His background is unknown. His weapon of choice is a sub machine gun, and he's packin' 3 of 'em. He parachutes in behind enemy lines, with guns blazing, and all while rockin' a trenchcoat!

Our newest Seibertron.com gallery features one of the newest movieverse recruits: Crosshairs!

His beautiful vehicle mode is based on a modified Chevy Corvette C7, dressed in a snazzy looking black and green deco. His robot mode looks like a cross between a spy and spec ops with the cool 3-D looking goggles adorning his head on top of his already sneaky and sleek design.

Crosshairs looks like the type who kicks tailplate and takes names and soon he'll be able to do the same in your collection. Until then, let our gallery whet your whistle while you wait.

This is the one movie figure I'm actually looking forward to.

I'm over my initial "oh the dinos look cool!" reaction.

Just noticed his box art depicts his goggles as 3-D glasses! Any word as to whether there'll be actual Crosshairs 3-D role play glasses?

One is red and one is blue, but I'm pretty sure they're not supposed to be 3-D glasses. Unless he's on his way to the IMAX theater to see Age of Extinction in 3-D!

This is the first movie toy I will probably pick up. Really like his vehicle mode, plus I have a thing for green. :CON:

So do I. It's called an aversion! Sweet mother of Primus but that's just one obnoxiously LOUD colored figure. I suppose we can drop the "In Disguise" portion out of "Robots in Disguise" for this one. It's a sad state of affairs when a version of Bumblebee can actually blend in better than any other bot on both teams.

I have to admit that some of the alt modes are growing on me but I just can't bring myself to pick up any of these characters up when I not only plan on never transforming them (the 'bot modes are a friggin' joke on pretty much all of them) but their colors are so abhorrent that I would be tempted to hit the paint aisle on the way to the cash register. I'd be better off just picking up a model kit of the vehicles.
I'm honestly trying really hard to lighten up a bit on my attitude about the movie and the figures and not be such a royal prick about the whole thing but Hasbro isn't throwing me any bones here. They would have gotten a second purchase out of me with this one if it weren't such an obnoxious color. The whole "trench-coat" thing going on isn't helping the situation either. Unless Keanu Reeves were voicing the character and they did this design as an intentional inside joke, this is just a lame idea and it transfers horribly on the toy.

These are the first images of this figure that make me interested in the toy... I was worried that the cape was simply kibble, but I can see it working well...

decisions decisions...

Anyone noticed the toothpick in the mouth (see boxart), duster coat, dual wielding pistols.....Chow Yun Fat from the film A Better Tomorrow anyone??

Well I have to give props to them for Crosshairs. They engineered the figure so that people aren't calling it 'horrible, ugly, obvious, brick-like kibble', they're calling it a 'trenchcoat'.

Kudos for fooling the community into thinking the kibble looks 'cool' vs. seeing it as yet another lazy-butt shellformer.

Kibble isn't always necessarily a bad thing. It can help change the sillohuette of a figure and make it look like more than just a humanoid robot. Starscream's wings and shoulder vanes, Prowl's door wings and Shrapnel's "horns" are all technically kibble, and yet they are fundamental parts of the character's design- they give them the distinctive look that we all love. Crosshair's trenchcoat-kibble is a similar phenomenon. It sets him apart from the other robots and gives him a unique shape, in addition to being somewhere to store the bits of car. Plus, it's part of the actual character model, so we can't blame Hasbro for this one.

Also, surely a car Autobot that doesn't follow the "Back of car becomes legs, front of car becomes chest, doors become wings" formula is a good thing?

Construct-Bot Grimlock is better-looking than Voyager Grimlock.

And I noticed something: Construct-Bots uses a numbering system too, only with E (which I think stands for "Episode") instead of Series. Great, more obscure info to document :lol:

The Dinos look pretty decent, but I'm kind of the fence with this line.

Strafe looks kinda generic without his shoulder-pteranodon-heads thing. On the other hand, he'd make an excellent base for a Hun-Grrrrr custom.
Actually, you could probably make all kinds of crazy monster TFs with these...

Now that Construct-Bots look pretty decent, I think I'll start picking some up.
