I might buy the Millenium Falcon. If I ever get depressed I could probably just sit there and laff at it, thus cheering me up. Or making me track down anyone associated with its' production and fire a rifle up their arsehole. Either is good.

Ooh! Looks like Rumble is the first Decepticon to have his own mold before an autobot got it. Not only does he have piledrivers, but he's RED!!! Man, I can't wait for him. :D

It lools ok can't make much out apart from Rumble's big forearms which is a nice design to tie in with his piledrivers, if that was the intention.

Honda Civic Go!

Now we can have a purple one for ratbat, a lilac one for frency, Eject, Rewind.....repaint city!

Smart move commercially.

Now that's a neat design nod to the original... :)

I hope they twist to hang down a bit rather than sticking out to the sides, though (like Grimlock's can, for instance.)

Ratbat? :wtf:

Now, the question is, who would be a remold of this guy? It doesn't really leave much in the way of obvious counterparts, in my opinion. No point in wasting a remold on Frenzy when he can just be a straight up repaint. I guess you could do Eject and Rewind, but they don't really match up to that robot mode.

What other robot modes have no hands but big huge club like things in place of their hands?

Q: Will there be any UK exclusive transformer toys?

A: Cannot say but Hasbro are working on their next Alternator which is a JAGUAR sportscar (he said that honest) after the ford GT

hmmmm, jaguar alt.[/homer simpson]
Hasbro UK didn't want to release Prowl or Skids is because, "There are not many Integras and Scions plying british roads" A bit stupid since they seem to be interested in Prime whoes a dodge RAM
this is the most nonsensical reason i've ever heard, like someone sees a cool transformer but is like "too bad it's a car i don't know, or else i would've bought it." add on that we in the the netherlands got smokescreen, swindle and windcharger, while i've almost never seen a subaru, jeep wrangler or honda in the netherlands.

If that SW:TF is being touted as a "deluxe", I assume that's going to be the equivalent of a Ultra in TF {two $15 figures being thirty}?

Yeah... well... The only problem with THIS thread is that it's got that rediculous Falcon in it. :P
