    These were reported on quite some time ago when they turned up in Dollar General stores.

    Also, not a bootleg. A bootleg is an unlicensed copy of a specific toy. This is a knockoff.

    I thought a knockoff was the same thing as a bootleg? This is just a transforming robot toy, with no connection to TFs.

    Quite a cool one, too. If the lenses were darker, I'd so go for a pair of these... :p 

    It kinda reminds me of a set of stencils I used to have. I can't remember how many there were (between two and four, I think), but you could draw round them to do a robot form, then just pull a piece and it'd transorm to a vehicle mode stencil. They were quitecool, especially the jet one.

    I shall name him 'Lenz'. :) 
    I had some of those. I also think the early UK Marvel TF comic gave some away in a competition once. :)

    I'll have to get one of those to go along with my Rubiks Cube Optimus. My collection always has room for Gadgetformers, Randombots and Accessorcons.

    I had a few of these a few months ago. They were at the Dollar Store. They came in multiple colors. A neat idea but that is all....

    I actually bought a bunch of these for my two nephews from a Dollar General store in my area! They are really fun, but definitely geared towards kids. Either that, or I have an abnormally large head because the definitely didn't fit me! :lol
