We've had our first reported sighting in the UK of one of the main products in the Transformers: Bumblebee movie toyline: Power Charge Bumblebee! This sighting was made by fellow Seibertron user, PrimeVsPrime. He reports that he found the toy in The Entertainer toy shop for £46.99.

Not only that but he's also provided a video review of the toy:

I find it kinda ironic that the power charge bumblebee, that is intended to be gimmick based, kids oriented toy, actually handle his backpack and kibble neater than the studio series version, that is intended for older collector.

Thanks to regular source of news on Weibo, user tf-factory (via 爆料人小明 this time), we have some new packaging art images for figures upcoming in the Transformers Bumblebee Movie line - including the Studio Series, more adult oriented line too, which means Dropkick, the KSI Sentry, and Shadow Raider are also featured below - with a significant spotlight on the titular character of course: Bumblebee!

Check out the kid friendly scout, drawn like one of your French bots (paging Hot Rod?), mirrored below, and let us know what you think of the new design and style in the Energon Pub Discussion boards.

Is that stereo a bit small? Cos it looks like the one I had in the 80s but I remember that the speakers looked not that much different in size than headlights. I dunno.

Pose is somewhat similar to how my Bee figure was laying here a few weeks ago when my bots were just chilling out waiting for Ironhide to arrive. :P

From Hasbro directly, via the official Hasbro Toy Shop, we have the first news about the new Transformers Bumblebee Movie toyline - including Energon Igniters lines, Power Charge, DJ Bumblebee, and the various role play accessories and masks - going up for pre-sale on the online store!

The landing page also notes that the new US release date for the movie is the 21st of December (rather than the 28th), though we're not sure this applies internationally too. The items can all be found by clicking on the mirrored image below, or the link above - let us know if you're picking any up, if anything catches your fancy, and if you're looking forward to the movie and the new line coming out, all in the Energon Pub Discussion Boards!

Earlier this year we posted a story about listings found on the Toysrus database. There were two exclusives that we were not exactly sure of. One was Thundercracker, which we later found to be part of the Studio Series line. Well, another item on that Toysrus list was Rebekah's Garage, which thanks to today's official reveal is also part of the Studio Series line. It turns out this item is Studio Series 15 Bumblebee with Charlie, the figure someone previously found at Target (only once). There was never an official reveal of the figure and now we have one from The Rockfather Magazine.

We see all the official stock photos including the different decos possible thanks to the sticker sheet that comes with it, along with the difference between the simple car mode and the suped up mode. As we know from the listing, and the article confirms it, this was meant to be a Toysrus exclusive. However, now that Toysrus in the US is gone, it is said to be an Entertainment Earth exclusive and it coincides with the listing appearing on that website for preorder for $29.99 USD, with a release date of this month. This means that the Target sighting was probably a mistake, especially since it was not in their system (similarly to how Titans Return Brainstorm was once found at Walmart). This would also mean that countries that still have a Toysrus, like Canada, can expect to get this figure there.

To preorder the figure, you can click here.

A while back, we finally had some photos of the Bumblebee and Charlie set, we never actually had stock photography or actually listings. Well now we do!

The comicbook released a article detailing the release of the figure. It talks about the figure as well as mentions the listing up on Entertainment Earth!

The figure itself is the original 01 figure but with less paint, but has a Charlie minifigure, as well as stickers and customizable parts.

The listing has some more stock photos, as well as a preorder date of September 13th for $29.99.

Interestingly, the box seems to have a Toys R Us exclusive sticker on it.

So will you be planning on buying this when it comes out?
Take a look at the photos below and tell us on the Energon Pub Forums!

Yeah, I want to get some of the "bigger" figures just to get one of those allspark igniters so that the legions can tow them. And is it just me or does the smaller igniter VW Bee look better than the deluxe one?

Oh wait, I know what it is, I like how he uses the real chest and thus has a more round shape.

Indeed it does! Just used it to get the wave 2 Prime Masters and the Bee Movie tiny Optimus Prime figure. Wasn't sure if it would work on a pre-order or mixed releases, but it did! After discount and adding in tax and shipping it only came to about $3.50 more than if I were to buy them together in stores.

While I am not going to pre-order and I'm gonna wait until at least October to start considering these guys, I do plan to get the 2 Barricades and the legion sized Hot Rod. both look like lots of fun!

I will also get that Charlie Bee and keep it in super car mode, that is sweet, and I would like that little Charlie figure. Gonna need to reorganize my movie shelves here anyways due to some new things and some new ideas, so this will fit right in.

Thanks to user gabumon on TFW2005.com, the Bumblebee Speed Series and Tiny Turbo Changers Series 3 at a Kroger in Utah.

It was found on a Bumblebee Movie stand, which also sells Rescue Bots blindbags and the Power of the Primes Prime Masters.

The Speed Series figures were $7.99 and the Tiny Turbo Changers were $2.99 each.

In addition to that, multiple Bumblebee toys were found in a Walmart in Canada, thanks to user joshuaDA on cybertron.ca. As we can see from the pictures, the Titan Changers, Power Series, Power Plus Series, and DJ Bumblebee.

This may get people excited for those who would like to buy the Bumblebee toyline or the Tiny Turbo Changers, as they are starting to finally his stores around the globe.
