    Everyone is goin crazy over windcharger, but there no love for poor rumble. im sure thousands of them are just sitting in warehouses, collecting dust.
    Im sure they could find a way to release him and the other cancelled scouts.
    why dont they just repack them as DOTM figs later in the line? or sell them at botcon, anything!

    I don't think Rumble is even being mass produced, or there would be solicitations for him.

    Doesn't mean it won't ever happen, just not right now.

    Right now, United is the only way to secure either.

    hmmm, may look into it so, but 50 quid for two scouts will definately not be spent by me

    I don't think they're going to let this mold go to waste, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see Frenzy in the near future. But, I don't really expect to see a directly repackaged Rumble any time soon.

    Hasbro never wastes a mold. Never. We'll see Rumble, Frenzy, and Windcharger (though maybe in mold-only) somewhere else down the line.

    Exactly. This is why the last waves of most lines are all repaints.

    if they go the way of the cancelled target movie scouts...the chinese will eventually find them in a warehouse and throw them out for auction on their websites...then the mass buying /scalping will begin in earnest and folks mass buy and try to charge 5 times what they paid for them off the chinese auction sites....

    Well for starters, Frenzy was never announced. Rumble being cancelled can easily be inferred by the fact that there are zero solicitations for him.

    I was really looking foward to both Rumble and Downshift.

    I hate the fact Rumble is gonna cost em a arm and a leg. I hope Hasbro releases their own 2 pack of Rumble and Frenzy. Hell maybe Downshift and Bodyblock two pack would be awesome as well.

    I'm glad this is the last movie, maybe good figures/lines will stop getting shitcanned so easy. Plus this batch blows except four-five tops.

    For those who say Hasbro never wastes a mold, where is Blackout, Wingblade Prime (yea same base figure), and the scuba bumblebee from animated. Don't get me wrong, I want F/R to see release, but at this point I think most of us have lost hope in getting a domestic release of these animated figs.

    Not to mention Aveo Swerve...4 years since the first movie, and no effort to mass-release that one. Or really, most of the later Alternators. The argument that Hasbro doesn't waste molds is complete crap.

    That said, I hope we get both cassettes separately, 2 autobot repaints, Windcharger, Tailgate, and another couple of each in a mid-movie repaint line with a minor paint gimic a-la the fugly blue from the Allspark power sub-line.

    This is like the Mudbuster Bulkhead,Thundercracker, thing. People presume that since we've seen one or two in package, there's a production run just waiting for a retailer to order.

    I doubt Hasbro would waste storage space, materials, labor, on a production run when they don't know if any retailer actually wants it.

    I want Rumble and Bodyblock. I'm getting the Thuggers ,so Rumble I can even wait on. But since I got Deep Dive, who is a really amazing repaint, I really want to get my hands on Bodyblock.
