Catching up on all the sightings that fellow Seibertronians have been sending the staff (make sure to flag them up in the Sightings section and forums too!), here's a later Age of Extinction one: Nikko Radio Controlled Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Sightings come from Target stores in Michigan, via xRotorstormx, and Illinois, via reluctantyouth [and via myself in the UK, Toys'R'Us] prices at $49.99 each, require additional batteries and transform at the touch of a button - photo proof below!
Continuing in his video review streak, fellow Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 brings us another Age of Extinction Power Battler toy to look at, and it's Optimus Prime's turn! See what he has to say about this multilimbed, sword-wielding figure below.
When early promo pics of this figure surfaced I knew I had to get it in hand. They thought of an Optimus Prime with 4 hands just sounded cool. With a sword slashing action that looks like it belongs in the Masters of the Universe line Prime is a fun figure that's an all around cool toy.
Members of the Transformers Columbia Facebook group are reporting a special Transformers: Age of Extinction/Oreo promotion. Specially marked packages of Oreos contain sticker albums and a code. The codes can be entered in the Oreo Promotional website to receive a Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe. So far it appears to only be Wave 1: High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Slug, and Scorn. The figures come in special box with 32 stickers. No word on a domestic version of this promotion.
Yahoo! Movies has posted a new interview with Kelsey Grammer in which he describes one his scenes that was ultimately cut from Transformers: Age of Extinction. It was an action scene where his character, Harold Attinger, would have thrown a Chinese national from a moving vehicle.
It was very violent, and it looked very violent.… Apparently the Chinese government had some input on these things, and they just didn’t want to see a Chinese national get thrown out of the car [laughs] — and then subsequently run over.
He also talks about filming with director Michael Bay.
They start running, and Michael did not let them know how big the explosions were going to be. He said to me, ‘Watch this! Look! They’re really terrified. Look how fast they’re running!
The interview goes on to discuss his other projects, which include The Expendables 3, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and more. You can read the full article by clicking here.
Seibertron.com member ScottyP has found the newest wave (Wave 2) of Kreons at a local TRU in Raleigh, NC. He even included an image of his haul to share with us, we've mirrored the image below. The assortment includes Bumblebee in his new Camaro design, as well as Hound, Crosshairs and Galvatron!

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
Earlier today, we reported that Seibertron, himself, found the newly released Wal*Mart AOE exclusives at a local store in the Chicagoland area, which you can see here.
Seibertron has taken the time to make a Mini gallery of these items, in packaging, so we can get their UPC info. Why, you ask? Because these are part of Wal*Mart's upcoming seasonal reset and most, if not all stores, have these sitting in the back room awaiting a chance to be stocked on shelves and pegs. However, since they're on hand and active in the computer, you can buy them now. With the aid of the UPC info, the toy department associate can help you get them out of the back. (However, not every employee will be able to or be willing to help, so be polite when asking and try someone else if they won't. Manners go a long way in the collector world.)
NOTE: Sometimes Wal*Mart's computer system modifies the UPC for internal stock keeping purposes. If the full UPC doesn't work, give the UPC with the last number removed. The computer should be able to recognize it, then.
Seibertron.com user Bounti76 reports a sighting from the Walmart in Layton, Utah, and it's the Cyberverse repaints part of the Age of Extinction exclusives line!

Make sure to flag up any of your own sightings in the appropriate section and forums, too!
