    That's... oddly cheap for the bike girls. Looks like they will be micromaster-size :D

    Good stuff! 3 bikes at the deluxe price point. New bumblebee, might be the 07 camaro? Also cool to have confirmation that mixmaster is coming soonish. We'll probably see all of these this weekend at SDCC.

    The only things that will be able to combine by this point are Hightower and Scrapmetal, into the left arm. Everything else due out in the near future, including Mixmaster here, for his extremities. You need the two Leader-class robots, Demolishor and Overload, for anything else to connect.

    I assume this Bumblebee will be the 2007 Concept Camaro version. The Takara version of the original 2007 Deluxe MA-10 figure was also named "New Bumblebee".

    Oh, duh.

    And well, the RotF ones techically combined. But without any instructions on what you were supposed to do with them, well, your guess is as good as mine as to how they were intended to be configured.

    I'm gonna guess that they don't, though. Since that feature was cut from the final film, it's not something these toys would have to be accurate to. And if they're a three-pack and the Deluxe pricepoint, they're going to be tiny little Legends/Minicon-style things that don't have a lot of room for extraneous features, especially given what they transform into.

    Whatever the fuck that is.

    Plus that's actually only two of them, plus a third spare connector plug, since the development of a unique third sister figure got cancelled.

    Lol this topic has a seriously understating title, takara pricing isn’t the exciting news here.

    Never thought they’d actually do the bike trio. Hopefully we see these at the panel today.

    I'm actually ok with that. Gives me a few months to enjoy the figures we have now as individuals before they get subsumed into Devastator
