The holiday season is here, and that of course means it's time for retailer's holiday toy catalogues! Yes, the beloved tradition continues, as most big box stores have released (either digitally or physically) their yearly books of the top toys by now. We're taking a look at Wal-mart's today, where they have included a (albeit small) TF section!

Despite 2017 being a movie year, and a big year for TFs in general, the catalogue features just two toys: The Wal-Mart exclusive Transformers The Last Knight Flip and Change Bumblebee, and the non-transforming dancing Sqweeks figurine. The less then ideal feature follows the trend of the last few years, with less and less Transformers products featured in these retailer catalogues.
Check out the TF section of the catalogue mirrored below, and then go check out the full toy book over on Wal-Mart's website!

Those legions... I really want Hound and Dragonstorm. they, Bee, and Cogman are all that's left that I want to get. And they are so expensive online... $20 for legions? NOPE

I'd offer to pick the Legions up for you (they're all around my area... somehow), but there's a certain point at which postage costs outweigh the benefits of not paying scalper price. And that certain point is Australia :lol:

It's about the same with Canada! Will has seen them, but the shipping would just make it about the same as scalper prices. Argh.

I did buy Cogman from one of the Chinese sellers yesterday, and he shipped this morning, so we'll see what happens there. I also pre-ordered the War Hammer Bee, so at least if I don't see Bee at all, I'll get one at about the same price as he is right now online with a hammer.

Yep, the drought continues over here, too. JUST saw leader Dragonstorm two days ago, and then legion Crosshairs and Drift a week or so ago, both at TRU. Main retail is hopeless, still.

I'll be lucky to get a Sqweeks, let alone a Cogman. :-(

I actually gave up. My stores in this area never went past wave 1 save for some random sightings, and never for the deluxes or leaders. the voyager class are now the only one I've seen all the figures for since Hound and Megatron just showed up after Scorn and Nitro went in a day here. Other than that, dry. The stores also said they are not ordering any more TLK stuff since the same figures are still on the shelves for the most part. The same Bee with the same paint imperfection has been here since May 6, along with his entire wave.

So yeah, just pay the higher online prices, TLK's distribution completely failed.

Yep, it really is. He's been in the UK for, What, two months now? Three? The distribution really did fail.

It will probably not be stocked. Several Walmart transformers toys have been only available online, especially the ones geared more at collectors and not part of a mainline. This late in the game for TLK toys, it may be easier for Walmart to simply have this be an online exclusive and not bother with the trouble of distributing solid cases to stores of the same product and instead just have it all be in a warehouse.

In that case, keep an eye on those liquidator stores. You never know who'll buy up all those lovely warehouse warmers ;)

It wouldn't be unlike Walmart to be holding out for Black Friday as well. Something new and exclusive to snag the impulse buyers that day.

Wow, toys that have been on the shelves since before TLK was in theatres. Not impressed.

Several Walmart exclusive Autobots Unite toys from Transformers: The Last Knight have still not been found at Walmart, either online or in stores, in the US. These include the three sets of legion two packs as well as a two pack of one steps which include Bumblebee and Hot Rod. As has been seen in the past, movie toys unreleased this late in the game have appeared at market six stores, like Ross and TJ Maxx, where big box stores like Toysrus and Walmart dump their stock instead of putting it on their own shelves.
Well The Last Knight might be following that trend. Transformers Fan Sunsetter has found the Autobots Unite legion two pack featuring Bumblebee and Hot Rod at Ross in Montebello, California, for $5. There is no word on the other two packs which feature Optimus Prime and Ravenspar and Megatron and Berserker. There are also no images for this sighting yet so if you do find these at Ross, please send us an image or post it on the message boards.

And as with all sightings, to share the news with other fans, you can use our sightings section and sightings forum.

Below are images of the figures possibly appearing at Ross to give you an idea or what to be on the lookout for.

That's just speculation, Will, right? Neither Wal-Mart or Hasbro has come out and said that's the case. I mean, it's probable, but there's still a chance we might see him in the black Friday or christmas restocks.

Not speculation, I am just stating the current reality. The person asked where delue hot rod was and the only place to get him was online at walmart. We dont need an official confirmation and it probably wasnt the original plan, but thats whats happening. The CW Boxsets were never mentioned to be online only for the US, but thats what they ended up being in reality.

But that's not inherently true. I've personally seen the G2 Menasor and Superion box sets at TRU.

The TLK line isn't over until it's over, so there's still a chance we'll see him (at least somewhere in the US). Like I said, it's probable what you're saying is true, and I agree that the distribution of this line was one of the biggest missteps in hasbro's recent history.

Yes! The G2 Superion shelfwarmed in my TRU's clearance isle for months, before finally disappearing. I didn't realise seeing one was so rare.

In fact I even made mention of it over in the TR thread back when it first disappeared.

Anyways, I was mainly referring to Walmart for the CW sets, and comparing them to this hot rod. They end up being practically online exclusive even if its not intended (although I do remember talking to o.supreme about how the bo sets werent being found at retail, but whatever). And to be honest, I dont see how it makes a difference him being on the shelves or not. Arent fans happy that they can select the toy they want directly online instead of hoping it shows up at retail? No need to fight off the scalpers or fear that a kid's parents buys it before you?

I find you guys super lucky, no Hot Rod product will ever get to Canada. For some reason, Walmart doesnt send all its movie exclusives to Canada. Has been the case since I started collecting.
