Botcon 2013 Exclusive Hoist revealed


It’s that time of year again where we patiently wait for the unveiling of each of the Botcon box set exclusives to be revealed until registration goes on sale before we see all of them and quickly sells out. The theme this year for the box set is Machine Wars. This was a very short lived line from 1997 that was really only available at Kay-Bee Toys stores.


Today we get a look at Hoist. Hoist was a basic figure in the line. He was a tow truck that looked a little more like a dump track with a hook on the back of it. Fun Publications has chosen to use the Generations Kup mold with a retooled head for this figure. The image seen is just a mock-up and not the actual figure, so our mileage is likely to vary, but as far as robot mode goes, it looks pretty good. The head is pretty spot on and I’m pleased with the translation from the original figure. The color scheme is very basic, so it matches pretty well. I imagine they saved some money on paint apps for this figure so they can lavish some other figure in the line. I don’t think the vehicle mode is a good match. Kup is a pickup, whereas Hoist is supposed to be a tow truck. He’s not really hoisting anything, though. He’s more hauling than anything else.

What do you think of Hoist? Tell us in the comments and help us speculate what other figures could be coming in this set!

Transformers Collectors’ Club 2012 Membership Exclusive Runamuck revealed

The Tranformers Collectors Club has revealed their exclusive membership figure for 2012 and it is none other than Runamuck. Their website revealed the robot and alt modes for the figure, while the head turnaround image was posted to their twitter account. The club’s facebook page had the reveal for the actual head sample. Runamuck’s partner, Runabout, will most likely be one of the two club exclusive figures for 2012 like this year’s Animated Cheetor and G2 Ramjet.

I must say the club has guaranteed a membership renewal from me. This figure looks fantastic. I inquired further on Twitter and confirmed that the head turnaround was done by Dan Khanna. If you want this figure you will need to renew your club membership by March 16th 2012. Any renewals after that time will guarantee you the figure for 2013.

Transformers Collectors Club Transtech Cheetor robot mode revealed

We had seen the vehicle mode and character art for Transtech Cheetor at the end of November, but we never got to see a picture of the finalized robot mode. Today that has been revealed and we get our first look at the new head based on the previously shown character art.

It might be just me, but I think a little something was lost in translation.

Botcon 2011 Exclusive Stunticon Wildrider revealed has revealed the fourth figure in this year’s convention exclusive box set of Animated Stunticons. As expected, it is Wildrider. He uses the Blazing Lockdown mold with a retooled head. Unfortunately the hands aren’t fixed, but the head is pretty interesting. We also got a new view of the head thanks to the Collector Club’s facebook page. Next week, we finally get to see Motormaster!
