BotCon 2013 may still be five months away (June 27th-30th in San Diego), but the cover to the current issue of the Transformers Collectors' Club Magazine has your FIRST LOOK at one of the toys from the 5-figure box set available exclusively from BotCon. Check it out the cover featuring HOIST, then visit www.botcon.com for all the latest Transformers convention news and updates!

Golly, that head looks A LOT like Electro.

Guess we know about two, then.

Cool pic of creepy Machine Wars Ninja-Hoist.

It doesn't super say MW Hoist (though I see the Homage) to me, but I like the way it looks just for being "different."


-ZacWilliam, the use of that mold makes me want an Electro from them BADLY. Except I'm gonna be pissed to have missed him of course...

Sweet, new Hubcap toy, probably.

Or, no, wait. Spark is right. That's the Electro-est head. .... they won't do two yellow guys out of this tooling at the same con.

...dang.

but...

wanted hubcap...

NICE. You're definitely right about Electro, Spark. I wonder if they will go for that Triple dip with Hubcap too.

If they wanted to just blow loads of money on paint, they could cast Electro in black or silver and paint all the paintable parts of him gold, then get away with a Hubcap cast in yellow.

That's pretty cool! The head does make a good Hoist and Electro if the guesses are true.

Hm. That wouldn't have been my first choice, but I guess it works. The dark red (red-purple?) helps break up the black a bit while still keeping it recognizable. I had immediately assumed that Hubcap would be in the set somewhere, but Electro would make me happier.
I have signatures disabled because they suck.

Hoist's head there looks more like Electro than MW Hoist, so I'm pretty sure I'm right.

grrrrrrr

Kup is in the absolute middle of my Big Redecoes Flowchart, completely landlocked, and connecting MW Hoist to him opens up the chart to like a dozen more dudes.

...why FP, why...



That's a lotta new dudes.

Oh I agree. The only really Hoist-over-Electro like aspect are the circles on his head.

They'll just hold back Hubcap for the next figure subscription. It'll work out fine!

I expected Hoist to be all black, but this look still fits the Machine Wars aesthetic perfectly.

You're turning into the real-life version of that little devil that hovers over people's shoulders and tells them to do horrible things. I'm not liking this development.

Lesson of the day, when we go on some crazy quest, don't let Fnu Aw hold the Dues Ex Magical Artifact.

Right, that's it. Tomorrow, I'm painting a giant pentagram on the floor, then buying a goat and sacrificing it to Fnu Aw, Lord of All Evil.

Hmm, the accent color looks a lot more purple than I remember MW Hoist's being (I remember it being more brown) but it could just be the lighting (or photoshop? Are we even sure it's a photo?). That and mold layout - MW Hoist was mostly black with very small amounts of the brown (just the biceps, crotch and hook I think) but I can understand wanting to add more color to break it up.

I actually really hate that head as Hoist, since it doesn't really get his visor/mouth right at all... on the other hand, it does look a lot more like Electro, so if it was done to be shared I can understand.

Overall, not bad, but it misses all my favorite parts about the original MW Hoist so this one won't be selling me on the set.
