    Looks like I'll be selling mine. Hopefully Scorch and Rapido come in the same set.

    So the ugly Megatron Dino (Cindersaur?) is not the freebie? That is surprising. He better be paired with Double Punch then. Otherwise there is no way anyone would buy that ugly piece of slag.

    They've had their parts room open since Tuesday. There no reason to not believe him.

    Although his plastic bag says Slicer, his bio card lists him as Slice. I'm guessing he's yet another victim of trademark loss. Standby and I'll type up his bio...

    Actually, here, this will both serve as official confirmation as well as be easier than typing the bio. Sorry for the size; I'm still getting used to my new phone camera.

    I didn't realize we were dealing in GI Joe names now. Sheesh, they couldn't use Slicer? That's kind of.....sad. Although not as bad as Streetwise and his name change (I refuse to use the other name).

    Mwahahaha. Okay, not SG, but who cares, his bio quote makes it worth it.

    And I see the tech spec number randomizer's been at it again.

    Do we have pics of the other tech specs? Pretty please?

    Wasn't expecting him to be the freebie at all.

    I can't read that bio very well. SG? No correct?

    So it's a repaint of (A/E/C) Downshift? Excuse my ignorance, but I pretty much missed everything TF from Beast Wars though A/E/C... Only in recent years have I become more familiar with characters from those incarnations.

    Sure, hang tight and I'll upload some more cell pics (no scanner here at the hotel, obviously). And you'll all be happy to know that even though Skybyte's bio isn't a haiku, his motto is!
