wow, it’s gone up that much? Geez.
I hope someone programs Optimus to do the moon walk!
are they gonna make a megatron in a similar vein that you can program to shoot lasers?
First thing I'm doing to mine is figuring out a way to make that panel on the back of his head hinged and open/close on it's own.
I'm thinking all you would really need to do after hinging the panel is to attach a little bit of fishing line between the head and panel with enough slack to allow it to flop back when the head goes up, but when the head goes in it pulls it just far enough for it to flop closed.
Getting the fuel tanks to auto-transform would be good too but probably not possible without major mods. Maybe just make them spring loaded so they at least go one way automatically.
I hope someone finds an easy way to connect a hardware controller to this (via Bluetooth), still that basic controls (movement, transformation, etc) are supported without the need of an app).
That's so 2010's
Not really. In fact, it's future-proofing it in case the app and/or possible cloud features become obsolete.
Plus, hardware controllers, for this type of control, are simply better than touch controls.
Managed to snag one, but i'm unclear is it releasing in Oct or in July? I thought it had said july originally.
I can\'t wait for more of these Robots, hope they are able to decrease the price of these though
As they become popular and more common, then I guess that the price would decrease.
I wonder how smaller characters like Bumblebee might be priced.
Depends on the amount of motors and electronics.
I wonder how many would be onselling for a decent profit.
disappointed in one of the jay & silent bob dude says "convert" instead of transform ....haha
A Megatron that turns into a tank and shoots rubber/or nerf darts would be cool! Especially if you had a camera fitted.
So I looked through the comments of that video I posted and someone claims that this Optimus Prime was actually created by Robosen without a license (basically IP infringement) years ago and were selling it for $200. So did Hasbro just buy up Robosen and inflate the price or what?
I haven’t seen any evidence that the older versions were ever sold.
For those who are ordering outside the USA, do you know if the mobile app will be available through your app stores?
Just a thought. There are a lot of people making stop-motion videos using transformers. But just think about writing a program to send optimus on a mission throughout your house and mounting a camera on him. Just imagine : The battle for Kitchencon. Hope they do megatron soon. So excited about this!
apparently they are great friends outside of their acting careers!
