    Here's pictures of the new Hot Rod Cyclonus 2 pack in box, and the cover of the pack in comic!

    Oh yeah that comic, look at the names Furmon, and Boo (to be honest I don't know who Boo is)!

    I can also confirm that this is slated for 2011 US retail!

    I'm digging this pack. When was this pack announced? I don't recall hearing about this. Is this suppose to be an exclusive?

    The box looks great and so do the figures.

    So much for controlling that leak.

    I give this thread a few minutes to live. But I guess this is US confirmation.

    Cool. I'll definitely be getting this set when it comes out. Would have been nice if Rodimus had translucent plastic, but oh well. The inclusion of the Matrix and a comic is nice. Though kinda funny considering I can only imagine one of those figures holding it, and that's Nightstick, lol. Not sure what I'll be doing with my current versions of these guys, but I do know I'll be swapping Cyclonus's ear pieces. Some additional gray would help break up the purple on this version a bit.

    Should be interesting to see what, if any, similarly themed 2-packs we get. A RID themed set would be nice. Scourge vs pretty much any Autobot would be nice (how about X-Brawn from Perceptor?). Would also get around releasing two figures named Scourge too close to each other.

    Looks like it. Especially given the fact that Rodimus, Cyclonus, and Scourge are all based, to at least some degree, on their toys. Can't see much of him, but what I do see, I like.

    Hopefully that Kup is a sign of what's to come. :D 

    Also, the set looks great. Glad I preordered it.

    So is the windshield clear plastic or painted? Also, those look like mockup rub signs. Don't look right in the pics.

    EDIT: BTW, that comic art looks like crap. I don't need animated bleeding over into other lines, thank you much.

    So yeah. The Kup on that comic cover is Generations Kup. Notice how everyone on that cover is a classics toy? Look at the Sweeps on the bottom left.

    You have just implied that Unicron is a Generations toy.

    Okay, they're all Classics toys save Unicron. :lol  I thought it was kind of obvious that he wasn't.

    I have a feeling that is a very crude mockup of the figures in the set. Those rub signs are not really rub signs. Of course I'm still holding out hope that Rodimus actually has a windshield like the original classics version.

    Nice. I'm glad I pre-ordered 2. This should be front paged. :)

    It looks to me like the rub signs are not the ones of old. They appear to have shape and not just a square.

    If that's the case, they are far different than the ones we have seen for the Legends. I find it odd they would differ between the two. Again, I think the toys are being mocked up here. The packaging is legit, but not necessarily the toys IMHO.
