I skipped on TR Soundwave and Co. But if I see both Soundwave and the cassettes sets, I'll make an impulse purchase. :-?

Easy pass on all those. If I wanted those Titans Return toys I would have got them shortly after the first time round when I saw them cheap in places like B&M and TK Maxx.

From the Transformers Bumblebee Movie toyline, and the simpler toys we are aware of in the Energon Igniters line, we finally have confirmation of one of the coded products we had seen previously, confirming Blitzwing's name yet again as part of the Cybertronian cast in the upcoming movie.

The Walmart listing found here replaces the Hornet 2 name with Blitzwing, and means that the full release schedule is as follows:

Blue Light 1: Dropkick (helicopter mode)
Blue Light 2: Dropkick (car mode)
Red Light 1: Shatter (jet mode)
Red Light 2: Shatter (car mode)
Hornet 2: Blitzwing

Check it out, and let us know if you'll be picking one up once we have actual images of the toy!

Will this finally settle the debate about Blitzwing being in the film? I'm guessing it will be a toy of his plane form :-?

On the subject of the igniters series, I spotted the first wave of the Nitro series at Sainsbury's, Ripley in the U.K, retailing for 21 Pounds.

Are people still debating that? I thought they made it pretty clear that at SDCC that it was Blitzwing we saw in the trailer, not Starscream. And I'm a little unclear, but I was under the impression that Blitzwing isn't a triplechanger in this movie since the other two are. Maybe that wasn't confirmed?

not confirmed. And look at those listings Va'al posted. There is a a 1 or 2 posted near the names (possibly) referencing which alt mode. And Blitzwing has one as well, so he might also be a triple changer (or at least have 2 versions of a toy in his name).

PrimeVsPrime again with another review, this time is Energon Igniters Bumblebee (I posted the videos here of Optimus Prime and Barricade earlier up on the thread).

It seems the entire world is getting the Bumblebee movie toys at the same time. Now it is Australia and the UK's turn. Nearly every class was found in Australia while the UK only has the bigger toys so far, but other classes are sure to follow. The australian sightings were provided by Griffin from Ozformers (who breaks down all specific sightings and credits here), while the UK sighints were given to us by ou own TFmonkeybiz. If you find toys in your country, be sure to inform the fans near you in our Sightings forum.

Griffin wrote:Found first at Target stores are the first wave of Bumblebee Movie toys, in line with the global release this week in several other countries.

This includes the four sizes of Energon Igniters toys (Speed, Power, Power Plus, Nitro), the Titan Changers, and Power Charge Bumblebee.
(photos below from Polursine were edited and re-hosted on this site)
This is in addition to the Studio Series Deluxe VW Bumblebee toy that was also being found this week at Target stores, probably held back until the Movie Toyline was released this week.

The Transformers: Bumblebee toys are hitting retail across the globe almost simultaneously. Of course, the big takeaway is that this line gimmick based, as it is titled Energon Igniters across the board. As we already know, each size class can interact with the energon igniter (allspark looking motor thing) and they do so with varyig effect. Below you will see a quick look through 3 of the classes:

- Speed class: these are legion class toys and TgaSANZMag reviews all the different transformations found in wave 1
- Power Plus class: Griffin from Ozformers gives us a quick look at the gimmick for these tos which are as big as one step ransformers toys
- Nitro class: these are deluxe sized and those reviews come from PrimeVsPrime

Enjoy!

Kroger has a history of breaking street dates since they're a regional grocery store with a small selection of toys. Have they been found and purchased at Walmart or Target yet?
