?

Do you think this new product could be stepping away from what we love about Transformers as toys?

    Probably posted, but saw this old video of prototypes of what looks the same thing. I hadn't even considered the constructicons

    Edit: nevermind, was on the previous page lol

    I was thinking Prime was talking to Megatron to settle something like a prisoner exchange. But I like your version better!:p

    I do remember these, thanks for the repost! I can't believe it's been almost 4 years already!

    That Hot Rod is going to bring around a whole bunch of scale conversations if it comes out :)

    Reminds me of Looney Tunes with the Sheep Dog and Coyote. They clock off of "work" & are friends.

    If they do make other chars they will have to be pretty close in size.. all the motors are gonna be the same size and any smaller than prime things are gonna get fugly.. Infact the only reason prime works is cause he's a square with a rectangle off the back.. a roundy like bumblebee may even be bigger than prime..

    Honestly i ordered prime..but going to be one and done on the self transforming..dont get me wrong would be cool to see..but wont be in the market..unless they make all 6 constructicons and have some kind of tech magic to combine them..then roboson/hasbro gets all my money

    Imagine the possibilities- and then imagine the cost.


    Thanks to Diego Maldonado for making this video.

    Now imagine Superion!

    I\'ve been away from tf collecting for a long time and only planned to pick up a few mps (probably all v3 seekers) this year.  Just picked up arcee recently and saw this on my youtube feed...  thought it was an april fools joke lol... 

    Wasn\'t even a question, I had to have this.  I was fortunate to get a preorder on the second wave on the robosen site. 

    Is it confirmed to be the same model or is the robosen site one with different specs? 

    I saw earlier in the thread that hasbro had an email going out saying some specs were different.  Would the second wave be slightly improved to justify the hike?  Would not make any damn sense to have to different versions on release unless they had some sort of materials or supply issue, but if the last year has shown us anything, wierd insane shit is not off the table and anything can happen.

    Definitely looking forward to programing prime to do some a parka dances and some nature boy antics at end of year lol.

    The only thing that is different is the box with the Robosen one. The actual robot is exactly the same I believe it's in Robosens FAQ section.
