    $700 Hasbro Optimus Prime

    Possibly the coolest toy I’ve ever seen...



    BTW it sold out quick.

    Impressive, but it' doesn't seem a toy to me.

    The little girl is adorable--very dramatic lol.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    I *almost* pulled the trigger on this, but something told me not to.

    With all those components and motors, too many things could go wrong. If even one of those 27 servo motors goes you're left with a $700 piece of junk that won't transform.

    I talked myself out of it really quick.

    I know it's super nitpicky, but some of the video showed the head without the red plate on the back, and others showed it with, but I'm assuming it comes with the plate. That's "off model" enough for me to completely disregard this...because I need to, because that price is insane. But I am VERY tempted. Never going to happen, but still tempting, and very, VERY cool.

    If there’s easy access to open up that bad boy, I’m sure a good R/C shop or some computer geek would be able to fix it.

    I don’t collect Transformers, but I was very tempted myself. Thank goodness is already out of stock. But I’m sure more models are coming soon. If they lower the price over time, let’s say around the price of a Hot Toys figure ($250-$300 range), I’d get one.

    I noticed Kevin Smith and Jay’s face were blurred out today. I don’t get it...
