    Hey Guys. Does anyone know if there are plans to release the other Transformer Movie robots in the Robot Replicas? I know alot of people didn't care for them, but I thought they were pretty cool and would love to see the other characters made.

    Not that we know of. Personally, I hope they make a Brawl RR and a Ratchet RR.

    We've not seen any information about more RRs after the initial six.

    I like them too, and they seem to be selling, although I'd imagine they might not if there was anything else on the shelves right now.

    Incorrect sir!

    There's a Battle Damage Prime/Megatron exclusive two pack.

    I wanna love 'em, 'cause I LOVE my Revoltechs, but I've heard the poseabiity is a little rough on account of the sculpts. I imagine I'll end up grabbing a few as a consolation prize after a failed hunt at some point.

    I think he means the initial six characters. ie. noone like Ratchet or Brawl have been confirmed or mentioned.

    I personally hate RRs. They're un-poseable, underpainted and poorly sculpted peices of crap. Now Revoltechs, those are something.

    A small pet peeve about the Movie Replicas. I really like them, but they aren't realy replicas. Modern day Action Masters. Happy to read about the two-pack!

    I didn´t like them, until my girlfriend gave a RR bumblebee, it's so cool, poseable and definately durable since its made with soft plastic and it can't break so easily, I'll try to get thm all.

    Yup. I'm aware of the 2-pack, but should have mentioned it in my post for the sake of clarity.

    I do agree they didn't live up to expectations, and the way some of the joints that DON'T move leave you scratching your head... if only we hadn't held Revoltech in our hands before RRs came along.
    :lol

    Yeah, they're Action Masters, but I figured that was why they went with 'Robot Replicas.' I wish they'd been much cooler then they are--and much bigger, woulda loved some 12-inchers and in scale with each other. That would have given us a great balance toy-wise for the movie aesthetic.

    12-inchers? Agreed! That would have been awesome! Sadly a lot more money too.:scalper

    I got the robot replicas optimus prime about three weeks ago and i got to say i like it but not as much. when i open him i was mess around to come up with some cool poses but it kind of hard when theirs area that are covered. another thing i don't like is the lack or at least paint that don't go there. there are some paint that i did not see in the movie like the green in the back of optimus foot. the last thing i don't like about these is the design if him, he is base more on the first pre-production art that was seen on the net not the actual final design that we saw in the movie. but all that a side i still like, all i did in my part is repainting the grey areas with dry brushing and he looks much better. i hope they release the autobots and the other decepeticon sson. :cool:

    I was talking to Bill at Hasbro's booth at BC this year and asked him if they had an Ironhide planned. He got this depressed look on his face and said "no." T_T
