This is a toy that's 40 years in the making. Growing up I always wondered how the Autobots would or could help the GI Joes against Cobra and then I would wonder if the Decepticons with Cobra could be the ultimate threat to the world. Sure there were playground rumors and as an adult, there were shrugs and the occasional I don't know from those in power, but we never got the ultimate crossover. Sure, there have been a few winks, nods, and SDCC sets over the years but finally here is the first, official, toy-based, non-convention exclusive, GI Joe/Transformers crossover. It makes sense for Megatron to be a HISS tank, as that's a form that can contain the sheer power of Megatron. Transformation really isn't that difficult and the resulting HISS tank really, really looks good, without the fusion cannon I would say it looks exactly like the classic Cobra machine. The Baroness is an excellent addition, and while I could think of a few other selections, it makes sense for her to be included with Megs. The price might be a little off-putting but there is a chance Megs might end up on sale at some point, but for me, the price was totally worth it.

Cute, but no. I can't do hollow-formers this extremely hollow anymore.
I mean, even his fusion cannon is severed in two!
Good Megatron head, good Baroness figure, good HISS tank. But that's all.

I'm hoping Bee ends up on one of those keep sale prices on amazon or something next year, I might get it then, but otherwise no regret that I was passing, especially coming this early

Maybe more Navy blue than bright? And a single Gold Hand

Maybe G2 Beachcomber had a different personality? G2 Sideswipe was a detective, wasn't he?

I thought it was expensive at 120$CAN but this...
Is it because TrU now have it and Amazon is simply following their insane pricing?
For our American friends, that's around 118$US.

Yeah Bee got pushed up.

Yes, it's just Amazon's pricing algorithm at work.

BB is okay. That grille on the back is just in the way at all times in robot mode. I think they could have made some of it on hinges to try and mitigate the backpack. But that's not what they did. No regrets, though. I'm glad I got him. But they shouldn't let the Joe team design TFs.

That Bee is at my local geek store and 100$CAN is way, WAY too expensive for that Kibble X-Mass tree.

For those unaware of what that alt mode is, it looks like the image below.
