Strange Transformers Products Listed on Amazon

Weapon: Arc-Welders
We have found some rather oddly named items on Amazon.com that happen to be Transformers related. We assume (hope) they are figures or toys of some kind. Perhaps with some detective work we can find a clue as to what these will be. Though the names of them don't entirely make sense just yet.

Names like "Transformers Techie Team Action Figure" and "Transformers Greaser Gang Action Figure" are frankly, odd to say the least. The weirdest by far is "Transformers Toilet Troop Action Figure", which has us wondering if someone at Amazon has a sense of humor. If you don't believe us, all of the links to the following items are clickable. If you have any info on these mystery items or think you have an idea please tell us on the boards. Could these possibly be Rescue Bots Academy toys?

If you are good at mysteries, have a look at these code names for upcoming Studio Series figs!

You know, it wouldn't surprise me that these do turn out to be rba figures, as 'toilet troop' could easily turn out to be a janitor character (who winds up on adventures).

RBA seems likely. Interesting that these cover 3 different price points, that "Red Lightning 1" at $20 is likely either Optimus Prime or Heatwave.

They can do more than one toyline as the younger audience needs toys as well. Kids I know go crazy for the rescue bots toys. If the kids go crazy for entry level toys then more isn't a bad thing

What leads you to believe these are Studio Series? The team names actually make more sense for WfC, since micromasters and battlemasters are coming.

Jock squad sounds like it could be the Offroad, Race Car, Monster Truck, or Hot Rod Patrols.

Greaser gang sounds like Hot Rod patrol. But could be a military one too.

The other 2 can fit in too. And I am really hoping that red lightning 1 is sideswipe or red alert.

I think you are both reading it wrong. That line is a segue. The article talks about mysterious listings. Then the segue includes a link to the code names that are actually confirmed as for Studio Series. It does not say that the jock squad/greaser gang/toilet crew are part of the Studio Series, just that they are a mystery, kind of like what has already been done for the Studio Series via the link to that article. Basically if you are good at mysteries, take a look here (via the link).

That being said, I think some of the other posters are most likely right in that these are probably for rescue bots. Bummer, as my twisted sense of humor would love a toilet bot. He could be called download.

Ah that makes sense kev. Maybe a little more clarification in that article could help prevent the confusion.

I know it is a placeholder but the listing sounds more like something for an older audience than the rba stuff. I would have expected the placeholder for rba to be more young audience oriented. That said, toilet troop does ring as something for the rba line up more than WfC

The price points are $10, $15, and $20 and since you can actually pre-order these on Amazon unlike their other placeholders they're likely MSRP. They just don't match with anything in Generations or SS. Four Micromasters today would be at Deluxe price, not Legends, just look at Centuritron made up of three Minicons and some large weapons.

But where is all this about Micromasters and Battlemasters coming from? First I've heard of it being part of WfC outside of wild fan speculation. Most of the existing teams don't exactly fit the Cybertronian theme.

It was in a 'leak' a week or so ago, it's unsubstantiated of course.

If I remember the leak correctly, they were just indicating the classes for the new line. Deluxe, Voyager and Leader were there with Micromaster and Battlemaster. As Zerowolf indicated is was just an unsubstantiated leak. But even if it were true, that would indicate those 2 classes were replacing the prime masters and legends classes. Your price analysis would be correct, there is no way either of those 2 classes would cover a whole minicon team. Single package possibly at the prime master scale, and I'm assuming the other one would essentially be a new name for legends class. I suspect we'll know more next month from SDCC. Until then it is anyone's wild guess.

Hasbro Teases Product Reveal For Strange Amazon Listings

Postby Bounti76 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 3:31 am

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
Remember a while back, when some very odd Transformers listings popped up on Amazon? Listings with names like "Transformers Greaser Gang", and the especially odd "Transformers Toilet Troop"?

Well, it looks like Hasbro was in on the odd names from the start. Thanks to a heads up from Scottimus Prime, we saw from Hasbro's official Transformers Instagram story that they are, indeed, up to something.

No word on when we'll find out what those listings mean, but with SDCC around the corner, it's probably safe to say that we'll find out soon. Any guesses as to what they might be?

Did anyone notice that Unicron was part of that background? At a time he is making a resurgence in the comics, is it possible he's getting a new toy, and if so do we think it'd be another Armada repaint or a new mold?

Techie Team is likely something to do with the Technobots. Greaser Gang is likely to do with the Stunticons. Hard to say in what way though. Toilet Troop is likely Wreck-Gar. Jock Squad is hard to say.

probably not this. names are too silly. but they did say before they wanted to do a new unicron through the haslabs crowdfunding thing. as for this, the silly names have been making me think of new blind bag mini figures, but silly ones like the gross-ery gang etc. only time will tell

So... these guys could be ANYTHING! Even though they are using Generations-style backing... That basically means nothing. These could be any kind of figure for any line. And, I wouldn't be surprised to see Combiner Force Combiners.

It's ALSO possible that these names are like the preliminary listings for AoE/TLK and therefore the names, themselves, have no meaning. But that seems sliiightly less likely.

ALL OF THAT BEING SAID, here is what I will predict/hope since all bets are off.

Techie Team = UW Computron (hopefully in Hasbro colors. With a special Ed. Prime Master)
Techie Team Hope = See above.

Greaser Gang = Realistically? I dunno. Road Caesar? Maybe a set of Rescue/Engineer Autobot combiner limbs to go with Inferno.
Greaser Gang hope = Titan Master versions of the Autobot Targetmasters. TM-Springer and/or Sandstorm too.

Jock Squad = Duocon Flywheels
Jock Squad hope = Flywheels plus more.

Toilet Troop = Realistically? No idea. Maybe a couple of Junkions. A Voyager and three Deluxes to make a combiner?
Toilet Troop hope = Seacons



This is all over the map. Notably, G2 Defensor is still not one of these, so... That f***ing sucks if we end up getting 4 boxsets and NO G2 Defensor.

I got no idea. They sorta remind me a lil of the Micromaster team naming things but that's about all I can come up with. Kinda curious now.
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean offense to anyone. Just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Bayverse, Marvel UK G1, Geoff Senior art, '86 movie (more for style/soundtrack rather than Star Wars plot)
Dislikes: Bumblebee movie (lousy rehashed dumb crud), TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron
