What's /toy/ opinion about robot toys transforming into buildings?
I just watched that movie a few nights ago.
it's kind of funny considering how the Transformers fandom loves Metroplex, Trypticon, Scorponok, Fort Max and etc...etc.
Few building robots are cool but whole series of them would be shit
well yeah that's true.
I wish i could own those skyscraper robots though.
difference there is those are like Battle bases and fortresses being transformed into. Basically they are turning into a playset and not just a static building. It is basically two different modes of play in one, either play with one great big massive toy or you can turn it into a playset to play with using a bunch of smaller toys that interact with it.
Turning into just a building, is a different story. could probably work in isolated examples done well, but not a full toyline.

considering how closely tied in with FAO schwartz they were for the movie, I would not be surprised if it was an actual toy prototype made for a proposed toyline that endedd up very similar to the scene in the movie with one person shutting it down completely and everyone else going 'ya know that makes sense'
