    They\'re a little weird. Good looking yes, but it\'s like they slightly modified the G1 style of the characters just enough to make them different.

    Can you remove them and use the cases as displays for regular figures?

    There are larger FigPins but they'd still be a tight fit for most deluxe figures.

    How do you make G1 figures have the uncanny valley look?

    Anyone else notice that the legs are the same size as the torso on most of them?

    It's the perspective as if you were standing next to the actual size robot looking up at them. Seems they are using that as an effect to get that large robot feel.

    I gotta be honest, I just completely do not understand the appeal of Figpins whatsoever.

    So it’s a case with a 2D image inside? Why?

    There’s pics in the front page article here.

    What\'s a \"figpin\"?  The article above did not seem to explain what they were.

    Enamel pins, but quite large and not really designed to be worn, but displayed in a case.

    They are also individually numbered and app tracked or something like that to boost collectability

    only one I have as of swiping is the limited edition Spider-Man one wearing the Advanced Suit from the PS4 game. Put it on my track messenger bag and nearly lost the damn thing once when it fell off. I get the feeling the only way to keep it from popping off is glue...

    So yeah, they’re less functional than decorative.
