    Aha, so he isn't visibly hollow through the middle. Looks as good as Grind Rod, therefore excellent. Happy days!

    Interesting to see that Aurora has a higher rank of the two. So he's the leader (of these two).

    Still no word on the NEXT release? With this and Hardbone out now, we have not seen any prototypes of the next release, we don't even know what is next. We only saw vague outlines or sketches of everything else. No more prototypes.

    I'm curious to see what is shown for being next on the bottom of the box..... Surprisingly no one has shown the bottom of the box.

    Cool, looks great. I wouldn't have minded a little bit of paint added to the shoulders to break up all of the white a wee bit more, but looks damn solid. I love that I'm as excited for these Throttlebots as I've been for bigger name characters. I love the engineering on these things.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that...that would've been nice to see. Hopefully we'll see something in the next week, since RK's already shipping theirs out.

    What exactly are you guys looking for on the bottom of the box?

    The only thing on the bottom is the normal sort of warnings and such

    Bought Grindrod and traded him within weeks. Nothing wrong with the quality of the figure, but something about these just doesn't work IMHO. Might be the overly simplistic heads or the fact that I was completely out of TF collecting by the time the Throttlebots happened, but these do nothing for me. I normally hate it when people pop into a thread just to state how much dislike they have for something, but at least I bought GR, so have at least some room to talk! :D

    That's one slick altmode for sure.

    The bot mode is disappointing though. The chest and the back flaps are offputting.

    That robot head... too much blue... it makes me appreciate classics tread bolt head. I would make at least the... helmet(?) in a different color.

    Grind Rod's box had pics of Aurora on the bottom, so everyone was assuming Aurora would have the next guy. I'm guessing this means a) he's not done yet, and b) ToyWorld is not going to be able to keep to their original schedule of trying to have them all out by the end of the year. Though I don't recall if Aurora had been fully revealed before Grind Rod came out or not, so I could be wrong.

    I'm thinking its going to be one of the other two car silhouettes. But yeah, it would be nice to see an actual pic of it :D

    On my Grindrod box there is a picture of this figure. Thought there might be a picture of the next one. ....
