News post: Botcon 2014 Theme Revealed - Pirates! - Transformers News - TFW2005
Dang. That might make me want to give FunPub some money.
so now they release thundertron's crew? coolish... wish this was retail or something but i guess it's obscure enough to work for Botcon...
i'm predicting cannonball from beast hunters bulkhead... dunno what else?
If this means it's the Star Seekers, it could be interesting.
2014 might very well be the Year Of The Pirate!
We already have the 20th Anniversary season Power Rangers Super Megaforce which is adapted from the pirate-themed Gokaiger, and now this!
I don't know, maybe pirates are the hot thing this year...
Pirate theme and predominantly prime-based molds is good news ... for my wallet.
For I am a Pirate King! Hurrah for our Pirate King! And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King...
Sounding good so far! Maybe we'll get a new repaint of Thundertron with a classics style head remold.
I think this is a brilliant move. They've milked a lot of the other directions and ideas like Shattered Glass, etc. They needed a new direction... and something that would make a great new mini-toyline and mini-faction, so to speak.
If Serenity and Han Solo are any indicators, space pirates make for exciting misadventures, rough and tumble characters, and hopefully a treasure hunt FTW! Getting excited.
Welp, I guess this means Hasbro isn't interested in elaborating the Star Seekers...
Beast Hunters Ratchet as Cannonball. I'm calling it now.
Note to self - Talk to KFC about a "polly" recolor of Birdbomber, to Dr. Wu about add-on hooks and peg-legs, and to Reprolabels about pirate faction symbols.
BTW - What's the ETA on Sencho Barbossa?
So I guess the exclusive figure is going to be of Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise's Star Seeker Thundertron?
Cool! Maybe they'll take some tidbits and backstory from that failed Chinese game with star seekers to base the set around? Anything to give Thundertron some more cronies to kick around.
Not something I care about but it's an infinitely better idea than shoving more SG garbage down fan's throats.
Yes! Pirates are so the hot thing!! Maybe next year's theme can be about the Old West and they can have an Autobot do an offensive portrayal of an American Indian.
Obviously next year will be ninjas.
