Pre-ordered! Hope this sets a precedent for a Marty Mcbot and a Meister Chief down the line :D

This is just super dorky, and unlike Transformers and GI Joe crossovers this really cool. I'm not super into ghost busters, but I may purchase him. They made this work really well.

Well that's a very random crossover. Can't say I like that robot mode too much but it's cute it has the gun and tube and such.

The Ecto-1 looks great though. Just not into the bot.

I'm not going mad- that's definitely Hot Spot under there, right?

I see what everyone is seeing to make one think it could be. Shapes, and transformation. But, I don't think it is.

Maybe more of a case of "shared engineering"? It's hard to say.

Now that was truly unexpected.
I'd like it, but not if it's some sort of US exclusive that must be imported at high cost.

this is actually pretty cool - not a super robot mode (and seems to use the CW engineering patterns). The alt mode though looks the part and I appreciate the robot mode is an original character. Didn't care for the other transformers where for example a TIE fighter would transform into Vader... rather than an original character or a TF character like Megatron.

Wow, I cannot escape buying this mould 4 times can I? :lol:
If it isn't an extreme retool, it definitely shares engineering.

Oookay this came out of nowhere. I like the concept tho, and seeing that this gonna be a line, not just one-off, i am kinda worried, because while i can resist this just fine, i'm pretty sure there will be some down the line that will mess up my budget plan.

Anyone else think that this guy has hurtful shoulders and an addiction to Jaam? Because I am totally getting the Hot Shot vibe from this. Car mode looks great, robot mode... not so great. Dunno, but it seems like a knockoff.

Also, the "Transformers Collaborative" signature means we can expect more crossovers?

I'd love a Back To The Future Transformer if that's true

The BTTF Delorean

The BTTF Delorean and KITT are PRIORITIES. The rest would be nice to have. Would Christine make for a nice Shatter? :-?

I guess a Doctor Who TARDIS would maybe satisfy those nerds fans :lol:

Plenty of possibilities, but sadly, little chance of a Gundam crossover :-(

There are worse molds. Like... Most of them. Most of the moulds are worse. I have this mould six-times.

Kind of, but at this point does it really matter?

Cool mash up. Kind of like the mash up I did. Which I’m surprised that it hasn’t been done since Hasbro now own Power Rangers.
