    I want to ask who buys this crap...but I need to remember that one man's trash is often someone else's treasure.

    As a Masters of the Universe fan, I can’t recommend anyone to buy Super 7 products. Their Masters of the Universe Classics figures are abysmal. So bad that I quit collecting MOTUC. As far as I’m concerned, Masters of the Universe is dead until Mattel gives us something new. I wouldn’t expect their Transformers products to be any better.

    I've seen the garbage that they try to pass to motu fans, no clue how they stay in business. Hopefully they go under quickly.

    Aren't the point of the Super 7 Toys that they are supposed to look like they were made in the 80's?

    Nnnnn, but the Lundgren and Langella figures they've got coming look so tempting!

    The issue is the four horsemen make great prototypes. The super7 send them to a bootleg quality factory and we get low quality translations of high end sculpts

    Can that legally be considered false advertising? We're indeed getting action figures of Lundgren and Langella, but if the final product comes out and it's not what's shown, and if there's no disclaimer on product photos, can that hold up in a court of law?

    Agreed. They look great. But what you are seeing are the prototypes done by the 4 Horseman. They do amazing work. But the factory will butcher them. The paint detail will be way off. The plastic looks waxy and almost transparent. The plastic quality itself is terrible. Figures are prone to breakage.

    I like these transformers figures and when I get the chance, I will buy them... I been collecting Super 7 Motu figures and I highly recommend their quality and overall design... I always wanted a Megatron that looks like the cartoon character... Not counting the master piece versions...

    Optimus and Megatron... You'd think that if someone (in 2019) was going to create TF action figures with no transformation, that would at least free them up to get the proportions right. Or even close to right.

    These are closer to Action Master proportions. Was that the intent? (and if so, why?)

    Some of the complaints about the latest wave of 4H's Advent of Decay figs would make a person believe that they aren't doing any better than Super7 with factory choices…hmm I guess Super7 and 4H could be using the same factory ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    How much articulation do these actually have. Like 10 points or 11, which is just the basics these days.

    It seems like they licensed the concept art, not the movie or the actor licenses. We’ll see.

    I asked that same "Why" for the Action Masters concept back in 1990.
    Still do, today.
