    I like this G1 Bumblebee head on that body more than the Micheal Bay head.  It looks cool.

    Hasbro has been showing a lot of love for the Star Wars games in their Black Series line, with the Gaming Greats stuff... I'm surprised we're not seeing more from the War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron games. They were and are pretty well loved by the fans. Straight up re-releases of the prior toys would be the laziest method possible... but remastering and re-releasing the games would go over much better...

    Either way, I'll check out the AR game. My wife likes Pokemon Go and we usually fire it up while we're out and going around.

    Keep in mind folks, this is a mobile game, this isn't a mainline game, also high moon ain't ever making a tf game again, and the next game probably won't be ready till 2022-2023.

    Seeing as how Mobile Games need PVP, I'm sure there will be Teams like Pokemon Go, to encourage in-game purchases.

    Easy fix, since the Next TF Movie Takes place in the 90's, make a Retro Game.

    Pokeformers, gotta catch\'em all...
    Didn\'t we have this already? Oh yeah it was called Armada, we just did not all have smartphones then. 
    The purple-green femmebot, is that maybe supposed to be Shadow Striker?

    I too wonder if the Transformer labeled Shadow Striker is also named Shadow Striker.

    That's one thick, small headed Bumblebee. Like out of a Dreamwave character profile book.

    As I understand, adding a friend in one Niantic game now adds them in all of them?
    So add me in Pokemon Go now and we'll send gift or trade or whatever long distance interactions will be available in the TF game.
    My Friend Code is 7344 8592 9134.

    Why does Bumblebee's face give me Shrek vibes?

    I thought this was going to be a TF x Heavy Metal movie crossover.

    I don't think I've ever seen a Bumblebee design put windows on the chest before, it gives him an interesting look.

    For anybody who wants to play this game but doesn’t reside in New Zealand, I believe you can change your location. Here’s a video that explains how to change your location on iOS or Android:

    I think it should work…
