    The Beast Wars (Cheetor redeco) had a nice head on it. (with an opening mouth too) something similar shrunk down would be nice.

    Yeah... How about no.

    As for the Predicus heads, those are currently being worked on, the normal releases will come with the normal heads and you can get the Quin-Predicus heads from us for hopefully under $10.

    Regular WJ Computron looks pretty cool, but this is plain awesome. Please make a Dawn of Futures past set.

    We are considering that as a possible line direction.

    Looks interesting. I already own the original BotCon set, but I can't wait to see the final product of this version. The only thing I would change so far is Ravage's color. Make him a much darker grey or black.

    I do hope we get more 3rd party stuff like this in the future. Take old BotCon ideas, ones we did or didn't actually get, and redo them with 3rd party figures. I mean can you imagine if a certain other company who cannot be named here did a Flamewar repaint of their upcoming figure?! The name would be so appropriate too! :p

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    The whole Idea of First Party Toys is maximum community involvement. This project is a somewhat original piece that we are trying to build a group together with.
    One of our ideas is to make sold separately heads for Katoa and Nephorosis to make them Sound Wave and Laserwave respectively because that's who they are in the lore.

    Any other pitches like that, I would love to hear them!!!

    Am I understanding it correctly as that you’ve got access to all WJ molds? In that case the possibilities are near endless. Alcee or Brainstorm molds into various fembots, SG movieverse, reimaginings of Animated season 4 (Marauder Megatron, I don’t care how but make it happen!), Beast Machines, Prime, and so on.

    As for the council, I second that Ravage should be darker. Claws/drones like the Timelines would be cool for Tarantulas, even more so if he could store them on his altmode. Looks like there’s peg holes on its sides.

    I'd buy them. As long as you put a little creativity into the mix and keep them at a decent price point (i.e. not five bazillion dollars a figure) you have my attention. Will for sure be buying this set. It's a fair bit better than that craptastic Botcon thing I sold eons ago.

    A "pre-BW" Rampage would definitely be a fun buy.

    Listen, we're not in it for money, we are the guys who gave away our Chief Fire for $0.01. Obviously, this won't be like that was a stunt, this we plan to sell at cost, I'd say the set will be around the WJ version.

    Sorry. Bad joke on my part. It was more of a rub on the Botcon Tripredacus which had a ridiculous price tag despite being kind of a lackluster toy. The thing you've got for sale here is clearly a superior looking figure.

    You definitely have my money when it goes up for sale/pre-order/whatever. Also if you fix the Alcee mold and do something fun with it you totally have my money.

    Edit: A Nightracer redco would be totally sweet:

    Hauling these out again 3 years later, because Botcon really didn't listen to suggestions of cohesiveness between the spare limbs and a nod to the actual toy.

    UPDATE:
    Panthera has had his color change to a darker theme as seems to be the general feedback.

    I know this is ridiculously optimistic for what is currently concept art, but do you have a potential timeline on when these might be available for purchase? I've cut back on Transformer purchasing, but I know that I could sway a family member to get this as a Christmas present.
