    Everything worths for a collector.

    I wouldn't buy them though. However, a lot of people will tell you that those figures are great, so it's up to you.

    If I was a fan of the cartoon, I'd be all over those.

    As it is, I'll wait for Circuit Breaker and the neo-knights.

    I am a huge fan of the cartoons and almost anyone on the boards know that
    I am a hard-core G1 fan, but the price seems a little bit high for me.
    It is really hard for me to decide...

    Well don't forget they are the same scale as a Diaclone pilot figure. So they can sit in 84/85 cars, and jets. Couple the size with the production run numbers and you have a $40 price tag.

    Being a big G1 cartoon fan I want them, but, money's tight right now, so maybe if they drop the price....

    Me personally no, I wouldn't pay that much for something so tiny I would most likely lose them in a week. Someone else may feel different and think they are worth it. It all depends on the collector.

    I've seen them in person. Not worth the price for figures about the size of the minifigs that come with the SW/TF toys.

    Considering how I just wasted two hours of my life trying to find Cobra Commander's tiny gun all over my house, I'd say no, something that small is not nearly worth it.

    I mean, it's not like you'd pay that much for those little pilot figures that come with Star Wars TFs.

    My love for G1 has nothing to do with how useless and ugly I feel these overpriced things are. No. Thank. You.

    There cool for the sake of wow factor "It's spike and sparkplug with the g1 autobots! Spikes sitting in hound. sparkplugs in prime!"

    but only the most diehard of collector trans geeks will understand the value of your purchase. If they can even see them. Their small enough that even micromasters are giant skull crunching behemoths comparatively.

    They also have those ridiculously small hard hat and wrench accesories.

    If you want tiny diaclone size pilots in general each of the star wars transformers comes with one.

    I definitely would pass. Moreso now that I noticed the manufacturer's website (http://impossibletoys.com/) has this message:

    "Account for domain impossibletoys.com has been suspended"

    Something tells me not to truss this company

    Ditto. Price would need to come down at the least.

    They're to expensive. If you're looking for a cheap alternative, find some old ARMY G.E.A.R. toys. They had small soldiers that could bend at the waist, and had straight or bent legs (like when you're sitting on a chair), they fit perfectly in old G1 cars. I used to put mine in OP and the battlestation thing in OP's trailer as well as Snarl.

    Of course it's not worth it. If you were an objective rational human being (ie. a non-TF collector) there's no way you could rationalize this purchase. But you're not. Subpar toys like G1 Slag and the other Dinobots get huge amounts of dough thrown at them by mad collectors when you could use that cash on various other things. Will people buy these? Yes. Will they end up going for more eventually? Of course. That's how hobbies work.
