    ::JOYGASM:: Thank you Hasbro!! This is an awesome toy! though "attack mode" is ridiculous. and how come they say the chain saw is a data-com communicator?

    Looks like Hasbro legal strikes again.

    You rub the sign. Or just press your finger on it for a few seconds and your body heat will make the faction symbol in it change colors

    Thinking about getting a Repro set and adding a few

    I gotta say although Rodimus isn't my favorite of the bunch he was the one I was most surprised with.

    His car mode is like his G1 version but the robot mode is pure love.

    when you refer to attack mode do you mean flipping his back end over to expose the gun on top??? If so , yeah its weak.

    Thanx

    I'm feeling 'meh' about him right now because mine came with no pins in the elbows - the forearms just fall off. After I get a new one in hand I'm sure I'll be a little more excited about him.

    I love this line. I really, REALLY hope that Hasbro extends it beyond just the few initial waves that were already mentioned.
    The Devastator repaint holds some promise that they may use existing molds and repaint them as classics. Just think of the possibilities there. Such as Cyb. Downshift as Classics Wheeljack or Cyb. Shortround as Classics Beachcomber.
    Granted I'd rather have NEW molds alltogether. But if they're not giving us Classics Cosmos this could be an acceptable substitute.
    IMPO, the best figures since Beast Wars started to get ramped up.

    I think you mean Cyb Shortround as Classics Seaspray.

    Yeah, there are certain molds, especially from Cybertron that could be repainted as Classics. With Downshift and Shortround being Hasbro made instead of Takara (I think), I'm sure they'll want to get their money's worth out of those molds.

    Some of them need a little extra TLC. My Megs took a while to get to show.

    Show the rub sign some extra attention and you should be fine.

    I remember having a few as a kid where the rubsign was a bit stubborn getting started.

    Two or three seconds in front of the hair dryer will get it working in a jiffy.

    Yeah, just keep working at it. For the longest time, I had no idea what those things were, until one day, I left one of my Transformers outside in the sun and, "Hey, a green autobot symbol!!"

    Give it some time and some body heat. The whole "rub" thing is just cause rubbing it hard enough will cause enough friction to warm it up.

    But at least now I know that fellow Hot Rod fans like the guy, so I have no worries for when I get mine. ;)  Sweet!

    I'm about as not-picky as you can get, though. :)  There really aren't too many toys I've gotten that I don't like... I think only C. Thundercracker and C. Dirt Boss are the only ones I really just can't get myself to like.

    I mean, really. I even like C. Runamuck! I think I need to find an Armada Hot Shot to keep him company...

    I do like it. I also found the communicator name weird, but as said it's probably for legal reasons. I haven't had the forarms fall off on mine. I've had more trouble in that area with Astrotrain.

    Yeah, the rubsign on my Prime was particularly stubborn to get working. I think I was rubbing for a minute before the thing finally started to work. I even blasted it a few times with a couple of hot breaths, which usually works, but nothing.
