    he mentioned Alabama was the code name of the Takara Gen Select Soundblaster which was a clean version of Walmarts Siege Soundblaster. at that pricepoint i doubt this is going to be Soundblaster

    Good ol' JR is from the great state of Oklahoma. Hence why his WWE entrance theme was "Boomer Sooner," the University of Oklahoma Fight Song.



    As for all the talk about crossovers (irrelevant since it's not a Crossovers listing, as others have pointed out): I think an A-Team van would kick ass. Extra points if he had a mohawk.

    Months ago, I whipped up an image to ask my Facebook friends a hypothetical question:
    FB_IMG_1619890972877.jpg

    Two are done. One would obviously be dumb. Three are incredibly unlikely because of adult content. One won't happen because its name and livery are unacceptable. A couple are almost surely impossible because the toy rights are already licensed to other companies. Herbie is unlikely for obvious reasons.

    So after the A-Team van, I demand a Blueberry.

    Not only is that a great design as is, it wouldn't take much to retool it a little more in the Eagle 5 Winnebago from Spaceballs. Which I'm pretty sure would sell. (I'd buy it.)

    Me too, besides bama football. The other thing Alabama is known for is Talladega Superspeedway. So perhaps loudpedel, if not road rage.

    I'm fine with seeing the flag when its on the Dukes of Hazards car. But it shouldn't be anywhere else.

    Well that would be cool to have a water craft been too long since a boat/sub or something like that.

    I do, Phantasm's badass. Confusing too, but still very cool. I only want a Phantasm figure if it comes with one of those crazy shotguns Reggie had.

    Seems like if they were using codenames to prevent stuff from being leaked by store listings, they would use something that doesn't relate to the character, and would be really hard to guess. But hey, what do I know.

    Didn't someone (I think Takara) sell Siege Soundblaster with a properly placed Merc symbol?

    Something gator-y, I'd suspect. Skullcruncher or BW mutant Soundwave? Gator Prime in University of Florida colors?

    Maybe it's a retool of the ER Cliffjumper/Bee mold into a G1 Cybertronian saucer Bumblebee?

    My money is just on them getting wise to spoilery store listings and adopting code names like the Joe Classified series.

    Most sane people agreed that's what it was immediately.

    But then it's not the general Lee and as such not a collaborative figure

    I love theories !
    So, if they hide the figures with code names, for me is even funnier the wait to the conventions due to all the possibilities we can speculate !

    For example:

    Alabama -> Obama -> President of the United States -> Nicolas Cage -> Ghost Rider

    NEW TRANSFORMERS X MARVEL CONFIRMED !
