    We assume they'll be available next year... don't know that for certain...

    There are still some nice Cybertron/Energon molds available, including some that haven't been repainted at all. Also consider if only Universe 2.0 molds are used for Botcon 2010, that will likely again mean very slim pickings of molds for Botcon 2011 (unless Animated molds are available and get used for one of those years). Point is... I don't think completely eliminating Cybertron and Energon molds as a 100% rule is a good idea.

    I've said it a million times before FP needs to do a sort of "Future Primitive" set of classics/AEC done in Diaclone decoes.

    Since remolding would be minimal they could do something fun lice police car Sunstreaker.

    It seems to me this idea is a no-brainer and I think it would be the most popular set since Games of Deception.

    Box Set:
    Blue Prime
    Police Car Sunstreaker
    Diaclone colored Blue Streak
    Red Mirage
    Blue (or other Euro/SA color) Bumblebee
    Realistic or Black/Brown Colored Megatron

    Dealer exclusive:
    Red Sunstreaker (kind of a cop out)

    I hope its a combo of Universe and AEC molds. There is still a lot of great molds not used. Hopefully its mostly Universe figures though. I could make a list but It'd be long

    I don't know realistically what they'd be able to do, but from the list I'd like to see any of the following:

    Legends Brawn -------> Outback
    Legends Bumblebee ---------> Hubcap

    Deluxe Cheetor ---> Tigatron
    Deluxe Cyclonus ---> Maybe one of the Targetmaster Decepticon jets?
    Deluxe Hound ----> Swindle
    Deluxe Sunstreaker ----> Punch/Counterpunch remold

    Voyager Inferno -----> Grapple

    I'm not getting my hopes up since it seems that the only thing all of those shitty AEC molds are good for is to be repainted a thousand times each as filler characters. Hasbro are just a guilty of it as Fun Pub are.

    I can't really think of any Classics/Universe molds that could get away with successfully being repainted and/or remolded with new heads except maybe Ironhide/Ratchet getting turned into Trailbreaker, Inferno getting turned into Grapple, and maybe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker getting turned into updated versions of Runamuck & Runabout. I guess a few of these things could get turned into Stunticons now that there's more molds to choose from and Dragstrip has already happened. I'm not a fan of the Stunticons, but that would make a cool boxset. i'd still ike to see Classics Rodimus (minus the wing) get repainted into another Autobot since I love that mold so much. I always thought it could made a great Red Alert and/or Sideswipe... before the SS/SS dual mold was released.

    All I know is that if they do Diaclone repaints or Animated it will be another "skip" year for me.

    I do like Tenebrouser's ideas, though.

    The set needs to be based on Animated molds.

    Well it was like that this year because they had used most of the Classics molds already and were not allowed to touch the movie molds because of licensing issues. So they had to resort to Cybertron and Energon molds.

    Next year they should be able to use the likes of Prowl, Sunstreaker, Tankor etc...

    Too soon to call. If they can use Animated, maybe that. If not, I'd hazard another G1 (or similarly) based set with Universe 2.0 and AEC molds.

    Well, Universe 2.0 should be available next year for Botcon 2010.

    I'd like to see a set based on the e-Hobby exclusives.

    Box Set:
    1) Clamp Down (Sideswipe w/light bar retool)
    2) Crosscut (Ironhide w/new head)
    3) Deep cover (Sideswipe)
    4) Fairlady (Silverstreak w/Bluestreak colors & new femme head)
    5) Elita-One (Thunderblast w/new head)
    6) Detritus (Hound)
    7) Devcon (Cyclonus)

    Attendee Freebie:
    1) Deep Cover (Sideswipe)

    Show Exclusives:
    1) Dead End (Silverstreak) & Tigertrack (Sideswipe)
    2) Breakdown (Sunstreaker) & Clench (Onslaught w/new head)

    Added in the two Stunticons, Elita & Clench to fill out the set more and pulled Fairlady out of my butt as I would love to get a 'Blue Bluestreak', but really wouldn't want it to be the same character... and as the mold seems somewhat androgynous... I figured a femme character would work as long as you give the mold a new head. I realize that the box set has more then the usual number of figures, but seeing as the last two sets have used either two Voyagers or a Voyager & an Ultra... if they don't do any larger figures I don't think seven deluxes would be out of the question.

    Story could be something like, Elita-One is leading a team that is tracking Clench (whom meets up with Breakdown and Dead End to be brought to Megatron). Eventually it'll turn out that Detritus was working for Megatron the whole time or something, but Devcon would have been tagging along unknown to the others and save their behinds. Would need a lot more fleshing out, but I think that would be cool.

    This needs to happen. Essentially, I wouldn't really care what else was in the set if they did that.

    If they don't do that, though, I think I'd prefer an Animated set: Voyager Ramjet, Voyager Thundercracker, Voyager Nightscream (my name for the female) (new head), Deluxe or Activators Wasp (new head), Deluxe Cybertronian Ironhide (new head -- may already be part of the mold, though), and some new characters. Maybe they could partner with Unicron.com again, and they could make a Sari.

    A REAL ELITE GUARD!

    Using actual animated molds and characters from the Animated show. Do you realize how easy it would have been, example:

    Box set:
    Cliffjumper (Animated Bumblebee)
    Ironhide (Animated Ratchet)
    Bluestreak/Smokescreen (Animated Prowl)
    Kup (Animated Optimus Prime)
    and traitor Wasp (Animated Bumblebee)

    Extra exclusives:
    Ricochet (Animated Jazz)
    Thundercracker, Ramjet, Fem-scream (Animated Starscream clones)

    What should have been, would have been awesome!

    I'd like to say:

    Cybertron Hot Shot as Chromedome
    Energon Bulkhead as Highbrow
    Energon Scorponok as G1 Scorponok
    Cybertron Primal as Apeface
    Cybertron BW Megatron as Snapdragon

    Inferno for Grapple
    Hound for Swindle
    Starscream for Sunstorm

    Thats all I can think of for the Universe 2.0 line. I pretty sure they'll use molds from other lines.

    I'd be hoping for a set of "gap filler" Animated repaints & remolds, myself, though I'd make no bets on the likelyhood of that.
