    I found Sideswipe and the Fallen last night to complete my set, but haven't heard about any new ones.

    I was hoping for a substantial improvement over the TF1 RRs, but some of these are definitely below par articulation-wise for what you'd expect from a non-transforming figure - Ironhide and the Fallen in particular.

    That's not to say I wouldn't be lining up for Mixmaster, Rampage, or uber-size Devastator, though!

    We'll probably get some more, but it's hard to say who will get the RR treatment. I'll be surprised if they don't make a RR Mudflap, as they've already given us a RR Skids. Long Haul and some of the other Constructicons would be interesting, along with a Devastator. Would be really cool if they did a "Build-a-figure" type of thing with him. That way we could get a larger Devastator than if he were to be sold on his own, and in one piece, and it'll give people a reason to buy several RR figures, that they might have skipped over if not for the piece of Devs.

    ^Yeah, I would at least expect to get a Mudflap to go along with Skids. I would really like to see Rampage and Long Haul get figures as well. The Devastator idea is pretty cool!

    Seriously.... that's not a bad idea. I also like that Devastator idea as well.
    Just after playing the ROTF game my fav. has easily become Sideways.

    BAF is a cool idea, but I'd much rather have a 12" Devastator sold individually. It'd be much easier than buying a whole bunch of Robot Replicas.

    I think Hasbro should, with possibly the Classics reboot next year, release Robot Replicas from different franchises such as G1, Armada, or Beast Wars. They could also release larger-sized ones for characters like Tidal Wave and Optimal Optimus.

    Mudflap, Long Haul, Alice. Ahem, Hasbro, I have your next wave. :D 
    With the line going well into 2010, I'd be surprised if we didn't get at least 1 more wave, since they seem to be selling really well around here.

    I hope not. Put more focus on the transforming ones, because they are Transformers after all.

    Robot Replicas Jolt or GTFO.

    I'm sure we'll know in a couple of weeks, SDCC ahoy!

    I'd kill for a Robot Replicas Rampage. I's be bouncing him around my desk yelling "PTANG," like in the movie.

    "SAM WEEEWEEEKIEEEE."

    Maybe repaints from 1st movie line? Smokescreen, Cliffjumper, Recon Barricade? Starscream repaints?

    Hey! Maybe some with voice boxes with sound clips right from the movies!?

    Optimus Prime: "Bumblebee, stop lubricating the man!"

    Jazz: "What's cracking, little bitches?"

    I was thinking, has anyone taken a RR Skids, painted him orange, and put the Deluxe Mudflap head on it to make a custom Mudflap? Hopefully we'll be getting a RR of him, but just in case we don't, would this be a good idea?

    Now that you have said it, Hasbro will see this and take the easy way out just do that instead of a new mold. :crazy:

    Damnit, what have I done?! Oh well, at least we would get one at all, but they'd have to switch his hands, since his abnormally large hand is his left, not the right. I just need to keep my mouth shut.

    It is a good idea for a kitbash, though.
