    Hello everyone,

    I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this, but Seibertron is reporting that new photos are up of the Classics and Botcon toys along with Club Nightbeat.

    The photos are located at these two links.

    Interestingly, Blurr now has an external mechanical eye.

    Also, Happy Easter everyone! :D

    I liked Blurr before, but I think I like the look of the mechanical eye better.

    I realize that these are talking robots that are not meant to be completely taken seriously, but I've never really been able to wrap my head around a robot having a permanent deformity.

    Cue people saying "wow those look like crap, wtf happened?!" even though the pictures have most of them obviously mistransformed.

    Nuts. I was hoping to have Prowl and Sunstreaker in hand before more pics starting showing up online. Oh well. They look like they'll be pretty cool properly transformed.

    Those pictures need to be bigger, but so far so good! (referring to Classics 2.0 & Club Nightbeat). :tongue:

    Nope. I also don't get the excitement over this one. Did everyone forget what kind of crappy mold E-Hotshot is? :/

    Sooo...which one of those are the 'con exclusives again?

    Definitely getting the new molds (especially Prowl; I take his doors DO swing down to a more G1-accurate look?), though the Nightbeat looks pretty nifty too (I only wish he had a new head sculpt).

    he does have a new head sculpt....he doesnt have his antena due to a miscommunication between FP and the producing company, ie the producers cut off the antena to make the transformation work and didnt tell FP till it was too late....

    and RA88, that mold might not be the best, but its a great mold for nightbeat...i think he looks completely awesome, and cant wait to add him to my classics...

    Jazz, Riccochet, and Blurr are the Botcon exclusives, Nightbeat is a Club exclusive, and the others are from Classics 2.0. I'm looking forward to all of them! :D 

    The more I see of Blurr, the more I like him. I'm normally not as quick to purchase toys of crooks as I am of the good guys, but I really love the lightning paint job the Blurr has.:D  I can't wait to see Sideswipe and Megatron! :D

    Does this mean they're on their way to you or something?

    Sunstreaker went from yay to meh. At first I thought it was a Cybertron Crosswise remold (heavily remolded, of course) and the head is kinda fugly. Prowl looks pretty good. Tankor/Octane looks like the best of the bunch, no question there.

    Not commenting on the Botcon/club stuff 'cause I don't really care.
