    Damn, reading the title quickly I thought these were test shots from Transformers: Heroes.

    Ah well, those look pretty good.

    Same here. Looking forward to these now. I was on ebay a couple of hours ago and didn't see this so you caught it soon after listing.

    That Starscream figurine's pose appears to be based upon the Infiltration #2 incentive cover by Guido.

    Inspired, methinks.

    Are these like the mini Marvel and Star Wars heros? Looks like the same kind of line to me. And like those lines... I don't like them at all.

    Mirage: "Whoa, step back a bit there!"

    Starscream: "DURR HUH! ME STEP ON STOOPID CLOUD!!" :) 

    (Gotta say, I'm lovin' these cute lil' bastards.)

    I'm looking forward to these. I wonder if they'll start coming in sets where the box is set up as a scene, like the Star Wars galactic heroes. I sure hope so.

    I can see these appearing in photocomics everywhere when they hit mass retail. They're such cute looking little toys. I'll probably end up with a couple, they'll look great on my monitor.

    Great find Cataclizm, frontpaged and credited.

    These are going to be as huge as Galactic Heroes and Super Hero squad as well as inspire interest in G1 for the younglings. Hopefully, we will get some new G1 DVD boxsets, otherwise the kids are not going to recognize these, only from the parents shoving them in there face.

    I look forward to keychains, and the inevitable Exclusive boxset with repaints. With such a rich history to pull from this line could outlive several generations of TF merchandise. If Galactic Heroes is a clue to the longevity, these will be around for a long time.

    I have a bunch of the Marvel Super Hero Squad ones. I love 'em, they're so damn cute ^_^ Starscream looks absolutely adorable, I must have him.
