Shocking.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

Darkwing's a Tornado, not a duck. You people suck.

I still think it is kind of cute. Not something for myself but would be a cool present to a younger fan.

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....
