Bad Chi: Do Not Want by GigaLeo Bad Chi: Do Not Want by GigaLeo
After all the speculation and chatter, FunPub revealed a couple of weeks ago that the theme for this year's set will be Animated, giving us the Stunticons using the Animated molds. I'm impressed that they managed to get permission to use those molds because they all but said Animated was not an option for them. I'm also happy for those who wanted more Animated goodness, but for this fan this set misses the target painted on my wallet.

Thanks! I'm actually kind of glad I have little to no interest in this set since I don't think Botcon's going to be within my budget this year.

S'funny, I feel the same about Animated. Love the figures but they don't blend in with the Classics at ALL and those are my main collecting priority. It's funny to see someone with the exact same thoughts as me.

But what REALLY bugs me about the Stunticon set is that I just don't like cross-faction repaints. I can get two bots on the SAME SIDE sharing a body type, but unless there's an in-story explanation it doesn't make much sense for enemies to mold themselves to look alike.

I agree, I'll accept most weirdness if there's a decent story explanation for it. I think the going story for the Stunticons is that the Decepticons purposefully styled them after Autobots. They might change it for Botcon, but I definitely recall reading that somewhere.

That could be cool. Motormaster molded after Optimus would actually be pretty awesome.

My immediate thought was Wreck-Gar for Motormaster because of the boxy head, but I've seen people suggest a black Prime with a remolded head plus the Wingblade armor. *That* would actually look really cool, so I'm curious to see what direction FunPub is going in. And because I have such a weakness for black repaints, I probably will get that if it's what they wind up doing.

Heh heh, my own first thought was Motormaster, but being a "clone" of Optimus would be an interest homage to the rivalry Motormaster had with Optimus back in G1.

That's what made this year both a surprise and disappointment for me. I'm impressed that something must have changed for them to be allowed to use the molds, but I had grown comfortable 'knowing' that there wouldn't be a set using molds I couldn't fit in with the rest of my collection. So much for that :|

Uhn! So there is a kind of.... wall between the Classic Transformers and the Animated series? ^^

Only in their visual style, so far Animated has been one of the best series produced and made some amazing references to G1. The sad thing is, as great as the series was, the toys just don't mix well with the more classics style figs.
