    Almost looks like mirage has tidal wave.

    Not that I have heard, and I would much rather have her as a club exclusive for later this year, like the Seacons, Airrazor, and Astrotrain were.

    Either way I would need to pick her up, along with Kup and if this is indeed Banzai-tron I would need him.

    If they were going to make a Clench figure this year, it should have been the Landmine mold. At least it matches his G1 truck mode. (minus the snow plow of course.) Waste of a good opportunity in my opinion.

    They seem to waste a lot of good opportunities these days. Its unfortunate.

    Almost sad really. If I were a non-attendee who ordered the boxset and saw how much better the attendee extras are, I think I'd be feeling a little ripped off.

    Anyway, I predict lots and lots of boxsets getting resold or traded, and very few attendee extras to be found.

    Since the attendee exclusives have all been Decepticons, I would be surprised if Elita-One made the cut. Though I wouldn't mind it.

    Good toy, minus the big hole through the middle of it.

    interesting... there looks to be japanese writing on the side of the figure aswell

    alot of people seem to be happy about this figure... i however am not one of them... add me to the list of people who thought this mold should have been scourge... course i'm just not a fan of much outside of the G1 cartoon... i'd be more excited about pimpbot then banzaitron

    of course, who wouldn't be

    I think it is tidal wave just based on the color scheme.

    Since this is my very first post it may be polite to say "hello" to everyone.
    So, well... "Hello.".

    Finally Banzai-Tron gets his own transformable toy.
    I think that's great. The choice of the mold couldn't have been more fitting for that character.
    Another must-have for me.

    Actually I think this years entire set is really nice.
    I'll be quite happy to completely add it to my collection.

    There's no light grey to compliment the Armada Tidal Wave color scheme, plus I don't think they're paying homage to an Armada character in a G1 based set.
