The official Transformers Facebook page has posted up a montage of character art from the upcoming Botcon 2013 Machine Wars Termination set. The artwork does a good job of drawing together the five characters in the set and drawing them with a unified, Marvel comics style artwork. Don't be too fooled by the blade on Megaplex's arm, though - we've been told that Megaplex will come with the Powerizer MechTech weapon and not this extra blade, which was added by artist Josh Burcham based on an addition he'd made to Machine Wars Megatron for an art piece back in 2011.

Open this link to view the original image on the Transformers Facebook page - it might well be a sneak peak at the bio-card artwork for this year's Botcon set.

Nah, it's just Josh taking a craptastic weapon and making it awesome.

I think.

I remember Josh drawing Machine Wars Megatron with the same sword-arm back when he was doing the Machine Wars fanproject:
MACHINE-WARS on deviantART

Ah! A nod to his previous work then.

Still its some nice art of the Botcon set. Almost sells me on Obsidian and Megaplex.

As usual, Josh's art rules.

Also, Botcon's Twitter mentioned that Megaplex will have the Powerizer weapon.

Gonna pass on the set but I'd love to have a print of the final piece. Signed by Josh, of course.

Man, I've always loved Josh's style

Good show Josh. Good show.
Boy Blunder
I dig it! The personalities really shine in this art.

Especially fond of Hoist. I may like the figure more just based on how he is in the story, if this art is any indication.
Hothouse Prime
If only the figures were as cool as the artwork...

This is the first year I am NOT jealous that I can't go to Botcon. This set does nothing for me. Outside of Megaplex kinda sorta.

Doesn't hurt that they actually look cohesive when drawn with the same aesthetics.

Do we know what the customizer class figures will be since there will be four of them? These are good, not great, mind you, since to me they don't evoke the Machine Wars vibe in the bricktacular, non firing missiled, insanely over the top way that the originals did, but I am at least curious to see if they're holding back some of the really interesting molds for the class.

On a side note, I do love that artwork.
RedAlert Rescue
Bit 80's looking.

The figures in general don't interest me so far, I only like the looks of Strika and Hoist so far, but not enough to spend a load on at the mo.

The artwork's nice though, so I guess I can enjoy the usual brain-numbing comic!!

There is not going to be four of them. Just one - same as before.

There are going to be four classes if that is what you mean. But each class has the same figure.

If Strika and Skywarp looked nearly this good in their toy forms... I'd want them.

That said... Megaplex still sporting Dreadwing's head in the art... blech... you'd think they'd have at least given Josh the option to give him a more appropriate noggin'. (Clone of Megatron should sport Megatron's face after all!)

In conjunction with character art, BotCon has revealed this year's apparel as well:

It'd be my guess:

Hoist ain't got time for those cons!

Does anybody have a link to this Botcon tweet stating that Megaplex would come with the gun? I can't find it, and I'm wondering if it never existed or was deleted.
