So, let me get this straight: it's cheaper, it doesn't have any electronics, and it has far more articulation?

Woo! Should please everyone except those who've bought the first one.

We have a winner...

I just put my pre-order down for $49. It said it's scheduled to arrive in April/May, so I may actually have that much by then :D

Seriously though, the only other GF piece I've thought ordering is the Starscream, simply because Hasbro's putting out a bigger, dinkier version. I guess now I'll wait and see if they offer up the little one stateside, too, since I've met my limit for imports.

And if it's just some model kit or pvc, I'll cancel the order :D

the only way id get it is if it came out in the US, and it was a resonable price. i just got my galaxy convoy, and im happy with it. plus its in scale with all the other galaxy force transformers. a 5 inch galaxy convoy wouldnt look right standing next to the huge master megatron

Don`t worry, he`s fully articulated, can transform and combine and is made of die cast.

Sounds like they gave him the BT treatment, almost.

So, "HBS" evidently stands for "Hybrid Style".

Appear that this is not a toy, but a toyline
