    That's what I was thinking. I'm guessing they're just using the name cause they only have like 3 or 4 transformation steps. But, then wouldn't that make every G1 combiner limb a "Fast Action Battler" also?

    But they do have a little flipchanger action. We've seen them in the photos.

    My guess is from the geared bits evident on Optimus, which could mean that a bunch of pieces move all at once. Sort of like semi-automatic transforming.

    Doesn't sound like a super reputable source for information about an entire line to me, especially when the same seller originally convinced him that this ironhide toy was the MAIN movie ironhide toy.

    Well, you should probably say it's a rumor than as opposed to news.

    As for some g1 stuff being "fast action", it's a relative term. Toys from the 80's would be totaly crap if released today because now we can have MP detailed figures. If a figure like g1 BB got released as a main line toy people would be pissed off I think.

    I assumed fast action means 3 second transformation. Not sure what the confusion is there.

    Ebay:
    Maybe you should define "auto-transform"? The ones I fiddled with were definitely spring-loaded, and a major part of their transformation was accomplished when that spring was released. There seemed to be some things you had to do manually, but I would say they at least partially auto-transformed.
