    ...did you not read the rest of my post? I was pretty sure the sarcasm was evident.

    lol no... but I'd like to see all three Wreckers be male. If we're going to have a female robot, she should be a more feminine looking car, if you ask me.

    I'm not sexist, but from the way I see Movieverse, female robots should be smaller, more intricate and more beautifully alien than the male robots. The Blue Wrecker just doesn't give that vibe to me.

    Actually, now that I think of it, I think we'd be better off with no female robots in DOTM, after seeing how Bay treated the Arcee triplets. And yeah, I guess a Nascar doesn't suit a female Autobot at all lol. Unless they put Danica Patrick's car in there and give her her personality or something.

    One more thing. After watching G1 more and more on the Hub, I'm still fairly new to it. Which brings me to this: is Mirage a Wrecker? Seeing the Jimmie Johnson car's robot mode, they look a hell of a lot alike. Same colors too for that matter. But we all know Bay. :p

    I don't think mech tech is taking away they look pretty in scale unless someone could correct me.

    Yes, because characters who have similar alternate modes and colours have never existed in Transformers before, and characters have never underwent dramatic redesigns before the Bay movies.

    Mirage is much more of a spy than a Wrecker.

    The Wreckers are loud, brazen, and blow shit up!

    Mirage likes to look good, turn invisible and sneak around.

    Also to my knowledge Mirage was never a Wrecker.

    Leader Prime: Totally.
    Sideswipe: Sweet figure, but felt cheap and had some serious posing issues, all of which were fixed with the far more superior Sidearm mold.
    Sideways: Not exactly accurate to what we saw of his character model, has weird ass legs, can be a bit difficult to figure out how to pose properly.
    Starscream: Brilliant transformation and more accurate then the first voyager, but the arms really would have benefited from different elbow joints so that he can actually pose his arms without looking a bit daft. The legs are...Not all that great either. The first voyager really has it beat there.
    Rampage: Pretty much agreed!
    Skids: Has balancing issues, bit too complicated.

    Mind you, I like all of these, but I won't pretend that they were all amazing and far better then the DotM figures. They had some serious flaws of their own after all and we won't really know how the DotM toys will stack up until we actually have them in hand and can play with them.

    So far that firetruck looks like one bad ass toy. Who is the chopper though? Springer maybe?

    I don't, so I check a review video. Yes it is not Sidearm. Now I want to buy one. Too bad there wasn't a repaint or reprolabel. I am still waiting for a Sunstreaker and a Tracks.

    The helicopter is an Autobot and looks blue. If it not Silverbolt maybe Whirl. If there was a green version I want it to be Springer. I don't want the green nascar to be Springer.

    I might get Skids, Jolt and for sure Shockwave, the Wreckers, Dreads and SP. Pass on everything else and get the repaints.

    Why is it so hard to joke around on here? Whenever I make a Bay joke, I get kicked in the face for it. Whenever someone else does, they get praised.

    EDIT: Nevermind. I should just keep my mouth shut because most people on this forum take things so seriously.

    Oh and did you thoroughly read my post? I said I'm still NEW to G1.

    Well this is nice! I want to see more of the fire engine. Looks intriguing! Sideswipe also looks interesting along with the helicopter.

    Very interested in properly transformed barricade, i've been waiting on a new mold for so long!

    I adore the fire truck (so Sentinel Prime). He seems great! I don't know who is the blue car but I think the green car is Roadbuster. Oh, yeah certainly. I'm almost sure guys. But too bad is green car cause movie is not relevant to. Can't wait to bot modes and can't wait to movie. Oh God!

    I really hate when people judge things too quickly like the other day a group of people at work were talking about transformers 3 trailer, I overheard them saying shockwave is not gold he suppose to be purple, Im like "pal do you ever go on the internet or join transformers fan websites " and another question do you even know transformers.

    Epic fail

    I like the fire truck, however I also liked the Blackbird until I found out it transformed into an old man with a cane...
