    My favorite part of this is that they're wearing themselves. Its rather ingenious.

    Hey, that's the same type of shoebox I use to store all of my extra toy bits.

    And I'm glad that somebody had the common sense to take this novel idea all the way.

    I remember reading something Phazer posted awhile back about these guys being a bad idea executed well. That's pretty spot on.

    Mixed emotions on these...

    They look pretty cool...(except for their robot mode backs...which look rather flat but that's understandable)...and the shoe box they each come in is a really cool idea too...

    Hmm...but TF shoes...I dunno...

    Kibbletastic....I don't like these at all. Especially Megs head as it's just plain ugly.

    I'm not interested in picking them up so this is idle commentary, but I'm a little disappointed that they only made a left shoe mold. It might have been nice to have characters in pairs like Prime and Ultra Magnus and Megatron and Galvatron.

    Lol. I love these guys. The shoe-box packaging is certainly going the extra mile. :) 

    My only complaint is that they are both left shoes. Still awesome anyway, and forgivable since they are remolds of each other.

    Cool if you could actually wear them...


    ...but utterly pointless as you can't.

    eh, they are way to kibbly with their shoulder towers and stuff. Look neat though, just seems like they would be a waste of my money, yet even stranger is that they are actually SOLD OUT on BBTS! LOL. Go figure.

    I like the idea but two major strikes against them:

    1) they seem REALLY cheaply made

    2) in terms of actual transformation, they suck. The whole outer shoe part just becomes 'wings' and the whole robot body just hides inside the shoe. It is that 'shell' problem of transformers that don't really' transform' (REVs I'm looking your way)

    They sure look like crap from the rear.

    The packaging is pretty cool, though.
