    You and me both. Ever since Hasbro made that stupid contract that only THEY can have transforming toys it's REALLY put a damper on anything TF-related fast food items.

    I still miss these:

    I didn't even realize McDonald's TF toys couldn't transform now. That's depressing.

    Yeah, at some point after '08 Hasbro made either a clause or filed a patent that made it so only they could make transforming toys of our favorite bots. It honestly sucks cause McDs had some great TF toys in past promotions.

    Bought it for my kid... totally not impressed.
    Moving its left arm shifts the holofoil chest.
    The little pony is much better.

    While I like the idea they were going for here, these are pretty weak.

    I'd like to see figures like this but instead of a flat card on the inside of their chest-plate there could be working mechanisms or something. I was thinking along the lines of these:

    Hey that's uncalled for. THIS is the kinda stuff mods should be editing, it clearly goes against rules on picking on people/making people feel bad.

    (to the 3 related posts:) 
    These are HASBRO toys, guys. Hasbro makes these to support the Transformers franchise through cheaper means for children/familes. It's definitely a money/parts cost, reason. I mean they clearly did make them tf until the rise of production costs. Except during the original live action films because of the complexity & superiority of the transformations. ;) 

    That's what I was thinking. That maybe US will be releasing these around the time of the release date of the CYBERVERSE MOVIE, they hinted us about.

    ???

    Dude lost his favorite toy. That’s sad. There’s a time when I would have been heartbroken to lose McD’s TM Dinobot.

    Finally someone understands that every character needs to be Soundwave, McDonald’s gets it.

    Hi guys so just to be clear, this is NOT available at any US McDonald's currently? Or coming out next week? :) 

    So I was mistaken? I apologize I thought he was talking down to someone.

    And yet they're able to make $6 Family dollar toys that transform just fine...relatively speaking...
    Look, how hard would it be to make G2 Powermaster style Happy Meal toys that basically just stand up out of a base? Two parts, one pin on a hinge? You can't tell me that would cost more than a few dimes each to produce in bulk?

    Seems like those Botbots would be a perfect candidate for the happy meals.

    It's not that its hard its not worth it to them to spend the extra coin, to get molds produced then pump these out for a short production run. It just not cost effective. Especially when "kids" don't really care anymore. Sure they used to have amazing transforming happy meal toys and better quality anything but back in the 80-90s it was all about the toys. And its cheapen herein the US cause the quantity they need to produce for the country isn't worth investing in when that money can be used for actual line production for big box stores. Japan can do cool HM toys because they are used to small limited run turn overs. And easy way to think about it is like getting a custom shirt done, one shirt fully designed and colored could cost 20 bucks and it wont be until you reach a 100 unit order for it to drop down to like a dollar a shirt. Same as this, its not worth the tooling.

    I'd go along with that except they don't do it in the U.S. either, where the production run would be more than sufficient to justify the cost.
