Not to steal your thunder, or anything, but...these links don't seem to work.

Might I offer this link from seibertron.com?

Glad to finally see pictures of Bonecrusher surfacing. Pity, no pictures of tan, stretchy-arm, monster 'bot mode for us

Can't say much about Swindle....

Yup, the sadist bot. I thought that Bonecrusher was supposed to be a voyager sized figure, or not?

Yeah - preorder prices are higher for him than Deluxes too. But, even if the initial release is a Deluxe, it's likely a Voyager version may come along in time. Would like to see the toy's 'bot mode...

Most, if not all, of the movie characters get multiple-price point and gimmick toys. I don't know why Hasbro is insisting on this, 'cause it never works...

It will allow you got get better scaled versions of the toys, at least. Get the cars in Delux, the military vehicles in Voyager.

Wait, isn't there a third size? (aside from the little ones?) Actually, that might be kind of cool to get a Scorpinok and Frenzy as one of the mini-con sized toys.

Yeah, I checked it last night, I bet that's supposed to be this Swindle (interesting name choice, but ah well). So, the question I've been having though is I don't understand why all the Decepticons in the comic have this Shockwave homage going on. I can understand it with the Seekers (since they're all kind of clone-drones) but why Swindle and whoever that other Skids-esque looking Decepticon have those heads? What makes Barricade and Brawl (which I think were the only other Decepticons besides Megatron to be seen in the comic...but only in sillouette) special? Why do they get normal heads? And the Autobots...they all had normal heads too.

Thoughts?

You say this because you have looked at Hasbro's books from when they've done this in the past, or are you basing your opinion on the multiple price-range/multiple gimmick toylines from other unsuccessful past-days superhero rehash movies such as Spiderman, Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men, new Star Wars etc?

Both. I am a stockholder in Hasbro.

Both look great in robot modes!

Bonecrusher is a definite must... Darn it! Too many interesting and fun robot modes coming out of this movie line... Gotta prioritise...

Bonecrusher is sweet looking, but he definately needs to be a Voyager figure. :\

I hear ya. The Voyager-size seems to be the sweet spot for the movie line.
