    Anyone here know if there's any plans to do a movie accurate Jolt with the proper head sculpt? I emailed Hasbro this morning and mentioned the differences, specially pointing out the fact that the deluxe Jolt we have now is modeled after an early Jolt concept and not the final movie version. Anyone else email them about this? I also suggested maybe a HA Jolt.

    Could you say some of the differences, please?

    I'm not saying that there are none, I'm sure you're right, but the only difference I noticed between the toy and the movie robot is that the movie version has some more dark blue on the torso.

    The Head On The Toy Is Based On Concept Art, Not The Final Movie Version.

    Also It Would Be Cool If We Got A HA Jolt With Someone Like Graham

    I don't think we'll get a new one, maybe a retooled head for TF3, but like Sage o' G-fruit said, we're lucky we got one at all. Personally, I actually prefer the look of the toy's head, and think it would be interesting to see them change the on-screen version to that design for TF3. It wouldn't be hard to get away with, as he wasn't seen on screen all that much. I just hope he doesn't get thrown into the background again, due to the inevitable new characters.

    A HA Jolt would be great, imo, and it's something I would definitely buy. I wold expect he would probably come with Leo if they did make him. Hopefully the HA subline doesn't end with Mudflap,Barricade, and the blue Sideswipe repaint. Would be nice if it was a size class that they keep for TF3's toy line.

    Oh and I wouldn't expect to get an actual answer from Hasbro about it. Oh, you'll get an answer, but it'll be full of legal-ese, and not actually go anywhere near answering your question.

    Blue Sideswipe would actually really hurt Jolt's chances of reaching the HA line. What parent is gonna buy their kid another big blue car in the same exact line? Ditto if both of them arrive late in the line.

    Good point, though I think that if they spaced them out well enough, they could pull it off. Especially if they keep doing HA figures during TF3's toy line. It'll be interesting to see who, if anybody, gets released in the same wave as the Sideswipe repaint. With the way the next couple of waves of the subline look, it'll most likely be just a re-release of one of the other figures, or if we're lucky, it'll be another repaint.

    Well, repaints were inevitable, in fact, I'm a little surprised there's only one we've heard of so far. They might as well make the repaint of Sideswipe a homage the fan's have been screaming for ever since we heard that the Corvette concept car was going to be used in RotF. It'll still most likely be called Sideswipe, and probably won't have the flames, but it'll still work as a Tracks homage.

    The only time he is really in the movie is in the Autobot garage, airfiedl after Prime died, and in the shocking part at the end right?

    Nah. Now that people have the DVD, they're noticing that he's in the background in a few scenes. You can see him fighting in the desert battle.

    We are indeed lucky we got Jolt the (mute) Volt, but a HA wouldn't hurt (well, it would hurt my wallet but that's not the point).

    Yeah but as far as I can tell, it's only that forehead spear that differs the most. But I haven't froze, zoomed in, scrutinized all that much.

    AFAICT, the only difference is teh head crest sits back on teh head in teh movie, but on the toy it points up.

    Just pretend it's "battle mode" Jolt head. The head's aren't different enough to warrant an all-new figure in the same class.

    I'd assume that if they don't mind a majot character like Megatron being based off conept art, I highly doubt they'll ever think twice about someone as insignificant as Jolt
