    I have no inclinations to buy this figure because I have no clue who this guy is. BUT, and this is where the question comes from, I want that Kremzeek.

    So I ask you all, how many of you will be purchasing this figure and how many are doing so for a Kremzeek?

    Thanx

    I will be buying this, but not for the Kremzeek. It's a nice bonus figure no question, but thats all it is, a nice bonus.

    I'll probably get the figure, I actually like a lot of aspects about the figure, not just the Kremzeek... but I'll definitely be keeping mine.

    The Kremzeek episode is probable my lest favorite G1 episode ever. Even when I was a kid I remember fining that episode irritating. And I think that’s why I want a Kremzeek figure so bad. But I have no interest in that kissplay business so I’ll have to wait for naughtier opportunity.

    Kremeek was indeed a terribly annoying episode...but I'd still love to own the little figurine. Never will unfortunately since I'm not getting Autolooper.

    Sorry not getting any of the KISS figuers. Will not support that line, or pay 3 times as much for what is basicaly an Alternator.

    Yup, I'm getting this. I would have gotten it without the Kremzeek, but that's a great added bonus.

    I don't normally "re-name" my Alternators, but in cases like this and Decepticharge (in which the character doesn't exist previously and has a ridiculous name) I'll make an exception. Like a lot of folks, I'm pretty much considering this guy to be Streetwise.

    Not trying to discourage conversation or people's opinions on this subject but can we keep this thread relevant and on topic, and avoid just making blanket *I hate KISS Play* comments. Thanks.

    Kiss line is all plastic it seems, Convoy and Hot Rod were so I assume Autolooper will be the same.

    Plastic, so calling them "basically an Alternator" is not so far from the truth.

    Kremzeek tempts me, as well as the figure itself - Mazda mold=love - but it's far too easy to rationalize myself out of a purchase. The cost, the KP girl I don't need, the packaging I'd be forced to trash, not to mention... why am I caring about Kremzeek in the first place?! :lol

    I wouldn't even buy a sheet of paper for a crappy model of a pointless and irritating character from a terrible G1 episode. Add to that an all-plastic redo of a mould I already own twice (albeit with a fairly nice new head sculpt), with an incredibly silly gun and a dodgy figure, and that's a big fat "no sodding way in HELL" from me.

    Well said, that's why I will only buy Autolooper if it is the remold of BT Meister instead of the Alt. version

    I'll always support Alt/BT molds with a purchase, in spite of the fact I don't care for the direction of the KP line.

    The Kremzeek episode was always one of my least favorites, so I find the inclusion of the figure to be a big 'meh'.

    Its not really fair to say that these are just overpriced Alternators. If KISS Convoy was any indication, the paint is outstanding, and the joints are all nice and tight. I gave the line a chance, and the figure I ended up getting was pretty great. I'm eagerly awaiting my Hot Rod.

    As I said in a previous topic, the little Melissa wasn't too skanky, so she's currently driving Alt Prime's truck mode around. Whoever comes with Hot Rod doesn't look too terrible either, but I'll probably just throw her in the parts bin.

    Didn't they release a mini version of this guy that came with a giant half naked anime girl? Did anyone ever see that one up close?

    I'm fairly certain Autorooper will have a right-hand steering wheel.
