    Uh, yeah, that doesn't prove anything either, same as Dead End/Detour, Dirt Boss/Scrapper, or Knock Out. There are no package shots to give us an actual name, until then it's just people making shit up. Though the new pics are nice.

    Yeah, for now I'm taking all names for these scouts as tentative/guessed.

    Again, still just guesses on the names until some official packaging is seen.

    Lets not forget guys, the guy selling this may actually know (or not). These people in China usually know the names and I wouldn’t be surprised if they get this info with the toy.

    Does anyone else think that it look like one of those RedBull promotion vechials? From the colors to the bull head on the side.

    Yeah, whatever. Wake me up when they start showing toy images of ROTF Prime, Megatron, Starscream, etc, not these underlings.

    And let's not forget, Chinese sellers called Alternators Skids "Ironhide", and the Universe Bruticus Maximus limbs Swindle and Vortex "Sandstorm" and "Whirl", respectively.

    And we know these names are accurate... how?

    for sure not, did i claimed that?

    All i say is: i found it at the seller, i postet it here, not more, not less.

    Now you can tell me hundred times that i take these personally - and before you accuses this to me: the only one who put himself on airs is you!

    of course, you and nekoman are right: sometimes the sellers have the right names, and sometimes the wrong names, what's the problem with you? I never told that "Rolbar" is Fact! I only told he has a name and postet the link with some declarations! I hope that's okay fo you

    Totally.. if Red Bull decides to start throwing AllSpark Blue into the mix... I thought by now they must know we hate that color.

    Oh well.. even for a scout and a shell-former, he looks alright...

    Man, I don't know... It seems to have the simplistic Transformation of a "Fast Action Battler" but whatever it is it's straight up ooooogly. It's got Cybertron Primus's colorscheme lol

    You know, I was thinking the exact same thing, and I actually checked the thread to see if anyone else had shared my observation. He looks an AWFUL lot like a Red Bull delivery truck, and the "red-colored Bull head" on the side doesn't help his case any. I might have to get him SOLELY for the sly marketing nod.... I mean c'mon... :lol 



    Compare and contrast: Blue and Grey scheme, diagonal offset line, red and yellow bull logo...the only way it could be better is if it were a Yoo-hoo truck.

    I sometimes work for Red Bull. Maybe I should ask them if they have anything to do with it. Unlikely, but we never know.

    EDIT: I just emailed them. We'll see if they know anything about it.

    Am I the only one who thinks the headsculpt is similar to a certain guitar-wielding Brave?
