    Also worth noting - the sticker on the surfboard probably confirms the Alpha Trion as Thundertron from the leaked list.

    (Not to mention this toy itself suggests Apelinq is happening)

    Well, he'll probably end up on the club store like Blastcharge did.

    Wow....this is what a custom class figure should be. Kinda neat, but not something that really stings to miss out on (G2 Sideswipe)

    looks like a little nod to Broadside in the surfboard colors

    This is a weak sauce custom figure. He should be easy to pick up in the aftermarket for a decent price.

    This is shaping up to be one of the best damn offerings Botcon has ever had.

    No interest, and I'm betting this figure sells worse than Blastcharge from last year. It sucks, as I'm fairly certain that if Fun Pub continues to not sell out the custom class figure kits, they will either reduce the number or stop the process altogether. Which will really bite when they finally do a figure that is in high of demand as G2 Sideswipe again.

    I disagree - this is way better than last year's custom class figure. I'm sure they already reduced the production on these based on last year's sales of Blastcharge. I will be surprised if it doesn't sell out at the show

    That's an interesting custom class fig. I can't see it taking too long to put it together.
