    Oh lordy. I'm going to need a digibash of the toy-accurate combined mode, because individually they'll be easier to identify, but combined mode looks SOOOO good in the botcon colors...

    Iguanus. Crazybolt. Psycho Orb.

    Or, better yet, Double Punch!

    Iguanus-only the tm2 version and these are supposed to be pre beast wars

    crazy bolt, double punch and psycho orb-considering it’s a overall homage to tripredacus I was only thinking about USA beast wars

    Manterror is a good choice for a Predacus leg because in the IDW Beast Wars comics he was a Predacon on Cybertron, not a converted Maximal Protoform. He was even a motorcycle on Cybertron. He worked for Magmatron. Nice match.

    Powerpinch is not such a good choice because he was a Maximal Protoform converted into a Predacon with a shell program on ancient Earth. He was not a Predacon on Cybertron.

    A better choice might be Iguanus (who was a Frilled Lizard) who was an original Cybertronian Predacon.

    Yoooo how did I miss this thread? Consider me in for any releases, I have no intention of paying an arm and leg for the subpar botcon figures. The toy-team tho with Power Pinch and Manterror? *Mwah* Perfection. Keep pumping out some more pre-Earth Beast Warriors and you got yourself a regular customer.

    Definitely more interested in these colors over the Botcon set colors...

    So do you guys have an idea on prices yet? I know the price of the official set varies depending on where you buy it from (I paid $70 shipped personally), so would these be similar in price, or more expensive because of smaller runs? I assume they'll be somewhat pricier, but hoping they won't be overly so.

    I'm charging retailers $385 for a case of 24 per figure. You can do the math.

    I am not usually a 3rd party guy but I am really interested in the RED Tri-predacus version of this guy as I really dont want to pay those aftermarket prices for the botcon set. BUT I really need the correct heads, to me that is the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of the characters. No cartoon accurate heads means no buy from me.

    I am not for sure I want to take the risk of buying this guy and then the heads never coming out

    Also, it sort of sounds like they are hand painting this guy but then I noticed he says the plastic is being remolded ? cast in the correct colors ?

    Its not hand painted right ? its factory painted ? I dont do hand painted stuff, EVER.

    Watching this very closely for the proper heads and then if its cartoon accurate it will be an instant buy if i can get it.

    As long as you produce those heads like you said, Ill be happy to buy them at an additional cost and this as well.

    I think this is what 3rd party companies should be doing . Giving us guys that Hasbro most lkely wont give us or in the case of the botcon set, give us a chance to get these guys again.

    I dont need another optimus prime, I need guys like this.

    Really really hoping you guys come through on the heads because I really really want to buy it

    will these come individually or a box set ?

    Personally Id prefer single releases.

    Thank you!

    Those heads are in development as we speak, should have renders soon.

    They will be released Individually at around $20 - $30 (probably closer to $20). The TOY colors will probably be a set, and then the Tigertron and _______ are a two-pack.

    Personally, if I was going to buy a toy colored set version, I wouldnt be interested in the US colors, I would be interested in only the Japanese BW2 color set BUT with that said I could see why US buyers would want the US toy color set.

    but for me , the cartoon red set is what I want.

    and again Id be VERY Happy to buy the cartoon heads for an extra cost so please make sure those come out !!!

    Trying to think... This would be a guy who was a Predacon on Cybertron in the pre-Beast Wars era? Assuming a TV character... That narrows it to...

    Dinobot
    Megatron
    Scorponok
    Terrorsaur
    Waspinator

    Because Inferno, Quickstrike, Blackarachnia and Rampage were former Maximals.

    My guess: Terrorsaur from Strafe?
