    Mentioned price in the headline as I’m not sure the size class designation and this isn’t the $24.99 one. Found at Target in Ft. Wayne, IN. 511DA837-B76D-4603-83BD-D8DE8AB8EBA0.jpeg B0064E3D-0EBA-4B96-B964-8F94832E1D4E.jpeg

    Thanks. I couldn’t remember the size class at all. I got lucky and found a Leadfoot there, too

    Since his facemask reminds me of Liberty Prime I wonder what's recorded on his voice chip.
    Oh. I guess it's not that kind of voice gimmick :lol

    I saw this abomination of Hasbro's "brilliant" product managers on Thursday. The only sighting worth posting is seeing it in a dumpster.

    $50 for something that would be a rip-off at $12. I don't even think it makes sounds. It just has the same blinking light as the $24 garbage.

    Thin razor sharp plastic, dollar store quality articulation, worthless gimmick, big box, high price. THE COMPLETE HASBRO EXPERIENCE IN ONE GARBAGE TOY.

    The Optimus one will be a Walmart exclusive, apparently.

    Hasbro keeps insisting on using this dark blue color for their clear plastic, and it looks awful.

    That being said, darker colors hide transparent plastic flaws more easily (especially for 'swirly' clear plastic).

    Saw this today, surprised kids would have to save $50+tax for this thing.

    Obviously not aimed at me but even if I were a kid or parent, I would hesitate picking this thing up.

    For sure. I believe that children deserve better.

    LOL. So true. I was in the Toys section at a TARGET, and a parent was breaking down a similar dynamic about how cheaply things are made nowadays to her son.
