    That must've taken FOREVER to glue all those little "Bejewled" things on there.

    And he didn't even do the top of the D.I.A. Commander trailer...

    Cheap ass.

    Yeah, but what he said was that they didn't bother doing the top of the trailer. Which they didn't.

    So... they took a toy that generally goes for $100, a 3rd party accessory that goes for $150-$200, and glues BEADS to it, which likely can't be removed without paint damage to the toy. The beads are uneven and kinda gappy, and undoubtably prevent the toy from actually transforming.

    So, it's a joke, and a crappily done one too.

    What makes me sad is I know people who would actually like to have this figure, who can't get one for a reasonable price.

    So? Don't like it, don't buy it. It's something someone else did. You'll probably never meet the guy. It doesn't affect you even a little bit. I'd hate to have to check with TFW to see if they liked my idea before I started a custom. Out of curiosity do you check every house in your neighborhood to see if anyone wants eggs before you waste your eggs making a cake?

    I love the "I don't like it so I don't want it to exist" attitude.

    If it helps, according to the description it IS all KO stock. If it were genuine, I'd likely equate this to people buying these things and then torching them for fun, or just to make people mad. I mean, yeah, they own it and it's theirs to do with as they want. But you still grimace at it.

    But being KO's, eh. Good luck on the sale I guess?

    this is only slightly goofier than the decepticon's plots from the G1 cartoon.
