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

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
