8 Weird Transformers Toys That'll Make You Ask "What Were They Thinking?"

- Page 1


Transformers was one of the best shows and toy lines of our childhoods. There were so many different characters and everyone had a favorite. But sometimes they came up with ones that were so weird they were nobody's favorite, and these 8 are the absolute weirdest.

1) Chainclaw


Chainclaw was an Autobot shaped like a beast, so he disguised himself... as a bear... that wears a metal helmet and a gun on his back. Great disguise buddy.


2) Kup


Yeah, Kup was a big part of the show and a major member of the Autobots, but seriously, what even was his disguise? It looks like a pickup truck designed by Ikea.

Even his redesigns were weird.Hasbro

3) Cosmos


Remember that whole "Robots In Disguise" part of the show? Apparently Cosmos doesn't, because he disguises himself as a freaking flying saucer! Y'know, those things that I'm sure nobody would blatantly notice?


4) Reflector


Reflector turns into a camera. Like, a massive 80s film camera. That has an attachable flash. Yeah.

No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them.

But those are the facts and there's not much


13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who


Fireball Island Is Coming Back, And It's Bigger And Better Than Ever Before

We all became completely obsessed with the board game Fireball Island when we were kids. The game has become one of those relics from our past that is now worth a good chunk of change. The board game itself is listed for hundreds of dollars online and while I love the game, I don't know that I could justify paying that much for it.I mean, it's a classic, but I just can't justify it. Luckily for me, I won't have to. Because even though we all complain that everything old comes back, this time it's actually a good thing.

There was no event, no holiday, and no party that had the capability to bring the same amount of joy as a trip to Toys 'R' Us could. Okay sure, you can argue that Christmas was better, or your birthday was more fun, but think about it, Toys 'R' Us visits could happen at any time, but holidays are once a year. Okay, call me crazy, but it was absolutely the most fun outings ever, even if your parents didn't let you buy any toys. Why was it so fun just to wander around a store? Well, this may change
