A microscope that turns into a demonic battlebot?

Definitely getting that.

Plus, being a scout-class figure, you might actually be able to have other TFs 'use' him.

Dunerunner looks nice, but he'd be strange in a collection with Landmine. Wish they had just repainted LM instead.

My God! What did they do to Perceptor. His alt mode reminds me of something else. Like robots from a horror movie, or those Replicators from Stargate. But I can't pin down which one.

Scalpel looks cool ad I'll applaud the new design. To bad I just don't care for either of them.

The best thing about Scalpel? The name.

Still, interesting to see these new designs. Just not interesting enough to purchase.

What all it is is name retention by Hasbro. Hell I wouldn't have put it past them to call it "Mindbender"

I'll have to look at these in person before I decide how I fell about getting these scouts. :-?

I'm just glad to see it isn't just a miniaturized Landmine fig...it's a new mold altogether.

Scalpel is my kinda bot! Love it!

I know they seem to be going for "package in bot mode" this time around, but I really think Scalpel would look far more appealing packaged in alt mode.
Re: New ROTF Figues: Dune Runner & Scalpel (905295)
Posted by Wheeljack144 on April 1st, 2009 @ 1:00pm CDT
so why isnt dunerunner hound?

seriously, why is that?

scalpel...I'm on the fence. I still want to see more humanoid bots and cons, but ill see how it looks when it goes on youtube.

So wall-e and jonny 5 have a baby it rebels and joins the decepticons........yeah that thing is fugly. Like the concept but hate the execution. Dune Runners cool though. These are scout right? If thats the case Scaple might have been worth buying as a deluxe or voyager just for the alt mode.

Scalpel looks crappy in the package, in that photo at least, but based on the artwork on the back it looks like cool toy and one that I'll buy. It reminds me of The Mysterians.

I was thinking this myself. Minicon, and Cobra Evil Doctor... Names just seem odd.

Will definitely get Dune Runner. Love Basic cars, they go so well with the Diaclones.

Scalpel remind me why I'm buying less TF's in the last 2 years. Between, Animated, Robot heroes, Star Wars and the Movie, I'm not liking the drift from the traditioanl TF head. Especially this thing, reminds me of the awful Mini-cons.
Re: New ROTF Figues: Dune Runner & Scalpel (905334)
Posted by Valandar on April 1st, 2009 @ 2:24pm CDT
So Scalpel is a bug. Meh. Blargh.

Dunerunner, though... if a line (G1) can have Hound, Roadbuster, and Swindle, then I can have both Dunerunner and Landmine. :D

LOL! Yeah he is.

Sad to say, but I won't be purchasing either of these though. So far this line is a bigger fail than the last one, but I'm sure there's more to be revealed. My list of wants is still only 2.

Could Scalpel be that bug bot we saw in the movie trailer?

Scalpel looks interesting, I'll wait for a video review first. I don't care about dune runner, since I got land mine.

Posted by Zeds on April 1st, 2009 @ 5:22pm CDT
The designers really took a crap over all these figures eh? I will be savings tonnes of money as most of these will never make them through my door. Still looking forward to the movie irrespective.

Well, a microscope-bot figure? That hasn't been done in a long time. Scalpel's an interesting name, i like the look of the alt-mode what with it being a surgical microscope as fitting his nature and bio, though the spindly insectoid bot mode might take some getting used to though it's also cool. That, with his descriptive bio mkes him rather nice IMO, I like him, I'll get him! Dune Runner looks nice as well, but him, I'm not so sure about.

...What's that wallet, you say you've had enough? Awww come now what's the - don't you dare sprout legs now and run away from me comebackheredammit!

Never liked perceptor and i dont like Scalpel. Its all about scale. I just cant see having a microscope the size of another figure that transforms into a car. They could have madehim a mini-figure like they did with Frenzy that came with deluxe Barricade and include him with deluxe Soundwave. This would look better for display purposes.

Dune Runner will probably be a pass, but I am liking Scalpel--especially since it seems he will be in the movie.

Posted by Down_Shift on April 2nd, 2009 @ 9:56am CDT
Ladies and Gentleman, I would like to introduce you to the NEW Armada: Lazerbeak... Scalpel!

BOoooooooooooooooooooooo

Dune Runner might be the only figure I pick up out of this line so far.
