We have been sent a list of upcoming toys for 2022 and we are breaking them down per line. Of course, since we only have listed names from ordering sheets and no actual listings, you should take these with a grain of salt.

This list below is for the new Velocitron line from Walmart which will be made up of redecos (at least mainly), similarly to the Netflix lines. These are characters from various toylines/continuities and it is unknown which molds they will use (though Clampdown should be from one of the Sideswipe molds).

We also have various retailer exclusives which are broken down by retailer. Target is getting MPM Blackout and Walgreens is getting Minerva. There is also a new Shine line that will have vs packs.

Velocitron

Deluxe:
Tra Gen velocitron Burnout x2
Tra Gen velocitron Road Rocket x2
Tra Gen velocitron Blurr x2
Tra Gen velocitron Clampdown x1
Tra Gen velocitron Cosmos x1

Tra Gen Velocitron Road Hauler x1

Leader:

So, will this be the first official Hasbro Transformers toy released at American retail stores to bear the name "Convoy"?

I'm going to be really disappointed if Minerva really is a walgreens exclusive. Being in the UK, the walgreens exclusives never seem to show up, I had to import Ratchet back in Siege. Hopefully, Pulse UK will stock it so those of us outside of the States have some kind of chance to get one.

This year's Walgreen's exclusive, Red Alert, did make it to the UK, and at brick-and-mortar to boot. I found mine at a comic book shop in Birmingham called Worlds Apart, but even then, he's still available on Hasbro Pulse UK. I think the same thing will happen with Minerva, she'll pop up in a few smaller retailers like Forbidden Planet or Worlds Apart, and have a listing on Hasbro Pulse UK. It's clear that Hasbro have learned their lesson from the Amazon exclusive Earthrise box sets, because it's a lot easier to get exclusives now than it was a few years ago.

For the figures listed here, I am interested in Minerva and Override, but seeing as Override is going to be an extensive retool of Studio Series 1986 Hot Rod, I'll wait to see how that actually turns out before I commit to buying one.

I honestly completely forgot about Red Alert. I forgot he was even an exclusive considering how relatively easy he has been to aquire with a lot of online stores stocking him, never seen it in stores but then again the closest to me that might is Forbidden Planet which I've not been to in a while. Hopefully it's a ttend that will continue. Some of the older exclusives are showing up here to, with the Rainmakers coming in stock online frequently so at least Hasbro aren't completely ignoring their European fanbase

With the voyager case count being 3, I'm wondering if these will have normal voyager and leader price points now, and no extra battle masters for the voyagers and no extra thing buried in play doh for the leaders. I believe the netflix voyagers were 2 per case, so this could be a change. Or, it could just be another mistake on the case counts.

Are you talking about his size? Like Huffer/Pipes/Warpath in Kingdom?

Netflix Bumblebee wasn't a recolor of a mainline figure, so maybe Road Rocket and Cosmos will be new molds too. On the other hand, Netflix Bumblebee's mold did not get a recolor as anyone else, so that sucked (really wanted Glyph).

I think he means it's a 1/Case Walmart exclusive G1 figure.

I'll be interested to see Override - I'm guessing she'll be a retool of SS86 Hot Rod, which will be different.

I think the licence issue may have prevented anything other then a 1 time use for the mold (hence why we got that bee in the worlds collide set)

At least there won't be anything stopping Cosmos from getting re-issued.

I was meaning the hardest to get hold of especially as there's one per case. :-(

The VW license is a pain seems to be restricted/limited to bee and no one else.

Well, Volkswagen is a German company and, after WWII, it is understandable that they would be uneasy about being involved in a children's toy brand that promotes warfare and (laser) gun violence, even if the one character they allow to use their license is one of the "good guys".

I get that.
But trying to hide the history doesn't change the history.

It could easily be argued that this stance ensures history isn't forgotten as opposed to not acknowledging anything and doing as if it's all business as usual.

Like right now, people are asking why it's so different with Volkswagen, well due to history. So now it keeps getting acknowledged and remembered.

Walgreens:
Tra Gen legacy Dlx Minerva x8

Probably another repaint of Arcee. It would be nice if they actually did the Headmaster juniors as their own thing and look a little more like them instead of just redoing the body's of previous headmasters.

Rumors/leaks say she'll be using the new Legacy Elita-1's mold, but also that Minerva is actually said mold's intended use and it's being released as Elita first since she's more marketable (I guess) in a similar vein to how we saw Titans Return Optimus and Megatron before we saw Octane and Blitzwing.

That sounds a little more promising. Will she be a headmaster or will she just be a "normal" transformer?
I'd like to see the version from Super God Masterforce, but they might be going more for the brief appearance in animated.

The figure that most interests me here is Black Convoy. I only need a Black Convoy and Ruination to complete my RiD2001 bad guys shelf, and I don't intend to get the retail Laser Prime, so it would be great to get that mold and cross a guy off the list to complete a cast
