    Galvatron has Cybertron Evac's head in the comics and the head fits Galvatron already, so I don't see them resculpting it (SG Blurr not withstanding).

    Especially when 3 new heads are in the box set, if the rumors are true then there is likely 1 more new head and I'm thinking it'll go to Autotroopers as making them is a no-brainer.

    Last year's set was supposed to be built around Actiomaster Thundercracker (and G2 Ramjet) but Hasbro was using the mold and did not allow Botcon to use it. G2 Ramjet became the club exclusive but AMTC was axed. Since that news claim out there have been people clamoring for AM Thundercracker as the pinnacle for the train wreck that was G2. :lol

    For reference, here was the original rumor list, as posted by user Mach.

    I think the list is going to be accurate, with a few substitutions, like Sideswipe from Breakdown, rather then Dead End.

    Personally, I'd rather see third party transforming Action Master armor made, than the Menasor combiner pieces. You could do the whole Seeker rainbow in their badass transforming mech overalls.

    I never thought of that. If we do indeed get an AMTC, then some third party should make armor for him! That'd be rad!

    Then again, I've been wanting Action Master partners for all my AM Classics.

    All this talk of a possible AM Thundercracker has me stoked for the little guy.

    If he's not there, I will be most displeased. I want to come home after the con with my retina's burned out after witnessing the utter majesty that is AM Thundercracker!...:p

    I really hope that the AMTC would be the classics mold and not a animated mold. Never really like that mold in the first place and giving me that as a replacement would be quite disappointing.

    It'll be the Classics mold. They already had plans for that.

    It'll be Animated. They already did Universe G2 Sideswipe for the custom class.

    I think thats why he wants the classic one.

    But Animated Breakdown to Sideswipe makes far more sense given this years figures so i don't hold out much hope.

    My own preference would be that the "revisiting previous series/convention sets" stuff would be done as club exclusives as opposed to Botcon exclusives, but given the apparent production limitations (since it seems like most if not all exclusives for both Con and club in a given year are manufactured at around the same time.) and market forces, I can see why they might not.

    Still waitin' on that Animated Glyph, TFCC! ;)
