Age of Extinction Wave 3 figures have been spotted at Canadian retail. Here is a picture of Hot Shot taken at Walmart in Laval (on boulevard Saint Martin).

The other figures that come with this figure in the box are Bumblebee (in his updated form) and Snarl were already sold at the time this picture was taken.

If you're talking strictly Construct-Bots as far as this post then I can't help you- 'cause I don't know. If the Bumblebee/Stinger/Strafe set you mean is the Deluxe Strafe with Legion 'Bee and Stinger, I've seen that one at a couple of different local Walmarts for several weeks now.


Strictly Constructbots. Strafe is done in the same colors as that exclusive Grimlock and Stinger is a repaint of Bumblebee.

Almost at the end of the simplified Transformers: Age of Extinction line, fellow Seibertron.com user chuckdawg1999 has shared another video review, hitting the Decepticon-but-not-quite-spot with Galvatron. Check out the clip below, and leave a comment on the line - if you picked any up - in the Energon Pub!

I've gone back and forth but I have to say, Galvatron is the best One-Step changer from the AOE line. It has a really unique transformation that's a lot of fun to work back and forth. The details and paint are solid too. If there's one figure to get from this simplified line it really is Galvatron.

Wow. I mean, wow. That 1 step Galvatron is one incredible feat of engeneering! If I ever see him in stores, along with HelocoDrift, I'll pick them up without waiting for any sales.

Know what? At first, I hated the idea of these 1step changers. The early ones were kinda bad too. However, the more they create them, the more they come up with some nifty ideas that end up with some cool results! I'd never thought I would say this, but I'm looking foward to see what will they come up next.

I was doubting if I ever would pick up a one-step figure, but if it's ever going to be the case... Galvatron would top the list.

Galvatron looks amazing. That head is even better than the one on the Voyager. I'd say he is up there on the list in terms of One-Step figures, but Steeljaw, while very simplistic even in One-Step terms, is a really nice figure in both modes. Stinger is painfully simplistic, but it looks SO good.

Galvatron, though...you sexy beast.

I know its not intentional but I can't help it.

In the box with all that kibble raised above his shoulders, AOE Hotshot reminds me of one of his predecessors:

I dont see how Galvatron is better than that one step Drift. That helicopter drift is so sleek while Galvatron has this giant backpack.

Wow. That price is reason enough to stop collecting. I'd rather save up and get 3rd party figures.

If you're looking at AoE TracksHot Shot, I'll say one thing: Canadian, not US. Though I will agree prices are high wherever you go.

Imagine he knew the Euro Price? And in Japan, they spend 25$ per deluxe at retail. And I just learnt that in England, MP Grimlock was selling for 99 pounds. Thats 157 $ US!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Euro prices are nuts, but the 20%-off promo in the Netherlands soften the blow: €22 instead of €27 for a Deluxe is closer to the original level. I hope it's a permanent change, I'll find out by next week.

Still, at 22 euros, thats about the same price Japanese retailers sell their deluxe Takaras. But they get the better deco. Man, I will remember those prices the next time I think I am paying too much for a deluxe here in Canada. But arent you coming over to the US soon? You will finally get these low low prices.

Also, while the color scheme does look like G1 tracks, it is also quite reminescent of Cybertron Hot Shot

Way back at Botcon we had a glimpse of a two pack being released containing the Smash and Change Optimus Prime along with Flip and Change Grimlock from Age of Extinction. This set has finally been sighted at a Kohl's store in Grand Blanc, Michigan by site owner Seibertron's dad Kevin Yzquierdo.

Image

This set is another opportunity to grab these up if you missed these upon their first release, or if you're looking for a fun gift for the younger Transformers fan in your life this holiday. There don't appear to be any deco changes to either toy in this set, at least not to this Seibertronian! You can also order the set online for $44.99 at Kohls.com, however be warned that their sale price is actually higher than the retail price of buying these two separately at many other outlets.

We've got extensive Galleries of both Smash and Change Optimus Prime and Flip and Change Grimlock available to help you find out if these are right for you.

Keep it tuned right here to Seibertron.com for all the latest news, and if you've got a sighting of a new toy yourself, be sure to let us know at sightings@seibertron.com, use our Toy Sightings resource tool, and be sure to post in your local Toy Sightings thread too!

Actually they don't, especially if you have a Kohl's credit card. They always have sales going on and you can also get an additional 15 to 30% off if you use your Kohl's credit card.

That pack was also just spotted yesterday in Canada, don't know if that is news worthy.

What is very itneresting is that in Canada, it's a Walmart exclusive for 25$..canaidian! (that's like 22$ US) And it is thus cheaper than buying them individually.
