Today we have a sighting for you, by Seibertron member Starscream.

The newly released Transformers themed Mr. Potato Head toys are available at Family Dollar, and for the low price of $5.00 each! The store was located in the Chicago area, so if the midwest is having these show up, they should be coastal soon, if not now.

The assortment he saw consisted of Optimus, Bumblebee and Grimlock. He also provided visual proof below:

My theory is that what the humans are creating aren't really Transformers; they're just blobs of Cybertronian metal programmed to vaguely resemble them. It's like making a Transformer out of Play-Doh. There's no panels shifting or anything because the entire robot just gets "molded" into a different form.

Wouldn't straight up T2-style transmutation be more technologically advanced than transformation?

That's a pretty good theory. Makes a lot of sense especially since the transformium was programmable. Does anyone think that perhaps the transformium wasn't exactly "pure transformium?" I only say this because of the fact it didn't transform, but cubeformed.

eToysJapan has listed two new Transformers: Age of Extinction Platinum Editions sets. The first is an Optimus Prime with Trailer and bonus figure rumored to be Stinger. The second is a set of all five Dinobots rumored to have new darker colored decos. Each set is scheduled for release in October. Unfortunately the pre-orders only have silhouettes, but you can check them out below:

While the trailer is tempting, I absolutely despise the 1st Edition AoE Prime mold and I also have the UFO trailer for my movie Prime.

"Confidentil"? Sounds like a new brand of dental floss.

Hot Shot? Anyone thinks he look more like Tracks?

Sadly the silhouettes don't include Snarl. :BANG_HEAD: :HEADHURTS: :-(

With a melted face, but yeah.

...y'know some Parental Group is gonna raise a stink about Bumblebee's Satanic Throwing Pentagrams.

I am really looking forward for these figures. I don't care if I have to spend $50 for Bumblebee, Tracks, and Snarl. I hope I won't be disappointed with the Dinobot 5-pack. Black Knight Grimlock was something I didn't expect and was greatly disappointed with the white and brown.

Those visible robot hands on that Stegosaur mode...

With that 4 :CON: logo on literally all the packaging and everything, you'd expect more than 2 Decepticons. And for there to be actual confirmation on the one that's a Bumblebee repaint.

Seeing all these platinum sets I'm glad I'm holding off on getting any of the deluxe figures for now. I got drift because I like blue and the evolution sets to review. I wonder if Prime with trailer is going to be like that Takara set that's supposed to hit this month.

Wow, that pic makes Bumblebee look horrible! I mean, he's got sloppy paint work on the chest, and the vehicle mode looks awful with the mismatched paint/plastic. At least you know it's not photoshopped or anything.
