    Shortround = PURE LOVE!!

    I expected Shorty to be an autobot. But a con version just plain rocks!

    He doesn't look like that Asian kid from Indiana Jones at all, terrible sculpting indeed.

    Shortround to Thunderblast 'You call him Dr. Megatron, dame!'

    Enlighten me, was there another Gen 1 or Japanese fig that this name comes from, just seems kind of weird ya know.

    Maybe Hasbro is licensed to do Indiana Jones toys in the furure, and they wanted to lock down the Shortround name. I know GI Joe and TFs swap some names.

    Shortround is on my want list (and he looks much cooler than Seaspray!). I'll pass on Repugnus (damn repaints!)...

    Oh, am I a moron. I looked at the very first pic in the gallery and thought that was the alt-mode. Teach me to pay more attention.

    Is this still going on? Hasbro is only taking over manufacturing. Toybiz is is still doing design.

    Shortround... He doesn't look like an annoying small Asian boy to me.

    I rank him right down there with Armada Sideswipe. Awsome vehicle mode, horrible "OMGWTFBBQ" robot mode.

    Okay, I understand you may not like Shortround's bot mode, but I think comparing him to Armada Sideswipe is a little too much.

    Sideswipe was a brick, and was a bad kibble nightmare on top of that. In short, he was badly designed. But nothing about Shortround suggests bad design, only a unique robot mode.
