    We already heard that there is going to be a new mold Deluxe DOTM Leadfoot, apparently he comes in a target exclusive 2- pack with a repainted Topspin (as said during Botcon). I'm just wondering if any of you already have Topspin but you are still going to get the 2-pack. I know I am, I'll just say Topspin is a clone made by the Decepticons to impersonate the real Topspin.

    I just hope for 2 things about the figure. First off, I hope he comes with a mech tech weapon that transforms into Steeljaws, just like the Human Alliance one (if not I just buy the Human Alliance figure take away the Steeljaws and sell Leadfoot by himself with the driver). Second, I hope it comes a week before my birthday, because it will take time to get to go across the state, so when it arrives on my birthday my parents will take me down the states for a birthday treat and I can buy it.

    He comes with Twin Twist, not Topspin. So it's another character.

    Also, it's Steeljaw. Singular.

    Who is Twin Twist? Is he a G1 character?

    And what do you mean Singular?

    Twin Twist is a Wrecker from G1, yeah. Also a character in the comics. And in your OP, you said "Steeljaws." The name is Steeljaw. It has no "s" at the end.

    I had Twin Twist as a kid. He was the one of two that pulled back and poped up on his feet. I had no idea he was a "wrecker"..is this a comic reference, or a slang term for something else?

    ok, now that everyone has corrected him...

    I think it's cool that the two names of this figure are Top Spin and Twin Twist. Granted, neither have anything to do with these car modes, but at least they used both the jumpstarters.

    well, Topspin and Twin Twist... were twins (or something like that) AND Wreckers, and they are somehow connecte (in TLSOTW, when one of them was damaged, the other too)
    and I think hasbro is repainting him from that mold just for being used for Topspin :p 
    and I want pictures soon!
    I want a deluxe Leadfoot, but as Target exclusives NEVER arrive to this country, I have to see them to contact somebody to make a preorder :p

    Seeing as I want Leadfoot, yes.

    I don't have Topspin but I plan to get him, reguardless of the two-pack repaint.

    This is what I would do for Leadfoot.

    Plan A, Go down to the States and get it.

    Plan B, Ask my friend who goes to the states once a week.

    Plan C, Wait to see if Zellers gets it, because they are a Canadian Target.

    Plan D, Ebay.

    Regretfully no. So I'm right here right now pacing around my room and there is now a big hole on my floor.

    I didn't get a good look at "Twin Twist", but it's either
    a) a typo
    b) a recolor
    c) a retool

    I'm hoping it's a retool of Topspin 'cause it'd be cool to have the Wrecker twins together for the movieline.
