Thanks to YouTuber Ome9asupreme we have a video review of the Transformers Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce (AKA the Firestormer pack) with deluxe Slamdance, the G2 deco'd deluxe Covert Clone Sideswipe, and Battle Master Trenchfoot! This is the perfect team to counter the fearsome Phantomstrike Squadron led by Skywarp. Even if you only want one or two of these figures it's hard to argue the appeal of all those accessories and the new blast effects included for Trenchfoot. This review also shows comparisons to the previous editions of these figures. You can order the Autobot Alphastrike Counterforce on Amazon here.

Enjoy the view and share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron for the Ultimate in Transformers news!

Redwing and Refraktor playing with their new toys. The Micromasters are all a lot of fun. Cratermaker totally steals the show. An already great mold with a fantastic new color scheme. The plane guys are the next best followed by Road Police and then the Fireline/Wheelblaze truck mold. The new molds for Ricon (Whose alt mode VERY closely resembles CW Ironhide IMO) and Irontread are okay with Irontread being the better of the two due to a kinda nifty rotating cab transformation, but the articulation and aesthetics for both are hampered by both of them basically wearing their entire alt modes on their backs. Overall, a really fun set though. I am very happy I got it.

And I found Refraktor. I kinda forgot about him given how hard he has been to find at retail and the announcement of the toy-accurate three pack. My Walmart had three of him, but I only bought one. Very unfortunate for whoever comes after me.

While I was watching the Slamdance portion of the review I kept thinking...Warpath where the hell is your upper body son! :-P


But a great set indeed that I will be picking up but something else came to mind. It would have been epic if they had included some decals just like they did with LG G2 Megatron. The option for the fans to apply the SS on the sides and maybe a decal to go outside directly above the cabin....I'm just saying, 'nuff said! :VEHI:

All I’ll say is, if Wallyworld pops out Jetfire for less than I paid pulse for, I’m going to be screaming at the moon. :BANG_HEAD:


That is pretty cool. I'm surprised, and I'll be happy to say i was wrong, if it actually shows up in my area. To WM credit, one of the stores in my area did sell premium toys last year such as the Marvel Legends Infinity Gauntlet and Mjolh Mewmew Thor's Hammer. ;)

Price I would imagine to be the same $79.99, but you don't have to pay for shipping if you see it in store. I presume that Predaking didn't make it to US Retail because the transition of TRU closing, may have been to soon for Hasbro to get another distributor...I just wish there was some way of knowing if Walmart would even carry Omega Supreme :-?

Of course, this is the same walmart that goes overboard on anti theft devices for everything, and even locks up shaving products and pain relief medication. I imagine they'll have to hire a security guard for the toy section if they get these higher priced items... 8-}

Might be in luck getting Jetfire at a local Walmart here in Virginia.. I got it,I could easily buy him off of HasbroPulse, but at a local Walmart, spotted the shelf price tag for him. To me that would be more gratifying to buy him in a store. Trust me, that will only hold for awhile. In addition, at a Target, spotted the shelf price tags for the Seeker 3 pc and the Mircomaster 10 pack.. Fingers crossed!

Enjoy!

Why is everyone calling this holo-Mirage. He’s not a Hologram, he’s turning invisible. That was his special power.

On the TV show, yes. According to his biography and once-used power in issue 4 of the comic book, he creates a hologram of himself. So, whichever you want it to be, it can be.


I’m just going off the literal product description I know how Mirage’s powers work. It’s a place holder term it’s short and gets the rough point across. Say holo Mirage and people know what you’re talking about.

Maybe it just sounded better than Inviso-Mirage? I don't know.


"Holo Mirage" is the official (trademarked) name of that particular release:

Misnomer? Yes it is. :P

Don't know if it's the same elsewhere, but my local Walmart is going to perform the reset of the toy section this coming week, excited to see new stock! Keep your eyes peeled for hung up floor planners, and the date on the bottom.

Will that 3 pack be on brick-n-mortar shelves, or is it just an online exclusive? Because if the price is right, it would be quite tempting.

Let's hope it's not an Amazon PRIME exclusive. Because my free trial is ending soon and I have no intentions of renewing.

Covert Clones, ‘Holo’ characters, hate to say it but the Autobots appear to be experimenting in a seemingly disposable warrior class. I mean Weaponizers are designed to be weaponized dismembered corpses. I fear to ponder the depths the heroic Autobots will resort to for victory. Just snatch up some innocent Micromaster walking by “guess what little buddy you’re my shield and/or gun today”.

Nice draft program you’re either a living shield or a gun or a dead gun.

Dang Siege is dark!

I always pictured weaponozers as more of a super robot gimmick where they just disassemble and reassemble after use. You know, so the animators get to reuse the stock animation footage :lol: as for combining Micromasters, I view it as something that they did to themselves to aid the bigger bots, with the cons following suit.

So what's the deal with Bluestreak and Soundblaster? When do they release? I kinda missed that bit of info during the hubbub of Comic-Con.

Just wanted to share this in here before I put it under my Sightings page for Virginia. Got lucky, snagged the Micromaster 10 Pak. Of course in the photo is the Studio series Long Haul I found at the same Target. Unique thing about the Micromaster set, someone had returned it for some reason.. It had been opened and the figures cut from the inside bubble package. Took it to the customer service, they gave me 15% off the original price and they where all good, no damage.
Still no Seeker 3 Pak or Jetfire, fingers crossed!

Oh dude I love that! I totally have something like that in my head canon. I think it was just late and I was wanting to be creative and silly you know me, also maybe to give people a chuckle especially with all the bad news this last weekend.

And with that please take care everyone. Please try to keep smiling and being brave out there, and share it if you can.

Till all are one!

right now, the seeker three pack is only being sold in select stores. Check the availability online- if your store is listed among those that carry it, you're in luck. supposedly will be available for order online later this month.

They're both set to come out in the States in the first week of October. They're Walmart exclusives. The Bluestreak preorder is sold out, but Soundblaster should still be available. I thought he was only $30, but the listing below is $40.

I don't know how they're being distributed outside of the US.

That is weird, Sounblaster was $30.00 when I ordered back during SDCC.

Has anyone spotted any of these Jetfire boxes at local WalMarts? I saw an image for that at TFW but then there hasn't been too much more noise about it.
