    That is one hideous picture.

    And yeah, it's pretty known. Although the spelling mistake on the Classics packaging that mixes up Astrotrain and Jetfire is pushing this into third place, with Dancin' Soundwave occupying top spot.

    What is this spelling mistake you speak of? I haven't read that one yet.....:rolleyes2 

    I just had a great idea (which I am sure others have had first): we need a "Dancing Soundwave" icon. It'd be freakin' sweet! Then, everytime someone posts stuff like this, we can throw it up and I think the majority of us will get the hint. We did it for tocas, so somebody make this one! It's a natural!

    What two TF's are pictured on the site now under the same listing? See the attached pic. They look familiar, but I can't put my finger on who they are...

    My eyes were rolling! I noticed that mistake right off when the pics were released. Stupid net and its inability to be subtle.

    As for those new bots...um...well, this is odd....one appears to be Universe Swerve (armada Blurr repaint):

    http://www.tfu.info/2004/Autobot/Swerve/swerve.htm

    but the paintjob is wrong....wtf? The other one? I dunno....an Actionmaster holding a Minicon? Confused....Nevermore?

    The other one is Swerve's Mini-Con Roadhandler

    Too late...

    But it's not, go read my post again, then click the tfu.info link and check out that pic on there. Then, look at the pic the other dude posted and then look at the box art on the one you posted. The box art seems to match the one from TRU, but the tfu.info one is painted differently....at least, it looks that way to me, it is more black than white in the non-red areas. WTF?!? Am I taking crazy pills?!?

    Thanks for the info. It was kind of confusing since they make both of them look like they are the same size in the pic!

    That's why Hasbro has the standard "products may vary" disclaimer on toys like TFs, Triformis. ;)

    The photo on TRU's website is a stock photo. Those are usually taken of early prototypes and might sport different colors than the final toy.

    Remember Alt Prowl with charcoal vs. baby blue colors?
