I hate to say it...but I'm actually really impressed with Optimouse Prime (or whatever his name is). Being the fan of Kingdom Hearts, that I am, I'm more versed in old Disney designs and the Disney look than I used to be, and I must say, Mickey's alt mode is done very well! I mean...that looks right out of an old Disney cartoon (maybe it helps that it's black-and-whiteish looking).

Yeh... the concept is utterly mental, but you've got to say if you had to have a Disney character transform (I mean, we've had Star Wars and superheroes...) it'd be hard to make it look better than that.

If this goes much further, we will soon see a Transformers-themed ride at Disneyland, Disneyworld, Eurodisney, etc., etc. To keep it family-friendly, Disney will show Autobots and Decepticons showering each other with confetti (or some such thing) rather than engaging in total war.

It'd be true to the original cartoon at any rate...

Grimlock looks awesome! It will sadden me to part with the $150 to buy him though.

All I can say about the sewer rat transformer is What the F___?!

Does anyone know if there are plans to release these outside of Japan?

Not necessarily planning on picking them up (though its WTF value battling hard), but if they release a Darkwing Duck I may make an exception if I can get it somewhat cheaply.

I can see into the future - one night when I am slightly inebriated and on ebay I will buy this.

Now, I'm crying....

I WANT Grimlock, which is bad enough, but seeing that Mickey (Brimstone skewered the joke - Optimouse Prime) is enough to send me howling into therapy
