LOL....found him in Target today. So, this toy is rated for ages 4+. I knew I was in trouble when I had trouble getting him out of the package:p I spent 5 minutes and still haven't gotten him into "sport car" mode! Where's a smart 5 yr. old when you need him???????:D

LOL...OK...have had 3 different people work on ...one was actually of the "Transformer Era" and not a one of them can get this this changed!:p:p:p I can bascially get it to the right form, just can't get the sides to close in around the car. Do they slide in somehow?
I repeat...ages 4+??????;):p

got any pics? There were some leaked a while ago but it looked more like a Chinese knockoff R8 - production version any better?

Someone had another one sent to me and I got it in the mail today. It's totally different! And thankfully, this one is already in the "sport car" mode! Still says Sideways....but it is a tad smaller and has a slightly different look to it.

The other still sits on the counter waiting for someone with enough smarts to get it together:eek:

The one pictured is the one that was leaked a bit back... looks like it WANTS to be an R8.. and just might if it tries hard enough

Nowhere on the pkg. does it say he is an R8. I'm thinking Transformers (Hasbro) did not want to pay royalties to Audi...so he is not the perfect image. Just a guess!
LOL...can't say for sure, since the other one still is not "transformed", but this one may just be the bettering looking of the two!
