Hot on the heels of the earlier Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe retail sighting, we now have a report of the Leader class figures showing up as well. Instagram user andydbodine found Optimus Prime and Grimlock a Target in San Diego County. Again, the actual brick and mortar street date for these figures isn't until May 17th, they may not ring up properly during check out.

that picture has to be fake cause no TRU is ever that well stocked. now that i think of it thats probably why the AoE stuff was put out, the TF section was empty as usual and some new guy actually did their job.

Actually it has to do few things at toysrus and other retail store I work at retail store and every frozen toy always gets sold out we can't keep them on self, depends how early you get there, how many cases they have on truck to show up on shipment, and how popular they sell with kids right now frozen is popular with girls at toysrus toys not movie, and I forgot to mention some people buy some there collectors, sell on ebay, birthday partys, unlike Walmart with some people get there's early toys rus obeys rules Walmart care less Walmart could or already could have got fined for selling there transformer age of extiction figures before release date suppose to be out on box as stated

Walmart has the pegs for these things ready to go.

$15 for a deluxe. $25 for a voyager. This should be no load on your wallet if you are accustom to any other form of HIGHWAY ROBBERY.

What about my photographic evidence from a couple pages back? ;)


I'm mostly kidding since trying to pay for the ones pictured in mine actually got the product pulled from the shelves...

Morning,

My picture of the deluxes posted in this forum is not faked!! This was taken on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 at a very very old Toys R Us located in East Moline, Illinois. There was one box of AOE deluxes and one box of Dino Sparkers on the pegs. There was an excess of everything else in the store. You have to remember this is the midwest and we get the leftover crap from either coast most of the time. I'm sorry to say there are fewer Transformer enthusiasts in my area as well. I see a lot of Hotwheels guys and Mcfarlane guys, but only a couple of real Transformer Fans. This store is so outdated that the front has not been changed. The front still looks like Toys R Us when I was 8 years old and I'm 33 now. The Dino Sparkers were $9.99 and the Deluxes were $14.99. Here is a portion of the email I sent to El Duque this morning about how I was unable to purchase them thanks to a manager doing his job!


"Morning,

Sorry for late reply. I jumped the gun with email. I was in the process of checking out and cashier had just put in price manually when manager walked by. I wasn't able to get figures and they were pulled out of aisle. This was the Toys R Us in East Moline, Illinois. The deluxes would have been $14.99 each. Man are they tiny! I'll just have to wait for launch..."

Why did you feel the need to write an e-mail?
Re: Transformers: Age of Extinction Leader Class Sighted at Retail (1571653)
Posted by reluctantyouth on May 6th, 2014 @ 11:21am CDT
Because I had originally sent email to news@seibertron.com and El Duque emailed me back last night. I just visited the site now so I combined my post with part of the email. I'm just covering all bases.

The official Transformers Facebook page has revealed a whole set of previously unseen Transformers: Age of Extiction smaller toys. Well. We say unseen, but in fact, most of these new characters are repaints of pre-existing molds, spanning from Beast Wars to Energon to the 2007 live action movie and Transformers: Prime and Beast Hunters! The sets include: Bumblebee vs. Decepticon Stinger with Strafe Set, with Bumblebee being a repaint of 2007 Legends Class Bumblebee, and Stinger a repaint of Legion Class Prime Knock-Out; Legion class and Scout class Optimus Prime and Grimlock, repaints of the Revenge of the Fallen Legends Optimus Prime and Energon Doomlock; Legion class Grimlock, a repaint of Legion Beast Hunters Rippersnapper; Legion class and Scout class Dinobot Slug and Stinger, a repaint of Beast Wars Neo Guiledart and Prime Knock Out; Legion class and Scout class Strafe and Bumblebee, featuring a blue Beast Wars Terrorsaur and the 2007 Legends Bumblebee. These will apparently be figures exclusive to Wal*Mart - will you be hunting them down? Let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!

This right here is why Movie years rule. All kinds of awesome, out of left field product. Also, so much for all the Beast Wars basics molds being destroyed. Wonder what else is out there and still useable?

LOL more figures for my Beast Wars collection! I love it!

To quote ScottyP from the staff email, "They are waaaay outta left field."

I might get the Beast Era characters just so I can say I own at least one version of those molds. I've no need for Grim/Cruellock, since I already own the original.

HOLY SMOKING COW!!!!!!!

Give me those BW redecos and maybe the Energon Cruellock redeco! NOW!!!

Ok, so in a nutshell:

Bumblebee with Dinobot Strafe: RotF Legends Bumblebee and BW Terrorsaur.
Decepticon Stinger with Dinobot Slug: RotF Legends Sideways and BWNeo Guiledart
Optimus Prime with Grimlock: RotF Legends Optimus Prime and Energon Cruel-Lock
Legion Grimlock: Prime Beast Hunters Predacon Rippersnapper (again?)
Dinobot Strafe with Bumblebee and Decepticon Stinger: AoE Dinobot Strafe, RotF Legion Bumblebee and Prime Legion Knockout.

Good grief, so random... Definitely aiming for the first four sets.

*EDIT* I can't keep those Legion molds apart... :BANG_HEAD:

This movie toyline is more "Generations" than what we got as "Generations".

You guys - they should totally do Scorn out of BW Dinobot now. That would rock. Actually, give me all the AOE Dinobots as BW era molds. BW Megs as Grimlock? Yes please.

Basically, everyone buy the crap out of the BW mold packs so they'll make more of them :lol:

I'll definitely buy the Slug set cause I want me at least one copy of that Guiledart mold.
