If someone re-made Kronoforms (Transformer watches), would you buy them?

    I think I'd rather Hasbro or Takara just reissue the old ones...and yes, I'd buy those.

    We almost had some new ones some years back. They were going to be too expensive and they got scrapped. They show up in one of the Generations 2009 books.

    Sweet. I meant to make this thing a poll, but apparently I can't edit that back in. Oh well. Sucks the video is just a link too.

    Yeah, well, those are just too fancy. Reissues of the originals are where it's at and should cost no more than $20 each. We got some DotM Optimus transforming watches, so these are clearly doable.

    Seems like easy money for some of these 3rd party companies. Although I bet they wouldn't charge less than $50.

    And that's when I wouldn't buy any. I'd rather Hasbro and TT just did it themselves.

    Oh yes I would love for these to all be re-released.
    I love my Scorpion watch, but it is fragile nowadays, and the watch mechanism has failed. I would buy more in a heartbeat.

    I'd pay up to $100 for an awesome transforming watch.

    Kronoform watches were awesome! I only had one but if they reissued them I'd buy one of each for sure. I'd pay extra for nice special edition ones with steel cases instead of plastic.

    I'd also buy a Kronoform Smartwatch if they made one.


    :eek:  It's been so damn long since I've even seen what my old Kronoform Scorpion looked like on his wristband that I'm having Xmas flashbacks looking at this pic! Mine still works, I think, but the post that connects it to the band is long gone along with the band.

    Oh hell yeah
    In total I have about 60 kronoforms. They're the only type of tf I've been consistently buying since I've been collecting.

    There was almost a re-boot on the high-end tip, but it never materialized.

    I had/have the blue robot. Cool when I was a kid but watches are obsolete these days. A transforming tablet/phone? Maybe.
