Courtesy of D-Drive, who has acquired the new Timelines #8: Termination comic, we now have a relatively big hint at what the Botcon 2014 theme will be.
Cybertron Cannonball’s flag is shown, hinting that at least part of the theme will have to do with: pirates! A small text blurb is also shown, possibly narrated by Cannonball himself. Check it out in the attached image of the page in question!
So, what exactly could this set consist of? Could it tie in with Thundertron and his Star Seekers – a group which Cannonball was a part of in the Exiles novel? Or perhaps it’s simply focusing on Cannonball’s merry band of space pirates in the Cybertron cartoon continuity itself – the tales of which were previously chronicled in the TFCC text story “The Dark Heart of Sandokan”?
Sound off on what you think about this revelation in the discussion thread!
UPDATE: Looking over the Club’s Twitter, it appears that the set will only be 50% pirate-themed. What exactly might the other half be? We’ll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime, speculate away in the thread!
