It says:

Says the same for every single other toy on BBTS.

And on Entertainment Earth.

Those online retailers just recently added this as a standard disclaimer so they can't be held liable for any actual not-suited-for-kids toys they sell. Easier to do this across the board than keeping track of which products actually require it.

Ah. A bit like Danger: Avoid death.

Although now that I think of it, I don't suppose that he's aimed at children.

Man, how childish, right? I mean, why wouldn't we expect this sort of thing from a toyline?

Herbie is way to cool to be associated with Bumblebee.

It doesn't look that bad. Also what in the world is with everyone who hate this line? These things are being made for kids, not 20 or over adults. It doesn't even look that bad. Hell I hope they do a repaint for Darkwing.

No, they're being made as collector items for adults, going by the price-to-size ratio of Mickey.

Japanese toys don't really seem to be all that cheap anyway. Aimed at kids or not.

Oh, no no no no.

The best response to the whole boiling.

Although... think about it... If these Disney crossovers turn out to be highly unpopular, we ought to be buying them up to save against future rarity value... but that might mean they're not thought of as unpopular and the round starts again... Pluto? Minnie Mouse? Chip'n'Dale?

Because these people suffer from the affliction of being Transformers fans, and all the pious posturing that comes with it? Imagine it, the Transformers brand being used to make child's toy based on a long-standing property owned by an international corporation...

Shocking. :eek:

Are people afraid that non-initiated people (aka not-true-fans) might think buying Transformers toys is a childish hobby? :o

Ah, Taikaviitta (Finnish name for the character, rough translation; Magic-cape?). I've read many of his, mostly poorly written, adventures as a kid. Still, I'd prefer Darkwing Duck.

This is brilliant. Much more unique looking than the Micky one (which I wanted but never had the funds to get). I am a bit confused why they can make him a VW bug though, and not Bumblebee anymore? Donald Duck isn't associated with war too?

Not sure why the negative reactions, its not different than the crossover toys we get here, which are in my opinion even stranger. Star Wars characters and Marvel comics characters are no less odd, yet I never see people blasting those. I guess they are more "grown up"? Personally I think Walt Disney was fantastic, and enjoy many of the older vintage Disney films and cartoons. Especially Herbie ;)

I'm not the one getting all worked up about a minor Japanese exclusive aimed largely at a different demographic...

This probably isn't as bad as the Mickey one (mainly because I'm a donald fan) but the prices are rediculous. Did the Mickey one get repainted?

But for this, I'll pass. Crossovers were mostly half-decent toys with a higher price than toys their size.

...moaing about the price if nothing else. A Darkwing Duck TFormer would rock, imho, even if it were a redeco of Donald.

Did the Mickey one get repainted?

Mickey had a B&W version up front and a "Halloween" version upcoming.

Man, if they're gonna do Darkwing Duck, I wanna see him with a Thunderquack alt mode instead of a VW.

If they do a PK or whoever darkwing's evil clone was (I forget, it,s been so long since I've watched that delightfully campy show), then I swear I will move to europe and start a new life as James P. Wallace. A Darkwing would be cool though. A version with a Huey headmaster, a Dewey targetmaster , and a Louie powermaster might induce mass suicide/homocide/genicide and ultimately lead to human extinction. Or something.:D

Hmm... Negaduck? I have not watched that show since... Damn probably since it had just stopped making new episodes.

And then?? A repaint to StarQuack, SkyQuack, RamQuack, Acid Quack, SunQuack??? Please NO!

Me thinks you are over reacting here. I do not think that any agreement that Disney and Tomy/Takara made would cover original characters. If anything besides Darkwing they should also do a Scrooge McDuck as either a Donald reprint/retool or as an armor truck.

If it is an Uncle Scrooge that transforms into a armoured truck, I'll buy it.

After looking though TFWiki, I noticed tha there doesn't seem to be a story for this series. Is this going to be something like the Alternators was here in the U.S., or is it that the story just hasn't been translated yet?

I know, just to point out what repainting could lead to...

I must say, however that I want to see an Uncle Scrooge (Called Dagobert here) as an Armored truck would be pretty awesome. But only if we get a Black Magic(a?) too... Or those thieves, we call them the heavy guys litterally translated, as three components combining into a van or something...

i kinda like this line, but i have a feeling somehow the new Kigndom Hearts video game will be using these designs somewhere in the game, somehow. If they weren't so pricey I'd prolly buy Donald....

If I had the money, I was contemplating it, because I'd like a nice representation of Herbie.
