    7? There's the 5 in the club mag (and on Hasbro's site as gray protos) plus Sideswipe is pretty much a guarantee (given that the Sunstreaker mold was admittedly designed to get both characters out of it) ... who am I forgetting that would make it 7??

    Galvatron's supposed to be in the pipeline.

    I dunno... I thought Thunder Clash was best for character likeness. It was pretty much spot on... :p

    I don't know what's worse... the half-assed mold, or the half-assed idea of naming it after a gestault.

    Looks very Universe-ish color. I like it.

    As was mentioned earlier, they obviously would have called it Motormaster if they'd had the trademark. Since they didn't, Menasor was the closest homage.

    Until the trademark is reacquired, I'd like to see the character called Motormeister.

    That would be Galvatron, while not as confirmed as the other 6, he has basically been confirmed, as we were told that we would be getting a new mold Galvatron, and that it would be an Ultra sized figure (that there tells us that he'll be in the new Universe line). That was back at SDCC, so things could have changed, but, I'm still pretty sure that they'll be making him.

    I'd be tempted if I was trying to trim down my collection :)

    I've got Machine Wars Prime. He looks awsome in truck mode, robot mode not so much. So he stays in truck mode. Robot mode isn't a disaster but it looks nothing like how Prime should look. Truck mode I love for it's Mad Maxness. The mold would have really looked good in those colors and the robot mode wouldn't have been so bad since it wasn't OP.

    That's priced about $500 more than he's worth IMO.

    Looks okay, but I would've taken Toxitron over that.

    Yeah, well above what I would have ever paid for it.
