Blog #125: Toy Review: Botcon 2012 Octopunch

Octopunch is a Botcon 2012 Souvenir Exclusive.

Botcon Universe: Shattered Glass

Mold Used: Transformers 2010 Voyager Seaspray

Name Origin: Octopunch is a G1 Pretender.

This one is awesome!  The coloring is great and I love the tentacles on his chest.  Pretender characters have been very underutilized since G1, with only a handful seeing new toys.  I just wish they had made him a Classicverse Evil Decepticon rather than a Shattered Glass Heroic Decepticon.  In terms of cost, he was one of the better values (though still overpriced as all the Botcon toys are).  He was packaged with Spinister for $89.

Grade: A-

Thanks for reading!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
