    I would totally go for these if real. I hated how the Micro Machines Transformers only did ONE G1 character with Tracks in that Optimus Prime playset.
    And if we could get Hot Wheels versions of all the 84, 85, 86 characters...

    Unfortunately, I do not know which character(s) or liveries Mattel is intending for these models.

    Both glad & yet disappointed that there's no JDM models in this assortment though.

    This is not the "crossover" I expected. This sounds like more TF cars.

    Feels more like a marketing agenda to up brand engagement, raise views, lower churn, etc. :rolleyes2 

    But with the AGGRESSIVE nature of Hasbro raising toy prices (after much of the Pandemic costs have dropped), really raises the question of whether or not these "crossovers" are a solution for dropping sales numbers. It feels rather tone deaf when you consider the logistical/distribution and crazy high prices issues. Or the sucky media not lifting the brand much at all.

    Hot Wheelz. Yeah. Surely that will make a significant difference! :lol

    Maybe we’ll finally get a proper Speed Stars Mirage/Dino.

    It probably won't happen, but it would be neat if they had robot modes printed underneath like the Robot Powered Machines and Speed Stars from the movies.

    When playing Transformers UNO, does one have to say One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall when a player only has 1 card in hand? Asking for a friend.

    No, I suspect these will be typical Hot Wheels with the equivalent of "airbrush artwork" tampoed on the sides.
