Artifact of the Week: Transformers: Generation One Dollar Tree Figures Set (Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Starscream)
Does a new item count as an artifact? It will be someday, so I think so. I haven’t heard about these figures being found at stores other than Dollar Tree, so I’m assuming they are exclusive. The paintjobs on these are very cool. One odd thing is their hands. They all have these odd open hands. Even Grimlock does. Transformers should always have closed fists. It just looks weird. Unfortunately these were pretty hard to find as people seem to be buying them all up to sell on eBay, making them artificially rare. It is odd that they are not blind packed. This seems like the kind of item that would be blind packed, and instead they have their own individual packaging. It makes it easier to get them all, but it is very odd.
As always, you can find over 17,000 Transformers artifacts from every Transformers series and generation at TFMuseum.com.
