Two fellow Seibertron.com users have spotted some previously unreported products from Transformers: Age of Extinction at US retail: BERSEKAEL found blankets and two types of backpacks at K-Mart (images below) while Cdavid3 took a quick shot of the Mega One-Step Bumblebee figure from Toys'R'Us - though we do not have locations for either sighting, unfortunately! Make sure to keep the sightings page updated to help out other fans and collectors, and check out the images below.

This is not a kids movie. I just don't get the level of merchandise targeted to kids.

To be technical neither was Batman with Michael Keaton, nor Jurassic Park at the standards then (obviously not now, then again look at TV now compare to today, shoot radio even); look at the merchandise those two movies put out. I was in 2nd grade when Jurassic Park came out, dads way to see if I were ready for the mayhem was letting me watch Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Joker killing that one guy in Batman was pretty gruesome. I had a lot of the batman toys, same with Jurassic Park, had model kits, and the gigantic jaw breaker that came like a necklace.

^This comment pretty much sums up everything that is wrong with the Transformers fandom these days. It's a movie based on a series of KID'S TOYS. The main reason these movies are being made is to sell KID'S TOYS. Hasbro's main demographic is KIDS. What part of that do you not understand?

With that latest piece of news about Mega One-Step Bumblebee, let's take a look at its smaller cousin in the Age of Extinction Robots in Disguise line, courtesy of Seibertron.com member and regular reviewer chuckdawg1999! Check out the embedded clip below.

Yeah, the abnormality here isn't that the film's merchandise is being marketed to kids, it's that the movie meant to sell to kids wasn't kid-friendly.

I mean, what's next, an R-rated Sesame Street movie that misses the point of that show?

Ebay seller lena81822 has listed a bunch of what are listed to be 'Transformers 4 AOE Leader Class Optimus Prime Test/Unpainted versions'.

From the photos in the Ebay listing we see a grey coloured 'test shot' of the Leader scaled Optimus Prime with grey shield and clear sword.

The listed figures are all being auctioned apart from one which has a Buy It Now for £83.02!

Kids dont really like "kid-friendly" stuff. They want to feel older, like they are getting away with something. They like things that feel like they are not supposed to be watching it.

It's why MTV's major demographic is 12-16.

that said, I actually love this little guy. I thought about getting one for my son...but I may have to pick me up one too. Kinda neat.

Speak for yourself. I hated MTV at Age 12-16, and I still hate it.

Fox Kids, Kids WB, 4Kids TV, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Toon Disney were my main things at Age 12-16.

lol. I agree with you. I hated MTV. However, I do not think we are or were typical kids. At least we would not be today.

My point is, that kids like to feel older than they are. A good example of this was when the Avenger's toyline was out. The commercials for the role play toys were all kids 16 and older. Possibly 17. Kids like that. It makes them feel like what they do is mature, and thus, important.

Looks fake to me. The grey seems oddly inconsistent from part to part. Probably just had the paint scraped off and the plastic was painted/dyed grey.

But what about that solid translucent sword and windows colored clear instead of yellow? How would they extract the color from the plastic?

What inconsistencies? The color looks pretty uniform to me. Also, do you realize how hard it is to remove paint in a way that won't damage the figure? It's especially improbable on a figure of that size.

I would have thought they'd just take the parts and make clear resin recasts of them. Recasting in resin is a very quick and easy way of duplicating parts, and is very common with counterfeits/knockoffs. It happens a lot with model miniatures and scale garage kits. And clear resin is hardly difficult to come by.

And this is assuming it isn't a photoshop, of course.

I mean, it COULD be the real deal, but I'm always wary of things claiming to be test shots. I know a lot of really rare toys and prototypes have been sold online only to turn out to be fakes/recasts- it happens a lot within the Jumbo Machinder fanbase/market.

Eh, I dunno. I'm always paranoid about these things, especially after nearly buying a fake Animated Arcee.

Well, lena usually seems to get figures straight from the factory. It's possible that some Chinese factory worker is cranking out unauthorized copies when nobody's looking.
Actually, a lot of these "test shots" and other high quality KOs seem to be created that way.

Sabrblade - I know but I figured if there was something going on like that someone on here might know about it and this is the only place I've made an account so I can post comments (I don't feel like going through the whole signing up process on another site just to ask one question). And yes I clicked on it but couldn't find out anything. I saw comments but they weren't talking about the "R.I.P. AOE toylin" topic.

Looking at the topic in question, the "R.I.P." isn't pertaining to the AOE toyline dying. It's referring to how the guy who first made the post was so disappointed by the AOE toy news given at SDCC that the line is essentially dead to him.

The Walmart Exclusive is already out in Canada. The Slash there is just equally as hard to come by too.
Slash, hmm? That's interesting, because west of Detroit I see plenty of him, but Scorn's almost vanished because wave 1's already come and gone.

As for these exclusives, it's about bloody time! Toys'R'Uses have begun dismantling their Grimlock gateways, so I was starting to think WalMart was taking the unorthodox strategy of holding their exclusives back until the AofE DVD release.

I've been around all the main Asda stores locally and have only seen them in Asda Living, the department store version.

I bought one. I'm tired of waiting on BBTS, I'd have to go to the trouble of returning the rest of the assortment (since I don't want duplicates), plus The Chosen Prime is an excellent store to deal with, so it was a no brainer, for me.

As always thanks for a great review!

I'm torn with this mold. I'm not getting the regular release as the Amazon one is pre-ordered. I'm just not sure I like it. The gorilla arms are a major bummer. I am glad to see some bulk in this figure though.

The soft rubber usage is atrocious and wish the stupid red spikes on his back were left out.

I'm wondering if they can be cut off or melted in some way as to not destroy the entire piece. Lopping them off with a pair of scissors is not going to work. :-?

Slog's tail in robot mode needs to tab or fold down on his legs. It just looks as bad as the feathers covering the groin on Slash.

Does anyone know if the stores in SC should have the wave 2 toys by now? Because if the line is only going to the end of the year, that's not much time to get all of them out considering we've got wave 3 and a bunch of platinum sets.

Walmart.com has the AOE Deluxe Strafe with legends Bumblebee and Stinger set up for pre-order. Expected release date is August 25th. By the way, did anyone know about the Constructbots set of Strafe with Dino Rider Bumblebee and Stinger (new head)?
