Transformers Authentics

"Authentics" were introduced in 2018 as a line of lower-priced figures aimed at alternative channel stores such as Family Dollar and Woolworths in Australia. These figures used "evergreen" designs for characters that were not tied to any one specific continuity but rather borrowed design elements from various incarnations of popular characters such as Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

Toy News: Official photos of 7 inch "Authentics" figures

Last month photos of 4.5 inch scale "Authentics" figures were released on Amazon. These figures appear to be lower priced figures that are aimed at younger kids and appear to be aimed at discount stores like Family Dollar or Dollar General. The initial line up featured Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Megatron and Starscream. Now a different size class of these figures has been revealed via Hasbro's web site: 7 inch figures! These are not only larger, but appear to feature more articulation than their 4.5 inch counterparts.
