Thanks to tee bizz on Youtube, we have our first in hands look at Super7's ReAction Transformers! For those not aware, ReAction is Super7's line of retro-style action figures, usually with five points of articulation at 3.75" scale. Think of them like Action Masters, but with less articulation. Each figure comes with a weapon accessory (including Starscream who comes with a gun Megatron) except for Megatron who's canon is certainly large enough. The review covers Megatron, Starscream and Jazz.

The entire first wave consists of Optimus Prime, Jazz, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave. Next will be an even more ambitious set for February made up of Alpha Trion, Skyfire, Mirage, Grimlock, Shockwave, Rumble, Shrapnel, and Devastator. The suggested price is $15 though most retailers seem to be more comfortable $18.

What do you think? Do Transformers need to transform or are you all in for the cartoon accuracy? Or are you just here for the retro vibes? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think!

I wish Megatron had a swivel to allow him to fire his Fusion Cannon

I remember these. You youngsters might not remember them, but back in my day we used to call them "Action Masters". So.. not entirely sure how I feel about this specific line. It's a little nostalgic for me, and yet I remember not liking Action Masters very much...

Wow these look surprisingly good, with some sharp AF paint decos, but a little smaller than expected. Will be getting Soundwave for shrine reasons.

They are so G1 cartoon accurate, does that make these "Action Masterpiece" figures?

But the Action Masters had more possibility (granted just knee joints) and had their partners.

I'm just riffing on the current trend of super toon accuracy "to a fault" of the MP line.

They are kind of like less articulated, better painted action masters.

I think I'll pass, but they are kind of an interesting thing to have out there in the universe.

Not yet.

This isn't action masters. Action masters were more articulated and came with a transforming component so there was still a Transformers element.

This line is not banking on action master nostalgia (at least not purposefully) instead it's about imposing the limited 5 articulation points of the first star wars Kenner figures from the 70s to all franchises. So it's even more retro.

I like them, they're cute.... but they're not $18 cute. I think if I saw them on clearance for $8 I might buy one, but at that price I can get a deluxe fig, man.

If S7 hadnt increased the price i'd be getting some but going from $13 (the price reactions were a few months ago) to $18 is a deal breaker. I am on SSI and can not convince myself to spend that much on a 5 POA figure thats 4 inches.

I'll be in a minority in that action masters were some of my favourite transformers (first figures I had as a kid) and I've always wanted reissues in better colours, or new characters made in the same style. These really should be something I want to buy, but somehow they manage to miss the mark. Close but no cigar. Won't be buying them but I hope they are successful.

while I do not want to pay the $18 for these, Jazz looks kinda cool, I kinda want him
