BotCon 2011: Animated Dead Endon January 28, 2011 at 12:30 am
Man, earliest BotCon reveal ever, or what? Sure feels like it.
The theme for this year’s BotCon convention figure set has been revealed, and everything’s coming up Animated. You thought it was all over, didn’t you? Ha! Animated will never die! It’s like the bad guy in the horror film who always springs up that one last time after you thought he was dead, except in this case instead of a serial murderer or whatever, it’s a beautiful person of the gender of your choice who will have sex with you all night long.
It looks like the box set is going to be strictly Animated-style Stunticons, and the first one we get to see is Dead End, who’s a redeco of Animated Jazz. He is, according to Animated character designer Derrick Wyatt, who was responsible for helping put this together, a “depressingly dour beat poet.” Which is pretty awesome. And explains the facial hair he’s rocking.
Guess we’ll be seeing Motormaster, Drag Strip, Wildrider, and Breakdown some time soon. (Man, we got a Breakdown last year, too…) Now we get to speculate who’s going to get made from whom.
