Perhaps they were able to make room for it first. Or perhaps Universal Studios Singapore needed a boost.

It looks like he cribs a lot of robot design from Roadbuster. The split hood-pecs, the shoulder and hip wheels, the girder-legs... even has the kneepads and "wings" on the inside of the ankle.
I'd wager he even transforms much the same way as the Roadbuster deluxe figure. Not much originality there, IMO. It's not a terrible thing, as I really liked Roadbuster's design. Could have stood for it being less obvious though... nix the girders in the shins or something.

Yes, but they said the packaging would be different and like the figure too (coloration / deco). This was from the Hasbro reps at NYCC 2011.

That's what is selling him to me.
I have a general dislike for the Movie robot aesthetic, but his being basically a transforming Universal Studios Themepark ride sells me the toy just for the uniqueness.
-ZacWilliam, same factor that sold me the little Transforming toaster guy. When is it ever gonna happen again?

Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

If they do a mass release, I'll probably get him. He looks neat enough to be background filler.

Anyway, he's still looking pretty cool, and I totally agree with the Wreckers comparison; it's like he's the fourth one (Twin Twist?). Also, I think I've decided his alt mode is cybertronian. I could buy into it being a stealth mode of an Earth car, but the overall look is futuristic enough to be cybertronian.
