Starting early January 2021 Transformers fans in the U.S. began to find some curious non-transforming Transformers "Zōteki" figures at Target. Created by Jazwares, the Zōteki figures feature several figures with interlocking bases that come together to create a battle scene. Interestingly, Jazwares makes no mention of this Transformers set on their site. At first, fans thought these may be Target exclusives, but below the Bumblebee listing is linked to Gamestop so it appears to be an item any retailer can carry if they wish. Check out the official photos and product descriptions of these cute little figures below!
