    Two regular deluxes cannot be sold as a Voyager.

    Two Scouts would be a rip-off sold as a Voyager.


    These may be be two seperate toys designed to fill the Voyager price point - larger than Scouts but smaller than Deluxes.

    Wow...Transformers has been pumping out cool stuff regularly!

    Rumble/Frenzy are tanks now? They look cool. I've been awaiting them for the longest.

    OK, I can accept this Wheeljack. Now that I know his legs are the right way and his altmode is different he is now perfect (almost)!

    WheelJack looks great. I can't wait to see him painted up. As far as Rumble and Frenzy, I think the Shadow Warrior repaints will remain my Rumble and frenzy. Don't get me wrong, I'll get these they look very cool. They will just get new names. :)

    Hee hee! Rumble (Frenzy?) looks incredibly show-accurate and works well as a double-barrel tank. Now all we need is to see how tall he stands compared to others. But... uh... what happened to his brother? I thought F&R were supposed to combine or summat.

    I have a feeling that Frenzy and Rumble can combine into a massive power tank

    Listing revealed the pack is sold at Voyager price point.

    That said, not sure what the prices are in the US, but the NEST Bee vs Soundwave, and Animated Jetfire&Jetstorm, all deluxes, were sold at Voyager price over here..so I could see them being Deluxe class.

    If not, maybe they come with an extra gadget?

    Wheeljack looks alright. At least there's some remolding going on and the lower legs can indeed flip around to have his bumper feet. Still not incredibly happy about the fact it's a Tracks remold but oh well, no use complaining. At least we're finally getting Wheeljack!

    Rumble/ Frenzy....ehhhhh not too ken on it right now. I'll wait for better pictures but at this point I'm sticking to my Perfect Effect Warriors.

    Both look great! Hopefully we get to see Rumble, too.

    Rumble & Frenzy are sold as a "voyager" by Takara Tomy in the United line in Japan. We know nothing of the Hasbro version yet. So for the US release... I do expect it's 1 mold, a scout, and there will be 2 repaints released individually.

    On reason might be is that Jazz is also coming out in the same wave as Tracks. 2 new white cars in the same wave might not be a great idea.

    Great looking toys. I'll stick with my PE Rumble/Frenz, though, to keep them in G1 scale.

    Wheeljack looks great. I like how Hasbro is playing with molds in order to make new character renditions instead of just recoloring or repainting. The wrenches are a nice touch. The Frenzy/Rumble it'll take a little time to accept. If we took a Civic SI in Alternators, why not a tank? Piledrivers, please.

    wow, WOW, WOW!!! I hope all the nay-Sayers and doubters are eaten some crow, cuz Wheeljack looks freaking fantastic, even better than I imagined. (and better than Tracks IMHO - I think the 'stockiness' of the mold works better for WJ)

    That is just insanely clever the way Tracks rockets become Wheeljacks wrenches.

    Frenzy looks like a decent update, but I'm not blown away. He works though, and looks good in both modes. I think I'm being a bit put off by the skinny legs/bulky arms. the torso looks great and the Alt mode is cool.

    I can't believe we've now seen basically everything until TF3 product starts rolling out.
