Thanks to Weibo user Lost-Zzl we have a possible spoiler images from this year's BotCon 2015 of what appears to be a cammo-repaint of the Generations Roadbuster mold. This is rumored to a General Optimus Prime figure based on the unpronounced G2 Optimus Prime auto-roller toy. We are still a couple months out from BotCon in June, so there is no telling what may appear yet. Keep in mind, this is unconfirmed at this time. Read on to see the images until we know more.

Fun Publications has just posted official images showing off the fourth of five boxset toys for this year's Botcon. As basically everyone had figured out already, "The Boss" is a Dark of The Moon inspired Megatron using the Arms Micron Silas Breakdown mold. While the video shows a new head sculpt fusing movie and G1 styles, and three included Arms Microns, no mention is made of the panel with Silas himself sculpted in to it. Read on to see the official images below.
Lost-Zzl has again produced high-quality photos of an upcoming exclusive figure. Taking a break from Subscription Service offerings, today it's photos of Packrat, the updated form of a classic Botcon exclusive that was the first official reveal from Fun Publications from this year's set. Looking no less blue than it did before, we get a better look at the figure's deco in this shoot, so click through and check it out!
Through the Botcon Twitter account we have a much clearer look at the recolor of Generations Chop Shop that will in some capacity be part of one of the exclusives available at Botcon this summer, which was originally publicly revealed on the recent episode of the TFYLP podcast. Wide speculation has this being in some way related to the classic Botcon character Vice Grip, though the deco itself references back to the pre-Transformers origins of the Deluxe Insecticon molds just as much. Until we find out for sure, you can check out the image by hitting the title link!
Pete Sinclair was a guest on tonight's live recording of the TFYLP podcast, and during the course of the episode the hosts got the chance to pick one of two possible reveals to be made. Their choice resulted in the unveiling of what is part of something connected to the main box set, but not a part of it itself, a blue and silver recolor of Generations Chop Shop, originally the partner figure for Legends-class Megatron. Superfan Monzo snapped a screenshot of it, which we've mirrored. Click through to check that out while we wait for the next boxset reveal this Tuesday!
Following a quick reveal recently, today Lost-Zzl on Weibo has posted a number of high quality photos of an early sample of Subscription Service 3 Tarantulas. Still absent are the planned Arms Microns that should let the toy emulate the character's original clawed appearance, but otherwise it's a great look at a fairly polarizing piece of the latest subscription lineup. Click through and check out the mirrored photos!
Weibo user toyspie has revealed that the Collectors Club will be offering a Nova Prime figure later this year! Sporting the LioConvoy headsculpt on the Orion Pax figure body, Nova Prime's maybe not as creative a recolor as LioConvoy himself, but it's good to see a representation of the character. Keep reading to see the photos!

The BotCon website has posted a set of images teasing the Cybertron's Most Wanted figure set. Shown are five pair of identical robot hands holding placards, presumably part of a set of cropped mug shots. Besides the figures' titles - "The Thief," "The Muscle," "The Loose Cannon," "The Boss," and "The Bounty Hunter" - the placards contain several numbers that may or may not provide some insight as to the figures or characters being used in the set. To accompany this, Fun Pub has posted a video to YouTube revealing the identity of "The Thief." Keep reading to see for yourself!
