    I am OK if he is about the same height as BC Warpath.

    Looks pretty good. If he's cheap and bigger than Glider, I'll consider it.

    TFSource has it for $79.99 up for preorder. If this was the Price Is Right...you'd be the next contestant coming down!

    Yeah... Tfsource. Price gougers.

    Brawny is $79.99 plus $7 shipping.

    $65 from netclow.

    Who's going down again? (I'd still be closest without going over but, whatever)

    Yeah, me too. In some episodes of the cartoon he was as tall as a regular carbot, in others he was closer to Bumblebee. Everything in that range is fine. This guy looks good. So long, XTB Glider!

    Bah, that's too much for this guy.


    If I get him, it'll be from China I guess.

    I would have also preferred 5" bot size instead of 6", similar to Bumblebee / FT Seaspray / BC Grump. But it is what it is i guess. Apparently due in August.

    Really? Where did you learn this? If true I'd be happy on the one hand but pressed on the other what with Terminus Part A dropping in that same time frame. I'm always impatient to get a long anticipated figure but it really would be something startling if Powerglide were so close to release.

    I'm sticking with xtransbots glider - just the right size to fit with the other 3p minibots and doesn't look a whole lot different from this one.

    Thanks. If RK was mentioned above I missed it. Haven't ordered from them or visited their site in a while. Seems as likely to be a placeholder date as anything else but if he does drop that soon I'll be ready.

    I really like this, it looks similar to the Jizai/X-TB design but overall much cleaner. I know sizewise Powerglide was depicted all over the place, but carbot size does seem a little excessive. Nevertheless, a probable buy from me!

    Yeah, i feel the same. Thing is, with Seaspray, there is like 4 companies making it, and all different size, and only FT is confirmed to be small size, and KFC is a maybe (i would assume they get it right here). In this case, only DX9 seems to really be moving forward with this, and although the size of bot mode is not taller than i was hoping for, the mold itself looks very good at this point, and i know their quality should be good. Really, Powerglide and Cliffjumper are my current top wants after Arcee. Also, it would be nice getting someone else's beachcomber than the XTB version.

    Technically no...coming on down doesn't involve any bidding or pricing games. Plus he went over. :) 

    Interesting that this is $80. I really did think this would have been cheaper.

    I for one am happy to see Powerglide getting some love.

    He looks spot on and perfect. not a single gripe.

    His height is perfect as well.

    I'm sorry TB, but maybe they passed because it's horrible? UGGH.

    This PG is MINE. No way I'm paying retail for it though, this is ebay $15 off material. No rush.
