Thanks to a notification from fellow Seibertronian -Kanrabat- we now have a third video review from the Transformers Authentics toyline, after the ones for Optimus Prime and Grimlock covered here - and the newcomer is none other than The Chosen One, Lord Starscream himself!

Check out the clip embedded below, let us know what you think of this smaller scale (about Legends class) figure's jet and robot mode, and the simpler transformation of the line in general, as the characters take on the 'evergreen' designs meant to call back to a general 'iconic' aesthetic, all in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

I think there has been some confusion.

That is not the new warrior starscream, this is:

That video is instead showing Authentics 4" Starscream, which Chefatron had reviewed back in December. That toy has been available for a while now across the globe, just not in Canada.

Found the 7" one on the retail, decided to get grimlock. Gotta say, i like him more than i expected. The plastic actually doesn't feel cheap in hand. If anything, they feel sturdier than POTP plastic. He is also pretty stable, considering the huge gap on his foot.

That Grimlock desperately need some paint. I'm pretty sure any painters/customizers will have fun painting this guy. I mean, it's like those "paint it yourself" statues you find at the dollar store or hobby shop. That Grimlock fully painted is sure to look pretty boss.

agreed. And with a 10.99$ price, he is a perfect canvas.

We had previously seen a retool of the RID giant Bumblebee figure redone as what we assumed was Cyberverse Bumblebee. However, now that we have our first listing for the figure, on the Kohl's website, we see that this is instead part of the Authentics line, which is a line that also uses those evergreen G1 designs. None of those words appear on the packaging or listing, which simply calls this toy Transformers Super Bumblebee Figure. It is listed for $49.99 USD but certain discounts may apply, and it can be ordered now. This figure is also appearing in Kohl's stores.

Thanks to our own site owner, Seibertron, we now have a new deal! If you wanted to pick a couple of the Authentics 5 inch/Bravo figures, now is your chance to do so! This deal was found in a Walgreens at Des Plaines, Illinois, where you can pick up two Transformers Authentics 5 inch "Bravo" figures each for $6.99, and grab a 3rd extra Authentics figure for free!

These Authentics figure used to be available online, or in General Dollar-esque stores, and there are also 7 inch "Alpha" assortments.

So if you wanted to pick up these simple, inexpensive figures, head out to your local Walgreens, and grab two for the price of one!

To be clear: here, when they say "Buy 2, Get 1 Free", it means if you buy 2 at full price, you get a third free. Says so on the tag too :) So it's not 2 for the price of 1, but 3 for the price of 2.

Oh boy! If my Junkion Hunt takes me to a Walgreens that actually has 3 different Authenics in stock, I...still probably won't bother. I mean, my first Starscream was the Classic Pretender, whom this Screamer really reminds me of, and if I had three, I could dye up a Transformer Legends Thundercracker and Skywarp, and the trio could do a memorial fly-over of my nearest dying Sears (see, the 4 Classic Pretenders were released without their shells as a Kmart exclusive subgroup called "Transformer Legends"), and--

Yeah, still no. If I break my rule for no Seeker collecting outside of the Classic Starscream mold this year, it'll be for Cyberverse deluxes.

Good deal though.

That's just Walgreens being Walgreens. If you want anything that is on a sale price at that store you need to have their rewards card. It free to sign up and you can do it at the register, so don't let that deter you if you want in on this deal. Note, Wreck Gar is at regular price, so no card needed unless he goes on sale at some point.

I'm actually curious about Starscream and Megatron but it doesn't matter because I haven't seen any of these anywhere.

Walgreen's Reward card is nice. The points rack up quickly. I have a nice balance I've been sitting on, waiting to use it on Wreck-Gar. Should bring him down to below regular price.

At about $4.60 a pop, these little guys are more tempting. They'ed make fun little desk fiddlers for work. I like Megs and Starscream, but who would the 3rd be? Prime or Bee? :-?

Thanks! I'll edit it shortly... or well it's already edited apparently!

I'll be honest, neither. I suggest Grimlock.

Grimlock is not part of that size class assortment (in the US right now), you only have 4 choices for the buy 2 get 1 free so your third is either BB or Optimus.

Get two Starscreams and repaint one into someone else.

Getting 2 Starscreams might be your best bet. Walgreens distribution is weird. I've been to 12 different Walgreens over the past few days keeping an eye out for Wreck Gar, but also looking at these. I have yet to see more than 2 different characters in the same store. 2 Primes with 2 Bees, 2 Starscreams with 2 Megs. Never more than 4 total and never 2 different ones.

So the whole Buy 2, get 1 free is pretty useless unless you wanted more than 1 of the same figure.
