    Heavytread looks good. Skyhammer and Undertow seem decent enough, but don't grab my attention.

    Is it just me or do the minicons seem to be getting worse alt modes?

    We've seen the tank and jet, but these are clearer images of them. Also, Spastic? Really? Undertow still looks good, as does Skyhammer and Heavytread (also known to me as NotBrawl).

    I'll probably be picking all of these up. Still on the fence about Salvage and Spastic (Great name, BTW. :lol ), though.

    It's nice to see the name Bomb-Burst in use. Hopefully it means a Generations or RTS release (Scourge remold?)

    Well I don't think they'll have any competition for rights to the name Spastic.

    I really, REALLY want that tank repainted as Guzzle. Make it so, Hasbro!

    If they ever use the name Guzzle again, it's got to be for an SUV.

    These photos might have sold me on Skyhammer. Undertow and Waterlog's bronze plastic give me pause but I'll still buy em. I appreciate the the Dragstrip homage in Spastic but his combined mode is kinda boring.

    I had no idea that Heavytread was an Autobot until I saw these pics. I think I just assumed he was a Con. I had him and Skyhammer's factions backwards. Also, Skyhammer was an Autobot in G1 so maybe that threw me off as well.

    But I agree. He's totally Guzzle! :)

    Cool, Heavytread reminds me ever-so-slightly of the Super Gobot Defendor.

    "Spastic"?

    Anyway, definite pass on the Stunticons and Mudslinger repaint. The new mold 2-pack figures look nice, though.

    If I ever see Heavytread at retail, I'll get him, and he'll be my Classics Brawl. Not sure what I'll do with his minicon though, lol.

    Undertow still looks good. If I see him, I'll probably get him, and kitbash him into Seaspray (makes sense to me). Also not sure what I'll do with his minicon either.

    Oo. "Spastic" is not going to go down well in the UK. I suspect a name change is coming.

    Why on earth would Hasbro name it "Spastic"? That's just... wow. :lol

    I can't believe they called it "spastic". I take it the word doesn't have the same use over in the US?

    Spastic usually just means over-reacting, overly nervous, anxious, etc. whenever I've heard it being used. I had no idea before yesterday that the word had other connotations.

    Er, I just checked my calendar and it's definitely not April 1st, so I'm slightly confused. That can't be the real name can it? SURELY that is photoshopped or something leaked as a joke???

    There is no way, in a million years that they will ever release a Transformer called "Spastic". It's the same as naming him "Autism", "Thalidomide", "Anorexia" or "Tourettes"???

    That is pretty fucked up.

    I'm hoping for a Manta Ray repaint from Undertow for my G2 shelf.

    Repeated for truth. This is clearly a legitimate difference between US English and UK English. To everyone freaking out: yes it's clearly a mistake, and the item either won't get released in the UK or will get a name change.
