$1 China made Transformers toy can really transform but not roll out



I bought these made in China mini Transformers toys from the shop at Mint Museum. Each costs only S$1 so I grabbed 10 of them - 5 Autobots and 5 Decepticons. The Autobots pictured above. You can easily spot Optimus Prime there.



Here are the Decepticons. Anyone familiar? The leader looks like Megatron or Starscream or maybe a hybrid of both.



The toys are pretty easy to transform as you can tell from this video above. The parts are a little flimsy and some of the toys can't stand properly when they are in their robot modes - either they are front heavy or back heavy. Oh well, I guess one can't expect too much from a $1 Transformers toy. I'm just happy that these rip-offs can still transform. More pics here.

The Decepticon toy you mentioned does look a bit like Starscream's F22 Raptor mode.

What does Hasbro have to say about this?

I didn't know Mint Museum sells cheap toys. Most of their stuff are expensive.
