    Bizarre looking, $25? Looks like something I'd leave in the box if I bought it at all.

    Look closer on the package, there's a round shield that unfolds from the back section of the gun.

    I'll probably end up getting this, actually.

    That's ridiculous.

    you'll find there will be a lot of merchandise produced for the movie that does neither.

    its typical movie merchandise stuff. its completely expected.

    Actually I have several things that doesn't transform or isn't a robot that are DEFINITELY worthy of the TF name. :)  This, however looks like they just slapped an Autobot badge on a watergun. I'll buy it, but not anytime soon.

    Erm...where's the handle to hold it? It doesn't even look like a gun.

    Holy cow, this is :horse:  but they've been making wierd Super Soakers and Nerf guns for years. You dont HAVE to buy it. That "held at gunpoint" disposition is probably one of the top 5 negative attitudes that give Transformers fans a bad name all over the internet.

    Also, kids toys and cartoons (Transformers): a classic money whoring scheme of EPIC proportions.

    Hollywood: same thing.

    Combine the two and you should expect Transformers to be on everything :) 


    I know thats preachy and redundant lately but sometimes the high horse snobbery towards things that aren't even aimed at us makes me think that you guys forgot what it was like to have fun and play.

    I get what you're saying but I dunno, I think this thing is kind of ugly and I don't think I'd enjoy it too much even if I was still a kid. I know this isn't aimed at us, (hell none of it really is). Still, some of the stuff aimed at the kiddies can be pretty cool, this however isn't one of them.

    Interesting that they're starting to put Movie stuff on their site already. I guess it won't be long until other Movie products start showing up there.

    This is awesome. Spring-loaded transforming shield = RADICAL.

    So, where's the handle? It looks like a backpack that squirts water more than a blaster or gun.
