Hasbro Transformers BotBots Deluxe Whoopsie Cushion Action FigureI got sent Whoopsie Cushion in a box with some candy and things from work. I'd been meaning to pick up some BotBots or a while, but there are hundreds of them and my collecting tastes are usually "all or nothing" with the occasional "buy one to see what it's like." So despite the line being packed with things like retro computers, popcorn buckets, video games, hats, and food, I just stuck with the line I was working on already. For the future compulsive toy nerds, I assume this line is going to be a massive and expensive proposition to collect seeing how quickly recently discontinued toys climb on the secondary market. It used to be that lines had a period of time where they went below cost - that seems less common now.

This was a random grab, and a neat one. The pitch on this line was that a bolt of energon hit a shopping mall - sadly, a retail behemoth increasingly absent from the American wilds - and brought a bunch of random objects to life. It's all consumer goods, Shopkins-as-Transformers, and it's a spectacular idea. If this were released 1,000+ reviews ago I'd be all-in here, but as it is I'm going to admire these from afar, mostly. I do have this one, and I like it. It's simple.

These aren't far off from 1:12 scale accessories, so you can have your Marvel Legends or other 6-inch figures posed with them relatively nicely. While the shell doesn't fit together perfectly, it does get close enough to the famous rubber bladder/fart machine. I'm curious if kids know what this is today, or if it's all soundboards or other effects? I never had one as a kid, so it's more of something I knew from old TV. And this seems like a close enough approximation.

The solid pink thing is here, inflated, with a puff of smoke icon giving you an idea of what this thing should do. It looks close enough to the genuine article that it doesn't require explaining, and if the "slices" fit together better I'd say it was a must-buy. As is, it's a perfectly nice random grab/diversion at the check-out.

As one of the Magic Tricksters - a new faction and one of several introduced in this range - she stands about as tall as a BB-8 figure. Just shy of 2-inches tall, she can stand around with some ball-jointed limbs... and that's about it. It's a nifty transformation that's done by folding out and rotating a few elements, and as long as you know how it should look you can easily figure it out. It's good for kids.

Once in robot mode, she can stand around and look cool on a shelf - or be collected. It's not something you can really play with in any classic sense, as there is not much interactivity with other toys - other than as an accessory, as you can see. It expands on what a Transformers toy can be, but I wouldn't say it's likely to ignite the future passions of young fans without an animated TV show. Without on-pack "collect them all" galleries or posters or catalogs, I assume future generations will be grateful for the wikis and other sites archiving these vast troves of names and photos to know what to get when the need for nostalgic retail therapy kicks in.

Assuming you have the patience and money, it's probably a good time to collect these before they go away and cost more than a couple of bucks each. Get a few, and see what you think. Were I not already collecting War for Cybertron stuff I'd probably have a complete set of these little buggers because it's not going to take up very much room, and it's charming.
