    Since I don't own the 08 set, I try to shy away from the SGverse... if I buy one figure, I'll want to go back and buy the others I can't afford, etc. However, I'll be getting SG Ravage with my Scorch, so I'll probably put him in my collection as Glit, but I like SG Ravage's personality so I'll just as likely have him adopt that while still being Glit (already planning to have Glit sit in front of Universe Ravage and wave at him). However, if FunPub were to make it so this figure is both SG Ravage and Glit, then they'd basically be making my idea official :lol

    Yeah, don't own the SG stuff myself and honestly have no interest in it (not knocking it SG fans... the concept just does nothing for me...). I had picked up the Megatron shortly after the convention as I really liked the head on it, but I just couldn't rectify him with the rest of my collection and had no interest in the others from that year so I totally understand how you feel. Still if these figures end up being both characters I can just ignore any part of their fiction that mentions them being SG characters.

    Double Punch doesn't have a new head does he? I can't tell on my cell phone.

    Was kinda hoping he would.

    Nope... pity, but I think FunPub already used up all their head remolds. I guess they could have done another, but this guy is probably going to be expensive as is...

    Weel I'd say we have another case of 2006 Rhinox, becuase A/E/C loved to mold in the symbols & they didn't have enough in the budget for such a small retool they just left it there & hope nobody notices. I'm less tempted now that it's Slicer but it could still be used as a repurposement so I'll decide when I see prices.

    Maybe Slicer is a multiversal traveller lost there like Cliffjumper is, and SideBurn appears to be

    If you read SG Ravage's Facebook entries from the last day, something's fishy, as he followed SG Wheeljack through a portal. With any luck, SG Wheeljack will join the Decepticons and change his name to Slicer.

    Not too keen on all of scorpi's pink. This years botcon set is sortta a let down imao, nearly all repaints. And also reminds me of why I don't like G2.

    Unless I'm mistaken, SG Ravage's online persona is run by David Willis, not an official FunPub thing. But, it's certainly possible that he's in-on the storyline and is doing some viral advertising for it. I mean, he's the guy who got Universe Hot Shot and Generations Straxus as love letters from Hasbro, so it's easy to imagine FunPub collaborating with him.

    Um.... that's what all Botcon exclusives are? And for that matter, pretty much any exclusive (aside from Chevy Swerve)

    Double Punch and Clench are ridiculously awesome! The rest of the set is just awesome. :)  Tomorrow cannot come fast enough.

    I'm really impressed with Clench's head. Badass.

    I love the Oil Pan that mold has grown on me ever since I finally picked up Breakdown.

    Is he autobot or decepticon?
