    Check out Cheetor, he is a Maximal but they gave him an Autobot logo? Lazy much, Hasbro?

    EDIT: I probably should mention I bought these guys from the OG Orchard Road Branch, a departmental store in Singapore. :)  Sorry I threw away my receipt before remembering to take a picture :eek: 


    EDIT 2:
    UPDATE

    Cyclonus spotted! Got him today at a local hobby toyshop in Singapore, this would mean he should hit mass retail in a matter of days. Some pics: :)

    not really, more like "avoid brand confusion much." public recall is least risky when limited to two factions, apparently, at least on prominent places like in the TF logo and at the top of the card [you'll note that his front-card name and action-feature/accessory callout has a BW Maximal sigil next to it instead of the Autobot/Decepticon ones the others have].

    i do wish they'd explored more facial expression options. don't get me wrong, i'm glad that dull surprise is gone for now, but instead of dull surprise we now have snarling constipation. screamer could be smirking, cheetor grinning a jaam grin, and hound, well, i dunno, smiling maybe [aside from his team leader stint in the IDW verse, hound never really seemed like the teeth-clenching type].

    those look nice in box.

    alongside animated the TF shelves will look more eyecatching than they have for several years.

    Man, If I didn't already have a Henkei 'Scream coming, I'd buy the Hasbro version just for the packaging.

    Kinda reluctant to open them right now as I will be moving (again) in six months where I will settle into a more permanent abode. If I do open him I WILL take pics and let you know. But I think someone else would probably beat me to it by then :)

    I cant imagine the QC being any different than Acid Storm considering he's just a re-paint. I'll be getting Hound so I can get Ravage. Pretty cool that he can fit inside Soundwave. Cheetor is a pass. Never liked any of the Beast Wars stuff.

    Cool. But even if they make it stateside sometime next month, it'll still probably be until January before they show up in Jersey. Oh, well.
