    Yawn. This is not for me, at least not at botcon prices.

    A black redeco of the mold, I would buy, but I don't like that version of Ravage.

    How does Tripredacus fit into IDW lore, if at all? Maybe they originally were a combiner team with Ravage and another guy and then realized they couldn't trust that and split off as their own team.

    I do like your idea, though. A team of agents as opposed to the Council itself. Heck, if they wanted to...they could dig out some other molds and make the Council the attendee bonuses.

    Regardless, still really like the idea of Sky Lynx/Magmatron.

    I can see a Sky Lynx retool as someone...hell, maybe Silverbolt or Magnaboss' Prowl.

    At least Sky Lynx was meant to be a beast to begin with and so that would make for a neat retool, unlike this.

    Eh, it's probably the closest we're going to get to a toy version of Russian Ravage. I would have preferred a non transformable figure that's accurate to his new body, I mean obviously it's impossible to turn a slim ninja bot into a tape but still I would go the the slim ninja toy any day.

    I wouldn't count out a CW Liokaiser. There's still TFCC 5.0, Botcon 2016, Takara, and a potential Wave 7/8 for CW.

    But I would be shocked if we get through 2016 without at least hearing about who is doing CW Liokaiser and when.

    They could retool an MP cassette, but still wouldn't be accurate.

    and there's another option that'd be a good fit for the club.

    I kinda think the remolded body for Victorion would work pretty well, but they might not have access to that version of the mold.

    Yeah, I was thinking Scattorshot initially, just to vary up the molds. Definitely do NOT want it to be the Optimus mold... but Sky Lynx would work pretty well.

    Yep. Battle Ravage had a squarer head and a more rounded body (Corvette vs. lambo aside, the CW cars are VERY blocky) so the head worked a lot better.

    I really hate it when a toy meant to represent an animal character looks like they plopped an animal head on a body meant for a humanoid face.

    This is that.

    I know they'll probably still with US Beast Wars characters, but man, I really want some weird Japanese BW figure to be made as part of this set...

    No, Snowcat was named that because his alt mode was a snowcat artic vehicle from GI Joe.
