    I'm still hoping they'll use some of the Beast Hunters dragon molds. I don't think there'll be more Combiner Wars in the souvenirs (though I do like somebody's idea of the troop-builder being four limbs). They haven't touched the dragons yet, and they're, y'know, beasts. For the Beast Wars-themed set. :dunce 

    Ehhh, yeah, but it's the first time in G1 fiction that Ravage has had a car mode. I look forward to the tap-dancing FunPub is going to have to do to explain that in the context of the story.

    I actually had some concept ideas for a BotCon set where they made it a Classics versions of the Alternators.

    A mechanical cat head Ravage would have been perfect.

    Oh man....XD

    Never mind the continuity headache that comes from G1 Ravage, who was rebuilt into BW Ravage, being killed in the Beast Wars which took place in Earth's past, yet his original body was dormant in the Ark.

    They were so worried about Prime being shot warping the timeline, but no one cared that Ravage was killed?

    here's a good way to think about it.
    1.ravage is a cassette then
    2.a cassette is blocky
    3.breakdown's mold is blocky
    4.get rid of the middle men
    5.ravage is a cassette now

    It's not like they killed the Ravage of the past, that Ravage is still in the chest of Soundwave. The Ravage that died in the Beast Wars was from the same time as the Maximals and Predacons. There's no plothole, you're just very confused.

    Agreed, and after Bruticus I'm done with CW deluxes. Still grabbing Skylynx but no desire to combine him.

    Not the best Botcon exclusive but I really like it, especially since BW Metals Ravage is one of my favorite toys and the character is cool.
    I'm definitely thrilled for a BW-themed set since BW was my main TF line as a kid and we don't get enough BW homages.

    This is an interesting homage-esque thing.

    I'll end up buying the Dead End redo (whoever that is) at stupid aftermarket prices but even making this a Black faux-Lambo can't make me buy or even vaguely want this awful, awful mould again.

    Because the club is using a combiner wars mold from the first figure doesn't mean they will use the cw molds for the entire box set and do a combiner does it? The second reveal is going to be more interesting.

    Except BW Ravage wasn't blocky at all in robot mode.

    They already confirmed 2016's Botcon set would be a combiner after announcing Thunder Mayhem.

    I don't hate this.

    More interested to see what the rest of the set will be, maybe the tripredicus council? I think we will see trantulas in there somewhere given he was also an agent of the council. I could see Cryotech in the set as well though.

    Either way seems fun.
