Using the term "TRANSTECH" is a cruel selling point for hopeful fans.

Fortunately, I have no hope in that matter.

Those role play items have been all over the place here for about two months now. They're not worth my money, but they might be fun for a kid.

I'm just hoping that they will have restocked their FAB's and Deluxes by this sale, getting really sick of seeing empty shelves and pegs.

Could be a copyright issue. ie they need to show that they've used it otherwise it can't be renewed.

Oh, is that the stupid "look, an everyday item turns into a crossbow" line? If so...big deal. I thought for some reason the unreleased Transtech prototypes had been released, and I was all excited. Now I feel really stupid.

Changed the title so as not to get more poor Yankee's hopes up!

Cruel just same. Though if it is a copyright thing like you said, maybe they have plans to revive TransTech in someway...eventually.

It's probably some "brilliant" Hasbro idea to make non-functional kitchen and hair care products that turn into robots and laser weapons. Watch out for the evil of Spatulator!

You guys are screwed as badly as we are in CANADA with the pricing. $90 AUD for a leader. PLEASE!

Transtech is just collecting dust here. The only one I bought was the digital dagger.

Longs for the days of G1 where we only had to worry about Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak wanting to be Autobots, Swoop calling himself Tracks and Slingshot calling himself Slingslot!
