    I want a real Gnaw one day. I love quirky TFs, and he's definitely one of the originals.

    I would be more likely to keep it in shark mode than anything else, so this has zero impact.

    I still can't call it a shark. I like it, though, but seriously, a shark? That's not a shark. It has feet! And little arms! And big, green eyes on the top of it's head!

    My question is.. When will Hasbro or Takra/Tomy legal departments are going to go after iGear for reproducing Gnaw? There is some molding differences but still not enough. Also looking to the pictures of Shark Sentry the transformation looks the same.

    yes, but in different sizes, this looks pretty close to the original, if not a straight knock off, pretty risky to make IMO

    No interest. I'll give them a 'A' for effort; however, this isn't for me. I am perfectly content with my G1 Sharkticon.

    Ugh.. I hope they at least 2-pack these. I'd be thrilled with a 3-pack if they did a 3rd head sculpt.

    Autoscout packs are already in customers hands...

    nice head scupts but i think its possible has/tak could put this one to a stop because it put them on a slippery slope in reguards to future instancesof fighting dilberate knock offs
