    I heard something earlier about mixmaster and scrapper being made as a forklift and mixing truck? Are these Japanese only releases or were these only made for the game? Or is Hasbro holding out on us? Somebody have any answers?

    They're game-only characters. Mixmaster would be cool if they could make the figure for real, but Scrapper as a forklift? Too tiny, and I cant see a toy forklift being very popular.

    I'd be all over a forklift TF. Hell, I'd buy two of them!

    Scrapper was my bot of choice in the "Battle for the Allspark" game, I'd love a little deluxe or even a scout version of him.

    Wasn't there a MRR Forklift? If not, there was a KO... I was gonna buy one the other week but couldn't due to insufficient funds...

    OP:

    I don't think size would be a problem. Forklifts are blocky, with plenty of bulk. Besides, we've had lots of motorcycles, and they're smaller than forklifts.

    Scrapper would be great. I liked his fork-swords.

    I'd love the folklift guy, too! (I remember KA had a thread about him and people at the movie forum were keen as well :) )
    Actually I would like all the drones in the game except for Swindle.

    Is Mixmaster the orange & white guy who's very slow? I haven't played the game for a while and forgot.

    Both of those look so much better than swindle and dreadwing.

    We need more down and dirty, utilitarian vehicles. Enough with Sports cars and fighter jets for a while.

    So is it just wishful thinking that we'll get toys of those two, or are there actual rumors that it might happen?

    Another pic of the two of them.

    No confirmed plans to make these two, which is a pity but they might get made somewhere down the line. I'd be surprised if Hasbro would stop at this point having made all the other drones.

    Well, either we get them at the tail end of the allspark power line, or they go on the list of cool looking characters with neat alt. modes who never got a toy.

    Speaking of the "Power of the Allspark" toys, when do those come out? There were several of those I was looking forward to.

    If those two ever get made I'll be all over them. I expect that they'll get made somewhere in the Power of the Allspark line as I'd be really surprised for Hasbro to stop after having made all the other drones.

    On a side note related to the topic, I'd also be surprised if the existing drones didn't receive repaints down the line with different heads depicting their alternate allegiances (sense all drones are used by both Autobots and Decepticons in the game) and with different names.
