    That has got to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen. I really should make my Blockables Spike.

    looks like crap.
    they are called "impossible toys" because it would be impossible for me to ever want any of them.

    I kinda like Exo-Suit Spike. Hope it's a prototype and more paint apps to follow.

    I think they need to rework a lot.

    The face, arms, and legs.

    Make them more... porportionate

    I do like the idea of a toy based on the Witwicky's exo-suits, but that doesn't look all that great.

    I really dont see a problem with how it transforms? it looks like the arms push in and the feet flip and legs fold like a headmaster? very G1ish. I read on there forum that it was designed to look like if it was part of the 80's line. People really need to stop being haters as I think people just say things without thinking? What other transformation would really work?

    I don't think it looks that bad. I may even be inclined to purchase one if the price was right.

    It doesn't transform the same way it did in the movie.
    Although I think the transformation in the movie was simpler.

    The G1 series toys did not always look or transform exactly like they did in the show as we all know, and most of the transformations if applied to real life there was no way they would work? I found this clip on youtube of Daniel transforming and it in fact looks like the legs fold up and arms push in but the look from robot to car thingy does not seem practical?
