding a 6th member that was totally going to throw off the group dynamic and make it compeltely different from what it was (which is what TMNT: TNM did)

    I personally do not like these figures that much. I like the Stunticons.

    Of the BotCon exclusives, Breakdown is the only one I like right now. I would maybe go for Dead End, but I do not like the Stache. I can't see myself forking out $300 for these at the convention. I may just have to go and pay general admission. I will have to wait and see who the other exclusives are.

    Would a seperate Menasor character really be considered adding an extra member though? Menasor has always been part of the Stunticons.

    Would ROTF Oilpan count as an extra Stunticon since he's a mold brother of ROTF Breakdown who is a homage to G1 Breakdown? Then again Dragstrip has shared a mold with Fracture and the traitor, Mirage.
