Mexican TFAnimated McDonald's Toys

First came the U.S. McDonald's toys, now come the Mexican ones. Seibertron.com has shown us images of what the Mexican TFAnimated McDonald's toys look like. These little Happy Meals figures are completely different that the ones we got here in the U.S. They are entirely new molds and have a new, but familiar, transformation sequence. The toys consist of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Starscream (who's still blue). But whjat makes these so interesting is that their design is almost exactly the same as the old 1985 G1 Jumpstarters Top Spin and Twin Twist (and their international redecoes).  You may check out the images and info here.

Those are hilarious! Im reminded of the Armada Starscream happy meal toy. I miss when McDonalds came out with their own transformer molds that turned into french fries and such i still have the fry guy. At least those looked cooler.

Its funny you mention twin twist. Ironically i just found mine.

My my, they do look just like the old jumpstarters. I don't know whether to like them or hate them.

Mexico has more exciting Happy Meal Toys than we do. I remember the old McDonalds food Transformers. I was a dumb kid and destroyed my Fry Guy for some dumb reason. I have the egg mcmuffin around somewhere yet. I had more, I believe the big mac and the mcnuggets. What I wouldn't do to get those again. Does anybody know if they were offical Transformers? The ones from the old McDonalds days.

Yeesh, they're like modern updates to the Jumpstarters, even down to the same transformation!
