Ok, those are pretty awesome! I love the Marvel versions. Nice trinkets to display alongside my larger figures!

Oh, I thought this was going to be the figures from the next series. Yeah, those are like those cutesy, kiddy, Star Wars figures. Don't care.

I wonder if this whole line will be based on G1.

action masters all over again
I do love the g1 cartoon look though
I think those would look better in the chess set than what they showed

Regardless of the fact that they're Action Masters for toddlers it's good news to see that more G1-based products are still coming out of Hasbro.

Posted by tech348 on February 21st, 2007 @ 9:49pm CST
I think this will be good. These toys are based on G1. What if there is something more to this? Maybe re-issues again. I think if Hasbro sees a good response it will be good for the collector.

I too thought this was from the new series. These are pretty stupid and even seem like poor excuses for toys for preschoolers. Thats practically money in the bank. Aren't the 3 inch titaniums filling the pointless TF form of Toys already? At least they are respectable. Forgive me if this is pointless I am drinking.

I'll get these over the 3inch Titaniums, of Attaklicks(?see I don't even care enough to know how to spell it?) anyday.

These are going right on the dashboard of my car!

I actually do like this line. The Star Wars and Marvel line are sweet.

I like these. Helps hook younger addicts...er fans. I'll probally pick these up for something.

It's gonna be a good year for TF.

Well, I hate to say it, but I was kind of impressed by the Star Wars line, in fact, I own the X-wing that comes with Luke & Artoo... I like the chibi-fied characters, and will probably pick up a few (if not all) of these guys...

And I second Caelus' reply, my wife will have the Bumblebee as soon as I see him...

Sometimes I don't understand TF fans. Everyone loves Superdeformed Transformers, but when Hasbro makes figures in the same vain, everyone's like "Those are dumb Action Masters! Waaah!"

I loved the Star Wars line, but I never got around to buying them. I smiled at the Marvel version, but didn't care quite enough. I will be buying the Transformers line, though. I've always loved PVC collectables, and this is the closest thing I've gotten for Transformers. Desk ornamentation.

Bumblebee has creepy eyes...

Wonderful. More non-transforming crap.

They'll make neat decorations but thats about it. I'm not impressed with the toys but they're giving us the characters we love in G1 form. I think that merrits a few more little pvc guys cluttering up my shelves.

Cute and nicely sculpted, and all in all pretty nice for mini-figs. I may pick up a couple...

Now if they made transforming ones, I'd be alll over it.

Whaaaa....??? It's been a while since I've dug-out my old Actionmasters (I don't even know where they are and don't really care) so someone correct me if I'm wrong, but as I remember them they didn't have elbow or knee articulation. Just a cut joint at the neck and pin-mounted cut-joints at the shoulders and knees, like these do (but without the pins)... except these are pre-posed instead of perpetually standing at attention.

Also, they sure as hell weren't 'geared towards adults'. They were even less complex and more kiddiefied than earlier G1 Transformers.

EDIT: Whoops, they had hinge knees too. But still... the articulation sucked compared to G1 Joe.

I dig these. Seriously, I do. And, it is nice to see Shockwave get his name back as oppose to that Shockblast crap.

Posted by Nemesis Cyberplex on February 22nd, 2007 @ 4:51am CST
I concur about the fans crying "Waah! Actionmasters Suxx0rs!!!111!!1!" stuff. The actionmaster series wasn't even part of the main TF line....they were fun little extras designed after TFs that already had transformable versions for years, except for a couple of characters like Rad. & from the few I own, they seem to be more geared towards banging them together to help kiddies simulate a TF battle without actually destroying their older versions that would fall apart by looking at it wrong. I know my bro & I played with his origninal Soundwave enough that it can't even stand upright anymore on its own, but the actionmaster Soundwave I own seems like it has an equal amount of wear & tear & can still stand up & is mostly still functional.

& as far as these are concerned....they're cute, they're durable, they're cheap, & they look like they'd be fun to play with. I'd say they serve their purpose in every way, & I would love to get every one.

What? Action Masters *were* the TF line in 1990 and '91 (except in the EU, where they were out alongside the Classics reissues- which actually makes good marketing sense. From hasbro Europe no less!).

EDIT: Whoops. Forgot about the year 2 Micromasters. Sorry Nem- though my point stands about AMs. They were as much of a main line as Pretenders or Micromasters, with dozens of items across multiple price points. They blew, but they were there nonetheless. Mind you, without AMs we would never have experienced the grandeur of the ultimate TF colour scheme- Action Master Thundercracker.

Anyway, these chaps are not my thing but I fully realise that people who like wee SD figures to put on their desks or collect on a shelf will be over the moon with these. If the rate at which the SW ones sell is any indication they'll be huge, and fair play to Hasbro for putting them out. All I ask is for Ark and/or Nemesis playsets like the Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon and X-wing sets.

Sideshow- I don't think a shortage of transforming figures is going to be an issue this summer, somehow. In fact, there have already been a few cries of "how the hell am I going to afford all this?" from the figures that have been listed so far. And that's just the first couple of waves!
