Toy Review: Botcon 2015 Exclusive Oilmaster

The "Double Pretender" process was once considered a myth: until Oilmaster arrived on the scene! This unique Decepticon can control all three of his compnents perfectly at the same time making him a team all by himself. Check out my review of Oilmaster, the first Botcon exclusive to feature a whole new Pretender shell!

Toy News: Official photos of Botcon 2015 Oilmaster

The Botcon 2015 site has put up official photos of Oilmaster, the surprise final reveal for the Botcon 2015 boxed set. Oilmaster is partly based on an abandoned concept from the era before the "Beast Wars". This gorilla like shell is a new sculpt based on the old one. Oilmaster is a redeco of Legends Class Swerve and fits into the back of the shell! I'm really looking forward to this one myself.
