I've seen Bot Shots in stores and for what they are they're certainly not cheap. So with that in mind are they really aimed at kids, or are they just a sneaky way to keep the 30yr olds collecting.
And be honest now - none of you are actually using them as game pieces are you? Nobody actually uses the silly slamming-together functionality for entertainment.
Considering that Bakugan, Beyblade, and other such simple "collect and fight" games are exceedingly popular with the kids, yes, making a Transformers version of that is indeed a great way to keep the cash flowing in.
You don't have to like it, but it's popular with the young'uns.
