    I was thinking about this, and I would love (ie be broke) a Prime themed Botcon. With Slipstream coming next year, the club could make all kinds of off screen characters...

    Deluxe Wasp from Bumblebee (doesn't matter which)
    Deluxe Flamewar from Arcee (doesn't matter which)
    Deluxe Tracks from Wheeljack
    Deluxe Slicer from Wheeljack
    Deluxe Cannonball from Ratchet
    Voyager Gutcruncher from Breakdown
    Deluxe Big Daddy from Cliffjumper (doesn't matter which)
    Deluxe Thundercracker from Starscream
    Voyager Depthcharge from Dreadwing
    Deluxe Krok from Rumble

    Blah blah blah.. What else would you guys like to see?

    Of course. But it would probably happen at least three years after the show ended.

    Oh slag NO!!!

    I rather see Botcon focus on older lines, say like G1 or G2 updates. I rather have the above under the main TFP line in the stores, because I want some non show characters.

    I wouldn't say make it necessarily Prime-themed, but maybe they could just use some of the better molds. Though I'm not if they can use the molds yet... Like, if they have to wait a certain amount of time before being able to use a mold.

    Technically there is a Prime Slicer coming soon thanks to that BBTS-exclusive Dark Energon line. I forget whether they have decepticon logos or not tho... like the Takara exclusive Terrocon Bee.

    no...hell NO>

    1. show is brand new.
    2. there are not enough characters as it is.
    3. FP does not need to make up "random characters" and since there are not enough characters present RIGHT NOW...a botcon themed set would suck...see animated stunticons...the characters were great...but the lack of useable molds SUCKED...the characters were shoehorned into crap molds...*dragstrip* is a fine example of that

    Hmmm... a Botcon set with the molds that I didn't like... not for me.
    But, many people likes Transformers Prime so it will be good to have a Botcon set with them. Just wait the cartoon get off the air first. Probably Hasbro/Takara still will do a lot of repaints :)

    Whaaat? Dragstrip was great. That they weren't new molds works perfectly in Animated, because canonically, their bodies are mass produced and no one but the Magnus is truly unique. They had to take autobot forms for their mission anyways.

    I like what they did with the Animated Boxset by having the core figures as members of a "combiner" team. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Prime Stunticons. I know I'm in the minority though.

    I think the 2011 set was the best so far, and I don't even collect Animated.

    They had a true theme, rather than a mix of things from various lines.

    Also if they did a bunch of characters Hasbro had NO INTENTION of doing, I don't see the harm for even 2014.

    As for the Dark Energon guys, I know *I* am repurposing them into Slicer, Wasp, and Goldbug (already have AM Skywarp) but I'd much rather have true, opaque versions.

    As for Prime Stunticons, that's already kinda ruined by having a Breakdown and Dead End already...

    Well...I guess you could change the name Breakdown to Break Down and Dead End to Deadend.

    Aww, who am I kidding, you're right. Still, I'd love to see the Stunticons. Knockout as Deadend, Vehicon as Drag Strip, Bumblebee as Wild Rider, Wheeljack as Break Down, and Breakdown as Motormaster.

    If I were to make a set, it would follow a story about Decepticon experiments back on cybertron and a group of Autobots trying to stop it.

    Main set:

    Flatline- Rachet redeco with new head and one new weapon (cleaver)

    X-Brawn- Ironhide redeco, new head

    Sideburn- Wheeljack redeco, new head

    Mach-Alert- Arms Micron Knockout redeco (so his chest isn't flat), new head and weapon (gun)

    Toxitron- Mainline voyager Optimus Prime redeco with green translucent parts


    Attendee Exclusives:

    Set 1: Flatline's assistants (x2)- Vehicon redeco, in scrubs green and black

    Set 2: Armorhide- Ironhide redeco in the colours of RID Ironhide

    W.A.R.S- Wheeljack redeco, new head

    I'd love to see a Prime themed Botcon and I would buy it's exclusisve toys in an instant. However it may not be for a few years at least. Maybe around 2015 or 2016 at the least.

    Main set:

    Tailgate-RID Cliffjumper redeco with new head and weapon.

    Rattrap-RID Rumble with new head and weapons.

    Que-RID Knockout with new head

    Minerva- RID Arcee with new head and weapon

    Skyhammer- RID Dreadwing with new head and weapon




    Attendee Exclusives:

    Sentinel Prime-Redeco of Voyager Ultra Magnus with new weapon.

    Rodimus Prime-RID vehicon with new head and weapon with re-molded hands

    Flatline- RID Wheeljack with new head and weapons.

    Thunderwing- RID Voyager Starscream with new head and weapons.

    I don't see how fudging the spelling helps because you're still saying saying the same thing, unless there's a pronounced gap whenever anyone says theirs names, and that would just be silly.

    Anyways, here's mine:

    Box Set:
    Trailbreaker from Kup
    Rosanna from Rumble
    Motormaster from Breakdown (new head)
    Hellbat from Soundwave
    Victory Leo from Thundertron
    Lockdown from FE Cliffjumper (new head)

    Two-pack #1:
    Rhinox from Ultra Magnus (new head)
    Needlenose from FE Starscream

    Two-pack #2:
    Toxitron from FE Voyager Optimus Prime
    Ironfist from Kup (new head)

    Troop Builder three-pack:
    Autotroopers from Vehicon (new head)

    Attendee Figure:
    Nightbeat from Vehicon (new head)

    This sounds like a great idea!

    One thing I'd add though, I'd hire lots if models to cosplay Arcee and Flamewar, and then they can have Nerf gun battles throughout the convention then make up at the end with hugs and stuff.

    What?
