These will go great with the new Unicron, but I'm not interested in anything over $5 a piece.
I\'m sure someone has already said it, but these look just like the dollar tree figures. Idk the size difference, but it\'s the same to me.
Theyre $1 each at dollar tree, the only difference is that they dont have the special packaging and are in bags
Hasbro has some sort of clause for its licensees of the Transformers IP where whatever product they make can’t transform. I get why that is; look what happened with Go-Bots, but for this and things like it, surely exceptions can be made, especially when the WST molds exist or can be reverse-engineered.
Because nobody with normal human hands would not be capable to transform such micro figures?
These are available at Dollar tree for $1 each. Don't pay this price...
I mean, we do already have WST Transformers to fill that void (even if theyre bloody hard to find) but i dont disagree. I think the biggest point is the whole package in a package thing? like youre supposed to display a tiny mint on card figure somewhere in your collection, but that leads me to my next point. What is that inner packaging?? like you said the point is to recreate a classic toy in micro scale. Even if they dont transform and they want to do this tiny on card packaging, why does it look so generic and nondescript? give us some g1 packaging if thats the point guys...
Technically they are a tiny bit smaller than the dollar tree transformers (Which you can still buy by the case btw https://www.dollartree.com/transformers-toy-figurines-2x0375x075-in/297419 )
They obviously come from the same original tool design.. those creepy hands
Damn, if I wanted more of them this would be the move, but if anyone bought a case of them and just wants to sell me Bumblebee I'm super down
I actually saw these things a few months ago in a farm supply and animal feed store of all places. They seemed really expensive for what they was though, so I passed on them.
Anyways I did go on to get the dollar tree set and there is a few differences... though not enough to justify the cost IMHO.
the Impulse ones are slightly smaller, are advertised to have 3 points of articulation, have additional paint applications, and come with a display stand. Buuut, the impulse series only has Prime, Starscream, and Bee, where the dollar tree also has soundwave, megatron, and grimlock. Also the Impulse prime does not have smokestacks where the Dollar Tree one does.
Anyways what I find most interesting is that these all seem to use a generic 3d model hasbro passes around for use with promotional stuff.
These arent the dollar tree ones, more like the same WSTs Target puts on their endcap.
Hope to see these there soon.
So this site has the G.I.Joes: Roadblock, Duke, and Snake Eyes.
These figures may be of interest a couple of different ways.
The Joes are the same size as Titanmasters, making them a display option with most modern TFs.
The TFs meanwhile are a decent size to be held as a toy by Marvel Legends or the leaked 6 inch G.I.Joes. Because 6 inch Joes who play with Transformers is a thing you can do.
anyone got a picture of one of these guys with wst megatron? or any wst at least?
It’s too bad the joes don’t have leg articulations so they could seat inside the driver seats on the titan master figures. I’ve wanted a joe vs Tfs crossover line for about 35 years now.
It’s been pointed out that a licensing clause prohibits a transforming figure, but it could have literally just been the mould on the left but slightly smaller and it would qualify as “world’s smallest”.
Aren't the wst much smaller?
About 60% as big.
Get WST Bumblebee to pair with the $1 figures.
I just realized the Joes will self-scale with 6 inch Joes more or less.
Meaning that a cosplayer could dress as Duke and hold a 6 inch Duke holding a WS Duke.
Is it called Super Impulse because it would have to be a super impulse buy that you will must likely regret later?
what\'s with their fingers?
Give me alt modes!
I need them to sit in front of the figs, and then also as cool as hell board game pieces!
