Beast wars is my favorite TV series, but in terms of what it had, which was good comedy and good action with fresh characters, the comics have delivered just the same and are generally more mature. Also beast wars toys were not that great. The series did not make that much of a deep mark on me.

I guess this is another reason to why I kind of have a great deal of inner hatred for this entire fandom. You all have a tendency to obsess over characters or specific altmodes, regardless of what series they are in or how genuinely good a figure is. You also have a tendency to desire MOAR regardless of the circumstances or what it is you're actually getting. Like I said, some of you guys just collect anything. Granted them dinobots look pretty good, I just don't want them because they're part of something that disgusts me deeply, and I have plenty of good toys already.

Seriously I don't care if all we get is a trickle. The few figures we've gotten during this time are frigging amazing. I'd rather be able to save money for my other hobbies anyway. At least that way things are planned and stores actually bother to order stuff that I want. After the hype is over there will be a disgusting amount of shelf warming for years to come.

Also no. It's literally impossible for this movie to bomb. I know how this works. It may have bombed if it didn't have dinobots in it, but it has dinobots in it. I know how you guys work and I know how kids work. It will be a hit. It is logical.


so why are you here?.. why bother even looking at movie related news? .. i don't understand.

also.. i'm excited for this line.. but not as excited as i've been for previous lines. and there certainly aren't any figures that jump out at me as being awesome like there have in previous movie lines.

also.. this thing (the movies) that disgusts you so much is also providing valuable cash flow for hasbro to produce the stuff that you want.. so maybe show just a little respect to the movies.. you don't have to like them, just acknowledge what they've done for the franchise.

I've really heard this argument too many times. Movie toy news is my concern because once the movie toys start rolling in it results in other announced toys being impossible to find or some waves even being cancelled. This just doesn't bother anyone other than me I guess. At this point I see it being those horrible constructbots ruining my days for the next three years. Also there's some obligatory BB and primes on the way as well. Good times ahead.

Also a lot of you are on about all the good complex toys brought to the table by previous movies, when an awful lot of the stuff shown so far really doesn't look as good to me, and I did pick up some movie toys in the past because of how good they were. The Dinobots do look good but really not enough so for me to buy them, like with Bludgeon and Mindwipe.

First of all, this is not the best looking Optimus Prime in the movies. The blue is too overwhelming. Second, the toys are simple, it should not take you 20-25 minutes to transform a Transformer. Maybe you should play with the One-Step Changers first before you tamper with the Leader Class toys.

Hey folks!

I also found AoE figures at my local Kmart today! I picked up Voyager Grimlock, and Deluxe Scorn, Slug, Strafe, and Crosshairs. (If anyone's interested in photos, I will gladly post; just don't want to clog the comments or waste my time if no one's interested.) Grimlock and Strafe rang up just fine, but the other three alerted the cashier to their violation of street date. However, the supervisor on duty didn't get it, so he just had the cashier ring the other three through as additional Strafes, since they appeared similar enough (even though Strafe is in a smaller "Ages 6+" packaging, rather than the slightly larger "Ages 8+" packaging on the other three). No complaints here! :D

Good luck on the hunt everyone!

I will always be excited where the Dinobots are concerned. Anything else (Galvatron as a truck?) can go hang itself, but even if AoE Grimlock doesn't look like Grimlock, he's still a Dinobot, and I'm sure I can come up with a fitting name/backstory to justify him standing next to MP Grimlock.

Really most excited by Scorn, though. Slug's swords look cool, too.

I'd prefer G1 colors, but I realize now that I'd end up buying every paint iteration anyway, so I might as well be happy to get these and hope for silver and gold nearer to Christmas.

Back when I started collecting, my HFTD Leader OP... It took me 1:30h transforming the damn thing. WITH instructions! What more, there were still a gap on the hood. Only one or two years later did ÉI figured that to remove the gap, you have to rotate the fists just so.

Now, I can transform the thing without instructions in about 15 minutes without instructions. And that include fiddling with the Buster gun.

Forgot to add, after seeing the "review" of Leader Optimus, I will surely get him. Not at full price, mind you, but on a reasonable sale.
Maybe Leader Grimlock too, but onlu if he's on clearance.

you don't think i'm annoyed that the generations figures have been side tracked all this time leading up to the release of the movie line?.. i am. but i'm not going to go on a thread about reviews and sightings of movie toys and say something.

so.. any toy news is your concern because it pushes generations aside.. and you need to state that opinion every time news or a new thread is started about the movie toys?

maybe i'm alone on this, but i like each line of the toys.. they're new, they're something we haven't seen before, and sometimes it's refreshing to get something new. now, after a long time of these things sitting on the shelves forever, i'll be bored and i'll start wanting something new again.

also, you can't really complain about generations stuff being cancelled, i can't recall many generations figures that have been flat out cancelled or unreleased, but i sure as hell can think of a whole bunch of movie figures, that A LOT of people wanted, being cancelled.

from the sounds of it, the generations figures will be running concurrently with the movie figures.. how many of those will get a wide release and how plentiful they'll be is a mystery as of now. but i'm almost positive they'll be easy to acquire online.

if you're going to complain about anything, you should complain about the figures themselves rather than the affect it has on the generations toys.

with how huge grimlock has appeared in the trailers and how formidable he looks.. his leader toy falls REALLY short of that. it's not huge, hell it's not even as tall as previous leaders. and don't get me started on the t rex mold.. it's literally the worst t rex mode we've ever seen. anyone who looked at it and said "looks great, lets start making them" is an absolute moron. i mean, it looks like he just got done being tortured on a rack. i mean, if they can get the voyager looking relatively normal, how is it that the leader looks ridiculous? i REALLY hope that this thing is under $30 at retail, anything more is criminal. i mean, look at the height and mass compared to previous leader figures.. it's atrocious. they're basically saying goodbye to their established leader scale, downsizing and simplifying. personally, i think it's going to blow up in their faces, and with a $45 price tag, i think there's a good chance of that happening.

i do think there are some good aspects to most of the figures, even leader grimlock, most of his robot mode looks fairly nice, but those aspects are negated by horrific color choices. the chrome and goldish orange look terrible. and the other toys are worse, the dinobots specifically. it's sad that i'm going to have to paint this entire line myself.

lastly, you speak of the construct bots.. but what's worse is all of these one step changers, or these figures with push button transformations, or the stupid spinning grimlock.. ALL of that crap combined with the construct bots and the mashers are going to sit for so long and with that, i agree with you. it's just simply awful. and to stop making human alliance figures for this other crap has REALLY pissed me off. i mean, the human alliance figures have been some of the best figures we've gotten out of the movies period. but no, they want to produce all of this other crap that's going to sit forever. maybe they thought the human alliance figures weren't selling.. well, lets see, maybe it was because WAVE 1 WAS A REPAINT OF BUMBLEBEE AND SKIDS!!... and those sat for so long, they probably figured that they weren't selling. and then they had the gall to not find a way to release soundwave and mudflap. it's unbelievable.

anyways. i agree with you that the toy line isn't great.. but i disagree about generations and your stance on how your (collecting) life is ruined because of the movie toys and bringing that up here.

Today I was able to add it back to my cart and checkout with it... (Page for the item is 404ing... But the product was still able to be in my cart...)

Says I should have him May 14th. There is no way Leader Class is $26! So huge steal on that...

So, $16.50 for deluxes at Walmart? I suppose I shouldn't be shocked, but somehow actually seeing the tag drives it home.

As much as I love Dinobots, I may have to wait for a sale. I suffer from that horrible condition of being old enough to remember how much I paid for characters like Inferno and Transmetal Megatron during Beast Wars...

Amazon has these with a May 11th street date which is a Sunday and Mother's Day. That makes sense since with Prime 2 day shipping you would get them on Tuesday the 13th official roll out day.

I am surprised they didnt have Bumblebee.
For anyone interested that is near the Montreal (Canada) area, some AoE toys have been available for close to a month now at specialty toy store "Toys on Fire" (you will only find them in store, not on their website). They have the 2 voyagers along with deluxe Slug, Scorn, Crosshairs and Bumblebee.

Along with your confirmation of many of the same characters I would guess that this pretty much makes up the first wave of toys we will get in May. They dont have Strafe but he was under a different code in your store so I do not know if he counts as being part of the same wave.

I guess that means that Hound, Drift, Slash and the Decepticons wont be issued till later. But I can be wrong of course.

Just checked Amazon, the date moved to Monday the 12th or I read it wrong in the first place. More importantly most of the items are now listed as no longer available, either they were pulled or something else happened. FYI check prices as they've got a few of the one step figures listed as Used since some of the packaging may be damaged.

This is by no means a desirable toy to me. I am just making a sarcastic comment because the movie leader and voyager class Grimlock both look horrible in Dino mode. Despite the big clown hands and feet catered to kids, this Grimlock is well proportioned and has the best looking Dino mode compared to the other two IMO.

I just noticed something and if anyone can confirm or add to this, it would be most welcome.

I just realized that the evolve deluxe AOE figures might not be the same as the generations deluxe figures.

Here is deluxe evolve

Image

And here is deluxe genertions

Image

But are these simply redecos or more extensive retools?

I ask because unless he is mistransformed, generations Strafedoes not seem to transform at all from his alt mode to his robot mode:

Image


Image

Maybe this is old news, but I wanted to know if you guys also caught that and if we know if this robot does transform and if so in how many steps (I cant find a picture of the back of the box anywhere)

Edit:

After further scrutiny on my part, it looks like its the same figure. Actually, every generations figure on the hasbro page I linked below is the same as the ones we have seen but they look more like crap since they arent promotional pictures. This kind of saddens me. Dirge and Slash get hit particularly hard by these new pics and take away a lot of their cool factor I thought they once had. At least it gives us a better idea of what they will look like once we open them. http://www.hasbro.com/en_CA/shop/browse ... l&items=50

^ The fourth picture in your post, in robot mode, is mistransformed. Look at the box art on the in package generations release and you'll see that they've mistransformed the legs and done nothing to fold away the dino heads.

so that means that the robot head kibble seen in the alt mode will remain there?

Those Construct-Bot Grimlock images do a good job of hiding the fact that half of his dino body is hanging off his back. He's pretty nice as Construct-bots go, but I wouldn't buy him at full price.

Reports have been coming in for a while now, but Seibertron member reluctantyouth was kind enough to drop by with some photographic evidence that the Transformers: Age of Extinction mainline has started popping up at retail. Pictured below is Deluxe wave one, which consists of Crosshairs, High Octane Bumblebee, Scorn, and Slug. Keep in mind the official street date for these figures is May 17th, you may encounter issues actually purchasing them. Good luck, and happy hunting!

I see a platinum edition box in the bottom left corner so this was Toys R Us.

One SE Michigan TRU just put this case and those Sparker things (OP on Grim, and Drift on Slug) out on Monday, but I was broke so I didn't think to scan them, because I thought the street date was May 1st instead of the 17th. The price tag on the shelf was $14.99 for the deluxes.

Don't want to say more until I double-check availability tomorrow.

I've asked the user about the location and price, but haven't heard back from him yet. Will update when we get the info, or maybe he'll just post it here in the topic.

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.
