boxed set predictions

If its about Transformers, the toys, it's fair game.

They haven't done it yet so why would they start now besides botcon figures usually have a certain aesthetic that the movie toys don't have

Here's the issue with the Club and the movie molds.
  • All Movie 1 molds are off limits
  • All on-screen character/Paramount-designed character molds from ROTF, 2010, and DOTM are off limits
  • Non-film character/non-Paramount-designed character molds molds from ROTF, 2010, and DOTM are okay (like how Bludgeon and Dirge have been)
Though, the Club has also recently taken to using no molds below Deluxe class, so all the smaller-than-Deluxe molds from all four movie-based toylines aren't really up for consideration anymore.

The available movie toyline molds are:

ROTF
Deluxe:
Blazemaster/Evac
Dirge/2010 Jetblade
Lockdown/2010 Axor
Brawn/2010 Fallback

Voyager:
Stratosphere
Bludgeon/2010 Banzaitron
Mindwipe/2010 Strafe

2010
Deluxe:
Hailstorm/Mindset
Terradive/DOTM Space Case
Tomahawk/DOTM Vortex/Generations GDO Springer

Voyager:
Sea Spray/Deep Dive
Highbrow/Generations GDO Powerdive

DOTM
Deluxe:
Air Raid (maybe)

Voyager:
Skyhammer


So everyone else is either an on screen movie character mold, the redeco/remold of one, too small, or simply doesn't meet a workable criteria for the Club.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Technically bludgeon, hailstorm, tomahawk, teradive, seaspray, and highbrow aren't "movie" figures there hunt for the decepticons figures

I understand that hftd was a continuation of the movie line but they still weren't mainstream movie line as well the hftd figures had a slightly different aesthetic

But then again I could just be talkin out my tail pipe agian

"Hunt for the Decepticons" wasn't the name of the toyline. It was an online game the toys were promoting. The name of the toyline was just "Transformers".

And all five of those guys (and Bludgeon) appeared in the post-ROTF/pre-DOTM five-part story "Unite for the Universe".

Yup. :P The whole point of the HFTD promotion was that the Autobots and N.E.S.T. were "hunting" down the Decepticons between movies.

And the toyline was called "Autobot Alliance" in Japan, and featured only the movie-based molds and none of the ones that fit in the Classics-style that the line would feature upon evolving into its Reveal the Shield phase.

Now that we know the last one is Megaplex, it's gotta be a jet mold.
