And with scant days remaining before Botcon, we have now seen all of the figures that will be there.

lol China...

Good shit.

Heh, who'd have thought we'd get Double Punch? Probably means that the mold is in use and a "Generations" Scorponok in G1 colors is finally coming.

Double Punch came out as expected. Say, didn't some souvenir sets have new heads of their own? I know Rapido has a new one, I wonder if any of the rest did... Let me count:

2005
3: Ironhide/Ratchet, Chromia/Flareup, Deathsaurus

2006
3: Optimus Primal, Cheetor/Tigatron, Megatron

2007
3: Thrust (wings), Dreadwing, Alpha Trion

2008
4: Goldbug, Blurr, Jazz, Megatron

2009
4: Kup, Flak, Scourge/Sweeps, Razorclaw

2010
4 (so far): Clench, Sky-Byte, Breakdown, Rapido

Maybe we'll get a fifth new retool?

Double Punch looks ridiculously awesome and G2 colors normally aren't my thing. This years figures have won me over. Looks like my Classics display will have a very loud section. :lol: Oh, and Clench? Lookin' real good baby.

I don't get it...
Everybody is talking about Double Punch and Slicer...
GREAT! I agree!
But...
The theme is G2 and both of them are G1.

So... my question is: will there be classics as well as G2 and S(hattered)G(lass) or, pray tell, are these two not Double Punch and Slicer but simple SG Wheeljack and SG Scorponok?
Think about it... :grin:

You know who else isn't G2 for this years figures? Nearly all of them. I don't care what generation or universe they fit into. I'm getting two of each if they fit two universes. That's me though.

The last two I've never seen or heard of before. Have they been reported? If so, I may have missed it. If we did report it, can someone give me a link to them? :lol:

The regular tail, the long orange cockpit is a giveaway.

For the sake of simplicity, some European-exclusive G1 figures get thrown into G2 by some fans, especially when they have the bright neon coloring G2 is known/notorious for. And they *are* Slicer and Double Punch. As SG Fortress Maximus had G1 Scorponok's colors in fiction, it's safe to assume the reverse is true for SG Scorponok.

If you want to be nitpicky:

Breakdown: G2 deco
Clench: EU exclusive G1 into G2, G1 name
Streetstar (Streetwise): G2 deco
Spark: EU exclusive G1 into G2, G2 name
Sky-Byte: Robots in Disguise

Slicer: G1 EU exclusive
Rapido: G1 into G2
Scorch: G1 EU exclusive
Double Punch: G1 EU exclusive
"BWX Megatron repaint": ???
Sharkticon: G1

Mind you, the Souvenir set do not necessarily follow the main theme. If anything, it's "anything released between when the first US line ended and Beast Wars"

Is that the Energon Downshift mold for Slicer?

I really wanted to see Classics Sideswipe repainted in G2 colors.

There's no requirement that SG is a colorswap. SG Optimus and SG Megatron didn't color swap. SG Grimlock is Trypticon colors. Botcon probably did this so that figures can double as both SG and G2 Redux figures.

SG Wheeljack / Slicer
SG Scorponok / Double Punch
SG Ravage / Glit

Since we're most likely getting three souvenir sets this year no-one should complain if one of them doesn't fit the theme whereas this year it looks like the third set fits two themes.

You're forgetting one thing: in SG the faction symbols have their colors switched: Autobot is purple and Decepticon is red. Until we see the robot modes with the faction symbols I'm sticking with my theory. Ravage is confirmed to be SG btw: red 'Con symbol.

Loving that Double Punch. Some how the colors just work on Scorponok.

Yup, that's Energon Downshift

Casscis Sideswipe/ Sunstreaker mold is repainted into G2 colors for the Botcon set. G2 Breakdown to be exact.

Though it would be ice to see a black Sideswipe some time.

Is it going to be Slicer or SG Wheeljack. SGRavage has been tweeting that WheelJack just went thru a portal.
- ravagekitteh

that is some strange machinery!!! ... !!! 1

what the

wts peeps wts

wheeljack went thru a PORTAL! to where??? uh oh...

guess we should go tell Galvatron?????????????

Seeing we know that SGRavage is being released, it would make sence that he is following Wheeljack to where this years storyline takes place.
