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.

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?

Like the colors! Just aesthetically, here they look good. Hopefully just as nice in person. :)

I'm cool with this since my Sea Spray mold has been displaced by iGear's Spray.

At first I saw ducks, then I realized they are tentacles.

And now all I can see is ducks. Thank you.

Anywho, this actually looks better than I was expecting. Good on them :3

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.

If I believed in the Devil and in souls, I would gladly sell my soul to him for this :mrgreen:
But since I don't, I will find a way to get this without going to BotCon, I SWEAR IT!

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.
