Anyone else bothered by the fact that the My Little Pony toys seem to look way better, especially where being show-accurate is concerned? I realize we're talkin' Happy Meals here, but if they ain't gonna transform you'd think they could get the looks right, or at least use the right colors in the right places. #-o

It's a matter of popularity really. MLP is popular for "girls" toys, so they get a lot of cash thrown at them. Really they should have done Rescue Bots instead of RID, I feel like those would be more appreciated.

if in fact they did transform they would have looked far worse as robots these look ok as robots even though they cant change so at least there is that going for them
but wish they would bring back the transforming big mac drink and fries that we had so long ago ;)

I think people either forget or don't know about the McDonald's Beast Machines Jetstorm, Tankor, & Thrust that transformed, and were more show accurate than the official mainline figures themselves.

I looked up some of the beast machines and it lead me to these, I am amazed. I wish the RiD toys were this good.

Transformers RID Joining Jurassic Park, Barbie and More in Multi Brand Happy Meal Holiday Train Set

Postby william-james88 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:28 pm

It's not everyday you get cross promotion of this level. For this holiday season, McDonalds has put together a twelve part connecting train set where the wagons showcase different brands. The train set is called the Holiday Express and here are some of the brands showcased on the wagons:

Transformers Robots in Disguise (with Bumblebee in Robot Mode peeking above the wagon)
Sing
Jurassic Park
Hot Wheels
Minions
My Little Poney
The Life of Secret Pets
Despicable Me
Barbie

Each Happy Meal will come with one train part that can be connected to the others to form a twelve part train once fully collected. It appears that each wagon will have a particular feature activated when the train is rolled on the floor. This promotion will start in December for the US and it is unknown if it will be appearing in other countries at the same time.

Here is an image of the set.

That's quite the variety, but it only represents three companies: Hasbro, Mattel, and Universal Studios (with Illumination Studios).

What about McDonald'a themselves? (Their creepy mascot is in the engine.) For that matter, I'm not sure who the animals on the ferris wheel car belong to, and the caboose doesn't seem to have anything at all.
They race to bury everything except for what they find on the bottom.

I thought the McDonald's one was a little obvious since it's their toy. ;)

I think the animals are from Littlest Pet Shop, looks like them, also Hasbro's. They've had a Happy Meal before.
