    Judging by the size of that guys hand, these look substantially bigger than Legends. Anyone get a good eye on the price in pesos in the Philippines?

    I agree with almost everything you said, but there's no way this hollow thin brittle plastic toys are good for kids. It's unbelievable how almost every toy now that isn't for pre-school is hollow thin garbage, I still have some of my childhood toys and they're thick and soild as I remember. I can't stand that stupid cycle of excuse by American toy companies saying kids don't play anymore with toys and then making those lousy things no one wants.

    They go for Php 300 each or around $6 a figure.

    Hey, any chance you can get me a photo of the barcodes (the official Hasbro ones printed on the packaging, not the stickers added by the stores)?

    EDIT: Scrap that, got those. Thanks anyways!

    "All four figures have 3 to 6 step Transformation similar to McDonald’s Happy Meal Transformers figures of the Animated era."

    I think someone hasn't played with Animated Happy Meal toys in quite some time.

    I wish I had never gotten the Starscream from that promotion, he makes the Evergreen figure look like a Masterpiece.

    If I recall correctly: Optimus Prime had 4 steps, Megatron had 5 steps, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Starscream and Lugnut had 3 steps each. So I'm right, I guess. :D

    Might hang these on the tree.  Would make decent ornaments.

    I'll be honest with you. I think the Happy Meal toy might have better plastic.

    No, your eyes are not deceiving you, and there's nothing wrong with the camera either. The cardbacks are really grayscaled.

    Gotta save 4 cents on that printer ink!! If they save 5 they'll make the plastic a micron thicker!

    That's literally their intended purpose. Though, mainly for overseas markets, they will surely show up here too.
