While we do not have any photo evidence yet, a fan did recieve the box and has posted his thoughts on its contents (found below) along with the identity of the mystery figure. Shattered Glass is one of the biggest storylines and themes ever developped by Fun Pub so they have chosen to end it with SG Starscream, using the unite Warriors Starscream mold. Here are the words below by PortalTron of Allspark, followed by images of Toxitron in combined Wreckage form found on the Facebook page for Pete's Robot Convention.

A few thoughts and a major spoiler for the mystery figure.

Counterpunch looks amazing. That is all I can say for him.

Toxitron looks like an odd faded shade of yellowish-green. It's very cool looking. The head is a little different than I imagined, but it looks amazing.

Lastly, the Mystery figure is SG Starscream! He looks fantastic and I love this figure. Although he comes with a translucent HFG, he doesn't seem to be made of translucent plastic. Which is really nice.

All in all, this has been a really fantastic line. A really good note to end on as well.

Interesting...well I can still make that work. I'll have SG SS be the right leg of Wreckage (rather than Bluestreak)

...and Bluestreak will complete my Optimus Maximus (BC Prime, Alpha Bravo Right Arm, Rook Left Arm, Bluestreak Right Leg, Smokescreen Left Leg)

Everybody else probably loves SG starscream, but I'm a little disappointed since he's not going to have a spot in my collection (SG is a little too niche for me).

I'm guessing it kinda looks like the SG Starscream who was seen in the universe that was a SG version of the G1 cartoon universe, which was shown in the bonus 2-page Transformers comic included in the Diamond Edition of the G.I.JoeCon 2016 comic.

Shame they just didn't go with regular Starscream. Even those who bought the Grand Galvatron set are stuck with the more fragile ghost version.

Aww...

I loved the SG Comcept, but a one-off combiner kimb is not what I want, nit when we had potential redecos to go with Bluestreak like Sideswipe or Hoist. I guess its a nice homage to one of Botcon's biggest and 2nd best known (for good or ill) storylines.

He's not more fragile than the others. One of the wings is flimsier and comes off easily (not as easily as Hotspot's chest though) but he doesnt feel more fragile.

Not sure how I feel about SG Starscream. I don't own any other SG figures and he really clashes with the rest of the G1/BW characters. Would have much, much preferred a straight G1 Starscream or even an Action Master SS. SS in Jetfire's colors just doesn't do it for me. I'll have to see the figure first, but maybe I can repurpose him as an upgraded R-Blade. :-?

Yeah, I'm not surprised they went with the Seeker head, that was basically inevitable (as much as I would have loved a Universe Sunstorm from UW Thrust).

I haven't really looked into SG stuff (though I should probably get on it), so I can't say much about Shatterscream as a character, and I can't comment on the toy 'til I see it. That said, having one SG guy in the scramble pool makes him feel like a bit of an orphan to me. All the other factions have enough for a full combiner (except the Maximals, but they can still pull together Magnaboss if they cheat and use stickers). It feels a little weird.

That said, he's an extra. Toxitron and Counterpunch are what I put down money for, and what I see of them so far is to my liking.

I will more than gladly take a Shattered Glass Starscream off of someone's hands should they decide he is not for them. Shattered Glass is my THING!!!

That sounds like the setup for a joke. Two not-quite-Starscreams walk into Maccadam's...

Anyone know where I can get properly-scaled barstools? Because now I almost want to do this for realsies.

Such a hodgepodge of characters and weapons, I love it! FoC Ruination looks more cohesive (thanks in part to the deco and Combaticon molds), but Wreckage is just plain messy, especially his weapons.

I'm with you. I love how all the different guns, even the HFG, have been mixed around. But I will be adding my Toxitron to my Stunticon collection, not my Wreckers.

That's Toxitron's own toxic acid that oozes and secretes from his body.

Physically, he's kinda like Meltdown from Transformers Animated. You try to touch him, you gonna get BURNED! :twisted: :KREMZEEK:
