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

    I hope they improve the app, because the buttons are using the evergreen design?

    Don't count on it, those are already highly produced and not placeholder. They've got the evergreen design on the box too.

    If they made this transform into a ROOMBA, sales for it will explode.  Imagine a transforming Optimus ROOMBA that will actually be useful.  Moms everywhere will cheer!  LOL

    It is a toy, so it's useful for what it was intended to do, entertainment.

    Let me just say I'm really glad we're getting this pretty box they originally advertised (though without the numbering):

    And not whatever this was supposed to be:

    The one below depicts the product as it is, the one above is just prettier.

    The bottom one is also unattractive.

    I wouldn't say it is even a good representation of the product either, since the bot mode on the side shows him with his head turned to the side in a way the real toy cannot do. The top one already doesn't look like the real figure so it doesn't give as much of a false impression of its abilities.

    I personally like the one below better… the one above looks more like Energon Optimus.

    i also like my box on the outside to be a representation of what’s in the inside.

    The trailer will be where all the dust will be stored.

    I pre-ordered this when it was first announced and the estimated date of delivery on the order is 8/2/21. However if you click on the main page it states estimated delivery 10/1/21. Does anyone know if this is the original date pushed back or if the release date of a second batch I'm not aware of please ?

    Based on how it went out of stock during its first day of sale and then came back up with the 10/1 date I think it's a later batch. So you and I and others who ordered it early are probably in the August batch.

    Boxes go to the trash or storage anyway.


    If you display boxes, more power to you. You must have a 6,000sf home to do that.


    I ordered one the moment it went up on HP. I seriously can not wait for this. 30 years in the making!

    Ready to be released maybe???

    Not at all, you do you. I deleted my post because it's completely irrelevant. I could not care less what you all do.

    Moving on.

    People can display it in alt mode, not a big deal...

    I thought they just did a week ago. They haven't said anything more.
