Still not giving us any kind of confirmation as to what the line is actually called, a fan has sent us notification of the allegedly named Transformers Authentics - featuring the 'evergreen' designs on the packaging - as spotted across a number of stores in the Philippines, as reported by vproject (though the images is by Franz Echeverria on Facebook) and maku098 of fellow Transformers fansite TFW2005.

The sightings show all four basic figures, with Decepticons Starscream and Megatron being accompanied by Autobots Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, from a Toys'R'Us store and Alabang's Toy Kingdom inside the Festival Supermall in Muntinlupa City. The price is the same, at 299.75 Philippine pesos (approx 6 USD) each, and you can check them out mirrored below - and make sure to use our Sightings database in case these or any other figures turn up near you!

So are these basically the same ones being sold in the US at Walgreens but in different packaging?

Same idea, but these are new figures. I'm sure we'll be seeing these at Walgreens, Dollar General, Big Lots and wherever else soon enough.

4.5 inches tall, like short Deluxes.

I hope this is a sign these won't be available only in market six stores.

Good question, they have the new "Authentic" logo on them, but I don't think we've seen anything boxed from this line. From what little we can see on the back of the box it looks like the non-transforming "Hero" figures (the "soap bottles").

Yeah I can see the Starscream one appealing to his fans but the other three just look really bad and blocky. I may still get Grimlock as a simple desktoy if I ever spot him.

We recently posted that the new simpler Transformers 4.5" figures, which use the evergreen designs, were found in the Philipines. Now, we finally have some in hand images of the Optimus Prime from this generic line, destined for the value market.

These images which TF fan Ikkad posted on the TFW boards are our first real look at the figure, including the paint applications and its scale compared to other figures. It seems to be between the scout and deluxe class in robot mode. Ikkad also gives his comments on the toy which you can read below.

[quote]They were all at my local department store today.

The price, just to reiterate, is in Philippine Peso (PHP).

It's a bad figure. The lack of elbows really restrict poseability, and the hollow legs prevent you from standing him up in most poses. The four step transformation is actually a bit interesting, as it differs from the Optimus standard. However, it results in the use of fake chest windows. The plastic is very cheap.

Here are some comparisons with the two other small Optimus molds. It's funny how the guy is taller than the T30 Legends.‚Äč

Overall, it feels like a cheapo KO toy, so I guess Hasbro has that market properly covered now.

I may go back and get Megatron, just to see what the Decepticons are like with their fancy elbows.[/quote]

The thing that kinds of kills it for me with this figure are the arms. They make it look like a knock off.

Wow. The arms look really bad with the lack of elbows and the giant grill flaps on the fists. For our fearless leader Optimus Prime, I'd expect more. Seems like it would sully the brand and leave a bad impression. Sigh.

This is not the future I envisioned with Transformers.

That Optimus is sad. So, so sad....

It would be AWESOME as a Happy Meal toy though.

Look at the price tags in that second picture. This thing costs less than a legion-class figure. Lower your expectations, would you?

There's a review of all 4 on youtube



i'm sure there are people loving these, but as for me, i don't think i will buy any. Even megatron that initially got me interested is kind of letdown, they don't even try to hide his head.

You know what I don't get? Why another fake chest when Hasbro would have made a similar version of the G1 toy's transformation?

But I think thats the point, they wanted to make a different transformation.
