Twincast podcaster ScottyP found a new Walmart exlcusive Mega 1-step Bumblebee with bonus Legends Class Stinger at a Walmart in Raleigh, NC for $24.97. According to ScottyP the stinger appears to be identical to the single carded Age of Extinction release but Bumblebee is visibly more yellow than his previous release. He also provided us with a nice image of his find which you can see below.

I should clarify on Stinger, didn't notice this until this morning. Identical robot to the single carded one, but no clear pink sword in this one. Oh, and different product code tampo on the bottom of the feet (meh).

The singles came weaponless, period. It's the 3-pack with Strafe and Bumblebee (which has a slightly different deco) that had weapons.

Ah, right you are! Looks like I switched up who got to hold the weapon on my shelf.

Don't know how I never saw pictures of this toy before, but I just stumbled upon it on Amazon, and let me say that THIS is an AoE Prime toy I can get behind.

Really compliments how much meaner Prime's new truck mode looks than his old one.

Disagree, Younger kids are buying the more simple, quick change, less articulated AOE TF 4 toys in decent enough number to make the line a success in most stores worldwide. These toys are perfect for 3 year olds as they couldn't Transform any of the 2007 Movie, ROTF or DOTM toys. In order for the TF brand to go another 30 years. It needs to have some toys the much younger kids can Transform and play with.

Don't see the problem with Hasbro making more simple toys for the younger kids. As HasTak is catering the entire MP TF toy line, Generations and CW toy lines towards older kids and adults fans.

HEAR HEAR!

Too many adult fans are egotistical hipsters who forget that a younger generation must take the torch to keep the brand going.

Isn't there a stinger other than the one step changer that turns into a pagani?Fans will be disappointed.

This is better than the disappointing "leader class optimus primes"No shell bits.To Hasbro:
You should keep the standards of the former leader class toys.

TakaraTomy announced a red Bumblebee redeco (no retooling done) as Stinger. General Japanese retail, so he'll be a bit easier to find than most. Best we'll get.

That's the Power Battler mold, you know that, right?

That was very well-reasoned, and I agree 100%.

I'm ok with simpler toys for younger kids, but I think they went overboard with it. Between the 1 step changers, power battlers, and those dino sparker things, there's hardly any room for much else.

Plus they could put more effort into them. I'm sure more of us would buy them if they had decent articulation. They've been able to pull off 1 step transformations in the past without sacrificing articulation, why'd they half-ass it now?

My guess is they think that the more articulation a figure has, the more fragile it becomes. Think about it, tiny pieces that break off could end up in the mouths of your future presidents and possibly kill them.

Yes.Such a shame that Power Battler(or Power Attacker?Someone help me!) has no backpack kibble compared to the TF4 FE OP and the TF4 Leader OP.The Japanese Stinger is nice and almost show accurate but even it is not as show accurate as the One-Step Changer Stinger.And that is a pity.Thanks!!! :D :D :D

I get your point but the kids in my family want something cooler even if they are tougher to change.Dunno if this is happening all over.I asked my 4 year old cousin brother,Creston and my 10 year old sister which did they prefer,one step helicopter drift or Generations voyager drift.They responded unanimously,voyager drift.Sure,voyager drift is complicated and Creston keeps asking me to transform him but overall,he likes it very much.Still,it would be nice if the simplified figures were just as appealing as the generations figures.

Even with what I said,if Hasbro wants to simplify toys,THEN GO AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kids keep the TF lines going.Imagine a 3 year old walking into a store,seeing DOTM Jetwing Optimus and pestering his parents to buy it.His parents refuse,claiming that the transformation is a painful and excruciating stab in the back,then the kid screams and throws a tantrum.I have seen this before.Believe me,Hasbro is doing a good job although they went too far on Leader OP.For the comment about
Meh!Mega one step?Not worth it.Poor BB,he cannot pose.
,I was just joking! :lol: Yeah,stupid joke.
