    I just got a text from a friend in the customizing class who said that the figure being customized is Shattered Glass BotCon Thunderclash! Thunderclash will combine with Shattered Glass Nightbeat.

    So in the Shatteredverse, Thunderclash must have subtle, eye-pleasing colors. :p

    Thunderclash is in the boxset this year so there is a slight/basic connection - nothing groundbreaking though.

    SG Nightbeat and SG Thunderclash should both be evil.

    Wow. For as much grief we give FunPub about future planning, this definitely hits the mark. Too bad it's one of those scenarios where it only makes sense if you were able to attend the customization class from last year as well as this year. (or at least remember who last years customization class figure was)

    Too bad the customization classes have such a limited seating. :(

    It will have a white/black/green color scheme but I don't know which parts will be which colors.

    Does this mean the next club exclusive toy will be SG Thunderclash.... That seems to be the theme of the customizing class figure... Nightbeat and Overkill were both customizing class figures before they got an eventual release... Since this is SG then it kinda means it will be a club exclusive.

    this is interesting...and i like that it works with last years figure...still don't need it, or last years, but i'm sure there's people excited for this...

    and no, the next club figure won't be SG TC...nightbeat was a club exclusive, and SG NB was a botcon customizing exclusive. and overkill was a botcon customizing exclusive, and then HTS released overkill...

    i seriously doubt HTS would even think about releasing a SG TC...

    Well, cool. I like that this years set is adding on to the last few years sets ie Razorclaw=2006 and Elita-1=2007. Kinda makes sense that they would have something to represent last years set.

    Actually what do they do in the customizing class, how exactly is it customized?

    Never been to a botcon and all that :(

    The only thing that makes me scratch my head is that why make the customizing fig the same mold as one in the box set?

    Oh well, gratz to those who like it.

    The important issue here is that the custom class figure is not a Sweep.

    3rd attendee set is still a possibility/question...

    Last year we pieced it together from the sprues, assembled, painted, and stickered the SG Nightbeat.

    I am wondering what brought this figure on rather than something else. I'm guessing it will have the the same base colors as the normal Thunderclash from the set, as our nightbeats had the same colors as the original manufacturing run.

    Sucks for the few of us that can't make it this year for the class, that made it last year.

    sg nightbeat was never mass released and the club nightbeat had been shown before botcon. overkill is the only one to be turned from a class exclusive into an actual released figure
