Toy Review Update: "Timelines" Botcon 2005 exclusive Flamewar

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!
