    I do like the World\'s Smallest line, but I prefer the ones that recreate the functionality of the original toys. I have a full set of World\'s Smallest Hot Wheels because they did the extra work and even made tracks scaled to those cars. I\'d much rather have a repackaging of Smallest Transforming Transformers than what looks like static little statues of the characters.

    On the other hand, the G.I. Joe toys look good and I plan on picking them up. I do hope that they throw in a few accessories in the finished product (their 12 inch Joe recreation did come with some binoculars). If that line ever expands to include Joe Vehicles/Playsets, count me in for those as well.

    Nothing against this line, but boy was it dissapointing learning these weren't related to the previous line where they actually transform. That being said, if these have any articulation, i might get Starscream for shits and giggles. Also a bit confused by the pre-hasbro Bulging Muscles on those wee power rangers. I know this isn't coming From Hasbro, it just looks even weirder on figures this small, like the muscles didnt shrink as much as the rest of the body.

    $13!!!!!!

    Are they out of their minds????

    $7 for the novelty of it at a hobby store, maybe. $5 at Target or Walmart.

    When you can buy four fully articulated GI Joe knockoff figures at Walmart for $10, these are a joke.

    This is a disgrace to the original World\'s Smallest line.

    $13 is downright laughable

    $13?! You can get one of those working tiny arcade machines at Wamart for that price. They don't even transform, what value do these bring to the table? I'll tell you, absolutely nothing. These are a waste of money

    Talking about the price, when they were available in Peru via the special Coney Park game center promotion, you had to recharge their card for 30 soles or $9 bucks, then you got the figurine and then you could use the credit in the games.

    World's Smallest Actionmasters is a fun idea and all but I'm not too excited if all we're getting is the standard handful of characters, especially at that price.

    Looks like something neat to get but $13 is a bit much. Still, a full line of these would go great with a titan city bot.

    While I still like the prospect of using mini G.I. joes to scale with my Transformers, $13 seems a bit steep especially when I can buy Primemasters for $6. Oh well, will see how these hold up once reviews and more in hand images show up.

    A tiny set of the original 8\" MMPR figures - how can I say no to that?

    But they don't transform!


    Are these at least articulated?

    Bumblebee looks like he could crush starscream with one foot.

    I thought I might be on board but like people have been saying, $13 is too high. Maybe they haven't noticed, but there is a lot of Transformer product available out there. It's pretty easy to assess what sort of prices you can or should be charging. If a 5 1/2" fully poseable, fully transformable figure can be had for $15-20 at any given retail store, what justifies $13 for a non transforming, smaller figure? At least Amiibo's have alternate functionality.

    Though every time anyone complains about prices on these boards, the Justifier Squad bursts out to HasTak's rescue.
