    FWIW, it's a real Lambo concept design...kinda like Movie Sideswipe is a concept 'Vette design, and how BB was a concept design until they actually made it.

    I hope Wildrider's wheels can be pushed in while in car mode. Other than that, I have no issues with him.

    No it's not. Movie Sideswipe and Concept BB actually exist as real, full-size cars. Wildrider does not. It is a MODEL, about 3 feet long. This is it, and the designer of it:

    That's the only one ever built, and only one that ever will be built.

    It's not some concept car Lambo designed and drove around to car shows. It's a MODEL that an engineering student designed, and got permission from Lambo to stick their logo on the hood. It's no more real than if I sculpted a model car from clay, and called it a "Ferrari Superawesomeus". Ferarri had nothing to do with it, and it's not an actual working car.

    Every single photo ever of that car, is actually of that very model there sitting on that table, and/or photoshop.

    The Lamborghini Bravo was a concept car. There was one built. This is a very fancy model made by someone who doesn't work for Lambo. There's a reason this car isn't listed at http://www.lambocars.com/prototypes/

    Then again, Animated Wildrider was Lockdown.

    Chalk it up to his insane personality, I guess. Maybe the dude scans a production Lamborghini at first, decides he wants something a little more "wild", and performs some mods. Whatever.

    If you're going to be anal retentive about the car makes, then sure, it might be a bit jarring.

    But for the laymen here who just like cool-looking car alt-modes and are totally okay with Hasbro's usual "similar to but legally distinct from" car models, it's not going to be a huge sticking point.

    My first attempt at a digibash I've never done this before so be kind. Thanks to Tony for the high res images and Cheebs for the quick photoshop lesson. I made this into a background I'll have to host it at another site to get the full size image.

    This a thousand times over. I have a G1 Menasor that I love to pieces. I love that FP is giving them a modern update. Whether the alt modes are real or just concept art, doesn't bother me one bit.

    :lol  I may be psychotic enough to buy 3 sets, one for each mode!

    ^This. I'm not bothered about how rooted in reality the alt modes are, that's what Alternators were for. As long as they look at cool as what we have seen so far then I am in!

    I do hope they redo the tires on them so they don't look like offroaders.

    I'll get you the most well done steak you've ever had... I mean the most cooked steak... or rather ... ah you'll get a piece of shoe leather and like it, here's the A1!

    :lol  The wife has already promised a Murder-Death-Kill if I pre-order the first two before she has a chance to get them for me for Christmas.

    So that gets me up to two :p

    Have her take pics of your reaction when they put up the Motor Master pics.

    I personally can't wait to see how they do Drag Strip.

    I think I'm going down the slippery slopes here, but I can totally see myself finishing up Hercules (just two more to go), preordering the FP Menasor, then say Oh to the hell with it and buy the Uranus/NOT Superion after all is said and done. You only live once so I don't want to lie on my deathbed wondering why I passed on these awesome 3rd Party combiners. Now if only they'll come out with a Predaking my life'll be complete. :D
