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.

How about another, lighter blue, Ravage or Stripes as Raindance, and a red Rumble as Grand Slam? ;)

I actually rather like the Legion class type VW Bee figure I got for £5.25 in The Entertainer and been taking it about with me in my pocket to keep me distracted when I am bored in places.

Gave it the gun from a TFP Bee of same size

43817415_268712923781671_2474204624712135850_n.jpg


Took it with me to rehearsal of one of the three plays I'm currently doing (this be before I realised the back part could actually click down a bit seperating panel from behind the back of the head. I just didn't even assume it could do that. )
43914575_524942637967591_1193974707652965021_n.jpg


Fun little figure. I added a lil extra paint on the legs and hands and feet (and that panel behind the head to help define the head more in the first pics). He has knee articulation from transformation but it looks pretty bad when the knees are bent. Still overall it's a fun lil figure.

Really nice shots! I love taking a pocket sized guy with me places, and that Bee fits you perfectly!

Still bummed I have yet to see Soundwave in stores. I really want to find him!

Bumblebee Legends, I mean Speed Series figures found in Debenhams Waterford, Ireland with 30% off. Picked up the VW Bumblebee for €5.95 instead of €8.50

The Bumblebee movie line seem to have reached saturation around here, now both Target and Walmart have the full range. I got myself, you guessed it, Speed Series VW Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, to go with their RotF and DotM predecessors (via their TLK redecos). It yielded something interesting: Speed Series VW 'Bee is actually taller than the DotM Legion!

Yeah I noticed Bee being taller than TLK Megatron and Dragonstorm. But then I don't even think of these lil things having any logical scale. They're not the 'proper' represantation of the characters on my shelves. They're just fun simplistic minature TF figures to carry about in your pocket to take out and play about with when needing an easy distraction from tedious or anxious situations. :P

Maybe he's pondering the fact they're a lot closer in height than a Legends-style and Deluxe scale figure used to be. :P

And damn I just noticed tiny Bee has lot of bit of my yellow paint from this right knee. Likely cos I've carried him about with me loads in the past week or so. I shall top up that paint when I have time. :P

Thanks to a heads up from Seibertronian Leokearon, we have word that the Bumblebee movie toys have found their way to Ireland, and it appears that the Irish are getting a pretty good deal on the Speed Series figures! The Speed Series figures were found in Debenhams in Waterford, Ireland with 30% off, priced at €5.95 instead of €8.50. While the sighted figures did not include Hot Rod, we can assume he was present at some point in time.

The Bumblebee movie toys seem to have found their way to pretty much every corner of the world, and with people finding the Bee movie toys relatively easy, we hope you are finding your own figures you want from the line. Let us know your thoughts on this Irish deal below, and if you intend to pick up any Bumblebee movie figures and if you have, what you think of them!

Thanks to a Tweet from site sponsor TFsource, we have word that Blacklai's Toybase has acquired the very soon to be released BB-02 Legendary Optimus Prime figure and has provided us with some in-hand images!

This new figure is an entirely new mold taking cues from the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Optimus Prime, but upsized and reworked to have some unique new touches to the design. The figure also sports a nice coat of chrome paint over several components. Included in the images are comparisons to the MPM-06 Bumblebee, the MP-10 Optimus Prime mold, and the Age of Extinction Evasion Mode Prime.

Blacklai notes that a lot of the joints on the figure are ratcheted, his hands open, the gun he comes with can store on his back, he has the option of a faceplate or no faceplate, and the gun even stores under the truck mode! He goes on to say that this is the best official version of the cab over movie Prime.

Check out a sample of images below, and you can click any one of the images to view the full gallery of shots. Let us know what you think of him in the comments section below!

BB-02 is way smaller than MP-10 in bot mode. But the same size in truck mode! There's some nice mass-shifting going on here.

That is nowhere near the original toy. Yes, it shares some deign cues as they originate from the same source material. But its bigger for one. The back and chest are in totally different places, and literally all of the limbsa are different. It’s not just an upsizing

actually, the transformation is pretty much the same, with few extra steps here and there. here's the transformation video.

That pic shows one of the things I hate about certain figures, where the hands are obscured, particularly on any side that restricts certain accessories. AoE Evasion Prime's hands are blocked from below so if I wanted to have him hold a long staffed weapon like an axe he can't do it. That new version has completely unblocked hands and it's a vast improvement. Also as a bonus has nicer looking panels on the underneath of the forearm too.

I don't think I'll get the new figure though cos price/size/doesn't really go with anything in my (now mostly Studio Series) Transformers collection but it's certainly an upgrade in a lot of ways.

That's the shield/backpack from Calibur Optimus Prime (the figure on the right). It transforms into part of his truck mode.

You mean it's finally IN scale with Studio Series. :D I think it has to be fairly widely acknowledged at this point that not making the first SS Optimus a leader class was a blow to the whole "scale!" fortissimo of the line. The realization grows starker and starker with every release. You could argue it's close, but it's just not there. Optimus towers above the cohort in almost every scene, and my SS is pretty much equal with Ironhide in stature. Needed another inch or so.

I have to hope that this legendary at a minor masterpiece price point tries to somehow straddle the line between MP quality and appropriate SS-ish scale. That's what I tell myself anyway.

It is based on a smaller toy, but it is entirely new. They did not use a single existing molded part from the AOE Evasion Prime to make this.

It's like how Siege Sideswipe is basically MP Junior, or how several Unicron era toys were similar to classics designs (I think I got those 2 right). They share engineering and Transformations and such, but no part of the mold used for one was used to make the other.

Hence, entirely new mold.

But you can say that about a lot of toys. This same logic would be that MP 10 is the sane toy as MP 01 but smaller.

Tis true especially with Optimus Primes. Quite a lot of them transform very similar to each other and most importantly to his G1 self. In this case though, there is very little distinction in the transformation. This however does not detract anything from Legendary OP.

Transformation is my primary play feature, and I want new and different. One of the reasons I try (and fail) at getting only one deco of a mold.

You mean it's finally IN scale with Studio Series. :D I think it has to be fairly widely acknowledged at this point that not making the first SS Optimus a leader class was a blow to the whole "scale!" fortissimo of the line. The realization grows starker and starker with every release. You could argue it's close, but it's just not there. Optimus towers above the cohort in almost every scene, and my SS is pretty much equal with Ironhide in stature. Needed another inch or so.


No. SS Prime may be a lil small but no way should he should have been leader class at all. That would mean Starscream, Megatron, Blackout, Grimlock and such would have all had to be even bigger and that would push the size and costs way too high.
