    There definitely needs to be a figure made based on these sketches. She's too cuuute!!

    Also: is the term Quadra-changer a thing? I like it! Easier than quadruple-changer, and not just a number like six-changer.

    I don't think she really has 4 distinct modes, since being a triplechanger or such doesn't usually occur by chance in the comics. I assume she has variable configurations for her rocket buggy alt mode.

    You guys are going to enjoy issue 44. It was a pleasure working with Sakamoto on it. Try not to cry too much...

    I made it up, but if you want to make it into a thing, go for it!

    Yeah, I qualified it by saying "in the style of Tracks", since Tracks doesn't really have the distinct third mode either, but again, a variable configuration.

    44 a tear jerker, huh? I'll be counting the days for that one, then.

    What the heck is that? A flying submarine with wheels?!

    You know, the more I see of her design, the more I like it just for how bizarre it is. Pity her name is so lame.

    I think either Roberts or Milne said she was a supposed to be a shiny chrome car with light bulb fingers but the Quadra-changer concept looks awesome.

    I darkened it up for people with normal human eyes like mine that can't see it.

    She looks great! The minicon application is a nice touch - plus we don't get too many subs in TF lore!

    3Ps need to make a toy ASAP! It's too bad Hasbro doesn't take more notice or interest in oddball characters like this that aren't named "Bumblebee" or "Optimus".

    So next question is...
    Can she powerlink like the Armada Minicons? At the very least any hypothetical toys would need the port to make her a minicon and not a micromaster.

    It's official: Nickel is the most adorable Transformer (alongside Tailgate) I've ever seen. I can't look at any of her modes without going Aww. :3

    Also, toy plz Hasbro/3rd party.
