I passed on the TFs but picked up a 3-pack of the Joes. I think they will be a decent scale alongside Generations figures. There's also a 6-pack of Power Rangers for just under $40.

World's Smallest Transformers from Super Impulse Found at Target

Postby william-james88 » Sun Mar 08, 2020 4:23 pm

While these were found earlier in the week, no one contacted us and we learnt it much later. But we still wanted to let everyone know just in case. These are non transforming minifigures from the company Super Impulse, which stand 1.25 inches tall. Tiny! They are also surprisingly well painted for such tiny figures.

These rae in no way related to the previous use of the words World's Smallest which was a first party line while these are licnesed products.

They were found at Target, in the Easter section for $4.99 each. Transformers Fan Rocky posted his finding on Facebook.

These might make nice companions for H-Lab Unicron.

I'd say the Smallest Transforming Transformers (and their unofficial brethren) would be better. Unless there's going to be a dino-mode Grimlock in this line...

Yeah a WST revival would be fun. Some creative little designs in that line, and yeah the 3P followups were also a blast

The size I'm fine with, but looking at the rest of the World's Smallest line I really wish these were based on the original toys instead. Everything else in the line are tiny remakes of toys, but these don't have that same charm to them. Check out the Smallest G.I.Joes.

Image

They're a pretty close proximity to the original toys, but the Transformers aren't based on any previous toys.

Image

They'll look good with Titans at least so there's that. Unicron? Maybe if they do some movie characters, I'd be down for Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge.

Honestly, Legion-class versions would suffice for looking good with Titans (Cityformer Titans, anyway). These are too small to look good with Titans IMO.

Do you know why I specified them as better companions for HasLab Unicron?

See, when I think cityformers I'm thinking of something sprawling and a mile tall. I look at the little windows on them and imagine normal sized Transformers looking out of them. I don't really think of Titan Metroplex and the like as being in scale with the rest of the toy line.

Less like this:

And more like this:

The World's Smallest figures are closer to my ideal.

All that empty packaging space makes me think they could have done a multipack with these.

That's how all of the "World's Smallest" work, they have a standardized packaging design where the empty space makes the toy itself appear even smaller.
