Default Transformers Club update with possible hint for more BotCon exclusives

http://www.transformersclub.com/

That's Cybertron Armorhide done up as Huffer, Thunderblast done up Elita-1 and Cybertron Defense Hot Shot done up as Springer (!).

I see... even more unhappy fans! :P

Springer's an odd choice, but I suppose E-Bulkhead wouldn't have been much of a change.

The red one above Grimlock, does that look like a possible Powerglide to anyone else? I can't quite figure out who the one is between Magnus and Grimlock though it looks sorta like another Dinobot but damned if I know who or what it's repainted from. The last obscure figure below Elita-One is a mystery to me. I can't place the character or the repainted mold at all.

The three tiny ones are existing RID2 minicons.

Sadly, I don't know their names by heart.. heh.

They're the classics minicons.

The red one behind Grimlock is Swoop. The one below Elita-One is Strongarm, but I can't tell who the one behind Magnus's shoulder is.

"Robots in Disguise 2" . The actual package name for the 'classics' line is still "Robots in Disguise".

...

anyway, i thought that the guy behind Ultra Magnus's shoulder looked like Action Master Snarl, and getting a better look at the picture, i became more convinced it does. Then i saw a comment by Alex Milne on his deviantart page that confirms it's Snarl.

Hot Shot as Springer makes sense - but I would have expected the normal version, rather than defense. But then, maybe the feel that mold already has a G1 inspired repaint.

There are similarities in body design at least! Odd alt. mode with defense though.

Armorhide as Huffer is inspired (always reminded me of him anyhoo)!

And Elita-1? I've never been her biggest fan to be honest. I found her irritating in the cartoon - but as a full grown boy, I must say she allows for some hilarious inuendos in the episodes she graces!

What?! There's nothing suggestive about "only your design can interface with Elita-1's". It's computer lingo, nothing more.

Nice. If they make a Classics Snarl, I need to track it down.

Nah, it's a habit I got into in organizing some of my projects. Only SOME of the RID2 toys are 'classics'. (This will be important at the end of the year, I suspect)

That fact we're all HERE means we've all got the coke-bottle lenses, at least in spirit.

Seeing the world in shades of ale?

I wonder, though, if we're going to see some classics-themed online store exclusives. The oft-rumored Seaspray, etc, would do pretty well there.
