    I was at my local Fred Meyer this afternoon and was looking at watches. I found these transformable ones for ROTF. I did a search of the news forum for watch and watches and didn't find a post with these in them. They remind me of the chronoform transformer watches from when I was in early elementary school. They are $9.99.

    Oh jesus, they're so adorably lame.

    Bumblebee has his movie look, but Optimus looks G1.

    Prime's chest looks like a goofy face with all those arbitrary lines and the shape of his windows. I love the idea of transforming watches, but these look like happy meal garbage. I think they'd be great for young kids, but as an adult, these are an easy pass.

    funny how the watch uses the G1 version of prime and not Bay's interpretation. Well, looks like G1 wins.

    That's odd, Optimus' packaging has Bumblebee on the front.

    And my wallet is mad again. I'll have to pick up these since I missed the kronoforms by a few decades.

    Why did they add the angry face in OP's chest?!?!?! If it looked like the art in the package, it would have been a total win. BB looks better... with his Cheetor face in the chest!
