BumbleBeeDrill. Ha ha, eh...

BB is a dumb choice for a pack-in, he's already got that armor suit. But I do like the drill's colors. And I guess it's better than a 4th Smokescreen. If they ever repaint that upcoming Waspinator minicon into... whoever the yellow hornet was, he'd go nicely with this set.

As odd as this sounds I think this looks pretty sweet may pick this up if it even comes out here in Canada.

...You couldn't have retooled it a little, Hasbro?

Also, Bumblebee with Knock Out's weapons is kinda weird to me...

Posted by Henry921 on May 19th, 2013 @ 12:26am CDT
Why retool it when they already retooled it? ;)

And, as we all know, Bumblebee is the figure that sells. He never shelfwarms, no siree. Not the only figure available at Target/TRU for weeks on end; that never happened.

I think I'd rather have another Decepticon Energon Driller.

The mold, regardless of color, is a great mold. Out of the two Cyberverse playsets (this and Starhammer), this was the better one.

Plus, the Deluxe Class Vehicons can stand at the main controls and actually hold them. A bit undersized, but still works.

I personally don't care for the colors on this redeco, but the mold is definitely a winner.

Buzz Saw (not to be confused with Soundwave's Buzzsaw). He'd be too small though. Technically speaking, Buzz Saw is a Yellow Jacket, a more specific species than Waspinator is.

So Breakdown has Bumblebee's Ego-Suit, so he steals Knock Out's Drill. I see what they did there.

I love that they went with a nice yellow-and-blue the Autobot-sided construction vehicles tend to use. Bee was inevitable, but they're both good molds (and I haven't picked up either yet), so I may well pick this up.

I'd love this if it was in GOLD. The pictures look like a nice shade of gold. But if it comes out in that gawful BB exo-suit yellow... :SICK:

I don't really understand how the Autobots have a drill tank now... but whatever. :roll:
Wouldn't it be cheaper, and potentially COOLER, to take the Decepticon energon drill and just splash some Autobot symbols and paint brush swipes? You know, like the Autobot team grabbed a drill and quickly redecoed it on the fly before drilling into a Decepticon base. :-?

Site sponsor Robotkingdom has shared a packaging shot the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Energon Driller with Bumblebee Cyberverse Playset. The set is part of the Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Cyberverse Playsets Wave 2 along with the previously released Sky Claw with Smokescreen and Apex Armor with Breakdown.

Last we heard, the Cyberverse Wave 2 Playset Energon Driller repaint with Bumblebee never really made it to US retail. Nonetheless, Seibertron.com user SkyWarpsGhost was able to find one in Lisburn, Northern Ireland just the other day! The set was purchased at a TKMaxx store, and priced at £12.99 (~$21), check out the image below for proof.

Really? That driller hardly made it to the US? I'm surprised, I've seen one or two in a local toy store (supplied by a German chain, Vedes).

Oh man, glad to see that made it out somewhere.

Hey UK dudes, if you find one and wanna make some extra cash, hit me up ;)

If I see one in TK I'll happily snag it at that price, got three of the 'con ones and love 'em. Unfortunately their stock is notoriously random and the organisation is so lacking that you really have to dig through the shelves to see what's hiding there.

Just a reminder to everyone: that version of the Energon Driller has no electronics.

I actually kinda like these toys. The one thing I always felt was lacking about my Transformers as a kid were playsets. Its a shame that they don't do the odd few for Generations ECT every now and then - A deluxe figure with Auntie\Teletran1 for example.

Have no plans on it ever. Good luck finding one. I know of one place selling one if someone needs it.

That means nothing. RTS toys didn't show up at TJ Maxx until almost a year after production. Anyone with any common sense would realize this and hold out. Especially for something so trivial and the fact that Hasbro has warehouses full of product that doesn't make it to normal retail. We do that too. Once a year our plant sells all the stuff that Home depot did not buy from us to sell in their stores. And everyone knows TJ Maxx and the like are Hasbro's "go to" on things such as these.

Kinda puts the kibosh on your profiteering venture, now doesn't it? If not, why have three of something so trivial, and then brag that you have them? Not to mention the fact you run a store on ebay, do you not? Suggestive marketing at its finest.

You forgot Smokescreens ship. And I disagree, the Starhammer was the best Autobot one. The driller is the best Deception one, but it is hard for me to look at this one and not think "cheesy shameless repaint" when I look at it.

I'd bank on it. This product has TJ Maxx written all over it. Along with the last waves of Cyberverse. I see the Canadian scalpers selling the Commanders for $45 ea. They should be ashamed of themselves. But, if someone buys them they are getting the fleecing they deserve.

Save your money Sabre. Or be prepared to kick your own rear when you see them for $12 this summer..... :)

Well, no worries for you then. It just kills me to see fellow fans get anxious and throw down cash to ripoff artists. I just happened last month with the whole Generations Legends line thing. I tried to warn people then that it would blow up in their faces and it did. If you think about it, it always happens that way. The only figures that I can recall we totally got ripped out of was the final wave of RTS scouts and no one got those. Save the takara two pack and that is expected to be a premium. Same with the last wave of DOTM deluxes. Those things were never released here and were never advertised as such. These prime Cyberverse toys were, meaning they exist in warehouses in the US. And Hasbro will not scrap finished goods.

TJ Maxx, summer of '14. Mark it down. And if I am wrong is it really that big of a loss? and I like and own all of the other cyberverse stuff, but it is an easy pass for me at scalper rates. As a matter of fact they do not even exist to me in that kind of situation. As for the deluxes, that is the only one I cannot call for sure. I would say they were scrapped all together because no one has got them at this point, but you never know.

I was not bragging. I Was stating I have 3 of them. I know where 3 are for sale currently. 2 Cases and 1 single Cyberverse Vehicle.

You also forgot to mention the Cyberverse legions which I only have confirmed for sale in Germany , Asian , Australia , Canada in very small portions. I think if they were destined for USA Shores they would of shown up by now on USA card. The RTS stuff did show up at retail for a short time. And yes the last wave of scouts were cancelled. A entire Movie Trilogy line was cancelled that featured 5 deluxes and 2 Leader Class figures. The Leader class figures were then repackaged in GDO Generations and sold in Asia. Eventually finding their way to TRU Canada. The Deluxe's were then cancelled and Evac sent to be a Universal Studios Exclusive. Soundblaster and a Version of Ratchet are planned for the Advanced Movie Trilogy Line. The figures cancelled from the DOTM for USA release were Leadfoot (Target Exclusive) , Soundwave ,Wheeljack along with Human Alliance Soundwave. If I was not to import the Cyberverse figures Internationally no one would have a chance to buy them as easily as they are able to now. It does cost money to buy and ship things you know. Just trying to recover my costs. And I only have Commander Class figures for sale. I only had a few Swerve and I literally sold those at a loss. Not that I need to explain myself to you.

Not just in the UK: Germany has them too, much to my wife's surprise.

Any way, there's already a chain in the UK with a name similar to TJ Maxx, so it was changed to TK Maxx.

Then why would you tell people you have three? Why not say I have some or them or it? If you want to scalp them go for it. It is a free market. You provide a service and if someone wants to pay for said service then that is their decision. I will still have my OP about it. And I think it is not right. But, who am I? But, just out of curiosity, what do you plan to do with three of them if you are not selling them? Especially something so obscure?

As far as your points on the current Cyberverse and BH stuff, they said that the upscale Voyagers would only see a HTS release and lo and behold they show up at retail just last week. Again, I say the legions and Commanders show up at TJ Maxx sometime this year. If you or others do not agree, then ok. Spend your money. To me it is no loss to miss them if scalpers are the only avenue to receive them. Especially now, when no one knows for sure whether my OP is right or yours. To me, even if you are going the scalper route, it makes sense to make sure you won't be kicking your own butt come summer when they show up at TJ Maxx for $4 for a Legion, $6 for a Commander, $8 for a deluxe, and $13 for a driller.

Keep telling yourself that. Honestly you are not even worth the reply anymore and If there is a ignore feature you will be going on it.

That means nothing. RTS toys didn't show up at TJ Maxx until almost a year after production. Anyone with any common sense would realize this and hold out. Especially for something so trivial and the fact that Hasbro has warehouses full of product that doesn't make it to normal retail. We do that too. Once a year our plant sells all the stuff that Home depot did not buy from us to sell in their stores. And everyone knows TJ Maxx and the like are Hasbro's "go to" on things such as these.

Kinda puts the kibosh on your profiteering venture, now doesn't it? If not, why have three of something so trivial, and then brag that you have them? Not to mention the fact you run a store on ebay, do you not? Suggestive marketing at its finest.


I was not bragging. I Was stating I have 3 of them. I know where 3 are for sale currently. 2 Cases and 1 single Cyberverse Vehicle.

You also forgot to mention the Cyberverse legions which I only have confirmed for sale in Germany , Asian , Australia , Canada in very small portions. I think if they were destined for USA Shores they would of shown up by now on USA card. The RTS stuff did show up at retail for a short time. And yes the last wave of scouts were cancelled. A entire Movie Trilogy line was cancelled that featured 5 deluxes and 2 Leader Class figures. The Leader class figures were then repackaged in GDO Generations and sold in Asia. Eventually finding their way to TRU Canada. The Deluxe's were then cancelled and Evac sent to be a Universal Studios Exclusive. Soundblaster and a Version of Ratchet are planned for the Advanced Movie Trilogy Line. The figures cancelled from the DOTM for USA release were Leadfoot (Target Exclusive) , Soundwave ,Wheeljack along with Human Alliance Soundwave. If I was not to import the Cyberverse figures Internationally no one would have a chance to buy them as easily as they are able to now. It does cost money to buy and ship things you know. Just trying to recover my costs. And I only have Commander Class figures for sale. I only had a few Swerve and I literally sold those at a loss. Not that I need to explain myself to you.




Then why would you tell people you have three? Why not say I have some or them or it? If you want to scalp them go for it. It is a free market. You provide a service and if someone wants to pay for said service then that is their decision. I will still have my OP about it. And I think it is not right. But, who am I? But, just out of curiosity, what do you plan to do with three of them if you are not selling them? Especially something so obscure?

As far as your points on the current Cyberverse and BH stuff, they said that the upscale Voyagers would only see a HTS release and lo and behold they show up at retail just last week. Again, I say the legions and Commanders show up at TJ Maxx sometime this year. If you or others do not agree, then ok. Spend your money. To me it is no loss to miss them if scalpers are the only avenue to receive them. Especially now, when no one knows for sure whether my OP is right or yours. To me, even if you are going the scalper route, it makes sense to make sure you won't be kicking your own butt come summer when they show up at TJ Maxx for $4 for a Legion, $6 for a Commander, $8 for a deluxe, and $13 for a driller.

Why you mad bro? Especially if you are not doing what I said? Your defensive comments are very telling to me. And the funny thing is I am not condemning you for it. If someone pays you a premium for these things that is between you and them. But don't lie about it. That is silly.
