    I hope seeing that the stickers don't come attached helps with some of the people complaining about stickers.

    Interesting - they seem to be packing/marketing these not as toys, but as model kits.

    Curious how this new direction will work out.

    It's especially painful to see how ALL of Ratchet's red is stickers.

    yeah ratchet i think is prob the worse for stickers as if u dont apply them really he just about pretty much white.

    the packaging does remind me of how they did superlink and some of the micron legends.

    Sad.

    Oh, how the mighty Takara has fallen. From about 30% more paint apps than Hasbro to almost no paint at all.

    i had to stop myself from ordering ratchet

    i want that mold badly, and i want that minicon, but man, the stickers, can't bring myself to pay about $30-40 for him when i can get the hasbro one for like $20 on ebay (he's impossible to find in this area)

    Just MP-11 alone is over $50 for EMS to Canada. Airmail for the whole lot was $58.

    Yup. The news of that has been around awhile. I feel indifferent about it all. Just as long as it's not paint-it-yourself or having to shave any parts, I'm all good.

    And I guess my assumptions about the deluxe packaging was right. That packaging REALLY leaves a lot to be desired. And the insert inside doesn't help.....at this point, Hasbro has the collector packaging and Takara has Revell model kit boxes.

    is there a reason why Takara went stickers other than cheapness? Man that's so 1980's.

    I guess takara feels piecing the toys together from sprues and putting stickers on adds play value (and saves money)

    Dear god, these are horrible in every way they can be horrible,

    Bumblebee's car mode is completely naked, and ratchet's unstickered robot mode shown on the back of his box... what a disaster.
