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.

Stay tuned to Tformers.com for more details as they are made available. Your best resource for all the Transformers news and community every day.

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

Just saw pictures of [url=" (link) he actually looks decent. Probably the most decent out of all of them

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. 
11:09 pm

I think the Voyager Megatron mold would make a better Treadshot than Megatron himself.  
10:12 pm

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

Botcon.com has posted the announcement today that Scott McNeil will be attending as a guest at Botcon 2016 in Louisville. While a complete listing of Scott's voice roles would occupy more space than the observable universe, naturally he's most relevant for his work on Beast Wars with four major characters to his name - and one minor role that happens to be fairly important to this year's exclusive box set: Tripredacus Council member Cicadacon. This will be Scott's seventh Botcon appearance.
Fun Publications has released the brochure for Botcon 2016, taking place in early April in Lexington, Kentucky. As such we now have the pricing info for the various convention packages, featuring a primus Package set at $399 - a reduction from the cost of 2015's box set. As well we now know what form the tour events will take, as well as some updated policy related in the brochure that everyone should make sure to be aware of. Keep reading for all the details!
The trademark-watchers over at Transformers@The Moon have posted a curious piece of news this morning: Hasbro has filed a trademark with the US Patent Office for the name "Cybertron Con," which is the name of the official Transformers convention in Asia. It's far too early to tell whether this means a name change for BotCon, a new convention, or simply a "defensive" trademark so no fan group can take it in the US, but at any rate, it's an interesting development! Keep reading for a link to the original story.
Via their social media channels, Fun Publications has revealed which of the three Combiner Wars Voyager body-types will be used for the fifth member of next year's boxset. General Sea Clamp will find himself embodied in Silverbolt - or at least, one of two variations. With no specific alt mode attributes visible in this teaser art, it's unclear if it will be Silverbolt specifically, or the retool as Scattershot. That will have to wait for the actual mockup reveal, due tomorrow. Meanwhile, click through for the art, taking us back to a better time in Transformers.
Botcon.com has been updated with the fourth reveal of the 2016 boxset's exclusives. As indicated in yesterday's art reveal, the newest figure is Cicadacon, a straight red and silver recolor of Aerialbot Skydive. With five new heads having been noted for this set of toys, that confirms the combined form will have a unique headsculpt. And this leaves us with just the torso remaining to be revealed as most likely General Sea Clamp, and so the wait begins to see which Voyager mold they've colored red and silver! Keep reading for the Cicadacon mockup image.
