    I think more than anything, this shows a Transformers movie can be made with both some practical effects (obviously, most of it would still need to be CG'ed) AND a Diaclone aesthetic.

    It has our company's logo.

    Maybe this is why Takara can't afford to continue the Legends line.

    Despite the sarcasm, one has to wonder...

    Well, it's a good investment for the progress of engineering in any case, but whether Takara is going to reap much profit from it in the short run is another matter.

    Yea. I don’t like the whole package sharing. Feels like the QC will go to crap due to Hasbro having a hand in it.

    Car mode looks very RID2015. They should use these in a live action reboot, it\'ll be much easier to keep track of them during fights :D 

    Pretty cool though.

    KSI is real!! The slow transformation reminds me of the way I transform Studio Series Bumblebee; so none of his panels pop off.

    I can see where this is going… Takara will keep refining these until they have made a pilotable transforming mech — then we’ll have a real life Diaclone!

    Then Hasbro will get involved, adding AI with personalities written by Marvel and before we know it Megatron will be controlling our minds with Hypno Chips!
