I just ordered Springer and Blitzwing from Amazon. Stores never have anything.

This one has huge back wheels added, the rotor removed, a new weapon, a front grill/bumper added, the legs retooled to account for the replacement of the rear wheels, AND a new head sculpt. Oh, and the tail was re-tooled too!

Doubledealer (requires extensive retooling)

Anyway, Sandstorm is really impressive and near-perfect. Only issue I can see is that those wheel/turbine assemblies are going to take up a lot of shelf space in robot mode, but it looks like it's possible to fold them back and down.

I would love to see a Slamdance retool out of Blitzwing. But thinking more about it, they could also make Overlord out of him. Probably not everyone's first choice for this mold, but it might happen given Overlords recent appearances in the comics.

I wonder if hasbro can do Astro-Train and Octane like these guys?

That robot mode of Blitzwing's would hardly do Overlord proper justice.

I kinda wish they went with the more toy-accurate mouthplate rather than the cartoon-accurate regular face.

The lack of Breakdown might not have had anything to do with the amount of plastic. The only official reasons we got for him being skipped were "not up to Hsbro's standards" and "no-man's land price-wise"... which are ridiculously vague and could mean anything.

Yeah, me too I think (though I've got none of them in hand so far). It just looks sweet.
By the way, your avatar is making me hungry.
