A new head too? With that, the figure got interesting.

Of all the BotCon figures we've seen so far, Rapido is the one that makes it all worthwhile to me. This is what I was looking for when I first heard they were doing a G2 Set. Now just repaint it into Skram, lol.

Much better than the Smokescreen repaint! The blue works wonderfully with the red. I really wish I hadn't missed the whole Classics\Universe boat - it looked really interesting. :BANG_HEAD:

I love it! I find it too bad it's not in the boxed set.

Add-on, or freebie? New head on a freebie? Not likely.

Ooooh, very very niiiiice. I like this one a lot. Wow, I thought we were just gonna get another prowl head, but this boost the guy up by 1000x.

From what I was hinted at, Slicer will be the Freebie, so this should be an add-on figure. Again, only going from my source.

I'm diggin' this guy too. New head really works here. Also, Slicer? You mean SG Wheeljack don't you? :lol: One way or the other I'll have two, since my girl's getting the figs too. Well, basically I'm getting them. Heh.

Are you sure it's a new head? Rapido's head was already pretty close to Universe Prowl's that it didn't really need any modifications.

Bah!! G2 Slicer, SG Wheeljack. I'll call him Don Johnson and be done with it. I do think he's SG WJ because of the molded faction symbol, but I've been told Slicer. Ya know...if ya do want to get rid of the xtra... :D

It's easy to remove the molded :BOT:, look at Cybertron Jetfire and Overhaul. You know, they could play it as Slicer under the guise of SG Wheeljack...

Yeah, it's a new head mold.

ACTOYS pic is much bigger.

This is such an unusual and obscure choice for a figure, especially with a new head mold....

I LOVE IT!

Really really tempted to get this guy now.
