It's not every day (or month or year or decade) that Wendy's gets Transformers toys in their kids meals. So since I found some better images online, I thought it would be a good idea to share them. Especially since these are a rather new way to make a promotional Transformers toy. Animated was the lat time Hasbro allowed transforming toys to be sold by anyone other than them, so promotions had to find something else for gimmicks. We had launchers, wind up toys, even eye wear and now with Wendy's we have the idea of customizing a chibbie version of classic G1 characters and Windblade. Each figure comes with a plastic body where different cardboard limbs and faced can be attached. This can create different expressions and poses. Plus, craft people can make their own limbs for fun. The results can be quite cute. The promotion has hit the official website
. You can see more images below, coming from Coldiron
who posted them on TFW2005's message boards, and who also wrote this quick review:
Just picked them up. I always enjoy Wendy's crafty toys. I like the multiple arms, and faces. Sure the legs could be better if they were not skinny, but quality-wise and fun factor for the price they are pretty neat.
The paint is surprising good for a kids meal toy.
