    It's been a while since transformer test figures have been leaked onto the internet (Not since hasbro moved their factories to Vietnam way back when), so these latest findings seem a bit odd, if not random.

    Will these figures ever see the light of day? (At least in the US)

    It'd be nice to see them released in the Beast Hunters line, aliong with a deluxe Flamewar and Tailgate. Bunch of easy ass repaints for Hasbro to make a buck or two on. Repaints people actually want.

    If you mean the Hasbro versions of Ironhide and Frenzy, the vendor said he was told by the person who supplied them to him that they've been scrubbed.

    And since the vendor is in Rhode Island, Hasbro is too, and Rhode Island isn't that big a place from what i understand (?)...i'm going to guess they originated from Hasbro.

    My guess (and nothing but a guess, mind you) is they will be store exclusives and/or upcoming GDO assortment.

    A shame. Since these look like great repaints.

    Looks like I'll have to suck it up and import ironhide.

    Gears is good, but isn't a huge loss.
