Do all the ones with mouths look disturbing to anyone else? The other 3 ended up cute, at least.

And since it says "weapons" plural, and Grimlock has both his sword and double-barreled gun, shouldn't Screamer and Thundercracker each have 2 guns?

I want to say they're okay for what they are, but taking superdeformity to this extreme just makes me appreciate those MyClone block figures even more. Is BBTS importing these, or might they show up in western markets?

Must say I rather like the Grimlock, and also the Soundwave-and something about Grimlock's head tells me it'd work pretty well if used for a custom figure, but hell I don't do any customising so what would I know :P

Unthinkable. Even now, almost 30 years later, they STILL can't get Soundwave's visor or Grimlock's eye color right.
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

They did get it right, as per the original toys. The Autobots having blue eyes, the Decepticons red eyes thing was cartoon only. ;)

Agreed: as a comic loyalist, I have to say that Grimlock looks the most correct out of the whole bunch. Soundwave's eyes being kind of separate looks a little odd, but I could easily see either of the two answering letters via Furman's pen. *puttup*

very cute. lol

but why the hell is thundercracker 2 dollars less and bumblebee 5 dollars less than the rest? they are all the exact same size and things, they should be the same price.

and every mini vinyl figure i see like these are always 9.99 so why even ask 14.99 for the others?

oh and if thats thundercracker, why is he colored black and purple like skywarp? lol

Precisely. In the cartoon, Grimlock had blue eyes and Soundwave had a red visor. It's unthinkable that they still aren't getting this almost 30 years later.

Yes but they're only "not getting it" if they were trying to get the looks of the cartoon, if they were trying to make them look like the old toys, they did get it right :p

Cool stuff! Except for the mouths on the non-faceplate characters. Makes the characters look confused.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!
