    I was looking at some toy fair pics and noticed this

    It looks like Jazwares (Street Fighter, Megaman, and Mortal Kombat Figures) is bringing them over.

    The Big Lots here is kinda hit and miss. Every once in a while you manage to find some nice KOs though.

    :peoples: 

    That looks like the kind of low-rent item WM might try to push (coughCorpscough). Difference being these look to be actually worth picking up.

    I can't bring myself to buy these. Alternators are already almost too big. If these were Alternator size (1/24 instead of 1/18), I'd get them, but I only have so much space.

    That's mostly what I meant. Joes don't usually fit in your average diecast 1:18 car anyway...but they look quite to scale standing next to them. If these Alt wannabes are really 1:18 in car mode,then hopefully the Joe:'bot size ratio is just as good. May be about as close as we get to a TF/Joe toy crossover.

    Damn, now I'm all excited about these. Gimmegimme.

    I'd bet biglots or maybe KBs since thats usely the places that have Jazzwares SFs, definitly biglots would prolly be the spot for em, they seem to always have the SF and MM figs, and have had the MK figs.

    I just wonder about the Trigun figs there are gonna do, i hope they show up in biglots hehe.

    Hell if I was a manufacturer I would rather have Big-Lots carry my stuff than KB and K-Mart, atleast Big-Lots has some stores
