Let us know if you intend on picking him up or not if you see him. This toy has been found at both Target and Walmart in the US for around $7.

I do like this model though, and the ability to pull Prime's trailer is a bonus. For 7$, it's fine

Do you spend a lot of time just staring at semi trucks counting the number of bars they have on the sides?
There you go, three bars on one side, and I didn't even have to look that hard.

Personally, I thought it compared pretty well and could do the job as fill in display, if it was not for the trailer hitch differences.

Coming from both Michigan and Manhattan, and both found at Costco (including on the online store here) for $49.99, the toy is an RC 1:12 VW bug with monster truck wheels for all terrains. We knew of the Camaro Bumblebee and the Optimus Prime truck from previous stories, but this one is relatively out of nowhere. Check out the images below, and let us know what you think!

There is a 5% "non-member" fee if you don't have a Costco membership, but regular shipping is only $1.99.
I saw the other day at Target they had the Jada R/C Bumblebee Camaro in stock, and on the shelf right above Jada also makes a totally not Bumblebee plain yellow R/C Camaro.

Spotted in two Walmart locations, earlier this week and yesterday. Looks like it might be the same chassis as the Monster Bug one. $54.99 online.
The car was last seen back at Toy Fair 2019 tucked in a shelf of Bumblebee movie merchandise where it went largely unnoticed. Bellow you'll find official photos as seen on Walmart.com.
And if you have any sightings be sure to let us know and post them in the Energon Pub forums.
