    Hope this isn't for TF Prime I want all new molds! Hmm..it was one of the better Energon molds, so maybe G1 Scorponok colors might look good.

    I got lucky one day and found Energon Scorponok and Armada Tidal Wave at a yard sale about a year ago.

    Thankfully they had all their pieces except their missles(which dosnt bother me too much).

    Anywho, the Scorponok mold kicks so much ass.

    For those that keep talking about a giant spider in WFC,it's a freaking giant drill with 4 legs,nothing like a spider.

    Never rounded this mold up so hopefully I will snag this one! And the G1 color scheme just makes it even sweeter!

    Hmm. I'm not the biggest fan of A/E/C molds being repainted for CHUG, but I'm a big fan of the comics and Scorponok is pretty much an essential character there. I'd say he's as important a Decepticon as Megatron in the G1 classic comics, and he had a really memorable relationship with Optimus. As a result...might get it if it's a good price. Not as if I have the mold.

    That's not what people are talking about. There's a shot in the one of the trailers that shows a giant head of what appears to be a spider with multiple eyes and fangs. I'm pretty sure that it's a drone and not a transformer, but it looks like a spider none the less. That's what people are referring to.

    If there are only 1,000 pieces, I'm gonna call this one a Botcon exclusive. And, given this years theme, I'll go ahead and say it's Double Punch.

    So, that will give us:

    1 box set w/Spark, Streetstar, Clutch, Breakdown, and Sky-Byte.
    1 Free figure. (either Rapido or Slicer)
    1 2-pack w/Double Punch and a deluxe (either Rapido, Slicer, or an unknown Deluxe)
    1 2-pack of Deluxes. (either Rapido, Slicer, or unknown)
    1 3-pack of sharkticons. (including Gnaw)

    I call the Gnaw as part of a 3-pack because of last years Sweep set. If I remember correctly, it sold out very quickly. Plus it'll give Sky-Byte some troops to command.

    Tom Servo did a great custom of that, complete with headmaster. Do a search, it's worth it! great job.

    Cool. Though he's a ultra/mega so the only thing lately that he would fit into is a universe ultra box. The only line recently to use ultras.

    Perhaps this indicates that generations will have a ultra class for figures like this arachnid repaint. and Things like War for Cybertron Omega Supreme.

    I will be glad to pick up this awesome mold again. Especially if it has arachnids awesome black, orange, and metalic purple colors.

    I'd guess the free figure is unknown and then:

    2-pack of Doublepunch & Rapido
    3-pack of Sharkticons
    Shattered Glass 2-pacK of SG Wheeljack with either SG Ratchet or SG Galvatron

    I'm thinking you're right, but I'm willing to bet good money that the freebie figure isn't Rapido because he has a new head that isn't used in the box set.

    The Sharkticon is most likely the freebie, at least out of what we've seen. It's a mold already used, and with Rapido, he's unlikely free what with the new head. Slicer probably isn't free either unless that mold is used again.

    I just remembered something from last year... Wasn't there some news report from Botcon that the Sweeps were going to be available for three years?

    I don't remember ever hearing anything like that.


    I didn't think about Doublepunch before when I commented that I'd be surprised if this was a BotCon thing. That could work, especially if the E Downshift redeco is Slicer. I could see that being a set. Of course, if that's the case, Slicer will have an Autobot symbol.

    I still don't know what to think about the freebie. I half think we haven't seen it yet.

    With the reveal of SG Ravage, it's now just as likely that the Downshift recolor is SG Wheeljack. So... it -could- be a Euro-AM set with Double Punch/Slicer. Or it -could- be a SG bonus pack with Wheeljack/Ravage, and Scorch also thrown in to connect to the main set. It's certainly been an odd year for Botcon.

    My current prediction...

    Freebie - Gnaw or (Unknown)
    2-pack - Double Punch + Rapido
    2-pack - Scorch + SG Ravage + SG Slicer
    3-pack - Gnaw + Troopbuilders (assuming we get another 3-pack)

    I'm assuming there are going to be 3 add-on sets this year. It worked so well last year, they'd be crazy not to do it again.

    I couldn't resist... :lol

    Anyway, back to topic, I have E. Scorpy and love the mold. I almost tend to think they'll use the Dark Scorponok mold for this, as it appears Hasbro has enjoyed reintroducing the cyber-key gimmick since '07 movie line. However this repaint could allow them to create/repaint a Lord Zarak Mini-Con...

    The one thing that this mold really needs, imo, are swivel joints at the elbow much his 3" Titanium counter part has.

    Hmmmm. With the news of Scorch today, I'd say that fills in the unknown figure. So now it'll look like this.

    1 box set w/Spark, Streetstar, Clutch, Breakdown, and Sky-Byte.
    1 Free figure. (either Rapido or Slicer)
    1 2-pack w/Double Punch and a deluxe (either Rapido, Slicer, or Scorch)
    1 2-pack of Deluxes. (either Rapido, Slicer, or Scorch)
    1 3-pack of sharkticons. (including Gnaw)

    I'm not gonna call Scorch as the freebie figure cause he comes with SG Ravage. Given that Rapido has a new head, I'll say Slicer is most likely the free one.
