Thanks to Seibertronian zodconvoy, we learned that Entertainment Earth has started pre-orders for the KidRobot Transformers vs. GI Joe Vinyl figures and merchandise. These are supposedly very similar to the stuff released by Loyal Subjects and relatively in the same style of it.

Loved this series. I've managed to avoid (most) Transformers blind box stuff, but I'm all about these. They're just too cool.

Shame the 7" Megatron doesn't have the T-Rex head.

If I had to guess, glow-in-the-dark Optimus. Totally just guessing though.

Man, I am ALL ABOUT that Wheeljack and Soundwave. I'm not usually a big proponent of non-transforming Transformers, but every once in a while something like this comes along and just makes me want.

I hope somebody points out to them that Megatron's cannon goes on his right arm and is not a sleeve for his mace.

I can't really tell from the pictures, but is that supposed to be battle-damage on Screamers face? It looks weird.

Yeah that is a little weird. Although I am somewhat partial to the mental image of Megatron using his arm cannon to launch giant spiked energy-balls at his enemies, now that I think about it... :lol:

Apologies, this was in our staff e-mail before you notified us. There was just a delay in getting it up due to availability at the time.

I have found it best to go to "Submit News" to get us to give you news credit and let us know. Unfortunately it also a first come, first serve basis and up to the discretion of the one posting news.

He had half his face blasted off by Snakeeyes as revenge for his face. He had it covered for the rest of the series.

I went ahead and gave you the news credit retroactively here. So it may take a moment to show up for you. Remember though in the future, do the "submit news" link I shared so we know in the future so there isn't another mix-up. Alrighty?

Thank you for answering that for me. There's a lot going on in that panel and almost all of it makes me wonder why someone would choose it for their model.
Does Megs have a Grimlock-head hand? Why?
Did he break a hip and dislocated a shoulder?
Is OP wearing a ten-story sewing gauge ruler?
Why does he have a Minecraft lightsaber?

I might be into the Shockwave figure or pin, mainly because it reminds me of the TFA version.

He has Grimlock's head because he killed Grimlock and took it as a trophy/weapon/crown. OP is using his trailer as a set of wings.

Seriously, the series was insanely awesome.

Final Product Images of KidRobot Transformers vs GI Joe Vinyl Figures, Enamel Pins and More

Postby william-james88 » Fri Nov 03, 2017 8:39 pm

We previously found art depicting upcoming merchandise based on the recent Transformers vs GI Joe comic. As it turns out, that art was more for the enamel pins since they are almost identical to the final product shots Kidrobot just posted on their website. They also posted a final product shot of a Cobra Commander figure, in two colours, based on the series along with an image of a skateboard deck featuring our favourite characters. They also posted every single image of the collector pins. These items can all be ordered on the KidRobot site. The pins are blind bagged and are priced at $5.99 USD and all of the mentioned items are available to order now. All of the product images can be found after the pin product description below.

Based on the critically acclaimed maxi-series comic by John Barber and Tom Scioli, Kidrobot and Hasbro have teamed up to bring two of the world’s most recognizable franchises to life with the Transformers vs. G.I.

Stylized as a homage to Jack Kirby and the silver age of comics, this blind box enamel pin series mashes up earth’s favorite action heroes and those futuristic aliens that are more than meets the eye. Get ready to jump down the rabbit hole and strap in for a wild sci-fi ride. Collect them all today and get ready for a battle for the ages!

More Final Images of KidRobot TF vs GI Joe Vinyl Figures

Postby Qwan » Sat Nov 11, 2017 1:06 am

Motto: "There's no such thing as a no-lose situation, but if you try your hardest, you'll lose the least."
Weapon: Hand-Mounted Lasers
Three months ago, we saw art of upcoming figures, pins and keychains based on the recent-ish (2014-2016) Transformers vs GI Joe comics. Earlier this month, there were final images of the pins, and two versions of a 7-inch Cobra Commander vinyl figure. And now, thanks to some preorder listings on ToyWiz, we have some more final images to share of the vinyl figures themselves!

The lineup of 18 figures includes Transformers regulars Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, Soundwave, Wheeljack and two different colorations of dino-mode Grimlock - all based to some degree or another on their appearances in the comic series. Also present from the GI Joe side of things are characters like Cobra Commander, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Destro, Baroness and more! The greenish Optimus Prime figure seen in the original images also makes a reappearance in a slightly transparent greenish-white hue, all but confirming that it will be a glow-in-the-dark variant.

And to round things off, from another ToyWiz preorder we also have final pictures of the 7-inch Megatron vinyl figure, seen from the front, back and in-package too! He appears much the same as the smaller Megatron seeing release with the others, aside from an actual chain for his energy mace, a removable Grimlock-head hand-puppet (which may or may not be removable on the smaller version) and perhaps a slightly more pouty expression.

All of these figures are set to release on December 2017, according to their ToyWiz listings. With that date fast approaching, which of these figures catch your eye the most? Are you more interested in the smaller Megatron or the 7" version - or both? Let us know your thoughts!

I normally wouldn't comment in this thread since I really didn't care for the comic series, so merch based on it isn't exactly anything that interests me, but...

Does anybody else get a Challenge of the GoBots vibe from Megatron's face here?
