That's why everyone bought Wreck-Gar and nobody paid the Premium for e-Hobby Scrapheap right?
Or hell, why buy the boxset at all when you can purchase Jazz, Thunderwing, Bludgeon, RTS Optimus, Tracks, and Ironhide.
That's just hyperbolic nonsense and you know it. Total nonsense and one of the dumber things I've seen in this thread.
FP isn't going to produce something that looks damn near like stuff that's already on the shelf. Hell, I doubt Hasbro would let them produce a three pack of Junkions, all of which will end up having the exact same colors BTW. It makes no sense to produce over priced off color versions of figures that are pretty easy to get instead of doing what Botcon does and give them a whole new color scheme.
Yeah, I'm wondering why you think a Botcon set of Junkions would look exactly like Wreck-Gar, Scrapheap or Junkheap. All three of those look pretty dissimilar anyways.
Where did I say that?
The three would be identically painted. All three would look the same. While a bit different from what's on shelves they'd still be extremely similar if they kept them in Junkon colors.
I don't see where the confusion comes in.
It would be too similar. As in not different enough to merit FP doing it in the first place.
*ahem*Desaras*ahem*... new head, VERY similar redeco. And unlike that toy, these have a REASON to look similar to the other Junkions (they're ALL JUNKIONS). Don't forget that if you have an extra Wreck-Gar or Junkheap, you can swap parts with them to differentiate all three.
Do you honestly doubt these would sell out in normal colors too? I mean, how big do you think the Shattered Glass audience really is? Is it that much bigger than the numbers of people who paid WAY MORE to get Scrapheap? (again, the people who got that toy generally bought a $100 3-pack just for that one toy.) I can't be the only person who really isn't that moved by the SG toys (again, they're NEVER quite satisfying to me... it's always ALMOST giving me what I want, which actually kind of pisses me off).
I mean, shoot, why are we even pretending that these won't all sell out anyway? Even if they don't all sell out at the show, they will once they're on the website.
