    I have been told of two more new Roadbots figures in the 1:32 scale version. I have been given these images of the new figures but so far, this is it.

    Toyota Celica

    and The Lancer Evolution.

    I have also received a few images of the Proto of the Lamborghini as well. Enjoy.

    Didn't there used to be rumours that Hasbro were doing an alternators Evo? The roadbots seem to "borrow" from the Alt sculpts a lot, so perhaps there was a prototype of the Evo made that was scraped for some reason - this may be a hint at what could have been.

    Love your sig. That was almost the exact same color scheme I had in mind for that toy.

    Ooh! I'd love to get my hands on those 1/32 scale ones. They should be close to scale with deluxe size TF cars.

    *looks again*

    Well, the Lancer bot looks awefully wonky, but the Celica is pretty neat looking. "And, I even like the color!"

    Honestly, those bot modes look like crap.

    Yeah, I would probably be all over most of these if they were in scale with the Alternators.

    Sad, they've got better robot modes than some of the Alternators.

    The Celica looks like a cousin of Spychanger Sideburn. :) 

    And, is it just me, or does the Lancer have a VERY Megatron-esque face? The evil expression, the high cheekbones, the samurai helmet, the unibrow.... paint that sucker silver and it would probably make a decent Megatron head.

    But yeah, otherwise the bot modes are pretty underwhelming.

    The celica looks pretty cool, but very limited in the articulation department. Still he may get a few reprolabels and become an autobot.

    The lancer on the other hand looks a bit of a mess. These guys should show up in the next few weeks over here, i'll definitely buy them and put together a review.

    Is that the alternator size? I'd consider getting a few Road Bots if they are in scale with the alternators, especially Hummer and Land Rover bots. I'd appreciate it if someone with those 'Bots can compare them with alts and take some pictures.

    I like the Lancer Evo's car mode, but in bot mode they both look like crap. Don't care for the blue one at all.

    Hooray for Raiders of the Lost Ark references! :D 

    As for the toys, I'd like the Lancer bot quite a bit more if he had more shoulder articulation. That said, there should definately be an official Transformer with a scythe because that's freaking awesome.

    Hmm, the faces this time seem more "Transformer - like" than the Roadbot faces I've seen so far. Too bad the weapons look silly and the scale is off.
