    that looks pretty good from what i can make out.

    I'm still really bummed though about just discovering in the last couple days that the new HA figs are scaled smaller then the ROTF ones, that's just week sauce...

    Well I guess Pinpointer had to team up with somebody else, given the fact that Leadfoot is off being a Wrecker now...

    out of all of the basic human alliance figs, tail pip has the most promise...it's got a target master, the secondary mode makes it a flying bike. What's not to "have high expectations"?

    There are still 30$ bigger HA figures.

    Getting him when he comes out which shouldn't be long.

    Flak is probably this from the Wal-mart computer list dug up a few months back.

    Truckloads of DotM Toys in Walmart's Computers! - alt.toys.transformers | Google Groups

    and Starscream is this:

    Really want a pic of flak. Cool to see what the legions class can do without having to reference character models. Micromaster homage excitment!

    Tailpipe is going to be great. The targetmaster gimmick is a nice bonus.
    But the flying bike mode is a mechtech weapon right? Not sure if that works.

    There are saw blades that come out of the tires so I'm guessing it's a melee type weapon.

    Also, I think it's funny that he comes with Pinpointer considering we saw a listing for a HA Scout named Crosshairs :lol

    You guys sure this targetmaster transforms into a humanoid? I don't see anything in the pics or description that confirm it. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Hopeful, though. I'm luvin' some Targetmasters.

    Instant buy he is my favorite of the basic human alliances so far.

    Wow that's atrocious. And here I was hoping on something rivalling Nightstick.

    A Targetmaster AND a human?! That's pretty badass. I'll certainly try to pick this up if it ever shows up, as I certainly think this justifies the almost $20 CAN Pricepoint.

    Edit: just saw the image of the Mini-con robot mode. I'm not sure what to think of him. He kinda looks like Ironhide's baby son. XD

    Edit: 3mm clip points on Tailpipe? Awwwww yeah.

    Every time we get a new one of these I secretly hope that they'll name one of the humans Sgt. Grumbles.
