Greetings Seibertronians! Site sponsor, Entertainment Earth, has revealed some new items from Super7! The figures are an expansion on their ReAction line. These four non-transforming, articulated figures stand 7" tall and come with accessories.

The intriguing part of this is the character selection. Optimus Prime is a given, but the next two are a blast from the past for those who remember/collect Action Masters: Banzai-tron and Bombshell! While of course Bombshell was introduced before as the leader of the Insecticons, this figure is directly inspired by the European only Action Naster release, down to the Scarab robot Needler! Banzai-tron on the other hand, first appeared as an Action Master, but captured fans imagination enough that he went on to appear in other Transformers media. Like Bombshell, he also comes with his robot partner, Razor-sharp.

Lastly, we have the Ghost of Starscream, recreating the character when he makes his glorious return in Season 3 of the original cartoon! Starscream even comes with a different head so you can re-create his G1 toy look of you so wished.

Talk about attention to detail. At first I thought Bombshell's "horn" was missing but lo and behold, it's accurate to the original Action Master figure:

Nice job on including Bombshell's and Banzai-tron's partners!

I would rather see Action Masters in the ReAction line (ReAction Masters is right there as a name!), but I couldn't resist picking up Banzai-Tron. Here's hoping that the next wave includes other characters without alt-modes like Alpha Trion.

Obviously Banzai-Tron's the standout for me, though I really like Action-Master Bombshell getting a redo of all things (why him specifically?). But at 55 bucks for what's basically a Voyager-size Action Master, I'll have to pass.

Instead of making $55 dollar P.O.S. figures, how about we get a updated Voyager sized Banzai-Tron?? Jeebus Cricket.. this is atrocious. I can't believe how overpriced these garbage heaps are. I'd say maybe 12 dollars max but wtf. Glad someone out there will like them tho! But if we don't buy them maybe they'll stop making them and allocate resources to better figures. Ugh. :BANG_HEAD: :SICK: :BOOM:

Well, this is an interesting first assortment. Super7 does things like this, mixing up popular characters with more obscure ones. I'm happy but, what do I have to do to get a gun mode Megatron in this scale?

Its not Hasbro making them though, its Super7, hasbro isn't going to give third party companies a licence for Transformable figures. Actually, Super7 have paid for the licence. The company have their own style of doing things, and the fact they've gone bigger, means they must have done something right.

Optimus is a huge "meh" and that Starscream is an abomination.

However, Bombshell is magnificent and Banzaitron is a must have!
Too bad the prices are too high for my tastes. Especially for the small size.

Can anyone explain to me what the use is of "Transformers" that do not transform?
I see them everywhere. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

Are you trying to act like Action Masters aren't Transformers? They're G1, which everyone knows is the only real Transformers. Kids these days, no respect for the history.

Not everyone that's a fan of these Robots in Disguise has the... je ne said quoi... to deal with the actual transforming toys. With these Super7 and R.E.D. releases, as well as other merchandise, one can still own something relating to the series they like so much. >:oP

If you're going to re-do Action Masters, then maybe I dunno ... make them affordable and not hard to get?

The previous Hero Masher line would have been a perfect opportunity.

It's Super7's modus operandi. They release one or two BIG characters in a wave with the rest padded out with cult favorites. It gets people invested for more than one wave and helps them pad out the line. For example, their Playmates style TMNT line would've been over after the first wave if they did all four Turtles.

Dude... they were a dumb concept then and they are now. Why take away the main gimmick of a toy and still say it's that? Yes, they had transforming items with them, but... any regular toy can have equipment that changes forms, so that's not even special.

Articulation, show-accuracy, and re-releasing old characters. Give that some thought. ;)

Says you.

Fact is non-changing Transformers sell well so there's definitely a market for them out there. Super7 Re:Action figures fly off the shelves plus their Super Cyborg lines sells well enough to support their $75 price tag, Hero Mashers sold well enough to get 4 waves, RED sells out almost as fast as Walmart can stock it, those stupid Titan Guardians that Walmart insists on stocking since 2013, Robot Replicas from the first two movies, all the stuff done in Japan (Revoltech, SCF, Mega SCF, etc.), Flame Toys various figures and model kits, and all those super expensive statues and $300 statue-like figures that most people wouldn't dare move too much.

Not everybody cares if their figures can actually transform, they just want a nice looking figure for the shelf. Hell, a lot of us that do like transforming figures stick them on a shelf in robot mode and never touch them again so they may as well not be able to transform. Most of the lines mentioned above were made with adult collectors in mind, not kids.

Alright, that said, Banzaitron and Bombshell look fantastic as updated Action Masters (please do Treadshot next!), but man, 7", that doesn't scale well at all for those two IMO. 5" or 6" would have been ideal. I might get Banzaitron because he doesn't get enough love and he and Treadshot (please do Treadshot next!) are my favorite AMs. Price doesn't bother me, I paid $65 plus shipping for the smaller Figure Complex (powered by Revoltech) Convoy in 2019. Still a whole year away so who knows... maybe if they also do Treadshot. (please do Treadshot next!)

I 100% agree with you, BUT ... Action Masters exist. If every other gimmick is getting a modern take, then why not Action Masters?

Having collected several last year, they have NOT held up well at all (much like a few G1 figures), so a modern update with decent joints would not go astray at all.

On seeing a photo of Action Master Bombshell earlier in the thread, I have to say it looks much better than the $50+ collector-targeted remake.

I collect transforming figures etc etc, but yikes. They may be called "ultimates," but these figures seem to be anything but!

Amen.

And I think with that Banzaitron, they nailed it. Even with the "transforming" pet.
Too bad that for me and you, it's a 100$ figure. :(
If a Canadian online retailer pick him up and the overall price is cheaper than importing from the USA, I'm thinking of getting him regardless. I'll wait for a video review though, to see if he'll be a kind of "Masterpiece" Banzaitron. :-?
