    The core class figures wouldn't be able to have those shoes fit them. Think about it, the feet of various core class figures would not fit into where the fingers will go. It would be impossible to fit them onto the figures, themselves, and with how the shoes are shaped, that wouldn't work.

    I'm still holding out hope for MOTU x transformers in the vein of the really good MOTU x TMNT line.

    Proper action master updates? Pretenders with a hollow torso big enough for minicon/micromaster? "Minicon Master He-Man" wearing armour with minicon ports? There's a ton you could do with it.

    Can any Hot Wheels/Mattel customers here tell us what kind of price range we should expect from a "three dollar-sign" product?

    Looking at Mattel Creations most of their premium cars are in the $30 range, so hopefully something around there.

    I just used the link @ZipperMan29x posted and I found the listing. I had to scroll down a bit on my phone but it's there.

    I’d kill for proper Action Masters (in-scale with Generations stuff, ofc)

    @Black Convoy I don’t think that ‘This Tuesday’ and ‘May 21st’ work together.

    This is such a bummer of a crossover, it had a ton of potential but it’s going the wrong way. Don’t make transformers alt mode into Hotwheels, make Hotwheels cars into Transformers.

    Mattel Creations is the Hasbro Pulse equivalent. I believe Shopify manages fulfillment for both sites. Hot Wheels Collectors is a sub-brand of Mattel Creations, along with Barbie Collectors and MotU. Each of those have their own landing pages, which is a little more robust than Pulse's brand categories. I believe Mattel offered brand-specific subscription services at one point that were comparable to Pulse Premium, but I'm not sure.
