looks like it's heading back to Texas ^^
sadly its still too far for me to attend..who knows, maybe this year i'll be able to get the non-attendies package Assimilate



based on the preview, i suspect Suspect a G2/Liege Maximo theme, which would rule, especially if they make a G2-esque Jhiaxus or any of the Hub Warriors

Well Jacqi (I love spelling it exotic like that!), after a quick jaunt to TFWiki, I believe they're using Universe 2.0 Ironhide mold in white for "sir" Soundwave, and he's gonna be the van for band Cold Slither, you know, for that g.i joe reference too.

Oh ok, *deep breath* cuz I was like "wha? a bat shit crazy ultra violent evil optimus prime? how can she dislike that?". Ok now that I know what you mean, i do agree some of the molds and some of the color pallets are abit WTF to me as well. I honestly figure its about 50/50, for each one they get right, there is just as many as they get wrong, and I think even split is really the best they can hope for you know?

Like, personally, I love the character of Shattered Glass Grimlock, yes i'm a huge Grimlock fan everyone knows this, but the idea of him being super brilliant and super insane is awesome, but, i hate that he's got Trypticon's colors, shattered glass metroplex should have those, like how shattered glass Omega Supreme should be in constructicon colors, ect. I also love that they've made shattered glass Drift into Deadpool, but, I hate Drift in general lol. And well, i just love the hell out of Shattered Glass Ravage, cuz, you know, he's the one thats waving....

but yeah back on point some of them i'm abit shaky on, one of which is Soundwave, i've never see why Soundwave's default earth mode these days is an SUV, i always pictured him more as a lowrider, a black dark windowed classic car turned into a lowrider, something big and mean and awesome looking... not a truck.

yea sorry, lol was at work and couldnt get back on to complete the thought.. but yea..
i'm really disappointed with UM's colors..seriously..the promo piece pictured here was/is waaay cooler..but got lost in translation...and i dont really care for any of the rest of the figs..soundwave lost me from the begining..just overall poor choice of alt mode. all n all, i really cant justify the expense for something that i would just box up

Isn't Magnus in his Diaclone colors? cuz I never really cared for those, he should be in Cyclonus colors, sense he's second in command to Prime or whatever, thus ranked with Cyclonus.

As for BotCon exclusives, i have to admit, i do buy about half my toys with the intent of keeping them boxed up, but, dunno, if i'm spending all that money to get exclusives I kind of want original molds, not recolors with new heads you know? but that being said, you spend like 200 dollars on the box set, and you get like 5 to 9 figures sometimes in it, but you get more too, like, you get the dinner exclusive, the hall of fame exclusive, the painting class exclusive, the building exclusive, ect.... so you get almost as many free as you pay for and they're all in the theme. So i guess i'm kinda on the fence with exclusives really.
