    bought him, I guess it's my chance to pick up both molds.

    Spoons homage, perhaps, but the odds of him actually being called Spoons were infinitesimally small.

    Road Rival Showdown will be one of the easiest Transformers purchases I'll have made in years. It's just so perfect.

    I'm a bit less sure about Windy City Chase, but it is a damn good set. I guess we can assume there's at least one more set, with the "Red Baron" Ransack as the Decepticon. Wonder who the Autobot will be.

    Nope! Sonar, the boat redeco, is a Decepticon and an individual release, part of a NEST-branded Scout wave. So it wouldn't be him.

    There's always a chance that "Baron von Ransack" is an individual release.

    Was hoping to pick up Spoons in a singlepack. Looks like I'll have a Beachcomber to sell off.

    LOVE to see the name Slapdash.

    Names are useless. They're not tactile things. To me, they'll alway be Wheelie, Spoons and...


    ...and...


    ...well hell, anything's better than Trenchmouth.

    It never really occurred to me that Hasbro actually named a Transformer with such a silly and inane name as Trenchmouth. I was too distracted by associating Windy City Chase's name with something totally unrelated, hahaha.

    It even has a motorcycle! You can't make this stuff up!

    Trenchmouth is obviously a reference to the way he talks. It has nothing to do with his alt mode, it has to do with his personality.

    it's a FINE name.

    I like the reuse of the name Slap Dash. It works for me. (Tho I'd still buy a Scout-sized Wheelie head for it and use it for my Classics shelf)

    Trenchmouth.... I think I can safely say that Hasbro has run out of ideas for good names. (Hell, Road Rocket would have worked just fine)

    Nice idea tho for the two-packs. If they release the Baron as a two-pack, I hope he comes with a Perceptor colored Scalpel.

    Yeah, I love the name Trenchmouth. He's one of those guys where every other word out of his mouth will be "slag".

    Both are great packs, looking forward to purchasing them. I'm guessing Target exclusives?

    Edit: The Ransack repaint is NOT GETTING A TWO-PACK, peoples. We've already seen him listed in the 2010 Scout Wave 2 assortment as Divebomb.

    I had a fanfiction character named Deadlift that happened to change into a forklift as well. I had considered repainting that mold into him. Kind of cool I'll have a Deadlift figure. Just wish they'd gotten the colors right;)  LONAC Web - Dead Lift

    Yeah, I totally went with the VERY obvious homage coloring. Had I done Beachcomber first I could have learned the proper name before the video. Oh well, I'm hardly infallible.
