Nice. An Autobot triplechanger.

He is a robot, not a monkey. If he was a monkey that maybe he could be MOOOOOJO JOJO. But MOOOOOJO JOJO is not a robot, he is a monkey. For only a monkey could be MOOOOOJO JOJO. Not a robot.

I like it. Especially how he's a triple-changer. I wonder what size class his figure will be with him having three modes, but he doesn't seem like he would be taller than Prime.

It would make for a cool toy.

Really cool alt-modes, but I really don't like the Mojo-bot.

i wonder how the toy is gonna be like. how do they hide those giant wheels? he's pretty slim to have a bulky pickup truck as an altmode. anyway the design looks cool. he still looks like mojo jojo though. :P

If Hasbro pulls off this alt-mode with that bot mode, I will take back every bad thing I have ever said about them.

I don't think it's a pickup so much as it's a subcompact convertable type of thing...along the lines of an El Camino but smaller.

Good, but I don't think your response was long enough to really successfully copy the pattern of MOOOOOOOJO JOJO. :mrgreen:

I am not a big fan of the look of his head, but I like the take on his alt mode. Very creative while a reference to G1. I will buy this when it comes out in toy form.

He'll need to be voyager sized to pull these forms off with any degree of success I think

I like how his midsection in robot mode echos the Autobot symbol. Very nice subtle design touch.

If they manage to translate this design into a toy I will be immensely impressed.

Cool, I like it! IF they make a toy I'd definitely buy it.

I'm with all the others who don't see how they're gonna pull off that skinny robot with such a bulky alt mode. Maybe, as suggested it could be done with a Voyager class fig. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

If you have a look at the sheets, it states that what people say is the pick up mode is in fact his Microscope mode.

Wow awesome, so he will be a voyager then?

Only thing i don't like are his glasses, what's up with that?

I'm skeptical about how they are going to implement him, but they have done some nice work on keeping the TFA line really close in both modes.
