Just before the video showing the third exclusive boxset toy went live, the Botcon website was updated with a product page for the second reveal, Battletrap. Recolored from Generations Springer with a new head sculpt, the former Duocon more or less represents its source material - not to mention telegraphing a not-altogether-unlikely Flywheels to come up somewhere along the way. Click through to check out the page and the three new images!
Fun Publications has uploaded the next Botcon boxset reveal video to their Youtube channel. The third figure is "The Loose Cannon", following Packrat as The Thief, and Battletrap as The Muscle. The newest member of "Cybertron's Most Wanted" is Shattered Glass Stepper, from the Reveal The Shield Jazz mold. Stepper features no new parts, and a deco adding a lot of orange over the standard Stepper/Ricochet colors. We've embedded the video and taken some screencaps of the figure, so click through and check them out!
Once again with Botcon drawing ever closer, it's time to nominate characters and people to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame. Hasbro has reached out and asked for our help in choosing those nominees once again, so it's time to open the polls! This year we have three categories waiting for Fans' Choice nominations, so click through now to find out what they are and get links to the individual polls, open until 11:59 pm Central Time, Sunday, April 19th.
This year the Hall of Fame will be inducting a lucky musician or group who have contributed to official Transformers productions, be it movies or TV, or even official music videos! A great many people have had their hands in this field, and we've selected some personal favorites and some that have had significant influence on Transformers with their work. Keep reading, review the names, and let your vote be heard!
Joining the Favorite Character category, this year we have a special sub category for the current popular flavor, combiners! Fans are invited to vote for their favorite combiner characters, with one to eventually be selected for induction to the Hall of Fame. We've looked outside the typical box and gotten together some worthy combiners, and now it's up to you to pick who gets the nomination spots, so click through and get voting!
