    I just came from the Toys R Us in Dale City, VA and there were some ROTF Gravity Bots for $11.99. Wish I had photos.

    I think they're cool and all, but I'll be hard pressed to spend $12+tax on those things. I could get a deluxe for that.

    I'm going to buy Bumblebee, and mabye a few others. They seem to be great stress relievers.

    I'd say this should be posted in N&R, but you'll probably just get the standard "pics or it didn't happen" crap.

    Not suprised by the price, they might be the "mighty muggs" for ROTF in a sense. I really wasn't into them that much, and I'd rather get a Deluxe like Breakaway or Wheelie instead.

    ooooh, how dare you. At least these transform. Mighty Fuggs are just plastic crap that don't do anything.

    That's pretty expensive. I only plan on getting maybe one or two, though. Prime, Sideswipe, or Starscream, namely.

    So do they have any articulation, or are they just auto-transforming bricks ?

    :( 

    I'll probably still get Optimus, but that's really disappointing considering what HasTakomy have acomplished in the past few years.

    I won't get these transforming bricks but it was a nice sign to see them.

    The simplicity of them is the point. They're basically a way of amusing toddlers with the cool effect of automatically transforming, just a new version of electronic lights & sounds. Very innovative in my opinion!

    If you need more then buy FABs.

    If you are replying to my previous post:

    I really like this concept, and I fully expect that when i get one I'll absolutely love it.

    But I'd love it a bit more if they could raise their arms.

    Even if only at the shoulder. It's not like I'm asking that they be fully articulated or anything...

    Hell, it'd be sweet if they made a Leader or Supreme class that automatically transformed! :p 

    I have a feeling that the second a kid moved a part that would block the automatic feature, you'd have one unhappy, frustrated kid though...
