BotCon 2013 theme finally revealed!!!

Postby Sabrblade » Mon Dec 03, 2012 1:30 pm

At last, we know what the theme for the 2013 BotCon convention will be! According to the latest issue of the Official Transformers Collectors Club magazine, the theme of next year's convention, which we were told would be set in the Wings Universe, will be... a series that was very short-lived and relatively obscure due to its severely limited release. Which series is this? Head through the space bridge to see.

Two words:

MACHINE WARS!
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“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

I can see this set going one of two ways:

Redecos of newer toys as the original toy characters (like Cybertron Defense Red Alert for Soundwave, Energon Starscream for Megatron/Megaplex, Classics Mirage for Mirage/Prowl, etc.)

Or,

Redecos of toys as OTHER MW characters to flesh out and expand upon the Machines Wars series by having new characters interacting with the existing ones to make the original line bigger and more developed.

I'm kinda hoping it's the latter since that would help to enhance the line more than it already is and create greater opportunities for more story to be told with a cast greater than just twelve individuals. :smile:

Well, they're definitely bringing back the old characters in the fiction. At the end of this magazine issue's comic story, silhouettes of MW Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave are seen, but in their original MW toy bodies, implying that they may keep those forms for the 2013 story.

It's very simple, a method that is very common, yet very awesome when applied to this franchise...
