That ladder seems very obstructive. However, the other kits seem rather fine.

Never felt the shoulder cannons were a necessity for the twins. But if they look good I might just have to pick them up.

However you guys do realise that most fire trucks don't have ladders. Most pumper trucks, which is what Inferno is, just pump water and are built for that specific purpose. Hook and Ladder Trucks or Turnable Ladders carry the ladders and are built specifically for that purpose. Now I say most because in some smaller towns they can neither afford a hook and ladder truck nor have much need for it so they can combine as many functions as possible into one vehical. Usually called a quad or quint for the number of function it provides.

Hm... The Auto Scout is DOPE! I remember that episode. That's when I decided Windcharger was cool!

Did Sunstreaker ever have a Rocket Launcher?

Inferno's Ladder looks good. Really Anime-Mecha-ish. The Gun Hand is a must.

Ah, you have to love CAD prototyping. Production is even cooler, tho.

Lovely. Sorta


Now I might join the club.


If they can make a whole new reissue set of Cassette-bots, I'm there.


Also a good reason to buy Inferno. He looked too plane without the ladder.

I prefer that smaller rocket launcher to the big ones. Better proportions.

Hahaha, welcome to my job Boss. I get to tell people that smoke a curb in a snow storm that their warranty doesn't cover that sort of thing. Shouldn't be too bad though. Your tires side wall doesn't look pooched so it should only set you back a new steel rim. What's that down there, like $40?


Ahem. Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomb! I can't wait to spend money on these (Music to every companies ears) I've been waiting for a while now for a new and proper rocket launcher for Sideswipe.

I’m rarely ever interested in these sorts of things, but these are very nice. Can’t wait to get some much needed cannons for my Sideswipe and Mirage. I think Sunstreaker’s fine as is though, but I’ll probably stick one on him too.

Cool set, but the missile launchers are stupendously large. Hope the final product is more to scale.

No one really cares about what type of truck Inferno technically is, since the original had a ladder they felt this version should to. ;p

This is really the sort of thing they should of included with the original figures, as far as the missile launchers and such go, if they wanted to keep proper homage to the original figures.

Personally, I just stuck one of the launchers from the old camero movie-Bee in the shoulder slot and that's fine for Swipe. Though I should repaint the projectile to match better.

TFClub is different than the Official Transformers Collectors Club that HASBRO supports. TFClub is more of a garage toy company, filling voids with things like MP-Rollar, etc., and is not in anyway official or supported by HASBRO.

Agreed, I'd love to get this set (and I just watched the episode with Autoscout tape in it the other day) but I think the missile launchers are all a little oversized. Hopefully they shrink them a little.
