Just because they were not in your area doesn't mean they never showed up in the US


Because they did.



So if a few people find them they should be considered out then? I know there are a good amount of people who have yet to find them, just because 3 people got lucky and found them dosent mean the figures are out there for all to find. So i guess TLK DLX Hot Rod should be removed then cause a few people have found him already.

Sorry for the confusion, but when we say US retail, it is assumed to mean big box retail. Smaller specialty stores have different channels and middlement to get toys which usually results in them being priced higher since they arent directly sourced. For instance, RID Bludgeon is out in canada and I have sent some out to US friends. They can in turn sell/trade them to a specialty store for someone else to buy in the US. So someone could find that toy in the US but technically its not out yet. You know that I mean? Unless you got your slugslinger for $16-$20, which would mean its directly sent from hasbro USA.

I'm guessing the deluxe Hot Rod might not hit shelves until October...maybe November. Anyone else have any ideas?

On a positive note...I FINALLY managed to pick up Titans Return Sixshot at said Walmart(the only one they had).


Wow, it's funny that you commented that. I literally just found Hot Rod (2x), Triggerhappy, Breakaway, and Twinferno (x2) at my local Kmart today. Only picked up Triggerhappy though. I'll see if I can add em to the sightings list.

Muncie In is always late to the party but even we have had Kup, Perceptor, etc. Though I have only seen them at TRU!

Ummm..... why is this news? Slow news day? Can we have a news article for things that haven't turned up in the UK yet? Or Japan? What about Indonesia?

I'm not questioning why the thread exists, just why it has been made news? I've been wondering that about a lot of news lately. Quite a few articles feel like they are just being newsed so you can update the news on the front page.


Man, I really am in a wierd mood today.

The main reason this thread and this story was created was due to the lack of sightings that Seibertron.com gets that are then reported for news. You would be amazing at how many sightings stories we have posted over the past year or so where as soon as we post the sightings (sometimes using TFW users) we have like 3 people start chiming in saying they found said figure weeks beforehand and just never posted it in a thread or reported it to news staff. This article was to help garner attention to the fact that if you spot a new figure, we would really like you to report it so we can news it and stay up to date with sightings. And Seibertron.com does get a lot of views from people who are not a part of the site, so they could see this story and realize they have seen a toy we haven't and sends it in to us.

Interesting tidbit I just came across, apparently Galvatronus was available for sale at HasCon, possibly other yet to be released figures were as well.

I thought TLK deluxe Hot Rod was a Walmart only exclusive? I never bother with the one Kmart in my area. They never have anything and they prices are as bad as Toys R Us.

I just wish Hasbro would release the new characters in the first wave. Save the Primes, Bees and repaints for the later ones since anyone who's even remotely interested will already have picked them up 3 years ago.

You guys are talking about 2 very different Deluxe Hot Rods. One is talking about TR Hot Rod and the other is talking about TLK Hot Rod.

In the case of Kup, Perceptor and the rest of wave 4, they have been out in the US for 6 months if you count Walgreens, 2-3 months if you only count Walmart/Target/TRU, so it has been many more than 3 people getting lucky there.

It's inspired/reminded me to use the sightings page here.

Added where I've seen the Walgreen's Battalion figures.

We know Cogman has been found at TRU but we would need a sighting and image from the community, so if any of you spot him, please let us know!
