    Digging the box. This is how exclusives should be executed!

    On a side note - Maximal Rampage? Hmm...

    Agreed this looks cool. I got my Slipstream box and I was like what that's it:(

    Well, yeah. Technically he was always a Maximal - he was a science experiment created by the Maximals in secret, and then locked away when he went south. He only became Predacon by affiliation when Megatron forced him into service.

    Ditto with Quickstrike, actually - him and Rampage never actually had any Predacon programming in them, unlike Blackarachnia and Inferno for instance, who had a Predacon shell program.

    EDIT: Also, re: the boxes... they've always done stuff like this with the "specifically order this collector's toy" exclusives. They don't do it with the TFSS because that would drive up costs, printing the packaging and commissioning the artwork. (Plus then you have to pack the boxes inside another box which adds to shipping costs)

    Very cool. I like the packaging, seems cool to keep with the trend from Runamuck/Runabout.

    Give Mr. Tekno the news credit and front page this!

    Wait, wasn't the PRID Arcee mold supposed to be used for Transmutate? I seem to remember seeing a pic that used that mold.

    The original mockups all used the FE mold.

    The pics of the PRID one had everyone wondering given that wasn't the original plan.

    Rampage's head is all Beetlejuiced (like P/CP), and Transmutate's colors look nowhere near as nice as planned: The Official Transformers Collectors' Club

    Pretty :(  at the execution on this set. I liked the idea.

    I hope there's a few "Maximal Rampage" left over for sale at Botcon so I can snag a second one of those to put in the box that I'll likely get signed by Susan Blu.

    double box for the win. Have to say the art — with the very stylish hot/cold color scheme*—*really raises the value in my book. Plus the storyline giving characterization to the two figures also brings it all together... and to life. Huge hats off for a couple of great figures.

    Everyone with the Beast Wars Botcon box set... make a little room on your shelf.
