    umm this is really weird but i was watching BIG in case u never seen it its about a kid who wishes he was big and so he turns into an adult and somehow gets a job in a toy company. anyways theres a part where he suggest that there be robots that could turn into bugs.

    i bet somebody at hasbro saw that and thougt it was a great idea so to that i say. thanks tom hanks:thumb

    He made fun of an empire state building bot.
    he was half right.
    a building that transforms is stupid and he didn't get it.
    But a city bot....
    now we're talking.

    That thing was absolutely horrible. Even Bullet Man from GI Joe has more play value.

    Also wanted that tforming building , and I still think it would be great if they released a whole city like that. Could beef the Fort Max neighborhood up a bit.

    I also want my very own Richard Pryor

    I should dig around for them to see if I still have them but I used to have some really lame buildings that turn into vehicles and not robots.
