    Hahaha. Can't believe there's another KLF fan here.
    I completely support that crossover. As long as I only have to burn 65 euros for it and not a million.

    If it's space jam, what, the back in action spy car turns into a basketball player bot?

    Cause otherwise, it should be a looney tunes subline.

    Back in Action won't make sense for a Space Jam transformer, they could use the Spaceship from Space Jam which would make more sense.

    I forgot there was a spaceship. Ok, that might work for the original, but the modern one is all virtual, so, would that still work?

    Good on you. It's a great album. Those guys had some amazing tunes.
    It's funny. I loved the stadium house trilogy as a kid, but I never knew about all their other stuff until two decades later.
    I always knew there was some crazy mash-up between the Dr. Who theme and that Gary Glitter song and nobody believed me as I talked about it years later. Until I discovered it on the internet and realized it was a KLF tune. Mind blown.

    Just thought its the 25th anniversary of the original Space Jam and the do love doing these collabs on anniversaries so sounds more plausable now.

    Maybe could end up as a transforming Air Jordan shoe a bit like that shoe Prime that came out a few years back.....im hoping its a vehicle of some sort but its not totally out of the question.

    Wouldnt mind a modulator style thing that becomes a basket ball court either.

    It could be the Spaceship from the movie.


    P.S. If it's a shoe, wouldn't that make it a Leader Class BotBot?

    Thats a good point megashoe! But then this was quite expensive when it came out so who knows.

    Also Jam is a Michael Jackson song and he turned into a car in Moonwalker which is similar to Sunstreaker but as you say at leader price its a tall ask and im really clutching at that one haha.

    Space Jam is more likely.

    What if it's a retool of Arcee that turns into one of MJ's shoes from the movie, with a robot mode based on Lola?

    Also if it's the Spaceship it could be a retool of Doubledealer.

    with little nerdluck tapes!

    I think astrotrain or leader class shockwave might be easier spaceships, but I want those Nerdluck tapes now. Maybe spaceship soundwave/soundblaster and the extra cost is the full roster of tapes. Doubledealer would also work for Foghorn Leghorn or Marvin’s weird bird henchmen, being a space chicken.

    Or Yosemite Sam as a cover of gun megatron. Durn Tootin.

    Honestly my top pick would be taking Huffer and ER Prime's trailer and retooling the bot in to a Looney Tunes looking character (complete with painted/molded Tune Squad jersey) and putting stuff in Prime's trailer so you can turn it in to a basketball court (or at least a half court).

    Prime/Trailer plus tooling would hit that price easily...but someone like Huffer would be easier to paint up with the jersey because his bot mode chest isn't visible in alt mode. And you could easily replace that truck shell with any number of things.

    Also, Huffer would be smaller than Prime and look better paired with a court. And since he's a Deluxe instead of a Voyager bot you've got some buffer in the cost/budget to load up on basketball or Acme accessories.

    EDIT: Oh oh oh!

    I just realized with a little bit of wiggle room you could sell three Deluxes for $60 and have $10 wiggle room to hit the $70 price.

    So do two guys retooled (one as a Tune Squad the other as a Monstar) and then take Ironworks and retool him so that his tower mode looks like a hoop.

    I just realized if this is Space Jam then that would mean WB told Hasbro they can't do a Transformer based on the Batmobile or the Mystery Machine, but Looney Tunes go ahead.
