Strange... Perhaps they'll pop up in America?

I hope that means America is coming next... I really don't care for any of them except the Wheeljack, but I don't want to pay the $$$ for it as it is now. But if it's at my local TRU, heck yeah!

It's a BBTS exclusive in the US, guys. In other countries, exclusive assortments like this one are fair game for stores.

I've gotta say, I dig some of these figures a LOT...

We get TFPrime: Slicer, Goldbug, and Skywarp.
I'm imagining "goldbug" looking especially goldbug-y if you own a FE bumblebee instead of the PRID :)


anyone feel as though green knock-out homages anyone? i couldn't think of any

If you're considering a head-swap, the FE and RID Bumblebee's have opposing ball joint attachments between their heads and bodies.

FE: ball joint neck is on the body, which the head attaches to.
RID: ball joint neck is on the head, which the body attaches to.

Can't say I care for any of them, but that's all and good. Lol. Makes it easier to keep my money where it should be - in my wallet.

Nah i just meant that if you have FE bumblebee instead of PRID, standing next to "goldbug" will make him look more like a different character since youll have: FE BB next to ur DE goldbug, instead of a PRID BB next to DE GB which would look more like hes just bumblebee in weird colors.

Having FE BB + goldbug just makes them look more like different characters is all i meant :)

Bingo. Plus, if I'm remembering correctly, these were commissioned by Wal*Mart and then they backed out. BBTS to the rescue.

Really? I did not know that. Typically Walmart to back out on exclusives, a habit 10 years in the making. :lol:
