    That's actually pretty cool. Bonus points for pretty obviously not being the obvious G2 Grimlock repaint.

    Best guess so far is G2 Cindersaur, ie: the G2 Firecon that didn't exist until now.

    That's... still putrid. He looks like a Constructicon trying to put on a Barney costume.

    And I still have no clue who it is and the Megatron helmet is not helping, it's far too iconic to repaint. Didn't we go over this with RiD Bludgeon?

    There's a yellow outline of the G2 decepticon symbol at the top of his leg in t-rex mode.

    yep.....definitely not Grimlock. I'm baffled by the choice here, whatever it is. I think they could have used another recognizable G2 figure. In my opinion, this will be a low point of the otherwise pretty strong set.

    Again, the prevailing opinion is Cindersaur. The other two Firecons were released in G2, and they shared green and purple colours, with a third colour in translucent plastic.

    This guy has the bright green and purple secondary/tertiary colours, and has a good amount of translucent blue.

    I'm not really a fan of the mold, but that color scheme is amazing. In the first thread, I was kind of on the fence about it, but seeing the bot mode has me sold. I love it no matter what character it is.

    So much for my thoughts that it might be G2 Motormaster. Right colors, completely wrong placement.

    I have become less and less excited about this year's Botcon toys. I think it's just an off year for me as far as Botcon goes. I'm still buying them and appreciate the effort put into them, just not as excited.

    Okay, so let's follow some logic here... I think I know what's going on.

    The original teaser for this year was "Next year, at Botcon 2010, the Transformers will revisit a generation many thought was lost and a battle for the future will begin."

    So let's see what we have here. Late Euro G1 Transformers, normal and Action Masters alike, lost G2 characters, especially if the Double Punch rumor pans out. A suspected lost Firecon. Some random generics, and the "wild card" as he's described, Sky-byte. Well for most of these toys, the future was 1993, the beginning of G2 and the resurgence of Transformers as a brand. We really could be witnessing G 1.5 here, the story in the lost time between G1 and G2. We know Spark, Clench, and Rapido survived to fight on in G2, and Breakdown would reappear in the far future, but if the story tells of a battle through time and space, where Sky-byte is separated from his Sharkticon troops, G2 Cindersaur is killed before being able to join his bothers, and Scorch and the Actionmasters fade in the the background... it could bring it all around quite well.
