Thanks to a heads up from a handful of Seibertronians, we have a new video review for yet another upcoming figure from the Earthrise line! This video review comes to us from Kremzeek's Reviews and though short, does show off the figure in great detail, and shows the transformation for this new mold, which, unfortunately, includes a case of fake parts in robot mode.
This fan-voted character is scheduled for release in Wave 3 along with Sunstreaker, Trailbreaker, and Fasttrack. This wave should be out in the fourth quarter of this year, though with Wave 2 still not having shipped or shown up at brick-and-mortar retail, it's possible that it may be delayed.
So are you looking forward to getting this half of the Battlecharger duo? Let us know your thoughts and stay tuned to Seibertron for the latest in news and reviews!

Man... I look at Runamuck and just see... disappointment. The faux chest sucks, yeah, but honestly the fake wheels are worse imo. I've never been overly critical of undercarriage kibble before, but the fake wheels just sticking out under the car are really obvious, and their unpainted rims make them look fake in robot mode too. And apparently they prevent all four of the real wheels from touching the ground, so the car can't even roll. I've also been concerned about how well the alt mode tabs together ever since he was revealed, and this review pretty much confirms that it doesn't. Plus his legs look really hollow, and their transformation joint doesn't seem to tab in well...
Big F in the chat for my boy.

Only want him for his bot mode so I'll be waiting for discounts, doesnt give me hopes for the other battlecharger. Would have been better if the fake wheels were painted to match the real wheels in bot mode.

That car mode is having a hard time staying together. And come one Hasbro, a car that can't roll? I thought you had that mastered 40 years ago.
Too bad, because him and his brother are the ones I've been looking forward to the most this year.
