So is Bumblebee the new leader of the Autobots?

Because that's all I ever see with Construct-Bots. Bumblebee going off against the Decepticons. >:oP

There are two comedic events in this video that also happened in Beast Wars, both of which even involved Megatron. :lol:

But, I'm perfectly sure it's just a coincidence, since they were both straight outta the style of Looney Tunes. ;)

They used part of this video for a commercial. Quite frankly, I hate the Construct-Bots commercial. I also hate all of the toy commercials after PRiD.

It's primarily KRE-O's fault. Transformers commercials in general have used bad sound effects and awkward animations of CGIs of the toys since then. Beast Hunters is a prime example. :roll:

These damn things are gathering dust at my local target preventing new stock from being put in it's place. So who's the corporate genius from Hasbro who swears all kids desire to build their toys ???

Probably the guy who saw how successful LEGO and Mega Bloks have been doing for many years and said, "Hey, let's get in on some of that." ;)

Plus, Hasbro saw how much people enjoyed making custom figures at BotCon, so they played around with that idea and thus Construct-Bots became a reality.

I just wish they weren't so expensive. And, as I usually harp on when talking about these, armor sets that come in different colors for uniformity when making custom Transformers.

And I actually want the Unicron Megatron Construct-Bots figure to use as a stand-in for a real TF: Prime version.
