Fellow Seibertronian Bounti76 has let us know about the special Amazon edition of Transformers: Age of Extinction Slog, the one featuring the G1 deco to accompany the SDCC Dinobot exclusive box set. It appears that a release date has finally been set, and those who ordered the figure will see it arrive by the beginning of January!

I got an email from Amazon a while back that they were shipping part of an order I'd placed. When the order was first placed, they expected a release date of mid-December for their exclusive G1 redeco of AOE Voyager Class Slog, but it had subsequently been changed to an undetermined release date.

Well, I finally got a follow-up email with them stating that they now have a release date! Attached is the email I got. Looks like he'll be arriving the first week of January!

Got my $25 Leader Grimlock from Amazon! :DANCE: Now the Voyager version will be relegated to my "Transformers that kids are allowed to play with" collection (as opposed to the "These are daddy's figures; don't touch!" collection).

I thought that would be the same with me but as it turns out, I take the voyager out more simple because it is more in scale with the others.

I cancelled this figure a long time ago. Hasbro toy shop sold me an SDCC set with a grimlock that had chipped chrome. They refused to exchange just the grimlock. When I got the set exchanged, the figures were perfect but the playset was all torn and damaged. I returned that crap for good and stuck with the colored retail versions. I really never needed these anyways, it was just an impulse buy. Fansproject has the G1 dinobots covered.

You sure, I heard their Slag wasn't as expected.

They already have them but not in big amounts and are not prone to reorder them sicne they are quite expensive, take a lot of shelf space, and might not sell right away. The only place you would not find them is in the province of Quebec in Canada due to language laws.

ive seen in stores: breakout battle, autobots united, leader OP/grim 2-pack
and TRU.ca has the dinobot 5-pack up for preorder, so i assume theyll eventually have it in store.

Thanks Shajaki!

Comment for William-James88: Do you think they will be in stores in the U.S. eventually though?

As I said, they should already be there. Only the Dinobot 5 pack has not been released yet. If you do not find them in your store, then it's because your store has not ordered or reordered it. These are not known to stay in stores for long. So if they are not there right now, then I would not count on them showing up again, except for the dinobot pack that hasnt come out yet.

But why not try online at Toysrus.com. Most are expensive enough to warrant the free shipping. I always shop at online retail stores now, they are more likely to have your figure in stock.

So, Alfes 2010 managed to get a hold of the sword. Cool.

Though, shouldn't this be in the Lost Age/Movie Advanced Series thread?

And the price of the Dr Wu sword suddenly crashed.

(Oh wait, that's made of diecast. Never mind.)

I must admit that I quite like the orange sword (it actually looks like it's glowing with heat as opposed to just being made of orange plastic) but this would definitely be a nice-to-have. In any case, I'm really softening towards this figure- the paintjob and sculpting are so nice I can actually ignore the backpack, or even pass it off as part of the design. I...I kinda want one. :michaelbay:

Fellow Seibertronian Bounti76 has spotted wave 3 of the Power Battlers with a picture to confirm it:

I found the latest wave of Power Attackers at a Target in Salt Lake City, UT.

Wave 3 features the following figures:

Dinobot Slug (Smash and Slash!)
Dinobot Snarl (Hammer Strike!)
Galvatron (Spinning Grinder!)
Grimlock (Spinning Mace!)
Lockdown (Missile Blast!)

If ever you spot them, make sure to report it in the appropriate sightings thread.

I think that G1 colors Slag is a must have, besides I've finding already clearance of AoE all around

Wait, they just recently spotted them in the US??? we got them a couple of weeks ago in Mexico! WE GET THIS CRAP EARLIER BUT WE JUST THIS WEEK GOT THE FIRST VOYAGER WAVE AND THE SECOND (without the first) WAVE OF DELUXES??? :-x
Ok, I hope whoever is in charge of the distribution here in Mexico gets fired, (s)he is doing a god-awful job. :sad:
