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.

ER EX-20 Paradron Medics
ER EX-21 Bluestreak
ER EX-22 Deluxe Centurion Drone
ER Set (EX-20-22)

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.

Places like TFSource or BBTS will just let you know there's a delay and move on, big box stores don't really understand delays and have been fumbling these pandemic delays pretty badly. Walmart isn't much better with entire orders getting canceled or infinitely stuck in their order system on the way to the fulfillment warehouse.

Ok, glad I asked, and glad I only pre-ordered Cheetor from Target. Might do other figures elsewhere.

There's still no official word on it. There's still no official word on the US release, a guy just found him in Walgreens.

If that's how it has worked in previous years, there's little reason to think it will change, but no one can truly answer your question as yet.

Hmmmm......

So far, all Walgreen exclusives have been E.B. Games exclusives. Maybe except for TR Brainstorm. :-?

It's too bad we can't get a Bluestreak with paint and colors like Combiners Bluestreak. :( :VEHI:

Question: people have been saying that the new Jazz figure will be a part of some kind of S86 or Studio 86 toyline (is that the name?). What is that, and also, is there any hope of a Jazz figure in that toyline having 5mm points on it, allowing for Weaponizers / Fossizlizers / Battle Masters?

Missed this line when I read it before.

I think in this case they're using deluxe to mean "premium" to show it's more than just a figure unless they start calling him "Deluxe Centurion Drone" in comics or something.

Hotrod kup and scourge have reviews from primevsprime and none of them have the ports for the weaponizers

To expand on the "name", they will be part of the Studio Series line under the excuse that since it focuses on movies, the 1986 movie is fair game. >:oP

Don't expect anything special: they will be regular Generations-style figures (with some 5mm ports removed), just hastily shuffled under a similar but different line. Hasbro has done it before with the Reveal the Shield part of the 2010 line, which was technically a Live Action Movie line.

Were that they case, they'd use a certain kanji to denote it as such. The "Deluxe" part is in its name.

If I had to guess, they're probably using the name to explain why this Centurion Drone doesn't resemble these Centurion Drones seen below when it's supposed to be one of them in Japanese continuity:

You SURE about that?

Scourge has two unnecessary ports on the sides of his forearms and two on the sides of his lower legs down by his ankles, one on the bottom of each foot as well as one on his back. You might also be able to maneuver his backpack in such a way as to utilize the two side ports he had in vehicle mode.

Kup is lacking by comparison with only one under each foot. However, both of his arms as well as his legs can separate at the bicep/thigh swivels similar to a Weaponizer. So you can add pieces in between his arms and legs to wacky effects.

Hot Rod has one port under each foot and a pair of ports on the backs of his legs. He also has a 5mm peg on his left hand if you put his hand away back into the forearm.

Yeah, that's the reason I'm passing on ER Bluestreak. I like the mold but I'm holding out for a Selects blue Bluestreak.

I'm not saying this out of frustration, but it's kinda crazy to me how difficult it's been to get ahold of the ER Datsun bros...
Having to wait on Amazon for Prowl; I still haven't seen Smokescreen so am having to wait over another month for Amazon to deliver, and now Bluestreak is going to take x number of trips to Walgreens to find...

In the grand scheme, I get it, not any sort of deal... Just surprising it's come to this just to get a few toys.

It's difficult because one of them just came out and two of them haven't even been officially released yet. Exclusives are a little more work than mainline releases, but every group of three gets split across multiple distribution channels. We'll get ours in time.

Hope you're right... I guess maybe I should be more worried about getting ahold of Netflix Soundwave.
