Over ten years ago I had the opportunity to help develop the first Botcon exclusive set of toys by Fun Publications. One figure I worked on was Chromia (originally intended to be Moonracer). While I reviewed the figure years ago, its photos definitely needed an update! Check out my review and gallery of "Timelines" Chromia!
In 2005 I had the privilege of helping Fun Publications plan out its first set of Botcon exclusives. Among the characters was a new Decepticon named Flamewar who has gone on to have two more toys made of her. As a special treat I have updated my Flamewar review with new photos including a couple featuring the test shot of Flamewar from the factory!

Sneaky and mean spirited, Skywarp loves playing pranks on his fellow Decepticons. If they try to get back at him, he can teleport up to five miles away! Thanks to the Transformers Collector's Club today BWTF brings you an advance review of "Timelines" Skywarp!
Once a Herald of Unicron, his master's destruction caused him to lose his purpose and some of his power. Still, in fits of madness this Decepticon can call upon dark powers to slice his enemies open with his swords or use his blasts to collapse the Sparks of his enemies!
