    Both look pretty cool, and I have a feeling at least one of them (Dune Runner) will be added to my collection. Not sure about Scalpel yet.

    Could someone post the bios of these two? I'm having a tough time reading them...

    Scalpel - "SCALPEL has a massive database of anatomical data for millions of creatures across the universe. He can disassemble anything that doesn't struggle too much in a matter of minutes, and usually put it back together with only a few parts in the wrong place. He serves as medic to the DECEPTICON army, but many DECEPTICONS prefer to suffer in silence rather than allow SCALPEL to work on them."

    EDIT: Thanks for the fill-in Bumblethumper!

    Dune Runner - "Back on CYBERTRON most rollings surfaces are ___, tightly _______ roads - perfect for speed and traction. It wasn't until he got to earth that DUNE RUNNER encountered anything like ___ __ _____. He can't say he enjoys his new vehicle mode, but he appreciates that if lets him patrol the deserts and mountains where many DECEPTICONS have taken to hiding."

    That's a hard one to read still.

    I think that could be "He serves as medic to the Decepticon army". ... or possibly doctor.

    Hmmm, I wonder if he had a hand in the frankenstein project that is ROTF Megatron?

    THIS, and yeah. Im kinda leaning towards "Dune-Runner" more. Granted he is a tiny scount class figure--but i see reminscants of Hound-- which is essentially a GOOD thing-- :D  :thumb 

    Eh, Scaple is just a "Meh"... nothing to get exicted about -- a minor kitchen appliance at the Witwicky household gone Allspark-bad? :lol 


    OOh-- EDIT- Nevermind about "Scalple"-- Micorscope of DOOMMM.... :D  :lol

    While I don't like Scalpel as a Transformers design, he's just so damn neat I may have to pick him up.

    Woohoo! Transformers Mad Libs!

    Back on CYBERTRON most rollings surfaces are _apeshit__, tightly _boobies__ roads - perfect for speed and traction.

    It wasn't until he got to earth that DUNE RUNNER encountered anything like _frogs__ _with_ _telephones____.

    Anyways, not feeling Dune Runner.

    Scalpel on the other hand is a must have :drool:

    Scalpel is AWESOME!!! I love the idea of Transformers that don't have to be 2 stories high. It eliminates mass shift and you get sweet toys like this.

    I think this further strengthens my theory that scalpel is mistransformed on the back of the package (and in package as well)

    I'm pretty sure I have every word but one:

    "Back on CYBERTRON most rolling surfaces are flat, lightly textured roads - perfect for speed and traction. It wasn't until he got to earth that DUNE RUNNER experienced anything like sand or ____. He can't say he enjoys his new vehicle mode, but he appreciates that if lets him patrol the deserts and mountains where many DECEPTICONS have taken to hiding."

    Damn, having seen the picture of Doc Scalpel, I almost wish they could have made him a Leader-class, so that we could have had an actual life-size figure. :D 

    Still, I like the sound of him a lot; a creepy Frankenstein surgeon is a pretty good fit for the Decepticons, and the design is suitably unsettling...
