No me gusta.

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.

Eww to both the toy and comic cover
ex dtw2003
Cool?
exclusacon
looks cool...

I thought it would be SG G2 Optimus, I guess he'll be a souvenir toy instead.
sh002
glad i'm skipping botcon this year.

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.

.............. seriously? i mean i know the whole theme this year involves shattered glass....... BUT COME ON? THAT PAINT JOB LOOKS HORRIFIC.... anybody wanna guess how long its gonna take for these to flood ebay?
Motor_Master
Wow the comic cover looks aawwwffffuuulll.
Ribieconvoy
Heroic "Gold"? Try Heroic mustard yellow.
I actually love the comic cover, but SG Straxus just seems a bit... out there.
Crystal Convoy
Who bets this goes for less than $30 on the secondary market?

Me likey! I wish I could get all the shattered glass figures ever made, but

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.
Sinnertwin
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.

I wished people would stop referring to Straxus alt mode as a tank. It is not a tank.
Shadowbreaker
Should've been in G2 Straxus colors.
Sideways77
I love that color scheme. Gold and lime look good with each other.
Anguirus
That's...not thrilling, in and of itself. I might keep it if he's great in the comic or something. At least it's...unexpected?

Close enough. Remove the two wheels and it's a tank.
Maverick Hunter Christian
...at least its... not another... blue and red toy...

Still. Woof.

Wouldn't surprise me if FunPub just makes up these SG repaints using a system of five dartboards: One has character names, another has available molds and the other three have various colours. Throw one dart at each board to get the mold, character name, three main colours and, boom, they've got Shattered Glass [character].
General Magnus
Tanks donīt have wheels, those are half tracks, WWII relics

This is a tank:

This is NOT a tank:

152-mm Self-propelled Howitzer 2S19 "MSTA-S"

Wish SG would die already. It's a crutch at this point.

Sadly I'll bet you anything they keep pimping it for years.

The comic cover is poor and the figure doesn't look too great.

Pretty good assessment, if I do say so myself.

They can kill it after I get an SG Sunstreaker to go with my Sideswipe. That's all I care about.

Don't think that will happen. They've used the Lambo mold quite a bit (might be wore out) and they probably wouldn't want to make SG Sunstreaker turn traitor too and use the Armada Wheeljack mold either.

Given what a convoluted hot mess SG Sideswipe turned out to be (I say this out of love.....I actually like it quite a bit), I can't imagine what they would come up with for Sunstreaker. Still, I'd be curious to see it.

I don't think the Armada Wheeljack mold would automatically make him a traitor. Plus I'm not so sure that mold would work for Sunstreaker. Granted in the comic all you really saw was his head. So who know.

I still want one.

I need an evil Sunstreaker so he can battle with his traitor brother!!

Ugly figure, Crom laughs at you.

At first I really didn't like the SG Sideswipe toy. Not sure why. But I kept going back to look at it and finally I bought one and in hand it really made the difference for me. Not too sure why.

I just hate having one version of a twin without a matching brother.
skiss
Hot damn I need this yellow monstrosity. *jets off to ebay*
Nemesis251
There are a couple already on Ebay
Angelwave
What a tasty looking yellow. I wanna spread him on a cracker and down it with some vino.

SG Straxus is Serpentor!

There is already an auction for the figure on E-bay and it is at $91.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Good news is that the tech is posted in the auction. I enhanced the image, so here it is...
matrixprime
Still meh at best although the comic cover sucks ass. Botcon you didn't sway me to go and I thank you. Now off I go to Dairycon.
Grimlock_13
I actually don't mind it too much. I like the mold too. Definitely needs a Reprolabel to cover up that SG shit though.

Agreed. It was a neat idea for one year but it wore out its welcome VERY quick IMO.

The Bard of Darkmount? They couldn't just say Straxus?
Nightrain
Serpentor colors would get me interested if it was actually gold.
