    After seeing the movie, I remembered back to when I was 7 or 8 years old and actually had some transformers figures. I remember them being about 3 inches and made out of metal. When I was in a Target I went to the toy isle and looked to get one, but they are all like 7 inches tall and made of plasic.....they look cheap as hell.

    So I went onto ebay looking for the transformers I had......I cant seem to find them.......What production was made of metal?? Or am I just not remembering what I had correctly [​IMG]

    Its called Diecasting. Its a lost art. They refuse to make them for kids anymore because they can do too much damage to one another with them. I mean Scavenger came with a handy arm you can swing him by, thus making him a flail.
