    I notice the windshield can hinge inward... wonder if that's for any reason other than possble breakage prevention.

    Well, it folds inward in robot mode. Not much, but it definitely sits more folded up on the chest that it does in car mode.

    Damn- the cannons really complete this guy's look. I feel bad about coldshouldering him on the podcast now. :lol  But dammit, Scalpel is a spotlight snatcher.

    A simple, yet effective and - in both modes - cool looking little toy. Another Scout bought - these are much better then all the official in-the-movie toys put together, IMHO.

    The teal colored arms/legs are horrid, though. But, I'll get him to repaint him as Classics Ruckus anyway, with the dune buggy alt mode and the 'pop-up' shoulder cannons, he's a dead-ringer for that G1 Triggercon: Ruckus

    With Crankcase existing as a redeco of Cybertron Red Alert, I now only need a Classics Windsweeper... Hmm, maybe Energon Starscream would work with his pop-up weapons?

    Very nice Scout. I can see myself buying it. I'd love a beachcomber repaint of him.

    I really like this guy. He's not totally unique or anything like Scalpel is-but I think that's why I like him. He's just a typical Transformer.

    Also, dune buggy mode and massive cannons.

    yeah something not right about that. It kinda gave a feeling that future transformers would follow what hasbro did to Marvel Universe figures, 3 3/4 inches. Scouts would become the main lines replacing deluxes and so on and so forth.

    on a related note, this guy is sweet!

    I really hope they do NOT do the whole scout class replacing the deluxe class thing. That would really suck @#$!!!! I like the deluxe class, always have. Now if Walmart could just drop the price back to 9.99, my life would be better. And yes, this one is sweet. Nice design.

    lol "Dead-runner" heheheh!

    i like this little guy. i haven't thought much about the scouts, but i DO like what i've seen.

    since there are three leaders, two voyagers, and a butt-load of deluxes on my list... i'm finding it hard to find a place for these little buggers... but damn they really are nice small figures.

    still want deluxe jolt... any word on him, or is he still just a FAB?

    He reminds me a bit of Hound, only with smaller feet. A lot of the parts are in similar areas.

    So because of that I'll own my very first Scout :)
