    The universe did not need that video.

    Awful marketing.

    I was looking forward to what the designer had to say. You could tell he was passionate and had plenty to share. I learned that Bumblebee is a minibot, then they stopped the interview.

    Both Spike and Daniel wore the exosuit in the movie.

    Both of them were using the exo suits in the movie which is why this is Spike in the suit. Daniel would later require to be placed in the suit in the later seasons if I remember correctly.

    I had seen these for sale at my local TRU long ago. :p 

    They have, or had, both this and Bluestreak in stock. And the rest was history.

    I think Warden probably walked on a set with the figure already transformed to mimic the front of the packaging. I believe it was HIM that actually knew how to transform it correctly and he made sure to do so for a few shots ;) 

    When Optibotimus posted his pic of the packaging on twitter, I saw it right away and it bugs the shit out of me too. Paul didn't realize it when I pointed iy out but once you see it, you can't un see it.


    I'm guessing Husai thinks "us American fans are idiot" lol

    Pretty much exactly what I thought. A shame, because the Masterpiece line is arguably the best Transformers line ever made.
