Wow! That looks MUCH better than before. These pics justify a purchase of it for me.

Yeah....what is going on with those ducks! They should have made the windows blue and left it at that. At least the windows are in the same vicinity as the tubes on the original.

'sigh'.....Failure.....IMO :roll:

EDIT: and yes.....clearly they are not meant to be ducks but they SURE AS HELL LOOK LIKE DUCKS!

Looks good, I like it. But if it is indeed meant to be shattered glass, shouldnt it be SG Seaspray AKA Octopunch ??? Kinda like SG Tracks AKA Road Rage ???

Cuz there's already a SG Seaspray (whose design is repurposed from movie Storm Surge).

He definitely looks more Classics than Shattered Glass, I think Deep Dive looks the best of the three.
Also think they should have made the blue paint symmetrical on the abdomen

Well, there are a handful of SG characters who, instead of having familiar bodies with reverse colors, have different bodies with familiar colors. Galvatron, Jazz, Alpha Trion, etc.

Personally,this botcon 2012 octopunch is the worst colored of the trio.

I sincerly doubt the rumored octopunch new head sculpt is gonna save this figure being all kinds of horrible.

What are you talking about? This is the final product. These images clearly show that there is no new headsculpt.

I see your point, but for me at least, the use of alternate colors sticks out more as a SG theme than the use of a previously unused alt mode. Using the base colors of a character with a new alt mode is done on a regular basis with the onset of many new lines. In the end though I really don't care, aren't too many SG figures I like anyway.

I think it's hilarious that we're seeing a convention exclusive before all the box set figures have been fully revealed.

We've already seen Metalhawk in the BotCon registration.

Since there are more pictures of the actual toy to talk about, I made a new thread in the Scratch Build Forum for the helmet I'm working on. Tell me what you think!

I think I'm just going to slap some reprolabels on him and call him Classics.

so why did they decide to use the shell design for the figure instead of using the actual robot?

Because that's the most iconic part of him, plus all Pretender homages have been based off of the shell.
