Toys'R'Us Canada may have just listed the pre-orders for the Transformers: Age of Extinction Breakout Battle set, but fellow Seibertronian gema has it in-hand - and has shared a pictorial review of Rollbar (and some shots of Optimus too) with us! You can find the whole piece on his blog, and some of the images mirrored below.
He might not be a popular choice and I doubt a lot of collectors would be looking for him. However, aside from the lack of paint on his head (and should've been a different head altogather), Rollbar is somewhat interesting in his own way...especially if you are a mold collector.
And in further repaint exclusive news, check out the following video review from fellow Seibertron.com member grimdragon2001 of the Walmart exclusive two-pack of Bumblebee and Strafe, featuring a minor repaint of Legends Class Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen, and a blue version of Beast Wars Basic Terrorsaur!
Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com board member Primeultimus, we can share a whole list of pre-orders available from the Toys'R'Us Canada website for Transformers: Age of Extinction exclusive repaint sets, all set to be released in November! First up is the Autobots United set of five, featuring Voyagers Optimus and Hound and Deluxes Bumblebee, Drift and Crosshairs with tweaked colour schemes, at $129.99; then the Leader Optimus with trailer and Deluxe Sideswipe (using the RotF mold) at $179.99; next is the Breakout Battle set with Evasion Optimus in more or less rusty deco, a Vehicon repaint of DotM Deluxe Crankcase and a Sonic rallycar repaint of Generations Skids, for $69.99; followed by the chrometastic Dinobots Unleashed set, featuring Grimlock, Slog, Slug, Scorn and Strafe, at $129.99; and finally, the troublesome twosome, also dipped in chrome, Leaders Grimlock and Optimus Prime, for $119.99. Whew!
You think these galleries were born..? They were built - and now we're sharing them with you here on Seibertron.com. Turn your (gun) faces to witness the Deluxe class incarnations of Transformers: Age of Extinction Lockdown, in both the Hasbro Generations and Takara Tomy Movie Advanced Line AD-26 versions. Click on any image to view the full works. Warning: there may or may not be trophies within.
To help you all build up to the new week, in a constructive way, here is fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 with not one but two of his video builds and reviews! Featured this time are the Target exclusive ConstructBot Grimlock and Silver Knight Optimus Prime (a G2esque redeco of the mass retail set) and the more general release of ConstructBot Lockdown and Hangnail - including armour mode. Check both of them out in the embedded videos below!
While these are the same kits as the mass retail Grimlock and Prime their colors are changed to represent an unreleased G2 design and Target's Silver Knight theme respectively. Still a fun build and Dino Rider Prime has an included sword. Highly recommended.
Since most of the Beast Hunters Constructbots never saw a full retail release, at least in North America, for most of us the Age of Extinction sets are our first look at the new skeleton designs. Much like the Dinobots the vehicle builds, like Lockdown, feature a skeleton built by ball joints,armor attached by C-clips and a spring hinged back/chest for some slight automorph transformation. There has been some debate about whether or not these are improvements or just lateral changes. Lockdown is a fun build that features a more cohesive car mode while its dino armor partner Hangnail adds a fun new degree of interaction with the toy.
Sauropod Sunday, anyone? Join Seibertron.com in welcoming the latest gallery, featuring the Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Brontosaurus Sludge Brachiosaurus Slog, in all his red weaponed glory! Click on any of the images below to view the full gallery, which includes comparison shots with its G1 predecessor and the current Dinobot line-up.
Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest figure gallery:
Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Drift!
The figure is based off of the DOTM Skyhammer mold, but sports a blue and gold colorscheme, new weapons and a new head to bring you Drift in his third mode, a helicopter. The helicopter mode (and transformation to and from) were shown very briefly in this summer's TF film, Age Of Extinction. Considering the difficulties of taking a Bugatti Veyron and turning it into a robot AND a helicopter, a reuse of the Skyhammer mold was the next best possible plan.
Drift is partnered in the newest (and seemingly final) Voyager wave with Dinobot Slog.

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.
