    Would you guys buy them?

    Imagine the kind of care and detail that went into the Joker applied to Optimus Prime or Megatron?

    They can do robots well too, just check out there T-700.

    Add in all the accessories and authenticity that normally come with a Hot Toys figure and you could have a lot of happy TF fans..

    Though I don't think Hasbro would be very open to the idea...

    Every figure would be a masterpiece figure.

    I dunno, I like having a cheap toy option for enjoying between expensive purchases.

    The question is, would they still transform? Or just be incredibly detailed Robot Replicas?
    I might be down for one or two, but I couldn't afford to collect them if it were anything beyond that.
    Hasbro might go for it; Hot Toys would have to pay for the license, just like anybody else that makes RotF merchandise. Plus, the Hasbro figures technically are sold as children's toys (with details thrown in to make the adult collectors who will invariably buy them happy) and Hot Toys figures would be more along the lines of high-end collectibles.

    If they COULD make an incredibly detailed Prime that can transform and is at least as articulated as the current leader one, I would pay a hefty price for it for sure. The problem is, I don't know if they could do that with a whole line, since I know I wouldn't pay large amounts of money for most of the other characters. Just because a toy is movie accurate doesn't necessarily mean it's a good design.

    If they did non-transforming ones, I'd probably go for Ratchet and Ironhide.

    If they did transforming ones, I'd need 3 other jobs.

    I do have that DX Joker on pre-order, though. Can't wait!

    No thanks. That's what the Masterpiece line is for. And on top of that, it's actually affordable.

    Plus for my money I don't think anyone other then Hasbro/TakaraTomy can 'do' a Transformer properly. But that's just my heavily biased opinion.

    It'd be really cool, but like many others I'd be broke or at least severely bleeding cash. With detail like that though, I wouldn't care if they transformed. Since the Robot Replicas from each film are okay but still not perfect, I wouldn't mind a definitive line of ultra-detailed, posable robot molds of each character.

    Just release only one or two a year to give me a chance to afford them as they come out.

    Transformers that don't transform are like buying a hooker with her crotch and mouth sewn shut.

    Yeah you could do it, but why? Why would you want to?

    I admit I like Robot Replicas Starscream, alot even. But I just can't pay money for a TF that just sits there. It's all about that plastic origami for me. No plastic origami? It's not a transformer to me.

    Though I admit that Joker is really nice. But I'm guessing that's it right? He just kinda,......stands there?

    Maybe I'm more liberal in what I choose to buy, but if it has posability and/or instills a sense of nostalgia (Revoltechs, 3-inch Titaniums) than I could care less if it transforms or not.

    Plus, maybe I'm just getting old and bitter, but I'm not thrilled of the movie transformations, so most of those pieces of plastic origami just stand there in robot mode anyways. That's just me though!

    I just came at that thought of Hot Toy movie bots.
    Um yeah. I'd be so over Prime and the bots and cons.

    i'm skeptical..it'd be awesome if HT were really doing it. I'm not gonna get overly excited until I see more real evidence that this is happening. :rolleyes:

    I would simply purchase 1 movie-verse Optimus Prime from them, and display him upon a golden pedestal, surrounded by a moat with sharks, and flanked by dragons.

    Now that would be awesome. Mine will have to slum it on a shelf.

    If they make a Jetfire and you get it, you should display him on a mountain of meds, with a fleet of wheelchair-bound senior citizens armed with double-barrelled shotguns rambling to no one in particular.

    I don't think it'd work, due the lack of experience in engineering toys that transform. Although if they did robot replica-style toys, it'd make for some great figures.

    I doubt very much that any Hot Toys TF's would transform, their Iron Man doens't have a removable suit of armour now does he. ;)
