    Beatmix could be a MP3 hook up. Like that I dog thingy.

    Pass...

    I guess that BeatMix BB has to do something with a certain part of the script. (I will not post any spoilers on this one)

    I used to think that, now I'm all about the statues and oddities. They rock!!! I'm stuck in the HOC's and Myclone universe!

    Not even because Action Masters had transforming vehicles or accessories.

    I hope that Bumblebee has some kind of catch, like lots of electronics, because that doesn't look like what I'd want from a non-Transforming movie BB.

    It doesn't look anything like the actual prop or the renderings we've seen... its really fat and is missing all the details.

    I absolutely want a non-transforming action figure of at least Bumblebee, that would be killer, but the whole point would be to actually make him look like he does in the movie. Which isn't that hard imo... I mean, I've seen Spawn figures with just as much mechanical detail.

    Non-transforming transformers=Will not buy. :( 
    Toys that're called 'Transformers' should, you know, transform. Even the Plush toys transform.

    Maaaan, there is going to be such a huge influx of TF merchandise in the next year and most of it will wind up in discount bins. Overkill. They did it with Jurassic Park and now TFs. Uhg.

    Seems to be a foregone conclusion with any movie tie-in toyline. The companies keep doing it, so I guess it works out for them. Having too many toys from which to choose is not a problem I mind having. :)

    - The statue (if that's really what it is) looks bad. If it doesn't transform, it should look just like the bot in the movie.

    - The Beatmix thingy is weird.... wonder if it transforms? If it does, and plays MP3s and isn't ultra-super expensive, I may get it.

    - And last but not least .... Real Gear Packaging! Gadget-bots are movie transformers! Hopefully this will end once and for all the posts suggesting the gadget-bots were from Transformers: Heroes.

    Sweet. The four gadget TFs have their own "sub-line". Real-gear. AWESOME.

    I agree with the previous suspicion that it's a 3" Titanium. Seems to fit in with that sculpt style.

    In general I agree, but sometimes a non-Tfing TF can better capture the essence of a character (eg HH Beast Wars Rhinox). But that has been done to my specs a lot so I don't have many non TFign things. In this particular case, I don't really feel them.
