Botcon 2013: Photo Feed Now LIVE, Figure Exclusive News

Postby perceptor » Fri Jun 28, 2013 9:27 am

Let's get this party started! Although the convention hasn't officially begun (and we are en route), news is already coming in, and you can check out images on our LIVE PHOTO FEED, viewable in our soon-to-be rapidly developing Botcon 2013 Report, in the [urlhttp://www2.unicron.com/2013-transformers/events.html]2013 Events[/url] Section.

* The first interesting item to note is that the convention exclusive 3-pack will consist of "The Rainmakers" (Classics/G1, not Machine Wars...)
* The free-figure for Botcon Attendees is Machine Wars Starscream
* Other attendee-only 2-pack figures are: Mirage & Thundercracker; and Electrons and Sandstorm
Stay tuned, more updates coming, as they become available...

I'm curious as to why they called them rainmakers when Sunstorm and crew were separate from that group. Also WHOOT! Hasbro making new seekers can't go unnapreciated! A much better idea than the asia classics seekers (as much as i like the boxes, they look like worse versions of the henkei guys.)
Also: Custom class fig having more availability is a plus; lack of a bio is the downside.
Mirage stated as a fave figure at the TFCC panel.
I'm honestly surprised how much mold reuse they're doing. It was already quite a shock when SG/AM thundercracker was made, but a THIRD reuse alongside a second for Mirage opens up alot of possibility

Yeah, and he already had a toy.

Plus, these "Rainmakers" aren't the same three from "Divide and Conquer". They're the Seeker trio from "More Than Meets The Eye, Part 1" who block the path of Bumblebee and Wheeljack after stealing the energy conductors:

"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've held it in hand. It's more of a bluish turquoise than straight up blue (as a means to prevent it from looking too much like Thundercracker).

The Thundercracker figure is navy colored, so I think that is why.

That's backwards. Takara's the show colors group. Hasbro favors the toy colors.
