    Just going to quote myself from the other thread:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-news-rumors/189051-possible-new-tf2-toy-images-9.html

    It's not lame, just very simplistic.

    So that confirms the robot mode isn't fan art.

    I wonder what his name will be.

    So how did Hot Wheels get to be part of the Transformers Line,they are owned by
    Mattel,not Hasbro. Also what a rip that this won't transform hence the no seams and
    cracks.I will surely pass on this when it comes out,not paying $10 for a figure that
    isn't.What a let down Hasbro.

    I don't think this has anything to do with Hot Wheels, and I severley doubt it'll cost $10. It's most likely a happy meal toy of some sort, or some kind of cheap little thing they'll be doing for a majority of the characters (kinda like the whole Bumper Battlers thing, but smaller). That and it's not like this'll be the only toy made for this character. We'll more than likely be getting a Deluxe, repaints of that Deluxe, a FAB-type of figure, repaints of that figure, a Legends class figure, a couple of Robot Heroes, and then several other figures. It looks as though it might be about the size of a typical Scout class figure in alt-mode, if not smaller. The Autobot logo almost looks like a button of some kind, and I still think it looks like it has a pull-back feature built into it (something about the look of the tires gives me that feeling).

    How do you know the one figure is $10?

    Wait, how do you know it's $10?

    It's obviously a child's toy. And I mean the tiny children, so how is it a letdown? You're acting like this is the one and only TF2 toy.

    so this confirms that thats really the design, or could it be leaked? cause i like the design and all, esp. the head (WOAH!!!) but i cant stand the feet. it seems impractical unless he's going to be running at all times. and the toy will be tough to pose, when it comes out

    He has blades attached to both of his arms. Kinda like Prime's sword, but withought the glowing orange.

    Agreed. I'm 19, almost 20, and I'm actually interested in this thing. Reminds me of some of the pull back cars I had as a child. I think it'll be interesting to see some of the other characters like this. I'm almost surprised that Bumblebee wasn't the first one of these things we saw. You just know he'll be getting at least one of these things dedicated to him.

    I personally think that he actually does have feet, they just fold up so he can travel around at high speeds in bot-mode when he wants to. The design sketch we saw is most likely his battle-mode.

    Awesome. It's probably a kiddie toy or something, or maybe it's an early design or concept for the deluxe toy, they just haven't worked the robot in? Unlikely, just a thought.

    Edit: I'd say never mind. I'm pretty sure it's a just a car. A pull-back, happy meal prize, or something.

    Love that we have confirmation that the art we saw is real. I dig the head design on this guy a lot, personally don't care who he ends up being. That car is just a new money maker for Hasbro. Easy to make probably sell for pretty cheap that mean more parents will buy it for kids cuz it has TF written on it

    Awesome, glad to finally have some confirmation on that guy, and our first look at a new bot for the movie.

    As for who it is...I've no idea o_O

    Only thing I can think about is that "Wheels" listing, because of the feet. So it's either Wheelie or Wheeljack.

    Wheeljack.
