Transformers Minimates!


Recommended Posts

Considering his prominence in the new Image comic, Jetfire makes a lot of sense. I like the idea of the Fire in the Sky set and would be very happy with Ironhide and Ratchet (though Wheeljack remains my number one want). I'd be very happy to get another Soundwave in cartoon colors, especially if he comes with some cassettes. I could also see the SDCC set as a good chance to get Devastator (I'm not up on my specific Transformers episodes enough to know who else should come in a set with him). But really, I'll be happy with anyone. These sets have all been great and I can't get enough of them.

It sounds to me like the set is based on one specific episode, which wouldn't really be true for the Dinobots. Plus, one would have to be left out.

Would Jetfire look like a Super Valkyrie, or is there a licensing issue there?

Lineup could be:

Slag
Sludge
Grimlock
Wheeljack

There were only three Dinobots in their origin episode. Possibly swap out Grimlock for another character as he is already made.

Zach confirmed that one character is a repaint into cartoon colors, so I think Grimlock would be a lock if there was a Dinobot set.

SDCC 2024 TRANSFORMERS DIVIDE & CONQUER VHS MINIMATES BOX SET 

A classic episode of The Transformers comes to life in this all-new box set of 2-inch figures! Decepticon Shockwave and his henchmen Acid Storm, Ion Storm and Nova Storm (also known as the Rainmakers) are more than meets the eye, with over 10 points of articulation each and fully interchangeable parts! With a Minimate-style cover illustration, this full-color “VHS” outer box features a removable “cassette”-style inner box. Limited to only 1000 pieces, it features figure and packaging design by Barry Bradfield!

Let’s go! Animated style colors or more of the original?

Not sure! Still unscheduled at this point. Probably original metallics, but we'll see.

we can't get gi joe but we can get this?   

what a world....

I love GI Joe, and they were some of the greatest Minimates we've ever made. Not enough people bought them. No cartoon,  no movie, no interest. Transformers did great last year. Popular franchise. We haven't given up on Joe, but it's a tough sell to our sales department, which is still sitting on Series 1. We'll see how these do.

Oh i am not blaming you at all.  I know you are swinging at the fences for them... I just have sour grapes, and was hoping we could have seen some other G1 characters in the set... this looks like a box of transformers crayons :)

We have another TF set designed with more characters, including a certain purple-winged warrior, but this was a set we thought would be great for SDCC specifically. People like the Rainmakers, they get a lot less representation in toys.
