It would be awesome if he had a retooled/new weapon...his midget missile launcher!
This just makes me sad that I can't go to Botcon-I love Energon Starscream's mold. Oh well...
What is this concept work lineart style he's talking about? Looks just like regular comic pencils to me
Interesting choice, I wonder how it'll look on Screamer.
I am thrilled to see Wildman doing Transformers again in any capacity. I have the 1st Energon Screamer released and really dig that mold. I was hoping for Animated exclusives so I could pass all together but seeing this looks like I'll be buying the non attendee package for sure.
Well played FP.
So how do we know this is the Botcon exclusive?
Read his blog...
Skyquake isn't named in the brochure as part of the boxset. He might be part of one of the attendee sets for purchase, or the attendee freebie.
The blog doesn't name Botcon, but there aren't exactly a lot of TF cons out there that have exclusives. And it's not exactly going out on a limb to assume that Thunderclash and Skyquake, opposing rivals in the same subline, pop up in the same week as two parts of a themed set.
AHH MAN! I was really hoping to not care about this years set....but this is one of my favorite molds EVER!
I like animated and all, but i'm glad to find out that they won't be used for this years set.
Now i'm really wondering what the heck they'll use for Kup
Still waiting for my botcon Exluscive "Legends of Actionmaster Thundercraker" Box set.
easy pass for me....energon starscream not that exciting...
Skyquake is the next best thing.
Can't wait for when the toy is revealed, and the inevitable arguments between "OMG the colors are HORRIBLE" and "OMG It's exactly like the original! (happy dance)", both saying the same thing to say different things.
That mold is way underused. Glad the set isn't animated, and pissed at the same time cuz I may have to get it. now I'm intrigued for the rest of the set!
Agreed, the mold is underused and I could see it used twice this year. The second character could be Thundercracker in G1 colors, with two articulated middle fingers.
Interested but I'd really like to see it in color. I hope not all of G1 Skyquake's colors are used.
I've heard of at least one other con that has an exclusive this year.
They've said that on their forums, but no official announcement has been made so I'll leave it at that.
Energon Starscream??? You gotta be kidding me!
Another F-22 right in between the 2 movies. Okay, I think that's enough of the F-22 now. Feel free to move on to some other jets (I personally want a new F-16 Transformer)
Toy discussion for a side just a moment, I have to say that I actually like this piece of artwork from Mr. Wildman for a change. I'm very sorry, but I've just never been a huge fan of his artwork on Transformers. I've seen other comic book art he's illustrated, and I've enjoyed it just fine. I've just always preferred different styles of artwork for Transformers. IMO, his work always came across to me as humans with robot armor on.
I'll be very interested to see this piece inked.
That being said, I'm also interested to see what this toy (and the others of course!) will end up like, despite not being able to get the set most likely.
