I don't suppose anyone got a chance to see any Star Wars stuff from Hasbro? Was there even a Star Wars area?

Getting him will be expensive. And I don't feel like buying the set again just for the head

Someone used the skytread titan master for Cab and I'm actually surprised that neither Hasbro or Takara thought to use a titan master for a combiner head.

Star Wars toys are never out on public display when the next movie and toyline comes out at the end of the year... it is too long for competitors and cheap chinese imitations to get product out first.
That's why the Bumblebee movie toys were hidden as well. If the Movie hadn't been pushed back to December, the toys would have been out on display, because they would be out in stores in about 6 weeks time.

The only people allowed into the sealed rooms are those who sign non-disclosure agreements, and Hasbro only let Product Buyers of the Major retailers do that.
People who do gain authorised access into the rooms and looked at the toys, they wouldn't want to risk saying anything about it.

TR Hosehead would be a good mod for inferno, but I can't see how you're going to modify the head to take a TR figure. Can anyone point me to a shapeways mod for CW Hotspot?

My thoughts exactly

Why they didn't do that, who knows. Probably not worth the time to engineer it. That's why I made my own

I may just buy Inferno and that shapeways mod. The head, I will just try to repaint Heavytread instead of trying to get the released one in the Ginrai set
