Nice touch making his spare tire a gun; I used to pretend it was a little Gatling gun firing behind him in jeep mode. IIRC, he had a firepower of 1 to reflect his not having a gun, and none of the others had guns most of the time in the comics because Ratbat sent them to Earth unarmed, a nice reflection of the fact that you couldn't really even pretend they could wield weapons with their immobile arms.
Hmm, I don't see Wideload's silhouette. He was unique for a dump truck, so it'd be a shame not to take a crack at him. Scale issues though...

Here I thought I was the only one to notice Wideload's silhouette missing from the pic. Freeway was a blue Corvette and that looks like his silhouette in the middle while the white Searchlight and the red Chase could fit for both left and right silhouettes, leaving the bottom one to be the gold Goldbug, the Bumblebee upgrade.
Personally, I'd rather the orange and blue Wideload be made as opposed to the gold Goldbug. If Not-Rollbar's vehicle and robot forms are any indication, these figures are going to be very cool.

Still, I know I'll pick it up. Looks great otherwise.

Hope they do make a Wideload as well. Gotta have the whole set.

If they do release the others i'll skip Goldbug as i just got the Renderform Gold Scout kit and that will look fantastic when i put that on my United Bee.
Btw i agree with what others said, if they really want to do the others they should definately not skip Wideload.
Perhaps these figures will have the pull-back engine feature?

Only if they're bricks, for G1 accuracy!
But yeah, this guy looks great. Who's making it and possibly the others?

Only slight complaint is that those bumps on his chest/roof will make it difficult to place an Autobot insignia on there.
Looking at the silhouette, it appears Goldbug will be based on the new VW Beetle which is exactly how it should be.
