I'm pretty sure it's the energon igniter one.


There's like 4 different Energon Igniters VW Bumblebees. Care to be a bit more specific? :lol: :-D

FWIW, I think its the Energon Igniters Nitro Bumblebee.

Since the other's don't have the fender shoulder pads.


It's indeed the Nitro one, the largest one that comes with a Core. Just for convenience, the sizes from small to large:

Speed (Legion-size)
Power (without Core) / Power Plus (with Core) (Scout/Deluxe-size)
Nitro (Voyager-size)

I guess the news team decided not to pick it up (or maybe they're recovering from NYCC), but Target.com is running a sale. Spend $50 on toys and save $10, spend $100 and save $25. Plus you still get free shipping on orders $35+. Target Exclusive Greatest Hits Bumblebee Cassette Pack and Soundwave are both in stock as well as Power Charge Bumblebee and Tiny Turbo Changers wave 3 among other things. There's a good opportunity to save a lot depending on what you're buying.

Thank to Takara Tomy and their official YouTube channel - but also the Facebook page for fan community Transformers Never Die for the mirroring of the clip out of region lock - we have a new promotional clip for the Japanese toy releases (though remember: Hasbro and Takara Tomy Transformers are identical since the unification of the brand in the past year) that will accompany the upcoming live-action Bumblebee Movie!

In the clip, embedded below from the two sources, we get a look at Power Charge Bumblebee, the Legendary Optimus Prime we last reported on here, and the Turbo Changers / Energon Igniters line (with Barricade, OP and BB) - but also the Studio Series line outside of the Bumblebee movie. Check it out below!

Pretty cool commercial. I liked the stopmotion they used ;)^ As for the toys, I might pick up a few Studio Series figures, but definitely that Legendary Optimus Prime :x

So I finally got the 3 Soundwave Minions set with BB. I agree I like the look of the new Buzzsaw. Initially I thought it was going to be exactly the same as the CW one, and planned on selling it. But now I want to keep it.

Problem is...Now I have 3 birds...all that look unique, but 2 have the same name. This could have been a simple fix...

1. Give it a Bluish color and call it Garboil
2. Give us the Autobot Blue Cassette (Eject)
3. Give it a new unique name...

I was looking through fiction and trying to find if there were any other bird cassettes that would fit it's look, and wasn't able to come up with anything... Sorry I know its a nitpick, but as unique as these guys are, I still don't want to have two Buzzsaw's, and naming one of them something different would go a long way to satisfying my desire to keep them both.

Why does Hasbro have to fix it for you, why not just come up with your own new name and/or headcanon for the CW Buzzsaw? Myself, I'm on the fence between calling TR Buzzsaw Sundor from before he switched sides (yellow is close enough to orange for me), or re-purposing the JG1 name Condor for TR Lazerbeak as a generic bird minion for Soundwave.

I do go the generic rout often with characters that have multiple figures, gives you plenty of cannon fodder for the battles. Don't kill off Buzzsaw when you could easily kill off Condor instead.

I was just looking for suggestions that's all. I was just disappointed. Hasbro had so many better options, rather than go the completely illogical route to give us a character we already have, but redecoed for no apparent reason.

Got it, but I actually do see some logic to including Buzzsaw again. I'm assuming for a selection like this, they wanted to use all 3 molds so Eject was out. I think they likely included a redeco of Buzzsaw since he was the "oldest" of the TR style tablets released back in CW as a way to allow anyone who jumped in during TR to obtain a version of him. Combine that with Howlback already being a fairly obscure character, I'm guessing they wanted to use as many familiar names as possible. We're probably pretty lucky they went with Howlback at all and not just a redecoed Ravage instead.

I got both Soundwave and the cassette pack, and I'm quite happy with them. Howlback's got a special spot in the collection with all the other lady-bots. And somehow, I'm liking the One-Step more than I should (btw "switchblade" is a misnomer, Hasbro: it's more like a butterfly knife :-B)

Just two nitpicks on either set: Doombox's knees are loose but he can still stand, and Buzzsaw's wheel assembly on the right wing droops a bit because the rivet's in too deep. Plus he's got a slight nick in roughly the same area, a trapped air bubble no doubt. O well. :)

As for what to do with CW Buzzsaw, repurpose him! It doesn't have to be a cassette, any yellow Decepticon bird will do. May I suggest 2010 Mini-Con Longview?

:EDIT: Anyone hoping for an Autobot Cassette set with Steeljaw out of Stripes, Eject and Sunder, possibly with the alternate head, if any?

Hmmm, that would be very Hasbro-like to milk one more use out of them. And considering the Siege versions of the cassettes just don't do it for me, I'd be all for another cassette pack further down the Bumblebee movie line.

Edit: Although to do that, they would almost have to re-release Blaster too, wouldn't they?

Hasbro is going all out on the upcoming Bumblebee movie with several stores organizing displays filled with a variety of Bumblebee merchandise. We have several examples below. The first comes from our own Jon 3.0 who found a display of mugs, water bottles, lunch boxes and more. You will see that there is merchandise for both Bumblebee in his movie look and his G1 look. That display was found at Ralph's a super market chain in California. This chain belongs to Kroger, so as you can expect, other Kroger stores also had massive displays. You will find an example of a Kroger display from Fort Wayne which was posted by Rookbartley on the TFW2005 forums. Finally, a picture has been circulating online of an in store display looking like an actual Volkswagen Beetle.

If you see cool displays like these, be sure to post them here.

WOW. I really, really hope that after this movie has come and gone, every one of that display in the bottom photo finds its way into the hands of some loving collector.

One of the few policies of Toys'R'Us that I don't miss was the mandate that all displays had to be destroyed rather than given away, starting between the first two Bay movies I believe. I know it was largely mandated by the toy companies, and fully understandable that they didn't want nobodies making a killing by flipping them on ebay for 100% profit, but what a lousy waste. When I think of all those glued-together Lego Sailbarges with the now-banned Slave Leia going directly to the nearest landfill...

I'd be happy with just Eject (To me Stripes WAS always Steeljaw but...). I'll happily take any additional reuse of those TR Tablet/Minion molds so long as they continue to be compatible with TR Blaster & Soundwave.

Also, I wonder if Hasbro realizes it's not BB that's really the selling point of this, or the other SS sets with the Dino Cassettes. It's the Cassettes themselves. I appreciate the $30 price point, because that is exactly what you would pay for the 3 legends class on their own. The BB is basically just dead weight. I mean my kids enjoy it enough, but if I didn't have them, or any other nieces/nephews, or friends with small children to give it to- I'd probably have literally thrown it in the garbage.

I found one at my local Kroger. I picked up Speed Barricade & POTP Liege Maximo. Bumblebee toys were marked down with a discount. POTP weren't.
