    Ha! Cool. I won't buy 'em, but that's actually pretty nifty.

    Great stress-relievers. Ever feeling down or tense? Gravity-bots!

    Do want BB and Prime. Those are so cool.

    Huh, those are actually pretty cool. I'll definitely have to get a couple of those, maybe even a double of one or two of them, as I'll have a reason for buying them (I'm going to be an uncle :wink: ).

    Those things look addictive as hell. Now I have to buy them, as if my wallet wasn't in enough pain.

    I had a strong feeling these would be cool and fun. But I had no idea they would work so slick. Bumblebee is particularly impressive.

    Definitely getting one or two. The only thing I don't like is they're bigger than I was expecting. I'd like them a lot better if they were scout sized.

    Leader Class Prime, why so amazing?
    Gravity bots, why so cool?

    OK...wow. I want to say this now, and for it to be heard; GRAVITY BOTS ARE THE FUTURE. :bowdown: 

    No, but seriously, how cool would it be to see this kind of technology -along with the spring-loaded Activator mechanisms - refined in future lines? At the minute they're just chunky, simple fun, but from the smooth, slick way they transform, Gravity Bots 2.0 (or 3.0, probably) could actually end up being the nearest things to the magical self-transforming toys that I think many of us dreamed of when we were kids. Make it happen, Hasbro!

    Even leaving those aside, that was a very good showcase video. I read CollectionDX as a site a lot, but I didn't know they had video content like this...seeing the toys "in motion", so to speak, makes them look a lot better. Leader Prime looked terrific there (with real Peter Cullen speech!), and even the much-maligned Devastator looked pretty imposing. Good find, Vangelus!

    (And hey, I even liked the Hot Wheels ramp thing. Sue me. :p )
