Curious to see Octopunch and Spinister - am tempted by them...
Thundershot
Are those typos, or are they being called Spinster and Kickoff?
Insane Galvatron
Is Kickout the rumored Jazz mold?
Maverick Hunter Christian
All SG... Fffff...

Kickoff is accurate. Corrected the first post. It is Spinister not Spinster.
Crystal Convoy
Optimus Prime is my only want from this year's set.
metrotitan
Any clue if the junkions will all have the same head, or if they will be mixed (using junkheap and scrapheap)?
Soundwinder
I still think that Junkions in Sharkticon color scheme would've been best (since they were both introduced in the movie and were really analogous), but given we got Sharkticons two years back, Insecticon colors make more sense.
Dayvcon
****sg junkions...i must have.....anyone with good feedback that has them pm me...i can paypal.... =)
cbff
If Kickout and Spinister were packaged together, I could have seen that set selling out quick. Smart play by them to package the lesser desired figures with each one of them to encourage sales.
Insane Galvatron
I just realized, that since Spinster is Shattered Glass, he may not be in G1 colors. Or he might, if he's like Seaspray... Can't wait til someone posts some pics.
Nemesis251
I want only want Kick-Off and maybe the Junkions.

I think Spinister and Kick-off are Classics not SG. Only their package partners are.


-ZacWilliam, that way you get sort of a VS. battle pack with both sides

Nope, those two and Octopunch are what I want.

I love the original Action Masters as a whole, but sadly Kick-Off was pretty much the only one of them I was never very thrilled by. He kinda bored me as a kid for no reason I can say.

So for me it's pretty much just Spinister. Him I'd love.


-ZacWilliam, Octopunch I'm 50/50 on...
J2DK
I wonder how much the Junkions would cost. I just might be willing to pay someone to buy them for me at the convention.
Th0r4z1n3
I'll have to see pics first, but I don't think I'm interested in anything other than the Junkieons

EDIT: I'm probably going to end up caving on these, so if anybody at the con is willing to middleman for me...PLEASE shoot me a PM.
Kaijumaster
yeah, I want them all. I'm gonna be watching ebay like a hawk, and I'm hoping the 3 SG Junkions use the three head molds already in existance.
Thundershot
Fortunately, there's a good chance that they made tons of these, and the club store will still have some sets available after the con.

Even if they don't... I plan on getting Spinister, Kick-Off, and maybe Octopunch (in the hopes that Venksta or someone makes a new head for him)
Robogeek28
Why such the hard on for SG stuff this year FunPub?


Sheesh.
T4mercustomz
Darn it! Now I want overlord the junkions and prime! my poor wallet!
Ratchets Hatch
I take it this is a Shattered Glass-themed Botcon?
Anguirus
YES SPINISTER. I'll be getting that set. Any word on new heads, prices, etc?

I want "Kickout" too, we'll see if I can afford it.
thielmj
I'm getting them all but i think the only item i'm thinking i will keep of the attendees is sg optimus.
Kaijumaster
it amazes me I'm not seeing pics posted yet of the figures...there's plenty of "IN BAG" shots on Ebay , but I'm not seeing anything else.
theestampede
Don't see the point in shattered glass at all, but I really like the mold so I want the shattered glass g2 prime. Admittedly I'm too cheap to drop the cash on an exclusive like this one so its not happening. oh well
Ribieconvoy
Spinister.
I am tempted.

SG meets Classics-verse, with very little Classics-verse.
FAKER II
Metalhawk is all I wanted from the very beginning. And none of the other exclusives has changed that. With us getting Metalhaw and Overlord homages, I was hoping for some other Japanese G1 Classics-verse characters to show up as the at show exclusives. Oh well.

Sharpfinger

Ok. It's sold to me. See you on ebay
Mayhem_Prime
so spinister will be g1 colors? and what happened to sg swindle? I thought he was confirmed? I am only asking because if he was made i was hoping he would have been in ironfist colors.
Ruckyducky
I won't be at botcon till Saturday, so is there anybody interested in parting out the octopunch/spinister set? I really want Spinister. Message me if someone wants to work out a deal and i'll pay them at the con

It's not exactly from Insecticons but looks very nice.

Can we get a solid confirmation of this (if you have the comic and these are the characters within, you'd qualify. I just don't know)? The phrasing of the original post (which I assume took straight out of the back of the comic) really sounded like both toys in each set would be SG.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong (or to chalk it up to FP's lack of understanding of how conjunctions work), but I'd like clarity.

Cant wait for word on the price of these.

Way to go Big Filipino, a news credit. Now let's see those Junkions and see if they're worth the trouble!

Already going for $200+ on eBay. For those who are buying I certainly hope so!

Jesus, I just hope tomorrow I get my set to keep, perhaps the kiddo a set if he still wants/can be bumped to Primus.

Disappointed all my speculating about Scoop since he was shown so freaking much in other images that he isn't around.
exclusacon
Sadly SG Junkions are out of my price range...never a very good bidder on Ebay...

Actually, that's a fair point. In the past, the comic has had prices, too (admittedly, one year the prices in the comic were wrong). We should have this information already.

Don't think you can blame FP as SG has been one of their best selling sets, and one of the sets with the highest after market values.
