We have received reports from all over of the new Construct-Bots hitting retail. Donald R. Grayson III sent us the following pic of Construct-Bot Bumblebee. If you see any new sighting in your area, please send them to News@Seibertron.com or post them in our handy dandy sightings forum.

Image

We also have sightings of Bumblebee and Blitzwing from Seibertron and Razorclaw0000 at Toys'R'Us in Schaumberg, IL and Wilkes-Barre, PA respectively.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Just another lame gimmick that looks like crap. These things are more annoying than Kreons.

Just release the IDW Generations figures already!

Least half the wave one look decent.

SKYQUAKE?!?!?! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I think the bigger news is how the heck the photographer found a SKYQUAKE! :BOOM:

I'm a bit on the fence on these Bionicle TFs. :-? To be fair, though, I wasn't a fan of the Kreon's either! >:oP

Yeah... that's AWFULLY expensive for what I'm assuming is the equivalent of a mid-size Hero Factory set. $15-18 would be reasonable, but $25 is WAY too much. Look forward to seeing these on deep discount though. :lol:

From what I've seen before, I might be willing to pay about $10 for these. $25 is plain nuts. I see another year of well-stocked TJX stores ahead.

I can live with that. :grin: Especially if the parts are good and versatile~

Oh hey, Vange1us, you just made me happy with your showfloor demo!

I was lucky enough to pick up 2 Triple Changer Construct-Bots Bumblebees and one Blitzwing at the TRU in Lombard. As a added bonus, picked up Skyquake and Masterpiece Thundercracker.

Saw both of these guys yesterday.
Blitzwing looked cool, especially as a triple changer, but I am hesitant due to the price point.

Just to be clear I own them they can only be in one mode at a time. Either tank or jet parts on the figure so if you have to swap off parts it's a parts changer. And the video you are talking about showed wheel jack not a triple changer.

Really? Well that's disappointing, what happened to all the engineering they were talking about? =_=; Sorry for the mistake.

It's cool and both blitz and bee transformation was the same way and so was wheeljacks. All the figures have wheels or wings even soundwave. I still think they are cool and the guy said it was to get younger kids that can't transform the figures we love into the brand. So that right there is a cool thing because it will help TFs get into younger generations so that we always have fans growing up and loving the brand.
