    Nice box art, and the comic looks great, it's just a shame I don't like the figure that much.

    Ditto that. I love the character, and the art rocks, but that mold is soooo bad.

    Jesus Christ that is absolutely hideous.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    Pretty! It's unorthodox to present the character in vehicle mode for the box art... especially with a background environment and without an accompanying robot mode pic. I like it! It really showcases the vehicle mode and gives it personality. Fun that he is depicted prowling the back-alleys, too.... prowling the back alleys in his inconspicuous bright teal flamin' paint job. :) 

    I'm looking forward to this little guy, mediocre base mold notwithstanding.

    I'll buy one to keep MISB, maybe. I'm not a fan of the mold, but it does look cool. Hopefully the Seacons set looks just as good.

    I always hated how box-art could make such a crappy toy look good. Nightbeat's alt mode already looked pretty good, but if the toy looked like the box-art I'd definately buy it.

    I'd like to see them make an Animated style Nightbeat by repainting Animated Jazz and giving it a new head sculpt.

    Great box and box art. But that's expected from Funpub.

    So ... when was it that preorders were going to go live?

    Now that is a GREAT idea. That mold is just cool enough for Nightbeat.

    EDIT: And hey, they're both Porsche-based characters, originally, so there is a certain logic.

    I'd buy that.

    I'd like to know this also.

    I've been a big fan of the TFCC boxes since day 1. No exception here. Nice surprise with the vehicle mode boxart though.

    Oh hell yes. After seeing Cyclonus at BotCon, I'd say Nightbeat (with transforming headmaster) would be a perfect addition.
