    need the others!!!! I love these little guys!! Why is there no pre-order for the next figure! I say scrap the combiner idea if its causing you problems. I just want the throttlebots!

    and for those wondering about the size of figures. they should all be the same size, as it would be a six combiner team. so two robots make up the torso. thus keeping the robots scaled together nicely. my guess/opinion, not an official statement.

    have had mine for around a week now and i like him better than grind rod, though transformations are similar it's the differences that make me like it more. can't wait for the others!

    Mine is still on pre-order at TF Source. I just hope they don't send me an e-mail refunding my pre-order, I have a bad feeling about Toyworld. I mean, 3rd parties in general. No news, no releases, lots of stuff getting delayed.

    Maybe toy companies are saving up their announcements for TFcon? Remember last year we got about 2 dozen new toy announcements.

    Yeah, I'm waiting on TFSource too. Not their fault, but when I assembled that order, I was pretty much ready to pay... now I'm waiting for Aurora, Grindrod, AND the Demolition Crew due to the holdup. :( 

    The only good news is that it gives me more time to build up savings for other figures and an upcoming Anime convention. ^_^

    Mine came today. Super happy with this line of figures. I have the hole in the knee too. Can't wait to see who is next.

    Glad to report my Aurora does not have the leg defect. I got mine from BBTS. I like him better than Grind Rod.

    How does Aurora scale to MP-10? Is he shorter than MP Sideswipe?

    It's a Deluxe size. If you want to display it with MP, you have to say they are pretty small. They fit in more with CHUGs in my opinion.

    Hmm ok. So would you say Aurora would be half the size of MP Sideswipe?
    I'm not super familiar with the sizes like 'Deluxe' and whatnot. I tried to Google it but didn't quite find the answer. Anybody got a pic of Aurora standing next to MP-10 Optimus or MP Sideswipe?

    Thanks for the info Scaleface!

    Wow thank you so much for that pic guys!! That helps immensely. They seem to be perfectly scaled to the new MP's to me. At least bot-wise. Though I understand that everybody has slightly different ideas on what scales and what doesn't haha. Which is cool, of course.

    Did anyone order Aurora from BBTS and *not* get one with the piece missing from the left leg?

    Thanks.

    No. Mine had the leg-hole. Still cant figure out what sort of production fault would leave a hole there that wouldnt get picked up in whatever passes for QC at Toyworld.

    I'm fine with them standing on my MP shelf as to be honest they actually look too beefy to look right with my classics. They were supposed to be "little guys" in G1 so I'm ok with them fulfilling that role in MP land. Takara wont make legit ones in this century anyway........

    Was the hole in the leg just a bad production run or do most have them?

    I'm tempted to get this guy, especially because Not-Rollbar was incredible.
