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.

Toy News: Botcon 2015 Surprise Egg Reveal #5 - The Bounty Hunter!

in Botcon, Decepticon, News, Timelines

Fun Publications has unleashed their final Botcon boxed reveal. When the final egg is opened, it starts with nothing...mostly because it can't fit in the egg!

The true reveal is Oilmaster, a redeco of "Generations" Swerve along with a Micromaster form that he controls in battle! However, the true surprise is what Oilmaster comes with! Check after video for my thoughts.
