    Came across this from a GI Joe facebook post and it shows this company is going to do Transformers. They remind me of some of the Herocross TLK figures. Can anyone give any info on this? Looks like they'll be at Toyfair this weekend.

    Too bad they’re movie designs.

    Their Joes look much nicer.

    I do like the GI Joe's. Probably grab those actually as there isn't much other GI Joe stuff to get. I'm curious to see what they'll show this weekend.

    I'm more impressed that this company scored these licenses from Hasbro while simultaneously hawking their "Totally not a ripoff of MLP I swear!" 'Filly' line. :)

    Eh. They're okay. I'm tired of the ginormous chibi-heads.

    Agreed. I've never been able to understand the fixation on big head/small body novelty toys. It's...vexing.
