    Hello:
    :rock 
    New to the group. Thanks for having me.

    I found these little dudes while going through some stuff to put on ebay. Any idea what they are called? They're smaller than Minibots and Microns.

    Don't know the specific figure, but I presume that's a Micromaster.

    EDIT: Yep, I was right. This guy's Detour.

    Well...shows what I know. I thought the Micromasters were the miniature remakes of the gastault series.

    They can't be worth much. Especially with the rusted hubcaps. Although I've dusted it since this pic.

    I'll post the rest.

    Ah, Micromasters. I love those little buggers. The last G1 Transformers I ever got were the Micromaster set that included Tailspin and Swindler. In hindsight, I really should have gotten more of them. Hopefully Takara and/or Hasbro willa t some point pull out a bunch of the non-gestalt Micromaster molds and just reissue a huge box of 'em. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    That little guy is a legend. He's one of the four Japanese "Dinocassettes". Only released in Japan in 1987, they never made it onto the show, and are generally extremely hard to track down. They're Dial, Zaur, Graphy and Noise, though I'm not sure which of the four that is there.

    Welcome aboard, by the way.

    ...well...that's just prime...My employer, and their STUPID internet system, has blocked www.tfu.info . I'll catch it at home.

    Yeah, I'd forgotten how cool these things were. My favorite is (now a very clean) Sidetrack. I think I'll keep him.

    I love the dinocassettes, especially the pterodactyl guy... too bad I can never find any good pics of them.

    Welcome to the boards, those little Micromasters were cool.
    Tfu.infois (has been for a long time) a terrific resource for the TF's
