    It seems the T-Rex had some major structural modifications;

    Not-Swoop looks VERY Swoop-ish indeed~

    There're also some renders of the not-Protectobots, but I think we'v seen them before.

    Easy pass for now but who knows what will happen when the final product is revealed.

    Shouldn;t TFC be more concerned with showing the last two Herc bots?

    They combine and I do not think they are PPC replacements.

    It was just announced that these guys will be able to connect with their other two projects Hercules and the other one.

    I will hold judgement until I see some prototypes or finished samples.

    Not feeling Grimlock so much, but Swoop appeals to me the same way G1 Swoop and Sorokage do.

    I'm not THAT much of a stickler for 100% G1 accuracy but the T-Rex head transforming into Grimlock's chest REALLY bothers me for some reason. That concept is reserved for BW Dinobot to me. Other than that I'm pretty open-minded about TFC's new stuff. They must be rather confident that Hercules is going to make everybody happy.

    Wow, do those renders make them look rigid and limited. Will wait for physical protos before I make a decision.

    are they suppose to be TFs 3rd party? or Power rangers? If you guys recall the last rendering with colors they look more like Power Ranger toys.

    They are "transformable" robot vehicles.
    Not under Transformers nor Power Rangers.
    There is a show (2D and 3D) running in China backing the toys up since 2008. It is up to part 11 now and part 12 with all these new robots will be on TV soon.
    The new robots are supposed to be from a new department in the rescue team. TFC said they might consider to give the old toy some new attachment parts to combine with the new vehicles.
