The official BotCon 2012 page has updated with the reveal of the "Heroic Decepticon" Soundwave. This is the third figure revealed behind Classics Gigatron and the Evil Autobot Tracks in the "Invasion" box set.

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.

Well, the headband is good news I guess. Hopefully they won't charge an arm and a leg.

Ugh. I can't stand that head mold. He's been depicted so well in the art too...

Oh well, I guess I'll stick with Music Label white Soundwave

Just added to the news that they did tweaked the head mold so Soundwave can look straight ahead.

The head looks terrible. So far, there isn't a toy that has been revealed that is "must have" IMO.

Weird that a person like me, who is not a fan of movie toys, would (and have) purchased RotF/DotM deluxes that were leagues better then this.

I'm kinda pissed they didn't reveal Treadshot, as he's been screwing with our brains lately, while Soundwave here was obvious.

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.

OMG, Epic Fail. When is the Club going to start listening to the real collectors and not the few nerds that work for them(and I know a few from back in the early to mid 90's)that think they rule the roost on knowing ALL things Transformers?? Seriously these toys are not that great this year. Not to mention the Con is backed by Hasbro, we need actual new molds or at least 1 new mold per show. The laziness involved is disgusting. And Ive bought all the sets since there 1st year in, and now when times are tough economically here in the states these jerkoffs are charging $340 to MEMBERS just for the box set alone!!! And that doesnt include the near $30 they will charge to ship it. Which means this set will run close to $400 even IF your a member!! IDK, I guess Im just pissed off but its still rape. They are raping us on these every year. Hell just to get the 3 bagged sets and the lone bagged toy every year runs you another $350-600 on Ebay after the Con. and thats if you get a decent deal.

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??

This is getting to be a bit pathetic. I think Shattered Glass is meeting its end. And good riddance.

Head mold is ugly, and that mold in general is terrible. They should have used the Perceptor mold....

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.

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.
