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 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)?

Stinger does not appear to have a new head, unfortunately.

Hmm, I know it uses the same Bumblebee head from the set, but that head doesn't look like the one from the single pack Dino Rider.

I am more and more puzzled by the fact that there is no announcement of that specific lost age easy Optimus coming to North America. He seems integral to the line over there being at it's forefront. Then again, they are not advertising for the small one step optimus. And it wouldnt be for redundancy, since they have 2 grimlocks. Something odd is going on with all this.

None, that's what is crazy. There is no planned Hasbro release for the tent pole figure from the Lost Age Easy line. That boggles my mind. It seems this whole line is based on the toys' play factor of which there are 2. There is the instant transformation and the interaction with other figures. The lack of LA01 in North America makes the line almost pointless since it denies certain the play factor of these toys (such as them being the right size to store in a trailer).

I am not complaining as a collector (I wouldnt buy any of these anyway) but I am really puzzled and curious at the business angle. It seems Hasbro was far more involved with the gimmicky flip and change transformers while Takara preffered the interaction factor. hasbro just seems to be going at it in a very half assed way. I am sure they would sell much more of the easy transformers to kids if they had that LA01 to go with it.

I would have guessed mybe a christmas release but we should have had some word of it by now with all the recent cons.

Has there been any announcement if some of the Lost Age deluxes that are being released in Japan will make over here to the US, Wheeljack, Soundwave, Dino, and Dispensor? It just seems that this movie toy line has been real light on figures, that we know of, no counting all the recolored story exclusives. Also are there plans for more Decepticons other than Galvatron and Lockdown?

Nope and nope.

For the former, those toys were added to the Movie Advanced line as both filler and as a tribute to the past three films.

For the latter, the AOE line is only going to last till the end of this year, and there really weren't a lot of named bad guy robots in this movie what with Cemetery Wind being the main antagonist group. Lockdown was the man robot villain, but not a Decepticon. Galvatron was more of a plant for the next movie, and the KSI robots were just fodder.

Yeah I knew Lockdown is technically not a Decepticon, just did not want to say if for the few people that may not have seen the movie yet and did not want spoilers. But I figured they would at least do Stinger and maybe the dump truck since that mold was shown awhile ago, think it was an earth day announcement from Takara.

So is lockdown his own wave or is he packed with other figures? Hes obviously not in slashes wave cause that just started to arrive here & no lockdown. Also target has had deluxes on sale for 2 weeks now, i reported it but no one seemed to care.

Lockdown should have been a leader class. That deluxe is OK but his arms are to long and his head is a bit Silver-surfer for my liking. Still plan on picking him up.

J. Howard Christ!

10 bucks for a Lockdown?

Deluxes cost 27 euro's in The Netherlands, that's 36 dollars!
Voyagers use to cost that much in the Armada Days.

Dafuq is going on in Europe?

+ we probably won't even see Lockdown in stores.

Seriously, You americans are lucky.

Generations has always been expensive here, if you can even find them! I've only seen wave 1 of the FoC series, and the prices were already nothing to sneeze at: €25!

You are absolutely right. We tend to take it for granted and forget the plights of other fans. We need to be more thankful for what we do have and quit complaining as much as we do.

But can't they be more like 4-step changers?

I feel the pain bro, good thing we have great import shops.
But the feeling of just walking into a toystore and buying the TF you've been waiting for is special. Not the UPS guy ringing the doorbell 3 days later than expected.
