Just like almost every year in the past, the BotCon exclusive figures are starting to slip out of factories and onto auction sites prior to the event. Thanks to this TaoBao auction we get our first in-hand image of Gigatron (Overlord). This "Invasion" boxset figure makes use of the HFTD Voyager Bludgeon mold with a new head, which unfortunately cannot be seen in the is auction since the figure is only shown in tank mode. Take a look at the non photoshopped figure in vehicle mode below.

Thanks to an ebay auction we now have robot-mode images of the upcoming BotCon exclusive Octopunch.
Octopunch is based on the G1 Pretender of the same name, as you can see he's based on the HFTD Seaspray mold, and does not feature a new head. Oh and do you notice how the faction symbol is red, which means he's Shattered Glass? Well, congrats to those who spotted that back with the first image we saw of him.
You can click any of the following images to get to the original auction.

Some interesting images have surfaced over on ACToys 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.
