So SG Prime gets resurrected? Wow, color me surprised. And I have a feeling I'm in the minority with this. :lol:

Wait...

Hold it! What's that rubsign doing there? Is that another one of those KO's?

Unexpected. I certainly don't have any need for it. Maybe I can find a way to repurpose it or something.

So they're doing SG Prime...AGAIN? Let me get this straight, they're reusing a character, giving him the same mold as another figure in the set, and haven't even bothered to change his colors (since apparently he's being ressurected). That's...pretty lame. Especially since the Classics Prime mold is leagues better than the RTS Prime mold.

This will probably only appeal to the fans who don't have the original SG Prime. I have the KOLD Double Shattered Glass Prime figure and it works just fine in my small SG collection. This seems like a waste of time to me.

Bring on the SG Junkions in Insecticon colors dammit!

Well, if they have the mold available to them, they may as well make it a new SG Prime. It's good for people who don't have SG Prime and don't want a KO of it.

I hope this is a custom. We already have SG Prime in a better mold! I'd rather have a new mold or character, but oh well.

I'm pretty sure Octopunch is the freebie for this year. If this is part of a souvenir set I'll be surprised.

I think people who want SG Prime want the Classics version; I'd rather buy (and do own) a KO of that figure than get a new version of SG Prime.

Now, if they wanted to do a Nemesis, I'd be down for it even though I'm not a big fan of the mold. With SG Ultra Magnus utilizing this mold, I just don't think another SG is necessary.

Voyager figures aren't the freebie figs. Whichever the freebie fig will be, it'll be a deluxe figure.

I honestly believe this is fake. Octopuch looks more legit than this does.

That Autobot symbol looks....off somehow. I'm guessing it's fake too.

To me, the tell tale sign of fake is the rubsign on the roof of the cab. Since when has BotCon reinstated them?
Re: Botcon 2012 - Shattered Glass G2 Prime! (1358032)

Another thing that gives away that it's a fake, THE RUB SIGN. If this were an actual botcon figure it wouldn't have one on the roof. Ultra Magnus doesn't have one on his roof.

Edit: ninja'd by the post above

I better set aside $90-$160 just in case. After market prices are gonna be killer and if that is real, I don't want to be unprepared.

I don't care about the legitimacy of the thing, it's still a better paint job than the fugly black/blue/red version of the original mainstream release. I hope that whoever came up with that scheme got flogged publicly.

Although I would have preferred that this one had the logo on the hood done in the SG colors rather than white. That would at least have made it more believable.

It's a purple Autobot logo, what more do you want? Almost all insignia for transformers have a white outline. Seriously, where have you been to not know that?

It's only a white outline, that's the problem. It's not filled in with a different shade of purple.

Did the original SG Prime have a purple Autobot logo that was a different shade than the actual figure?
