BotCon 2012 Octopunch Image

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Some interesting images have surfaced over on ACToyss that appear to be the rumored BotCon 2012 attendee only add-on figure Octopunch. As you can see in the images mirrored below the figure is a repaint of HFTD Voyager Sea Spray in G1 Octopunch's Pretender shell colors with tentacle deco. The figure is packaged the familiar convention style baggy labeled BotCon 2012. This is consistent with the list of potential BotCon 2012 figures we published earlier, which stated this figure will also feature a new head mold.

He could be much nicer than I thought when I first originally heard of him, it looks good from what we can see in the pics

I think it's hilarious that we're seeing a convention exclusive before all the box set figures have been fully revealed.

Looks like a nice figure.

New headsculpt for Octopunch? If they were repainting PCC Undertow, they wouldn't even need one!

Here's hoping they also give him a trident.

If you get creative you can make a trident out of Energon weapons

I like the Seaspray mold, but it's just hard for me to see it as anyone other than Seaspray, even if it does have a new head sculpt. So I guess that means I'm not interested. Now...bring on those SG Junkions dammit!!!

Also...is it just me, or does that Decepticon symbol look red on the first two pictures. Is this going to be SG Octopunch?

Nope, Classics. It just looks red because of the blue background color combined with the baggy,

I dunno dude, that symbol looks pretty red to me, especially when you see how it contrasts with the purple on the actual figure. I mean, it could be possible. When you look at the rumor thread, it never said anything about Treadshot being SG Treadshot.

Are we absolutely certain that this is classics and not SG Octopunch?

Yeah, but the BotCon 2012 Brochure itself did.

Except the list specifically said "SG" with Swindle and the Junkions, but not with Octopunch. And we already knew that Treadshot was SG from the brochure.

Im good with this. If you flip back his boosters it gives him a new look as they resemble oxygen tanks on his back. Then give him PE ratbat as a tridant and he no longer looks like seaspray.

Now lets hope they get the head right and dont have a lightbulb looking helmet or that ugly squid face. I want the robot head but I doubt we will be that lucky.

Or just give him Terradive's trident :grin:

Also, if they paint Sea Spray/Deep Dive's waist area correctly, it could be made to look "skull-ish" like the original. Since they went far enough to paint ducks...er, I mean...tentacles, I don't see why they couldn't go the extra mile. 8)
