Want to get started on your Transformers Prime collection but annoyed at the limited availability? Well that seems about to change with Toys R Us listing Bumblebee for sale on their online store! For only 12.99, he can be yours! Is this the first listing of many or is his solo listing due to the over-packing of the figure in the First Wave case lots? Only time will tell...

Bumblebee can be found here!

its clear to me at least that theyre slowly running out of ideas for the camaro-ish transformation into bb from looking at that horrible looking figure.

Personally I don't have anything against this figure. Just don't like the fact Hasbro decided to shut Bumblebee's mouth again.

Yes. The line is supposed to be called Transformers Prime Robots In Disguise and will have red and white packaging. Starting in March and will continue beyond that.

All the "First Edition" waves will receive a limited release in the U.S. retail this year (one Toys 'R' Us source says "December 1st"), while the later main line "Robots in Disguise" waves won't be coming to mass retail until March.

The "First Edition" figures include Deluxes Arcee, Starscream, Bumblebee, and Cliffjumper, Voyagers Optimus Prime and Bulkhead, and the Entertainment Pack.

The "Robots in Disguise" figures include Deluxes Terrocon Cliffjumper, Vehicon, Wheeljack, Bumblebee (new mold), Cliffjumper (new mold), Soundwave, Knock Out, and Ratchet, Voyagers Skyquake and Starscream, and whatever else comes out.

Not sure about which subline any of the Cyberverse figures will be a part of.

And, yes, by "limited release" I do mean that the First Edition figures are gonna be hard to find. Some stores may not even get any of them.

Personally, I think he talked enough in the G1 series. I'd just as soon he stayed shut up.

I like this figure a lot. THey did a great job of representing the show.

I don't mind either way, I think he sounds like the RD-D2 of Transformers in this form ;)

If/when Bumblebee speaks in this show, I really really REALLY want them to get Johnny Young Bosch to voice him again. He voiced BB in War for Cybertron and, not only would it help the continuity, but I LOVED JYB's Bumblebee voice. He was a GREAT Bumblebee. Youthful, but not too young. Serious, but not too serious. Lively, but not hyper. Cool, but not too much slang. He was just superb! 8)

Didn't see this with a quick glance, but Arcee and Starscream are at TRU online as well.

NVM - 14 minutes too late. A shame my bosses called me away from my desk.

Toysrus.com has now listed the Transformers Prime "First Edition" Deluxes Starscream and Arcee. These two along with yesterday's Bumblebee are all showing as in-stock and ready to ship! Hopefully Cliffjumper, the Entertainmant pack, and Voyagers aren't far behind.

Went to a TRU store closest to me yesterday and they still have tons of ROTF stuffs.

right now out of all the TF prime figures being released in late 2011. I'm only gonna buy voyager sized bulkhead & voyager sized optimus prime.

Thus far in early 2012,i'm only interested & will only be buying voyager sized skyquake & voyager sized starscream.

if they ever make a leader sized or supreme sized TF Prime Unicron,then I'd buy this in a heart beat.

I don't really like the TF Prime megatron animation designs. i'm definately not impressed with the deluxe tf prime megatron toy. I haven't seen the voyager megatron toy yet for TF Prime. I'm hoping megatron in the TF Prime gets a upgraded new form & a new leader sized toy to show off this form. it would be kinda cool to get that season 4 animated maruader megatron tripple changer toy.

as far as the deluxe toys for TF Prime goes,I don't like any thus far. I was thinking about buying the vechicon & taking off the robot head & replacing it with a ROTF Lockdown robot head.

I don't like the TF Prime animated arcee designs. the robot head looks too simplistic,too friendly & aimed towards toddlers. I think the TF 2007 movie arcee deluxe toy is a better looking & more mature looking toy.

Hopefully later on,they make a zombie version of TF Prime Skyquake with battle damage paint.

I'm really looking forward to the rumored TF Prime Combiners & dinobots toys. I'm also hoping Primus gets a few more episodes. I want all these I listed in this last paragraph as TF Prime toys,I'll buy them all.

Starscream, with those sexy sexy curves.

I'm serious. If I get him, I may have to repurpose him as Slipstream.

I went to TRU yesterday too, and they had a bunch of ROTF figures that I haven't seen in a long time, including Skids and Mudflap, Dead End, and Desert Brawl. Weird. They've also got a bunch of MP Roddys still warming the shelf, several Generations figures, and even a Leader Ironhide that's been sitting there for a week or more.

No Prime toys, though.

I'm tempted to order Starscream online, but I don't want to pay shipping for a figure that I'll probably be able to find in-store soon, and I can't come up with enough stuff to be eligible for free shipping ($50 min). I already have BB and Arcee (in their NYCC incarnations) so I'm not interested in those.

Really? The Prime figures don't count as BOGO 50% Off? That sucks

Posted by datguy86 on November 18th, 2011 @ 11:43am CST
Bear in mind the sale is trying to get rid of older movie/generations toys. I hope it succeeds - more room for Sky Shadow/Junkheap packs, and TF Prime figures, of course.

Of course not. The point of the BOGO sale is to get rid of old inventory. Why would they have a BOGO sale on new semi-exclusive figures that are going to be in high demand?

Well, Kind of annoyed that I jumped on BB yesterday and filled my cart to get the free shipping, with other randoms... then they add Starscream the next day.

That may well be the intent but instore the signing says all transformers deluxe figures. If you are lucky enough to find these in a store already you could argue your way into the sale.

Hmm... That's a good point. I wonder if they'll remove those sale signs when they put the Prime figures on the shelf, or replace them with signs that indicate the sale only applies to DOTM Deluxes.

Well, i did it with the BOGO today. The sales tag in TRU said "ALL deluxe transformer figure are BOGO 50% off". Since they are Deluxe, so i got it lol, although i have to talk to the store manager.

It would have to be of his original form befroe being defeated by the Thirteen, since his current form is noncorporeal.

Becuase, as of now, there is none.

Which, as I told you before, won't happen since it was scrapped before completion.
