I think TakaraTomy made a mistake of omitting the game mechanic of the toys. Rock-Paper-Scissors actually came from Asia no less.

How in the world did that horrible commercial last 3 minutes? :michaelbay:

It's interesting to see how different Transformers can be portrayed in Japan versus how they are handled here in the US.

YESSSS!!! I love you Japan. I can't stop smiling. The cute here is like... diet-cute-lite, next to this barrage of sugary goodness.

But I digress, is there a definitive list of these guys? I'm curious how many different variants there are from the USA release. (outside of them all having eyes, which is adorable. ADORABLE, I tell you!!!!!! :KREMZEEK: )

Well... that was, interesting. At least they found a use for the hole at the bottom of their feet.

I never understood why Takara omitted the whole "transformers" fact from this. I mean, who are they fooling, Optimus has his autobot insignia on his grill.

What could they possibly gain from marketing this as something non-transformers, with a race of oddly coloured robots that all best friends and engage in constant arm-flapping?

So this is a test-market item? Would have sold well if it was branded under TFs.

Also, did Bumblbee get a remolded head to resemble the G1 toy? What was the point of that? :-?

I sometime question Takara's decisions...

Am I going crazy or did anyone else notice the eye's in vehicle mode?

We all did, it's to add to the kawaii factor. :HALUC:

This is some kind of fever dream or hallucination or something, yeeeeeesh. Can't tell if I love or hate this thing!

Gonna need a gif of Optimus just staring.

Quite honestly, I love TOMY. But because I am selling a chunk of my collection in hopes of getting my Fort Max graded, I cannot even spend the time to look at these... Because then I'd be compelled to add a few things in what is supposed to be my more-focused collection! :sad:

Speaking of Fort Max... How would these guys look on my Max? They're about the right size. I know. We need Chromedome, Hardhead, Highbrow and Brainstorm in the line.

Do it, Tomy. DO IT.

Have any of these shown up for preorder anywhere? I gave a quick search and didn't see them at any of the usual stores. >:oP
