    As a Rotorstorm fan, let me just say: he hasn't been slaughtered this viciously since LSOTW.

    I've been waiting forever for a good modern Rotorstorm. Looks like I'll KEEP ON WAITING.

    This figure is so lazy it's insulting. The bot mode is completely wrong; his canopy needs to be on his chest... not a fake canopy to add to the other TWO on his legs. And they didn't even bother to give him his own head??

    You missed the mark by a mile on this one, Hasbro. It's depressing that this is probably the only official Rotorstorm we'll get for a long time.
    Yes PLEASE!

    I just wanted the accessories but I guess I'll be using Centurion Drone as Slammer until an official one comes out.

    Huh. RED figures for BW and Prime characters? Interesting. Maybe this could lead to Animated?

    Brunt was hands down the worst weaponizer of all.

    Exactly. Don't know why Hasbro bothered with this instead of making a new Rotorstorm that they could probably sell 4 times (Rotorstorm, MW Sandstorm, Universe Whirl, and G2 Powerdive).

    Hasbro Pulse increased the price of the Centurion Drone Weaponizer by $10. Thank goodness I placed an order before that happened. Maybe the price increased because of all the accessories that are packed together I assume.

    Thanks, I didn't get any of the other molds, I thought they only had the launcher and clip in part.

    yeah, when they revealed it I assumed it'd be $30 or even $40, I grabbed 2 when I saw it was $20.
    :drunk 

    I think Red Alert only had the alternate gun, Tigertrack gets both.

    Red Alert had the alternate gun and the lightbar. The lightbar could even plug into the gun to create a "hammer" though it looked pretty lame.

    I'm happy to split some Centurion Weaponizer packs with anyone who's interested. I want more than 2 bots as an army builder and I don't need more than the two sets of accessories I'm getting with the two sets that Pulse is letting me pre-order.

    I don’t even care that it’s a straight repaint of Spinister. I’ve been needing Rotorstorm to complete my Last Stand of the Wreckers set. Preordered!

    As someone who is a huge Spinister fan, my bias for the winner is Rotor Storm. Tiger Track is a neat homage and they look like good Autobot background troops who get blasted off from Quake. Centaurion looks HEAVY of course he\'s from the most brutal Decepticon ever...BRUNT. I need to get Brunt, holy crap I missed out on him.

    I think the sinister mold works well enough for Rotorstorm. But he REALLY needs a new head... as it is, I can't buy this.

    Glad they did this Rotorstorm...I was just about to cave in, buy another Spinister, and do it myself. Now, all I need to replace is the head and I'm good with that.
    carry on...

    I wasn't entirely sure if he was supposed to be Slammer in the first place, but you and I have the same intent at least :D 

    Here's to hoping they do Clamp Down and Deep Cover and then I can swap out my Classics/CHMS versions of the Lambo bots completely.
