I honestly don't care what this guy looks like (hopefully badarse though), but I'll have to get him because he's an R8 :grin: I love that car! I'm curious who this guy is though.

OK...I have a theory about all these blurry pictures.

They are taken by the same person, but his eyes are bad. As a result, when he focuses the camera it's clear for him but blurry for the rest of the universe.

On the figure, sweet alt mode. I like the face too (even my wife commented she thought the face looked "cool and very, very evil"...not that I listen to what she says that much 8) ). Can we get a from-the-chest-down pic please? :P

(Why is it the first thing that came to mind after I wrote that sentence was Meghan Fox?)

Well, if you're talking about resemblance to a G1 mold, then yes. But we know that the movie-verse isn't all that worried about staying true to any previous continuity... it could be just about anyone, from Wildrider or another Stunticon, to Runabout/Runamuck, to a totally original character like Barricade... or perhaps it is someone like Barricade, or Scorponok, or even MEGATRON in a new body.

Could be anything. :)

Barricade was only about 99% new. ;) New character and such, but his name like Blackout was taken from a Micromaster no one would otherwise remember, for the sake of keeping the convention of all the in-the-movie guys having G1 names. If obscure ones.

Robot looks awful, though it's probably mistransformed.

If I had to guess the name of this new figure, it would be either Breakdown or Wildrider. Hasbro already named a figure after one of the Stunticons (Dead End), why not after another?

looks sexy I wonder why it's missing audi badges? I can understand the rear one missing for the faction symbol but why not have one on the front grill like the real one?

Beautiful alt mode. Hideous robot mode! Didn't Cybertron Crosswise already have an alt mode just like this? Why couldn't they have just reused that?

i wonder if the insignia is missing because of licensing probs - audi is a VW owned company ad we all know their stance on war related toys
