Pft. Who needs codes when you have fingers? :lol:
Just feel the bags for the specific pieces. If you collect the lego/mega blox ones you would know. Furthermore, Lego has 16, Mega blocks has 10-ish different figures in a case, while this has only 6.

Pieces to look out for : Sunstorm's wings, Crankstart's pipes, Spinester's rotors...

As for the rest, do the "elimination" method where if it has a piece that does not belong, it's not it, and try to guess the rest of the parts. This could be harder than lego due to the amount of pieces, when lego only has hat+head+body+leg+weapon ... But hey, 6 figures opposed to 16. :lol:

Codes are nice too... I'm sure hasbro deliberately put em on there, seeing how each has a specific instruction manual.

Yep, it all works. The only issue I could foresee with the "feeling" method though is that some parts might feel kinda similar. But yeah, codes, fingers, either one.

Now we just need to get these guys showing up in stores and we'll be all set.

Good to hear I won’t have to fondle an entire box of kreons to complete a set; I’m really looking forward to these actually, strangely more than any of the Prime toys.

Ahh, easy to find and single packed Scorponok. Good stuff! If I like him enough I'll probably go for a few others, but for now I'll just get that little guy.

Stuff like this should be kept like a dirty secret (people know about it but do not say it out aloud). That's if buyers do wish to be able to ID them easily.



Megabloks has yet to come up with a new system of identification. They use number codes as well that are easily cracked. It's more sophisticated than this, but still useable for the determined.

We'll have to see how hasbro approaches this.

I'd be really surprised if Hasbro cares that people have figured out the numbers
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Really? I've just been fondling them looking for the weapons. Is there a site that tells you how to decipher the code?

Also, can't wait for these to show up in other stores, my local comic stores suck.

Do we have ANY idea at all about when these are going to be in stores? Like, this summer? Fall? 2013?

Considering the very first post says they're already showing up at comic stores? I'd say this summer. ;)

whats the point of doing blind packs if you can ID them, i guess its a good thing so you dont have to waste money looking for 1 figure but still it defeats the point of doing blind packs.

If I had to guess, I'd say it has something to do with there being a certain number of each item in each case (or perhaps a certain range, like 1-2 of item A, 1-3 of item B, etc.). Otherwise, they could end up shipping entire cases of only item A. That could result in a drop in sales of the product if people don't think they can get anything other than item A, which is the point of blindpacks.

There indeed is.

I dont know which megabloks you buy, but I know marvel and halo have codes, there's lists out there.

BBTS is selling them individually for $2.49 each ($2.34 each if you buy them by the case).

My guess is the retail price (in brick-and-mortar stores) will be about $1.99 or $2.49. (Of course, TRU will probably try to sell them for like $3.99, cause that's how they do.)

Don't know if anyone else has noticed this but the numbers on the blind packs has changed. It looks like the third digit has increased by one while the fourth digit had reset. I'm not sure if it was just the walgreens I went to but the important numbers are the last 2. For example the code on the Sunstorm I bought is 215119 the carry over numbers are 19. I hope this helps some folks out.

Only the last number matters anyway. Sunstorm is 9.
