    I think the club will continue to use combiners as the free toys - encourages people to stay with the club...

    Has there been an announcement of a new toy for this year like piranacon? I joined just for him - heatwave is a bonus...

    unfortunately i can only get this in the aftermarket. Any idea how much this will be? Close to the range of previous 4?

    Ugh.... nope, don't like the slack-jawed Merman head, though the double (literally) entendre name is amusing. How anticlimactic, after five years.

    On the upside, I like all the individual figures and the story behind the characters quite a lot. Just not the end-result combined mode. I guess I could always just keep displaying them as individual 'bots. Or maybe this ugly thing will grow on me after seeing it up close.

    It took me longer than expected to read this thread because when I first saw the pics in the first post I thought "neat! looks very nice," but then had to check and re-check the pics again and again everytime I read posts saying it looked bad.

    I know the first pics were somewhat blurred, but the important details were there. The only added detail I could see from the Allspark pics was that the black part of the head is more the lower portion of the face, than just a mouth.

    I quite like it, and I'm glad it's coming. Hopefully by the time I return from Botcon, Heatwave will be expecting me.

    That's why I like it. It sure has some common elements with Super Fire Convoy.

    :lol 

    *Rimshot*

    Wonder if it was intentional.

    Just came back from the memorial holiday and I got mine. I'm also in Texas so I got it quicker. I have all five limbs but my camera's on hiatus. If I get it back tonight I'll take some pics.

    I don't think they can, for the simple reason of what other combiner molds are there other than the Energon ones? And I seriously doubt FP would actually turn right around and go the way of yet another "Mix and Match" gestault anyway.

    Beast Wars Magnaboss = 3

    Beast Wars Tripredacus = 3

    Beast Wars Magmatron = 3

    Energon Grimlock & Swoop = 2

    Energon Constructicons = 3 unique figures or 5 (depends what they do)

    Energon Stormjet = as a replacement "flight mode" center for Heatwave.

    just to name a few.

    Non-Combiners:

    anything shattered glass.

    Devcon.

    any figures repainted into comic book only TF's with new heads.

    Previously Japan only figures.

    G1 Bruticus repaint?

    They did the seacons as one set - why not do the next over a number of years?

    I am not endorsing this idea. They havn't announced anything else this year, so I don't think we will know anything for a while!

    Interesting. Didn't realize FunPub actually made it a long-term thing for releasing this toy.

    I'm apathetic towards the Energon combiner molds (it's the funky hands, y'see), but I give FunPub props for their strategy, and sticking to it.

    Just got mine in the mail today and the face looks much better in person. Also, this guy must be Meth Kitty's dealer with that backpack.

    That head looks off, solely because the eyes are too high ~ generally on a humanoid they eyes should be about the middle of the head, these are sitting 2/3s-3/4s up his head making it look wierd ~ his head should extend up a bit more on each side of the center crest like most Optimus prime head molds.

    it reminds me a little bit of Omega Prime's head...
    remember when every mold except the first was too have a new head?

    Your figure arrived broken?

    Does the combiner head break easily?

    Yup, but be careful, a little bit of revisionist history is occuring on that and certain people will request that you show where it was written down.
