Couple of quick updates on the TFCC 2012 exclusive Runabout from the TFCC twitter account. First we can expect another reveal later today. Second the figure will NOT be called Runabout. That name was unavailable so they have renamed the figure Over-Run. Stay tuned for the figure's full reveal!

"Runabout" reveal TODAY but before that want 2 give every1 a heads up. On the package he will NOT b called Runabout. Name was NOT available.


From a product standpoint we had to go with the name "Over-Run"... We could have searched out other names CLOSER to Runabout BUT thatwould have delayed us getting this guy to you all SOONER rather than later. Just all the way the schedule worked out.

Kind of Irked, but whatever. Maybe Reprolabels can make a sticker to replace the name as it appears on the box?

Meh, fine, what else is new with the TF names licensing issues. I think they made the right call in terms of getting him out in a timely fashion, because yeah, Repro will have the stickers for it.

I don't care if they call him "poopface" on the box, I still consider him Runabout... Major props to TFCC for choosing to get the figure to us sooner than later!

I'd have called him Runaboot. Make them Glaswegians. Fits with the characters.

I don't understand why we can't be given hard dates and times for on-sale items, registration, etc. They've been doing this dance for years now, you would think they'd want to stop looking like amateurs eventually. It certainly makes it hard for me to keep defending them and I love what they do. At this point, it isn't simple frustration.

The red windows are slick. Thumbs up on that. I do look forward to getting the exclusives. Pissed at the inept fashion this stuff is handled still. We're 8 years down the road for crying out loud!
:BOT:


I think they do this intentionally to avoid their site crashing or being largely unusable ala HTS on SDCC exclusive day. It's an inconvenience to be sure, but as long as they're available for better than 24 hours, it's not the end of the world.

Call him what you like.

I just want one no matter what, and I've long asserted that if Hasbro ever released a 100% show-accurate Ironhide, they could flaunt their rights to GoBots and call him VanGuard for all I care.

But since this messes up the pairity of an iconic duo, I'm feeling just dickish enough about this that I'd like to be the first to posit the theory that, based on the nature of the last Over-Run rename, it was likely not so much a rights issue as a revelation that the British consider "Runabout" an offensive slur against children with hyperactivity disorder.

I know I deserve to have my TF Club account lock me out as soon as preorders open up for saying that, but thank you, won't you?

As promised The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has fully revealed their 2012 exclusive Over-Run (aka Ranabout)! Bio and robot mode image below. We expect pre-orders to open for this guy and their other 2012 exclusive Shattered Glass Drift sometime next week.


OVER-RUN tries to pass himself off as a suave connoisseur of fine things. It’s not a façade he can really maintain for long, less because of his generally low intelligence and more because his interest in beautiful objects starts and ends with “blow them up!" His drive to seem sophisticated is in direct conflict with his enthusiastic love of explosions and action. The former is almost always on the losing side of that battle. He’s not interested in the Decepticons’ plans for conquest; he’s just with them because of the greater opportunities for his kind of fun. He’s always on the move, looking to create a bigger fireball, a larger bomb crater, and generally cram every microsecond with action.

He is partnered with the hyperactive RUNAMUCK, and has never had more fun in his life. Marginally smarter than his partner, he also has better self-control, giving the pairing just enough focus to present a real danger to most robots they gang up on.

Over-Run is a Deluxe sized figure featured in the Wings Universe and is Runamuck’s demolition partner. Over-Run utilizes one of the extremely popular “Classics” molds and features an all-new head sculpt by Dan Khanna and Paul Brooks. The toy is packed in a convention style box with a foam insert for easy removal and display.

"Over-Run utilizes one of the extremely popular “Classics” molds" This makes me laugh. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind this mold at all, but let's be frank: its only "popular" because its one of 5 molds Hasbro uses.

Still, I can't wait for both and seems I had both as a kid, they're getting a special place on my shelf. I'm already thinking of making some tweaks to the transformation though, specifically how the "Wings" are displayed. I may leave mine down along the body, like the old "arms" that the G1 guys had.
