What they did was put all Autobots on the left and all Decepticons on the right. I'm guessing that the SG versions are gonna be teaming up with the wrong sides at first to get the two good factions to kill each other, leaving both evil factions to reign supreme 9and then double cross each other later).

If you've got either a Primus package or an Iacon package, you'll get it. ;)

As much as I like SG... eh, the box is okay. Maybe my standards are too high, but I was kind of expecting something a bit more, well, epic. This has totally got me psyched for the comic though :D

I think the designer was going for the bots on the left, and cons on the right. The only problem is that they're shattered glass. Which means Metalhawk and Overlord should switch places . :lol:

Is that regular Tracks in the background? And who under SG Tracks' foot?

Well, perhaps the two evil factions try to fool the two good factions into killing each other.

Looks more like SG Blurr and Classics Sideswipe to me.

Yeah, he does look a little stressed. Some nice lubricant to keep things running smoothly and a visit to 4chan for information/help should do him wonders.

I think the "Invasion" on the boxart confirms that this set was originally intended for 2011, not 2012.

In 2010, they launched the BotCon 2011 site and had a teaser that said "The Invasion has begun!"
