?

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

    The programming feature looks really interesting. The idea of having a toy that not only I can pose as I like, I can also make moving as I like, is incredibly fancy.

    I mean, it's cool but more than I spent backing Unicron and for the money simply not worth it to me.

    I don't wanna be a downer, but a transformer that transforms itself kinda defeats the purpose.

    I had the same thought. This is a titan-sized figure with a parts count, engineering, and functionality so far outside of the realm of anything that has been done before. I could have imagined a much higher price.

    Imagine the entire g1 autobot cast all made like that in robot mode you say “autobot, roll out” and each one transforms in alt mode a dream.

    I vividly remember seeing a what if post in one of the threads, pondering about an auto transforming Transformers, and then BAM this. It was definitely at the top of the highly improbable "toy" that would happen in the near future but here it is. It would be cool if they can auto flip that cover thing behind his head. Also, can we get an alternate design head? MP-44 like? It would be awesome to have a matrix accessory and have him say light our darkest hour.

    HAHA sold out!

    Yeah its a trend for whatever item you want to get these days(ps5 I'm looking at you). Best I can tell you is to keep a look out for it to be restocked on pulse or see if other websites are carrying it for sale. Good luck!

    Well, it sold out quite quick, let's hope they make more to meet the demand.

    honestly pisses me off usa only exclusives , could be they were testing the waters to see if there was a demand for it and will open up more pre orders later on and with a bit of luck sort worldwide distribution

    Can't believe a site as big as CNET used footage of Unique Toys Challenger, Hasbro won't be happy lmao

    It will come back in stock.

    They probably didn't know the demand for this as its a new territory for Hasbro.
    Plus since its still a pre-order, I am sure they can increase production on this.

    AND It is back up....
    At first it wouldn't let add it to cart.
    But now I just checked out and purchase one.

    Unless it was a cancelation.... It should let you check out and purchase.

    I just scored one as well, not sure if it's cancelations or another wave.
