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.

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 Winter Wonderfest 2016 is over, but it certainly didn't go without some good stuff to show. In the time since we reported last night, more photos have been posted from the event showing more detail on Masterpiece Optimus Primal, such as the furry appearance derived entirely through paint apps. We also have more detail shots of Blast Off and the Combaticons, including another look at their color promo poster, and new tonight we have showings from Prime 1 Studios with an array of movie-inspired statues, and another appearance of Heroes of Steel Optimus. Click through to see it all, along with a full list of photo credits!
In the David Kaye-voiced promo video we reported on a short time ago, between the series of slides of character art for the Botcon 2016 box set exclusives and the date and location slide for Botcon, an interesting bit of art was briefly seen. This quick image depicted Megatron, but with features of the visible portion of the body matching original RID Megatron/Car Robots Gigatron. In a recent interview, Pete Sinclair revealed that the "centerpiece" of the souvenir assortment would be something everyone would want to get their hands on. So does this tell us why? See the image and more details below!
Yesterday we got a look at packaging art for the box set. Today via Twitter came the reveal of the individual character art for the Predacon combiner team. As with the box itself, this art is by Marcelo Matere and hews very closely to the style of retail Combiner Wars merchandise. Along with this is a new image of Ravage, depicting the current production sample, which should be a good indicator of the final actual colors of the toy. Finally, another e-mail went out today with a few more updates, including the reveal of an exclusive toy only for Golden Ticket registrants. Read on for details!
The BotCon Twitter has posted an image of the Predacus package art! It's very much in keeping with the rest of the boxart for the Combiner Wars giftsets, both because of its matching trade dress and also because Combiner Wars artist Marcelo Matere provided the artwork. IDW's Josh Perez provided color for the piece - keep reading to check it out!
Cybercast host G1 Hexatron has posted a couple new images from the BotCon 2016 figure set to Facebook! Today we have new looks at Ravage, Cicadacon, and Ramhorn in their vehicle modes, and our first look at the official art for Ram Horn. Looks pretty good! Keep reading to have a look for yourself.
