    Damn, these look awful. I thought McFarlane Toys were supposed to be good!

    They look okay to me. Simple and basic yes, but not terrible. I’ve certainly seen a lot worse. I wouldn’t pay full price though, but I’d may be interested if they were on clearance.

    I could be into these. I see the appeal in little non transforming but with some limited posability figures.

    Coupled with a comic, they look like they could be really neat battle packs for a kid to take around with them.

    I'll only pick these up if I see them at Ross, but I do see the appeal.

    Just saw these in GameStop here in Jersey. Nah, not worth it.

    Oh yeah these look cool. Just two little guys and two comics, a nice little basic bundle that\'ll look good hanging on my wall next to those worlds smallest transformers.

    Not knocking these at all, I have a set due to be delivered Tuesday, but there is this $15ish book that comes with decent non-articulated IDW/Evergreen inspired figs. I've bought several and give them as gifts and have a set populating some citybots. they are a little bit larger than the JADA Nanofigs.

    The book comes with them, you get the bot modes and the vehicle modes.

    This is exactly the kind of thing that I would never bother to order online, but would absolutely buy on impulse if I saw in store. Reminds me just how much companies like Hasbro seem to currently underestimate the spending power of physical locations.

    As I like to point out, I'm sure Hasbro would love to be in those locations. But they don't decide what to ship. The retailers are in control of a lot of what we see and what Hasbro can afford to make.

    It's always a best practice to post potential first sightings in the actual news area. That's the easiest way for them to get seen.

    I did.

    McFarlane Toys and Hasbro Partnership

    But there are two threads about the Page Punchers. I posted in the first one about the partnership.
