McDonald's Happy Meal Transformers Prime Figures
Killer. Gimme all please.
sweet, i eat a lot of mcdonalds this time of year due to my guilty pleasure of shamrock shakes so i will deff be looking for these!
WTF those look like Happy Meal toys!
Hmm I wonder if they Transform at all.
Neat! Can't wait to see some robot modes. Between these and the new ponies I'm going to be living off of McDonald's.
From the looks of em I think they may be the "Stand-Up Formers" like the speed-stars cars, if even that much. I see a disc launcher gimmick in Bulkhead, but don't get you hopes up. :\
They're FE versions, so they'll be cancelled and end up being sold at Jack-In-the-Box.

No Arcee? That's a bummer!
"One happy meal please."
Clerk handing me happy meal
"You forgot my toy."
Clerk hands me a Bumblebee
"I already have this one."
Don't you know. Nobody buys girl charachters. *grumble grumble*
Even the Happy Meal Knockout gets yellow wheels... so the Deluxe better as well- Looking at you Hasbro!! Also... *salivates*... Breakdown!?! Hoping he has his eye patch, but something tells me he won't. Pessimissm perhaps?
Gah. Really hope that's not the case, but the more I look at them the more you're probably right. Damn shame.
Or Airachnid. Because they're girls and icky and have cooties and stuff.
Well don't they know that Arcee's a bit of a tomboy? This is trival true but still this is finally Arcee's time to shine after all these years and you'd think that while she's getting many classes of figures in the RID line Hasbro would have her be in this line too!
Another argument over Arcee incoming. Calling it now. Although I suspect the reason she didn't get a toy is because of how simplistic these figures are compared to the bigger versions in transformation. A bike does NOT provide ample space for transformation at that size unless it looked (and transformed) like G1 Groove, who Arcee looks nothing like. Her omission is because of engineering impossibilities, not because of the idea she wouldn't sell (she's a goddamn free toy in a kids meal, the kid isn't really going to care who they get as long as it transforms)
Overall, these guys look pretty good. Very interested in getting Knock Out and Breakdown.
We know that. The kids know that. Toy companies don't know that. They just have this bizarre thought process that boys won't want toys of female characters. Which is ridiculous enough in and of itself, but especially when you have a girl character part of a team. Boy, girl, it doesn't matter. I's pretty sure kids in general want to own the entire team...
I still remember playing hell trying to find the female Power Rangers as a kid... Then again, I'm a girl, so I could be completely wrong on all of this.
i would do naughty things to get ahold of that knockout
Good point! I mean t;s not like this is a Commander Class figure we're talking about. Not having her in the line doens't really bother me really!
If Hasbro found out about how BOYS are buying My Little Pony toys they would have a different opinon!
