    Ebay auction. Don't think I've seen this. Don't think it's in my interest range...

    Legs? Prime needs no legs!!! *adopts fetal position*
    I guess this is some of the ill conceived merchandise we should expect from every super-action movies? I can’t wait for the pencil cases.

    Heh. That's cute.
    Just the ones based on children's toylines.
    Like the ones we had in the 80s for G1, you mean? Along with pillow cases, bedsheets, underwear, socks, colouring books, and God knows what else? Hell, I have 2 Generation 2 colouring books, and a sealed G1 drawing set.
    This is hardly a new phenomenon. Personally I think it's a great idea; get little kids playing with Transformers? How is that ever bad? After all, TFs are toys.

    You mistake my intentions, I don't believe getting children to play with toys is a bad thing (just more lines of transformers for me to play with), nor do I believe that ill conceived merchandise is a bad thing (hell the more money Hasbro gets the better). I was simply commenting that there will be a variable flood of it and that it's coming...
    I'd just like to say that I’m not a cantankerous g1 loving movie hating fan who decided to make an account just so I could tell people who really don't care how much I hate the aforementioned movie. But from some of the arguments you made it seems you jumped to that conclusion and I can't fault you for that (even to my fresh eyes they're all to common).

    Ahh. I apologise, I did indeed misunderstand your post.
    BTW, Nice Saint Gale pic. Do you have one? *collects the Web Exclusive Zoids myself*

    You don't need to apologize I wasn't clear in my first post and it was presumptuous of me to believe anyone could know I wasn't just being your average movie n00b.
    Oh yes I do indeed *pats ol' Sainty*. Transformers and Zoids, yep that's how i roll how I roll.
    *Makes a vain attempt to make the post slightly on topic* The paint job is nice all things considered.

    I encourage anything that introduces TRANSFORMERS to the younger toy buyer. The times I've been in the toy section of Woolworths and seen kids looking at TF's but then put them back because they're "too complicted" (direct quote!!)... I'm all for these 'junior Transformers'.
    Will I buy 'em? No way, but I'm 36 - If I was 7 this would be a hoot.

    Sweet; that's a Web Exclusive I still have to get (I got most of the rarer the ones like Sturm Tyrann, but a few still elude me, mainly through money concerns).
    I like it. I'm pretty certain my youngest nephew will too; he plays kind of rough, so a Prime toy he can beat the crap out of? Hell yes.

    If Elvin were still collecting, this year would be ruinous for him. Still, it's nice that they're making the effort to reach to every possible audience out there, though I'm still a little freaked out by the children's books.

    BTW, if someone can repaint it . . . MOVIE MOTORMASTER!!!
