Let the hunt begin! The highly anticipated Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes have been spotted at domestic retail. It was announced during SDCC 2012 that the Asian market exclusive Transformers Generations figures would be taking their way Stateside as Toys"R"Us exclusives. The Deluxe wave featuring Springer, Swerve, Wheelie, and Cliffjumper was spotted a Toys"R"Us location in Illinois.

I've got two extra CJs and one each of Springer and Swerve (all sealed). Can't decide if I should put them on eBay now while people are looking for them in stores, or wait until they're gone from stores and then sell them.

FYI: If you haven't played with the FE CJ mold, let me tell you: it's so much better than the PRID version it's not even funny. The PRID version is crap in comparison.

I'll shoot by Toys "R" Us in a few hours before heading home to see if they're popping up on the East Coast as well.

I'll take a Wherlie, Springer, and maaaaaybe Cliffjumper, if this "Buy One, Get One Free" on all Transformers figures deal at my local store is still offering it.

These are TRU exclusives, right? There's no way they're going to offer BOGO free on TRU exclusives.

Couldn't they wait with the releases for a little while longer? O well, the First Editions won't be too far behind then. :)

I'll take the Wheelie and Swerve. Warbot is my Springer. Might go for the Cliffjumper too and put it with my Prime's.

Now that I think about it, its actually "Buy TWO Get One Free". I think you can, I'm not sure. Only way to find out is by asking. ;)

Wheelie and Springer don't look too bad but I already have one of each of those molds and already have a Classics Springer and Wheelie, so I'll probably just get Swerve.

When are we getting a Classics Skids and Gears?

Yesterday I got Masterpiece Thundercracker, Voyager Dreadwing and Fall of Cybertron Jazz was free. So, the "Buy One, Get One Free" works for exclusives. I was also able to place them in Layaway. Thought this news would come in handy for anyone not wanting to shell out all the cash but still get all the figures.

The more time progresses, the earlier the Christmas shopping season comes, it seems.

excellent news. I really want Wheelie and Springer, and quite tempted by the other 2. Not really holding out much hope of the TRU near me getting them in though.

I love the Wheelie so I'll grab him. Great color and awsome mold! I've been wanting a triple changer springer for years. To bad Springer isn't a tripple changer. Swerve? i don't need him. Pass on cliffy, We don't need Four Hasbro cliffjumpers in one year.
Re: Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes Spotted at Retail (1422191)

Hasbro, is it really that complicated to make springer a triple changer like he should be?

How about returning them so other collectors can buy them in retail too ?

Indeed. That would be better than ebay.

PREACH. I can understand if there were an overabundance of them at the store he bought them at, but snatching them up solely to make a profit and take them out of the hands of other collectors who actually want the figures is rather rude, in my opinion. When I found 4 MP Thundercrackers, did I buy them all? No. I bought 3....one for myself, and two for friends in other states who haven't been able to find him. I left the other one on the shelf, because I want another collector to have the thrill of turning down that aisle and finally finding him.

so whats the retail price for these guys $20? I want wheelie & springer but i already know they're going to be extremely overpriced especially if they're TRU exclusives.
Re: Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes Spotted at Retail (1422261)
Posted by Doubledealer93 on September 20th, 2012 @ 7:19pm CDT
only gonna get wheelie maybe. all others i could care less about. springer looks ugly, i dont know who swerve is.

I'll go for Wheelie and Cliffjumper but I'm not into those molds for Springer and Swerve. I'm happy with Tomahawk and Kup.

Surprisingly, TRU's Deluxes are the cheapest I've found, at $14.90-ish. Other retailers are asking $15.75. I wouldn't think they'd be overpriced, that would be a little absurd.

I still want three wheelies for my Shattered Glass Shelf

Posted by triKlops on September 21st, 2012 @ 1:15am CDT
i have been looking forward to these to fill some gaps, especially Springer
Wheelie was a nogo at first but has grown on me since then, might scoop him if i see him
Re: Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes Spotted at Retail (1422392)
Posted by phase on September 21st, 2012 @ 3:00am CDT
I'm getting all except for Wheelie, as I'm perfectly comfortable with my G1 Wheelie on my shelves, and I don't need an extra. Springer, I'll get just because I don't have a leader for my Wreckers, Swerve, I'm getting because MTMTE has made me love him, and CJ I'm getting because I like the mold and character. I also may pick up an extra CJ for a friend who just moved and can't buy one, but Cliffy is one of her favorite characters.

Now where the slag are the other sizes? I hunger for Blue, Dead End, Sandstorm, Hot Spot, Powerdive, and Laserbeak.

I must have these plus does Cliffjumper use the first edition body?
Re: Transformers Generations GDO Deluxes Spotted at Retail (1422426)
Posted by gavinfuzzy on September 21st, 2012 @ 5:40am CDT
Wait. Why are these packed in Alt mode when they are packaged in Bot mode in Asia?

That just goes to show Hasbro repackaged them for US retail... So what's up with the Asian "Excusiveness?"

Cooltip: Wheelie's the rarest, the rest can wait.

Hey guys, back off. I bought a case from RobotKingdom before they announced that they'd be released in the US. At the time, I thought it was the only way I could get these figures, and I planned to sell the extras AT COST. I didn't snatch them off the shelves to scalp them. Get the facts before you accuse someone of being rude or selfish. All I'm looking to do now is recover my costs.

Awwwww yeahhh! About to leave for TRU in 30 minutes, hope they have these. May Primus give me luck in my journey :PRAY:

I hate seeing the words "TRU Exclusive" because that means unless I get lucky and manage to get one if they post them for sale online I won't likely see them around here. The closest TRU to me is too far away to check more than once every couple weeks and to date they haven't done very well about stocking TF exclusives. Only time I usually see them here is when something is massively overstocked or not much in demand. So that means if I want these $14.90 bots they will end up costing me multiples of that on eBay. I still don't understand why TRU and the Hasbro Toy Shop don't take online pre-orders for bots like these aimed more at the collector market so that everyone that wants one can get them for retail price and Hasbro and TRU are left with less chance of being hit with inventory they can't move.

Guess Im swinging by TRU on the way home from work. Not really committing to any of these until I see them. I need a Wheelie, but not sure of one that is bigger than other figures.

Does anyone have a number I would be able to use for the store? Went by there earlier in my neck of the woods- no luck, even when I talked to an associate. I think that number, like the one given for MP Thundercracker, would definitely help...

That's where Legends Wheelie from the Universe (or was it Generations?) line comes in handy. And it's in scale with MP Grimlock too!
