That's pretty cool. What does the track look like? What does transforming do? If it's just a simple oval/eight and transforming has no effect, then I think I'll have to pass.

(It would be cool if transforming did something, like cut the opponent's power for a few seconds, or make it easier to knock opponents off the track.)

I'd like to see some more details on this thing. It seems rather expensive for what it does, unless the track is large.

i think its neat that we will finaly have transformers toys that can actually move and arent just static statues ..albeit that the transformation will probly be super ,super complex but still its a start

This thing is going to be extremely bad ass if they release more cars and track add-ons later. My luck they won't though. Bastards. Now I hate them.

If I see this I'll get it, but more for the collectableness of it than to play with it

The track 'could' be discriped as a giure of 8. although one part of the track is a small circle, the other part is a ver odd shape indeed. Also there is a part of the track where the tracks get closer (so they can hit into eachother) and a bit that looks (in my eyes) that it might represent them going around either side of a roundabout.

As far as scalectrix sets go, Im sure it's pretty good. It's not a drilliant transformer toy though. The transformations are barly anymore complex than the cyberslammers, and has to be done by hand.

They already do the track, any micro scalectrix set track will go with this one's (there's a few, including the simpsons), and of course, any microscalectrix car will fit. I do hope they do more tf cars too, who knows, they might.

And finally, this statment is pretty much correct:
