TRANSFORMERS BOTCON Lift-Ticket and Burnout Review

From the Transformers convention Botcon 2015 comes a set of Diaclone inspired exclusives: Lift-Ticket and Burnout. Based on Hoist and Skids from the Classics/Thrilling 30 line, these repainted characters are an homage to the origins of the Transformers. Captain Kyle reviews them to see just how cool they are.

G1 Hoist and Skids were Autobots based on the Diaclone line and some variations of the toys were released in different colors. Lift-Ticket is in the original red color from the Diaclone line and Burnout is a black version of the Skids mold. Though these are based on the Classics molds, Botcon did an excellent job paying homage to the Diaclone line with their Diaclone Explosion series.
