It looks ridiculous but it's kind of got a cheesy charm to it. If I were an upper middle class parent with one or two kids who already have a bunch of "regular" transformers to play with, I would no doubt buy this as a sort of flashy special toy that stands out for special occasions.
Now that\'s a pretty cool toy! I hope its available in the Philippines!
pretty sure the difference between "stands there and transforms back and forth" and "actually moves around like a monkey" is, like, several hundred dollars
it's not a robosen
This seems half hearted, it could have easily included monkey movement with 4 limbs but all it does is stand there in both modes? Plus the robot mode the legs should extend further as he looks stunted still
He's really fun, has a lot of phrases. He transformed to beast mode and said, "Were you expecting a truck?" and chuckled.
I don't care what anyone says, I think he's cool and I never thought we would get something like this for beast wars. 11 year old me would eat this up almost as much as modern me lol
Got mine today

so, his voice clips make him seem like BW cartoon Primal because he mentions the Predacons and when transforming to beast mode he said, "We cannot remain in robotic form for long."
its for Christmases and birthdays of the lil' kids. it's a big, cool toy that is fun to show off and does cool stuff.
If it's not for you, that's cool, but don't try and impose collector mentality on a kids toy.
This is so bad, so bad in many ways that is good!
I will get it, no doubt about it, but will wait for a sale and believe me, it will be on sale.
the voice and music really hurt the appeal.
both sound like bootleg SFX, like they wanna be the Beast Wars theme with Garry Chalk but they're not. Optimum Primordial, magnify!
if you're not gonna get the beast wars theme just…do something else? like a big gorilla roar or something. instead of half-assing one thing, full ass something else And if theyre not gonna get someone to imitate Perlman then get Chalk himself for a few lines
they definitely should have checked the box for "master piece collectable" instead of the "obvious electronic christmas gift for children" box, they're definitely interchangeable and achieve the same end result
Who is this for really? Those who grew up with G1, Beast Wars or children who can't afford this? The video showing off this toy shows how bad it is, my gawd! It barely does anything, and nothing worthwhile. Yikes! They should have released a Master Piece collectable instead and called it a day. Whomever buys this is going to be tired with it in a matter of minutes.
That thing sounds an awful lot like Gary Chalk oddly enough.
It's fun and all but I'll wait til it goes the way of all movie toys these days and gets heavily reduced.
Man, between Robosen RotB prime and bumblebee, and the official reveal of this thing, today has been “they day of companies revealing voice activated robotic transformer toys that we already knew about”tm
I ordered one, it looks like fun.
Did anyone watch the video? This this is hilariously bad, especially for $125. I mean it's genuinely funny how bad it is and how apathetic BMac is about it.
It's up on Amazon as they have said. For the low price of $124.99
