    Botcon via Twitter has announced a second run of the infamous headband. Maybe this time they'll get the color right at least?

    Ha!

    Now that's sticking it to someone!

    How's that $30 and $50 price tag now?

    if they change the color it would kind of be stupid.

    one because it would make some rage, and two it should be green because some of the apps, eyes and headlights are green when they all should be yellow to begin with.

    would look weird with a yellow on the figure we have now.

    ...why even bother?

    It's easier, cheaper, and probably better looking just to buy a piece of fabric at the dollar store or something and make a headband yourself. (assuming the second run will be of the same quality)

    It's still cool of them to recognize this and make a second run of them.

    While they're at it maybe they can make some more of those SG Junkion sets that they sold to a couple of clowns by the pallet. I mean, if they're trying to do folks a solid and all.

    Ha, good for them.

    Remember, if you don't want one, doesn't mean no one wants one, and it's incredibly satisfying to see a certain retailer get totally undercut here.

    Don't worry someone will buy them all and keep the prices at the low low affordable price of $50.

    Honestly someone should just draw a picture or photo of Swindle (pick your favorite version) selling the headbands at stupid high mark up.

    I can't afford one now, but I'm hoping they don't sell out any time soon. Goddamn, I really want that headband!!!

    Guys... for those saying that the headband is off color... the whole figure is off-color. Every part of Soundwave on the figure and headband that's supposed to be yellow/lime came out plain green.

    Yeah.

    I think I might actually have been able to stomach the figure if it were yellow instead of green.

    But in for a penny, in a for a pound. Changing it to yellow now would look bad since the damage is already done.

    But that said, I think it is admirable of FunPub to do it. I'm usually pretty critical of them, but I have to give credit when it's due.

    How much did folks have to pay for the "official" headband again? Hope it's not how folks are joking with 3-50$... o_O

    I like seeing the club do things like this to help out the community. Well done.

    Suck it, Toyarena.

    Well, by "clowns" I mean "dealers" and by "pallet" I mean "heaping friggin handfuls" - but yeah, there's a reason the Junkions sold out on Saturday morning.
