    Too expensive and they don't look worth it.

    I could buy a much nicer watch than what they wanted this for. I would wear this if I was 11 years old.

    One of the rare times Takara/Tomy made me go "WTF?!?!?"

    They're cancelled? GOOD.

    I hope that they do get cancelled on principle alone. If they were to release them with less gadgetry for $50, okay. If they released other molds with less gadgetry that turned into G1 inspired figures like the Blaster USB Hub or Ravage USB Drive or Grimlock Mouse for $50 or even $100, okay, but as is they were a big mistake.

    So, I can't spend hundreds of dollars on a toy that turns into a real working watch that I could have gotten as a kid out of a GUMBALL MACHINE? NO!!!!!! :cry 

    Okay, I exaggerate, but... seriously. These things are ugly watches. These things are ugly robots. Other than additional articulation, they don't have any major engineering advances over the ones I got as a kid (They don't incorporate the strap, the watches themselves are simple). There's no nostalgia factor because they don't look like ANYTHING.

    They AREN'T worth $300, and I don't know how Takara thought they could sell them for that. I could buy Masterpiece Grimlock and a REALLY good watch for that much.

    I'm guessing this was the brainchild of a new department that hasn't quite gotten it's head around the appropriate price point for this sort of thing. Either that or they spent WAY too much developing this thing.

    Hmm, I guess there IS a limit to how much people (including the Japanese) will pay for electronic novelties.

    I thought they were cool, and was willing to buy one.

    That's before we got the price, that is.

    The label series toys have always been a bit expensive, but what they were asking for this was insane.
