We've seen in hand images of the upcoming first wave of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Warrior class already, but Seibertron.com user leokearon has shared another couple of comparison shots and packaging views - after having spotted Grimlock, Bumblebee, Strongarm and Steeljaw at Smyths in Ireland (priced at €16.99, approx $20)! They are also available on their online store, including Warriors, Legions and One-Step Changers, could this also mean they'll be hitting other European retailers soon? Let us know if you spot any across the world via our Sightings section and forums.
On the shelves, in hand, and comparison pics with Generations Deluxe Red Alert, Generations Legends Swerve and G1 Quickmix
We don't have an exact location, but it appears that some Toys'R'Us stores in the US have started stocking the One-Step Changers from the upcoming Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series. The photo proof below, of Strongarm, Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Underbite, comes via the Facebook group Transformers Addicts! and its member Richard Puente. If you spot any of these in your area, make sure to flag them up in the Sightings section and forums!
With the Age Of Extinction toyline coming to a close, news of finding new toys for it isn't exactly something you'd expect to see right now, but considering it's a Construct Bot set? Even more surprising. Well, that's exactly what we have to share with you today!
Now, we present the Wal*Mart exclusive Construct Bots Bumblebee with Strafe VS Decepticon Stinger set, found by Seibertron staffer ScottyP and he included an image, of course. Here's what he had to say on his find:
Oh look, something else I didn't know existed! Walmart exclusive AOE Construct Bots Bumblebee with Strafe vs. Stinger. BB Rider figure is a slight redeco. Strafe has a G2 style deco similar to the Target exclusive Grimlock Construct Bot but it's not a direct homage to a canceled toy like that one was.
Bought at a Walmart in Raleigh, NC for 19.98. UPC is 653569983408

Twincast podcaster ScottyP found a new Walmart exlcusive Mega 1-step Bumblebee with bonus Legends Class Stinger at a Walmart in Raleigh, NC for $24.97. According to ScottyP the stinger appears to be identical to the single carded Age of Extinction release but Bumblebee is visibly more yellow than his previous release. He also provided us with a nice image of his find which you can see below.
Seibertron member shajaki dropped us an email letting us know that he spotted the Autobots United 5 pack and the Breakout Battle set at retail in a Toys 'R' Us in Edmonton Canada. Time to head out to your local Canadian TRU if you have any interest in these sets. He also sent us a nice image of his find.

Fellow fan and Seibertron.com board member, NicholasPrime, has found the Kohl's exclusive Rescue Bots Optimus Prime Rescue Trailer at retail, and provided us the link so you can order one from the comfort of your home!
The price is $39.99 and it's available now
NicholasPrime wrote:In addition to the two-pack you guys reported earlier today, there is this large Rescue Bots piece:
Way back at Botcon we had a glimpse of a two pack being released containing the Smash and Change Optimus Prime along with Flip and Change Grimlock from Age of Extinction. This set has finally been sighted at a Kohl's store in Grand Blanc, Michigan by site owner Seibertron's dad Kevin Yzquierdo.
This set is another opportunity to grab these up if you missed these upon their first release, or if you're looking for a fun gift for the younger Transformers fan in your life this holiday. There don't appear to be any deco changes to either toy in this set, at least not to this Seibertronian! You can also order the set online for $44.99 at Kohls.com, however be warned that their sale price is actually higher than the retail price of buying these two separately at many other outlets.
