    These look like early design sketches, any idea of a release date?
    That Millenuum Falcon thing has to be the ugliest excuse for a toy I've ever seen!!

    Oh no, I can see another one of those Frenzy = Rumble debates coming on.

    I dub you Alternator Frenzy, in rememberance of the original G1 cartoon. Start the repaint machine Hasbro, I need a Blue Rumble! :thumb

    Howso? It keeps consistent with the G1 toys, the G1 cartoon's show bible, the G1 comics by Marvel, the Dreamwave comics AND the Japanese dub of the G1 cartoon.

    Wow, I can't wait to see the actual toy for Rumble. Should be interesting based of the drawing.

    SWTF millenium falcon makes Baby Jesus, and myself, cry very much.

    First- holy mother of Primus, those SW figs are ugly! Y'know the idea for the line wasn't so bad... but damn did they butcher it.

    Second- Rumble. Hot. And possibly the first time a new mold comes out a bad guy too. Aside from the obligatory blue version as Frenzy now they really need to make an Alt Soundwave. Maybe a car carrier like Ultra Magnus? :p 

    I wonder if they'd ever think of making alts Eject and Rewind...

    The sad thing? That Falcon actually looks good.

    If only we weren't subjected to Wookie/Human Kama-Sutra.

    I'm intrigued by the Falcon... I wish I could see how it compares in size to the other SWTFs. And knowing a price point would be nice too, but that'll come in time.

    Rumble looks nice, but I think I'll pass on him.

    Just a joke there, Nevermore. For some of us that grew up with Cartoon in the US, Rumble is Blue & Frenzy is red. Regardless of the fact that is a screw up and everything supports that Rumble is Red and Frenzy is Blue, no one can change are minds.

    But I think it is funny in these threads when people try. :ev:

    It looks like he's not even going to keep his HANDS...
    I'd say, judging by how I guess he transforms, he might actually be a tad shorter than the other Alts.. no bad thing for his character. Gotta hand it to them, its something new at least..
