The 3rd series of Transformers Tiny Turbo Changers is finding its way across the globe and while first being found in Asia, it has now reached North American stores. This latest series featuring small transforming figures of movie characters like Sentinel Prime, Dino and Slug have now been found in Canadian Walmarts. The sighting below comes from your fellow news editor and was found in Montreal, Quebec. These retail for $3.92 CDN and will retail for $2.99 USD once they reach the US.

Below is a list of the characters included in this series along with their codes which are much easier to see this time around due to them being written out in white rather than embossed.

Series 3 E 80051 Bumblebee
Series 3 A 80051 Ratchet
Series 3 B 80051 Slug
Series 3 C 80051 Phantom Strike Lockdown
Series 3 J 80051 Sky Rage Starscream

It has been a while since we heard of these. The Tiny Turbo Changers turned out to be a fan favourite line last year and we knew there would be more coming. The third series was found in Canada a few months ago but there was no report of these appearing at US retail. Well now there is. Scottimus Prime found these at Amoc Time Toys in Long Island New York. It’s a comic shop that is not wide range, but it might be in places like these that fans will find them, since the US is now out of one of their main toy stores. You can find images of the series 3 figures here.

They are $3.99 a piece.

Here is a guide to help you find the ones you are looking for. Each package has an embossed letter in the back to let you know this toy is in the package.

Series 3 E 80051 Bumblebee
Series 3 A 80051 Ratchet
Series 3 B 80051 Slug
Series 3 C 80051 Phantom Strike Lockdown
Series 3 J 80051 Sky Rage Starscream
Series 3 F 80051 Evac
Series 3 I 80051 Silver Knight Optimus Prime
Series 3 N 80051 Drift
Series 3 P 80051 Barricade
Series 3 D 80051 Sentinel Prime
Series 3 H 80051 Ironhide
Series 3 G 80051 Dino


Bumblebee is the same as previous releases, based off his Age of Extinction appearance. The red figures are all the exact shade of red. The blue figures are all different shades. Barricade is his Transformers (2007) version and is my personal favorite from this wave, though Ironhide is a really, really close 2nd. Speaking of which, Ironhide shares transformation with Grimlock. Drift is AOE blue versus previous red The Last Knight version. Silver Knight Optimus Prime is obviously recolor of previous version. Ratchet is an obnoxious yellowish neon green color, very different from digital product images. Phantom Strike Lockdown is the same, just translucent. Sky Rage Starscream is a red recolor of previous Starscream figures. Dino is a red recolor of Series 2 Hot Rod.

There is a series 4 coming soon and we will have pictures of that for you shortly.

Some big (yet also small) Transformers toy news slipped through everyone's fingers at SDCC 2018. The 4th series for the Tiny Turbo Changer line was fully revealed with a handful of the line on display. With Seibertron being the first place to fully reveal series 3, it only makes sense we also give you the full scoop on series 4. The big theme here is that while these are all movie designs, many seem to have a G1 deco. There are also some fully new molds which have their movie deco and some toys for the Bumblebee movie such as Bumblebee himself, Shatter and Dropkick in his two alt modes.

So without further ado, here is the entire roster:

Image

Image

So to clarify that is

Volkswagon Movie Bumblebee
Optimus Prime in G1 deco
Dropkick from Bumblebee movie in chopper mode
Swoop (movie Strafe)
Grimlock in gold (G1) deco
Soundwave in G1 deco
Dropkick from Bumblebee movie in car mode
ROTF Megatron
Dragonstorm
Scorn
Ratchet in G1 deco
Shatter from Bumblebee movie in car mode

Bumblebee, Swoop/Strafe, ROTF Megatron, Dragonstorm and Scorn are all new molds while the rest are redecos.

Below are close up images of the ones they had on display which were ROTF Megatron, Optimus, chopper Dropkick, Soundwave, Scorn, Shatter and Bumblebee. You can click on any of the images below to see much more in our SDCC 2018 Gallery for these Tiny Turbo Changers.

So is Strafe not available anymore, or has the character always supposed to be Swoop despite Hasbro saying he was a distinct person?! #-o

I guess they're retconing the name now that they have it back. Back around the time of AoE's development they lost the use of the name (though they deny it) leading to Hasbro using names like Strafe and Ptero until last year for PotP.

Guhdammit... Wave 4? I haven't had a chance at wave 2 yeeeet. :(

Amusing that this seems to be first line to have both of Dropkick's modes (as seperate toys of course)

The 4th series of Transformers Tiny Turbo Changers had been found in the US at several stores like Smith’s Marketplace and Target for $2.99. In Canada, they have been found at Walmart, today, for the same price. However, the codes have not been reported on his site yet. We have them now, which is quite helpful to those who only want a specific character. You will notice that this wave is particularly tied to the Bumblebee movie, and we now know why it includes a blue movie Soundwave.

A Autobot Ratchet
B Grimlock
C Dragonstorm
D Dropkick
E Scorn
F Bumblebee
G Chopper Mode Dropkick
H Soundwave
I Optimus Prime
J Dinobot Swoop
N Megatron
P Shatter

Here are images of the ones I picked up today in both modes with mini reviews for those curious.

Swoop

It's cool how any notion of the pteranodon dinobot being called Strafe is dropped here. While the robot mode looks stellar, the alt mode is really lacking. It does not help that they chose for the pteranodon to have a walking pose rather than a flight pose where the wings are outstretched.

Image

Megatron

I like this one quite a bit. the bot mode is tall and imposing with nice sculpting all around. The alt mode exaggerates the visible head syndrome of the character model but it does so in an adorable. It's funny how this is very vertical for a toy I always assumed as more on the wide side (like a turtle). The transformation is surprisingly more involved than the other toys and even more odd than that, its torso can split and yet that aspect never comes into play for the transformation.

Image

Dragonstorm

This is my favourite of the bunch. A lot of love went into the detail. They did not go cheap, giving us three sculpted dragon heads, that can be posed. The transformaton is cute and very effective. The two modes do look different enough from one to the next.

Volkswagen Bumblebee

Super cute in both modes! But the transformation is very lackluster. The front of the car splits into arms and you split his legs 1 milimeter.

Image

Image

Image


Scorn

I like him more than others since I do not mind the dino mode as much. I like how the dino head fits onto the back spines to make a nice continuation. The waist articulation is fun and comes into play for the transformation. It's basically the most streamlined version of the AOE deluxe.

Aw that Megatron is kinda adorable for how evil he is.

The Dragonstorm looks VERY similar to his Legion class figure just with obvious proportion changes and such.

I so wanna paint those side windows in on Bee

Still never seen Wave 2 for purchase. The Entertainer skipped to Wave 3 and most other stores still stuck on Wave 1.
