Thanks to the keen eye of Seibertron user william-james88, we have a confirmed retail sighting of the Legends-class Age of Extinction figures! Found in the Wal*Mart of Decarie Boulevard in Montreal, Quebec, william-james88 reported finding Legends Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Stinger, and Bumblebee.

To recap, Optimus Prime is a redeco of the Revenge of the Fallen figure of the same character, Grimlock from Beast Hunters Rippersnapper, Stinger from Prime Knock Out, and Bumblebee from Revenge of the Fallen of the same character. Check out the visual proof below!

Definitely want to grab that Grimlock. Not as Grimmy himself, but as an addition to the Terrorcon troops. I'd love to have 2 or 3 Abominuses.

Agreed, Bli needs a friend.

A little Solvaset and an eraser will take care of that pesky Autobot insignea without damging theplastic. Also, if you are feeling artsy, Blot makes a nice Slog...

Check the sig for more ideas too. ;)

No, don't bother to try to break it down and "explain it" to me. I don't want to hear it, it's bullsh** plain and simple and utterly stupid. As far as I'm concerned they are two very distinct lines and the only thing that they have in common is that Hasbro is doing a stellar job of screwing them both up.

And as far as this Hot Shot character goes... it's a re-paint, I'll bet money on it. It's wave 3, we still don't have full listings of cast and toys and Hasbro is in their "We don't give a sh**" mode and looking to fleece parents and youngsters for every last red cent so of course we are going to get myriad repaints and cheap filler so they can drag this line out as long as possible with just teases of "new" characters. Marketing 101 folks, plain and simple. Don't think for one second that there is an ounce of loyalty or any respect for continuity or regard for fans. Whatever you have your hopes and dreams set on for figures... think again. Y'all are basing your speculations around past releases or on what Hasbro may or may not have said and not a one of you is thinking from a greed/profit standpoint and therein lies your error.



its refreshing to see someone else who actually gets it, to bad theres so few of us to actually make an impact. But i have to agree its way to early for a new character to show up especially when all the bots & "cons" havent been revealed yet. Now if wave 3 shows up around or after the movies release then theres a very slim possibility that its a new mold but my money is on a repaint of a DOTM mold or TFP.

Thing is, I NEVER thought the 'legion' figures were great shakes. But from what I've seen, it looks like my fears were not groundless. Hasbro does indeed seem to be scrapping their usual Transformers package design and logo for this god-awful 'new' one.

While I applaud simplifying the packaging, the design stinks. I had hoped it was just Movie4 that would suffer from it. But it's spilled over to MP Grimlock, and to this new animated series.

It just doesn't have any snap to it. It makes them look like they're prizes in boxes of crackerjack, rather than cool toys.

Anyone who's complaining about the price, calm down. That's just how much they've cost in Canada for the past few years

Aparantly you never heard of Hasbro saying the following things


They are not using past movie toys for this line (they kinda lied as heli Drift is a repaint of Skyhammer so who knows)


and there are no toy only characters for this line

and there was a leaked listing and for wave three it said the following were in it

Bumblebee (probably the 2014 Camaro)
Stinger (probably in the wave 3.5 like what they are doing with Lockdown in wave 2.5)
and "rally car"

the Chevy Sonic is a rally car

therefor the Sonic is Hot Shot.


And man yo guys complain to much.

Am I the only one who thinks that the rally car would make an excellent Earth mode for Evac from Transformers: The Ride?

I still say they should have recolored Rippersnapper into Scorn rather than Grimlock, but whatevs. Might pick this one anways, I like the Prime Predacons. (Predaking better be back at some point in RID, BTW.)

I'll just slip into a coma cos my wildest wish for the AOE line has just been fulfilled.

This is truly the big time. A golden age.

Just, please, for the love of god, don't die horribly in the film cos I might start weeping in the cinema.

I don't mean to be rude here, but your theory about this being a Golden age?

AOE hot shot and maybe animated

Universe Hot Shot and the speculated AOE Hot Shot would be a buy for me, and it would make the most sense to me. To be honest though I don't expect it to happen. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it does.

Given the size of the toys they're using for the Evolutions deluxe packs, it'd probably have to be either RID Spychanger Hot Shot or Cybertron Legends-sized Hot Shot.

And did Animated Hot Shot's toy even make it to the point where it was anywhere near ready for mass-production before they ended Animated?

Hot Shot only got to the point of a resin prototype, I doubt they would be able to finish it off and market it though :-(
