Transformers BotCon 2013 Machine Wars Theme Revealed - Soundwave, Megatron, Starscream, Laser Prime, Galvatron

By Jack on Monday, December 03, 2012

Thanks to Allspark forums member Walky, we have confirmation that the Transformers BotCon 2013 theme will be Machine Wars. The news was revealed in the latest edition of the TFCC Magazine that appears to be landing in people's mailboxes just about now. Word is the image shows teasers for Machine Wars Soundwave, Megatron, Starscream, Laser Prime (RTS) and Galvatron. We can only hope there will be some actual Machine Wars molds such as the Universe King Atlas (shown below) offered up instead of reduxed figures, but we'll have to wait and see.
Silhouettes of MW Soundwave, Megatron, and Starscream standing over a wrecked RTS Laser Prime and Galvatron. These "Machine Wars" are a premonition of the future as seen by Sizzle.

(I suppose it could be Megaplex, not Megatron. Might make more sense, given Galvatron's right there. Or not, who knows.)

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

Didn't think of Dread wing, even though he is one of my favorites of the Prime line. I can see Megaplex using that mold. Though I am hoping they use the movie verse figures, but I think Paramount might say something about that

Actually I was thinking TFP Voyager Dreadwing would be a better Representation of Megaplex, there are more than a few areas of the mold that line up pretty well with the original Megaplex, all he'd need is a new head.

Totally forgot about that one.

RiD Megatron was considered an Ultra and the last two true Ultra's that were used for Botcon was 2006 BW Megatron, using the Ultra Cybertron Red Alert Mold 2010 G2 Clench using the Universe Ultra Onslaught Mold. The main thing is Pete said Voyager for the basics not Ultra Though Starscream co... read more

Was the RID Megatron mold an ultra? If so, then '05 with Deathsaurus.

Well according to Pete Sinclair, there will be new characters, so we won't be seeing all of the characters from MW as exclusives, though Megaplex was basically confirmed along with Megatron. Pete also said that some of the basics will now become Voyager size, and while colors will be the same, m... read more

Dear god I hope none of that comes to pass, also it was mentioned that just before last years botcon the A/E/C molds were being retired from Botcon, so we won't be seeing anything from there, and I'd rather see Wreckage retooled into MW Soundwave anyway. Also Optimus looks like he won't... read more

Don't forget, this is about likeness, not scale. I'm sure they'll use the Thunderwing mold again with a new head and chest for Starscream. If they're really basing this on the Machine Wars likenesses then Megatron will probably be the Seeker Jet mold. Optimus will probably be the lon... read more

Octopunch wasn't in the set, he was part of the two figure add-on, you're right about Gigatron, however no Voyager molds really exist that can capture anybody from the Machine Wars days, Universe Silverbolt would have been good for Starscream, but that's an Ultra, when was the last time... read more

Gigatron was a Voyager mold....in the boxset... and so was Octopunch.

More Collectors Club News
The Transformers Collectors Club Facebook page has been updated with the character art for the remaining four figures, after Bludgeon and Impactor had their art revealed earlier this year. Produced by Marcelo Matere and Josh Perez, this art is surely bound for bio cards when the figures hit production next year. Also of note in this reveal, Ruckus has had to adopt the new name "Grabuge", a French word that effectively means "ruckus". Keep reading to check out all four pieces of art.
The Transformers Collectors' Club has revealed the last figure from the Dawn Of The Predacus boxset: Sea Clamp. As the center of the combiner, Sea Clamp uses the Scattershot variation of the Combiner Wars Voyager Class Silverbolt mold in some very Scattershot-like colors. The only thing left to reveal is the very red combiner form itself, which is said to have a new head mold as well. Keep reading to see Sea Clamp!
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is almost always in the lead when it comes to receiving new figures from the Collector's Club, and today is no exception. John has gotten the final TFSS shipment for this cycle, known already to be Krok. Shipped together with it is the "mystery bonus" figure, this time a Generations Legends mold. Thanks to John we have lots of photos of both. We won't disclose the identity of the extra figure here, but you can of course keep reading to see both figures and find out who Krok is bundled with!
Forums member Tambeyoda has shared with us his video review for G2 Starscream, the latest shipped figure from the third Figure Subscription Service set. While the Club warned members that these figures would arrive misassembled with no help to be offered, Tambeyoda seems to be among a lucky few who received correctly assembled figures. Keep reading to check out the embedded video and get a good look at the figure in both modes.
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is bringing us another great look at the newest shipped piece from the third Transformers Figure Subscription Service, Classics G2 Starscream. This figure is the subject of a misassembly warning issued recently, the result being that the wings can't properly be folded without risk of breaking the toy, and no replacement will be made. This aside, the G2 look has been captured well, and this is supposedly the final outing from the Club for this mold. Click through to check out the photos!
