Thanks to their own Twitter page, we have news that the next wave of Super7 ReAction figures is due out soon, and we get a nice look at the next 4 figures to make up that wave. The new wave consists of Dinobot Legend and Leader Grimlock, the insecticon Shrapnel, the little blue cassette Rumble, and the large Autobot jet Skyfire!

The Super7 ReAction figures are small 3.75" figures that feature a very 1980's cartoony look and aesthetic, with very limited articulation. They have included a fairly decent cast so far that includes the likes of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and after the recent Toy Fairs are set to include even more cast members such as Alpha Trion and Devastator.

Check out the image shared by Super7 below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

:-x Grimlock's sword is wrong, it should be silver. These are cartoon-based, and in the cartoon the Dinobots' swords are silver like they were supposed to be before the change to soft plastic.

I'm trying to remember when the Dinobots used their swords in the G1 cartoon. Which episode was it again?

Well, only Grimlock and Snarl were shown to use theirs, but both were shown to be silver. Snarl used his in almost every episode he featured in, where he fired lasers from its tip. Grimlock used his in "Madman's Paradise" to swat away boulders.

Wow. I totally forgot about that (or didn't realize that). Thank you for letting me know.

Despite its usage, I would still think the red sword is far more well known than the minor usages of "silver" swords by Dinobots in the cartoon. Personally, I'm glad they used the red sword. I feel the red swords are far more iconic to the Dinobots than the silver swords like the packaging artwork.

Well, I think they're idiots for using red here because these are obviously supposed to reflect the cartoon.

I wish the red swords weren't so iconic... I've always felt it looked bland compared to the shining silver... And Hasbro obviously wanted the swords to be silver (as with the Diaclone toys), judging by the packaging artwork, the cartoon, and the commercials. The swords (and Swoop's missiles and jaw, and Slag's horns) were only red because toy safety laws forced them to be cast in soft plastic, which couldn't be vacuum-metallized. And the bloody Marvel colorists just had to go based off the toys, and everybody since copied them...

Stupid Marvel... Although to be fair, also stupid BS&P. The Dinobots would probably have all used their swords in the cartoon, and more often, if the BS&P had been more lenient about swords in the '80s. But no.

Surprised Grimlock's sword color in the thing being discussed here, instead of the usual character and his relation to what color he should be...........

Ah, but see... 1. There is no question that in the cartoon, Rumble was the name attached to that color scheme and 2. so long as both color schemes are correctly portrayed it scarcely matters which scheme is packaged with which name :P I just hope that when they get to his twin, they use actually black rather than substituting dark blue.

I think these are what all the Masterpieces made after MP-10 look like...can we even call them "Masterpieces" anymore at this point? :-? Right now the Studio Series is taking over & for a whole lot less $$$.

Fixed that for you. Although even then, Blackarachnia and Tigatron haven't gotten the Roger Rabbit treatment.

Toon-accuracy is what the majority want, & that's what Has/Tak is giving them. Not knocking anyone for loving it, but personally the style is not for me. I love Beast Wars, but as far as characters who turn into vehicles go, I lean more towards G1/G2, RID, & Binaltech/Alternators. Although I've had my eye on Armada Wheeljack for quite some time. ("Roger Rabbit treatment?" :lol: :lol: :lol:)

That's what I call it. Where previous G1 MPs were trying to be "The character as they would look IRL," MP-44 and on are trying to be "The character as if their animation model stepped off the screen", so I think of them as the Roger Rabbit MPs

Thanks to our sponsor BigBadToyStore, we have some new images of Super 7's line of licensed Transformers ReAction figures. This is a line that takes its inspiration from G1 characters' animation models, and gives them Action Master-style (i.e. non-transforming) figures on retro themed packaging.

The latest figures to be shown in the line include G1 stalwarts Shockwave, Alpha Trion, Mirage, and Astrotrain.

Man, I'm a huge fan of the 3 3/4" scale and would be hardcore into this line if it wasn't for the horrible $18 price point. I can't justify the cost of a Hasbro deluxe for each of these even though they look amazing.
