Hmmm...I'd have loved a recolor of this toy, but this watery brown was not what I'd expect.

Is it going to be in Cybertron line?
ILoveDinobot
I hope they aren't thikning of making that pre-earth Dinobot. The colors just look like Dinobots colors. But he would be a vehicle right? Thats the same person/email/site who had the pics of pre-BW Rattrap, that's where I got that crazy idea from. =-P

Hmm? That's my Photobucket account, if that's what you mean. I'm regularly mirroring pics from auction sites there. I don't see why this is supposed to "prove" a connection with Rattrap.
ProtoformX
i kinda like it...
no clue what this will be for
Ra88
Well, it shouldn't be Dinobot since they're only using Cybertron toys, but the colors have me worried (ESPECIALLY the blue face).
Insane Galvatron
I too first thought Botcon Dinobot. The colors are too close. I liked Ratrap and Primal, but would be sorely disapointed if that were Chopperface....
Galaxy Convoy
Maybe it's Air Razor?
Chaos Convoy
I'm PRAYING it's Airazor.

But yeah..the colors are VERY VERY Dinobot-ish.

I'll be kinda disappointed if he turns out to be this toy, especially when he's the only Predacon in the set.
rattrap007
I was about to say Airrazor myself..
highlander3000
I would be very disappointed if this were Dinobot but it does look like him.
Darkprime
I doubt it's dinobot. I would think it would work best as terrorsaur, but the colors are all wrong. Maybe it's just a repaint for the later part of cybertron.
ProtoformX
just thoguth of something..maybe this will be one of those "bonus" figures..like last years we got the clones, ratchet and that black arcee chick (dont remember the name)
Darkprime
Hmmm, could be. Maybe airrazor and terrorsaur could share the mold.
artiepants
huh, curious. i'll put my vote in for an @ the convention exclusive...
(i.e., in addition to the DOFP set)

No Nevermore I didn't mean the photobucket account I meant the EasyNet, the email address and the site given in the corner of the photos.
EDcomics
The first thing I thought was actually that the colors resemble Transmetal Megatron. Of course that's just me. I wouldn't think they'd use a beast mold for pre-Beast Wars BotCon exclusives. I guess we'll find out, though...

I always wanted that blue "Shadowhawk" repaint they had in Japan. Didn't that appear in the actual Energon cartoon? I seem to remember it. Oh well...
SKowl
I'm thinking Airrazor, but I thought they said Cybertron molds only?

Still, nice to see the Divebomb mold come back. By far one of the best basic/scout molds ever! Divebomb was the precursor to all the great scouts we have now, and is still one of my all-time favourite Transformers!
Liokaiser
This has to be Airazor. Hope it comes with a new head mode.

EasyNet had test shots and in-packaging samples for about every other toy in the past year. Don't see a connection to a particular toy here either.

for the main set that is true...but if this is infact a bonus con exclusive..then maybe it is airrazor
jimsloth
I kind of doubt this is going to be one of those pre-beast wars characters for one reason. It still transformes into a beast. The other two (primal and rattrap) both got cybertron vehical modes which makes sence, why would a character that was already sporting a beast mode get to earth and get a new beast mode. Plus, no golden disk/chip. Before it was released that it was indeed rattrap, we still got the speculation from the chip. I'm thinking this might be something completlely unrelated.
Kaijumaster
I just want a G1 divebomb repaint of Divebomb
Insane Galvatron
People keep saying Airrazor. She was not in the original crew. She was a protoform in stasis lock.

I hope the extra attendee figure is another Predacon ( preferably Megatron ) so that Dinotbot is not the only one.
Dreweido
Pete just said it isn't Dinobot over at Allspark... *whew*

Same reason a character sporting a vehical mode gets to earth and gets a new vehical mode
They needed organic beast forms cause of all the raw energon. So they would need a change in form. So that does make sence.
War Bearer
This is definately Dinobot not all Beast Wars TFs on Cybertron have to transform into Cybertronian vehicles. There could even be mechanical beast.

Thank Primus for that.

Also quoted cos some people seem to not have noticed this yet.

Well, I guess you'd be wrong then. Like Drew just said, Pete@Botcon said it ain't Dinobot.

...But given that he KNOWS that it isn't Dinobot, that means that what we've got here is a Botcon or Club Store exclusive. I'd wager on either Airazor or one of the Autobot elders mentioned in the story description.

... No, actually, the fact that he knows it's not Dinobot means he's SEEN Dinobot's convention toy, and knows this to not be it. Other than that, it proves very little else. The question to have asked would have been "Is this a Botcon/Fan Club toy?"
Beastbot X
Ah, didn't think of that. Nevermind.

Actually, Pete@Botcon is the guy in charge. Therefore, he makes the decisions as to what the toys will be. So it's more than just a matter of seeing them and knowing what they are...
Kupp
well I just hope I can snag him by some means, I will need that to chill with my terrorcon horde, regardless of who it is.
shockwave2005
I thought the Botcon Beast Wars exclusives were going to be remolded/repainted Cybertron figures....

It would be cool if this Divebomb repaint is supposed to be filler for the Cybertron line.

If not, and he is part of the Beast Wars set, he really should be Terrorsaur...and NOT have those colors in the pic.

EDIT: And he should have a remolded head.
Deadend
Considering it lacks two things for both the convention and cybertron line, I'd lean towards universe or some other offshoot type line.

As mentioned, no golden disc.
As not really mentioned yet, no Cybertron Cyberkey slot.
Plus the inclusion of the energon star and weapons. No remolded parts really as of yet. This figure is odd in where it could go. But it doesn't really fit with anything currently being released.
Steevy Maximus
I have doubts that it will be a con figure, for reasons already stated.

If this will be released, I think it is entirely possible that it is part of some exclusive.
Hasbro is bringing back Battlepacks for Star Wars for this christmas season for all retailers, perhaps they are examining the concept for Transformers? (a deluxe and a couple basics for $20 or so?)

Colors looks as though they are inteded to go with Command Ravage..

It could also be an abandoned toy like the Drench and Smokescreen homaged Armada figures
Foster
Interesting, but still just a repaint. Pass.
unafraid
Thought it could have been Dinobot too, but it's not a vehicle, so...

Whoa, hold on. I am not the guy in charge, that's Brian. But, I do a ton with the Convention Set in many aspects. That said, as mentioned earlier, this toy is NOT Dinobot. It is a cool looking toy though....
REDLINE
man, why couldn't they have painted him up orange like the predacon?? I'm really not digging the brown and blue feathers at all. which sucks cause I LOVE the mold.
Sonscreen
Hmm, I wonder if an Energon Sharkticon repaint is far behind. I was a fan of those two molds.
soundwaveCA
I figure I'll be the first to ask this but are we even sure this is going to be a Botcon exclusive? I dont recall anything being mentioned and I thought they were going for pre crash landing on Earth BW figs in which case this would make no sense, not to mention Airazor came along later. Not that I would mind this done as Airazor but I think were jumping the gun a bit on this speculation.

As for the toy itself it looks not bad, not great but not bad, as a Con exclusive I think it would be ok, other then that I would probably pass on this though.
unafraid
Given the colors, I think it's either Barfotron or Pukobot.
Galaxy Convoy
My guess is that's it's a Club Store exclusive. It doesn't fit in with anything else.
REDLINE
if that's true, then I'm glad he is ugly LOL
Hiro Prime
It could be another Universe release. The line isn't quite done yet as we've yet to see the Micromaster Areialbots.
airfox
Curious.... I wonder what it'll end up being.

Even if it was said that the convention set has only Cybertron molds, it doesn't mean that other convention exclusives will also be Cybertron molds. But I'd be surprised to see that many molds (5 from the set, the posibility of a Megatron and this Divebomb) used on this year's convention.

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

-airfox
Feralstorm
There's only a couple obvious options that I see right now:

1. A repaint for Cybertron "Jungle Planet", though the mold having no support for a key doesn't work too well for that.

2. A club exclusive, or a Botcon exclusive outside of the main set, though it doesn't seem to closely resemble any known BW characters. Perhaps a new character for the con story?
Triformis
bleh.
