DIABEETUS

Seen pics of this guy for awhile (almost a year i think) and thanks to Takatomy it's finally released: Animated Blackout. Tho he appeared only for lil bit in the season 3 opener, he's kinda popular with a following from the '07 movie. The design and transformation is very similar to the movie version, which is not a bad thing.


Proportions in robot mode is similar to guys like Bulkhead and Lugnut. And like Lugnut the weapon forms the rear end of the alt mode. Fans got a kick out of seeing 1st pics of this guys head design which resembles Wilford Brimley (known in the US for his work as a diabetes spokesperson but otherwise is notable for his role in John Carpenter's The Thing).
