Someone needs to tell Super7 that they've got Frenzy labeled wrong.
If Rumble can't be blue, then Ironhide rides a sled and has no head.
These are clearly based on the Cartoon designs and not the toy ones, and in the cartoon the blue one was named rumble. On the other hand if they were based on the toy designs you’d be completely correct.
I'd meet you halfway on that one. Ironhide should have the MARB.
I'm never in favor of the cartoon's most persistent animation error being perpetuated. Even the cartoon bible referred to Rumble as the red robot. Don't know why they messed it up in the actual animation.
I just don’t get the allure of vinyl toy collectibles. Just don’t.
it’s not like they’re ever cheap or particularly detailed. Maybe if they were both those I might get it somewhat as a desk thing, but they never are. So odd.
I think the figures card art looks better than the figure themselves, Grimlock especially
If these were like $5 each at dollar general I\'d bite. But at like $20 each I just don\'t see how they have a large market for them?
I don\'t get the appeal, but I\'m sure someone would enjoy these $20 vinyl things with mediocre detail?
$20? Rotflmao. Sorry I saw this thread. Pfft lolololol
For $5-$6 you can get actual transforming figures at Family Dollar.
I still think these are waaay over priced. I\'ll wait. I\'ve seen some Super 7 figures at a Tuesday Morning for less than half this price. Currently, there are some \"blind\" bag vinyl figures being sold at the Dollar Tree that look better than these. Plus they also carry the key chains too. You can get the whole set, keychains and vinyl figures for about half the price of one of these Super 7 figure.
they look pretty decent but i wouldn\'t say they are worth the price i mean who in their right mines would pay 20 bucks for barely posable non-transformable figures I mean come on Hastak we aren\'t that dumb

If you've never handled a Super 7 ReAction figure, you might be surprised at the quality of material. Blows anything from the dollar store away. They are definitely overpriced for what they are, but they aren't crap and they sell very well at that price. They're actually kind of heavy.
In making vintage toys, I wish they could have resurrected the action masters line instead of creating these.
Habro is not creating these theyre just licensing them
These could have been great with just a little more articulation. Instead, they look like they are being lined up against a firing squad. #missedopportunity
These are pretty wicked, man. I would have loved these back in the 80s...before it was conceivable that a Transformer could have more than 5 POA, lol.
How bis are they? I still don\'t habe an Alpha Trion.
For whatever it's worth: I agree that $18 is too much, but to be fair, it's not Hasbro/Takara that is making and selling these. Super7 is licensing them from Hasbro. That means that on top of all the costs Super7 has for design, manufacture, packaging and distribution, they also have to pay Hasbro a cut.
In addition to that, you have to factor in the economics of scale. Super7 is a smaller company and they are making these in smaller numbers than anything Hasbro would make. The smaller the run, the higher the costs. If Hasbro was making and selling these in Target, Walmart etc., they would be cheaper.
