Most people don't care about this Circuit because most people don't care about Circuit. I had to look op who he was and yet another obscure euro only toy doesn't do it for me.

Eh. Personally I don't care about it because I can't see this mold as anyone but Lockdown, especially not some random Autobot AM. It was fine for Axer at the time, but that was before the Wreck-gar mold existed. After that, they both should have been redecoes of Scrapheap.

But Axer didn't turn into a motorcycle. He just rode one. And the Wreck-Gar mold looks ever less like him than the Lockdown one.

For those who can't or won't be subscribing or buying individually through the Club, maybe we should set up a separate thread for those who plan to subscribe, but don't want all of them.

Essentially, if one person wants Slipstream and Jackpot only and the other wants Mammoth and Circuit only, they share the costs by directly or buy off of subscriber.


So, basically one person gets a subscription, and they sell the toys they don't want for X amount that they bought them for in the first place plus Y amount for shipping to another person?

That sounds like a fair bargain, assuming the scalpers don't abuse it.

I'm sure you'll find someone willing to part with their Breakdown, and for cheaper than going through the Club.


Breakdown is another release I also wanted but didn't think we would ever get. They don't normally reuse new heads from previous Botcon exclusives until now.

What's next for Breakdown and Botcon/OTFCC? Animated G2 Breakdown?

Depth Charge was a flyer with an aquatic alt mode in the TV series. This toy is a jet with a trident. Works for me. When do we get a Slave-1 recolor?

Depth Charge was a flying vehicle in Beast Wars, too. His vehicle mode looked just like the Starhopper shuttle he arrived in.

I guess.

I just always saw that mode as secondary. An added bonus. Not something that reflected his past alt/mode. His name is Deapth Charge after all, not Sky Charge.

And I gotta add, that Ultra Mammoth is one of the most God-awful ugly things I have ever seen! Someone said that they were really "over" with evil Optimus Prime repaints; well I am really, REALLY, well and over Ultra Magnus Optimus Prime repaints.

I was wounder how tall she would be compared to Classics and Friends Seekers.

The answer to both of your questions can be found here. Scroll down for the size comparisons.


Thanks! The size and look are good enough to have Slipstream with the other Animated Seekers. Let's hope the head would be good enough, too.

Major character? She was in a total of three episodes.


Hmm... try "one of most memorable" instead "a major". A Slipstream toy is a dream for most Animated Fans. Who doesn't want a complete Starscream's clones set?

Very similar to my thought. Why this Breakdown obsession? Every year we have another Breakdown! Because of him I am loosing one slot for another marvelous Animated figure like Jackpot icon-hotrod.gif

The club does this mix of figure to assure that all kinds of fans have some figures that they like. I have Jackpot, Slipstream and Scourge. My wife likes Ultra Mammoth. You will have Breakdown, there is someone that would like Circuit...

You don't want Animated, I (usually) don't want G1 stuff and (I guess) we both don't want Beast Era toys. If one of us got 100% happy, the other will be 100% sad. This year Botcon set and exclusives is a big pass, no Animated toys. I only want the SG Junkions and ever those will wait until I pay and buy other things.

I understand the Botcon sets have a common theme across all the figures, so are more hard to be good for everyone. But the subscription needs to be more diverse and made in a way that most fans want to subscribe.

I also prefer Axor and Circuit to be homages to their original Action Master robot modes, not their accessories. We got Axer's Turbo Cycle updated as Chopsaw. And Circuit has nothing to do with being a motorcycle of any form.

I dislike the whole idea of the Lockdown mold being redecoed into Axer because it seems to me the main justification is not that they actually look similar, but that they're both bounty hunters. Sure, they both turn into cars, but that's about it. That's a bit like saying the Generations Silverbolt mold would've made a good Starscream because they're both jet-team leaders. I'm much happier Hasbro prioritized physical appearance and chose Darkwing instead. I likewise would've preferred that Lockdown be redecoed as Ravage or Cannonball or a Junkion or Autobot Spike - something that really would've taken advantage of his looks, since once the toy becomes a new character it doesn't matter one whit who the previous persona was. (I have the same feelings about tank-Banzaitron.)

So as little business as I think the Lockdown mold has being made into Axer, Circuit is then an even less appropriate usage. Not only is there no substantial resemblance, but what kind of smooth-talking salesman would ever want to look that monstrous?

The higher the run, the cheaper these get, so will funpub fix the run size, or solicit orders first, or what?

This would also be a great way to get the lost Animated molds, the Asian market remolds, and FE out.

I'd rather Detritus be repainted from Hound like he was before.

And because of The Stunti-Con Job, I'd rather movie Lockdown be remolded into Wildrider again. Lockdown should never be repainted into someone else without a head remold though. That head should belong to him alone.

Is it crazy I'm more interested in these seven toys and the Botcon exclusive toys this year than any of the new Prime and FoC molds they shown us?

Also, should there be more Beast Wars era molds used in future or should Ultra Mammoth be a one off? I thought they were too old now and the Club was unwilling to touch them due to their age. I assume we only get Ultra Mammoth due to the mold's release as Nemesis Prime and its still not possible to use the likes of Lio Convoy and Galvatron.

I think maybe there should be a unifying theme in future years. Something that gives people reason to keep the set together but the random characters homaging all eras and using a variety of molds is fun too. Maybe future subscription packages should compliment that years Botcon toys - expanding on the teams that the Botcon toys are a part of. Say Quake and Needlenose to accompany Spinister, plus SG Bludgeon and Stranglehold to accompany SG Octopunch were the service had happened this year.
