Actually, I think those drivers are [i]Bendies[/b](soft bodies with internasl wire skeletons), at least the one with Prime is. That ?Melissa? figure that comes with Prime (Convoy) can be put into different poses as evidenced in some of the pics Seibertorn.com had up.

like the BTA drivers, they are made up from several parts, so you can have a sitting pose and a standing pose

the thing that gets me about the bta 'drivers' is that they'd be about 3 foot tall.

Here is the pic I was referring to:

Found here:http://www.seibertron.com/news/view.php?id=7888 Now, to me, that looks like she could be a Bendy since I don?t see any joints. She looks like one solid piece.

Chances are the limbs dont have any visable hinges is due to the connecting points are were flesh meets clothing (plsatic of course).. aka standing legs connect at panty line, arms piviot at end of sleves, head at collar, etc. As much as I hope they're bendy, its VERY unlikly.

first, this picture is NOT from seibertron but from fantofan.jp, you canc learly see the watermark

second: you cannot see the 'joints' as these PVC figures do not have joints like regular action figures, there is a head, body, 2 sets of arms and 2 sets of legs that you can put together, like the BTA girls, these are too small to be a 'bendy'

Well, I got it from Seibertron.com. Where they got it from isn?t important.

Personally? (I know that they?ll never do it :roll: )? but I always thought that Hot Rod would look cool as the Pontiac Banshee. Basically it?s a conceptual/prototype car? but it kind of looks like the last Firebird with a different spoiler & lip. That would be cool! :P
