TFW2005 member Sycia has reportedly found a Gachapon vending machine with small "Danglers" based on the characters from the Transformers Movie. These small figures features vehicle modes hidden inside robot modes, each vehicle has a string that can be used to tie the figure to backpacks, cell phones etc.

According to the website of the toy's manufacturers, Tomy Yujin, these figures are no longer available, but have reportedly been released to over 15000 retail chains like movie theatres, grocery stores, Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Toys R Us stores, so some of these may still be out there.

Check the Transformers page on the Tomy Yujin website by clicking here.

For more images of the toys, including instruction manual as well as a look at how the vehicle mode is hidden inside the robot, click here

I know the movie toys were popular, but isn't this a bit late? Especially since everything else is gearing towards Animated now?

No love for Barricade i see. If there was a Barricade then i would look for these but since theres not i have no incentive. But then again these may be one of the "Rare" items people are looking for in the future.

If I saw them in a gumball machine, I'd cough up some change.

I got these on eBay a few weeks ago, like $7 shipped. They're pretty cool, but the colors are off on a couple, noteably Ironhide and Prime.

The outer shell is almost like a gummy-type material, very soft and pliable. The little alt mode within is cute, would prob. go nicely w/ your Metroplex, Fortress Maximus, etc. My mini-KO Fort Max looks cool w/ them.

I've just seen these in the Philippines for about 50PHP (Pesos) or about $1. My Fiancee is sending me a set in a couple of weeks...

picked up Jazz today from a vending machine. These things are weird. You squeeze the robot and it poops out a car. The paperwork inside the capsule says wave 1 so maybe Wave 2 will have Barricade in it.

Animated line... oh man!... I have to say it now that you bring the subject; but they want to punish all kids with C- and below, the idea is to give each kid world wide an animated toy for a C- or its equivalent, and for D- or less, your punishment is to play with the freaking Animated toy...
