Considering these are newer images, I would say this is indicative of what you're getting. Still looks like a metallic/sparkly olive to me.

Agreed-they could have easily added a pair of fog lights. They wouldn't have looked out of place even if this is the least likely Range Rover to see off road duty.

I'll likely buy a Wideload off these guys, assuming it looks as good as these guys.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

There is a pic of Rollbar in what appears as a leg mode, but... I doubt it's part of an actual gestalt. If Toyworld does go this route it won't ruin the figures for me as I'm already sold on these guys.

Ahh... that's it! Thanks for jogging my memory NOS. Agreed though... Throttlebot Gestalt doesn't do much for me... but it does add some curiosity to the project.

I really like the bot-modes... but the realistic curvy nature of the alt-modes seems kinda boring to me as I like my bots a bit more sharp & blocky. We'll see... if I have money to spare, I'll be VERY tempted I think still.

Im not thrilled about the updated alt modes. They should have went G1. Searchlight doesnt need to be a soccer mom SUV. But like everyone else on my classics shelf, I display them in robot modes to show G1 love rather than "neo" sillyness. But I do like the robot modes so far so Im still on board. Hope they dont combine. That would be stupid.

I agree - but I also think the alt modes look too realistic (alternity type aesthetic) to easliy slot in alongside 'CHUG' Hasbro and other 3p alt modes. Wasn't sure why I was umming and aahing about these, I guess this is why.

That's certainly an interesting choice of vehicle mode. I neither love it or hate it. Not blown away by the head sculpt with that pretty much flat face.

My biggest issue is how ToyWorld are making it very difficult to slap an Autbot logo on these guys' chests. But I'm very happy to see the set image has been updated. Want all of these quite badly.

:BOT:

The TW-T01 in these photos is the same as the one that was originally revealed, but the photos that were released when the figure became available to order just the other week were far less green. I'm really confused myself. I hope it's the greener of the two.

I doubt this would be a combiner, just look how wide that 'leg' would be! Ridiculous idea!! :P

Now having Grind/Rollbar in hand (no way was I completing that sentence with Rod in there) and very much loving it when is the word on 02 here coming down the Pike? If this series continues the quality and sheer fun of 01 Toyworld are going to get a lot of my custom from here on out.

Preorders anywhere yet?

Anybody know why BBTS or TF Source hasnt posted this pre-order yet ? Are they suckig up to Hasbro like they did when Hegemon came out ? Aurora is actually less G1 reminiscent than Grind Rod. Searchlight was a sports car and Aurora is a soccer mom mini SUV. Grind Rod was practically his G1 jeep mode.

Sucking up to Hasbro...?

Considering all the 3rd party stuff they've already sold and -still- sell... sometimes sooner than other e-tailers... that makes no sense. I'm sure they'll get their preorders up for it eventually, just be patient.
