    Hang on, do they mean crowd funding? ...or do I just not know what "cloud funding" means?

    Anyway, I want that Megs!

    Are these meant to actually work as phones or am I crazy?

    no they are supposed to be blu-tooth devices, receivers or something I don't no
    Also is it just me or have they already reached double the set goal?
    there was a 212% the green bar so I can only assume that that's what it means.

    Nope. No desire to own any of these. This is like Device Label on meth. If people like \'em, that\'s great, but I can\'t even get next to those.  No.

    It's 2017, Transformers. You're not fooling anyone disguised as flip phones.

    Horrible.

    Because it is using proper logos does this mean it is an official product like some garage kits?

    That Bumblebee head doesn't look very Bumblebee. In spite of that, or maybe because of that, not sure really but that's the one that appeals the most to me.

    As far as I know Japan still prefers flip phones to smart phones.

    If it's official, why would they need crowd funding?

    Yeah, totally not caring. At least the Soundwave tablet was likable (and official). These just look like Real Gear rip-offs.

    I also don't really see this as news unless Takara is behind it.

    Exactly! I don't like how the original purpose of crowd funding being distorted and now is also used for well established companies while they're small companies at their begining and individual people who could actually need crowd funding.

    Nice idea, indeed. Now if the phone companies would make the Bluetooth still be online so that it can be still in sync with this transformers device even when the phone is off and 1000's of yards away or even better, have a special connection with this transformers device and your phone through the Bluetooth then be able to also incorporate the phone forwarding features all without use of the Internet in the syncing.

    First a shoe, then a hat, then a PS1, now he\'s a phone that reminds me of the Shodophone.
