Thanks to 2005 Boards member Snaku for sharing in our forums our first in-hand images of the new WizKids’ G1 Transformers Deep Cuts Miniatures.
The Deep Cut Miniatures are unpainted G1 inspired Transformers figurines, and yes… you have to paint them completely. Wave 1 consist of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream. Each figure is nicely sculpted (for a figure this size) and they really catch the spirit of the G1 cartoon. Snaku shared for us some details about these figurines:
- Each figure come with waterslide decals (white sheet) or stickers (yellow sheet). You can choose which to apply according to your preferences or abilities.
- Either waterslides or stickers have the respective faction symbol, one of the opposing faction symbol, and one shattered glass version, with the exception of Optimus Prime who includes a transparent background grey outline symbol.
- Optimus: 74mm to the to of his antenna.
- Megatron: 73mm to the top of his head and 80mm to the top of his gun barrel.
- Starscream: 77mm to his head, 80 to his jet intake, but keep in mind he’s elevated by his jet exhaust. 69mm from his head to his heel.
- Bumblebee: 60mm.
Wave 1 is now scheduled for release on January 20, 2020 for economic $4.99, but it seems they have been spotted at some comic stores at the moment.
