    3 possible reasons I can think of:
    -1. Incorrect sense of entitlement
    -2. Trolling
    -3. Wants the figures but can't afford them, so is convincing himself

    Rodimus as Wildrider. Kind of an homage to Gentei Wildrider. :)

    I wonder what voyager bulkhead would look like in MM's colors. that could actually be very cool. I'd prefer that over wreck-gar. I know that UM would probably be to big for the set, and that would make sense about leader bulkhead as well I guess. But wiht bulkhead and some creative paint schemes (which Funpub had pulled of very wel in the past IMO) you could make it look like the back end was his trailer. Any digi artists want to tackle that?:thumb 
    I'm very happy that we are getting animated toys for botcon, especially since this could be my last Botcon for awhile.

    One thing I feel like I need to remind people, is that this is Botcon which includes some exclusive toys (if you even want them). Not Exclusive toys that "oh hey, comes with a ticket to some convention". If you dont' want them/think they are overpriced, then don't buy them. You can still go to the convention without them.
    Sorry, I just get a little tired of this entitlement some people feel. Were talking about toys here, and people react like someone kicked a puppy or something. I'm all for being passionate about what you like/love, but lets keep it a little more real.

    Randy!

    I'd rather see Rodimus as Breakdown and Lockdown as Wildrider but that's me.

    Not just you, though. That'd be my preference, too. Don't want my upcoming Black Rodimus to feel self-conscious.

    Am I the only one thinking this seems like an ideal chance to use the blackout, HD BB & WB Prime molds?

    Not as any of the stunticons, obviously, but maybe as part of the attendee extras.

    I know if *I* was making botcon exclusives out of animated molds, that'd be the first thing I'd think of.

    For some reason, the new head reminds me of something out of a Hanna Barbera Cartoon.

    why not use the voyager optimus mold in black like that exclusive did last year and make a new MM head for it?

    [​IMG]


    It was be sized a little larger than the stunticon cars and would fit the price range for the box set...

    I bet the other unscene animated molds will be used as the add on sets...blackout and whatever the other un-sold hasbro side were....

    dunno...did not follow animated....might pick the box set up though....i have the "ironhide" shiny chromed japanese version of bulkhead...could not resist that color for some reason...and it would be nice to have some foes/allies to put him with,

    I'd be happy if one of the extra figures is Wasp... Of course then I'd still have to figure out a way to get him.

    Does anybody know if we'll see all the figures in the box set before we have to get our orders in?

    someone suggested a chromed out Ironhide as either one of the souvenir figures or the freebee, how cool would that be?

    Id prefer a metallic paint to chrome, but he was on my "wishlist" for TFA figures, so that would be sweet.
