Ooh. Webdiver. Mmm. Why must you torture me so? I've wanted those since the early '00s.

It look like what they've given us is a cheap knock-off. The Beambox console is like one of those 50-games-in-1 consoles that they sell at kiosks in the mall at Christmas. It's not a big-budget modern console video game with unlockable characters; it's a collection of simple kid-friendly games, probably no more sophisticated than your average free Flash browser game or Leapfrog game. Buying new figurines unlocks new games, not new content in the same game. Comparing this to Skylanders or Disney Infinity is like comparing the Go-Bot Stacks to Masterpiece Optimus Prime.

Hasbro should stick to making Transformers figures and stop trying to imitate every new toy fad that comes down the pike.
