    I asked about it on YouTube about it a while ago.



    Katana sounds like it'll be cool. And he posted this last year (2009), just to clear up any possible confusion with the "Christmas" part. They also posted a vid of the toy's inner structure.

    Dear Robobuz Customer,

    finally, we can give you some great updates to your Robobuz toy pre-order.

    First, we want to apologize for the delay in our production. We had to change our production partner, but we also took the chance to make some major improvements to the whole toy design.

    Here are the news:

    * SIZE: Now, we can confirm that the Robobuz toy will come in 1:64 scale instead of 1:87. That means the bus mode is 28,8 cm (11.3 inches) long and the robot mode stands 21 cm (8.3 inches) tall. Also, 1:64 is exactly in scale to common Matchbox / Hot Wheels cars (and it is very close to the scale of the Bonecrusher Movie Deluxe Toy, in case you want a transforming bus to take revenge).
    * SWORD: The toy will include a mecha style katana sword.
    * PRICE: Though the toy becomes much larger, the price will go down to 24,95 Euro (plus shipping). Of course, this will also be the new price for your pre-order.
    * NAME: As this is planned to be only the first character in a series of transforming busses (and other vehicles), "Project Robobuz" is merely - let's say - the first chapter of the story that gave birth to it all. Each character will - of course - have his or her individual name. The guy you have pre-ordered is named "Bendway".
    * RELEASE: We plan to ship the first figures by the beginning of September 2010.

    Still, the toy will have rubber tires and moving knee / bus center joints.

    Thanks for your interest in this production.
    We will keep you updated!

    Best regards,
    Thomas

    It's been so long since the preorder that when I read this message in my email this morning my first thought was, "What the hell is a robobuz?" :lol 

    Very exciting news indeed. I'm fine with them taking as long as they need to if it means a top-notch product. Also I'm thrilled to hear that they plan more busses and other vehicles.

    Wow, this looks kinda cool. I haven't gone for too many non-Hasbro product, but if this is meant to be the bus Bonecrusher destroyed...I think it's a strong "maybe".

    Anybody know the latest info on this German Robobuz transformer preorder? Last update said it was to ship out in Sept. of 2010. BBTS still show it as a preorder, and shows Jan. shipping date. Why was it pushed back?

    I'm sticking with my preorder more out of curiosity at this point rather than any real desire for the toy!

    Same here. It looks interesting, but it is weird that we really haven't heard a thing about him for almost a year... Oh well, I think he looks good!

    The most recent comment on the YouTube video (linked above) now puts the date at March. I'll believe it when I see it in my Pile of Loot.

    Pushed back again? Man oh man.

    Is it weird that we haven't seen anything more of this toy at all?
