    I wouldn't think so. If anything I would think that a Skylynx retooling into Magmatron would be the ideal candidate for the set. My line of thinking would be that the Combiner head would be reminiscent of the BW megatron.

    In the Beast era, Cheetor and Tigatron from one car and Wolfang and K-9 from the Swindle/ Hound mold.

    I don't think anyone should be allowed to be tired of a mold until they own it at least three times. Once or twice? No.

    Dont think anyone is shocked, its more what molds they are using. Hasbro has already used these molds like 10 times this year and for the Botcon ones to use them already is just meh. At this point I just dont get the appeal of the random overpriced repaints. They still have a couple cool ones here and there like the TF Prime Smokescreen turned into Barricade. Its also funny to me how many people will complain about the Hasbro figures being made simpler and cheaper and the prices keep going up, but then get all excited about the same figures being repainted into even more expensive figures. LOL

    Well I was hoping they'd do something for BW's 20th. I'm just hoping this is it because so far it's just not interesting me in the least bit.

    What, so you don't like G1 Ravage? 'Cause that's what this is.

    He probably means he doesn't like the way Ravage was redesigned in BW. In fact, I would've liked it if Ravage had stayed a cassette, too.

    Eh, if I was going to Botcon I might pick the set up. Though I said that about last years to...and really the only thing that I still want from that set is Battletrap.

    In terms of the souvenir figures that are separate from the boxset any ideas on who they might be?

    I really liked the BW ravage and getting an X-9 toy is sort of a holy grail... this is just not not my thing.

    Really I would have been more more into say a redesign of Thundertron but then that would mean the combiner gimmick would have to be binned.

    Dead End has been whored out more than most CW molds. Breakdown only had, what, Sunstreaker released? I know Wheeljack, but that's not out yet.

    Either *more* Tripredacus agents, Maximal counter parts... Or somebody thought maybe army-builder limbs (Seekers?)

    If the team is Tripredacus Counil based, I've already lovingly called the Gestalt "King Predacus" for that reason.

    I kinda want the X9 Ravage, but not sure if I want him for $50.

    (Hypocrisy alert, as I blew 40 bucks on Alternators Rodimus the other day)

    The idea of Ravage as a sports car would be cool if he'd retained the quadrupedal robot mode, but that'd require too much retooling of the Breakdown mold.

    Its not the first time Ravage has been a car with a humanoid robot mode. And since its homaging Beast Wars, it would have been very wrong for him to have have been a car with a four legged beast robot mode.

    The head sculpt on Botcon Ravage is atrocious. He looks less like a sinister predator and more like a cute widdle house cat.

    I'm kind of OK with that, and really this is an upgrade on what I have now...
