    BIG missed opportunity here. Mattel does Advent Calendars for most of their major lines, BB's and Micromasters should have both gotten their turns as ACC's or Easter baskets. (And for all the less-than-great about them, Tiny Turbos back in the Bayverse days too.)

    Let's see. Jurassic AC's are usually ten repack figure-packs plus a redhat dinosnack (repack), eight fence sections (ditto) and a JP Gate and bunker (both ditto) for about $35. (Dinos alone normally $40.) A pack of 24 redeco Botbots... well, three 8-packs would normally be $45. We can assume less if they're all redecoes, even less cost if Hasbro gets cheap like the Gumball and Claw packs with stickers and crap. Then again, MM's averaged about $10/2-pack, so an MM or Minicon AC would baseline at $120 unless you deduct a LOT for redecoes or again get cheap by filling some compartments with blast effects, stickers or cheap cardboard "display scenery." You'd need each compartment to average out to about $3 content value a day, so each door with a $5 bot needs a $1 door-of-crap...

    I think about this guy a lot and how cool it would have been to have a little regenerating translucent Energon crystal guy.

    Thanks, guys. I’d make a million of them if I can crank out more ideas.
