Thanks to Podcaster ScottyP, we have word that the new Bumblebee movie Power Plus figure Shatter has now been sighted at US retail! Shatter is a reuse of the Dropkick/Hot Rod skeleton, now in a new red muscle car look complete with Shatter's head. This figure uses one of the little energon igniter engines, which when activated powers the vehicle mode forward. This engine is compatible with all of the Energon Igniter classes of figures.

This is the first of 2 Shatter toys from the Igniters line, the second of which will feature her jet mode.

Shatter was found in Cary, North Carolina at a Target for $12.99, so head on out to your locals stores and let us know what you find and what you pick up!

OH, I bought that at the Northville Meijer a week and a half ago, but had no idea it was news.

My first time handling that mold, though I bought the other two a week later. The igniters themselves are clunky, obtrusive, and don't work as great as I'd like, but the supercharged modes for this mold and Bug Bumblebee are really growing on me for some reason.

Once I revisit Walmart, maybe. In the mean time, keep a lookout, everyone!

Well, I've had some time to play with Legendary Prime, and I gotta say, I love it. My favorite thing about it? Takara 'WeiJianged' a WeiJiang figure of the original EMOP. :lol:


Enjoy some comparison pictures:

I would have posted this earlier had I known it was news because Shatter popped up like 2 weeks ago at my local Target. I'm just waiting for Siege and Studio Series though, and they haven't shown up yet. >:oP

Thanks to Seibertronian sideswipe6520, we have word that the new Power Series Shatter and Blitzwing have made their way to US retail! As you might remember, the Power Plus Shatter toy, which comes with the little engine and turned into her muscle car mode, was found a few days ago, and how her Jet mode has been found to go with her car self, enabling you to have her in both of her movie alternate modes! In addition, the new jet Shatter wave includes the Megatron repaint with a new head Blitzwing, transforming into a tank, though we have no word if he will get a jet toy eventually.

Both of these figures were found in a Walmart in Wichita, Kansas for $9.84, so if these figures interest you, head on out and start hunting them down!

Managed to get a picture this time, with a note that Optimus Prime is also part of the Wave. It's a retool of the Power Plus figure, without the engine this time:

Found in a Walmart in McKinney, Texas.

As with the majority of past years, another Transformer has hit the nomination rolls for the Toy of the Year awards. This time around, it happens to be DJ Bumblebee, the non-transforming, music-loving figure from this year's Bumblebee movie. Also as with years past, you can head over for Bumblebee to win! He's been listed in the action figure catagory, against toys like the Mattel Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Dinosaur line, the Pokemon Battle Feature action figures, and more. You can place your vote in the Action Figure category and all the others here, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for an update if Bumblebee takes the award home!

So let me get this straight... The Transformer that they nominated for Toy of the Year... Doesn't transform? That's like nominating a dead person for the Sexiest Man Alive. Or nominating The Room for Best Picture.

Some very expensive giant (maybe) shelfwarmer is nominated "toy of the year" by some organisation no one care about.

K.

Someone think this may be a way to get rid of this bad idea's stocks.
Seriously, for around the same price you get the Power Charge Bumblebee, one of the BEST noisy Bee toy to ever came out in years.

Psst! Just because adults who play with toys don’t like it doesn’t mean kids who play with toys don’t like it either.

I'm looking at it from BOTH perspectives. My 9yo self would have found that DJ Bee fun for at least 10 minutes. Then it would have been forever ignored. 60$ down the drain.

The modern kid will unpack that expensive but oh so cheap looking toy instead of the latest video game. Cue the entitled crying.

Seriously, the "it's for kids" is a fallacy. The big Power Charge Bee is ALSO mainly aimed at small kids. Yet there's way more bang for the same price point as the DJ Bee. I compared toys in the same line here. A line where every toys are aimed at the same public. I compared apples with apples.

I would aknowledge your point if I had taken a Studio Series figure as an exaple however.

Normally I'd vote for any transformer that gets this kind of nod just to support the brand, but I can't back this choice.
