    Voice activated? I am intrigued, what could it do?

    Auto-transform perhaps? That would be freakin sweet!

    Hope it's true... has this guy been proven to be reliable in the past, or is this a "HE TELL ME" sorta thing as far as we know?
    But a voice activated transformation would be AWESOME. Unless it went off too easily.
    And if the Prime helmet really DOES make your voice sound that close to Cullen's, I may have to get it after all.

    I do NOT like the sound of voice activation. It always makes the toy extremely simplified, and fi something costs 90 dollars, I want an as complex transformation as possible (I wouldn't mind SOME auto-transforming though, if only to make it a tad bit simpler).

    Sounds like sweet gear.

    Might have to hold off waiting until BB goes on clearance after all...

    So that price isn't due to size but unnecessary electrical bits, oh dear and it was all sounding so promising.

    It could be awesome but right now I can't get past Armada Prime in my mind...

    Voice gimmicks suck and take away from a good toy. Hopefully it's not all about the gimmick. I just hope it looksl ike the movie version. I know there is some kind of cool plastic or metal material that can crunch and return to normal. It was used on some remote control car that you could run into walls. If they used that to make the folded metal look that would be rather neat.

    I personally hope it sucks really, really bad, because at $90, I ain't gonna be buyin' it. Of course, when it goes on clearance I do hope that it miraculously turns great, because at that point I may be willing to get it.

    Interesting, wonder how much hell cost up here in Canada then. Guess it's save to say he's going to be a sweet figure with all the features.

    Too bad it will be the new Camaro and not the old style.

    $130 in Canada.

    Sounds very promising... some die-cast maybe?

    They did the voice activated scheme with the Star Wars R2-D2 and that sold for around $100. The voice recognition wasn't too bad. I'm thinking of a Bumbleebee that's smaller but transforms and moves from voice commands.

    Yeah, I want my $90 Bumblebee to be a Masterpiece level figure, not a robot that waddles around when I clap my hands.
