Today we were all scorned to learn the visage of what should’ve been the flag-ship figure of this year’s Botcon 2012 set, Heroic Shattered Glass Soundwave. The figure you see above is the official figure photo revealed by Botcon today.
I was really expecting this figure to rule, but even I have to reluctantly bitch. No expected headband, stupid GI-Joe decal on the side of the door, and the god-damn face is not Soundwave, it’s Optimus Prime. What the hell is going on here!? I call shenanigans on the up-till-now amazing SG Soundwave art we have seen.
Oh well, I’ll still be getting it! I love the idea of Shattered Glass Soundwave, but this execution is not as good as the custom I saw at last year’s Botcon. We can’t all have our cake and eat it too!
