Earlier today, we reported that Seibertron, himself, found the newly released Wal*Mart AOE exclusives at a local store in the Chicagoland area, which you can see here.

Seibertron has taken the time to make a Mini gallery of these items, in packaging, so we can get their UPC info. Why, you ask? Because these are part of Wal*Mart's upcoming seasonal reset and most, if not all stores, have these sitting in the back room awaiting a chance to be stocked on shelves and pegs. However, since they're on hand and active in the computer, you can buy them now. With the aid of the UPC info, the toy department associate can help you get them out of the back. (However, not every employee will be able to or be willing to help, so be polite when asking and try someone else if they won't. Manners go a long way in the collector world.)

NOTE: Sometimes Wal*Mart's computer system modifies the UPC for internal stock keeping purposes. If the full UPC doesn't work, give the UPC with the last number removed. The computer should be able to recognize it, then.

Bumblebee & Dinobot Strafe : 6 53569 98399 6

Optimus Prime & Grimlock: 653569 98404 7

Decepticon Stinger & Dinobot Slug: 6 53569 98402 3

Not to mention every mass retail store outside of TRU in the Salt Lake City metro area. I've seen Voyager Hound and Galvatron at TRU, once or twice, but aside from ONE Target that had Wave 2 deluxes briefly, I haven't seen anything past Wave 1 of Deluxes or Voyagers. Every single Target and Walmart still has a bazillion Power Attackers and Dino Sparkers. And like 16 Deluxe Crosshairs. Surprised he's the shelfwarmer of this movie.

And, I kid not, my local Walmart has about 10-15 Evasion Primes on the shelf. :BANG_HEAD: They're never going to put anything new out if they can't sell those. Ugh.

Well, here in the U.S., they're $29.99 for the set, which isn't bad at all, if you consider a Voyager is about $23 and a Deluxe around $10-14. So it saves a few dollars. I just have both molds, so I wouldn't consider paying for them a second time unless they were less expensive.

Actually we do get the IDW legend stuff, like the prime and starscream, the asda near me is chock full of them (For £6, opposed to the exclusive legions £3), as is the toy r us. We sometimes get the IDW deluxes...Just not with the comics.

I know these are not the most wanted products from AOE but...

I just spotted the AOE Hexbugs at my local ToysRus on Decarie Blvd in Montreal, Qc, Canada.

The prices listed are in Canadian dollars. And also, I wanted to point out that they are found in the transformers section, thus taking up shelf space alloted to transformers.

Yeah, I first saw them the day I went to see Age of Extinction the day it came out, and picked up a set to use Grimlock as a Classics Grimlock (since the old Deluxe was too small, IMO), and have Optimus in a separate display. My Target still has a handful of these sets for full price.

The deluxes were getting smaller before the movie. Just check out the Prime Line (RID). Sargeant Kup is the smallest deluxe I have ever seen. It is so odd to make him stand to First Edition Cliff Jumper.

Also, I don't find these movie toys bad at all. Evasion Mode OP, Hound and Galvatron have very interesting transformations and both modes have limited kibble (though Galvatron's backpack is a bit annoying to me but that's more the fault of the film having them morph instead of transforming). And the dinobots have great designs and sculpts. I dislike Strafe's easy transformation but his resulting robot mode is very nice as well as all dinobots. They look very majestic (I own Scorn, Slog, Strafe and Grimlock). They are also not easier to transform than previous transforming dinosaurs.

SO in the end, I am not annoyed by the smaller size in this particular line, since this has been happening for a few years, and I don't find the transformations of the movie toys I own simpler than the previous lines.

I think they're the second wave of the "unclassified" (no TF4 logo) Legion releases, after Legends Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Starscream.

Customizing, man, customizing. Hasbro doesn't bother with the Dinobots? FEH! I'll make my own!

Ironically I find these custom sets a bit lacking. The weapons and clips and other not-Kreon parts are amazing, but I'm not sure what to do with the long arms, clear torsos, or chrome helmets. How many Transformer characters need those?

Members of the Transformers Columbia Facebook group are reporting a special Transformers: Age of Extinction/Oreo promotion. Specially marked packages of Oreos contain sticker albums and a code. The codes can be entered in the Oreo Promotional website to receive a Transformers: Age of Extinction Deluxe. So far it appears to only be Wave 1: High Octane Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Slug, and Scorn. The figures come in special box with 32 stickers. No word on a domestic version of this promotion.

There's scores across the board. I've become desensitized to product placement, even in games, like Pepsiman or Spot goes to Hollywood. Only problem with this promotion I can see is that I'm not a massive fan of Oreos.

Continuing in his video review streak, fellow Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 brings us another Age of Extinction Power Battler toy to look at, and it's Optimus Prime's turn! See what he has to say about this multilimbed, sword-wielding figure below.

]When early promo pics of this figure surfaced I knew I had to get it in hand. They thought of an Optimus Prime with 4 hands just sounded cool. With a sword slashing action that looks like it belongs in the Masters of the Universe line Prime is a fun figure that's an all around cool toy.

He does look pretty cool compared to the other Power Battlers. At least he is proportionate. I wouldn't hold out for retail though, seeing as the Power Battlers are up there with Dino Sparkers as "stuff that hasn't moved since release". All my local stores are still packed with wave 1. I did see a Scorn (Wave 2)at Target, who doesn't seem to have made such a large initial order of this stuff as Walmart did. Same goes for 1-Steppers. They have culled the hundreds of 1-Steppers at Walmart, but there are still ALOT left. I think the later waves of Power Battlers and 1-Step are going to be what we see at TJ Max and the like this Christmas.

I was thinking that too hence why I jumped on it off of Amazon. The later waves are up there for pre-order now too.

Catching up on all the sightings that fellow Seibertronians have been sending the staff (make sure to flag them up in the Sightings section and forums too!), here's a later Age of Extinction one: Nikko Radio Controlled Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Sightings come from Target stores in Michigan, via xRotorstormx, and Illinois, via reluctantyouth [and via myself in the UK, Toys'R'Us] prices at $49.99 each, require additional batteries and transform at the touch of a button - photo proof below!

Thanks for the included news credit on these...thought I posted it a couple of weeks ago. The two at my Target have not budged in 3 weeks. The Transformer section is looking very poor too. No Generations of any kind...what happened to Target :sad: ?!? I use to be able to count on them quite a bit.
