Not a fan of shattered glass, but ill be there. SG figures make great generic cybertronian autobots and decepticons. plus I love classics molds.

the big deal is that it's "Classics vs Shattered Glass". Two themes in one! A four-way battle of epic proportions! :D

We shouldn't be surprised. They've been keeping SG alive for the past couple of BotCons and the past couple of TFCC exclusives. A bit surprised it's 2/3rd of the box set, and it counts me out seeing as I don't have any part of the '09 set other than Blurr/SS.

But yeah, let's say they did UM instead of SG UM. Dedicated TF collectors who don't partake in BotCon or people who are unable to go to BotCon would be furious - '07-like drama ensues. I do think it`s cool that we`re getting new Classics renditions of obscure characters (Giga, Metalhawk) at BotCon, but the time in which popular characters get Classics renditions at BotCon is few and far between... that's why we have SG.

Even if it was G1 colors instead of SG, I dont think people would have gone nuts over Ultra Magnus from the Laser Prime mold. Even with a repainted G1 Maketoy Tanker set, it couldnt compete with City Commander which most of us have.

My guess about Soundwave is it will be the Ratchet mold with the WFC generations head to cut costs. If this figure looks good as Soundwave, I might be a little pissed that it is SG instead of G1.

Guess it will help to see the actual figures instead of just two drawings that don't show the whole picture, but I really don't like the Classics Ironhide/Ratchet mold. I was also hoping for a Scourge repaint of Laser Prime (not that HasTak couldn't mass release this in the future).

Will be interesting to see which molds they pick for the other characters, especially Overlord. I'm hoping the choices and color schemes "Wow!" me, but will reserve judgement. My attitudes and collecting habits changed after it was "affordable" to get the original Shattered Glass figures, so getting this set doesn't really complete what I have now.

Wow, I was more excited when I thought this was a GoBots set. I have 0 SG figs and desire 0 SG figs. I'm not sure why they thought any of these would be a 'must have' (maybe the total lack of any official 'Classics' Soundwave?).

As stated above, City Commander > repaint G2 Prime as Magnus (by far). As for Soundwave, I have my Device Label Soundwave with the Reprolabels set, that's plenty good enough for my Classics shelf.

This is certainly great news for SG collectors though, since in previous years they only got 1-2 figs each year for the most part, so this will expand their collections nicely.

It was just weird to read "the war criminal Ultra Magnus."

Overly I am not impressed. I'm thinking about canceling my hotel reservation and just ordering the Iacon package. I guess the Hall of Fame might decide for me...

Any idea when registration for the packages start? February probably?

It does seem as though BotCon is running out of ideas. I could be wrong, I'm not saying I'm right, but as time goes on, they go into ideas I would think aren't all that enticing.

Then, I'm proven wrong with sets like the Animated group from this year. Still, not once have they had anything that made me want to attend, other than the Seekers the one year and I still refused.

I've never cared about "tha 'con". Probably never will. *shrugs* You'd think I would, it's just... well, my give a damn's busted.

Postby dinogeist » Sun Dec 25, 2011 2:09 am

here's my guesses on what molds the 6 announced botcon 2012 figures in this thread will use:

(1) SG Evil utra magnus. this will use the RTS G-2 Laser prime deluxe toy.

(2)SG heroic Soundwave,this will use the classics 2.0 deluxe ratchet/ironhide mold

(3)SG Evil tracks,this will use the generations or rts tracks deluxe mold

(4)SG Heroic treadshot,this will use the WFC Megatron deluxe toy or the HFTD bludgeon voyager size mold or the classics 1.0 deluxe sized megatron toy mold.

(5)classics metalhawk,this will use the Generations skyshadow/thunderhawk deluxe toy mold.

(6)classics overlord,this will obviously use a voyager sized toy mold from either,Animated,HFTD or from RTS. It won't be 2 toys merging to form a bigger robot mode. my guesses are as follows: I THINK THE ANIMATED VOYAGER SIZED BLITZWING TOY STANDS THE BEST CHANCE OF GETTING TURNED INTO OVERLORD. Because animated blitzwing is a tripple changer,it has a jet & tank mode.

Personally,IMHO, if hasbro cared or was smart enough they would have created their own masterforce styled toy years ago. using 2 voyagers from the energon autobots voyager size class. energon voyager sized jetfire colored black with a new head would have made a decent black jet half for overlord. the energon voyager sized cliffjumper toy modified with as a tank by replacing parts & adding a tank turrent part,with a new head. then combine the tank & jet to form overlord.

I never really got it myself. The idea seemed neat, but they just never did it in a way that interested me.
It might have been neat if they did megatron in optimus colors, and vice versa. A Black Rodimus, like, seriously what's the big deal? Then they used some armada molds, and that didn't interest me at all.
Like Dinobots and constructicon swap colors, and then cars with the seekers colors and seekers with car colors. This would have been neat to me.

well im gonna guess that Soundwave is going to be the classics ironhide mold, magnus is RTS G2 prime, tracks is tracks, and the others probably wont be anything special either. better than last years set but still lame, think they're running out of ideas or they just like taking the easy way out.
