Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus from Botcon 2012 boxset – He gave Prime his face!

Botcon 2012 Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus toy

Diacloooooone!!!! Well, sort of.

Yay, a clear look at Botcon 2012 Ultra Magnus, a REAL CLEAR look at his clear face!!!! Ultra Ghostnus! From what I can gather, Shattered Glass Ultra Magnus is some sort of cross-over with G2 laser Optimus Prime and Bludgeon. I get that from the box art I suppose, but it’s really anyone’s guess until we get the comic that goes with this peculiar set.

Public outcry is, as expected, at a whiny fever pitch (myself included) and most of the distaste comes from the head, which if you look closely, is another remold. That’s quite a few heads we’ve gotten so far this year! Woo hoo! You can’t say that Fun Publications didn’t give it their all this year, at least from a production standpoint.

Evillll

Just to get a taste of what fans are saying, here is one of the more heated comments I’ve seen:

wtf is up with the tribal bullshit! i’ll say it. its fuckin lame/stupid, what is this?… some “just got into college” shattered Ultra magnus that got drunk after a weezer concert in florida and tatooed is hood like a dumbass. WTF! Jesus! WTF!

So there you have it. We don’t like tribal bullshit on our toys. Or Zartan heads.

Here is an updated look at Magnus’ head thanks to Botcon

Botcon 2012 Gigatron / Overlord revealed! – Bludgeon mold with new head sculpt

Botcon 2012 Overlord

And this is why I didn't want to make a solid guess on the mold - insane!

As I was hoping, Overlord is the first figure to be revealed for this year’s Botcon 2012 boxset!  Wow!  What a surprise!  It’s in the ROTF Bludgeon mold, which is the first movieverse mold to ever be used as a Botcon exclusive.  Some say that ROTF Bludgeon is not really part of the movie universe, but it is, so there.  What could this mean for the rest of these figures?  Metalhawk as Terradive?  Oh dear me, the game just changed!

Check out the reveal video below:
