Hot on the heels of our report on Cloudraker and Wingspan being Walgreens exclusive, we have good news for those who decided to wait on Pounce and Fastlane to be released on their own: courtesy of site sponsor RobotKingdom, we can confirm that the Clones that were previously featured in the "Chaos on Velocitron" and "Siege on Cybertron" sets will be available in their own two-pack as Amazon exclusives! According to RobotKingdom, the pair are set to be released sometime in August.

EDIT: The listing has now changed its pictures to remove the images of Pounce and Fastlane comfirming that they are NOT getting their own two pack at the moment. It was instead the same Wallgreens exclusive two pack with Cloudraker and Wingspan. It is also now sold out.

Whatever interest I had in the larger box sets has greatly diminished. Hopefully both sets will be available in August. Kinda wish they were exclusive to one store.

I'll just leave this post by Allspark user Nevermore here:
The only precedent for Hasbro using the same product code number for non-blindpacked products with different content were the three RID Mini-Con 4-packs.

Using the same product code number for different exclusive products that are exclusive to different stores is outright insane.

So yeah, I vote for "error on behalf of Robot Kingdom".

That's what my gut reaction was.

The image can be viewed below for one's convenience.

The Walgreens Deluxes are about $3 more (Brainstorm is $18 vs. Target/Walmart Deluxe at $15). Does the $23 price of their twins over at Robot Kingdom sound about the right price for these at Walgreens?

Is this the only Titans Return packaging that doesn't have Fort Max's head looming over?

Thats cool. I wanted to make some custom pretenders from these molds.

Was this actually confirmed by Robot Kingdom, or is this fake news?

This whole Clone situation is very frustrating to me. I had given up on the box sets, and decided to wait it out and see if Takara did two-packs. Now Hasbro is doing one. I hope this amazon rumor is true. I don't want to just have one of each Clone team. the whole gimmick is lost with out both.

As for the difference in packaging, I would bet that it was all a last minute scramble. They decided to scrap the last two box sets, but decided to go with the two-packs. I'd bet that box is the same as the TLK Deluxe box. The already had the die cut to punch those boxes, and they did a last minute scramble to get TR art to fit the box.

Who actually bought the box sets for just for the clones?

My thoughts exactly. I thought people bought them for Nautica and Ginrai.

Huh. I got them for everyone, but especially laser prime (and ginrai since I can reason a Japanese version with annoying white parts) and metalhawk since my triggerhappy has a janky vehicle cannon.

*Looks Sheepish* I mostly bought the first giftset for the clone. But, then I am a weird completionist with Classics/Generations lines... :oops:

Also, everything looks like the RobotKingdom order is for the set that will be released as a Wallgreens set here in the states. The pics on RK show both stock photos of the first two twins, but also a convention photo of the second two with the two pack box. I wouldn't call this "fake news" just "confusion by photo placeholders".

Now that we see it's a Walgreens exclusive, does it still fall into a wave? When I picked up Walgreens-exclusive Brainstorm, other Wave 2 Deluxes were on the pegs at Walgreens.


Brainstorm is exceptional as he's officially part of the standard Deluxe Class assortment (Code B7762), and not a standalone item like exclusives usually are.

That said, quite a surprise to see all 4 Clones released in 2-packs, each exclusive to one store, one being Walgreens no less! What's Hasbro been taking?

With that, I think it's safe to withdraw the conclusion that the other two box sets have been canceled.

FYI, Robot Kindom has a pic of this walgreen two pack in their listing so it is still unconfirmed whether the two pack is of the earlier clones or the new ones.

Why, you got Brinstorm as a TRU Exclusive in the SEA? He was the latest Wallgreens exclusive.

Exclusives never fall into waves since they are shipped in different boxes. Waves are only for mainline releases.

I have a feeling there're gonna be a lot of clone singles up for sale by people that have one box set but not the other. Who needs two Pounces?

Geez, Walgreen's set should've been sold as individuals.

That's probably the case.

What else was rumored for those sets?

Leader: Probably Godbomber for Magnus Prime?
Voyager: ? ?
Deluxe: ? ?
Legends: Cloudraker, Wingspan
Titan Master: ? ?

If the box sets are cancelled what does that mean for a domestic God Bomber release?
