    I have some of them. Think oversized Go-Bots, partsformers, and partially shellformers. They would be great material for kitbash fodder, though.

    I actually bought the SUV to kitbash into Brawn. When I go it, I was so unimpressed with the figure that I never followed through with it.

    I'm currently working on a 1/32 GT. I've even been able to reduce his parts-former-ness. I just need to make a new head, and a better sword for him, then finish up the paint.

    I've been thinking about getting an H3, (when that one's released) to make a Brawn. I'm curious to know how badly that one breaks up, to transform.

    Best thing about these guys: Rubber tires!

    I wonder: is the part forming worse in certain scales? Like, do the 1:32 scale Roadboats have more partforming than the 1:18s and 1:12s?

    Never actually having the 2 together, I can't say for sure how different they are. I'll have the pic done in 5-10 minutes, if I can get the darn hosting thing to work.

    theres lot of great kitbash possibilties with these, but the scale just kills it for me..... why cant they be 1:24?!?!!?

    and i know its probably for patent reasons

    i love how they do very similar vehicles or sometimes the same vehicle with different transformations like sideswipe and sunstreaker

    1:18 H2. No way it could be an H1. Unless there's something I can't think of.

    This would be the main reason I'm not getting any of them. + or - a little is ok, but we finally have a line that is in scale; I don't want to rock that boat. Plus, 1:18 or so is just too big for me; I just don't have the space, no matter how cool some of them look :(
