Frieza is reincarnated as a stapler?

Man, Dragon Ball Super is AMAZING.

"CURSE YOU, OPTIMOUSE PRIME!"

"Heheheheh. It looks like you're having trouble defeating the Officebots. Would you like some help with that, MIGHTY STAPLETRON?"

"SILENCE, STARSCREEN!"

We joke, but it would be the easiest thing for a company to just take the license and put autoot and decepticon symbols on office supplies. I am surprised we dont have that yet (unless we already do).

His red sparktwin Swingline was far superior, in my opinion.

But then, they switched from the Swingline to the Botcon stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set Cybertron on fire...

I'll take my shanix elsewhere. I-I'll write a letter to Unicron and have this place dismembered.

I could put Cosmic Rust in the Energon goodies.

See...now this I think most fans can agree, have a laugh, and move on. Looking at looking back at 2015 however...hopefully Hasbro learned not to tease the fans with something they actually would have wanted.

PUNCH

Feared for his power, but certainly not his BRAINpower, PUNCH is STAPLETRON'S loyal enforcer, making sure no DESKEPTICON gets out of line!

STRENGTH: 9
INTELLIGENCE: 2
SPEED: 6

No, not at all, its here, Reflector was in the title:

http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/rundown-of-rumoured-upcoming-transformers-titans-return-toys-broadside-getaway-legends-kickback-and-reflector-and-more/34811/

This was corroborated on other sites (I think it was tfw?) but that it would be a con exclusive and within the CW line.

So yes, Hasbro did not lie to us last year in April Fools. These toys take 2 years to make, they knew it was coming out.

Damn, I hate Con Exclusives, they're always ridiculously expensive and low quantities.
