I have to admit, although I am waiting for all 6 to be released before jumping in, this guy makes it hard.

I love every angle on this guy and I don't even know if it is Freeway or Chase yet. lol

Well done ToyWorld
motorthing
Got the other two so of course I'm buying. But how long will this guy take to get out the gate?
CZ Hazard
I can't believe how much these guys have made me like the Throttlebots.
TheBigMachine
This is kick ass. I still have to order Aurora, but Toy World is producing some amazing figures.
Griff
Wow, nice...so I guess these guys are all going to be SUVs then?
Felixman
My biggest issue is with those doors on his arms... they are WAY too low and don't seem like 'mini-shields' like the ones on Grind Rod/Aurora do.

I had no intentions of ever getting Throttlebots...damn you Toyworld.
Hicks_Royel
Freeway... Chase has a face shield.

Very awesome.

They've done an excellent job of making me love toys of characters I don't give a crap about.

We need a blaster now we have his roller skates.

toyword OP? finally? sweet primus yes! been waiting on this! love bot mode! alt mode looks a little plain to me, but better than g1 so i'm completely sold on this. (it helps i've had hegemon waiting in the wings for some time)

and dammit! now i don't know if i want their brainstorm of fp's! this 3rd party business is starting to suck. (oh we of such terrible problems...)
yep. i called it in another thread a little earlier today. everyone's like "chase! chase!" why? because that vehicle is available in red? really?! when you compare heads the homage is obvious. i'm glad a few people have noticed at least!

thanks to scaleface i was shown the error of my ways....
dammit, and i wanted freeway so bad...

I've asked the mods to update the thread name/title.
MidnightBliss
That looks really good. It will have a place next to Grindrod and Aurora.
TornadoQuakeX
Can't wait for this one. Glad they finally put something out about it. It looks great! The vehicles get better and better looking.

^This^

I didn't even know who they were before Toyworld got a hold of them. Now I can't get enough of them. All of their aesthetics are great! Cool lil figures. Just picked up Grind Rod...
BraveMax
Hopefully this one is easier to get than Aurora... The way they handled him really pissed me off. I still don't own him because of the limited distribution, and frankly, if they're willing to do that with one of these guys, I'm more than a little worried about actually getting ahold of all six of these...

There we go, there's the Toyworld update I've been looking for today. The other two reveals today look like ass, so here's the bright spot.

Feels weird to be excited about the Throttlebots, of all things, but the first two figures in this set were really good, and I guess I'm just a little OCD about teams, even if they're one I've never really paid any attention to.
brr-icy
doesn't give a throttlebot vibe, no hood feet or roof chest, closer to sideswipe imo

You got a solid point. Shouldn't Freeway be more of a Corvette? Don't get me wrong, I still like him, just makes you wonder if it's 'not-Freeway'.
Grimlock_13
Easy buy, no brainer. Fucking amazing.
Zula
Nice.
Quick question.
Are these figures still intended to combine, or was that some sort of misunderstanding?

I haven't seen much along the those line beyond the 'leg' modes for Aurora and Grind Rod, and there's no pic of an 'arm' mode for this one.

Is there anything definite either way?
Griff
It was confirmed by either BBTS / TFsource that they do combine as a loose homage to Puzzler, the GoBot combiner.

I was thinking the same. I still probably won't buy these, but I'm interested in how the combined mode will look.

Yes, that's what bothering me as well with this one. Both Grindrod and Aurora were perfect updated from the G1 Throttlebot, but I didn't even peg this as a Throttlebot when I saw the pic.
Robogeek28
Personally I don't care if he doesn't have a Throttlebot look to him, he's freaking gorgeous!! The only one that will bother me if not done right will be Goldbug, but even then I'll be ok with it if he looks as great as this guy does.
Impactor1106
I think these look awesome, I'm getting them just as updated modern versions of the Throttlebot's, don't even care about the combined mode to tell you the truth -
Robogeek28
Yeah, I have no interest in combining these guys either.
Hicks_Royel
Does look good in blue though, doesn't it?

Seems you can also get the scaled model in red, yellow or orange though.
Impactor1106
Has anyone photo shopped those images yet?

This.


-ZacWilliam, if your gonna do Throttlebots do them. Don't do 1 spot on, one close enough for an update, and then one waaaayyy off model.
Transbot90210
But TW already laid out the Minivan/SUV theme from day one. We knew Goldbug would not be a VW Beetle and that Wideload would not be a dumptruck. I think the only thing we can expect from this line are proper colours are spot on heads.

Rollbar is the one throwing this set off because he was spot on. This happened because he has the only alt mode that fit into TW's odd (but shared from day one) alt mode choices.
ZacWilliam
It's not the vehicle choice or changes that throw it off to me. They could have done these same vehicles and still had it TF into something that looked reasonably Throttlebotty. Not-Searchlight did.


-ZacWilliam, I don't mind new details even just would like it to look broadly like the character. This fails there.

Is that definite? I was really hoping that one of the two middle silhouettes in the teaser pics would turn out to be a 2012 Beetle for Goldbug - possibly just wishful thinking, though.
Zambot
new images up on BBTS. Red! It's chase or "trace" as TW is calling him.



Kraken
That look's shmexy as all hell.
daimchoc
Updated first post.
TheBigMachine
I know he's not spot on to the G1 toy since the roof of the car isn't his chest and the hood isn't his feet, but he's a nice update. I wonder if TW figured fans would accuse them of repeating the same look/transformation so they opted to mix things up a bit. None-the-less, it's a damn good looking figure even if not "G1 accurate".
Scaleface
Well, since it's a gestalt, I didn't want a giant robot with four legs anyways!

I'd guess the blue not-Freeway will have a similar design, and be the other arm. Then an orange SUV version of not-Wide Load will be the lower torso, and not-Goldbug will be the head, right?
Robogeek28
Preordered.
Zavien
I don't know much about the throttlebots, but is there an old or newish picture of what they look like in combined mode? I've just never seen them.
Robogeek28
There aren't any pics yet, heck we don't even know what the other three members look like yet.

edit: Plus they never combined before so there's nothing to even reference it.

No combined mode pics yet. Speculation is that this is based on the Gobots Puzzler gestalt. The Throttlebots themselves didn't combine.
Zavien
Ok i wasnt sure, like i said im just learning about these guys. They all look really nice though..

If you plan to own Trace, you might want to go ahead and get the other two. Great figures and were nicely designed.
Hicks_Royel
Wow... I really hope the final product has a gold face.
