    Are you suggesting selling your G1 collection to fund a trip to Botcon? You should post pics and list what you've got cause I'm looking for some G1s.

    So.... I love how his story is mirroring the Battle in a Box story with Magnus. That's awesome!

    Too bad it'll all be sold out long before I get my tax refund...

    So does this tweet mean that Kickoff won't be using this head? That would suck because this head is perfect for Kickoff.

    ...Or is this head excluded since it may not technically be a Botcon head? (there's speculation that this alternate head was already on the mold, thus not commissioned by Botcon)

    Kick Off's head is actually quite close to Jazz, I wonder if they'll just stick with his head.

    Thats what I'm wondering. Unless they meant all the Box set figs would each have a unique head.

    If there is Universe Hound redeco whoever it is,
    SG catgut will be Uni Ravage mold with Armada Nightbeat mini-con color scheme.
    It makes sense, doesn't it?

    I wonder if Treadshot's head counts towards this since it is apparently the Hasbro alternate head, and not technically a *Botcon* head.

    (Apologies to Miggytron, somehow missed your post stating the same thing. :redface2:  )

    Doesn't SG Ricochet make a better Treadshot? Is this because they already made both Richochet and Sideswipe? Why not make Stepper? It didn't stop Takara from putting out Thrust and Dirge after Botcon (old wound).

    I think people like it as a new character as opposed to a homage to a revered character. But it'll probably be as popular as Flak and Landshark.

    Sigh, I was hoping that he'd be based on G1 Treadshot.

    Since it is a SG character, it was never going to have G1 Treadshot's color scheme anyway.

    Yeah, so if Metalhawk, Soundwave, and Overlord get new FP heads, and Treadshot and Magnus get "alternate Hasbro instructions heads", then that leaves the theoretical Octopunch getting a new FP head (probably the last), Kick-Off using the Jazz head, Spinister using the regular Tomahawk head, SG Swindle having the original Hound head, and the Junkions all using the three heads the mold comes with (still keeping with no two heads being alike!).

    *whew*

    Was also hoping for a Classics Megatron repaint/new head for G1 Treadshot, however unlikely...

    He looks like Nightbeat again.

    Spinister will use the Vortex head, I would imagine.
