    Just curious if you had control over the theme of botcon and the toys what would you do? My idea is for a foc set with ultra magnus (wfc optimus repaint) blaster (wfc retool) Wasp (wfc bumblebee repaint) stepper (foc jazz repaint) starscream (classics cyclonus major retool) astrotrain (foc blast off repaint) the 2 souvenirs would be thundercracker and skywarp so what would you do?

    Set in the Prime universe, Mech finally develops their own "mech-suits" and takes it to the Transformers. Since the original Diaclone line was lifeless robots powered by little men, it's a good excuse to use Diaclone colors.

    Mech Assault

    Box Set
    Prime First Edition Optimus = Diaclone colors ( blue and black )
    Prime Wheeljack = Diaclone red Sunstreaker ( with new head )
    Prime Ratchet = Diaclone blue Trailbreaker ( with new head )
    Prime First Edition Bumblebee = Diaclone Bluestreak ( silver with black hood )
    Prime First Edition Cliffjumper = Diaclone Black Tracks ( new head )
    Prime Knock Out = Diaclone Tigertracks ( yellow Sideswipe ) ( new head )
    Mini Silis figure and 5 Mech soldiers

    Free toy
    Prime Kock Out = Clamp Down ( police deco, same new head as above ) Comes with Mech soldier

    Attendee Set 1
    Prime Ratchet = Black Trailbreaker ( same head as above )
    Prime First Edition Cliffjumper = Blue Tracks with flames ( same head as above )
    Jack and Raph figures ( different colors than entertainment pack )

    Attendee Set 2
    Prime First Edition Bulkhead = Brawn ( Green and brown, green darker than Hasbro FE Bulkhead, but lighter than Takara Bulkhead. All silver head. )
    Prime Wheeljack = Sunstreaker ( same new head as above )
    Miko figure ( different colors than entertainment pack )

    Attendee Set Troop Builder
    First Edition Starscream = Generic purple Decepticon seeker x3 ( or one each yellow, green, blue if colors can be different, as the rain makers. )

    I thought we just had this thread but oh well, fine with me:

    Theme 1: Headmasters

    Chromedome
    Hardhead
    Brainstorm
    Highbrow
    Cerebros

    Straight-up re-issues. No stupid repaints to turn them into imaginary characters. Just re-issues of the real toys as the real characters. Original decos and working gimmicks. I wouldn't mind paint instead of stickers, though.


    Following year's theme: Headmaster Juniors

    Goshoter
    Cab
    Minerva
    Wilder
    Bullhorn
    Cancer

    Same deal. Real toys, original decos, working gimmicks. These don't need weird paintjobs as obscure characters no one cares about to be worthwhile. The original releases of these toys are hard enough to come by and priced far enough outside of the average fan's ability to get them, that a re-issue is loooooonnnnnnngggg overdue.

    No way. I don't want headmaster reissues to be exclusives. I want to be able to order them from my favorite online store.

    That would definitely be better. Of course, in the real world, that would be what I'd want to happen.

    But I figured if I was designing the BotCon set in this imaginary deal, they'd comp me a free copy of all the figures. So either way, I'm good.

    Diaclone repaints: blue Prime, red Mirage, black Ironhide (hopefully out of the Energon Tow-Line mold, for increased nostalgia), blue Bluestreak, Marlboro Wheeljack (it would have to be altered to avoid trademark violation, but I figure they could get close), Browning-inspired Megatron recolor, police Sunstreaker/Sideswipe. Heck, I think red Sunstreaker and yellow Sideswipe would be cool, but much less obvious with Classics. Still, I'd like it :)

    Troop Builder: Midnight Express, Railspike and Rapid Run (Classics Astrotrain all different head sculpts)

    I'd like to see a Cybertron set, personally.

    Hotshot from Cannon Bumblebee
    Jetfire from RTS Lugnut
    Signal Lancer from Cybertron Mudflap. This would pobably be the only really HEAVY retool.
    Landmine from FE Bulkhead
    Scattorshot from DOTM Comettor


    For a freebie I'd love to see Beast Machines Jetstorm from RID Soundwave. They could do some slight retooling if it's needed, but realistically if they just include a stand there's a really good Hoverbot fanmode.

    And for Troop Builders I would absolutely purely love to see Hidden autobots. They could literally use just about any mold, but maybe for simplicity sake RID Cliffjumper, DOTM Leadfoot, and Animated Swindle with new heads.

    Needlenose - Classics Silverbolt (head remold)
    Spinister - Incinerator
    Hot Rod - Clocker
    Blurr - Cybertron Brakedown (head remold)
    Nightbeat - ROTF Nightbeat (head remold and instructions altered so you switch the feet around during transformation giving him Throttlebot feet)

    Micromasters

    Blazemaster - Evac, though it's not a stretch of the imagination as it is.
    Black Jack - Generations Windcharger
    Powertrain - Generations G2 Prime with alternate head
    Ironworks - Generations G2 Prime with alternate head
    Whisper - Titanium Seeker mold
    Storm Cloud - Titanium Seeker mold
    Freewheeler - ROTF Breakdown

    I'd like to see a Diaclone inspired box set using Classics molds...Blue Optimus, Black Ironhide, Red Mirage, Police Sunstreaker just to name a few. It might be fun to see Classics molds with Movie inspired paint jobs too...Optimus w/flames, Black Ironhide, green Ratchet, silver Jazz, Starscream w/ cybertronian tattoos...
