    Remember the movie "BIG"? Remember a scene where some corperate guy attempts to pawn the idea off that a Giant Transformer that turned into a Building would be cool, but Tom didnt like it? Well I , for one, thought that toy looked AWESOME. Slap some Reprolabels on it , and my friends, you have a VERY neat Autobot, and the start of a REAL TF's city.

    So anyhow, I was thinking. What happened to that toy? Obviously it was a prototype, but who has it now? Cause I want it.

    I think that would be more of a Go Bot than a Transformer.

    No way. Thats not what it was called in "BIG"....

    Besides, anything can be a T F so long as it can Transform and have Reprolabels. :)

    It's either lining a landfill some where or collecting dust in some studio prop room.

    I thought this was going to be something about him singing the theme song again. I'm glad it wasn't...

    Ebay:
    Movie prop. that is probably been destroyed and filed away in some store in Hollywood.

    Besides, I doubt a company would allow a prototype to be used in a film.

    ...read the first post of the thread in the Transformers Toy discussion area entitled : "The 5 Greatest Alt. modes that never were produced". Then look at #5. You will then hear my retort against that claim.

    Love your sig by the way man. :)

    This was actually discussed awhile ago. I've heard three things. One it's on a studio shelf, two it was tossed, and three Hanks took it. I do know it was made specifically for the movie, not a prototype per se but just a prop made by the movie prop dudes. I would like to think that Hanks took it. He is a fan and it makes for a great ending to a neat toy.

    Yeah just PM Tom Hanks and see what he'll take for it or if he's looking for any trades.

    Edit: PM under the screen name : Zoltar_Speaks :D

    All fun aside. Remember this was the result of a discussion. I personally cannot confirm any of this. For all we know it is sitting in a landfill. I am just stating what was discussed before. Goodluck, oh and if you do get in touch with him ask him why he was not in the Movie!!! LOL
