    And this will be anywhere from 200 to 400 dollars at Botcon. All joking aside Hasbro needs to launch a signature line like this. The special edition repaints that are only available from HTS of Classics from 2006 is actually a step in the right direction of this signature line. The Botcon boxset says adult collectible so obviously Hasbro knows adults do collect things like this.

    I find it ironic that Optimus comes in a wood box (a coffin?!), considering that Transformers are giant metal robots from another planet. I'd much prefer he come in a nicely detailed metal tin.

    Anyhoo...

    What if he was made out of wood himself?

    Would that help?

    It is Ironic that a metal robot is in a wooden box, but this way we can have the
    combination of robotic and organic--- techno organic if you will. I like this set, if it
    becomes available in the USA I'll try to buy it.
