    I'm just happy to see Hasbro hasn't forgotten they even released the damn thing.

    ...no one's gonna show Warden how to transform that crotch? Do that thing that he should really know how to do? He got it right in that one shot and not the rest of the vid? Hasui is right there...for like 20 secs...

    Also; "it comes with Spike", "exosuit from the show" and "awesome product photography".

    Yeah, wow; how did nobody catch that error until later in the shoot?

    I'm guessing Warden didn't transform Bumblebee himself until later in the shoot and they didn't want to redo the footage.

    Chances are Hasbo doesn't get the sweet licensing deal Takara gets through Tomy hence why we never saw Sideswipe and chances are if TT makes one a Hasbro Jazz.

    As it has been theorized, whenever they promote the toy they must have to leave the plate with the VW logo out so that the symbol is always pictured with the figure as part of the licensing agreement.

    That's grasping at straws, and if they entered into an agreement like that, they are an incredibly poor negotiator and must lose on every deal they make.

    Not really, it's a small thing to do just to make sure the toy gets an official release from Hasbro, compared to other car license holders who give Hasbro a hard time over things like transformation panel lines because it makes the car look broken.

    Does Hasbro contribute anything to the Masterpiece line these days, or do they just simply piggyback off of Takara?

    Chock full of fail!

    Hasui must have been cringing as he watched the PR morons at Hasbro botch his "masterpiece" of a creation.

    ZERO excuse for that.

    I truly do not understand WHY he's in such a massive box. That packaging alone is probably raising the cost by $20. The Takara packaging is a fraction of the size and there is a lot of empty space.

    That said, I'm glad he's coming out in the state but he is STILL cheaper to import even after shipping. I paid a little over $35 from HLJ back when he first came out.

    They are just now releasing this video? I just checked toysrus.com and....it is sold out. So what is the point of doing this now? To let people know that they missed out on buying it?
