Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker and Ironhide, they all sound like repaints to me, probably of the Stunticons.

My focus will definitelly be on the Combiner teams from the show... or at least that´s what I keep telling myself.

X, that's the price converted from British pounds. Such prices are standard fare in Europe actually and unfortunately. And if you must know, Smyths is a rather large chain of toy stores found throughout the UK and Ireland. >:oP



At the top of the news story the article says this:

Searchlight has spotted and purchased Voyager Silverbolt at Smyths for £22.99 (about US$36) in the UK.

Am I the only one that caught the conversion to US dollars listed in the article ?

Anyways, a voyager costs anywhere between $22-26 dollars including tax here in Miami, Florida at Walmart or Target. At TRU it might be a couple bucks more.


That's cute, voyagers cost 44,95 euro's in The Netherlands.
That's 56,02

Now complain about your price increase.

:-? Those 4 are odd choices. They bring Masquerade to mind, but only Mirage was in that. Hmm...

Well, Prowl would probably be intended for a Devastator, so maybe he's just doing double duty.
Sunstreaker, maybe they wanted to avoid too many red Autobots with Sideswipe.
Ironhide works better from Offroad than other bots (and they already have that Legends Windcharger).

Prowl

Ironhide

Now, as we all know by now, these listings are liable to change at any given moment, or Hasbro might be using them as placeholder names, so for the time being, take this with a grain of salt. If this holds true, we have an awesome 2015 ahead of us!

Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
Well well well...

The last four are new, while the Protectobot ones all happen to match up quite nicely with the previous rumor about them. How about that. :SMUG:


Not to mention that it's from the same guy that found Rattrap, Tankor, Crosscut and Nightbeat in Walmart computers.

Seeing Prowl's off-road vehicle mode in the comics, I was struck how similar the mode is to OFFROAD, the new member of the Stunticons. Maybe we'll see Offroad re-tooled as Prowl? But I don't how they'd convert a limb from one Gestalt to form the head/chest of another.

My wallet is weeping already, while I can't stop drooling.


I hate being late to the party. Only recently started reading the IDW ongoings. Trying to avoid spoilers, but I'm guessing I've just stumbled across a spoiler here. Oh well, not too bothered since a) it sounds like a stupid idea in the first place, and b) these comics have been out for ages so it's kind of inevitable.

Nonetheless, back to the CW news. Ironhide as a deluxe disappoints me. I want a good Voyager sized figure of him. Hopefully, if he's really good he can replace the Classics one though. I don't dislike the Classics one, but it has its flaws.

Some more images from another branch of Smyths Toys. Had the same issue with it not scanning properly but they got the code right in the end!

Also picked up this little fella too...

I'm thinking the Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker and Ironhide are just Classics repaints. Some of those were just used within the last year.

Sadly, I think some of you have it pegged. Our 4 new Autobots in the line-up are going to be Stunticon repaint figures and those of us hoping to get Prowl thrown in with the Constructicons are going to be very disappointed. It wasn't going to happen anyways. Too many figures and Hasbro knows enough to simply not do a figure at all then to do one and listen to everyone bitch...

"Of all the circuit glitched, diode blowin' dimwittery! YOU LEFT A PIECE OUT!"

And that's exactly what they would get from everyone putting only 5 figures in a 6 bot team.

I'm fine with their new choices for figures even if they are repaints and I will probably pick all of them up since I will for sure get the new Optimus. I missed out on snagging Generations Ironhide and Sunstreaker anyhow so these may serve as placeholders until I get them or even full-on replacements depending on how much I like their look.
I'm a cigar chomping, Energon guzzling, crotchety old bot that's tough as nails, two days older than dirt, can out grouch Ironhide, out-complain Huffer, leave Bluestreak speechless with a single glare and make Grimlock back down in a stare-off. If you're nice, and extremely lucky, I may only tell you to go blow it out your exhaust pipe!

Yeah, I agree: neither CW Prime or Silverbolt are on the Smyths website. Seems like someone made a mistake releasing them too early, one we're all too happy to capitalise on! I'll have to keep an eye out to see if they accidentally release any of the CW Deluxes early...

I also suspect those CW Autobots are going to be Stunticon repaints. Which is fine by me. I already have the Universe versions of those characters, and though I'll buy these CW ones because I'm a crazy person, it's nice to know that each character can have its own mold in my collection.

So I just had a really, really, really dumb thought.

What if Ironhide and Prowl are actually homages to their Energon selves, and are brand-spanking-new molds that aren't redecoes of the Stunticons? I know, it's literally one of the dumbest things I'm pretty sure I've ever suggested, but I couldn't help myself. #-o

I think an IDW-style Prowl as a retool of the Stunticon Offroad would make more sense to avoid being too similar to Streetwise. Which means they can't also make Ironhide a retool of Offroad as well, so I'm hoping he shares a new mold with First Aid.

As in regard to the Wal-Mart listings this is prob what's gonna happen. They're all going to be repaints, Sunstreaker/Breakdown, Mirage/Dragstrip, Prowl/Dead End, Ironhide/Offroad, Blades/Alpha Bravo, Rook/Offroad....and so on.... The first four to combine with Optimus I'm sure.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised to see an Offroad re-tool for Prowl too, due to the fact that him and Streetwise would be too similar, as you've said. I'm sure Ironhide will be a First Aid retool, that way him, Prowl, Sunstreaker and Mirage will combine with Prime to be an Autobot combiner.

I'm interested to see what they do with Hot Spot. It's got to be a new mould, surely.

I told you guys about the Sunstreaker from Breakdown instead of Sideswipe toy in July when the Stunticons were shown.

Judging from past Walmart computer reveals, how long will it be before these figures hit shelves?

I'm just saying off-road as Ironhide because, well the prime Ironhide was a truck deco from Kup prime which itself was a nod to movie Ironhide. I really don't think prowl would be from that mold mostly because he's only a SUV in IDW to match the mass of the constructicons. I still say dead end or even streetwise. They didn't hesitate to use the prime prowl/smokescreen mold for him already

Nah, it's the final combiner team. This isn't like the AoE Walmart exclusives that were just Prime and Energon decos.

I'm totally fine with this. I'll buy them all. They won't replace their classics counterparts much like how the stunticons won't be replacing my Fansproject M3 but I'll still buy th because I'm a schmuck
