Site sponsor BigBadToyStore.com has posted images and a preorder for one of the next Transformers Stealth Force releases. This deluxe class, monster truck, aptly named BIG HOSS, has a cool, flamed out paint job and "transforms" to reveal multiple front cannons, side exhaust guns, and rear mortars extending from the bed. There's no word yet on the origin of the name, although UrbanDictionary.com defines Big Hoss as, "describing a person, place, event, or action that is done greatly, strongly, manly, and sometimes even beastly" which certainly fits here. One could also speculate that the name is a nod to the show Pawn Stars that recently featured an episode with a massive Transformers collection. Corey aka "Big Hoss" is the manager of the pawn shop on the show.

Big Hoss is listed as part of Hasbro's Stealth Force deluxe wave 2 and is expected in January.

Let the crazy speculation begin as to whether this is a new bot in DOTM, an upcoming expanded Bayniverse character with no media appearances, someone from TF Prime, a nonsentient vehicle designed to combat TFs, or just a one-off toy for a character we'll never see in robot mode, created solely because kids who frequent the Hot-Wheels aisle devoted to boring cars that don't DO anything just love them bigfoot trucks!

I vote for none of the above. My guess is somewhere along the way Hasbro lost the license to the name Big Daddy within the last two years. Wanting to still evoke the macho majesty of such a classic name (yes, I'm snickering as well, people), some executive who watched too much "Bonanza" as a child stepped in to save the day.

I steered clear (no pun intended) of MASK cos I thought it was a TF rip-off. I'm steering clear of Stealth Force cos I think it's a MASK rip-off. And cos it's lame.

Actually those Nascar gunner bots are autobots, and more specifically the WRECKERS!!!!

I like the ones based on the movie characters but I think they're far too expensive. I do feel compelled to press the buttons on them all when I'm in Toys R Us though even (or maybe because) it annoyed a particular staff member there.

Does the existence of this toy imply that there is going to be a similar transforming (Deluxe?) figure? Hasn't every other Stealth Force vehicle been based on an existing transforming figure?

These toys are actually really fun. I own a few of them and my 1 1/2 year old son and I play with them a lot!

Not all have other toy representations that do robot modes.

The Stealthforce line always seems like Hasbro is missing the point. No Robot = Not a Transformer. I don't care if weapons pop out of a car, lots of toy lines and cartoons do that.

I kind of like the Soundwave one, but that's just because I'm a freak for Transformers Animated.
