    You're just speculating. You really can't accurately gauge the durability just from a single picture.

    Also, you're overly optimistic. Remember that miniature MP Optimus?

    Guys, this is a fan project, plain and simple.

    Looks fan-made. In that case, not interested.

    For what little it's worth I DO believe it transforms, though exactly how or what it looks like in the other mode I can't say. There's enough stuff around the shoulders/hips that appear to be made to move, and some apparent tabs and notches which would probably not exist if the toy was just intended to be an action figure.

    I'm sorry doubters, but it looks very Hasbro to me.

    It's way too simplistic to be a Hasbro product. The fist hole is guaranteed to be 5 mm, meaning this is scout-sized. It's got less than 20 pieces, which is a hell of a lot less than any other scout. On top of that, it's unpainted resin. Every single prototype at this stage that has been a genuine Hasbro/Takara product has always been painted gray. There has never been an exception. The only time a prototype like this has shown up being unpainted is when it's being made by a "fan" company.

    There is absolutely no way this is a HasTak product.

    These kinds of threads sure turn everyone into experts on toy design and how Hasbro and Takara do things.

    Even ignoring the Frenzy/Rumble resemblance, it looks too big to be a Powermaster.

    That's the whole point dude, if we know whether it's fan made or legit then we know whether it's worth getting excited about or not.

    Heh, ain't that the truth...if it does turn out to be official, however, expect a distinct lack of humble pie-eating and an awful lot of back-pedalling.

    Still hoping this is Uni 3.0 Fremble/Rumzy, though... *crosses fingers*

    I think we should take down the names of everyone declaring it to be either fanmade or Hasbro, and then those who end up being wrong have to put "Caution: I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I'm completely unaware of that fact." in their sig.

    It looked Hasbro to me, but after hearing the poster is practically(or even actually?) a fan-group "spokesperson", I now doubt it's Hasbro.

    Really? How can you not see that it is obviously Rumble. And you call yourself a fan?

    man i hope this is has/tak, it would be awesome if there was a line of scout sized cassette bots and maybe even mini-bots for classics/universe 3.0
