We all saw the Christmas miracle that was bestowed upon us from Botcon – the brochure and listing of exclusive toys that would be gracing the boxset this year. In a strange turn of events the boxset will have six figures instead of the usual five. Could this mean we are getting extra plastic crack or that it will be comprises solely of deluxes and smaller?
Here’s the roster:
- Evil Ultra Magnus
- Evil Tracks
- Heroic Soundwave
- Heroic Treadshot
Twitter has told us that no Armada / Energon / Cybertron molds have been used for this year, thank the Heavens. So it’s lookin’ like classics molds again, which is all anyone really wants. Some speculation on the molds to be used are as follows:
Metalhawk as Universe Cyclonus.
Treadshot as Universe Warpath
Soundwave as Ironhide / Ratchet mold
Magnus is clearly going to be the G2 Laser Prime mold with a Bludgeon styled head.
Evil Track isn’t too hard to decipher – probably a black or red repaint of the current Tracks toy.
The one big question is is what will Overlord be? Will they focus on the jet? The Tank? BOTH? NEITHER?!!?!? Some possibilities include Deluxe Thunderwing, Ultra Silverbolt, or maybe even Warpath again if Treadshot doesn’t claim the mold. I’m also sniffing around the Cybertronian Megatron mold… Maybe we’ll get a super treat and have some sort of combiner made of two figures?!? Yeah right, but it’s fun to be a nerd sometimes. Whatever they choose for Overlord, that’s what I am anticipating the most.
So what else? What else is bound to come our way? Let’s leave that for another day… or the next post!
