We'll find out soon enough... If they're able to use the mold, it's a no-brainer for Cannonball.
Breakdown may have been made with US Safety laws in mind.
TakaraTomy tends to do that with their main release figures even if they don't see a release here (or at least right away).
It's stuff like their one off lines where they may not have designed the figures with that in mind (Alternity, GT, Device Label, Disney Label, Capbots, etc).
All it really takes is a sticker set to turn silas breakdown into cannonball, it might be a reason the club wont do it, that said I think the fan outcry if they don't use him as cannonball would be so loud I can here it echoing backwards in time from here.
Also, who's to say this Cannonball isn't a totally new character all on it's own (which that's what it's supposed to be, right?). I mean, we remember that a Cannonball that fits Cybertron Cannonball's appearance bit the space dust in Wingsverse (IIRC), why should the next Cannonball look exactly like him? Maybe they'll throw us for a loop with this character reveal? Although doubtful. I'm hoping they surprise us with some "left-field" deco.
Oh they totally could use any tooling as cannonball, he is pre set up for that very thing, but I am not talking about sense or logic or even character history, I am talking about fan rage.
You guys are going to be real bent out of shape when it turns out there isn't even a cannonball in the set.
Fun Pub already said there is.
The teaser image is even Cannonball's deco from the original toy.
Ah, if I'm not mistaken fan rage is = logic/sense in the TF fandom, though.... Right?
He's supposed to be the first figure reveal in the next magazine, IIRC.
When will the first figure be revealed? That might help with some of the borderline hostility coming from some people, though I'm also sure it'll make someone even more angry cuz it's not what they wanted. Can't please them all.
that would be pretty cool.
I hope so, because that mold is great and it'd be a great way for other fans to get their hands on it.
Come on Club Mag, show up at my door. I want to see the first reveal!!
I see it now. I hope they give you guys the figure you all are wanting. And not some crap mould.
Forget the figure reveal, I'm impatiently awaiting Rampage & Transmutate!
It would be good if they managed to use the Breakdown mold seeing as how we never got it over here.
Could have included a recolor of AM Starscream's Micron as a parrot or something.
Who's to say they wont? We got a lot of AM's with the subs this year maybe that'll carry over to botcon.
The theme is irrelevant this year. It has nothing to do with the character choices like in previous years. Cannonball, Ferak, Scorponok, Devcon... We're just getting a random bunch of toys unconnected to each other.
But I'm not complaining.
It's the new series pirates vs knights alpha trion is the only KO looking one
