    Hey check it out all. I couldnt stant waiting anymore for the next update so I took it upon myself to search it out. Open your sparks and preorder this must have collector's item for any true TF fan.

    http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC64003

    Know that I am in no way affiliated with this site I'm just so excited that I finaly found a site to pre-order it and had to share my discovery. I am however somewhat disappointed to see that it now may not be availible until sometime in Sebtember but it may be well worth the wait just knowing that it will be arriving at the doorstep shortly after release.

    $159 is the going price for this item. If anyone can find it cheaper, that would be great.

    Correct beyond a shadow of a doubt. I'm so tired of hearing people unassociated with Transformers telling me that the 1985 animated movie ripped off the Wachowski film. My girlfriend STILL thinks that way.

    F***ING PRODUCTION TIMELINE, YOU IDIOTS! WHICH FILM GOT PRODUCED WHEN!?

    Man I'de love to have that. The Wachowski duo was being sued from someone who claims they stole her story. Maybe they didn't create it after all.

    Eh, I just think the name worked well, so they used it. I've never really had a beef with the fact that the proper noun "The Matrix" is used for two revered things in sci-fi culture, I just think it's retarded when people that don't know much about either (or both) films make shallow judgments that one stole from the other (or vice versa.)

    "The Matrix" as a computer network built by machines makes contextual sense. So does "The Matrix" as a leadership device for the Transformers. It has a catchy, not-of-this-world sound as a word.

    You mean used for 3 revered things, in the movie "Commando" Ahnald's character was called "Matrix". And according to IMDB, Commando came out in 85, so TF:TM and the Wachowski's ripped that off. Personally I would have loved to see Prime open his chest and have the real Matrix, Arnold Schwarzenegger, pop out and break Hot Rod's neck.

    I know that the production of an autobot matrix replica is old news since about january but they never verified a release date or anything about where one might preorder one. idk about the rest of you but ive been dreaming of this item since 1986 and used to make my own various versions out of cardboard and other materials

    Even Doctor Who has a matrix. Theirs is even one that holds wisdom from their leaders amongst other uses.

    I have a Matrix.

    It's Toyota-brand. And in the driveway.

    On a side note, why in the WORLD did they pick the Scion xB for Alt Skids rather than the Matrix? The Matrix is SUCH a better looking car... and I remember when my family got the car, my first thoughts were, "Damn, if they ever made an Alt Skids (snickersnickeryeahright), this would be perfect." Shows what I know, I guess. :p

    Meh, neither one really ripped of the other, though, in either case. Matrix is a term that can be used to describe several things, and was used differently in each, heh.
