    So does that mean that we are not getting the three combining sister bikes then?
    they are only doing a toy for chromia and arcee?

    I think they meant that no prototype has been made yet and also why would they name her if they didn't have a toy planned for eventual release?

    that is what i did not understand...but if it takes about a year for something to be made and sent to market...the stuff for next year would be being designed right now....so i am thinking maybe they named the third bike since there are three in the movie but dropped the toy idea since they did not combine in the movie?...who knows...that is why i posted this....i am not wanting to read 599+ posts about that SDCC flareup post to see what is going on...

    Where did you read that?

    They are making a toy for her. She's rumored to be a remold/retool of one of the other bikes.

    There is no "official combination" of the three bikes.

    EDIT: I stand corrected. The news announcing her name as FlareUp said no toy is planned. Odd. Cuz that's not what I read during the live coverage. Now I'm just confused *shrugs*

    Well you really never know, They may surprise us and be lying and break one out at the last minute. Hasbro works in weird ways...literally.

    Supposedly, and it HAS been said in the past by Hasbro that the combined mode was canceled from the film, but they said the toys would. They even said the third bike would be a REPAINT of the Chromia mold!

    Oh and that too! If there is no "official combo" then that DOES mean their combined form does exist. If that's the case with the actual bike, how much do you wanna bet she is Chromia with swapped arms

    looking at that I would be Pissed if they didnt give her her own mold, but you take what you get I guess

    this could mean "no NEW mold" planned, since it's supposedly a redeco or retool.

    It's also possible that with Chromia (and Wheelie) selling so poorly (by comparison...) that they may have reconsidered repainting the figure...

    Compared to Bumblebee and Optimus though they all sell poorly, I actually dont see too many of C or W, usally just ravage and soundwave. so they cant be doin too bad.

    Wow, that combination mode must have been a mess then. Sounds like they made a good decision by omitting it.

    I don't think that's the reason, It's most likely because it wasn't in the movie so there was no reference for it.
    So simply.
    No refrence Image = People complaining that they don't think it looks "cool"

    I'm hoping for a third bike in the colors shown. Chromia is a pretty cool figure IMO. Alot of these figures are very different from whats been made so far. At first I wasnt sure about some of these ROTF figures, but now I'm starting to appreciate the uniqueness of the line. (some of the figures) I'll definitely be getting all 3 of the ladies. And I'll also enjoy wrapping them up together to make some kind of combined menage-a-bot. ***giggetty***

    I thought when I was reading the SDCC stuff that it did say Flareup would be a remold/recolor of Chromia. This is confusing now.

    I think that they should to a Repaint/remold of Arcee kuz Flareup looks alot more like Arcee than she does Chromia.

    at one point, i was waiting for RotF to be renamed Revenge of the Gestalts.

    even though i haven't bought the ladies, i am still fascinated by their combined mode.
    i feel this weird, Shiva vibe with it. so, yeah, am psyched to see it.

    No word on scrapper or hightower yet. So they could release flareup some time in 2010 with a deluxe constructicon.

    I'm glad its flareup. Better than firestar because its a more recent fan character. Also I think with marvel legends making a firestar figure there may have been licenseing issues.
