Jada items are released so sporadically and sometimes not for years after they are announced, if at all, that I didn’t actually expect to see this out so soon. It’s a cool set, though some of the paint jobs aren’t great, and some of the faces look melted. Some are missing needed details on their legs and feet. It’s cool that they are die cast, and I guess for the price we shouldn’t expect a lot, but I wish they had made better more detailed molds and painted them better. I’d have happily paid more for them if the quality was better. Walmart has the set at $12, but I think that’s a mistake and they are priced as if on clearance. Not sure what they would be at Target, I haven’t seen them there. There is a box variation, where they are package horizontally instead of vertically that I’ve seen online, but I don’t know where that is available. Also included are Autobot and Decepticon display backgrounds that you can cut from the back. It would have been nice if they had been punch out rather than having to cut them. Nothing more to say about the. Pics below.

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
