I just noticed that they've got the movie symbols on them instead of the old school Autobot and Decepticon symbols.

The Prime one isnt bad but Megatron isnt that good. His head looks weird.

I'm actually really excited about these. This is the kind of thing that people who aren't into Transformers will think are awesome. It's a whole new take on the "objectformers" aspect of the Transformers. Yes, these are most certainly some oddball items but that's what I like most about them. I most definitely can see why these wouldn't be appealing to a lot of fans. It should be intersting to do galleries of these weird guys.

Wow. And I thought the Transformers line was whored out to the deepest extent in the 80's... if you had told me when I was 8 years old that they would make Transformers shoes that actually transformed into Megatron and Optimus Prime there is no doubt they would have shown up on my christmas list... fast forward 20 years though and somehow at 28 these transforming shoes don't seem very cool... at all.

Not only do they transform into the shoes, but they're wearing them as well! How cool is that?

I gots to get me some Nikes! ;P

They're not horrible, kinda fun looking actually, but I think I'll stick to getting the last of the Classics line I'm missing and the new movie toys instead of these.

From marketing perspective, I agree. From being a big fan/collector, I feel "repeatedly violated" especially after even darth vader or his jet could transform, and the same thing with the pathetic power rangers. I dunno know.

I'm failing to see how these things are even wearable. Wouldn't they just fall apart after running around the block? I can't see how they would be very comfortable either.

I just hope that anyone who buys them are satisfied with their purchase... it will be hard to sell a pair of these USED after a transnerd has put their feet in them. :p

I'm guessing that they are not actually wearable, though I guess I haven't seen it stated one way or the other. Just the practicality alone would preclude these being molded in, what, 12 different sizes?
