    I was lucky enough to find these at my local Wal-mart for $7.77!!

    And after reading "her" bio on the back does anyone think that she has similiar powers to the Renegade Crasher?

    :confused: 

    I know there is some legal BS why they can't use the Go-Bot names or what?

    Same reason it's Silverstreak, Rodimus, Hardshell, Insecticon, and Tankor now days. Yes the figure is in fact supposed to be Crasher. Someone else tradmarked Crasher (and Bluestreak/Hot Rod/Bombshell/Shrapnel/Octane) in toys for something. Doesn't matter for what just that Hasbro didn't get their first.

    OK but just my opinion Bluestreak/Hot Rod/Bombshell/Shrapnel/Octane will ALWAYS be JUST Transformers not anything else...:thumb

    Looks like all Deluxes at some or all Wal-Marts right now are the $7.77 price.

    I saw three Fractures yesterday but the paint jobs on all of them were bad, and I had to pass.

    Yup, Hasbro owns Go-Bots, but since they were not using many of the names (many not worth reusing) the copyright on them lapsed. I'd love for more Go-Bot goodness be integrated.

    Yes that would be cool to have them "Crossover" into the TF Universe

    Yeah I actually bought Breakaway after seeing him repainted into Breakdown, which is also ironically close to the name Hasbro used, go figure.

    Oh and hopefully Hasbro still owns Leader-1 (we know it was used on a min-con already) I think fans would like to see a repaint from the classics seeker mold as well as Fitor, which I believe was one of the Renegade cone-head types

    Hasbro tried to get the name for Crasher, but it did not clear so they went with Fracture. Works for me!

    Yeah, Fitor was a sort of conehead. You do mean this guy, right:

    He would probably be an ideal repaint of Ramjet. I'm not worried if he gets a different name, though. Fitor is not the greatest name ever.
