Transformers News: New Production Shots of Target Exclusive Thrust and Runabout

It is unknown at this point if these two will be Takara Tomy Mall Exclusives or not.

Thrust and Runabout were announced at hasbros streaming event, Fans First Friday, click here for more of the reveals from the event!

Thrust is a redeco of the previously released Amazon Exclusive Dirge and Ramjet two pack (they are themselves retools of the Earthrise seeker mold).

Runabout is a direct redeco of his partner Runamuck.

What did you think of these? Did you manage to secure a preorder? Or are you gambling on finding them in store? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

I'm in the same boat, the very tip of the wing that becomes the back of the leg, and it was the Takara version so this would be a perfect replacement. I also never got Hardhead as I mainly went for the Decepticon Headmasters, ugh, I mean Titanmasters, so I might pick him up if I see him.


Yours, too? #-o

So it can happen again with this new release then?

(Mine was also Takara.)

It all depends on if these are straight re-releases or if they did something with the materials. A few figures in Titans Return used a type of rubbery plastic for pieces, and I've heard reports of the others breaking as well. Specifically, the flap on Skullcruncher/Krok where the Titanmaster sits has broken on a bunch. No idea why they used this type of plastic for the pieces they did.

Went to Target, Walmart, and two Walgreens with zero signs of any new Earthrise. One of the Walgreens did have a shelf sticker for WFC Deluxe but nothing on the shelf. Was hoping to see a Sunstreaker or Bluestreak.

They should be. Leadfoot was similarly sold out of preorders almost instantly, but at least at my Target, they ended up getting two cases of him, at 6 to a case. Same with 'Cracker and Skywarp.

Just got my Airwave today from Pulse (seems they're shipping out Wave 2 Deluxes one-by-one) and I noticed something interesting.

Image
After messing around with them a bit, I noticed that there's shared engineering between Airwave and fellow Decepticon Brunt. Specifically the softer metallic plastic parts and paler orange come from Brunt (knees, hips, wheels, elbows, and chest peg).
ImageImage
Airwave's a nice solid Decepticon, though he isn't as fun of a modulator as Ironworks (who's basically a living set of building blocks). I am head-over-heels for this color-scheme (wish there were more orange and blue guys out there). It's interesting to see that the Titans Return method of shared engineering still lives on with the Weaponizers/Modulators.

Yeah Airwave is really good, but in some of his other firms he just seems loose and unfinished, whereas Ironworks ( and Greasepit) seem to have everything tab in nicely together reinforcing the toys strength and stability.

Well, Wave 2 of Earthrise Deluxe figures are just now trickling out to retail in the U.S., after an eight month wait between Waves. Yet, surprisingly, Seibertronian Mindmaster has already found Wave 3 Deluxes at two different Targets in El Paso, Texas. Photo proof is below.

Image

This Wave, consisting of Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker, seems to be showing up right on time, as most preorders were scheduled for October. Hopefully, this won't mean that Wave 2 will be scarce on the ground.

So are you all excited by this news? Do you plan on picking up any of the figures from this Wave? Let us know below, and happy hunting!

Man, I hit a Target, two Walmarts, and a Walgreens today and found nothing new. The coolest thing on the shelf was a couple of Sky Lynxes at Target, but he was next to five Siege Shockwaves :BANG_HEAD: finally got my $12.99 Siege Springer at a Ross so the trip wasn't a total bust.

Man, Wave 2 hasn't even shown up here in San Jose yet, now Wave 3's coming in and it's gonna be forever until it shows up as well.

Woah, slow down, I'm still waiting on wave 2 in my area.... unless scalpers are snatching them all up and I have yet to see any. Ha, ha. -sigh-

My target had the new battle masters, so I was finally able to pick up slitherfang and double-crossed, but everyone bis swimming in wave one stuff that they just barely started putting out. Hell, one Walmart has put out 10 cases of the wave 2 as leaders in the last week. Time to drive over to el paso

I only want Fasttrack. My original Target online pre order said 11/1, but I cancelled it when Amazon had the deluxe cheaper $18.88) even if after getting pushed back to 11/4. At this point it's unlikely I'll see wave 3 in any Target store before then , so I'll stick with my Amazon pre-order. I just feel sorry for everyone wanting to see wave 2 in store, ER wave 2 could be the next TR wave 5...as in ,. not sold in most stores, which is unfortunate.

That's kind of a bummer that Sunstreaker's chest is the only area with a decent yellow color...
I haven't seen any of this wave, although I don't think I'm getting any of them anyway (really was considering Sunstreaker).
Looks like I'll have some more money for SS86 Slag, Kingdom Galvatron, and hopefully ER Bluestreak.

Here is hoping to see ER wave 3 in the future. I am personally wanting to snag Runamuck and Fasttrack. As others have stated, still hoping to see Wave 2. I have only managed to spot ER Airwave from Wave 2 at a Walmart.

What is going on with stores on the east coast ? No wave 2 in MD or PA and now we already have wave 3 in the west . Do I need to chew out a Target toy manager ?
