Weapon: Gattling Gun
Good news for you Canadian Transformers Prime fans, the "Robots in Disguise" Entertainment Pack featuring repaints of "First Edition" Deluxes Bumblebee and Starscream with Leland "Silas" Bishop and MECH Soldier has been sighted at retail. The Entertainment Pack along with Bot Shots Optimus Prime and Megatron with Launchers were spotted at a Wal-Mart in Ontario according to Cybertron.CA. Sorry folks, like most of the "First Edition" figures, this set will not see a US release. It was revealed at Toy Fair 2012 that this set will only be released in Canada and some Asian markets. However, Seiberton was able to acquire a set and we have a full high quality gallery for your viewing pleasure, which can be found by clicking here.

So once again, the country that created the Transformers Mythology doesn't get the cool toys. Thanks Hasbro. Oh and please put out more Bumble Bees. I only saw 8 on the hooks Toys R Us, Walmart and Target, 8 each store that is. I mean who wants Arcee, Rachett, or Soundwave.
The least they could do is put the Entertainment packs on their own website.

Besides which, we didn't create it to begin with. We picked it and adapted it for US audiences, that's it just like we did with all the cool stuff like Star Blazers (Yamato), Robotech (Macross) and Voltron (don't ask me what the hell they called it beside Go-Lion, I don't know and you folks can Google as well as I can).
The United States isn't capable of coming up with stuff this cool. Instead, we gave the world stuff like Scooby Doo and Grape Ape and other things that I'm fairly certain involved illicit drugs during their inception.

Ummmm we only took the designs of the original toys from diaclone and microman. Transformers was created by the U.S. the Japanese adapted it for their audiences. The only series that were originally Japanese were Beast Wars II, Beast Wars Neo, Robots in Disguise (car robots) and whatever they called Armada, Energon and Cybertron.

I think what JGR is getting at is that Brit' Simon Furman is probably responsible for a large portion of the TFmythos.

As an aside, I got this set from eBay for £45 posted. It's a nice set, especially if you haven't got the FE versions.

And The Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory, and Zone. The G1 Transformers cartoon was American-made, with its animation outsourced to Asian studios like Toei and AKOM. It wasn't an anime.

Plus, the Marvel G1 comics preceded the cartoon, so it was Marvel who made all the characters, not Japan.

Nationalistic chauvinism is idiotic.

Regional exclusives are annoying.

I like these repaints.

Don't really care about this set so if it never hits the US I won't be bummed. I will wonder what the heck is up with Hasbro's distribution though.

I really want the OP/Megs set with the kids...

In regards to this set... yawn. It's exclusivity is the only thing that makes it appealing.

Thank you!! So I'm not the only one who thinks that. Maybe paint the "silver" parts an aqua/light blue color and maybe a slightly different head....Slipstream lives!

In hand, that starscream makes a way better skywarp than the AM version does. The whole charcoal and light purple colour fits much better with the prime look than the flat black. ;)

You guys misread my first post in a pretty big way. I was simply trying to refer to these pet peeves of European collectors:

- No exclusives
- Lines almost always end just past halfway
- Prices are ridiculous

Saying something to the likes of "We "invented" Transformers, so we're entitled to the cooler toys" just screams elitism, which is one of my pet peeves.

Anyhow, back on track...

That Starscream looks good enough, but Bumblebee... Meh.

I was fortunate to find this item in Myer in Perth Western Australia for $59.99
Sadly, it didn't come with the dvd, but a full coloured bio booklet featuring the characters.
Starscream isn't out yet, so I was glad to get him early.
And having the First Edition version of Bumble Bee, even with the lame light Blue stripes and deep yellow colouring, is a plus.

One thing i don't get is, with all of the advanced technology hasbro has at their disposal for making their mass marketed marvel and star wars figures i wonder, why is it that only transformers bites the dusts and these new humans are reduced to overdetailed "Army Men" figures ?
Image
For those who don't remmeber army men it's green and tan soldiers who are completely immobile with no articulation and was common back in the 60's-90's as toys.

And Starscream/Screamer do your self a favor and get that paintjob fixed, it aint doing you any favors.
