Did Hero FactoryŽ "Inspire" These Transformers Toys? Posted by Richard on November 2, 2013 at 10:30 PM CST:
Its a shame that The LEGO® Company isn't the one producing these Transformers constructable action figures, which are being made by Hasbro. They seem to have been inspired by Hero Factory's base elements, except with a transformers theme that actually looks more interesting than the recent Hero Factory designs. Its impossible to tell if the ball joints are compatible with similar LEGO Elements without buying one and trying, but even if they work together the armor itself appears to connect to the base via a proprietary, and therefore incompatible connector.

Dave starts this retro news reviewing two more combiner models, recolors one of them, and takes a look at past prototypes. The LEGO® store exclusive Tahu Nuva swords show up in the mall kiosks. Dave attends a couple store events, and his bad luck turns to good as he finds some deals I wish I could have gotten my hands on.
