Walmart- A poster at TFW2005 has found both Universe Dinobot and Universe Smokescreen at retail in a Walmart in North Carolina.

The poster, raltherr, states that he was able to purchase both toys although there was difficulty with Smokescreen. Apparently, he was not in the computer yet.

"I found Universe Smokescreen and Dinobot in a local Wal-mart today. I didn't think they were due until March. When I brought them to the register Dinobot rang up fine. Smokescreen was not in their system. After about 45 minutes the manager rang up the Smokescreens as TFA Bumblebees. Then they pulled the remaining stock off the pegs. I'm not sure if this was a mistake with Hasbro sipping early or Wal-marts distribution. But they have been purchased by me in North Carolina. I have attached a few pics. One is in Wal-mart, the other is in my house. I didn't scan the receipt because Smokescreen wouldn't ring up anyway. And I don't want to get anybody at Wal-mart in trouble if they weren't supposed to sell them."

Smokescreen UPC: 653569376057

Dinobot UPC: 563569371007

TF Club reveals a few new images of the upcoming Knock Out figure from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen toy line. Just after first seeing Roll Bar in-package a few days ago, we may now see Knock Out and his bio here.

And for you’re reading convenience, his bio may also be read below:

Though he is an incredibly flashy and skilled fighter, KNOCK OUT is also desperately insecure. He practices awesome combat maneuvers constantly in private to be sure that the other AUTOBOTS will notice him on the battlefield. His highest ambition is to be the leader of a special combat team, and to get the combination retrofit everyone has been talking about.

Thanks to some friends of mine I was able to get my hands on the Universe Wave 4 Deluxe figures about a month or so before they hit the big three here in Canada. Much to my surprise and happiness the new figures are on unique cards with individual card art on the front and tri-lingual bio's on the back. This was hinted at by Hasbro Canada this past year at TFCon in Ontario.

Well who cares you might ask? Mexico, Quebec and the rest of Canada. That's who.

For almost two years we've been backed into a corner so to speak when it comes to our hobby of collecting Transformers. For all of you in the States or across the sea you get clean, character focused box and card art. The three mentioned above get very generic packaging and has slowly slipped down a slope of quality to the point of no images on the boxes other then cross-sells on the back as seen here in an old news article from when Wave 1 was released in Canada.

Here are a few pictures, albeit blurry of two of the four new figures on their new tri-lingual packages. This is indeed a great treat for Transformers Collectors that keep figures MISB/MOSC or hold on to the boxes after opening the figures much like myself.

Here's to a great 2009 to our friends collecting Transformers with the new and improved packaging!

Botcon.com- Brian Savage, Transformers Collector's Club Director and Organizer, updates us with more information about Botcon 2009, this time hotel accommodations and convention center information.

Happy New Year!

We are excited to officially announce that you can now make your reservations for BotCon '09 online.

To make your hotel reservations, go to BotCon.com and follow the link to the Sheraton Pasadena Hotel.

BotCon '09 will be at the new Pasadena Convention Center. The Sheraton is attached to the center. Hotel rooms will go very quickly and they have a limited number of rooms with double beds so next week we will have a second hotel block available at a near by property that has additional double bed rooms.

We will send out another update after we receive the electronic reservation link.

It will be several weeks before we have the registration forms available so keep checking BotCon.com for future updates!

Thanks and see you there!

Brian
