Thanks to a report from Seibertronian westjames/notirish, we have two interesting pieces of news, both relating to the Transformers The Last Knight Deluxe Hot Rod figure! First up is another chance to grab this elusive figure, as he is now back in stock at Walmart.com!

Second is the strangest story: Hot Rod has been listed on Target.com in the US. This is the second time the (apparently former) Walmart exclusive figure has appeared on a non-Walmart website, further confirming that something behind the scenes has happened to change the exclusitivity of the figure. This might be good news for collectors and fans however, as, while he hasn't been spotted anywhere in the US at physical retail yet, he might crop up in additional big box stores other than Walmart.

Not quite, just odd. Brainstorm had the unfortunate effect of being (originally?) part of the main retail Deluxe assortment with the assortment code on his packaging, instead of being a standalone item with a single product code.
Speaking of which, RiD 2015 Deluxe Starscream has two: one for the TRU Clash of the Transformers, and another for the general Warriors Class for whatever reason (deco glitch?). The same thing may be true for Hot Rod, something that his original Amazon listing hinted at. Currently I have these recorded:

- C2919, from the Asia releases, directly from the toy
- C4058, from the Amazon listing

And, it looks like, the same wheels. Are any other parts shared? I think that's everything.

I am pretty sure those grey pieces connecting their heads to their bodies are the same, along with other pieces of the skeleton for transformation but I dont have it in hand yet.

Product code for that Hot Rod, please? Including assortment code if any, should be on the bottom above the bar code.

ASDA is Walmart in the UK so wouldnt it just be the very same Walmart exclusive number we have in the US?

It should be. I am keeping my eye out for that second, seemingly main retail, code for Hot Rod found in that amazon listing.

Coming to us once again from fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we have a video review of the Allspark Tech Megatron figure from the Last Knight toyline! Check out Chuck's review and his accompanying thoughts below, and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub.

[quote]One of the things that amazed me about The Last Knight toy line, was how the different versions of Megatron, were able to transform differently into roughly the same jet mode. The Allspark Tech version is no different, simplifying the transformation to the most basic steps, we again get a very good representation of its movie jet mode. While this line isn't for everyone, Megatron is a solid addition that stands on its own.[/quote]

It turns out there are two different Crosshairs releases for the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline. One has an issue with a wheel popping off easily and his guns not being able to peg into his cape properly. You can go to the 5 minute mark of the review below to see an example of such issues. He was rereleased soon after with these issues fixed. The problem is that both are being put on shelves at the same time in the same markets but the good news is that they are each coded differently so that you know which one you are getting.

According to Yonoid from Cybertron.ca, the embossed number on the back of the box for the fixed version is 72011. The one with the issues has the number 72081 instead.

Wait wait wait... the higher number has the problems? I thought the numbers are production run codes, which would mean the problems appeared later, not earlier. :-?

Regardless, that Crosshair is WAY to bright green. Look cheap. not "premier".

So I managed to get TLK Dragonstorm. He is alright, but I really want to love him more than I do. He is a bit too fiddly and he really needed to be different colors, more like his dragon heads than the rest of the body

Let's hope Takara gives Leader Dragonstorm the Movie the Best treatment that other TLK figures have gotten.

Picked up Scorn, he's pretty awesome except for the slight flaw in mine that makes it hard to move the peg in his tail arm. I'm very sad and confused that the wave 2 deluxes haven't even showed up here at all yet considering I've seen up to the wave 3 voyagers and legions.

That peg is difficult period. Optibotimus had trouble with it in his review. I got mine to rotate all the way, but man, I never seen a toy that tried to break parts of ME like that this one. I'm glad I pounced on him and Nitro when one of the two local Wally Worlds got them in. I ain't seen them nowhere since. Yes, we got two Walmarts around here within two miles of each other... on the same friggin road. #-o

I'm gettin' kind of hosed about nobody even getting Wave 2 stuff in. I'm seein' all sorts of Titans Return stuff, but it's still the same Wave 1 shelfwarmers everywhere I go. Oh well, it's close to Christmas, maybe they'll finally change stock for that? I'd love to get Crosshairs but I'm mainly lookin' for Cogman and Draggie to complete my Knights collection. :RUBSIGN:
