    Got my set yesterday. These guys are so friggin' adorable. I really can't believe they got this much articulation and so much transformation into a package this small. I thought Flipper was a masterpiece at this scale but these guys make him look like G1 engineering by comparison.

    beep, beep… :D 

    PXL_20210530_172316205.jpg

    broken record alert… after having these now for a day, i'm going to repeat the same reaction and what most have said after physically receiving these…

    dammit, how is it even POSSIBLE to get these that small?!?!?! :confused:  it's insanely RIDICULOUS what they accomplished at this minuscule size. o_O 

    no matter what complaints there are about the big clog feet, fake parts, too many panels, wrong scale/too small, over complex transformation, etc… you STILL have to give NA credit for these pint sized wonders as incredible engineering marvels! :eek:  hate any missteps and quirks all you want, they just do too damn much RIGHT with the insane size constraints that you have to give it to them and overlook any wrong there is. do i 100% love them? NO… but do i still LOVE them… a resounding HELL YES!

    i just CAN'T believe the alts are smaller than my penny racers i have. i CAN'T believe they are less than half the height of straxus and have transformation engineering, articulation, presence and charisma that nearly rivals it. and they definitely out shine any minibots that ever came before these two. i feel you really have to give them a chance and get them in hand to give them a fair shake before casting your final judgment.

    i've put factions on both chest, and i shaved down the handle on a Flipper KO blaster to fit the smaller hand on these molds so CJ can also now have a small pew-pew along with his 'zooka. but i do still want to hopefully paint in a rear window for BB alt mode.

    i fear i'm going to be a huge sucker for the inevitable flood of multiple decos NA is going to pump out to milk these molds within the next few weeks/months. :(

    Where did you get your decals for Cliffjumper? I still can't locate any that are the right size.

    Got mine today - nothing can prepare you for how microscopic these are. Never thought it was possible to have something this small be so complex.

    Yeah, all my fancy LED arrays and stuff in the world still don't produce an image as great as just putting a toy in the sun, lol.

    I love how, because of the way they're engineered, you can get the G1-toon look for the faction logos: one on the left side of the hood for vehicle mode, and one on the chest for robot mode, and they don't show up (at least not prominently) in the other mode! Brilliant.

    Nice. Will gladly get these, and really hope that a Glyph/Tapout set follows soon after.

    Hi, what Autobot symbols did You use?
    I have got some toyhax sticker sheets, but the smallest logos are like 6mm, which is too big.
    Also have a micromasters set, but they are chrome backed only.
