    Incinerator...interesting. Maybe Blackout isn't Blackout anymore, or they're just using an old name for the toy listing. I wouldn't mind calling him Incinerator...he reminds me of BW Inferno.

    Hopefully, these Tits don't suck.

    So are these the 3" Titaniums? I'm guessing based off the price, which is about $12 CAN when converted, which is VERY high for a 3" figure, but very cheap for the 6" transforming ones. For some reason I'm leaning towards 3" scale.

    Any ideas?

    Oh, as for Incinerator, I'm still a little foggy over who's who in the flick. Brawl is the squad car, I think, Devastator is the construction crane, and the last one causing me confusion is the Incinerator/Blackout character. Are they the same character, or two different? If they're the same, I'd prefer Blackout, myself.

    Last we heard...

    Barricade = Decepticon Cop Car. Previously known as Brawl.
    Brawl = Decepticon Tank. Previously known as Devestator
    Blackout = Decepticon Helicopter. Previously known as Incinerator, Vortex and Grimlock.

    There is no crane. Some people believe there is after seeing set photos with a crane that was used for stunt work.

    Ah, thanks for clearing that up. But wasn't there a video from filming, where Shia was screaming for his life from some construction vehicle? He was on the hood of a car, and the crane of a backhoe I think kept coming down crushing the car? Was this a Transformers or....

    one of those non-sentient machines coming to life from the allspark?

    I think the thing you're referring to was just a physical prop for the actor to react to.

    In the final film that space will be filled with a CGI robot.

    I'd say 3". Forbidden Planet price gouges like hell; I remember seeing a God Ginrai reissue in there, in terrible condition, for £120.

    or maybe they are thinking of bonecrusher, his mine clearer alt mode looks pretty much like a constructicon?

    and also

    YES

    forbidden planet is VERY expensive

    BUT

    try going into their london store, its worth the prices just for the experience, from the real-size predator bust staring you in the eye as you walk in the door to the huge double-sided glass cabinet running half the length of the shop full to bursting point with busts, a little thin on the ground wiht TF stuff (although a mate of mine has bought a fari whack of hardhero TF busts from there) but still if anyone in the UK hasnt been there then GO, especially if you like marvel...)

    These could be the 3" class, but they also could be a new size class entirely. Curious to see a release date of January 15.

    Neat. I was hoping there'd be more 3 inchers.

    Please don't tell me that's how they're going to spell Incinirator (should be Incinerator)....I hate when they try to get "cute" with names.

    I wonder if these are going to be considered part of the current line, If so my set of 3 inch Titaniums will be incomplete because I'm not buying those. :cry

    Ha Draven, know what you mean bout the inflated prices in Forbidden Planet. My Belfast one is bad enough but I remember seeing the God Ginrai Reissue for £110 after buying it for £20 delivered from hlj 6 months previous. Still the time I was there Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were doing a signing, yet still i didnt queue up cos I was a hungover bear:(

    Given the fairly simplistic style of the 6inchers so far I'd be stunned to see them make the movie designs work for TFing figs that style.

    (I hope movie toys don't monopolize EVERYTHING next year... I dream of Tit. Jhiaxus, Scrounge, and Devcon...sigh)

    If there's a Tits Movie Megs, it should come with a warning.
