Im not feeling a Decepticon as a "good guy" vechicle. It might be a neat way to hide from the Autobots or spy. But how does a fire truck help futher the Decepticon cause ??? Seriously, who is he going to save ???

And the only reason Barricade was cool cause he was painted Black giving him an evil touch. :twisted:

This is probably this best looking PCC we've seen so far in my opinion. I'm liking the clear plastic minicons more now. I just wish the combining ports weren't light blue... #-o

Impressive poseability. Is anyone else getting an almost samurai-ish feel from this fig, especially the head? I like it. Very much. Looking forward to this line more now.

What's disappointing? The back area where you can see the head? Honestly, I've seen worse (looking at Cybertron Red Alert). For a scout sized figure, it's fine. I'm actually very excited about Smolder's potential. Plus I love me some mini-cons.

About the only thing I don't like are the blue colored connectors. They don't blend well with the rest of the figure.

Trying to decide whether to do to Chopster what I did to a bunch of my Energon weapons recently - spray him down with black primer.

I just keep thinking of one of Methusalen's Heavy Metal War characters from back in the day:

Name: Firetruck
Allegiance: Decepticon
Function: Rescue Worker
Alt-mode: Fire Truck
Primary Weapon: Liquid Frozian Fire Suppressant

Motto: “Woo-Woo-Woo! Honk! Honk!”

Decepticons often have a hard time finding medics and rescue workers, as their general philosophy tends to discourage such altruism. Because of this, Hellfyre Inc. was only too happy to embrace and nurture Burnout’s mental breakdown.

Burnout was a promising young graduate student at the Decepticon Military Academy on Char, studying in Pyrotechnic Demolition. By his seventh year at the academy, he was only three credit hours away his masters, but a flat tire on the way to the academy from his dorm, caused him to miss his last final. Well known for being harsh, the administration failed Burnout, revoking all his credit hours, blacklisting him from the school, and refusing to buy back his text-books.

Burnout cracked. No one knows why exactly, but after two years as a babbling mess, he came to believe he was a terrestrial fire truck. He began running to and fro, screaming at the top of his lungs, while rescuing bots, cons, and, well, everything. He even pulled Ravage out of a tree (much to Ravage’s protestations). He ceased to acknowledge the name Burnout, and only responded to being called Firetruck.

Methusalen took advantage of Firetruck’s peculiar mental state, and reprogrammed Firetruck’s onboard “Friend or Foe” Computer to recognize Autobots as fires. He then filled the confused con’s water tanks with liquid Frozian, and unleashed him.

Firetruck now careens about the battlefield, spraying Autobots and fires alike with his ultra-low temperature fire suppressant, smashing through building with his arm mounted fire axe, and performing field repairs on damaged Decepticons with his built in surgical X-Ray laser and newly installed medical protocols package.

Abilities: Suppressed knowledge of pyrotechnics and arson makes the subject a gifted firefighter. Upgrades provided by Methusalen make him an effective combat medic. His Liquid Frozian fire suppressant is able to retard the flow of energy through enemy circuits, slowing them down, and fractures most forms of light armor easily. The fire suppressant can be lethal to Autobots who are poorly sealed or who already have open wounds. Fire-axe makes for an effective melee weapon, though he has no formal training in its use.

Weaknesses: Subject is almost impossible to reason with, minimizing his tactical effectiveness, and occasionally making him a liability.

No-one. He's a firetruck. He starts the fires and sits back with some marshmallows on a stick.

I'm far more interested in the 2-packs than the 5-packs.

I'm liking this guy. For a scout sized figure he's pretty impressive. I don't really like the blue connector ports but whatev.

He looks like he can hide his connector ports in his bot-mode.

I love this figure.

I can't wait, and I hope we got tons of Minicons.

Nice to finally get a sense of scale for these guys.

I'm getting psyched for Power Core Combiners!

Got to admit, it's growing on me. If I had the space, I'd condsider it. If my sons were older, I'd get it for them for sure. They'd be all over it.

I'm still on the fence about these guys. Just not feeling it and i wish hasbro would have colored the blue pegs or combining points the same color as the figure, then i think it would have looked abit better.

Verdict: I'll wait until i see them in person and then my decision will be made.

Decepticon bases have fires too, so someone has to put those out. I doubt even the crazy version of Galvatron would let most of the base be destroyed just cause there is a fire and NO ONE was able to put them out.

What's disappointing? That Hasbro didn't make this a better figure by hiding the robot parts. This is not a scout size figure, as a PCC leader, it is slightly smaller that deluxe. After many excellent scout and deluxe figures, it IS disappointing to get a figure with a gaping hole on the back. Also, I really dislike how the connectors disrupt the robot mode, and on top of that, Hasbro decided to highlight the extrusions with that clashing baby-blue. :roll:
