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

Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com user iguanabytes, we can confirm that the Transformers Generations Voyager Brainstorm figure is now available for pre-order at the official Hasbro Toy Shop website. They are currently pricing the Headmaster toy at $19.99, with the earliest release/delivery date on 9th December - will you be buying it from them? Will you be buying it at all? Let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!
A genius scientist and diabolical inventor, Brainstorm develops advanced weaponry for the Autobots. Although many of his inventions are deemed too devastating for use in actual combat, it's possible his laboratory itself is his most dangerous creation. Brainstorm frequently ignores proper safety protocols, and an unwary visitor to his lab runs a high risk of triggering some half-finished doomsday weapon. In spite of this, he is allowed to continue his work, proof of just how valuable Brainstorm is to the Autobot cause.
Gear up for hardcore Transformers action with this awesome 2-in-1 Brainstorm figure! This crazy Autobot can launch a fierce double-fisted blaster attack at his Autobot enemies in robot mode. But if the mission calls for fast-flying recon, he can convert to jet mode. Keep converting him back and forth so his enemies can't keep up!
Figure comes with accessories.
Incredible 2-in-1 Brainstorm figure
Converts from robot mode to jet mode
Head converts to pilot

We were just contacted by a law firm on behalf of Marlboro & Phillip Morris USA. They informed us that the MP-23 Exhaust figure infringes on their trademark and trade dress for products marketed and sold in the USA.
The mark in question is generally shaped like this:
This mark is found on the hood/roof of the MP-23 car in red, and also in smaller green shapes on the left and right fenders. They are concerned because these marks cannot be used on products that could be intended for children as dictated by the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tobacco_Ma ... _Agreement).
We must comply with the requests they have made in order to avoid legal action with Phillip Morris. We have removed the MP-23 listing from our website. Your preorders have been transferred to a generic unpublished listing in case the product is changed or modified before release and would no longer be infringing. If the product is not changed, we will cancel all preorders and we will not be able to sell this product.
Import site Anime-Export has revealed their preorder listings of the upcoming RID toyline and they've also provided release dates and toy images. Unfortunately the images are not the best quality, but they do give us our first look at the Fixit figure.
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.
