Awesome! I'm grabbing three of this thing! One to put with the other transformers, one to probably keep in a box and forget about, and the other to send to a guy who can make it look like something from Mad Max. :KREMZEEK:

It's been a looong time since I have come across a tranforming toy of any kind and actually thought to myself "I NEED this!" rather than just simply wanting it. This is one I NEED to get. That is so cool. About time someone made a Transforming bus and I'm glad to see that they didn't cop out and go with a standard bus but instead went straight to an articulated one.

COOL!!!

I've always wanted a bus TF!

I don't know why, I just always thought it was a vehicle they were sorely missing.

I've got one on preorder now. Thanks for the tip.

I've wanted a Bus transformer FOREVER!

It's a shame that Hasbro couldn't provide. Oh well, I'll slap a sticker on him and display him with the rest.

Never before used alt mode? I'm down, but not entirely sold until I see some actual toy pics.

Pretty darn excited, though. Plus, the sword and head sculpt are somewhat reminiscent of Drift.

It's pretty cool, but what exactly does it have to do with transformers? :CON:

Okay, now please remold it to look like the one from Jurassic Park II, and give us a few modified Mercedes-Benz SUVs to go with it.

Yeah, I can see Hasbro making a new character from this. Bus-tron? Naw, that ain't gonna work. Can anyone think of a good name?

Aside from the fact that the guy who designed this also designed the Nike Shoe figures, nothing.

But a site sponsor wanted up to post it, so we did.

It's also a transforming bus/robot. I think a lot of people on this site like robots that transform into things, whether they are officially Transformers, or just transforming figures.

I love the idea of a transforming bus. I always wanted a story about a group of autobots that got the short end of the stick when it came to alt modes. A bus was always one I would have put in it. A golf cart would also be a good one for that story. Oh yeah.. a refrigerator too :grin:

Broadside (F: Pretty appropriate)

Interseting, if it were an in-store thing, then a definate yes, my first thought was Alternators Ultra Magnus. A little blocky, but then so was UM.

Yes, I know there's an MP Maggy, (did the trailer armor project ever go anywhere?) but the ALt Prime ain't a semi, so there.
