Just saw figures of Galvatron, dead Optimus, Hot Rod, & Coronation Starscream…
I actually like the look of Galvatron.

Who out there collects the Transformers ReAction figures from Super7? These are the non transforming retro figures meant to emulate the Star Wars figures of old. They seem to have a fanbase spread much beyond the Transformers fan base. We know this since while I have yet to hear about much excitement within the community, the newly revealed Target exclusives sold out their preorders within minutes. They will be in stores in February 2022 though, so you have another chance at getting them then. These are the Gold Lagoon versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron.

But wait, there's more!

We also have a Facebook post form Super7 themselves unveiling their new Christmas themed Optimus Prime! this toy is due out in November. All these toys are around the 18$ mark. You can preorder this Christmas Prime at BBTS: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... ils/181059

Okay so these are absolutely pointless and dumb to me.

But I really like that candy cane blaster. If it was 5mm, I might even buy Santa Prime just for it.

I agree, as I wrote in the article, I feel the collectors of this line are not also transformers collectors. Which is interesting. While this line stars some of our hobby's main characters, it seems to exist outside of the hobby. Not sure if the Funko Pops line is similar.

I buy them, which usually counts for nothing at all, but I don't collect licensed TF products carte blanche. I keep them on the card and will have them take up a wall someday, which is what I already do with the old HoCs. They're stunning on the card. I wasn't into them until I bought Grimlock just because it was Grimlock, but I fell in love.

Now some of their other stuff like the Cyborgs? Full pass, not for me.

I am in exactly the same boat as Scotty.
Keeping these MOSC for future display on a wall.
I think they look amazing and the ActionMaster feels are pretty strong for me, tbh.
Cyborgs and the like, not as interesting to me, which keeps my wallet in line.

Funko, only have the 1 Convention exclusive Grimlock, and that was because it was crazy cheap @ Gamestop; $7, i believe.
Not really of interest to me otherwise but do appreciate the efforts on Funko part to get them out there.
The only other one i may get is ShockWave and that is mainly to display next to the Mighty Muggs version i got years ago for cheap as an interesting, to me at least, comparison in aesthetics.

Well, I got one of these little things. I bought the Santa Prime because finally a Christmas TF, and christmas is my favorite holiday.

Having him in hand, this is still something I like the idea of owning, but do not recommend at all. This thing was $19.32 after tax, with the $4 BBTS shipping, so like $23ish for the whole thing. It is maybe worth $8 if that, this thing is on par with Cyberverse scouts. It is just not good. I am glad they made a Santa Prime, but this will be the only ReAction figure I get, no doubt.

We have some fun news for ReAction figures fans with images for the next wave. This one features Arcee, Grimlock, Prowl and Reflector all with a very G1 Sunbow aesthetic. While they all cost $17.99, Grimlock is substantially bigger than the rest, as you can see from the packaging images. These are already available for preorder at a few websites including BBTS. These are due out this month.

This Arcee, compared to the Masterpiece's torso *and* the Bumblebee Movie Arcee's face, seems "Uplifted". :-D

And so, the Action Master Arcee that was a BotCon pipe dream sometime back in the '90s, has finally (well, effectively) come to pass...but only after her Masterpiece toy and dozens of others, official and 3P.

Yet for that reason, she might end up being the second ReActon TF I buy after Deadimus Prime. Still on the fence about really collecting this line. That Reflector might be my tipping point though. I can see ignoring him or army-building, there's no in between. Even allowing that there should be twice as many without the tummy-lens, a second one could be "Warrior" from Divide and Conquer. "No! Please! Not me! No!"

My Re-Action to these figures:

Ew... Goddamn ugly, limited articulations, and almost 20$US each. All of my nope.
Still, the artwork on the cards are amazing. If by some bizarre circumstance I buy one of these, the toy would remain sealed and I'd hang the card on the wall.

New Super 7 toys have been found at Target by RMaster who posted images on Twitter. The two toys found were G2 Grimlock and toy deco Galvatron. However, the even bigger news here is that the back of the card revealed more toys coming in this line. We can see Cyclonus, Ultra Magnus, Wreck-Gar, Sharkticon, Quintesson and best of all Unicron. And this isn't modelled after the Transformers movie but is instead modelled after the original prototype of the G1 Unicron toy. You can see an image of that original toy below. So now that means that this never released design will actually get a release. Albeit a smaller non transforming one. Still, it will be a 6 inch ReAction figure, so it will be one of the bigger figures in this line.

So, Action Master Unicron...HOLDING A GUN, no less! Ever since I got Action Master Bumblebee and Devastator and had them duke it out when I was 12, I've had a sort of long-running fever-dream that if the U.S. G1 line had continued into 1992 instead of pausing before G2, Hasbro would've produced this very toy.

I mean, who/what is he going to shoot with that thing? Tornadron? (If it's an energy-draining de-kineto blaster) Eternity? The Living Planet? Those assume TF Marvel Continuity never totally splintered off from the Marvel Universe...

...Oh right, continuity splinters! After his third attack on Cybertron in Aspects of Evil Part 5, he came back in an even smaller body to go on a shooting spree right after Peace, reuniting the warring Autobots against a common enemy, then realized Peace was just the future of Earth Force continuity and fled to Japan, where he hid inside that Beast Wars Neo toy, trapped temporarily when it was cancelled...

...but only until an all new TF comic universe came into existence for him to devour, so he came back in an even smaller form...

...Pat Lee. And this absurd ReAction figure tells the whole story, better than any "Ultimate". Well done, Super 7.

Not that I'm knocking the gun, per se. It makes more sense than that one Frieza toy that came with a machine gun.

Am I the only one who always thought The Revenge looked like it had previously doubled as Unicron's handgun, even before the combining rail gun gimmick with Kingdom Galvatron?
Okay, I'll get off this...

Dang, each new ReAction wave has even more figures I'm going to have to make exceptions for. And if I end up going back to complete earlier waves on the secondary market, ugh...

An interesting deep cut of a decision, and honestly I'm all for it.
Especially interesting considering the rest are based on animation models, but I guess they wanted to put the old concept out since there's already an official Unicron figure with a 'toon accurate look!

FYI, Unicron's gun is based on an early concept where the figure would come with a stand that transformed into a blaster.

This is great news you guys!

Big Unicron out and about! Great Super7 (not my fav company) is doing this, hope it does well and Hasbro takes a hint.

Just Haslab the original Unicron and I think plenty of us old folk will support and buy it. This G1 Unicron, is he Titan size or smaller? If they can get big boy to be under 200 euro's it's a no brainer for me.

I will get this, it needs to happen!

Not the Super7 figure.

As far as we're aware of his intended size:

Personally, I don't think there is a need for HasLab-Greed.

Remaking this mold wouldn't exactly cost the Earth today. As mentioned earlier, he could easily be sold under the reissue banner in G1 packaging. For potentially the price of a Devastator boxset. As he should have been all those years ago.

Titan class is too small for unicron
and he already got the haslab, so the next unicron will probably take a while to come out officially if at all.

Well, because it will be different from what we usually gets.
Also, many like myself LOVES the appeal of old vintage clunky things. The price and demand of old G1 Transformers and other vintage toys is proof enough.

Be honest.
Compared to let's say Leader Earthrise Optimus Prime, the original G1 Optimus Prime is a "bad toy" (ignoring the trailer, of course.), and is basically "garbage" compared to today's standards.
But people keep buying him. Over and over. Why? It's not because it's the "better" Optimus. It's nostalgia and the vintage appeal.

I bet many TF fans who were not even alive when Beast Wars came out are now adult today and spend a fortune on G1 toys. There's also a huge market for old metal vehicles from last century.

Feel free to not like the old stuff, but I know I'm not alone in wanting "new" G1 toys like the unreleased Unicron prototype. The G1 Arcee too.

If they actually produced this, my bet would be it would be a shelfwarmer. It would be geared towards a minority subset of the collector community, just like the BW characters. Personally, I'm getting sick of tired of seeing 25 Scorponoks, 40 Shadow Panthers, 30 Waspinators, etc taking up the shelves in the stores, to please the few, but don’t see better characters like Legacy Cosmos, Motormaster, Blitzwing, etc. which seem to be in higher demand.

*Edit: forgot to mention the BW reissues that are littering the shelves... every character I've seen, ends up in the clearance section, because there isn't a high demand for them...

I'd definitely pick up a release of G1 Unicron and Arcee. Just because of the history behind them. But I don't think G1 Unicron was titan class. Even with a voice box.

I doubt he'd do well at retail, though. I mean there's a market for retro toys, but this isn't a regular sized toy; it's really large. I dunno if kids would want him today.

Why? I get that it was the original prototype, but that thing is ugly as hell. Wouldn't it be better for Hasbro/Takara to focus their efforts on better toys, or improving old toys, instead?


Well, because it will be different from what we usually gets.
Also, many like myself LOVES the appeal of old vintage clunky things. The price and demand of old G1 Transformers and other vintage toys is proof enough.

Be honest.
Compared to let's say Leader Earthrise Optimus Prime, the original G1 Optimus Prime is a "bad toy" (ignoring the trailer, of course.), and is basically "garbage" compared to today's standards.
But people keep buying him. Over and over. Why? It's not because it's the "better" Optimus. It's nostalgia and the vintage appeal.

I bet many TF fans who were not even alive when Beast Wars came out are now adult today and spend a fortune on G1 toys. There's also a huge market for old metal vehicles from last century.

Feel free to not like the old stuff, but I know I'm not alone in wanting "new" G1 toys like the unreleased Unicron prototype. The G1 Arcee too.

If they actually produced this, my bet would be it would be a shelfwarmer. It would be geared towards a minority subset of the collector community, just like the BW characters. Personally, I'm getting sick of tired of seeing 25 Scorponoks, 40 Shadow Panthers, 30 Waspinators, etc taking up the shelves in the stores, to please the few, but don’t see better characters like Legacy Cosmos, Motormaster, Blitzwing, etc. which seem to be in higher demand.

*Edit: forgot to mention the BW reissues that are littering the shelves... every character I've seen, ends up in the clearance section, because there isn't a high demand for them...


Well, logic would dictate that it would be produced in relatively limited quantities for online stores only. He'll also be expensive as hell.

Remaking this mold wouldn't exactly cost the Earth today. As mentioned earlier, he could easily be sold under the reissue banner in G1 packaging. For potentially the price of a Devastator boxset. As he should have been all those years ago.

The problem is, if not HasLab, who will Hasbro sell to? Walmart and Target have said in past they are hesitant about giant toys in niche categories, and second gen nostalgia alone won’t sell Unicron like G1 Prime. Could they do this through Selects? Could they do it through Amazon/Online Retailers? I am not sure but my gut says no. HasLab let’s them control and adjust the costs to match production run size

This is really neat for those who are excited for this, but I have Christmas Prime, and he will be the only of these I get, these are just not even remotely worth it.

Because then he'd be the same size as Devastator and Unicron. They only reserve the 6" for the really giant characters.

Emerje

Are you saying devastator and unicron being the same size is good scale? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Scale matters not in this line of figures. Is it a really big character? he gets the 6" figure; otherwise, you are 3.75".

Saying the BW community is a minority like that is both pretty wrong and narrow based on your stores. Mine still have shelfwarming SS86 Blurrs, Kups, Sweeps, and Wreck Gars, and all the beasts are gone, including the walmart exclusive ones, so it's all about your specific location. Beast Wars is hardly G1 Unicron level of minority target audience.

Exactly. Super7 drew a line between large characters and giant characters and it runs right between Jetfire and Devastator.

As for making G1 Unicron into a figure, while I would really like that, I don't see Hasbro doing it. There is the smaller Takara version with the stand, but that still feels out of reach.

What I would like to see is the next best thing, a non Transforming Super7 Super Cyborg version. Proportions would be good and at a reasonable size of 11".

G1 Unicron is a big figure from that era at approximately 12 to 14 inches tall. I'm assuming brand new tooling for a figure that large with a low production run would make Unicron a much more expensive figure than a G1 reissue Devastator with existing tooling that has been around for almost 40 years (give or take with the Diaclones).

However, I would absolutely love to see a 40th, 45th, or 50th anniversary faithful reproductions of Unicron and G1 Arcee (in prototype colors and accurate colors for Arcee). Toss in some collectible G1 style'd boxes with or without windows and I'm 1000% sold. In my fantasy land where we get those at some point, I figured about $300 for a reproduction of G1 Arcee and around $500 for Unicron would be appropriate.

One day!

Well, as Walmart and Target mean nothing to anyone outside the US. I would infer G1 Unicron would be an online retail piece. In recent years, in spite of some fans wholeheartedly buying into Hasbro's line about extra engineering and parts numbers dramatically increasing price. A G1 figure is extremely basic and that excuse wouldn't really apply. They would inflate the price anyway, because Hasbro. But he realistically shouldn't be too more expensive to make or sell than G1 Devastator or any other combiner team, or City Bot.

HasLab-Greed means they can bump up the price to whatever they feel like and some will blindly throw money at it regardless.

See but that would price G1 Arcee around the range of Masterpiece Dinobot. G1 Unicron to MP-44. Which I think would be a false equivalence. Hasbro would never honestly price either. But they could likely leave such reproductions to their lowest level designers. Who could probably finish it in a weekend.
