Toy Review: "Timelines" Botcon 2014 exclusive Cannonball

Cannonball is one in a long line of Pirate Decepticons to take on an infamous name. Charismatic, cunning and powerful, he prefers using skill instead of brute force to achieve his goals. With the crew of the Tidal Wave behind him he is a feared force in the galaxy. Check out my review of Cannonball from Botcon 2014!

Convention News: Fifth Botcon 2016 exclusive revealed

The Official Botcon web site has been updated with the fifth Botcon 2016 exclusive reveal! This time out it's the third member of the Tripredacus Council Sea Clamp! This figure is a redeco and retool of the upcoming Scattershot mold. I'm guessing there will be a new Combiner head as well based on Tripredacus (at least I hope so!).
