    Those appear to be from the Encore line as stated in the description for Optimus Prime. You can find them cheaper if you shop around some of the online stores (look at some of the site sponsors).

    All 3 items says in the description "This 6 inch Transformer xxxxxxx PVC figure in the alternate mode as a xxxxxxx."

    To my knowledge, the encore releases are not made out of PVC. They may be some kind of figurines.

    I'm 110% sure they're just Encore reissues listed by a fairly uneducated third party. Nothing to see there.

    Anything called a "thrustmaster" is awesome.

    The description is not very clear and looking at the brand "Thrustmaster" kind of threw me off.
