Hmm, Berserker looks...OK I guess. Might go for the DotM version instead though. Or buy both, I dunno.

I've had a tradition since ROTF where I would get the deluxe Bumblebee for the new movie in the first day they came out, but I don't think I can continue that since the wave 1 Bumblebee isn't what he looks like in the movie. I'll wait for the new mold Bumblebee later this year.

Rats, same for me! I'd check later in the day if you can manage though, one of my Targets I called said they had a couple boxes, but they weren't out on the shelf yet. I'm going to recheck mine in a couple hours on my way to Toys R Us. Fred Meyer was even worse, they said they had some new figures but weren't putting them out until tomorrow because they didn't have space on a shelf, and I'm going to go visit my parents out of state tonight! If I get lucky maybe I'll find something over there if I can't get what I want today.

So in other words, more overpriced junk is now finally out?
I'm boycotting.
Thanks Hasbro, thanks for making it SUCK to be a UK tf fan.

Well since the toys are out, I look forward to people sharing their thoughts. Am I the only one who is unimpressed with these?

There are 3 new molds in wave 1 (in terms of non gimmick toys) and in order of best to worst I would say:

Voyager Optimus Prime
Deluxe Berserker
Deluxe Barricade

We've got more to add to the absolute tidal wave that has been TLK toy news today. This time we've got some additional images of everyone's favorite Predator-looking lad, One Step Beserker! Via an Amazon listing for the currently unavailable figure, we have new stock photography as well as confirmation the B-zerk is indeed Gamma Ray, the last placeholder product code name. Other Amazon Listings also confirm that Pluto was one-step Megatron and Lunar eclipse was One Step Grimlock. Check out the new photos below, featuring his slightly more generic, unlicensed vehicle mode!

Soooo... I just returned from my local Toys'R'Us. Here was my experience:

Walking down the aisle, I saw they did in-fact have the Voyagers and Knight Armor Turbo Changers , as well as the voice changer helmet. I grabbed both voyager Optimus and Grimlock, went to the register, and the cashier told me she couldn't sell me them. I was very puzzled. According to Toys'R'Us, they are street dated for June 23rd, the day the movie comes out. I said to her it must be a mistake. She got the attention of the manager, and sure enough, he confirmed in the system it said all of their Last Knight merchandise was street dated for June 23rd. I brought up the post on here and other websites regarding the April 24th street date release, as well as made the argument if everything was street dated for June 23rd... why are all the toys on the shelves ready to sell? The manager agreed it was odd and looked into the matter more. Thankfully, he apologized for the confusion and gave the cashier the okay to sell me both.

It also seems like Target and Wal-Marts still haven't gotten the memo in my area yet either. The Target and Wal-Mart nearest me having nothing Last Knight related. My area being South Florida. Did the street date get pushed back? or is Kremzeek running around causing havok?https://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/posting.php?mode=reply&f=4&t=107247#

Anyone else run into a similar issue?

Thanks for sharing your experience, it is odd. It looks like an error in dates since there have been several TRU stores that show a April 24th street date (mine did) when scanning the box. What is weird to me is that it means the coding of the cash terminals is not centralized. or else everyone would be showing the same date.

Which toys did you buy? and remember to share your thoughts here when you get the chance.

Voyager Prime and Grimlock were the only two I picked up.

Yep, not a single figure at any Targets in my area (outside of one my friend is checking at for me, but there's a good chance all the Last Knight stuff is gone) or my Toys R Us. Since I'm in a different state tomorrow I figured I'd check my hometown - Target only had Bee left (called a couple hours after they opened) and Toys R Us hadn't opened their boxes yet. They offered to call me back once they did, and I asked them to if they had the voyager Optimus. They finally called after maybe 15 minutes - no Prime. Then they called back again and said they found one. The woman on the phone seemed a bit reluctant - something about hold policy - but said she'd hold onto him for me and I'll do my best to get over there in the morning. I'll take a couple pictures once I (hopefully) open him up.

Today's been a frustrating mess of checking 5 different stores with no luck, I'm glad something went right, even if awkwardly so.

I for one will not be buying a single toy from this line and personally i think everyone should boycott it, these prices are ridiculous and have no justification. Clearly this is hasbro trying to take advantage of its consumer again, it would be one thing if the quality was better but from what ive seen and heard its not. Plus if these sell i guarantee the rest of the other lines will be repriced to match effectively screwing over a lot of people.

Haha, and better yet, several are the exact same toys we have already gotten.

I am still buying them, but at a discount.

Also, boycotting a line could just send the message that TF toys dont sell which could end the line (which was almost the case back in 1993).

So at least by buying at a discount I am sending the message that I will buy your toys, but at a certain price.

My local Toys R Us only had Optimus and Grimlock. I picked up an Optimus, but I was looking forward to seeing Barricade. My area never has shit. I'm centuries ahead of everyone on the planet, but everyone around me is always 5 years behind everyone else. We still never got Titans Return Optimus or Megatron here.

I'm sure with these being widely distributed there will be plenty of sales just as there has been with RID & TR & Rescue Bots in the last year.

I will be getting the toys but not at the initial retail price while i'm waiting for the prices to drop a bit I'll be pondering some Japanese toys and some third party items i'd like to get such as Dream factory's Movie Bonecrusher leaderclass scale toy - which looks gorgeous.

But I recall how AOE Leader Optimus and Grimlock ended up being reduced to something like £16.99 & the First Edition one was out in Clearance places for under £20.00 so I can't see a reason to go running to the store - i'm sure the 1 steps will be on sale pretty quickly in the UK - heck they are on sale price already in America.

Titans Returns Dlx toys are supposed to be £19.99 - yet few stores sell them for that - I suspect the high prices won't last then they can mark them down as 30% or 50% off and be telling the truth about it.

Heck I'm mildly irked with myself for not waiting on TR Soundwave who is now £19.99 Cheaper than a Combiner Wars Skywarp is.

I think they will come down to £15.99 very quickly and then drop again to £12.50 later.

The only problem is sometimes a wave 1 item can be a swine to get cheap as the sales don't hit hard till wave 2 or 3. But usually the Amazon or ebay price has reduced by then so that compensates a lot.

If I find I have a Movie toy itch I can always buy some Wei Jiang Overscale Dinos or That Striker Prime I still don't have one of.

I'm actually much keener to get TR wave 4 anyway.

i dont see the point of griping or boycotting hasbro over the price hike. it isnt the first time this has happened. iirc deluxes used to be $7-10 in 2007 and then up to 15. so why start complaining now. it isnt gonna start a linewide price increase its just because of the movie and its "premier edition."

want cheaper prices go to walmart
they have deluxes for 15.83 and voyagers for 26. something


barricade can use his backpack as a shield but only with the circle gun thing applied
