    It also fits well from a story perspective for of masters and mayhem, Bluestreak's original bio had him as a scarred last survivor of his home town, so having him as being one of the last survivors of Thunder Mayhem's rampage works well imo

    I have to echo the OP here - as much as I'd love to have my own CW Bluestreak, it being the Diaclone homage seems eccentric, and not in a good way, and something like Guzzle from Brawl, or ahem, Rotorstorm from Alpha Bravo would have been much neater.

    I disagree. I don't think either of those molds would've done the characters justice. I'd rather see Guzzle from Generations Warpath and Rotorstorm from DOTM Skyhammer, which would've been appropriate three years ago, considering BotCon Sandstorm's use of the mold.

    Meanwhile, I heavily appreciate the amount of detail on Bluestreak, and what's more is that it means that we once again have our Datsun trio again, this time as combiners! He also compliments the two Diaclone homages we got at BotCon a while back.

    Huh.... Yeah I like it but I really had my mind made up that I wanted to see something else Wreckers related like a Guzzle or Rotorstorm.

    Actually I think using CW Brawl works very well for Guzzle. Rotorstorm on the other hand would work best from HFTD Tomahawk since the mold does have some close cues for Rotorstorm.

    I can see where you're coming from with Brawl. Tread shoulders, tank barrel on his back, etc.

    At this point, you're right about Tomahawk. I'd happy with either mold being turned into Rotorstorm.

    Like I said in the other thread, I'm just thankful TT made him a separate character from Streak, though the names get twisty when crossing the sea...

    But if it says "Botcon" and is in a bag - would that be the secret figure?
    Don't the secret figures come packaged in the foam boxes like the other figures?

    I doubt that. Past club toys have had "BotCon 20XX" on the bag without actually being intended for any BotCon. It's just reflective of the fact that Fun Pub produces these all at once.

    This is just how Fun Pub gets pretty much ALL of their toys from the factory. For non-BotCon souvenirs that come to us in foam boxes, they just take the toys out of those bags and put them in the foam boxes.

    I guess that this release will feature mold degradation all over it, like AOE Grimlock (Made from the Beast Hunters Rippersnapper mold) or Encore Bruticus (you may know how many f-in times those molds were done to death)

    saw mention of this in another thread and got all excited thinking it was gonna be the Universe 2.0 Z mold, forgetting TFSS 4.0 was Combiner Wars. Massive disappointment ensues.

    I can't in good faith even remotely consider that a diaclone homage.

    (and the paint on the hood isn't even right)
