With the Bumblebee film releasing wide soon, Toysrus Canada has reorganized to move ALL Transformers toys to the front of the store to set up a massive display. What you will see below can be found as soon as you walk into the store with huge Bumblebee Banners atop the plentiful pegs. While the Bumblebee toys are heavily featured and stocked, all Transformers toys can be found there, including the latest releases like Siege (Canada only has the Battle Masters so far) and BotBots. It is definitely striking to see this display amidst the holiday seasons since every Transformers live action film until now was a summer release, but it defintely makes for a more fun display and centers Transformers as the toys to get this holiday season.

The Brantford, Ontario store didn't have that display (it's probably only in bigger stores), but they did have the Micro Master packs, as well as one lonely Lionizer.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Scottimus Prime, we have a sighting of a rather unusual Bumblebee Movie tie in product. This product in question is a Glow in the Dark pillow! It comes in two designs, one being Bee's face and the other being the Autobot symbol. These were sighted at a Walmart in Centereach, New York.

Here is the images as provided to us which also show the display the pillows were found in which is Bumblebee themed as well.

Are you tempted by these pillows? Will you be cuddling up with Bumblebee? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

After Hasbro made a surprise tweet revealing the existence of Nitro Series Dropkick and Blitzwing we now have a clearer look at the pair. Coming from regular breaking news source Snakas we get to see a better view of Blitzwing in package and Dropkick in what looks to be a series of stock photos. As with other Nitros they come with Energon cores to enhance their alt modes.

Articulation is pretty minimal like the rest of the line, but is that double elbows I see on Dropkick? Sure, it's all for the transformation, but take the extra range of motion where you can get it. I mean, Nitro Bumblebee doesn't even have elbows and it's his toy line!

So what do you think of Nitro Dropkick and Blitzwing? Sound off in the Energon Pub and keep coming back to Seibertron for all the latest Transformers news.

Obviously, that Blitzwing is no triple changer. I wonder is a triple changing SS figure is a possibility, of is the Movie design impossible to realise in toy form?

He's not a Triple Changer, just a Seeker who so happens to be a Seeker, I saw the film during the screenings on the 8'th so I can confirm this.

If there ends up being a Studio Series Blitzwing it's gonna be a normal Seeker, Bot to jet.

Whay that name tho? Like if Astrotrai was there but he could only transform into a space shuttle. Bee Blitzwing could have been called Ramjet and be a conehead or something.

Anyway, I call an easy Nitro Zeus repaint like they did for Thundercracker.

*Shrugs*

I presume a combination of things like trademark and a leftover for when this was still a prequel as a (Movie spoiler about character) Throwaway Decepticon featured in trailers to kill off, akin to Bonecrusher and Sideways

But honestly were gonna have to wait and see to learn why this particular character had that respective name.

If it makes you feel better his name isn't even mentioned in the movie. (Although it is in the credits)

Hasbro's gotta keep those trademarks warm. It wouldn't be the first time and it won't be the last. For a recent major example, AoE Hound is obviously more a Bulkhead in terms of design. But Prime was already taking care of the Bulkhead trademark while in the meantime Hound was vulnerable.

I'm pretty sure despite the similarities that Hound was always meant to be called Hound since the name exited since at least the early days of AOE filming since it was the only name announced at the time (We didn't know who Drift and Crosshairs were for sure heck when we first heard their names Crosshairs was still going by "Slingshot") and the only name of the 3 new Autobots said multiple times and the only one who's name was said by humans (Crosshairs only had one name call from Drift and voice acting is usually done at a later stage then the filming for the most part)

Just a personal theory of mine, not a true fact or anything.

Maybe the audio commentary will discuss Blitzwings name & if he gets his own mold for SS we then have a solid seeker available for repaints of all of them (as great as Nitro is).

Liking the dropkick figure, which has to be my first for the non studio series Bumblebee toys-kind of feels Battletrapish.

That make total sense. And the fact that Blitzwing's name is mentioned only in the credits and on the toy box is a nice compromise.

To be fair, he's a triple changer in the bumblebee prequel comic :lol:

The Studio Series helicopter may be more realistic but I'm prefering the slightly chunkier look of Dropkick's robot form on that toy there (though he has his toes tucked in in one pic). Nicer colour scheme too.

Am I crazy or does this figure look better than the studio series one?

At least in bot mode.

You're crazy... well no cos i literally said the same sorta thing 2 minutes before you did. :P This figure's probably got worse articulation in general but yeah there's something a bit more appealing about it overall

I think it’s the fact that the arms are bulkier and that there’s more blue on it

And that they didn't have to care too much about matching scale or other things.
