    That....actually looks half decent. I'm not into movie toys, but I'll keep an eye on their progress. Given the sketchy QC on Powerglide, I'm a bit leery though

    I'm not a movies fan and will not buy this but I think its awesome their making this. Hopefully it has enough demand to pay for their investment costs.

    There might be a problem in sales, considering that most older people willing to import overseas imports for pay 3rd party prices are G1-leaning. Sure a Leader Blackout would sell well to the kiddies if it was in Toys R Us for $60, but importing it overseas from a third party at what it's likely to sell for? Maybe not so many people would want it.

    Just goes to show what the collectors want - G1. People would be much happier if this was a Headmaster citybot who turned into a scorpion (Scorponok) and a Micromaster jet (Blackout).

    Oh it's only Plasticard slapped together - but the Galvatron did progress and get a bit better over time.

    So I hope they take some feedback and improve it where possible before releasing it.

    So let me guess. This will never hit the stores and it'll be around $100 if not more. Order online only...

    as a major advocator for a leader class blackout, i gotta say.... this thing, while not perfect, dose look pretty dam good for what they could work with. aside from the legs, if they can make it that accurate to the CGI model, make it stand up, and make it turn into a very realistic looking pave low, im pretty much 100,000,000,000% sold on this. while it is dissapointing that hasbro could not jump on this back in 2007 or even 2009 with a "grindor", it dose make me feel very happy that a third party has stepped in to give a LOT of fans what they want: a leader class toy of a movie character who deserved it more than any other. :thumb
