    Nice but those are some crazy looking flames. :lol 

    Hope whoever has it doesn't hold back on the pictures.

    Needs it's own thread though really.

    Cool. I'm starting to warm up to this figures design. Still not sure I'll get him, but I'll wait and see what his properly transformed and posed bot-mode looks like first. Alt-mode looks really good so far. The flames aren't perfect, but they look better here than they did before. Definitely interesting to see him with a rubsign. I'm not a huge fan of them, but it's not a big enough issue to keep me from buying a TF.

    The flames are probably the only issue I have with the alt-mode. Not because they aren't G1 accurate, but because they're too busy and very off-putting. If I get this figure, those flames will be coming off.

    Easily deserves it's own thread, photos of an unreleased toy are big news, we don't seem to get them as much these days.

    Surprise, surprise, it already looks better then it did in the slideshow panel pictures. :lol 

    Bummer that it's an auction, this could be all we get. :(

    Its the rubsign that's got my attention. I wonder if thats just a repro sticker or actually a part of it?

    Do like the colours too, cool ass flames! :)

    Definately loving those flames. Rub signs I'm meh about, but that's just me. Glad to see they brought them back for the fandom.

    me about rubsigns, i'd be more excited about red autobot and purple decepticon symbols, they just don't pop being silver and gold as they have on animated and the classics seekers. don't like the flames, they look untidy.

    Cool looking car. I'm not so sure about that bot mode though.

    His alt mode looks a lot better now, not that it wasn't expected. Wish there were pics of his flight mode and a properly transformed robot mode.

    For myself a rubsign simply reminds me of being a kid with my G1 toys, reminds me of happier times :lol

    Quite fetching, but it's missing the red Autobot logo on a yellow square on the roof. I'll wait to see what Takara can do for United.

    Would it really kill the people putting the auctions up to... I don't know... attempt to transform the figure?

    Good to see he's actually in production, though!!

    Maybe the club could give us a Road Rage repaint with Crosscut (from Universe Ironhide).
