Dear god, even the Kreon version of Crosshairs couldn't get his duster coat right? #-o

I take it you've never had the pleasure of playing with building bricks? Lego in particular? :x

Customizing, man, customizing. Hasbro doesn't bother with the Dinobots? FEH! I'll make my own!

Ironically I find these custom sets a bit lacking. The weapons and clips and other not-Kreon parts are amazing, but I'm not sure what to do with the long arms, clear torsos, or chrome helmets. How many Transformer characters need those?

Members of the Transformers Columbia Facebook group are reporting a special Transformers: Age of Extinction/Oreo promotion. Specially marked packages of Oreos contain sticker albums and a code. The codes can be entered in the Oreo Promotional website to receive a Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe. So far it appears to only be Wave 1: High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Slug, and Scorn. The figures come in special box with 32 stickers. No word on a domestic version of this promotion.

interesting. But could be even more if they could work on cyberverse toys, I have seen already too many little updates on this same molds.

Well, that is true. Also, there's BAPE Prime, J-pop Prime, and god knows how many more product-placement-Primes.

There's scores across the board. I've become desensitized to product placement, even in games, like Pepsiman or Spot goes to Hollywood. Only problem with this promotion I can see is that I'm not a massive fan of Oreos.

The only problem with this promotion that I see is that it's not coming to america and canada ;)

That would also be a major problem :P though from wave 1 all I want is Scorn.Crosshairs, I wonder about that cape of his that appears to be the shell of his car alt.

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.

[quote]]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.[/quote]

He does look pretty cool compared to the other Power Battlers. At least he is proportionate. I wouldn't hold out for retail though, seeing as the Power Battlers are up there with Dino Sparkers as "stuff that hasn't moved since release". All my local stores are still packed with wave 1. I did see a Scorn (Wave 2)at Target, who doesn't seem to have made such a large initial order of this stuff as Walmart did. Same goes for 1-Steppers. They have culled the hundreds of 1-Steppers at Walmart, but there are still ALOT left. I think the later waves of Power Battlers and 1-Step are going to be what we see at TJ Max and the like this Christmas.

totally...........WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the best representation of the dinobots in movie accuracy. only thing is.. why is slog released in a way that reminds me of his regular voyage variant? they wasted a good opportunity for slash to appear in the grayish colour/ stupid colourful mix :-( ?

but still they have my damn money :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I was thinking that too hence why I jumped on it off of Amazon. The later waves are up there for pre-order now too.

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!

Thanks for the included news credit on these...thought I posted it a couple of weeks ago. The two at my Target have not budged in 3 weeks. The Transformer section is looking very poor too. No Generations of any kind...what happened to Target :sad: ?!? I use to be able to count on them quite a bit.
