Transformers Artifact of the Week: Dunkin Panrico Figures
So, the eBay seller called these “Dunkin Panrico” figures, so that’s what I am going with. They look a lot like the Japanese Gashapon decoys from G1, but they are not rubber. These are hard plastic, and pretty good quality at that. These could be recently made and not vintage, I really don’t know. Best I can tell, “Dunkin Panrico” are plastic Gashapon figures from Spain (these came from Mexico). I found some info on Masters of the Universe Dunkin Panrico figures. Whether or not these are Dunkin Panrico, or the seller just thought they were since they are similar, they are pretty cool. The figures are Brawn, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Laserbeak (or Buzzsaw), Optimus Prime, Ravage, Reflector, Soundwave, and Starscream (or Skywarp or Thundercracker). Brawn is the interesting one. I’m not 100% sure that is Brawn. He has the spare tire that Brawn has on his roof on the chest. Obviously if it is Brawn he is very different than the actual toy. If anyone has any info on these, please let me know.
As always, you can find over 14,000 Transformers merchandise items and collectibles at TFMuseum.com.
