IMHO,I don't think the Classics 2.0 deluxe toy mold will be used for botcon 2011 overlord nor metalhawk.

Because the classics cyclonus toy can't get a newer 100% head sculpt on it. due to the robot ears connecting around the jet nose in jet mode.

IMHO,If botcon 2011 uses the classics cyclonus mold,it can't have a new head. it'll just be a repaint with no remolded parts.

They can shape the new head to fit into the nosecone slots or even fit around them. Or they can just remold the nosecone slots themselves to accommodate a new head.

That custom Metalhawk from Cyclonus that was shown here has a new head that fits around the nosecone slots without difficulty.

Phew, that custom is legit. If that's potentially what will be in the set, then lucky for those attending!

Jesse Wittenrich has updated his deviantART account with both pieces of BotCon 2012 promotional art that we've seen so far, the shadowy Shattered Glass Evil Ultra Magnus teaser and the full color version that also features Shattered Glass Heroic Soundwave. Check out the nice clear versions of the art below.

I keep going to the main page and thinking there's no new news, and then realising this has floated to the surface again.

Overlord and Metalhawk could be cool, but I'd hope that they still eventually might receive new scuplts in a main line. Overlord anyway, after his awesome appearance in LSOTW.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Because the TMNT are the exact opposite of G1 Soundwave's personality. Which is the point behind SG.
