Re: Bandai Transformers

Interesting...never heard of these.

The minis appear to be Legend sized at 70mm, but the transform is formulaic with leg kibble...a friction motor gimmick, perhaps?

The larger figs look great but the shield part forming is meh and there are few paint apps for $44...still these are really intriguing and I might pick up one or two to review.

Man, those 80s Bandais had some sophisticated engineering and transforms, hopefully these have some of the magic.

Re: Bandai Transformers

Kind of disappointing to see Bandai developing transforming cars that look even less impressive than Happywell's Road-Bots. Looks like they cheat a lot with parts-forming.

Still... curious to see more...

Re: Bandai Transformers

I think they're part of some kind of Arcade game they have going on there.

EDIT: Found a trailer for the anime

And footage of the game:

Re: Bandai Transformers

They don't look too good. And they seem to cheat as well.

Re: Bandai Transformers

The Cong Loader one, the larger scale, actually looks pretty cool. The others seem worth a pass in my opinion.
