    I was against shattered glass prime as the attendee figure in hopes of something better. Now I am wishing for prime.

    I second. Still, since I collect SG, I guess the worse they are the cheaper it will ultimately be for me.

    I thought it would be SG G2 Optimus, I guess he'll be a souvenir toy instead.

    I'm tempted to give up completely on SG Decepticons. The SG Autobots have been the clear winners when it comes to color schemes, so I may just get rid my SG cons and pretend the Bots killed them all.

    Heroic "Gold"? Try Heroic mustard yellow.
    I actually love the comic cover, but SG Straxus just seems a bit... out there.

    Who bets this goes for less than $30 on the secondary market?

    SG. Always SG.

    Was hoping for TFA G2 Straxus deco.

    Meh? It's not... terrible, but it's nothing too exciting. I wouldn't get mad about it if I was going, though.

    I like Shattered Glass better when it just focused on the core characters, personally. Gave it a bit more meaning.

    Now it's just "slap an ugly deco on any mold we can find and call it Shattered Glass." I feel like they put absolutely no thought behind their SG figures anymore.

    TFCC took what was, imo, a pretty awesome idea and have just completely and totally run it into the ground. These figures wouldn't even be good on their own, but compare it to the 2008 figures? Total disappointment.

    In retrospect, I did like SG Drift, because it feels like they put some real thought into him by going with the whole Deadpool homage.

    If FP would have used the TFA G2 deco, that would have went down as the greatest figure they ever made.

    I'm a sucker for Straxus, so I'll probably grab this if I can find it cheap. If this thread is any indication, that may not be too difficult.
