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.

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)

It's not a red symbol, just bad lighting/camera. I love the idea of adding another pretender to the Classics list but I don't feel this mold suits Octopunch. Octopunches needs a diving helmet, tentacles in robot mode, and lots of purple. Octopunch ought to be a submarine.

But there aren't any submarines so Seaspray will have to do. Plus, I've been using Seaspray as a Masterpiece all thins time instead of a Classics figure so as far as I'm concerned, it's all good.

My biggest complaint with most of the reveals isn't execution(save Soundwave), it's mold choice. I'm not a big fan of the Thunderwing mold or the ROTF Bludgeon. Unfortunately, HFTD Seaspray isn't a big one for me either. But, sometimes the character makes all the difference so I'll wait until the head sculpt is revealed.

I'm excited about this but also highly skeptical. Either way i'll never own it so in the big scheme of things.......it doesn't matter i guess. :roll:

My favourite thing about Octopunch is the ugliness of his Pretender shell. Not to mention his crab mode. Neither of these qualities will be present. The only thing vaguely Octopunch is the paint apps. So it's not really that fun of a homage to me. I like that he's received a little attention though. That's a positive.

IMHO,The Botcon 2012 octopunch colors that i can see in alt mode are way too similar to HFTD seaspray's colors. the white is still their,the aqua green color is still this. IT'S Botcon deathsauras all over again,with TFCC picking almost similar colors of RID Megatron & tweaking the color shades a bit & adding different/more highlights colors/designs.

I wasn't gonna buy this thing,but I had high hopes it was gonna look drastically different in colors than HFTD Seaspray.

IMHO,I'd rate this a 0 out of 10.

I thought about Terradives trident and tried it out. It's too skinny to fit Seasprays voyager sized open hands and is on the short side for a voyager. But ratbat seems to work.
