Remind me of the G1 Decoys. (Albeit coloured and chunkier.)

The difference is, they were free gifts with figures (in the West), whereas I don't think I'd pay for them (or these).

Those are awesome.

If you think otherwise, you are wrong.

Shockwave's got a real big gun...

I know, immature. I'm sorry. On topic, those like quite nifty, in a chunky sort of way.

Don't apologise, just make more of an effort to be right!

Those are quite nifty, in the Sluggy sense of the word.

Well, I need that Grimlock and Shockwave pack at least. Probably Soundwave too. I love super-deformed figures for some reason.

Bah...Bumblebee just has that 'slap me in the face' look on him. And I'm more than happy to oblige...smug little fool that he is...!

Couple of more.. guess that 'Decepticon Shrapnel' wasn't going to fly.

It's an intriguging concept, I suppose. They remind me of pics I've seen of the MyClone figures.

HOC looked better and I didn't buy those. I have no idea how the general fandom likes transformers that don't transform, but I pass every time.

Same here. Didn't Japanese also offer another non-transforming PVC line that was bigger and had better articulation?

Yeah, they did.....but these little fellows are really, cute. Thus, makes them far superior.:p

I agree with this. I'll be passing on these, like i've passed on the Titanium 3" line. Just don't really see the point in them or these.

These are more for the little guys, who really can't have the big kids toys. It's pretty the same thing as Star Wars' Galactic Heroes line.

But...I'm not a tfw2005 member. (viewing images require you to be a logged-on member, oddly enough)

They're so cute! I am getting some for my daughter's birthday!

At the risk of setting myself up for a barf, could someone get those images for us or source elsewhere, please?:(

Surely they haven't been made exclusive to tfw2005 due to excessive cuteness?

(Mirage? Oh no, oh no! Starscream - is he gritting his teeth because he thinks he looks awful, too?)

i think these are great and i intend to get them. i agree that nontransforming transformers are usually a bad idea, but i have a 3 year old who loves to watch the G1 cartoon and Movie with me but unfortunatley also has a habit of destroying any toys you give him, so these are perfect for him1 He has soem of the star wars glactic heroes figures and they are pretty builletproof, he hasn't been able to break them, so hopefully these will be as tough.

I actually bought one of the Heroes of Cybertron PVC'S for him on e-bay but decided to keep it since they come apart very easily ( the HOC Bumblee has a head, 2 hands and 2 lower legs and a torso which can all be pulled off and lost easily). These are defintely more kid friendly than HOC. Although Hoc is good for anime accurate surprisingly poseble versions of G1 characters, i don't recommend it for kids!

They remind me of the Action Masters line they had in the late 80's.

Unicron looks like he's saying "Darn kids, get off mah lawn!"
