    How does this tie into Hong Kong?

    It looks like the US version and the add is completely in english.

    I believe TRU Hong Kong uses the US commercials in their stores.

    I don't really see this figure as having four modes. Two modes and a battle-setup for each one sure, but guns popping out of the hood doesn't count as another mode. If it did, than Tracks (flying car) and the Omnibots (James Bond's wet dream) would be triple-changers.

    We add these toy commercials and videos because, though US Citizens get the chance to watch them, others around the world don't. :)

    It cannot be denied that this is a great toy. I just wish Bumblebee didn't have a giant pointy crotch.

    This Ad sold me to the toy. But I already have my 'perfect' Bee. Battle Blades. Plus I think this toy is a bit big for me.

    I'll happy enough with my Costco Version. The normal ones look too plain.

    Did you actually FIND the Costco one, or are you just planning on getting that gold one when it surfaces there?

    That was a pretty good commercial. The CGI Bumblebee looks really good, the toy is shown off very well and genuinely makes me want to get it now, even though it's pricey so I won't unless it's a gift or something. The 4-in-1 is a stretch. I know TFs have always had "battle modes" with flip out weapons and face masks, but they've never been considered another form. Especially when the car battle mdoe is just the car mode with cannons. but hey, whatever sells.

    That first voice clip made him sound like Ahnold Shwartz'n'jager. That makes me want it more.

    My bad, I meant I was planning on getting that one. I posted that when I had just woken up from dozing off at my computer. I just edited my post :thumbs2:

    Have to agree with you. If only the CGI of Transformers: Cyber Missions looked that good. I'm surprised to see this much level of CGI just for a brief 5 seconds. Hmmm...

    I added some screenshots for you all to enjoy the CGI. Look, even the Mouthplate transforms when he's putting on the Battlemask.
