I like Taco Bell. But I only get to have it maybe once a decade since there are no Taco bell locations here in Newfoundland

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

For now, this is announced as a Universal Studios Singapore exclusive.
He'll probably be available at Universal Studios Hollywood later though.

At NYCC Hasbro said there was going to be a mass release version too with different packaging and (likely) colors from the Universal Studios version.

He looks like a decent design, if not just a little generic. I'd like to see some kind of neat homage done with him. Sorry to the homage haters, but you've already got your new character version coming out right here. icon-fire.gif

So is this what the ride vehicle will look like? The four seats and open top make think so.

Cool design, looking forward to seeing a finished copy.

I'm still curious why Singapore gets the ride first. I've no doubt the toy will be available in all Universal parks when we get the ride here. Hasbro said there would be a wide release of this? That surprises too given that it's a theme park ride exclusive.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

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?

Well that's certainly a Transformer in the movie style. An actual paint job will probably make him look a little better. And clearer pictures.

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

The only thing I don't like about this guy is his name. Yeah, it makes sense regarding his role in the ride, but Evac already exists as a movieverse character and looks nothing like this. And yes, I'm aware that a 2-time repaint character that didn't appear in the films themselves is of secondary concern to coming up with a character that's the audience's link to the interactive movie ride, but still, some continuity would be appreciated. Like, he could have been "Getaway"/Breakaway.

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.
