I wasn't expecting to like this figure but it's actually a really fun toy! This figure's head kinda reminds me of old B.O.B. from The Black Hole. Haven't got time to type up a review tonight so I'll just let the pictures do most of the talking.

Bike mode with trailer attached




Stand alone bike mode


Repair bay


Robot mode


Super Robot Mode


Weapon deployed


T-B.O.B.


Overall: Highly recommended!

But what a WEIRD name "Autobot Sqweeks" is. This means that:
a/ The name "Squeaks" wasn't available so they went with the incorrect spelling of "Sqweeks."
b/ Someone has already trademarked "Sqweeks!" WTH?!? Who the hell trademarks "Sqweeks"?? Are there people who are just squatting on deliberately misspelt trademarks for the fun of it?
c/ Hasbro was either unwilling or unable to get away with any other variant spelling like Sqweaks... so they had to attach "Autobot" on the front of the name.

But this also shows just how bizarre the world of trademark law is. We all know that Hasbro are now in a legal case with DC over their use of "Bumblebee," but that's absolutely nothing considering that someone, somewhere, is able to contest Hasbro over SQWEEKS! Sqweeks!

"Sqweeks" one comes up with one record http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/showfi...802:pm3uqt.3.1.
"Squeaks" appears to be super popular with a plethora of kids toys http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/bin/showfi...h=Submit+Query.

So it seems like they were just trying to be safe than sorry (fyi - from what I've read, the opposition process can be lengthy and painful).
