    Candy toy, I'd guess. There's a "Gum" sub-heading next to "TRANSFORMERS". That's the type of thing they do to appease the law that "toys" can't be sold in grocery stores. Allows them to claim this is technically "Candy" with a "prize" or whatever.

    Mmm... New candy toys :)

    Dude, they ALL rock! :D 

    For so-called Candy-type kiddie toys, they sure pack detail and pizazz!
    Its TakaraTomy's way of shadow-introducing the new line of WST toys! Star Saber! OMG. :D 

    THIS! ;)  :D  :thumb

    This is the first release in a while that's gotten my attention.
    Do we have an idea of scale?

    That's what I was guessing... and I'm OK with that. More quality figs taking up less space is a plus in my book.

    Boooo! Be more funny!

    *Cough* STAR *cough* Sabre. No Vicotory Leo included....

    JTF-snobbbery aside, these look AWESOME! A definite pre-order as soon as someone figures out how to import 'em!

    I like these, and for $5 a pack you can't go wrong! I like the two Primes the most. Will keep an eye out for them.
