hot damn! I love me more cars!
I wondering what the next 200$ price point fig will be..
I wouldnt count on all the Autobots. Volkswagen, Jeep, and Corvette may not be as willing to license their old school cars to Hasbro. Same thing with who ever owns the Wheeljack or Mirage race cars. Maybe Trailbreaker/Hoist since it was a GM vechicle.
I'd worry a lot more about all the sponsors Mirage and Wheeljack have. Ho boy.
Trailbreaker and Hoist are Toyota brand trucks, which falls under the Toyota Motor Corporation, or TMC. TMC currently owns the Toyota, Scion, Lexus, Daihatsu and Hino Motors brands.
If they changed VW's minds for the Lambo rights, then everyone else will fall in line. I'm sure Nissan is happy with the coolness of the Alternity GTR's. My guess is these will be original Z's.
As far as everyone else, they got Binaltech's, and with older models, most companies aren't trying to make money of old designs. I'd say there's a good shot at getting everyone, with only BB, Jazz and CJ being the two biggest pain in the asses
I always thought Trailbreaker and Hoist were Ford Broncos. Theres always repro labels for those unwilling sponsors like Alitalia on Wheeljack. But who owns made the car ? Same thing for Mirage ? How about Inferno and Grapple ? We know Volkswagen wont let Bumblebee happen. Did porshe say no in the past ? And WTF is Cliffjumper anyways ? In my childhood I always assumed he was a Honda...
