    Well now that we know what the DOTM line gimmick is, what are your thoughts? Any concerns?

    I like the idea of transforming/combining weapons and it makes me wonder if the 3mm clip system is going to be a part of this.

    The gimmick will be that it takes all your money.

    I HATE it, alot, the one thing the movie toys had going for them was REALISTIC vehicle modes. The stupid random ports on Ironhide have me extremely worried

    Yeah! Megatron, the Fallen, and Soundwave's vehicle modes were SO realistic!

    Love it personally, I'm always bummed when a figure has like no weapons at all so this solves that problem.

    Plus most movie toys look very messed up in vehicle mode from the bottom or because of the transformation panels being fiddly and everywhere so it's not like the pegs bother me.

    Im kinda 50-50 on those leaked pics of BB and Prime so far. :/
    they look simplified and the additional ports for huge-a$$ guns are, IMHO, gimmicky enough for kids only. So we need to see more official shots to determine how cool/un-cool this "Mechtech" feature will play out. I for one will buy Voyager and Leader classes for most characters in those size categories.

    I think he means the little weapon ports that'll be on the vehicles, like the one on Ironhide that everyone claims to ruin the figure when in reality it's not all that bad and is just a product of over-reaction.

    I need to see it in action. The weapon on Bumblebee looked like a tumor, while it could work for figures like Megatron. I'm hoping they can do things like Recon Ironhide's weapons in that they can make huge-ass rifles and cannons that can be shared across multiple figures.

    weapons are awesome.

    combining, transformable weapons shared between figures are even more awesome!

    PCCs all over again :p 

    This


    It's hard to tell this early, especially since we've only gotten decent looks (as in more than 1 pic) of two figures, one who doesn't seem to be negatively affected by it and one who does.
