Lost-Zz on Weibo has posted images of the upcoming Subscription Service 3.0 Tarantulas! Based on the Reveal The Shield Wreck-Gar/Generations Junkheap mold, this image set is from the same source as yesterday's General Optimus Prime photos - further suggesting that figure will be a BotCon piece. Keep reading to see some blindingly purple photos of Tarantulas!
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.
Just in is news of the latest guest to be joining the Transformers BotCon 2015 line-up, who is none other than John Moschitta, Jr. Fan will able to meet the character voice of the G1 version of Autobot Blurr as well as the voice of Transformers: Animated Blurr character. People across the world know John as the fastest talking man alive, who has not been at BotCon since 2000! Read on for the full details.
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!
