    Botcon exclusives get less and less attractive as the years go by... hopefully FunPub will go bankrupt and some better company will take its place in producing exclusives.

    Whoever does it can only use the molds Hasbro and Takra use. Oilmaster's pretender shell being an exception.

    "Predacus Hexatron". MMC be damned.
    Or " King Predacus" and this forum goes into full panic meltdown.

    I'm mostly kidding: "King Predacus" wouldn't be the worst name. And there's always the off chance the combined mode is like TFCC 4.0 and is given a new name/persona like with Thunder Mayhem/Wing so it represents an additional character.

    Oh man, unless their name blows me away... I think I'm fan naming combined mode King Predacus.

    I'm trying to figure out why suddenly everybody is so shocked Botcon is repaints with new heads as if it's never happened before.

    Great, now I want a G2 Sideswipe recolor. That mold looks amazing in black.

    Why?

    :puke2: 

    Wow. This was unexpected. I just watched a video about the BotCon 2016 Ravage last night. I believe it was revealed at Roll Out Roll Call (I think that's the name.).

    I could see Silverbolt, Ironhide, and Prowl repainted as Magnaboss Silverbolt, Ironhide, and Prowl. Maybe with a new combiner head.

    That would give people with TFCC 4.0 a torso and two arms to go with Impactor and the mystery figure. Meanwhile retail collectors would have a place to put their spare Bravo and Off-road if they bought Slinger and Brake-Neck.

    I bet:
    Dx Groove: Sideways.(unicorn)
    Rook: Shockwave (the arm cannon)
    First Aid: Evil Rhinox

    the body could be:
    Motormaster/Prime: (Nemesis Prime)
    Cyclonus: Red bat

    Last year had 15 toys for BotCon, so that's enough for three combiners next year... or at the very least two, since both Hasbro and FunPub are over-milking the Combiners at the moment.

    So if we have a homage of (Tri)predacus as one combiner, who could be the other?
    Maybe Magnaboss... since we already have Combiner toys of those three characters (Prowl, Ironhide, Silverbolt). Give them "Beast Wars" colors and details, and two other deluxes to make up the team.
    Hound will be out by then, and that has a "beasty" sounding name.... so that could be number four. It just needs a fifth Gen1 bot for the new Magnaboss council.

    Gaaahh why did it have to be Beast Wars?? I may have no choice but to buy it now.

    All told, I'd gladly drop $500 or whatever it will cost this year on the above digibashed set thoug, wow.

    Hound in Beast Wars K9 colors would be a fun homage.

    Sunstreaker
    Jumpstream
    Wheeljack
    Ravage

    It's pretty rare that FunPub does all 15 figures completely on-theme. I think using the attendee sets for a second or even third complete combiner would be a bad choice by them. That's not to say they might not augment the initial set with 1-2 alternate limbs, but there are plenty of molds I would imagine FunPub still has access to for the other sets (another Diaclone two-pack, Paradron medics from Arcee, Blitzwing -> Flywheels, etc)

    Although . . . I could see some kind of combiner limb troop builder. I'm not a BW guy, but think about last year's Waspinator four pack - that'd be an interesting way to fill out limbs very quickly. Is there a character or characters that share a mold that would make sense for a limb troop-builder set?

    Seekers? With Cyclonus as Starscream for the attendee bonus?

    is it bad that if it is a skylynx/magmatron torso ,i'd want it to be mostly red and orange with a predaking-esque head?

    I like the coloring of the figure, I think the mold looks pretty good in black and gray and the head sculpt by itself looks nice, but when you put them together.....it just looks like something you would see in a dollar store, where they just stick a random head off a hellokitty toy on a transformer. I am hoping Ravage is the exception and they come up with some less organic looking heads for the other members.
