Making the rounds earlier today (Wednesday to you probably) was news of new figures from the extremely cool 'World's Smallest' line of tiny replica classic toys. Coming seemingly out of left field are new Transformers, GIJOE, and Power Rangers figures. You read the site, you know me, you're not surprised that I'm all in for this.
I've already got the prior World's Smallest version of the classic 12" GIJOE and have been tempted by their really neat blind boxed toys. Little cool things like this are really fun and hard not to like, especially if you're a fan of little figures like me. I really like the tiny packaging inside the actual packaging. That's super cool I do wish the Transformers packaging was a little more G1 inspired since they're obviously aiming for the nostalgia crowd, but it's not too big of a deal.
My initial impressions (outside of pure joy) was that these would make excellent Diaclone Drivers for Transformers that fit pilots. However on a sharper inspection, I can see the legs are not articulated. Oh well, they'd still make for some neat humans to hang around bases that'd be in relative scale. They should be hitting stores in late summer, so just the perfect thing to stuff stockings with come Christmas.
