iGear Octopunch On The Way?

It looks like third-party toy group iGear may be following BotCon's lead and repainting/remolding their Seaspray homage, Spray, into Octopunch. Full Metal Hero has received a digibash of Spray with G1 Octopunch's Pretender shell head and colors. Chock it up as rumor for the moment. Image mirrored below.

This is not something I would ever buy, but the head sculpt looks really nice.

I just wish my Spray and Rager would arrive at my doorstep.... Piss on something new, get the items people preordered months ago to them..

Oh and I am not digging this fig..
Instead of repainting old figs, why not attempt a true pretender, with a shell..

I like it more than Spray, but I've never really been a fan of Seaspray anyway. That said, the only reason I could see to get this would be so that Thunderwing doesn't look quite so tiny next to Bludgeon and Skullgrin.

So we're all ignoring the fact that this is just G1 Octopunch's head Photoshopped onto a recoloured version of iGear's original Spray render? Ok, I'll play along. But it's not real.

No. It's been said.

Given how quickly this image has come to light and its Photoshopped nature I'm going to guess its simply a random fan made image. I know iGear are prone to milk a mold of its repaints, but I'd reckon that Octopunch from Sea Spray is too big of a departure from the norm for them.

Yes it's clearly a photoshop job, but FMH's Andy is a reliable source of info. It makes sence for iGear to capitalize on the BotCon hype by repainting their Spray mold into Octopunch.

Very simple photo shop. but it still better than the Botcon version.

Shame people dont do what the guys at Roll Call Roll Out did and make thier own pretender (Bio Armour Kraken).

NO. It doesn't work the same way. HTFD Seaspray actually looks like he's in a diver's suit. This one, I just think their using the idea...
The sad thing is though, in the secondary market, between this one and the botcon repaint, wich one do you think will be cheaper? everything's backwards! 8-}

No point in denying it, if they do this(and I know it's a photoshop mock-up) I will buy it. I think it's actually plausible considering the Nemesis Rager repaint that they have shown. Only makes sense to do repaints(and possibly a remold) to both molds since they came out together. On a different note, is there a release date on iGear Cosmos & what is MW-03?

Considering this will likely be about $20, and the Botcon version will likely be $60+, I may go for this instead. Plus scale of the Botcon one is huge and I'm not sure how it will look with my display.

Half the time the first few pics we see of the Botcon or Club Exclusives are photoshopped. Heck, anyone seen any official Hasbro images of their toys that weren't?

The Botcon version has ducks. This one doesn't. Thus, the Botcon one is superior.

I just looked that up and I can see why people don't go that route. Ignoring the lame Gorn aspect of the Kraken, what you have is a voyager sized brick with a Legends figure stuck in it. It just doesn't fly.

Seaspray works great next to ROTF Bludgeon and since they were on the Mayhem Attack Squad together, I think it should look just fine on display.

Ultimately, I think this was just iGear poking a bit of fun at Fun Pub because they happen to have a Seaspray shipping now. I highly doubt this will ever be a real product.
