    I saw this at Wal Mart: [​IMG]

    They also had one of Spidey as a jet, and one of the Lizard. I bought the jet one, and it's just like a G1 Jumpstarter, right down to the only articulation being the arms moving up and down. In the side of the package it says "Made with TRANSFORMERS Technology."

    If it wasn't for the Hasbro Logo right there on the packaging, I would've called "Bootleg Trash" on this toy, that's just how ridiculous this concept is to me.

    I'm really hoping that these sell well enough that we get a new Classics Jumpstarters.

    You must be one of those Battle Charger fans.
    ***shakes fist***

    Looks like I'll need to buy these to add to my Jumpstarter Armada.

    I'm thinking so. Maybe a slight nod to Avengers/Transformers from a few years ago?

    I just acquired a Twin Twist figure last night which my uncle found in a box of Legos at his church.

    It has some issues with the "jumpstarter" transforming capabilities, so I'm wondering if I could swap out the pullback windup parts with the ones found inside of these Spider-Man figures?

    Has anyone tried this before?

    I'm pretty sure they're not the same size figures, but the parts might still work. That said, its probly cheaper to pick up a working Twin Twist on ebay.
