    They're Microman toys originally. Meaning they are only "in scale" with Soundwave, Megatron, Perceptor and the other Microman TF's.


    Very rarely do the G1 tributes in later lines sport their G1 names. I coud list off half a dozen Energon and Cybertron figures that are G1 tributes that don't have the G1 name on them.

    The figures he was refering to were knowen as Micro-change witch was a sub-division or the Micro-Man toyline and were not to scale with Megatron and the others.
    As for your other point.....your right.But its a shame that they didnt use the names they should have.

    i think they should only have made a megatron, soundwave cassets, perceptor, and blaster cassets for micro master. the megatron could just be a gun with a transforming bonus featrue and the cassets would be kind of biger than the others

    My very first Transformer my dad bought for me some 20-odd years ago. Like most of my now-expensive-collectors-item toys, it has long gone missing.

    Micro-change and Micro-man have nothing to do with the Micromaster line.Micro-man and its subdivision Micro-change were ,anlonge with the Diaclone line,the original Transformers from Japan.The toy molds were mostly the same but some of the toys were different colors.....for exsample in this line the toy that would become Ironhide was black and the toy that would become Tracks was red.These toys were on the Japanese market since the late 1970's
    Micromasters was a sub-group of transformers from Hasbro that was released close to 1990.

    i think the predacons need to be remaid in some new show cause that would be awesome. and not the beast wars predacons the original one.

    My first was Soundwave back when JC Penney use to have a toy section, I remember my mom later taking off the sticker price so that my dad wouldn't know how much it cost.
