The Transformers: Age of Extinction One-Step line seems to be going nowhere - but some late comers to the plastic party may still interest some collectors out there. And fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 provides us a new video with a look at another figure from the line, High Octane Bumblebee, below!

Utilizing the "Butterfly" style of transformation Bumblebee, as it appeared early on in Age of Extinction, is represented here. Basically the toy is a re-shell of Drift with new arms and a new head. A fun figure that could make an excellent desk toy. Highly recommended.

I see everyone is conveniently forgetting that Hasbro and Takara have been making non-Transforming TF figures since 1985.

http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Decoy

The board game came AFTER the figures. Also...
"Naturally, Takara were not so unwise as to limit themselves to releasing these figures with the game alone: three large box sets were also released encompassing all fifty-three figures that made up the series."


The game was essentially nothing more than "Compare the numbers. Higher number wins." Very similar to Bot Shots, but with no transformation.
"The figures were also available individually, through "gachapon" capsule machines, in a variety of different colors including red, blue, yellow, green, orange, sky blue, pink, tan and white."

"In 1987, Hasbro imported the figurines and branded them as "Decoys", randomly packaging them with the smaller carded toys of the time."


Spin it any way you want, the fact remains: Takara has been making non-transforming TF figures since 1985, and Hasbro's been selling them since 1987.

I know he is mistransformed because I have him.I am talking about the overall look not poseability.If you count the poseability, then yes he is better than high octane.Other than that, no, not really.

ive just opened up my SDCC dinobots and had my first experiences with snarl and voyager grimlock. while theyre really nice looking, and decent toys, i feel there enough of a precedence now for an official name change of "age of extinction".

i propose:
Transformers 4 - Gorilla Arms

......

...

seriously.
does every figure in this line have gorilla arms?

most of the dinobots have them, though the vehicle-based guys all have normal arms if i remember correctly.

Does Snarl have them too?

yes he doesn, though you can work around it a bit due to the design of his wrists

As interesting as these repaints may be, I just dont find them desirable. I think there's just too much going on with each figure.
