    So, we finally got Neo G1 toys, War Within toys, and exclusive repaints, simply because, as a fan community, we begged for them. It's apparent now that our voice is heard.

    When are we gonna get Signal Lancer? I mean, he is, without a doubt, one of the coolest TFs ever designed, and there would be quite the market for him at the Hasbro Toy Shop. Fans worldwide were anticipating his transformation scene for pretty much the length of the entire series. I remember people drooling over the mere thought of a Singal Lancer toy back when that first 'behind the scenes' linart surfaced.

    So how do we go about getting one?

    Probably never. It was sort of a joke.

    Perhaps, but it was a joke everyone loved, it's perfect for marketing!

    Signal Lancer is great - and that seems to be a resoundingly popular opinion. What's funny is that if we were told, "Hey, the next line of TFs is going to include robots that turn into stoplights, phone booths, and miscellaneous items", the fanboy outcry of rage would have been deafening. For some reason though, everyone seems to love the little guy.

    I'm not terribly objective though - I'd buy TFs that turned into orange parking cones if they made them.

    I would kill for a real figure of him. You hear that, Hasbro; you guys got anyone you want put away, just make the figure. Thats the contract.

    I can't wait to see how well Omnus does with his kitbash of Signal Lancer. And I think it will be nice to see 2 of my old Transformers involved in a Kitbash, considering I have no talent at that sort of thing.

    It looks like he would have such a solid transformation too.
