New Looks at Botcon 2012 Gigatron Exclusive Tank mode


Recommended Posts

A new Taobao auction listing has provided some new looks at the Botcon 2012 Invasion set exclusive Gigatron figure of what we hope is a test shot of Gigatron's alternate tank mode. Based on the the Revenge of The Fallen Bludgeon mold this figure has been repainted and a new remolded head has been added to recreate what vaguely looks like the Overlord character from the Last Stand of The Wreckers' comics series. Check out the new images after the jump and share your comments. Read the Full News Story Here

$350 is alot for ALOT of folks. MAybe more folks should be asking for more for their money. But back on topic. The tank looks a lot better then the figure. Reminds me of how the star wars TF line is good ships bad robots.

I was looking at Gigatron again and I'm even more convinced that the mold they used for him is inappropriate. The robot mode was made FOR Bludgeon, a robot samurai skeleton! It's a VERY character specific mold and it looks like a robot samurai skeleton. Yeah, it turns into a tank, but so what? The robot mode is just not right for Gigatron.

I just saw an In Hand Robot Mode of Overlord pic. And it is horrible, we should honestly be able to sue Fun Publications for false advertising

I am not going to bother with the set at all, and just buy Tread Shot on eBay

Ok so these figures look crappier every year. So why haven't these guys lost their license? I mean I know the other guys before them did some bad things but their exclusives were way better. It just seems as if the club is more interested about the number of exclusives they release then actually putting out Quality figures.

    • So much for giving our wallets a breather! In the waning days of 2023, Hasbro is starting to trickle out their 2024 line Legacy United. The first figure for most of us is Animated Optimus Prime. While I was never a fan of the cartoon, I did respect the toys and how they captured the style of said cartoon. This Voyager interpretation while giving the design some fresh angles, remains faithful to the original look. I think Animated and all Transformers fans will find something to like about this version of Optimus Prime.   
    • I like big bots, and I cannot resist following up on Alt Mode Week feature of the 2012 Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Ultimate Optimus Prime Year Of The Dragon MechTech figure with a look at the robot mode. You'll need to roll up your sleeves and do some work to transform the truck into the Omega Combat Armor mode. - Read the Full News Story
    • This time I look at a real oddity of a legends Starscream. I'm unsure which particular version I have as this guy have several variants and was released multiple times from 2010 to 2017; from RtS to Chronicles, EZ Collection to being a dollar store release!  
    • During the registration process, there is a question about who directed the first Transformers movie.  I answered Nelson Shin, and was told I was incorrect.  Apparently you all think Michael Bay directed the 1986 movie.  Wow smh
    • "The Rise Of The Beasts may have fallen to the bottom of the Movie franchise..." Yet, according to the audience, it's number 4 of 7. Perhaps the Bayverse should have focused more on the TRANSFORMERS, than the humans/military. Wow smh. Michael Bay needs to be kept far away from any future projects! Audience scores 1) Bumblebee (2018): 91% 2) Transformers the Movie (1986): 62% 3) Transformers (2007): 57% 4) Transformers Rise of the Beasts (2023): 52% 5) Transformers Dark of the Moon (2011): 35% 6) Transformers Revenge of the Fallen (2009): 20% 7) Transformers Age of Extinction (2014): 14%
