    Very nice. Frontpaged that for you.
    I'm tempted to pick this one up, it would fit in nicely with the Vehicons I think. Perhaps as a parallel universe Cycle Drone or something?

    Ewww... how, simple. (But what did you expect from a non-transformer transforming product?)

    And ugly. I pass.

    Wow. It's giving Kaneda's Bike and the GARLAND a run for their money.

    It does have one cool concept that I would like to see, robots that can be used as vehicles by humans.

    I can't decide if it fits into a vehicle catagory more like an ATV or a motorbike. It's probably meant to be more like an ATV. I think Yahama has one called the Banshee. I realize it's not meant to be exact to either, but since I have a special interest in motorbike TFs, it caught my eye as something to possibly watch for with the way the wheels are placed.

    I think its cool, GI Joe needs more Transforming Robots so im not going to nit-pick at the first one they make.

    The bike looks cool enough in both modes to me.
    Its not supposed to be an Autobot or Decepticon.

    I think the fact that Hasbro owns GI Joe and Transformers but they have never made a "GI Joe\Transformers" subline is a huge example of a missed revenue opportunity. (Although I want to see "Gung Ho with Hound" not Gung Ho driving a jeep that turns into a robot Gung Ho.)

    So is the name "Sigma Six" officially done? I think its odd that they tried to rebrand GI Joe anyway.

    It's a cool concept. I think with more practice and tweaking some areas it could turn out pretty cool.

    That thing looks like the nightmare child of a Vehicon and Armada. An absolute pass. Call me if they ever do a proper crossover.

    Hmm... not a brilliant first showing; can't believe it's taken this long for something like this to happen, though.

    I'm glad it's not Transformers branded, as it leaves room in the future for a true crossover.
