    I can't Believe Hasbro haven't learned from the past and are trying to fob us off with non-transforming transformers. What a crock.

    All that plastic wasted on something that will not be bought - its kinda sad :(

    is this hasbros way of slowly de-evolving transformers to a non-transforming toy line, then doing away with them altogether? someone attacked me when i ragged on power core combiners cause they were geared for kids, but now i know hasbro does think all of our kids are ******ed with special needs. i hope these designers realize soon that recession or not, these are not acceptable.


    Transformers, now cheap M.A.S.K. knock offs with less cool gimmicks and no action figure.

    Actually RPM's, you know the transformers that don't transform, were a huge sales success. That means Hasbro will expand upon a new market.

    Umm they do transform. Just not into robots.

    And it's not like we're not getting plenty of regular transforming robots between Generations and Yellowbox. Well, once they start showing up in numbers anyway, lol.

    This would be true if Hasbro would stop releasing various legends, scouts, deluxes, voyagers, leaders and supremes...OH WAIT. WE'RE GETTING TONS.

    What's wrong with some extra variation? It's not too hard to imagine a third (motorized) mode deploying various guns on the alt mode might be a bit hard to work into most TF toys...if you don't want these, then don't buy them.

    These ARE acceptable.

    Which Entertainer is that? The ones in west London ran out of Starscreams months and months ago. Plus he's getting more and more expensive online... It's still wall to wall shelfwarming Mixmasters, Ratchets, Deluxe Skids', Mudflaps, Ravages and bike bots.

    Thank goodness, I can't find a deluxe Mudflap ANYWHERE.



    :p 

    As for the other stuff, it's just ancillary products, and likely not even handled by the main TF team... it's not like they're "taking away" resources or shelf space from the regular stuff.

    I wish hasbro would start looking at stores inventory. I'm so sick of mudflap. I hate him. All he does is fill up the isles at my local TRU and Target stores.

    Here we go with the "Zomg, Hasblow sellin' non-transfurmin' tois, wtf."

    First off, according to them the RPMs sold better then they thought, so they're expanding the line. Besides, THEY STILL TRANSFORM from car or truck to armored attack vehicle.

    Also, get over it. It's not for you? Don't buy it. You have TONS of Transformers stuff coming your way. I don't get why everything has to appeal to everyone or else it sucks.

    Any TF merchandise I don't want to buy (everything listed in the OP) is GOOD TF merchandise. Money in my wallet, happy day.

    Yeah totally. Would have been cool had they done gears in classic Trailbreaker colors.

    Yeahhhh I'm not interested in these. They look along the same lines as the "bumper battlers" I think they were called.

    The Walmart pack looks terrible.

    I've been waiting on a return of MASK since GI Joe did the Matt Trakker figure. That it just happens to look like a crossover between MASK and Transformers is just icing on the cake.

    Then again I liked stuff like Car Wars a billion years ago when people played board games and the Mad Max movies with the weaponized cars so weapons on cars just works for me.
