    Funny story I heard a RUMOR (Probably not true) about the Mountain Dew bot being made into a figure..Since we have a Pepsi Prime why not the Mountain Dew bot??? After all they are BOTH made by Pepsi

    I posted a thread about this with a pic of the bot and it vanished?

    Am I missing something?

    It would be pretty sweet if they did release the MD bot. The chances of that are pretty low although there was the Pepsi prime you mentioned.

    There may be a chance.

    But pepsi prime was a re-paint. But if they made a dew bot they would have to make a new mold. Unless they re-molded the payload figure (that to much re-molding hasbro will ever do IMO).
    But as long as they know people want it and are willing to pay money for it I could see them doing it in the future.

    At the last Botcon, Hasbro panel members mentioned about making figures that we would like.

    Someone voiced out "Dewbot" and there was a big roar of YES! from most people there.

    As much as I'd like to see a Dew-bot TF, especiall if it was a Deluxe sized figure, I honestly won't be surprised if we never see one. I'm more of a Coke supporter, so even if they do make one, I'll probably end up kitbashing it into a Coke machine :D .

    Isn't the Dew Bot from the movie not the true Dew-Bot? I remember reading somewhere that it was being called Dispensor?

    Can you imagine all the repaints there could be?! Pepsi-bot, Sprite-bot... heck maybe even a sexy Fanta-bot!

    Mountain dew probably wants to ride out their Halo wave before moving onto tformers anyways. :)

    As I understand it, that wouldn't be possible, because Fanta is associated with Coke, not Pepsi.

    We never got Signal Lancer, so I doubt we will get Dispensor. Regardless of the fan outcry.

    Only the flatbed was new, the rest was just the rgular Convoy trailer.

    Besides, I think making part of a new trailer and making a whole new figure are two totaly different things.



    Still think Nokia-Bot should take priority over Dew-bot.

    I'd buy both Nokia-Bot and Dew-Bot in a heartbeat.

    Your thread and its first post just asked if there was going to be a Dewbot/Dispensor figure made. You made no mention of it being a rumor at the time, and whatever rumored facts you could present were probably assumed to be more akin to HE TELL ME than reliable information that can end up on the frontpage. I didn't see the thread after my first post, but I imagine it was that lack of relevance that got it deleted.

    I'd certainly love one, but I don't see it happening. An idea like that has about as much chance as the Leader Class versions of nearly everyone that various people keep requesting in vain.

    I was wondering the same thing...along with that SUV that used it's steering wheel to attack that girl's face. And what was that other thing that guy was carrying? A pc? I guess we're just to assume that they got destroyed.
