Browsing down their lists of Transformers figures I spotted listings for upcoming items from what I believe to be part of the immenent Age of Extinction line with a twist.
Transformers Grimlock - Then and Now
Transformers Dinobot Slug - Then and Now
Transformers Strafe - Then and Now
Transformers Bumblebee - Then and Now
The Toys R Us assistant confirmed there are prices against each one but wasn't allowed to quote the prices as they where subject to changes, but confirmed the Grimlock Then and Now was considerably more than the other three.
