This is one of those situations where I feel the word "Pass" is most appropriate.
28 Specs for $35 + S&H?
You can fit probably five or six of them on a sheet of photo paper, and that's what, $2 a sheet?
It's really not that bad. $1.25 a card. Look on eBay at the originals tech spec cards and you are spending anywhere from $0.20 to $4 more per card. Then these are enhanced quality, assumable to be printed on decent materials and laminated. I doubt they are making any money on this and they are saving you money on replacing the originals. Printing supplies are expensive, and making these yourself would be time consuming. Between man hours and supplies, I guarantee you it's cost you more in the end.
I've barely got a G1 collection, mostly consisting of reissues and a couple of vintage minibots so I've got no real interest in these, but they aren't a bad price at all.

To be honest, if I collected G1 figs, I probably would've jumped at this set of reproductions.
Heck, I don't collect G1, and I've still been tempted, would've been nice to put into a collector's binder of something

Considering I have a complete set of scanned tech specs, they're not exactly hard to find and print yourself.

They have also posted on their facebook page a preview of sorts of the 1986 set. These are some art corrections.

Of course printing them all out on good quality paper and cutting them out yourself may make you wish you'd just bought them to begin with.

It's one thing to remake their figures without using their names, but this is a flat out rip off of their idea...especially if the names and pictures are the same as the original toys art.
If Hasbro didn't act to stop the Seeker knock offs or the G1 accurate knock offs, I think these guys are fine.
Anyway, it's not like Hasbro reissues it's tech specs. These guys are not undercutting Hasbro in any way.
