    Lots of speculation threads lately eh? I've been wondering who could they possibly turn into a character named Land shark and I have who I consider a top candidate for the role. I know a lot of people are probably thinking Energon sharkticon but I just don't see how they'd show "land shark" with his alt mode having no wheels.


    Here's my choice for the mold:

    Does anyone else think he's gonna be it? If you think it's gonna be a remold of someone else please tell us your thoughts and choice for the mold.


    We can also discuss Flak here, I'm pretty sure he's gonna be a repaint of Cybertron Scout Scattorshot

    I think he's a character they made just for Botcon so no info is available on him as of yet.

    Yeah more likely that mold NGW. Energon Sharticon could be landshark.
    This is regarding the botcon figures right?

    I have to agree probably Energon Sharkticon. Plus, that pic you showed is a cross between something with four legs and a whale.

    How about the original Cybershark mold that was turned into Hellscream, Sharpedge, and Overbite?

    He made an appearance as recently as the end of the Universe 1.0 line.

    He's called Landshark. I'd say the land part is a better descriptor of his alt mode.

    Torca could easily be remolded to resemble a shark, all they have to do is remove his tusks and paint the whale's flesh silver/gray like a shark's and repaint his eyes. He fits the land shark description perfectly imo.

    Someone on alt.toys.transformers mentioned Dark Crumplezone as a possibility. It's pointy and finny -- with a shark-mouth deco on the vehicle mode "nose", I think that'd be very cool. Plus, he's got the toothy mouth in bot mode.

    I hope it's not E. Sharkticon, because I want them to use that mold for Scourge. (And I'm betting they're going to avoid reusing a mold within the box set itself.)

    Or there's always this:

    Awesome... I remember right before RiD came out, there were fans TERRIFIED that Hasbro was going to import Webdiver as the next TF series.
