    i've been starting to think about this with the Botcon exclusives showing up.

    Options i can think of:
    the #1 thing i could see happening is Universe Lio Prime redeco'd as G1 Razorclaw (i feel like the headsculpt was made with this idea in mind)

    and/or an Animated Nemesis Prime (since that's been an ongoing theme with the exclusives)

    i don't see them bringing back Titanium or Alts this year, those lines seem pretty DOA for the time being.

    your thoughts?

    Well, as we've been getting a big and a large exclusive for the past two years I'd guess Sunstorm from the Classics Seeker mold & possibly Razorclaw from the Leo Prime Universe remold (as you said... it definitely seems that head was created with that eventuality in mind)... though it's just as easy for either of them to wind up as store exclusives as well.

    I do agree with you 100% though that I highly doubt we'll see any Alternators or Titaniums this year (heck, we didn't get an alternator last year) and, while there were two more planned Titaniums... I don't see them doing either of them as they had new molded parts when they were shown off at Botcon (Soundblaster came with Ravage instead of a repainted Laserbeak & Primal Prime had a face plate molded on).

    If Hasbro's killing that line, there could be worse ways of ending it. I'd dig that!:thumb

    We always seem to get a black repaint for SDCC, so I'd say one of the exclusives will be either Animated Nemesis Prime or Titanium Soundblaster w/Buzzsaw.

    Animated Nemesis Prime or a Universe Razorclaw would be quite alright by me.

    I would also approve of Classics Sunstorm.

    I really want to go this year, it's just a matter of finding roommates I think.

    yeah, i don't know why, but Sunstorm seems more like a store exclusive to me ~ i bet we see some "movie exclusives" using classics 1 and 2.0 molds like this... not that it's a for-sure indicator, but they have yet to do a deluxe class exclusive...
    true, but they could always busting out those repaints without remolding them ~ i could see either of those happening... also, if they showed it at Botcon, the tooling MAY have already been done...

    Personally, I hope it's another Stunticon. Even though I don't even have Drag Strip or Wildrider yet.

    Good point. Still it could go either way with Sunstorm. Also, we know he's somewhere on their to do list as Acid Storm was originally supposed to be Sunstorm.

    Fair enough... though considering my distaste for the Titanium line I'm hoping not. But, hey, if they do good for those that want them.

    That would be cool. I could see them doing Dead End out of the Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold. I could also see them doing Breakdown from that mold. Motormaster would be a bit tougher as any mold that would fit has already been "Nemesis'ed" so to speak...

    Stunticon Dead End from the universe sideswipe mold?

    Sorry I'm just drawing a blank. We've had titaniums for two years and alternators for two years.
    Universe Nemesis Prime was a thing of great beauty.

    I doubt its going to be sunstorm or razorclaw. Those do seem more like store exclusives for the brightness of them.

    Its going to be dark and/or hot red.

    yeah, i'd rather not see Ti's either, was just musing off what you said.

    and bring on Sunstorm (i'd really love a translucent one)

    with the way Classics 2.0 was going, i was really expecting to see an Ultra Motor Master ~ MM has such a unique design, i was really lookin' forward to seeing them pull off the "cab-as-feet/trailer-as-body" transformation.

    i'd be pretty surprised if we don't get a Sideswipe-mold Breakdown in the next 2-ish years (i'd think they do Dead End from Bluestreak)

    Universe G1 Inferno or Grapple

    EDIT: Grapple should be a wide release. Maybe Hotspot then?

    I doubt that the TF exclusive would be a deluxe sized figure so unless it's Animated, I doubt we'll get a seeker.

    Maybe Universe Inferno as Hot Spot or Grapple.

    i'd be down with Hot Spot ~ be fun if they took Cyclonus' minicon (assuming they aren't shared parts) and made Artfire ~ that'd be an obscure homage!

    Dude... he asked for an SDCC exclusive... not a Botcon exclusive. We'd never get all that at SDCC... especially not retools.

    Well, just because we've never recieved a deluxe exclusive from SDCC before doesn't mean this might not be the first. Though I'd definently be down with Hot Spot as an SDCC exclusive... Grapple, IMPO, should be a mass release when Universe comes back after RotF or a store exclusive while RotF is going on... you can't tell me that they didn't already have Grapple planned (and thus his new parts planned as well in the original mold).
