They are so G1 cartoon accurate, does that make these "Action Masterpiece" figures?
But the Action Masters had more possibility (granted just knee joints) and had their partners.
I'm just riffing on the current trend of super toon accuracy "to a fault" of the MP line.

They are kind of like less articulated, better painted action masters.

I think I'll pass, but they are kind of an interesting thing to have out there in the universe.

Not yet.

This isn't action masters. Action masters were more articulated and came with a transforming component so there was still a Transformers element.

This line is not banking on action master nostalgia (at least not purposefully) instead it's about imposing the limited 5 articulation points of the first star wars Kenner figures from the 70s to all franchises. So it's even more retro.

I like them, they're cute.... but they're not $18 cute. I think if I saw them on clearance for $8 I might buy one, but at that price I can get a deluxe fig, man.

If S7 hadnt increased the price i'd be getting some but going from $13 (the price reactions were a few months ago) to $18 is a deal breaker. I am on SSI and can not convince myself to spend that much on a 5 POA figure thats 4 inches.

I'll be in a minority in that action masters were some of my favourite transformers (first figures I had as a kid) and I've always wanted reissues in better colours, or new characters made in the same style. These really should be something I want to buy, but somehow they manage to miss the mark. Close but no cigar. Won't be buying them but I hope they are successful.

Wow that is somehow both shocking and unsurprising at the same time. I'm also shocked that FYE is still open!

There is a bit of novelty to the small size though. Did ya buy it?

No, I could not justify $20 for it.

The one of these that I may be interested in is Jazz. But that size, geez, I thought they would have been bigger

Well the ReAction line's schtick is 3.75" figures. The price does seem pretty steep though. I've never really paid much attention to the line before, so I'm not sure what the other figures sold for. Seen several at Target over the years and never once looked at the price. :lol:

I think they are usually around $15, but it's FYE so it's always got a bit of a markup

I have all these on preorder. They look great!

That Devy looks cool... BBTS has a preorder for 2 Devy's (large and regular), I'm guessing this is the large sized up from the regular?

I still want the large translucent purple Megatron, but haven't pulled the trigger on it yet.

New Super7 Transformers ReAction Figures Revealed - Grimlock, Skyfire, Rumble, Shrapnel

PostPosted: Fri Mar 20, 2020 8:33 pm

Thanks to their own Twitter page, we have news that the next wave of Super7 ReAction figures is due out soon, and we get a nice look at the next 4 figures to make up that wave. The new wave consists of Dinobot Legend and Leader Grimlock, the insecticon Shrapnel, the little blue cassette Rumble, and the large Autobot jet Skyfire!

The Super7 ReAction figures are small 3.75" figures that feature a very 1980's cartoony look and aesthetic, with very limited articulation. They have included a fairly decent cast so far that includes the likes of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and after the recent Toy Fairs are set to include even more cast members such as Alpha Trion and Devastator.

Check out the image shared by Super7 below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

:-x Grimlock's sword is wrong, it should be silver. These are cartoon-based, and in the cartoon the Dinobots' swords are silver like they were supposed to be before the change to soft plastic.

I'm trying to remember when the Dinobots used their swords in the G1 cartoon. Which episode was it again?

Well, only Grimlock and Snarl were shown to use theirs, but both were shown to be silver. Snarl used his in almost every episode he featured in, where he fired lasers from its tip. Grimlock used his in "Madman's Paradise" to swat away boulders.

Wow. I totally forgot about that (or didn't realize that). Thank you for letting me know.

Despite its usage, I would still think the red sword is far more well known than the minor usages of "silver" swords by Dinobots in the cartoon. Personally, I'm glad they used the red sword. I feel the red swords are far more iconic to the Dinobots than the silver swords like the packaging artwork.

Well, I think they're idiots for using red here because these are obviously supposed to reflect the cartoon.

I wish the red swords weren't so iconic... I've always felt it looked bland compared to the shining silver... And Hasbro obviously wanted the swords to be silver (as with the Diaclone toys), judging by the packaging artwork, the cartoon, and the commercials. The swords (and Swoop's missiles and jaw, and Slag's horns) were only red because toy safety laws forced them to be cast in soft plastic, which couldn't be vacuum-metallized. And the bloody Marvel colorists just had to go based off the toys, and everybody since copied them...

Stupid Marvel... Although to be fair, also stupid BS&P. The Dinobots would probably have all used their swords in the cartoon, and more often, if the BS&P had been more lenient about swords in the '80s. But no.

Surprised Grimlock's sword color in the thing being discussed here, instead of the usual character and his relation to what color he should be...........

Ah, but see... 1. There is no question that in the cartoon, Rumble was the name attached to that color scheme and 2. so long as both color schemes are correctly portrayed it scarcely matters which scheme is packaged with which name :P I just hope that when they get to his twin, they use actually black rather than substituting dark blue.

I think these are what all the Masterpieces made after MP-10 look like...can we even call them "Masterpieces" anymore at this point? :-? Right now the Studio Series is taking over & for a whole lot less $$$.

Fixed that for you. Although even then, Blackarachnia and Tigatron haven't gotten the Roger Rabbit treatment.
