Hasbro missed a great oppurtunity to use the generations springer mold for drift by retooling the car parts to resemble a Bugatti.

evasion OP's paint is a little too cartoon-ish, ah well, since this is like the only foreseeable chance to get a classic OP without paying extra, I'm 100% getting the pack.

I don't understand why people dislike the 5-pack. It's better (IMO) compared to the SDCC one, and it's cheaper than the Black Knight ones that Takara's releasing. Plus, we don't know if Takara we release a Black Knight Voyager Grimlock and Slog, or Black Knight Deluxes Slash, Snarl, and Strafe.

Skyhammer was the only mold I got from the DotM line and while I think it is a great mold I want to see this one in the stores first

I wonder if next movie line will give us a triple-changing Drift? Kinda surprised they didn't make one this time around, but the helicopter mode seemed like a last-minute change.

It's a shame Hasbro doesn't really ever repaint Classics-style molds into Movie bots. No Springer->Drift, no adopting "tattoo" Starscream as a new Seeker, no Prowl->Barricade (there's that Prime/TFCC one, but I'm thinking of a "G1" version.)

Seibertron.com user Bounti76 reports a sighting from the Walmart in Layton, Utah, and it's the Cyberverse repaints part of the Age of Extinction exclusives line! Check out below for photo proof of the appearance at retail of Stinger and Grimlock, though we are told that Optimus and Bumblebee were also available, each priced at $5.96 plus tax. Make sure to flag up any of your own sightings in the appropriate section and forums, too!

Found these in East Peoria, Illinois Walmart a couple of days ago. There are two of every figure in the case. I left them and didn't think to post as news. That was the first new sighting at a Walmart in a long time for me here. There are NO AOE deluxes or Generations deluxes on the pegs at any Walmart in my area and there are 5 in a 20 mile radius that I frequent. Walmart is the new Kmart when it comes to Transformers...sucks to no end.

We've had them in the UK for the past two weeks, which means we got exclusives before the us for once :D though we lag behind everything else toywise...

I'm hopefully snagging both of these and maybe, just maybe, the optimus prime. Though I need to decide if I want to collect all the versions of that mold.

Remember guys, those exclusives were found in canada months ago (it was my first news credit ever). The distribution is really really wierd.

Anyways, about Streetwise, we might all think it sucks (I know I do) but people will still pay soooooo much to have him before others. I just checked how much he is going for in the listing where the in hand images come from was and he's going for almost 30$

That's how much the whole pack will probably cost new

They were in Canada first? Interesting, so they skipped across the pond after Canada then skipped back over.

Seibertron at it again! This time to report sightings of the the Age of Extinction Wal-Mart Exclusive 2-packs at the Rolling Meadows, Il Walmart. Revealed awhile back and priced at $14.99 each, these two-packs features Cyberverse figures paired with repaints of Scout/Basic figures from past toy lines. Optimus Prime is paired with Grimlock which is an Energon Cruellock repaint. Stinger a Cyberverse Bumblebee repaint comes with Slug which is a Beast Wars Neo Guiledart repaint. and Finally Bumblebee comes with Strafe which is a Beast Wars Basic Terrorsaur repaint. Check out the pictures we've provided below. And make sure to post up any of your own sightings in the appropriate section and forums, too!

Rippersnapper being recolored as Grimlock just might work. What do the rest of you think?

This has me hoping that they redo Windrazor as Strafe. With all the TFP Terrorcon repaints out there, I think there's a certain amount of customizing to be had in regards to what the combined form looks like. Almost replaces scramble combining, in a way.

That's the one I want most. Not as Grimlock, though, but as Abominus fodder. Oh how I wish they'd repaint those figures more... or rather more widely release the repaints they did make...

Terrorsaur-Strafe is interesting, if just for the novelty of a BW figure getting a re-release nearly 20 years later. But of course they had to put a Bumblebee in it.

I'm all for more TFP terrorcons repaints :D Though I've still got a long way to go before getting all them.

Sorry, with all the crap that Hasbro has released for the AOE line, I have only bought 5 figures for my own collection. Voyager Optimus and Hound (which just feel like large deluxes), and deluxes Crossairs, Drift, and Strafe. I don't think I will be keeping Strafe either since the Dinobots were barely characters in the movie. And non of these figures felt like I got my money's worth. I haven't even seen voyager Galvatron anywhere. Just a lot of these clogging up shelves.

And remember that even though we get fans from all over the world, the site is still US-centric.

We do get generations, they're just exclusives to toyrus and we'll be lucky to get wave two. Especially considering that the restocking of the evolution 2-packs is spotty at best.

Also, that stinger...is that a different mold then the other exclusives?

Wait. Generations is Toys R Us Exclusive? Well shit. Because in this country there is only one Toys R Us. And it's pretty crap.

Agreed.

Although, these figures are actually fairly easy to do yourself, if you ever wanted to take a dip into customizing. A micro-head paint brush, Meijer brand craft paints for .94 a bottle, spray them with a rattlecan in a nice basecoat of your choice, and

We just got Galvatron and Hound here in Quebec, Canada. Drift is nowhere to be seen (was never spotted) and that generations armada homage wave (starscream, minicon team) came and went in one week. We also never have masterpieces or platinum editions due to language laws.

.. but we have free healthcare, so I cant complain too too much ;)
