    Yay! Finally, some good pics of the little guy :) 

    Shortround is absolutely beautiful. I love those colours and the huge claws. Hasbro has really outdone themselves with their exclusive molds (and repaints) this time around. Everything they've done has been a huge hit! And I think Shortround is going to be right up there with Downshift on my list of all-time favourite Hasbro exclusives!

    It's okay Razerwire, you're thread was still way more awesomer than this one *pats on the back*

    Man I love this figure, I can't wait for him and Repugnus to come out. Hasbro really knows how to make great basics! :thumbs2:

    Man, Repugnus is way uglier than I keep thinking he is.

    Bah He still looks like a Seaspray to me.

    And I still think of Repugnus as the Jack Bauer of the autobots

    "He has a personality as repellent as his looks -- been kicked out of the Autobots many times for insubordination only to be asked back since he's always willing to undertake missions too low-down and dirty for anyone else to consider. In robot mode, carries venom laser that slows cerebro impulses and paralyzes on impact. In creature mode, has infra-red and X-ray vision; can emit colors and stroboscopic effect with eyes. Claws contain chemical, electromagnetic and audio sensors; can rip through almost any substance."

    I'm curious as to why we're seeing the Decepticons taking on the water while we're not really seeing any Autobots. Think about it, for Arm/En/Cyb we've had the following ship Dcons:


    Tidal Wave
    Mirage
    Thunderblast
    Shortround


    and as for Autobots? well, there's part of Omega Supreme...other than that...we've got nothing

    Because Autobots aren't cool enough to get any naval power. :wink: 


    I like Shortrounds design. Hope I don't have much trouble finding him. If there really are any fans who simply refuse to by Hasbro, they're really missing out in this line.

    What's that little purple thing Shortround's picking on?

    Shortround's arms look weird but I still want him. Love Repugnes color scheme.

    All the fembots hate Shortround. He's all hands. :p 

    I'll be getting Shortround. Repugnus is a retina searing repaint of a mold I didn't like to begin with. He's a pass.

    IMO, Shortround is perhaps the best Alt mode basic in Cybertron for years.


    As for the Arms......... well I'll get used to it.

    I will agree that his alt-mode kicks all kinds of ass... I disagree that its the best alt-mode basic... I give THAT honor to Lugnutz/Roadstorm... its his main endearing quality, next to the character of the mold.

    I'm liking Shortround. The arms are wierd but I'm still going to repaint him as Seaspray for my collection. I'm not sure if I'm getting Repugnus though.
