    Has anyone heard anything about a main line figure of the Driller? Possibly a Leader or Supreme class?

    I think they could really do something cool with the Driller character (toy-wise I mean). Honestly I hope they do, and I hope it's not as kiddy as ROTF Devastator was.

    Perhaps they'll make it as a Cyberverse playset in the same size class as the Ark?

    I'm sorry my reply is a rather dumb one, but I was so ready to post Drillnuts when I saw the thread title. Looks like I need to catch up with news as well :(

    Without having seen the movie or knowing a whole lot spoiler-wise, it seems like it would make sense to release it as a Decepticon counterpoint to the Cyberverse Ark, with a Shockwave figure.

    Personally I don't want to see a Driller in ANY size class. I have this creepy feeling that it would somehow end up like the abomination that was Energon Alpha Q. *shudders*

    What was wrong with Alpha Q? Sure it was one face short but that thing was pretty spot on in every other sense.

    Well, there is a whole bunch of different lines that have a "driller" figure in them; you know, the one that has flaming skulls wearing sunglasses on its arm shields and a ridiculously huge drill...

    Oh, we're talking about the Driller thing from the Transformers movie? Er, never mind then. I honestly don't think we'll be getting a toy of that thing. Optimus has already taken up the Supreme Class slot with the butterfly trailer.

    I'm not sure Hastak may do it, but I do like the idea of it being the Ark counterpart. Seeing it as a display piece like a diorama with OP vs Shocky is more probable.

    If it doesn't happen, we can always make our own out of pipe-cleaners & a vacuum hose! :D

    I can only see Hasbro making a Driller as a Cyberverse playset, which would be very cool!
