    If Ed Hardy had a stroke that is what the dead part of his brain would look like.

    If all else fails, donate them to charity.

    And that's why this is great for them. They take the licensing money and let somebody else worry about selling stuff they don't have expertise in.

    The playsets seem interesting, but I'm hoping that there is some ability to interact with the smaller transforming TFs like the Legions and One-Steps. They better succeed where the supreme Bumblebee failed.

    Micromasters are not that bad. At least they TRANSFORM.

    Fuck me, check out the prices on those Philip Plein Transformers shirts. $200-500 for a cotton tshirt. I'm still kicking myself for buying a $60 tshirt. And the Canadian dollar was at par then, so it really was $60.

    Some cool looking shirts, no doubt, but I'm not dropping half a grand on something that I'm going to eat and sweat in, unless it's a really nice tent with a vestibule for my motorcycle.

    If I had a few million, sure, but I'd still feel like I'd wasted money. I'd have to buy a few cows and water pumps for some village somewhere just to atone.

    Why can't they offer the TF license to those 3P companies to make better transforming toys? Or maybe outsource it instead?

    actually I don't care if they don't transform but if they are in the robot mode, I love the revoltech line (have all) and until now I'm waiting for new Transformers revoltechs.
    About a car that doesn't transform, that's a big nope for me, maybe I buy sideswipe and strongarm, but nope.

    They would have to kill me to get it on, so you're not wrong.

    Seconding this hard. I'm all about some high-quality root mode figures... or models. Every time I see a Gundam kit these days, I quietly grieve for what might have been.

    I know the likelihood of a collector's grade Transformers model kit is really low, but I'd go for that. Especially since the best we get in that regard is the cheapo Kabaya kits...

    I've not seen those MLP clothes anywhere. Now I'm gonna have to seek them out! I need those pyjamas!

    And Stickle Bricks are back! Woo! I loved those as a kid!

    But on topic, I'd buy Die Cast TF's. I've got the Tomica TF:p rime Optimus and he's a fun little toy. But then I've been collecting die-cast cars since I was a nipper, so these appeal to me no end.

    As for the ladies clothing, I'm going to bet a Penny to a Pound that they're aimed squarely at anyone under a size 12... which will exclude it's primary target audience! And I'm not being offensive, I'm speaking from experience as I'm a fatty! I can't get into any ladies T-shirts as they're all pulled in at the sides, thus making them far too tight even if I buy several sizes bigger than I need. So I always just buy regular T's. I love that dress, but I'm never getting into it... without liposuction! :lol 

    Overall, I think this is a cool announcement.

    You know i would have loved those as a kid when i was into Hot Wheels and cars like that.

    they came out at the wrong time IMO for me.
