    That is... very, very red. I wish the gray was swapped out fro purple. Or the red was a bit more brown. SOMETHING to tie it into the toy.

    But I like it.

    I like this toy for a pre-beast version of Ram Horn. Sure the colors are different, but thats okay. He can change his colors when he is reformatted into his beast mode. And the head is a lot better than the original toy head surprisingly enough.

    i really like the mold and hope it sees some sort of mass retail release whether it is indeed the now speculated nosecone or a totally new character.

    Damn, that does look pretty cool, still not picking up the box set, but he looks good! And bring on the Computron rumor mill!

    That is my only complaint as well. I'm hoping they are close to toy colors, as those would be a lot more dynamic together in a combiner team.

    The more I look at it, the more it has to be Nosecone. Because where else would Fun Pub get a CGI mockup of a backwards Brawl to add the drill too?

    Quake! I need a CW Quake! With targetmasters! Needlenose and Spinister would be lonely without him.

    Wow that thing looks terrible... So much for being envious of high priced exclusive bots I can't afford.

    These are more like crappy repaints nobody really wants.

    Nice remoulding right there, better than what I would expect from a Botcon figure.

    Still not interested in this whole set (since I don't want to promote the idea that Beast Wars fans are so desperate they will buy anything attached to the name despite of how out of place it is) but this could mean the arrival of the Technobots.

    I hope you're not trying to imply that not wanting to spend money on an ugly retool is being an entitled brat

    I don't even know how you get that from what I just said.

    Well, proof positive that at the very least Hasbro tossed around the idea of Technos beyond Scattershot. Following through is still TBC

    It'd be hilarious is this is the reason they're delaying the announcement.

    Awesome. I know it's unlikely but I'd love to see another Pretender this year in any form.

    I normally hate when people do this, but "gee golly, that there sure does look like a dang ol' Nosecone "pretool". 'Cause those exist, right?" 'S just too bad it's a con exclusive, or I'd gladly buy the Pred' before the Technothingbot.

    I think this looks pretty good and I like the color scheme even if its not toy accurate.

    I wish they'd make the colors match the toy a bit more. The red is too red.

    Now I really want CW Liokasier.

    Leozack - Silverbolt
    Hellbat - Skydive
    Gaihawk - Air Raid
    Drillhorn - Ramhorn
    Jargua - Swindle
    Killbison - Brawl
    Deathcobra - Alpha Bravo

    Sure, two will use the same basic mold, but still.... Maybe Rook instead of Brawl. Throw in some Arms Microns and voila!

    Would the Scattershot mold work better than Silverbolt or Cyclonus for Cicadacon if they are able to use it?
