Well played, Hasbro... well played. Not a huge fan of the Botshots, but I have to admit I have grabbed a few of the G1 inspired ones like Jetfire and Powerglide and now I if I come across one of these Optimus ones I will have to pick it up to stick on my desk somewhere because he does look pretty cool and you can never have enough tiny Optimii :D

What are the extra doo-hickies there? I wonder if they're taking a cue from those Angry Birds games and adding blocks that you can set up and try to knock down by launching your Bot Shots at them.?

^That's actually a really fun idea. Gives you something else to do with them especially if kids don't have another player.

Yay G1 Prime! I already have the first Prime mold but I'll need to pick this one up too. The launcher's a bit weird, but maybe I can mix & match.

Nope. Not getting. I may love the crap out of toys that either homage or is a legitimate representation of the Generation 1 character it supposed to look like, but there's absolutely no way on God's green Earth I'm getting a single Bot Shot. [-(

But Optimus does look pretty nice...

It's true, Mindmaster! Try one and you're hooked for life. Do it!

They're pretty cool gizmos. I just...have more important figures to buy.

Everything ships out of Hong Kong and their shipping rates aren't too bad considering they are international rates.
