    Go Shooter kinda looks like Tailgate.

    I do like the look of both these guys though I mean I love Trains and I wish they'd homage the other 5 trainbots but there's a severe lack of train alt modes :/

    Strangely I have no tie to Go Shooter, and I hate this mold, but I am finding myself liking this deco. Just not $90-$100 liking it.

    Its not for you. Its for the Japanese who voted for him to be made who remember him from Masterforce.

    And if they really didn't like the mold, even though they liked the character, they could have chosen someone else. But they didn't.

    I hate to admit it but Shooter is actually pretty damn cool looking.

    I still wanted Alpha Trion more but now I actually want Shooter, love the use of mistransforming the doors to make him look different from Bumblebee/Goldfire/Nightbeat.

    Ok. So the US needs to do Siren (with a new head based on the G1 Nightbeat toy head / Siren's comic head) and then use that head to make Minerva as well.

    And for those that think Siren and Go Shooter look the same, one is a white and blue police car and the other is a gray and blue fire chief car...

    I hate the Generations Bumblebee mold with a passion, but that is an awesome Deco.

    :rolleyes2 

    I love it when people think they speak for everyone. I care about GoShooter as a character more than about 80% of anything we've gotten in years.

    I care. He's my first Transformer toy ever, the first Transformer I ever encountered and one of my favorites ever. Still have the original toy. Siren that is. But it's OK, as a kid I always pretended he was a police car, because I thought Police would be cooler than a "lame" firefighter car. I know now, that a Firefighter is a little more badass in saving people than a cop. But... anyway... I'm looking forward to him! Although I wish Siren and Nightbeat would have gotten new molds. But the robot modes work for me.

    THIS! I feared we might never get this one, because of people who only like characters who appeared in the western cartoon or only the original Ark crew... As a kid I was so sad, that Siren never appeared in the cartoon. When Transformers started to air in my country, I always sat in the living room with Siren playing, while watching the cartoon.

    You do realize, that THIS head is the correct one, but it's wrong for Nightbeat? Nightbeat never had a visor, but Siren had. In the comics it was always wrong. And this time, I'm for toy accuracy, because I only had the toys and never read the comics in which they appeared. But I'm fine with Nightbeat having a visor as well. It looks cooler. Also Siren was gray and red.

    Next I'm hoping for Getaway :D

    It looks better than I expected but I like it as nightbeat more and I cannot see these two sharing a mould. Plus I am better this thing will be pricey.

    Of course I know what the toy had. I had them. The Marvel comics made Nightbeat as popular as he is, and that's why he's mostly associated with the visor. Siren didn't get quite as much attention as Nightbeat in the comics, but any speck of personality he had was in the comics, so that tends to be where I draw my liking of him. The toys were kinda sucky by that point.

    My main reasoning was to differentiate Siren and GoShooter, since Siren's main fiction had the Nightbeat toy head, while GoShooter's fiction was toy accurate in Masterforce. They can both exist.

    Woah, for that price they could have at least included the lightbar on the roof.

    Right? This looks like a great release (dat artwork!) ruined by an absurd price. So...like every other Million Publishing release, just with the added novelty of a vote.
