    Not super familiar with their products, but been keeping up with the exclusives that are gonna be at San Diego Comic Con this year, as it is the first year I'll be going in like..9 years, and my girlfriend's first ever.

    These were posted up on the unofficial SDCC blog and I figured I'd share them with you guys:

    Switch Transformers – 4.5″ Figures ($20)

    ...so did they ditch Loyal Subjects? They seemed like JaZzPrImE74 embodied as a company.

    Yeah, it really does look that way....unless Kid Logic sold their design to Bait. Hm, Bait is calling their figures as switch transformers, I wonder what they meant by that...maybe a swap able part with the other bots? In the meantime, it's a pass for me.

    Speaking of Kid Logic, such ashamed they're not continuing with their MN 6" line. Those numerous light ups feature on Prime, Starscream, Megatron, Devastator all look majestic! I just wish Kid Logic could've done my boy red-white-blue UMagnus first before they discontinued the MN 6" line.

    Photographing a chrome figure in a black room probably isn\'t the best idea...

    I never understand the point of these collectible figure lines unless they go all out and produce a vast range of characters from different lines. That\'s why Kreo was so enticing - suddenly we had a whole range of cutesified classic Transformers characters to collect.

    But, seriously, this is how exclusives should be done, a bunch of crap I don't care about.

    I'll be honest: the only ones I'd want are Megatron and Soundwave.

    I actually love this stuff and while I think Kids Logic did it better (and have all their releases), they aren't making them any more.

    So I'll happily buy these to help ensure more get made.

    Anyone know if these are available online anywhere?

    So this is why Kids Logic is no longer making anything. Hasbro propbably got a lower bid through Bait. Oh well, I am running out of room anyways.

    Ahh but did you ever think that maybe Hasbto is behind only licensing this look and not "their" look ;)
