    Nice find! All I think we've seen of this guy so far is blurry images from Australian toyfair and and one of the more recent Japanese conventions, now all we need is a decent look at his robot mode.

    Looks like The Fallen has some competition.

    Is Human Torch a repaint of Iron Man? Looks like it. Should be interesting to see how they pull off the flame look in 'bot mode.

    Wolverine looks good. I'll definitely be picking him up.

    They're both jets, but they're not redecos.

    And does wolverine come with spare tires or something?

    edit: after comparing the two, I don't really see how someone can think Torch is a redeco/remold of Iron Man.

    That's what they look like Silent Magnus, but I am not sure. I know Wolverine is "mine" my wife collects Wolverine, but he will sit with my guys, LOL

    He's a new mold. They're both mostly red jet's that transform, but that's where the similarities end. I'm curious as to how his bot-mode looks like, but I most likely won't get him anyways. Wolverine looks pretty good too, but if I get him, or pretty much any other of these figures, it'll be for TF kitbash fodder.

    Nah, I think that mold is too smal for the $15 price tag, but who knows...

    I was going to say that... the previews (ie, blurry photos) before made people think Torch was a redeco, but after seeing a clear picture the jet is obviously significantly different. That's a nice surprise.

    I'm pretty sure those are just Wolverine's normal tires... I would bet his vehicle mode was too tall to fit in the packaging, so they folded out his tires to shrink it down slightly. Wouldn't be the first time they packaged someone mid-transformation.

    My brain boggles that Hasbro thinks these are a good idea but poo-poos GIJoe transformers year after year... (and it's not that i think the Marvel ones are BAD per say, just a really random idea)

    At least they are better than the previous Marvel Transformers... well, the Marvel transforming vehicles done by another company. I think Iron Man is cool, partly because it makes sense... I can actually see Tony Stark building a giant Iron Man Mech that transformed into a jet. The rest... make no sense. Characters wouldn't fit in them (the most extreme being the Spidey-Bike... if it's a normal bike size he can ride, he wouldn't be able to fit in the bot mode to pilot it... unless it was just an armor shell, or a remote controlled bot). Yet, they still are cool in their own ways... and I will pick them up if any start looking really good.

    It's just too bad the Spidey-Bike is out of scale with the standard Spidey figures, AFAIK

    Oh, and yes, I think it's insane they won't do GI Joe transformers. How awesome would it be to have some in scale with the smaller figures? I don't collect GI Joes, but I would definitely pick some up for that!

    See Hasbro! It would get more crossover (no pun intended) collectors between the two lines!

    Like I've said before, I think a lot of the problem is no one outside America cares about GI Joe.

    when i sleep i dream happy dreams of a Deluxe Hound VAMP with Clutch mini-fig and back cannon that splits into 2 rifles. not really, but i have thought it out extensively and it'd be about the coolest thing ever aside from Don's Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime
