    No. Why? Surely the member with a toy who had a flying mode should get the Voyager with a flying mode.

    And I suggested Scattershot since his front-end cannon could be Cicadacon's stinger or whatever it is.

    Sea Clamp doesn't have an obvious mold he could use. Certainly not a jet though. Maybe Offroad.

    It's not a stinger it's just a horn for Trypredcus. I suggest Cyclouns because of the crowned gestalt head.

    I was talking about what it is in his insect mode. Real Cicadas have it too. EDIT: Its between its front legs.

    Anyone else see in issue #65 of the TFCC magazine they had Checkpoint and 2 Autotroopers appear, and they were all the Combiner Wars First Aid mold? Possibly souvenir 3 pack here. Checkpoint had the Prowl head, while the head on the Autotroopers looks like Generations Hoist?

    Autotroopers could be used to make Magnaboss from the CW Prowl, Sliverbolt and Ironhide we already have fill in the missing limbs with generibots.

    They also have a combiner Wars X-Brawn in the comic, who is the Rook mold, in RiD X-brawn colors with a new head.

    I don't think Predacus is going to have a default head. More likely one of the limbs will have a default head. At least it would be less noticable in a display.

    Most people will display combiners in gestalt mode, so a new head there would be a big selling point.

    Nah. Checkpoint and the Autotroopers fits with the troop builder three pack. Then they can have X-Brawn and a CW voyager for the big two pack. I would guess either Hotspot or Motor Master.

    Apparently every figure in the boxed set is going to have a new head.

    That's what I recall too. So that means A) no new gestalt head or 2. Cicadacon or Seaclamp are stuck with an old head.

    From the Botcon site:

    "The BotCon 2016 set will feature FIVE all-new head sculpts utilizing the amazing TRANSFORMERS COMBINER WARS action figures."

    And needless to say the last two members of the Tripredacus Council are going to need new heads so unless they surprise us with a new combiner head we'll be getting a default.

    I say give him a Predaking head and troll the fuck outta everyone.

    But yeah, TFCC's combiner will have a new head...so that's probably where the budget for that went.

    Predaking's head has a lot in common with Superion's...

    Another possibility is they use skylynx, who only has one head, as the body.

    Except that makes absolutely no sense. We're getting the tripredacus council. There's literally no way you can use Sky Lynx for that.

    Sure you can it would be really odd but it could be done. I think it's more likely that we'll see one member of the Tripredacus council with a stock head so the gestalt can have a new head.

    The huge flaw when it comes to repainting Sky Lynx is that he has a unique robot mode. There are no other characters with a robot mode like his.
