If they aren't functional cameras, I kinda don't understand why they transform like they are? What's the point of preserving the central lens/shutter area if it's just dead space? I would think they could get a much better-proportioned robot than what we are seeing. It really makes me wonder if they weren't planned to be semi-functional originally.

Regardless, I would buy one for the oddity of it if they were less expensive. I hope they don't do a Nikon next, or I might be forced to buy 2.

Yeah the whole 'torso is still a whole camera' bit is the other half of why I felt it should be a functional camera. Because I might actually pay titan class prices for a transforming camera that actually took pictures. Like even if it's not much better then an average cell phone camera; I'd still buy it for the actual novelty of a real working camera that transforms.

So non functioning and not to scale.

So even if you're a camera collector there's not really any point to these, nor any reason for them to look like that. Did Canon engineer the transformation?

I would assume, like the other "collaboration" TT Transformers, it was to promote the brand/product. Thus, they have kept the product and brand features at the forefront of even the bot mode, regardless of how gimped it might look.
