    This would be great for the 20th anniversary of Armada.. collecting minicons… but I doubt they’d do that.

    Not sure how this'll turn out but at least some of the designs look pretty cool, and are clearly borrowing elements from the recent film. Bee and Skywarp in particular look pretty good.

    Really wish Hasbro would stop trying to make Cyberverse Shadow Striker a thing.

    Going to get a lot of people hurt. "Hey you! Kid! Why are you taking pictures of my car?" "Hey Kid! Get out of the road! Stop playing in traffic" "Hey there big boy, want to get in my creepy van?"

    Nice robot designs, they look cool. Shadow Striker looks amazing also.

    I hope no one playing this game will get in trouble considering how some people got hurt playing Pokémon go.

    I love that Bumblebee design. This sounds pretty interesting and I'll definitely give it a look once it releases.

    So, I'm assuming the same real world locations will just be the Same in Pokemon Go and another Niantic Game.

    I hope there are Minicons.

    Those designs are sweet. I see some cues from the Bumblebee movie.

    Yeah, this part stinks. Everyone is stuck playing as the Autobots. It'd be much more fun if you got to choose to align with Decepticons as well so the battles included real-life players on each side.

    Oh well. I don't play mobile games much anyways. I think there were reports of a console game being developed at some point? I'm looking forward to that.

    Be glad this isn't a crossover between Transformers and the movie Heavy Metal. :p

    And here we see the Hasbro in it's natural habitat, surrounded by opportunities for Armada references, which it continuously bats away, in order to elevate it's chosen mate, G1, which has made Hasbro it's bitch.

    Honestly, Pokémon Go and Transformers are two of the biggest components of my daily life, and I don’t want this at all.

    Pokémon Go is something I would quit if only I would allow myself to give up on them like they deserve. It’s still in constant active development, five years later. I can’t stop believing in the project’s potential, but they are worst, worst, worst, worst, worst software developers I believe I will ever see in my life and I will absolutely not buy into any of their future projects until they can get their main money maker on the rails. I was about to say “back on the rails,” but it’s never been there.

    Does this have evergreen designs for Shatter and Dropkick? I just saw the red and blue Decepticons and I\'m just wondering if they\'re supposed to be Shatter and Dropkick.
