The Buzzworthy Bumblebee Energon Igniter 2 pack with Bumblebee and Optimus sporting their alt modes from the Rise of the Beasts was spotted at Target yesterday. This 2 pack no longer has "Rise of the Beasts" on their packaging but instead "Transformers Bumblebee" which is the toyline where these toys first appeared, even though that alt mode for Optimus was not the one seen in the Bumblebee movie. This particular sighting comes from Vector Oracle who posted on TFW2005 and the toys were found in Albany, California.

Wow. That has got to be one of THE most shoplifter-friendly packages I've ever seen. All you need is a nail clipper - snip those threads, and boom - you can make off with the goods no problem.

Who would want to and would Target even care that much?

Not to mention, Cyberverse Ultras have been packaged like that from the start and as far as I have heard, never had an issue

What I'd do is buy them, then toy-swap them with a banana or something and see if the return would work. :KREMZEEK:

Out of absolutely nowhere, we have pics of SS Hatchet and (I guess Legacy? maybe SS86) Earth Mode Hound, both are supposed to be coming to Buzzworthy!

Hound looks pretty nice. No real need to Hatchet, but if the vehicle mode looks good enough I may be swayed.

While the internal parts appear to be all-new, it looks like the vehicle shell components are all reused from Crowbar, so he should look very similar to this (without the dreads hanging out of the back)

I'm kinda split on that Hound. The robot mode makes him look very simple, but the parts look like his Jeep mode will be good. At the same time, I really like Siege Hound.

He's great. Just what I wanted.

Prepare for lots of Siege Hounds making their way to e-bay. Out of nowhere, these two images below popped up, and we have no original source at the moment. We see an Earth mode Hound based on the Siege Hound toy, with G1 colours and remolding, as well as DOTM Hatchet, which would complete our trio of Dreads from DOTM. While neither are straight redecos, they are said to both be part of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee line. We tend to know non exclusives early in advance, and the fact that these are exclusives is why we had not heard of them coming. They are in the next wave of movie deluxes released in the Target exclusive line.

Slap a coat of browns on that Hound and we've presumably got our Legacy Detritus.

Neither of these are for me, but I know they've been heavily asked after by the fandom as a whole, so good to see they exist.

I hope that Hatchet holds together better than Crowbar. If that Hound looks half as good in hand I seriously doubt I'll buy another Masterpiece.

Don't care about the dread but Hound looks good, though I don't like how little molded detail is on it and how soft it is. Makes me scared that CHUG is going to go into the overly cartoony aesthetic that masterpiece went back in 2016.

Same with the colour they used for the thighs, abdomen, winch, neck and face instead of grey or silver.

I've been worried about this since the reveal of Legacy Kickback (Specifically the shape of his thighs) and noticed it with some of the Kingdom figures, and more recently some SS86 figures, namely Perceptor and the voyager van mold.

I knew I skipped out on Siege Hound for a reason....

While I get what you mean by being simple looking, it looks as I expected and what I assumed many wanted this release to look like.

I wonder about that. They seem to be going modular with all of the Junkions in Legacy this time around so I have my doubts about Detritus being a Hound repaint, I think he's more likely to be a retool of Scraphook. Maybe we'll get the repaint in Selects.
