Transformers collectibles: The Loyal Subjects.

The Loyal Subjects is a company that makes Vinyl figures of many pop culture icons including Teenage Mutant Turtles, Power Rangers, G.I.Joe and most importantly for this blog… Transformers! They also have a clothing line and make other products, please check out their website when you have time www.theloyalsubjects.com

The sizing for these figures are mostly around 3″-3.5″ high, but there some larger figures available. They do not transform, have limited mobility in the limbs but do come a part. some feature spring loaded parts and LEDs built in.
