    Nice looking bot, it's great to finally see his car more.

    The only gripe I have is lack of real hands, but otherwise he's pure love.

    So after this Alternators is over forever right?




    Maybe there're no hands becasue Kitty took exception to being petted in the first place.

    NICE...I LOVE that it is a Civic Si, though I don't see the Si logo in the grill (but the picture is a little blurry in that spot, it looks like it COULD be there) also hoping the DOHC VTEC logo will be on the side.

    I want this Alternator!!!

    Well, this picture is clearer than before, so you can tell that he actually does have hands, after a fashion.

    If you look around the edges of the end of the pildrivers you can see indents with sloped ends. Fold those out and down to get the fingers.

    EDIT: My bad, same picture as before. I guess we just never looked hard enough at the pictures before.

    Although it's been mentioned several times in various places that Rumble will not have hands per se, it still looks like there's foldey-down bits around the head of the pile drivers that could approximate finger-type structures like Armada Demolishor's or Cybertron Wingsaber's

    *Edit*

    Yes, like Omnus said, but slightly more eloquently.

    Cool, can't wait to get my hands on him, but i guess i'll have to wait. Hope we'll see more of him at Botcon and also here some good news about the line and where it actually is going.

    Ohmigawd Rumble should be blue! I blame Michael Bay for this!

    Actually, this can't get here soon enough. First Alt I've been excited about since Mirage.

    Hasbro should really take down Nemesis Prime from their site. Looking athim just makes sick. But can't wait for Rumble...if he ever shows up.

    I really don't care too much about the car modes for Transformers. I know the realistic car mode is a big selling point for lots of collectors, but I've just never been interested in cars, really. If the Transformers brand were released as non-transforming robots, I probably still would've gone for it. For me, it's all about the robots. The only real reason for me to transform a figure into its alt-mode is so I can enjoy transforming him into a robot all over again.

    Having said that, I've been excited about this Rumble figure ever since the first photo showed up. It's a really different robot design from what we're used to seeing in almost any of the Transformers toy lines. The illusion of stumpy legs and long arms may be reminiscent of Cybertron Crumplezone, but Rumble's robot mode seems far superior, judging by the image we have. I couldn't tell what he transformed into, so I was excited to see the headline here. A Honda Civic? ::shrug:: I really couldn't care much less about that. I would have thought any kind of off-road vehicle would be more appropriate for such a powerhouse of a robot, but what do I know? I only shell out money to buy these things.

    Has anyone heard if there are plans for a figure that transforms into a Hummer? That would be cool.
