    so, in the vein of the other thread, i figured why not start a 2nd one based on all the rumored figures... some of these we've seen pics of, others are purely speculation based on numerous resources... some might have even been debunked, but i'm not entirely sure, so i'm including every rumor i've heard... like SG Perceptor as Magnificus or a Diaclone inspired Black Ironhide... i figured everything is possible... and even left the possibility of something unexpected...

    Spinister and SG Swindle (done in red like G2) would be what i'm most stoked about...

    That's what I was thinking.

    Only two I want, as long as they're classics and not SG, are Spinister and Kickoff.

    Octopunch would've been a done deal with a new head

    not necessarily, and you can vote for all 3 if you want, cuz the multi option is on... if they're real, it's probable that i'll only get Scrapheap, because i've got the retail version of the other 2... so, i'll have one SG Junkion who is different from the non SG versions still...

    yeah, i like Octopunch, but i do agree a new head would've made him a done deal for sure... i'm kinda torn on him now... i love the colors, and the ducks are funny, just not sure... i may just get him and reprolabel him, but i'm not sure yet...

    This.

    Though I do want Octopunch because I have hopes someone like Venksta will get us a new head and trident...

    ahh, well nuts too late now.

    As for Octopunch I think he's perfect. The molds default head was incredibly close to his pretender head as is (diffrent kind of dive mask sure....BUT A DIVE MASK!) complaining for a new head just seems ludicrous to me on that particular figure.

    I voted Octopunch and Spinister, for a few reasons.

    1) Collectors always love to pad out their Decepticon ranks
    2) Both played noteworthy roles in the classic comics, especially as members of the Mayhem Attack Squad
    3) Octopunch will chill with Skullgrin, Bludgeon, and Thunderwing/Sky Shadow as modern Pretenders.
    4) With Octopunch and Bludgeon, all we need is a Stranglehold stand-in for the complete 3rd lineup for the Mayhem Attack Squad, AKA Pretender Force
    5) Ducks
    6) There'll likely be a third-party add-on kit for Octopunch, which will drive up value. Hopefully one for Spinister will show as well.
    7) Never doubt the nostalgia power of characters spotlighted in the UK.

    Kick-Off, and when did SG Perceptor and SG Ironhide rumors start (they weren't on the rumored list)?

    i recall hearing them at some point, however it's entirely possible that they were on a wish list and i just got confused, but since they're fun ideas, i figured why not add them to the list?

    I'm going with Kickoff, Octopunch & Spinister Basically cause I have been wanting a version of Octopunch & Spinster to join my Classics-verse Decepticon Army for awhile. And Kick Off was one of my favorite Actionmasters. P.S. We need more Mayhem!

    Initially, the SG Insecticon Junkions, but that should be one option.

    Within a month or two, the Venksta / Maiden Japan / wily customiser garager kit maker will release an add-on kit and Octopunch will go crazy town.

    That is the intention. The designer (or maybe someone from Captured Prey) implied they'd worked fine on the Tomahawk mold. Maybe on the Master Shooters facebook page?

    If everything works out, Octoduck will have an upgrade or two available. ;)
