    I dunno if it is news, but Boltax's Disciples just did a review on these two:

    Disciples of Boltax

    They are larger sized then regular Robot Heroes, and IMHO, look awesome! Plus, I think this is pretty much the first Scorponok figure ever to accurately reproduce his 'normal' face shown in the Marvel comics and the Rebirth, as in Headmasters his face was toy-accurate (sadly).

    Boltax also confirms a G1 Wheeljack vs. Reflector and BM Optimus Primal vs. Jetstorm pack being advertised on the back of their card!

    Bah, how'd he get a hold of these!? I think it's highly unlikely we'll be getting these this year, what with all the other Universe RHs cancelled...

    Oh. F*ck. YES!

    I have voiced my wish for a RH Reflector set MANY times, so this is beyond awesome news. Wow. Maybe the other wish of a Constructicon 6-pack set one of these days isn't such a pipe dream afterall.

    A post for figures I haven't heard of being in production dated April 1st? Seriously doubt it.

    I noticed the date, too. But then how do you explain the pics of the toys?

    Photoshopped? Unique sculpts? They look WAAAY too different to be made from the Heroes of Cybertron line.

    Besides, didn't Hasbro tell us already that they plan to make larger sized RHs?

    Uh, he made them himself? People do that y'know, the 'urban' toys market for weird pvc figures made in sheds is huge.

    Probably customs. Don't get me wrong, I would freaking LOVE to see those figures on a shelf in TRU or Wal-mart just waiting to come home with me, but my BS meter is high. If they end up being actual upcoming releases I will run naked through the streets with joy.

    I'm tempted to say its an April fools I mean so far most robot heroes are in that "I'm taking a dump" pose but these guys don't seem to have that same dynamic look

    I dunno...they look like am ix of photoshop and custom made figures. Could be wrong, but as was said, the likely hood that no one else even heard about these and yet he has them in hand? Doubtful.

    edit:

    that too. The heroes stuff usually has that one dynamic pose that works where as these look like tiny action figures.

    Ahh shit, you're right about it just being another lame April Fool's joke. A little embarrassed that I missed that, but I figured all the pranks were done with by now.

    Excitement retracted.

    HINT: Check the first letter of every paragraph.

    They're very nice customs and Scorponok I'd cut a hand off to get... not my own hand, of course, but digits will be lost to obtain it.

    Ok, in case any of us were still wondering if this is real, this quote from the review should seal it.

    "Scorponok has the opposite problem—he's got too many different colors going on"

    When has Hasbro ever put too many paint apps on a figure?

    Also here is this

    "In my opinion, you'd be a complete fool not to buy this set."

    note use of the word fool, a clue that this is sadly just a joke.

    Honestly, I hate jokes that just disappoint fans.

    Or you could do that too...nice catch.

    Darn.Then this will go down in history like the fake G2-style Botcon comic, which was much better then the actual Shattered Glass comic... :( 

    I still cannot believe how someone can make such good customs from scratch. I mean, they are awesomely sculpted, even the faces, very detailed. Most Kitbashers use some figure as a basis and only resculpt parts of the body.

    Maybe they were printed in a 3D printer? Which would be great 'cause then they could be replicated...
