    At TFcon, I remember them showing him when they were showing the Headrobots stuff, but was talking to someone to figure out what I'd missed since i came into the panel late. Point is, I can't remember-is he actually coming out, or just something they were messing with?

    EDIT:: my bad, his name is Big Road-potentially a Trailbreaker toy.

    Wha? I didn't see any thing regarding, Road Rage.

    Then again, I wasn't there.

    Also Road Rage is a chick.

    Crap. Isn't Road Rage what they're calling their Trailbreaker? Shoot, his name is Big Road

    I'd like to hear more info on this as well.

    At first I recall HR saying that it was not going into production, and was strictly a, "let's see what we can do" sort of project.

    I do think that something was mentioned about HR now considering producing this now.

    And I do hope that they go through with it. I'd love to see what they're capable of in making their own compete figures.

    I'm curious to see how BR turns out too. Hopefully HR makes some more aesthetic detail changes to the mold to make the figure more Classic-y in appearance.

    How sure are we? If they were just going by the slides it means nothing because Big Road was shown as a previous project and not a future release. I was just wondering if an insider has said its coming out now? I hope so because its about time we get a trailbreaker and with a trailbreaker, a Hoist shouldnt be too far behind.

    The interview with headrobots a couple of weeks ago said they were not intending to release Big Road so I'm going to go with its not coming out until we hear otherwise. I think the news on the front page here was just assuming it was coming out because of the slides. Hopefully we can convince Headrobots to bring it out or sell it to Toyworld at least, they dont care about any IP infringement lol

    the interview was months ago, since then the retail figures declined so drastically in quality, might've changed their minds on the project, i hope so, it's one of my most anticipated figures

    they put it under future projects at tfcon, pretty sure they wouldn't have if it wasn't coming out
