    I presume that 'Scalpel' toy posted earlier is supposed to be 'The Doctor'

    That's not "The Doctor", that's "Scalpel"... the miscroscope.... :/

    I'm skeptical of some of the info in the article. It says Ravage doesn't turn into anything.. which sounds like misinformation BS.

    "Arcee is the only female and turns up as Megan Fox's hot-pink motorcycle." - Sooo... Chromia is a dude?

    "The Fallen is an ancient robot, sort of the Transformers' version of Lucifer. He's one of the original robot aliens, and his defiance and arrogance led to his banishment into another dimension." - Another dimension? I would have hoped they would avoid that kind of thing in the movie-verse for at least a few more movies.

    "These seven robots — Scavenger, Scrapper, Hightower, Longhaul, Rampage, Overload and Mixmaster — transform into construction machinery, but also link up with one another to form one gigantic robot stomper named Devastator." Seven CC's? Eh... o rly?

    We should probably get a "Spoilers" tag put on this Thread....

    Is this "The Doctor" another incarnation of Dr. Who? Eh? Does he have a Tardis?

    Incredible find so the little micoscope is going to be called the doctor haha would have been funny if they called him Perceptor. I love that Ravage is going to be kinda like the G1 man now i am really really excited about this movie

    A very good article.

    Interesting detailed description of Jetfire, in that he has trouble Transforming. Maybe it is part of the reason that he merges with Prime. Or maybe it is a nod to ROBOTECH that he gets stuck in Guardian Mode! Haha!

    It also says that Arcee is the only Female Transformer. No mention of Chromia and that she is ridden by Mikaela.

    The picture and description of The Doctor is very similar to the Microscope Spider Toy we saw earlier today.

    Bgrngod: Scorponok in the first movie only "transformed" into parts of a helicopter. Why should Ravage, who essentially takes Scorponok's role in this movie, be any different? I fully expect his deluxe toy to go from jaguar mode to a made-up bipedal bot mode that you won't see in the movie.

    I think it sounds more like Chromia and the other bike-bot just won't get mentioned or have any lines.

    Very interesting article. Can't wait to see more of "The Doctor" and this plague of Insecticons.

    Yep, see below:-

    "We have big guys, some little guys. We have a lot of littler ones, too. Little weirder ones," Bay says. Like the Insecticons, which were giant bugs in the original series and Hasbro toy line, but are now tiny creepy-crawly infiltrators.

    The Doctor does not sound menacing... I thought it might be Rumble... or that one Pretender that was supposedly rumored to be in ROTF...

    NOw there are seven constructicons... hmm.... Well, that artwork we saw of Devys a while back showed seven of them. Maybe Overload forms the back, or waist? It's a shame he's left out of the toy version though.

    I like the idea of varied in size TFs. I know Frenzy was our only mini the first time, but now the Decepticons can directly fight the humans.
    Edit: Did you notice that for the Constructicons, it replaced Demolsihor with Scavenger? Is Demolishor really the Constructicon afterall? Is Scavenger his twin?

    Also, Devastator=Joker.

    But both are Hasbro, so they can do what they want. Besides how can you trademark 'the doctor'. That's about as generic as it gets.
