    They're more solid than turbo changers, and a little bigger but not by a lot


    It turns into a corn dog, it's an American fast food

    He's a corndog. I'm still trying to figure out what the cluster of red things is supposed to be.

    I think we're more likely to see playsets of their stores (maybe connecting to build the BotBots Mall) that a combining BotBot. I would definitely like to see a combiner sold as a box set rather than blind boxed tho. Just in case anyone from Hasbro is lurking.

    They have been busy. What with these, Siege and Studio Series, I might have to take out a mortgage!

    Thus is how Hasbro keeps us all broke and not buying 3rd Party toys. LOL

    Not at all - with how awful the distribution is, you probably have 2 years before actually seeing all of these in your local store. Gives you plenty of time to save and buy other things. :rolleyes2 
    By making more cutesy junk that young kids and girls will like? :lol 

    Honestly, if it had some sort of 5mm peg to function with our current collection (i.e. Minicons), I think these would have more appeal (to fans).

    As it is... it's like an impulse buy, I think. Some may try to "catch them all", but it's pretty removed from the mainline, imo. I'd call it a sister line, even.

    I love these things, don't get me wrong, but the quality of the mystery packs from TLK were lacking. :(  So it's hard not to call them junk (the plastic and build looks very similar to Tiny Turbos, i.e. cheap).

    You clearly have not been reading the reactions of fans right here on this and others forums if you think these aren't appealing to anyone but girls and little kids.

    Reminds me of the old Mcdonald Transformers, the ones that went from Mcdonald food item to robot

    Pretty sure Burger-Tron was named as a fandom joke itself. There was a gag about that here on the forums awhile back. A "hamburger optimus prime but named after megatron." The rest of the story checks out though. Or at least makes a cute enough story not to question.

    I think the corndog (not sure if it's S'up Dawg or Hawt Diggity) is my favorite. I like the color scheme and he's got great proportions in robot mode (accounting for the big head inherent in super deformed characters)

    I agree. I like him (and I think the hot dog is Sup dawg, so he's probably hawt diggity)

    Okay, these pics are getting my attention. Just to confirm, are the faces painted/tampos or stickers?
