What is cooler than G1 Transformers?
G1 Transformers scaled down to 2 and a half inch or less!
This is exactly what Takara Tomy did. They shrank the transformers and packed them in blind boxes so you don't know what you will get.
Something pretty popular in Japan but in Singapore they are being sold opened.
Sadly, Takara stopped this line but thankfully Justitoys (and a few others) has continued to pick this up with the release of the Dinobots, Blaster and Shockwave.
These transformers are your G1 transformers but at a much smaller scale.
Even at such a small scale, they still retain almost all details of their much bigger counterparts!
With so little plastic to play with, I must say that the paint application is very good. Very little slope, if at all.
The amazing thing about these transformers is that they are able to transform! Plus the transformation process is very similar to their G1 counterpart. This is the main reason why I collect them.
Unfortunately at this scale, people with fat fingers like me will have some trouble transforming them. Also due to the small size, you have to be more gentle so as not to break anything.
Overall, very cool toys to have and they will surely be a taking point when displayed with their G1 counterpart.

I am unable to show photos of Megatron in his gun mode simply because I can't remember how to transform him!
