It looks good too.

I almost think Runamuck looks better.

Loving the paint job for the alt mode. Soo looking forward to adding these two to my collection. Alt mode and bot modes really work well with these two. I won't have the wings deployed in bot mode, I'll just have them tucked under to make them closer to their G1 look. I want them NAOW!

It's a rub symbol, just peel it off! That is, if you actually get it. These guys a pretty pricey...

I was kind of hoping Runabout would be made using the tracks mold so they could be slightly different.

That's how it looked in G1, rubsign on roof, and logo on hood. :P

Wow, I think that he looks better than Runamuck. The only problem I foresee with these figures is an off-center Decepticon logo on the hood/legs. :CON:

Like I said about Runamuck, I'll say it about Runabout. I fail to see the need for a rubsign when there's a ginormous :CON: logo right there on the car's hood.

So what if the G1 toys had them? The fiction didn't use them on these two.

Anywho, like 'Muck, 'Bout looks great. :D

Would be nice if the purchaseable figure had a box insert that could accommodate both this figure, and the year's "freebie" figure, together. Because, let's face it, Runabout and Runamuck are inseparable. They're bros. Ro-bros.

That's not the actual toy, it's a photoshopped image of the Runamuck preview.

Nice RotF Dead End homage btw.

both look pretty good in their mock ups and the mode is one of the best in the generations - fortunately i never had a feel for these guys - always hated over simplistic transformers as a kid (though the duocons did grow on me) - so i'm not disappointed on missing out on these

if i did have them tho - i'd tuck their wings in and hide them as the originals didn't have these

i'm pretty happy with my tracks and wheeljack

Way cooler than boring white Runamuck. I wish THIS was the free membership figure instead!

I think I've said it before on here, but, dammit, I'll say it again;

I've shelled out on an international membership (and will have to renew to get Runamuck) - these better be available for a reaonable amount of time - I want this, Runamuck and SG Drift, and one of my biggest pet peeves are these elitist 'short production runs'! :evil:

Yeah, I'll be getting these... and doing the backpack tuck I saw online. (basically folding the flaps behind the back, then tucking the missiles down into them.) Doesn't require any modification and locks the parts in tightly. Between that and the head swap, these guys will look great on the ole shelf.

I'm, without a doubt, buying both Runabout and Runamuck. Awesome molds, awesome characters. Can't wait.

They toy looks neat and I just finished reading the bio, and all I could think of as reading it is this is essentially Michael Bay the toy. His bio has him getting a hard on for explosions much like said hack. I find it funny.
