Say what you want about the Bumblebee toyline but the toys were at least on shelves when the movie was out and now every single toy has been accounted for before the film comes out on Blu Ray April 2nd. A few toys have come out since the film was released in theatres like Nitro Series Dropkick and Blitzwing and the Mission Vision toys and fellow Seibertronian newsie D-Max has found the only ones still unacounted for at brick and mortar: Transformers Bumblebee Evergon Igniters Power Plus Series Ironhide and Soundwave. While he only found Ironhide, we know that the more coveted Soundwave is in the same wave and was probably bought on sight by someone else who loved that van mode. You can see the case distribution below. While they were available at Target.com, this is the first time we hear about them being found in stores. These toys were found at Target, Altoona, Pennsylvania. Ironhide was $14.99.

1x TRA MV6 IGNITERS PWR PLUS OPTIMUS PRIME
1x TRA MV6 IGNITERS PWR PLUS BUMBLEBEE
1x TRA MV6 ENERGON IGNTR PWR PLUS STINGRAY (ironhide or soundwave)
1x TRA MV6 ENERGON IGNTR PWR PLUS INFANTRY (ironhide or soundwave)

All the toys in a line appear at U.S. Retail? Has this ever happened before? Usually there's one or two that have very limited distribution and some don't show up in the U.S. at all.

In a movie line, I dont think so, hence why I wanted to write this story. It did happen with POTP though.

Well all in all I think this line was really fun and I hope the igniters gimmick is something that continues on. Pouring one out for the homies.

Looking for some interesting exclusive merchandise from the Transformers: Bumblebee movie? Japanese publication TV-Kun may have what you're looking for in the form of their newly announced "Red Fire Optimus Prime" exclusive figure! This figure is a clear red plastic "repaint" of Energon Igniters Speed Series Optimus Prime. Black Convoy of TFW2005 has translated the press release from TV-Kun's website, which details that the figure is tied to the May 2019 issue of TV-Kun magazine and will debut for the Japanese market on April 1, 2019 at the price of 980 JPY. Below is the image from the press release on TV-Kun's website for your reference.

What do you make of this Japanese exclusive figure? Do you love all things clear plastic in your Transformers? Does this figure seem worth the effort of importing for fans outside of Japan? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news on all things Transformers!

I guess it looks pretty cool, but I have no use for the regular one and much less use for importing one from Japan

Goes with the clear Bumblebee :) Speaking of which, here's a (Japanese, no-word) video showing him off:



The box also contains a so-called Secret Medal for the Kamen Rider Buttobasoul arcade game. That one is Kamen Rider Geiz from the current Kamen Rider Zi-O series.

7-Eleven Japan has something to say on 3/8. Thanks to fellow Seibertronian TrypticonCarne in the Energon Pub forums we've been alerted to a message on their 7Net Twitter page that announces, well, an announcement coming next week to the 7Net website. And if that isn't intriguing enough it's accompanied by a silhouette of what's likely the Takara Tomy Leader class-sized Legendary Optimus Prime for the Bumblebee Movie. Could we be getting another Ultra Magnus-esque 7-Eleven repaint like the MP-711 Convoy from last year? We'll know in a week.

Google translation of the Twitter message:

FYI, you may be better off posting those in the Siege thread since that's the line this Prime figure is from.

Right right, I meant studio Series. But I just noticed you did indeed post them there too. Cheers.

(Don't know why the robot mode pic didn't automatically apply with my previous post)

Robot mode looks quite elegant, better than the Legendary version IMO.
