GI Joe, Ninja Turtles, Ghost Busters -- if it was a kids cartoon, I had the action figures to recreate it in my sandbox. And in my collection, the undisputed kings of the action figures were the Centurions (anyone else remember these guys? Man and machine, action ex-treme!) and the all mighty Transformers. Something about robots which could fold (albeit awkwardly) into other things is just fundamentally cool for a toy. And in the years since, the world has not stopped producing Transformers action figures, presumably because they continue to sell.
With the advent of the new, live-action movie, we were automatically guaranteed another round of Transformer action figures; there was absolutely no way that market would be missed. Like the new look or not, you're going to have to live with it for at least the next few years because you're going to see it on all the new products. You all know where this post is heading, right? Exactly -- Hasbro has rolled out the new line of Transformer toys, and you can sneak a peak at two of them right here. Have a look, and tell us what you think. Would these guys be king of your childhood toy box?
