BotCon 2012 Shattered Glass Heroic Decepticon Soundwave Unveiled; Headband Sold Separately

By Peter Van on Tuesday, January 03, 2012



The reveal of the BotCon 2012 convention exclusive set continues! Fun Publications has just revealed the Shattered Glass Heroic Decepticon Soundwave figure.

As expected, the figure uses the Transformers Reveal the Shield Ironhide mold with a brand-new head.


The character was first teased in a teaser poster for the convention.

The all-white vehicle mode gives way to spots of blue in the top of the head, forearms, and the feet.

The vehicle also sports Zartan's face on the driver and passenger side doors (see right).

Fun Publications also notes that they worked with the sculptor to ensure that the head issues have been fixed.

For those who were intrigued by the headband in the aforementioned poster, a headband will be available, but will be sold separately at the club store at an undetermined time and for an unknown price.

Fun Publications explains that the price of molding the piece onto the actual figure would have been too costly.

For all of the news on the BotCon 2012 exclusive figures, head over to our checklist.

BotCon 2012 takes place in Fort Worth, Texas from April 26 - 29, 2012.

Armada Sideswipe had a great vehicle mode!

Welp, I was expecting a homage to AM Treadshot and instead we get TFU Treadshot in AEC Sideswipes colors. I suppose it works as he's SG and the mold was a redeco SS... It's just a little odd. Nice looking toy either way.

Nah the last Armada Sideswipe I had I tossed in the trash, It wasn't even worth the $3 I paid for it on clearance back then. And never bothered to replace it, although I was tempted to smash it and send it to Hasbro demanding my money back for making such a POS of a toy

Not bad, but not what I would expect from a SG Treadshot. Part of the fun of the Shateredverse is familiar characters in colors that wouldn't normally be associated with their faction. Even in proper colors I couldn't tell you this was Treadshot. What this is is Generations Armada Sideswi... read more

The Tracks so far is the only one I kind of like, simply because it can double for another established character, I doubt we'll see all 3 Junkions at Botcon, there's a rumor that they can't use the head for Scrapheap, I would like to see them though in the Black Purple and Yellow Insecti... read more

Generations Warpath for Treadshot and also as Gutcruncher as the freebie or add on. I betcha.

I think the Voyager Megatron mold would make a better Treadshot than Megatron himself.

They probably can't use the WFC Soundwave mold because I imagine we'll get a redeco of the same mold when Fall of Cybertron hits shelves this year. If there is a plan for that. Which I hope there is, but not for repaints. Allthough Hasbro could have just gave a blanketed "No" as ju... read more

The fifth figure for the Botcon 2015 boxset has proven to be what many have speculated, the Pretender Oilmaster. The inner robot is represented by a recolor of Generations Legends Swerve with its partner Targetmaster figure. The Pretender shell based on a canceled G1 concept appears to be a fully new piece made for this set which can hold both robots. Keep reading for screencaps, the embedded video and more!
Northwest Fan Ventures has announced their second annual Cybertronian Festival! Taking place August 22nd this year in Kent, Washington, the single-day event is related to CybCon, the long-running but defunct convention that ran for thirteen years.

The Botcon website has been updated with details about the special package add-on that will allow pre-registrants the opportunity to meet Frank Welker. The VIP Pass will cost $200, in addition to a required Primus Package or Golden Ticket. Those who purchase the pass will be allowed one autograph, a professional photo with Mr. Welker on Saturday afternoon, and exclusive art print and pin, and priority seating at his panel. This may partly be to offset his appearance costs, but probably provokes some sticker shock anyway. Keep reading and tell us what you think!
Not long after the reveal video was posted and word spread around about the contents of egg number 4, the Botcon Twitter was updated with a two panel preview from this year's convention comic book. Featuring Packrat along with the freshly premiered Megatron, we may not be able to gather any story from this isolated sample, but we can at least enjoy the robot lineart stylings of Matt Frank. Click through and check it out!
Fun Publications has just posted their latest video reveal, showing off the fourth of five boxset toys for this year's Botcon. As basically everyone had figured out already, "The Boss" is a Dark of The Moon inspired Megatron using the Arms Micron Silas Breakdown mold. While the video shows a new head sculpt fusing movie and G1 styles, and three included Arms Microns, no mention is made of the panel with Silas himself sculpted in to it. We have screencaps and the video embedded, so keep reading!
