    There are a number of these videos, but in this one, you can see the dog. It's a consumer-robot style version of the JD company's mascot (similar to the types of robot toys you see in the shops) :

    Here are some more pics, Játékshop has all of them listed and they even have names!
    And indeed, love that the numbers in the text refer to the sum of them! Heck even their names have the number in them!

    I also found them on ebay:
    EMCO POCKET MORPHERS SERIES 2 COMBINE ALL NUMBERS TO CREATE MASTER BLASTER 0-9 | eBay

    And here are some of the combinations. Love that the total does add up with the number-names!
    Also seems the CGI art shows 0 and 3 mixed up in color. It is 0 and 9 that are yellow, and 2 and 3 that are blue.

    If that is a 1-1 KO that Unicron might make the original toy look spiffy with those Gold spines place on it.
    I wonder if they are an intercompatible size ?

    As for the JD doggie - perhaps they make some sort of branded Keychain or something that could at least stand in for the Doggie.

    He looks easy enough for someone to make if they are artistically inclined.

    If you're near (or know someone near) the San Diego Zoo, I saw them there this summer.

    Power Trailer alt mode looks good. Power Trailer bot mode looks like Magneto about to attach a grill to a truck working in a factory :D 

    I really dig that panda bot. I would appreciate more info about it.

    That red truck looks really good. I would like to know more about that as well.

    Wow, with this cross compatibility I’d want all of these with their packaging, and likely duplicates where I might not need the packaging. I almost feel like there is or would be a website/page/thread where users post pics of their combinations and associated names.

    Hey Paul @SirToys , have you seen these during your hunts? I’ve typically seen your numbers, letters & math symbols that combine into a robot. But these (“series 2”) options and any of their predecessors/successors would be nice pickups.

    It's a pretty standard zoo item. You can get them on Aliexpress much cheaper than the zoo. I like to take my kids to the aquarium and, they have them all for like $12 a piece.

    I can attest to this. St. Louis zoo has these animal transformers all over the place.

    Might be worth checking if you live near a zoo or ever visit one.

    (yikes that link...) If you want to go this way, A number of people on AliExpress have them. Simply searching "Panda Robot" pops them up. Takes a few pages of scrolling, but they are there.

    this seems to at least show that they actually plan to release all 5
    (not my pic, found on transfans page)

    On another note, Given the artwork on the boxes, and the fact they don't come with the hand/ foot pieces, you guys think they are going to KO an upgrade kit? or maybe make their own?

    They didn't release any add-ons for the dinobots, so I wouldn't hold my breath. Never know though, not like KO companies are consistent ;)
