    Would be awesome if he came included with his Big Bad Explosive Murder-Death Overkill Big Boom Gun of Ultra Violent Life Taking Awesomeness.

    Or with a voicebox that muttered "chihuahua" and "fuuuuck you".

    I'm surprised by this. I mean, these statues are clearly adult collectibles... can't see a parent buying this for their kid. And I'm going to go out on a limb and say most adult TF fans weren't a fan of this guy... so yeah --good luck to them and all, but who is this for?

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I just can't find the rational behind this.

    What a waste.

    Man, they tried so hard for this to be a BB8/R2-D2/chopper ripoff, but it just goes to show you how little thought they put into the actual characters.

    It's a shame this thing has also taken up a spot on ThreeA's TLK lineup. I would LOVE a ThreeA megatron.

    I remember Prime 1 also announced the Onslaught statue...They thought Onslaught and Swqeeks would play big roles in the movie,but we all know how it ended up.
    Feel sorry for them o_O 
    TLK hurt everyone's feeling.

    I'd be more likely to buy a half-scale statue of G1 Squeaks...

    While I like a number of Bayverse designs, their idea of "cute" is anything but.

    I'm pretty sure the fandom universally rejected this thing. People would probably sooner find Sharkticons cute than they would this little junker.

    ROTF Wheelie is cute compared to him.

    Yikes, 1500 for a statue of a character that had maybe 2 minutes of total screen time in a movie that's two and half hours long AND didn't really speak or do anything all that interesting while he had his screen time. It would be like a premium statue of the Collectors assistant from Guardians of the galaxy.

    No one is buying that thing.

    It could become the rarest Transformers branded item in history.

    Or a Trench statue. Well, actually, If I was extremely rich, I'd buy one of those.

    Sqweeks falls into the same category as the baby-dinobots.

    Seeing them on screen was like nails on chalkboard.

    Btw...I'm ordering the regular one. :oops: 
    Yes, I know. I'm part of the problem.
