To add to our dinobot images, Hasbro has 'Leaked From Cyberton' more concept images. Here we have some of the mighty triceratops, Slug. Here we can see what he looks like in the drawing phase, as a grayscale model and the finished figure. Looking through these peices of concept art you can see all of the detalis that bring this character to life. You can find the original post of the embedded video on Hasbro's facebook page.

If you have not already seen the other 'Leaked From Cyberton' images, have a look at Sludge and Slash.

Well that, and the fact that almost every single TLK figure shelfwarmed for MONTHS after their initial release whilst ALSO taking up almost twice as much space as RiD and/or Generations.


This is really light shelfwarming compared to other toys more earning of that title. Especially where every wave 1 bumblebee would keep selling out.

I can honestly say the only two recent main line figures that actually shelf warmed in my area in the last 5 years or so were Voyager TLK Grimlock and Voyager TR Broadside. Even after nearly a year of TR Deluxe wave 3 being replenished on the shelves over and over again (nearly a dozen cases in one store) they still sold out. The only reason anything here went to clearance was because they were still putting out fresh cases (wave 6 and revision wave 4) up until a few weeks before. The only reason I was able to get a TR Voyager Megatron on clearance was because the box was mangled.

At my store the POTP deluxes get snatched up first. The TLK stuff tends to warm aside from the popular characters. I think my store just doesn't know what to order either because they order the wrestling figs (mattel) that no one wants rather than the lines that are in high demand. At first I thought it was a hasbro problem but now I realize that it's just my Target being out of touch with the customer.

It is a bit strange that Hasbro hasn't said anything about May Mayhem yet. But that isn't all bad news. Back when Groove was done Hasbro accidentally let the bulk of their supply go to Asia in early April leaving very little for the west forcing a second run released in the fall. The fact that we haven't seen any of the figures yet means Hasbro has finally figured out how to fill their leaks and possibly tightened up their distribution chain. We really should have heard something by now, I'm pretty sure in previous years they announced them in early April and started selling in late May which doesn't leave much time this year.

Well the news for Quickslinger and Brake Neck (Slingshot and Wildrider) broke on March 23th 2015. Groove was similar in 2016. Maybe Hasbro is waiting till later for these figures.

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Reluctantyouth, we have news that the Power of the Primes voyagers have apparently gone on sale!

This news comes from a Walmart in Peoria, Illinois, where a voyager Starscream was found for the amazingly low price of $10! Compared to the original $24.97, that is quite the drop. The tag also makes sure to say "Generations Voyager," meaning this is not merely just for Starscream, though the argument could be made the sale price is to help move Starscreams that won't budge from the shelves.

With this new sale found, will you dare venture to your own Walmart and investigate? Does this sale price finally convince you to pick up a Starscream, or maybe a Grimlock or other voyager if luck is on your side? Let us know in the comments section below!

Clearance isn't a sale, right? It's clearance. As in they won't be carrying POtP Voyagers anymore.

The new "Leaked From Cybertron" series really seems to be rolling, and it seems set on following a Dinobot trend, as our newest video surfaces today: Power of the Primes Snarl!

Snarl is part of the new Power of the Primes line, transforming into a red, silver, and gold Stegosaurus and is a combiner limb for the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus. He is the fourth Dinobot of the line to get a video following Slash, Slug, and Sludge. The video, like the previous videos, gives us a quick at the design process, going from grey model to a final toy. You can check out the video by checking it out below or by following the link to the Transformers Instagram or Facebook pages.

So what do you think of this Snarl? Are you enjoying these designer desk videos? Let us know in the comments section below!

That's not how it works, as far as I know. Clearance has always seemed like the Walmart word for sale

My Walmart never goes along with these sales that the other ones do. Nonetheless, I'm still gonna check and I hope that they count the Wave 2 voyagers, though that chance may be slim.

There's always a CHANCE that sky could show up in the next plannogram or an overzealous manager clearances it but that might not be the case.

Tons of people reporting $30 Rodimus Unicronuses also reported that Leaders were eliminated from the new layout in their Walmarts. Movie toys were just clearanced. TR was just clearanced. These aren't items that are coming back.

So yeah, Rollbacks are their 'sales'.

It's probably the only thing they could do to move the Voyager PotP Starscreams. Those are the only ones I ever see on the shelves. All the other ones are ones that people want to BUY ;)

I actually had a chance to purchase a starscream at even lower than that i Canada a few weeks back. But I didnt. Its then that I realized that no matter how good a deal is, if I dont like a toy then no price will make me get it.

You’ll save 100% of the price by not buying at all

the only thing good(not great) about that starscream is the combiner torso mode, now if we only had some seeker limbs :-?

I've only seen Starscream twice in stores and that was back in early March, maybe even February. I got mine for $16 on Amazon which I think is fine, but I'm glad I wasn't enticed into paying full price. Now Grimlock, I sure would like to find him at retail price or less. I'm thinking I might just pass on Sludge and Snarl if I'm going to have to pay out the nose for Grimlock.

All Leaders are pretty much non-existent around me too.

Hb must have over estimated 'screamer's worth/popularity. He's like PotP Bayfomrer's Bumblebee. The fig is like cluttering all the TRU stores I've been too!
It's either :

There are bands of scalpers gobbling up all the "we want figs" or Hb did another clusterfrack in distribution!

Or he's just another figure that's not selling as well as his wavemates - those happen all the time (Twinferno is probably a good recent example). I don't think there's really any way Hasbro could've reasonably packed less of him per case than they were already doing, and still actually distributed the toy.

Now as for whether it was a good call putting him in Wave 1 - the wave that almost certainly every store will get in large amounts - that's definitely up for debate, but I don't think this is exactly a distribution disaster on par with TLK or anything like that.
