I’m a big fan of the original, G1 Transformers. Every time Hasbro puts out a new version of those old toys, I leap into action to preorder one (still waiting on the Blaster I preordered).
Funko Pop! Retro Transformers Preorders at Amazon

These might be my favorite Funko Pops, ever? Not just because they’re based on G1 Transformers, either. Although that helps substantially. But something about those chibi-style robots in disguise works so well in the Funko-style.
The almost remind me of Gundam SD, in a weird way, but whatever it is, I am drawn to them. Soundwave was the first Transformer toy I ever owned, and he’s always had a special place in my heart. To this day I can’t hear a vocoder without getting a little nostalgic.
The Funko Pop Retro: Transformers line up comes out December 20, 2020, and the figures cost a manageable $11 a pop. See what I did there? Dad energy.
