You'd be hard pressed to find hot wheels versions of the 84 and 85 bots.

EDIT, I should add before you say it or anyone else does, that yes I am sure at some point there was cars similar enough, but Hot Wheels on the secondary market have insane pricing for a tiny diecast car.

This may be true for only specific models that are also MOSC. Because Hotwheels, Matchboxes and the like are common like ROACHES at thrift shops. Bags and bags of them for just a few bucks each. Sure, getting what you actually want may be around 1% chance. But anyone who just want an epic small die-cast cars collection can have a MASSIVE ammount in a few seconds for less than a McDonald's meal.

That's not what I meant. I meant that any company making such cars only needs to pay for the CAR licence (plus some sponsors perhaps, for racing cars), rather than the TRANSFORMERS licence to release most of the G1 '84 Autobot cars. I'm sure there are Matchbox, Corgi, Hotwheels, Majorette, Tomicar versions already out there, too.

Part of the problem is that Hasbro has never really had much interest in die cast cars. Since Mattel owns the two big ones, Hot Wheels and Matchbox, it would be hard to compete on that front so they never made the effort. I'm sure it wouldn't have been worthwhile if they couldn't also use them as non-Transformers cars. They did buy Galoob for MicroMachines, but they were never as successful afterwards. Years later would start up the RPMs/SpeedStars lines with the first Transformers movie, but even rebranding couldn't save that line. It's best to let another company license the likenesses and take the loss.

For the record, I did spot TLK wave 2 at my local Toys R Us this past weekend, now, as well as Target a few weeks ago. There may still be hope of actually spotting Wave 3 in brick and mortar. I need a Crosshairs.

I spotted Wave 3 at my TRU... but at $20 a pop I had to skip Strafe. Now it's all gone...

Keep an eye on your Walmarts, people! Voyagers at $13 and now Deluxes at $7 at my local one, not advertised! Have them scanned! Hopefully Wave 3 will be pushed out now...

Voyagers are now $7 at the 2 Wal-Mart's I checked. I got Hound, he is pretty solid no complaints other than the weird feet.

I found dragonstorm at target,first one ive seen. I paid full price but it was well worth it, he is awesome.

One step dragonstorm is on sale for 20 bucks on target.com. For that price I couldn't pass. Ordered it last night and going to pick it up now.

Which one? I think the legion is still MIA in the US. Also was the allspark Sqweaks and megatron ever found in the US?

The leader. I haven't seen the legion yet but if I do he will join his dragon brothers.

For a long time the only allspark toy I saw was the starter pack or whatever with optimus. Last night I saw hound and drift at target but have not seen squeaks or Megatron yet.

Just picked up one step dragonstorm. I might be the only person who feels this way, but I love this figure! He is massive idc that he's pretty much a brick.

Transformers: The Last Knight Deluxe Class Hot Rod found at Dutch Retail

Postby Bounti76 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:46 am

Weapon: Vibro-Axe
While the toyline for Transformers: The Last Knight effectively ended last year, there still are some figures that remain elusive. One of those figures is Deluxe Class Hot Rod, who, despite being a prominent character in the movie, had most of his toys in the U.S. lined up as Walmart exclusives. While this may have worked out in theory, the Autobots Unite subline (which all his U.S. toys were a part of) was effectively canceled at the 11th hour by the retailer, with his Deluxe Class and Legion Class toys only ever being available on Walmart's website-to this day he still has't been found at brick-and-mortar retail in the U.S. The Legion Class two-packs for the line ended up being dumped to discount retailers like Ross and T.J. Maxx.

This hasn't been the case in other parts of the world, where Hot Rod's Deluxe Class figure has appeared at regular retail. Friend of Seibertron Mike from Tilburg, Netherlands found this figure at Top 1 Toys in Tilburg, marking our first confirmed sighting of Hot Rod at Dutch retail.

Have you found Hot Rod in your country? Have you seen him at U.S. retail in person? Let us know and happy hunting for those hard to find figures!

Design Concept for Transformers: The Last Knight All Spark Tech Toys by Santalucia

Postby Va'al » Wed Apr 04, 2018 12:36 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of the official page of toy designer and artist Emiliano Santalucia, we have a look at Hasbro' All Spark Tech figure of Optimus / Nemesis Prime and the basic concept of the line, from Transformers: The Last Knight.

The images shown, and mirrored below for your viewing convenience, feature the basic parts of the toys that allow for the interchangeable cube cores to be inserted in the chest of the characters.As you can see from the initial concept design, the cubes were thought to be much smaller than what the figures ended up being after all. Give it a look, and join the Energon Pub conversation!

So cogman was on 'sale' at tfsource so I bit; having him now, I'm wondering how he could ever be considered a figure of the year. He has no heels, and a terrible center of gravity due to, wait for it, 3 degree's of movement in his frickin legs, he can only bend his knee's at 0, 45 and 90 degree's of bend, it's mind boggling, like how was this a good idea?

tldr: cogman makes a great statue :BANG_HEAD:

So I’ve been considering buying a deluxe class crosshairs via amazon and read about how there was a problem with the figure(wheel popping off and gun not able to store in alt mode). How likely am I going to get a crosshairs with that problem? I’d be willing to spend a few extra dollars for one, but not if it’s like 50% chance of getting a defective one.

Those problems are not really a big issues. The loose wheel can be tightened with Pledge Floor Polish and as for storing the guns, you just have to put them in the right way.

Also, there may be some production number on the packajing to differentiate the runs, but even if you know them, no online retailers would care. In the end, it's a throw of the dice.

The wheel will always be looser on one side, regardless. But for it to be super loose, yes its a 50% chance. But as Kanrabat said, its fixable on your end.

Universal Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Snarl Coming to BBTS

Postby william-james88 » Mon May 07, 2018 1:34 pm

As part of a supposed mandate during the year of Trasformers: The Last Knight, practically all Age of Extinction dinobots were to be redeco'd in darker more screen accurate colours. Many of you might still see the voyager Grimlock still on shelves, and the Strafe, Slug and Slash redecos were also available at retail. There was also a Snarl redeco to go along with his fellow Dinobots but he was a Universal Studio exclusive (and not even labeled as part of The Last Knight).

So for many, that was a toy they simply would not be able to add to their collection. That will change later this month, with BBTS now listing this same toy for only $19.99 USD. We have official images in the listing as well that you an see below. Which of you will be getting this toy?

Product Description
Bring home the explosive action of the Transformers universe with this Deluxe Snarl figure. This Dinobot figure converts from robot to stegosaurus in 15 steps. Figure comes with 1 blaster and 1 blade accessory that combine to form 1 bigger mace accessory.

The name Snarl says it all. Constantly scowling, the Autobots and Dinobots can never really tell if the ferocious warrior is on their side. Entrenched with a fiery hatred towards the Decepticons, the Dinobot only smiles when faced with another chance to take down the enemy.

Product Features
Deluxe class figure
Made of plastic
Converts to stegosaurus Dinobot mode
Converts in 15 steps
Battle alongside ferocious Dinobot, Snarl
Box Contents
Snarl figure
Weapon accessory
