    I came across this listing while looking for other Super Impulse products, and I hadn't heard about it anywhere else that I know of.

    WORLDS COOLEST TRANSFORMERS Collectibles on DeepDiscount

    The "World's Coolest" line seems to generally be miniaturized and functioning versions of classic toys, so possibly this is a return of the Smallest Transforming Transformers line- or something similar?

    Maybe this is already known (google search brought nothing else up), or maybe it's a mistake. The listing seems to indicate they are up for release next month, however.

    Woah, I'd totally be down for something like this. Always wanted Smallest Transforming Transformers Soundwave.

    A welcome return. WST's are quite an intresting niche, and I'd be intrested in seeing what they're gonna do now.
    Maybe even smaller figures?

    I hope that they finally make a WST Rodimus.

    Interesting find. We might find out more about this at the upcoming SDCC next month.

    While WST was a Takara only project, with the brand unification this could very well be some kind of continuation of that.

    I fucking love me some WST so I'd be very happy if that were the case.

    Edit: here's more info on the World's Coolest line

    World's Coolest Retro Toys and Electronics from Super Impulse

    All releases so far seem to be keychains, so we might get something more akin to the minibot keychains we saw in the early 2000s.

    Only acceptable if they take STT Ravage and make him a World's Coolest version in scale to himself. A transforming Ravage that fits on the head of a pin.

    Anyone expecting a full toyline should manage their expectations, this is very likely to be a single release.

    As has been pointed out, the "World's Coolest" brand seems to be keychain-based (unlike the same company's "World's Smallest" brand), and not necessarily that small. The World's Coolest Beyblades, for instance, are full-size Beyblades, just with a keychain attached.

    It honestly wouldn't surprise me if this was just one of the Mini Vehicles keychains re-released. Although that being said, HasTak generally don't allow licensees these days to make transforming figures, so this might not even be something that transforms!

    I can't believe they finally made a figure of Product Name and it's in the crappy non-transforming line.

    So you buy Deluxe-scaled packaging to get something half the size of a PVC?

    Looks like you have a second chance to get them. :thumb 

    They have stuff like this at Cracker Barrel, and something Wal-Mart, I'm never been every impressed with any of it.
