TF Hero Mashers - the swappable-limb Action Masters

Ancillary, non-main-line stuff. Star Wars TF, Speed Stars, Titanium Series, Robot Heroes, that sort of thing. They're kinda neat, but we all know they're not really that important. Admit it, you know it's true.

TF Hero Mashers - the swappable-limb Action Masters

Postby JediTricks » Wed Jun 11, 2014 11:32 am

So I saw a trio of these at TRU yesterday here in Culver City, Optimus, Megatron, and Bulkhead basic $10 figures - none of which are listed in the original wave 1 case, so I dunno what is up with that.

Anyway, if you've been down a toy aisle in the last 6 months or so, you've seen Hasbro's Super Hero Mashers with Marvel characters - 7" action figures with snap-apart limbs and swappable accessories - and this is the same line but now Transformers can be mixed and matched as well. The good thing about these TF figures is they have their own sculpts; the bad thing is of course they don't have alt modes. But the sculpts and paint really are soft and simple for the younger set, they really are akin to Action Masters.

So, do these seem like something you're going to get? They are G1-focused, unlike the deluxe Optimus which I think is movie-focused.

G1 based figures always tempt me more, so it's a possibility. I don't think I've seen any yet though.

I saw all of wave 1 basics (G1ish Starscream, movie Drift and Bumblebee) and it turns out Optimus, Megs, and Bulkhead are deluxes that are more money because they have a few more parts, and I do seem to mean "few". This line really does remind me of Action Masters the more I see it.

I could see some of these being fun with some of the hero mashes that look like robots, like Iron man and Dr. Doom

That is a hell of an idea.

I saw some of these at my local TRU store today. They were a lot bigger & heavier than I thought they would be. Thought this is one of Hasbro better newer ideas. I won't be buying any of these as I don't buy side line TF toys.

Yeah,I also think these are action masters done right.

The Starscream and Megatron,I thought looked the best. I really like their head sculpts. I was thinking about popping the heads off and using them on other TF toys. Sadly the ball joint on the neck & the hole under the head is way too oversized to fit on any TF toys in that size level.

I went looking for these at Wal-Mart and Target this week, but no luck. Nothing in my area yet.

Try Toys R Us, that's the only place I've seen them.
