Yesterday, in the news thread here, it was reported that the new HasbroToyShop Catalog had Animated toys for order, and when contacted HasbroToyShop representatives were sharing with these inquiring minds that the Animated toys would be available to order on Tuesday next week.

At that time there were no listings online to support this, only the catalog.

Now we have proof that they will be going live soon, as there are now entries for each toy that state they are currently 'Out of Stock', although there are no images for the toys yet.

See the entries on HasbroToyShop.com here.

Is this further proof that these toys will indeed be available on Tuesday? Will they be able to be ordered, but then you have to wait until June to have them shipped, or will they be able to be shipped right away? Please chime in with your thoughts, and please let us know if you are successful in ordering them!

I bet its legit but i think when you order them you'll probably get them just a little earlier than the release date.

I know it will be order now and ship on june. That's a reason it sucks. Why even bother outting them up, just to put us down.

The guy told me they would be in the STORES before Tuesday more than likely. I have X amount of some of them already so why wouldnt they be for sale now. They specifically told me it WASN"T a preorder.

Just got off the phone with them. Besides whats listed, there are two MORE pages not listed yet. Far as when they ship out, the girl had no clue. I hate talking to girls about Transformers, most have no clue what they are anyways. If it were a guy, I would have got all the info. :(

So first it's the scalpers; the ones who push hard enough with their wallets and get what they want first. And then it's the rest of us who get the 3rd-level toys with the kinks worked out.

Brilliant plan, oh mighty leader. I'll just be over THERE after the bodies of our allies start piling up. :lol:_=

I may just order them online, since I have at least 4 other people in my house who want em as well. It's better than running all over town looking a specific toy (Deluxe Barricade) like I did for the movie toys. Plus with the code we'll get 10% off AND free shipping. I wonder if other sites we'll give us similar deals.

This is the first time I've gotten excited about a toy release. My younger brothers are loving it too, finally something we can agree on.

Oh and Archatron that says more about the individual not the gender. You can't expect evreyone in a toy store to know about every line, no need to judge man.

I received my Hasbro Toyshop catalog the other day, and noticed the animated figures for sale. I haven't called, but I would say that the items will be on backorder until they come out in the stores, as was done previously. They do show as out of stock online. I work for a very large catalog/internet retail company(HSN/Cornerstone), so I'm sure that the catalog was designed and printed a couple of months ago, before the finalized shipping times were released(this happens quite often for catalog companies). Therefore, you can probably order them, but you won't get them until June(unless we're very very lucky, and Hasbro has been teasing us). However, Hasbro had a lot of problems with getting the Movie toys out on the shelves in the stores, so I'm sure Animated will not be any different. But...as stated before, 10% off and free shipping is pretty good. If you like, here's the number: (800)548-2696 Catalog Coupon Code: SPRCAT8 Offer is good for 10% off and free shipping for any order $50 or more, and is valid until 4/30/08. Not valid with any other offer blah blah blah blah.....

:twisted:

So we still don't have any idea how long it will be until they come to retailers?

I heard it was going to be in June. Like the 22hd or 24th but don't quote me. Definitely using the offer though. Does anyone know when Blitzwing will come and what class he will be? will he come during the first wave or will it be later in the year?

Archatron: I understand no prob dude.

Blitzwing will be voyager class. I know nothing else.
Re: HasbroToyShop Now Has Animated Toys Listed As 'Out Of Stock' (661329)
Posted by Archatron on March 21st, 2008 @ 4:06pm CDT
B-wing is voyager and second wave. Most of the cooler ones are in the second wave, Grimlock and such, I believe. If so, I've pretty much got the first wave except Prowl and Lockdown and that sucks.

Blitzwing is wave three at the earliest.

Here's a question for everyone:

IF these are suddenly listed on Tuesday, but are NOT in stores (which I'm assuming will be the case),
are you guys going to go ahead and order?
I know it's a great deal, but I usually like to hand-pick as many of my figures as possible...

The real dilemma for me is that most of these I'll buy 2 of...
Is the discount worth potentially getting beat-up packaging and/or crappy paint apps????
Part of me wants to buy one of each online, and find one of each in stores...
But then I'm not saving as much with the online deal.

HTS has a limit of one per item now on all their products and if you try to put another order in, a separate one, they cancel both so if you wanted two your SOL unless you use two e-mails, CCs, and addresses.

Try to order multiples and Hasbro not only cancels both your orders, but they might flag you as a dealer - making it difficult to place future orders.


In my experience, by the time HTS ships you will be seeing them on store shelves.

They are up on the site now, but it is a pre-order. They ship around June 23rd.
