I gotta say that these three won the year with Kick-Off being a close second. I love these guys.

I agree, probably one of the few Troop Builder sets that's worth buying more of. Although I'd end up selling off the extra SG Wreck-Gars for the sake of the collective :P

I just noticed that Junkheap now has the visor originally intended for him. The mass market release had the visor that belonged to E-hobby exclusive Scrap Heap. It didn't fit too well and made his "eyes" look strange. The fact that they were painted over didn't help, either. Here, it seems his visor (the clear molded piece) has been fixed for the BotCon release.

Is that Longarm in the group pic? He's the only figure that got my interest this year, will there be a gallery with him?

I find it very interesting that there are many references to the "Hellraiser" series in Wreck-Gars Bio, even his quote is from Hellraiser! You guys sure that this Wreck-Gar is Shattered Glass and not one of Pin-head's cenobites? Ha, ha.

Hadn't been too interested in the Junkions from the initial pictures. Now I want them! Aside from the ones using the Jazz mold, these are probably the best of this year.

I always find the Shattered Glass universe interesting because it sort of pulls away from the established fiction of the free-loving Optimus Prime as leader of the heroic Autobots and the sadistic Megatron leading the domination-dreaming Decepticons. I also like the fact of either switching the colors of another character, reverses it, or using a pre-Transformer color scheme (ex: SG UM using the colors of the pre-Transformer guy). The Junkions switching colors with the Insecticons was a clever move on FP's part. :APPLAUSE:

Longarm's gallery will be posted in the next day or two so that you can all see my sad attempt at painting a Transformer for the first time.

Gigatron's head is nice but HUGE!!! I did a size comparison and his head is bigger then masterpiece Rodimus, Masterpiece Seeker and Masterpiece Grimlock did anyone else realize how big his head is? i think it would look a lot better had they made his head smaller...

I guess that's their way of making up for the tiny head on Counterpunch.

Yup, me too :)
The easiest way to notice, is the handlebars sticking out from behind his head. They are longer and different now :)

Not to be Captain Ungrateful or anything, but I thought a few shots of Longarm in Shockwave mode with the replacement gun-arm accessory to complete the homage would have been a given, as well as side-by-side with Alternators Shockblast/Binaltech Laserwave who is the basis for the homage.

As awesome as the SG Junkions are. I'm just not into the SG thing very much. The real winners of the 2012 exclusives for me are Spinister and Kick-Off(Over).

You're not being ungrateful. Those are legit questions or concerns.

I accidentally left the cannon in the custom class room when I left and didn't realize it until later that night. Haven't had a chance to contact Raven yet for a replacement. If I'm able to get an extra cannon, I'll be sure to update the pictures accordingly.

I would like to do some comparison pictures of that ... maybe in due time. Just trying to get these galleries posted. While Botcon ended for most people 15 or 16 days ago, I've still been working on BotCon stuff non-stop. I've got about 80 hours or so into these 15 galleries during the past 2 weeks. I just need to get them posted at this point. I really want to put BotCon 2012 to bed ... tired of working on BotCon stuff for the past 4 weeks or so (was working on the BotCon 2010 galleries before BotCon 2012).

I'd also like to do comparisons with the original versions of all of these toys (i.e. G1 Overlord, Metalhawk, e-Hobby Road Rage, "Diaclone" Ultra Magnus, Universe Treadshot, G1 Spinister, G1 Octopunch, and Action Master Kick-Off but I just didn't have time to do all of that).

I need to turn my focus back to current toys such as the Transformers Prime figures so that I can get their galleries posted in the next week or two.

More BotCon 2012 galleries: The Bard of Darkmount and Longarm! The Bard of Darkmount is a Shattered Glass universe repaint of Generations Deluxe Darkmount (aka Straxus) that was given away as this year's attendee only freebie figure. Longarm was this year's highly sought after custom class figure. This Reveal the Shield Special Ops Jazz repaint came with a custom G1 Shockwave head and blaster. Unfortunately Seibertron didn't make it out of the class with the custom blaster, with any luck a replacement can be secured and the gallery will of course be updated. This figure pays homage to a couple of different figures from the past. Transformers Animated Longarm Prime, who was actually Shockwave in disguise, and Alternators Shockblast, who shared a similar vehicle mode.

Perhaps when that happens (if not sooner), maybe some additional comparison pics with Alternators Shockblast could be added as well? ;;)

I'm sad that I couldn't get into the customs class, but I'm glad I managed to score a custom painted Jazz at a fraction of what the kit was going for on eBay.

Just sent an email off to Raven to see about getting a replacement cannon.

Hasbro should just sell different character heads so we can customize current figures into whoever we wanted. I would buy bags of Shockwave heads and Classics figures to make Shockwave's clone army.

Quite the Darkmount. That was a gimme, oh well.
Oh, in case you don't know what a gimme is:
In golf, a gimme is a shot that the other players agree can count automatically without actually being played.
When a player has only a very short putt left to play, other players may grant a gimme (i.e. one stroke is counted), but the ball is not actually played. A gimme is a time-saving convention under the tacit assumption that the putt would not have been missed—e.g. when the ball is only a few inches from the hole.

It's a resin Shockwave style cannon that has a ball joint on the end. You had to paint it.

The only figure I want out of all these is shattered glass prime but I wanna take a maketoys battle tanker head and pant it to match because I hate the head that comes on the figure. As far as gigatron goes his head is to blochish for that body it looks funny to me and I can stand metal hawks face. I feel like I'm looking at a dollar store robot and I hate that whole mold to begin with its a horrible transformer with a horrible transformation. Other than that the rest of the figures are ok but not worth that much money IMO

I'd love a Classics Spinister, and whilst the Botcon version is pretty good, it's not enough. I'd get it if it were retail, but can't see me spending ebay money on it. Kick-Off, on the other hand, is amazing. Best repaint of this mold yet. Noticed it in the line-up of the Longarm gallery, and glad it's getting its own. I could see myself spending the extra to have this one.

Shattered Glass Prime didn't really do it for me in the Voyager mold, which I like much better, so this one is just a waste to me. And Ducktopunch is, like Spinister, nowhere near close enough to the character I'd want to get, looks quite nice though.

As much as I want that figure to work, SG Octopunch really needed a remolded head to pull off the character. This just doesn't do it for me.

Actually, looking at the breathing mask, the Sea Spray mold has me wondering. With a few new parts to make the alt mode a starship instead of a hovercraft, could this figure be used for Omega Surpreme? :-?

Not for nothing but this figure sucks as shockwave. And people are charging $1000 for it that's nuts I hope no one is paying that price and it's not so much the body of the figure it's the head and the blaster just looks cheap

Hmm, it would be entirely doable to make him G1 Omega's tank chunk, but I don't know if you could pull off a starship...

Unless of course you mean TFA Omega Supreme, in which case Voyager Seapsray is a dead ringer for it. :)

Myself I still don't understand why people want this Shockwave, through Hasbro means of otherwise, I mean, we're getting a perfectly good Shockwave a few months from now, one that looks all Shockwave and not just the head and arm cannon, so why's there still this need for a wider release of this one? :oops:

I'll answer this because that shockwave is part of the foc game and they want a shockwave based on a classis design even know that the foc one would work because he never had an earth mode

I'm with you there. It looks really nice, and the Jazz toy is a great base for a lot of different characters, but the Shockwave we are getting appears to be a superior representation of the character. I'd rather see Kick-Off get mass released.

How does it being made by ford make it gay? Ford has some insane cars, like the fordGT. I picked the Jag since its signature colour for that car is a very Shockwave looking purple. Large and fast as hell, as well as sort of all but forgotten, sort of in the background, like Shockwave. The Mclaren would have to be for something much more vicious and attention grabbing, like the Fallen, since the car sounds like its from hell.

Jaguars are made by ford lol that's gay he would be a mclaren f1


How does it being made by ford make it gay? Ford has some insane cars, like the fordGT. I picked the Jag since its signature colour for that car is a very Shockwave looking purple.

Lol why so serious the ford gt and maybe the mustang would be the only fords I would buy because the rest are crap. And I do agree with u he shouldn't be an rx-7 not because it's undered powered because it's not 255hp for a 1.3l engine is impressive it's just a girls sports car. And a jaguar is for and older British guy like Austin powers maybe and Austin Martian would have fit better. And a mclaren does not look like its from hell at all those cars a good old fashion real American muscle that scare the crao out of you when the engine roars. A mclaren is a cockpit seater meaning you sit in the center of the car like someing you fly like a jet or spaceship it's fast it's sleek a beast from hell makes noise rips sh#t up fire out the exhaust just a monster like chevell SS or something that would do a wheelie when it took off. Mclaren has precision cuts like a laser and sticks to the road around corners =P~ little to much huh lol

I'm not serious. don't worry.
The xj220 is so not for old guys, come on man, haha. Thing was made to compete with porsches n shiet. Ya, the mclaren is quite precision but it comes off as this demon car coz its just so loud and ruthless, haha. This conversation is so nerdy.
Fair enough though, I could see the fallen as an old Charger or something angry like that. But we all know the fallen should really be a tank and thats it.

Seeing those pics of Shockwave as parts sorted in a styrofoam food tray makes me wish Hasbro had some sort of special offer or something where you could order a disassembled figure like that and put it together yourself.

Like Kre-O but instead of brick figures you put together a real one. I'd find it fun, anyway.

But Hasbro probably would be stopped by their lawyers lest some fool order one for a 3 year old who then promptly chokes to death on the parts.

Or hasbro should mass release it.

(wouldn't be the first time an exclusive got mass released...)

Oh CHMS where art thou?

Hasbro would definately be winning with this as a mass release, they couldn't get it wrong (unless they failed to add the blaster on his left arm)!

For all us Shockwave lovers heres one of my fave versions, Alternator Shockwave (Shockblast)!

Myself I still don't understand why people want this Shockwave, through Hasbro means of otherwise, I mean, we're getting a perfectly good Shockwave a few months from now, one that looks all Shockwave and not just the head and arm cannon, so why's there still this need for a wider release of this one? :oops:

I'll answer this because that shockwave is part of the foc game and they want a shockwave based on a classis design even know that the foc one would work because he never had an earth mode


I'm a lover of Shockwave-iness, so either-or will do me fine. FOC Shockwave is really amazing, and so is this representation, so for me, I could get away with both if I want a Classics Shockwave (and I do want one). DOTM Shockwave, however, just doesn't work as Classics Shockwave.
