Botcon has confirmed via twitter what many have hoped for since seeing the teaser art for this figure. There will be a headband available for sale in the club store at Botcon. They go on to say that there was no way to mold the headband onto the head to do it justice. Also confirmed via twitter that there have been tweaks to the head mold so Soundwave can look straight ahead. Please enjoy the pics mirrored below or at the Botcon 2012 website.

I actually like all the molds. Gogatron's design kinda reminds me of the shape of the human Giga, I need a Road Rage, and here, the large head gives him a bigger "rocker" look. I don't like the bumper stickers too much though.

And the after market of these "Shattered Glass" toys blows!!! Maybe if Hasbro was cool enough to make some characters and throw them in a Universe line it would help the value of these immensely. But who am I kidding its a very good idea, so Hasbro wont do it! Screw the collector right??

It was a forced choice though, as he had the SUV form in fiction for years now. Since 2009 to be exact.

That is hard to define...everyone thinks they are "real" collectors and everyone who disagrees with them are not.
Cybershark wrote:we need actual new molds or at least 1 new mold per show.
I don't think this is a realistic expectation. A new mold is a bit much.

You can't really blame the BotCon d00ds or Hasbro for how much people charge on Ebay.
