You remember the news of Takara releasing the Hasbro Titan Masters in better deco? It being a wonderfest and Cybertron Satelite exclusive spread some fear for the price. Satelite Exclusives have been very expensive in the past, especially for the west where with importing costs, like last year's Warrior Black Knight Bumblebee for $60. However, the situation may not be so bleak this year because we have a listing from Robot Kingdom for this set and it is at the very reasonable price of 25$. Of course, the extra $20 it costs to ship it out anywhere is not as fun but fellow Seibertronian Emerje realized that for Robot Kingdom to sell it for this low compared to the Yen price it has in Japan must mean that this wont be exclusive afterall, and have a more readily available release from Hasbro Asia.
Emerje wrote:To be able to get these for $25 must mean there'll be an Asia release. $25 is less than the exchange rate by about $1.50 and doesn't include any type of import markup. Keep an eye on TFSource and BBTS in the coming days.
So, instead of looking at $60 like previous Satelite exclusives, this would be more around the $40 price point. Would you get it for that?
Did any of you miss out on those Robots in Disguise Titan Change Heroes? For those that forgot (since this is from 2015), those were the shampoo bottle type Transformers that actually transformed. They were surprisingly fun and did what they were there to do, pleasing to a much younger audience. There is a review below as a refresher. These are back on the shelves now in case you missed the, packaged under the new Combiner Force subline, and they were found at a Toysrus in long Island by Scottimus Prime. They actually include the Titan change heroes and the older 3 step Sideswipe under the same wave.
Thanks to Seibertronian rodimusconvoy13 we have a new sighting for the Combiner Force toyline for you guys to check out. The new figures in question are 3-steps Grimlock and Thunderhoof in new Combiner Force packaging, which as a result includes some sort of action gimmick for each. Thunderhoof appears to be a repaint of his original 3-step version but with darker colors and some sort of gimmick involving a 'hyper hook' while Grimlock appears to be a whole new mold with a 'hyper swoop' gimmick (Dino-pun intended?). These figures were found in a Meijer in Ann Arbor, MI, so head on out and start hunting these new 3-steps!
We have three sightings for you minicon hunters and Combiner Force 3-step fans to check out.
The first comes to us from Carytheone who discovered that the wave 3 and 4 minicons that included the likes of Blizzard Slipstream, Hammer, and Swelter among others, have begun to show up at 5 below. This sighting was confirmed by yours truly, suggesting that this is indeed a widespread sale. So if you are interested in some minis that haven't hit regular retail, go find a 5 Below!
The second sighting is from Destronmirage who has discovered that at least his Walmart is trying to rid itself of the minicons by placing them on a $2 sale. So check out your local Walmart to see if you can find some cheap minicons there!
Finally, Seibertron himself has reported that the new Combiner Force 3-step Optimus Prime and Bumblebee have been spotted at his Walmart in Mount Prospect, Illinois. These new figures are based on the designs of the previous 3-step changers, but they feature some new tricks in vehicle mode that resemble the minicon activators, just minus the minicon.
Check out the sightings, and head to your locals stores to hunt down these new Robots in Disguise Products!
After the US sighting back here, we also have a UK sighting of the recent Transformers: Robots in Disguise Combiner Force figures, including Blastwave, Alpine Strike Drift, Stormshot and a deluxe Starscream! They were priced at £18 (~21 USD) at Sainsbury's in Mowbray, and spotted by fellow Seibertronian Collectotron - if you see any yourself make sure to flag it up in our Sightings database too!
Fellow Seibertronian Tigertrack has found the newly known Rescue Bots toys at Target in Livonia, MI. These are the Arctic Rescue Boulder and Bumblebee Rock Rescue Team, which appear to be redesigns/redecos of the two characters with a specific emergency theme to them, and an added combiner play pattern for the other elements of the set, including a Griffin! These are $19.99. You can see images below of this finding and more when they were first found online.
Seibertronian Death-Ray Charles has also found these in the Massachusetts area at Target as well.
Also via Bounti76 and their Walmart store in Centerville, Utah, we have a first sighting for the second wave of Transformers Alt-Modes figures, the superdeformed tiny robots with a big head - as seen back at NYCC. They come in blind packs, but your fellow Seibetronian was able to snag a Cliffjumper and a Sideswipe. Check them out below!
Part of the new Combiner Force sub-line for Transformers: Robots in Disguise toys, the new class of Activators is appearing back in our plastic lives - many were first seen here - and thanks to fellow Seibertronian Bounti76, we have the first second US sighting in Centerville, Utah, and its Walmart store. As you can see pictured below, Strongarm and Trickout were available, and we're told the Bumblebee two-pack also was, as we reported a couple of weeks back- happy hunting!
We have a new sighting for you to check out today, this time in the form of a video showing that Combiner Force is hitting US retail! Youtuber Panda Prime Productions was kind enough to take this video from the local walmart, showing Combiner Force Beeswipe (Bumblebee and Sideswipe) And Prime Strong (Strongarm and Optimus Prime). In the video, it is shown that the figures appear to be going for around $9.84 per 2-pack, about the price of a 1-step changer. Now that you know they are hitting the shelves, go out and find yourselves some Combiner Force combiners!
In Italy, as some other countries in Europe, the 6th January sees the celebration of the Epiphany (if you're into sorta-religious celebrations, that is) and the end of winter festivities nation-wide. For the occasion, much like for Easter and other holidays, Hasbro has released a Befana - the Italian name of the day - themed Robots in Disguise stocking. Though I am not sure what is inside these, expect sweet treats and maybe a small toy, as is customary for the day, or a lump of coal if you've been bad!
