    Are you surprised? :p 

    So, when is the TF show going to start again? In how many hours?

    Wow... first the Marvel MegaMorphs, now this...

    It's a goofy, but sort of promising idea... too bad the actual designs are pretty weak. The designs are not far removed from the Playskool GoBots aethetic, and the big seat for Batman in the middle takes away from the whole look of the thing.

    Imagine if they had rigged it with a closed chest compartment, but so Batman's head would fit inside the robot head, maybe barely visible behind a tinted blast shield or something. THAT would have been sweet.

    Of course, I suppose I should at least be thankful that they aren't designed to look like literal robot versions of Batman, like the SWTFs and MegaMorphs.

    To be fair, the Batwing version seems to have a closeable cockpit in botmode. But the problems are still placed way to short.

    A completely separate license making their own Transformers? Bah! It will totally suck...

    *goes and plays with Anakin Jedi Starfighter transformer*

    Seriously the only ones who can EVER pull it off these days are Hasbro.

    It's a shame that they didn't use one of the longass sleek batmobiles. Wake me up when they do one of those.

    Don't care for any of those, though that's more 'cause they seem to be going for a Powered suit/mecha kinda look, which rarely appeals to me.

    These look worse than Megamorphs. I'll check 'em out in stores, and might pick 'em up for $5 or less. Nothing that I'm passing on real TFs for, though.

    I'll count them as a Mecha Batman since they have a pilot. But yeah, great now they're making transforming Batman stuff and bad ones at that.

    We already have transforming batmobiles, they're called Cybertron Megatron and Cybertron Galvatron.
