Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, SGMLordMirage, has recently gotten the Walgreens exclusive Transformers Earthrise Deluxe Class Bluestreak, and has shared with us these new in hand images of the figure! Bluestreak is a redeco (and new head) of Earthrise Deluxe Class Smokescreen (who is also redeco'ed to make Autobot Alliance Deluxe Class Prowl).
These include a series of comparisons to the Siege Datsun Brothers mold through Siege Deluxe Class Prowl. The photos also give a demonstration of Bluestreaks transformation.
SGMLordMirage had this to say about the toy:
I hadn’t messed with him that much other than taking the photos. I mean it seems like a decent mold, obviously it is a lot different that the Siege molds but with similar transformations. It is definitely nice to get the shoulder rockets versus buying add ones like I did for my Siege Prowl. I do love the colors even though i know some would want him in a bluish color. I hadn’t planned on buying ER Smokescreen but now having this, I may end up getting him
Are you hunting for Bluestreak? Have these images convinced you to track him down? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!
Well, Wave 2 of Earthrise Deluxe figures are just now trickling out to retail in the U.S., after an eight month wait between Waves. Yet, surprisingly, Seibertronian Mindmaster has already found Wave 3 Deluxes at two different Targets in El Paso, Texas. Photo proof is below.
This Wave, consisting of Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker, seems to be showing up right on time, as most preorders were scheduled for October. Hopefully, this won't mean that Wave 2 will be scarce on the ground.
So are you all excited by this news? Do you plan on picking up any of the figures from this Wave? Let us know below, and happy hunting!
We have quite a bit of Cyberverse news to get through. Firstly, below you will find video reviews from Chuckdawg for the following figures:
Battle Call Officer Class Bumblebee
1 step Cybertronian Megatron
Ultra Class Skullcruncher
Those are all below but before we get to them we also have some sightings. Officer Class Bumblebee (the giant one that has a face that looks like Gypsy Danger) was found at Canadian Walmarts. In Australia, the Warrior Starscream/Hammerbyte wave was found at Toyworld, a toy store with not too many locations, that also got their hands on the exclusive Slipstream figure. That came from Ozformers on Facebook and they also posted that Ultra Class Thunderhowl was found at BigW.
chuckdawg1999 wrote:Battle Call Officer Class Bumblebee is a complex figure, kids will like it for a while until the same sound clips bore them, but not until it drives parents nuts. Transformation is relatively simple, just make sure the panels line up, and vehicle mode unlocks more lights and sounds, but you'll miss the lights since the chest faces down. There isn't any cross-play with the Trooper Class which is a shame, the Trooper sized figures are now that much harder to recommend. Overall, at the price point, I just can't recommend buying the figure.
chuckdawg1999 wrote:We all know the deal with 1-step figures so I won't go through it again. Megatron is fun and a great representation of its Cybertron design. As always I appreciate how Hasbro has been able to work an action feature into such a small and simple figure.
chuckdawg1999 wrote:When first revealed some months ago Skullcruncher was a pleasant surprise, then nothing; no leaked in-hand images, no early reviews, nothing. So it was a pleasant surprise when the figure showed up in-stock on Amazon. The figure really doesn't disappoint, transformation is fun and the armor gimmick is one of the best I've seen. If you're a fan of the Cyberverse line this is a definite pick up, for those who might want to try something new with their Transformers, give this figure a shot too.
We have quite a bit of Thunderhowl news. Firstly, we've been getting sightings of this new deluxe figure since early October and it seems he is becoming easier to find at Targets across the US as the days pass.
Him being found means we now have a good look at him. Below you will find plenty of images from fellow Seibertronian D-Maximus primal along with a video review by Emgo. The images show a comparison with the Ultra class figure, which is the same price. You'll let us know which onw you like best. D-Max also has a written review posted on our boards if you want another opinion.
We also have shots of the now fully built Maccadam.
So we went from having little news of Transformers Erthrise Bluestreak to basically having all the news. While Hasbro is still mum about this guy, Takara officially revealed him along with their release of Deluxe Centurion Drone (that's the toy's actual name) and the Paradon Medics set. There are links of all those below, which were provided by fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade. We also have a US sighting of Earthrise. He was found at Walgreens proving that this is this year's Walgreens exclusive. He was found by TFW2005 Board member NotoriousBSG82 in Louisville, Kentucky. We thank fellow Seibertronian Aronjlove for letting us know of this.
All are TakaraTomy Mall exclusives. The ER Set is a bundle of the first three.
Of note is that the Centurion Drone has been renamed "Deluxe Centurion Drone". Yes, the "Deluxe" part is in its name and is not in reference to its size class.
It's also been given a small character description that states it to be "A drone soldier who protects Cybertron's supercomputer vector Sigma." This is based more on the cartoon Centurion Drones rather than the IDW ones that the toy is actually based on.
The last of the original live-action movie Autobot cast is finally out in Masterpiece form! Yours truly spotted the Autobot medic Ratchet at a Target in Centerville, Utah this morning.
While browsing the Transformers aisle at my local Target, I noticed a Target associate putting away toys from a cart. I glanced at the cart and noticed the familiar red script on the box and on getting a closer look, I found this:
I didn't see a shelf tag for him, so I asked the associate, and on scanning the box, he told me it was street-dated for October 1st, so I was unable to purchase him. Still, he's starting to show up to stores, and can be purchased next week!
Do you plan on adding this figure to your collection? Let us know below, and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest Transformers news!
We have news that the first wave of the new Transformers RED Series figures has been found at US retail. Matty found them at a Walmart in Arizona, these will only be found at Walmart. These are around the $20 price point. The initial wave has Soundwave, Optimus Prime and Megatron. They are all 6 inches.
We have news that Transformers Earthrise Battle Master class wave 3 has been found at US retail. TF fan Shark Jumper Daimao found them at a Target in Southern California. They were priced at 5.99. Cybertronian Doublecrosser is the only new toy in this wave, here are the full contents:
Greetings Seibertronians! This news is for all the UK Transformers fans out there! Fellow Seibertron user, Casette Dan has reached out to us with a while load of preorder news and deals. Let's dive in shall we?
The voyagers in the third wave of Transformers WFC Earthrise have been found in Canada and the UK. The two toys in that wave are Megatron and the Quintesson judge and they were found at EB Games in Canada, thanks to a sighting from Cybertron.ca, and at Smyths in the UK, thanks to a message from a fan called Tim who sent us an e-mail.
As for the US, well it has been a long time since we saw some new Earthrise deluxes on shelves. Well, we knew it had to come soon, after Target got their initial shipment and now it's happened. This wave with Arcee, Airwave, Smokescreen and Allicon was found in a Target in Pensylvania. They were found by a TFW2005 member called Worldsgreatest who posted on their boards.
If you have found any of these, please share your sightings with the community on our forums.
