    Heh, definently going to have to pick this guy up. Believe it or not Getaway (the G1 character this is supposed to represent) was the first Transformer that I ever spent my own money on (anything prior bought by family or friends for birthdays and Christmas and such...). So, Getaway has a very special place in my mind and this version (even though they've had to rename him due to issues with the original name) is a perfect homage and update to him.

    Cool. Those are three molds I don't own yet, so I might at least get Gunbarrel and Reverb, as I wouldn't mind owning those two. Would be interesting to see two more of the Scout combiner limbs, and then a repaint of one of the Deluxe combiner body's released. That way I could add another combiner to my Decepticon forces, and possibly kitbash one for my Autobot forces.

    Edit: I just noticed that the clear blue parts for Gunbarrel and Reverb are the same shade of blue, so it could be possible that they're planning on releasing 3 more so people could make a combiner (though having that gimmick mentioned on the back of the packaging would help with that, lol).

    No idea, but I'm getting the vibe that the Movie line will continue threw ought the rest of the year in the form of store exclusive repaints (Target, TRU, and Walmart).

    Well that explains why target marked down the deluxes but not the basics. I'm guessing the wave after this will be the two jets and cybertron scattershot

    Oh, sweet, sweet hotness. THE MOVIE LINE WILL NEVER END.

    Why don't they have Allspark Power packaging, though? They all clearly have the Allspark Power blue on them.

    Nice. This way, I don't have to get Blight and Stormcloud (which has horrible color schemes, IMO) and I will still be able to complete Bruticus Maximus.

    New Target Scouts, eh? Kinda unexpected.... and sort of bland looking. But they're cheap, and I like all three of those molds, so I'll get 'em.

    Breakaway, on the other hand, engenders FAR more enthusiasm from me. I am really looking forward to that little guy.

    Getaway was the first G1 TF I ever had, and I loved it. Despite not having the engine or gun, I always thought so highly of him.

    Wow, that's a surprise. Do want them all, and I'd love a movie gestalt. Bring on an Energon Barricade repaint in Universe Onslaught colors if you have to!
