Series: World’s Smallest Transformers
Release Date: 2003
Comments: Sideswipe (or to be technical Lambor) here was in the first wave of Takara’s short lived World’s Smallest Transformers series. These figures were blind boxed; making the purchase of the figure a gamble.
These figures, while short-lived are pretty stand out as a novelty item. There isn’t a whole lot of play value here, but for their size they boast an impressive amount of engineering. While Takara dropped the line pretty early on, the “World’s Smallest” concept continues to live on in the world of fan-made products with unofficial releases of Dinobots and Shockwave still periodically coming out.
