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

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?

I was thinking the same thing. I was hoping to pick up that big Power Charge Bee until I saw it's going for $50 - I was hoping for $25-30 tops. To be fair it's a bit bigger than I expected, but I'll just wait fir the Masterpiece instead.

Then I stand by what I said since I know they're showing up at Canadian Walmarts. It's stupid for Hasbro to impose street dates on us in the US-only while the rest of the world is weeks ahead of us.

If you're asking everyone, I'd get Studio VW Bee and Shadow Raider, legion VW Bee, Barricade and maybe Optimus. If you're asking just Emerje, then my bad

There's a couple Igniters I want. I've already pre-ordered Speed Series Optimus off HTS so I could qualify for a coupon, but if I could have found him locally I might already have him before I knew about the coupon.

I am having trouble understanding how finding him locally would have been the better outcome then :-?

Easy, I would have had it sooner and I would have used the coupon on something else I wanted and would have liked a discount on. But it really isn't about what I want from this line, it's about Hasbro's constant use of meaningless street dates, not just here, but with Studio Series and every other place they randomly choose to impose them. It wouldn't be an issue if they were world wide, but it's just us, it's frustrating.

Oops, good point. In that case I'll swap out Shadow Raider for that Takara Legendary Optimus Prime (preordered him on HLJ) and add Masterpiece Bumblebee who I have on preorder from BBTS. That Optimus looks beautiful (finally, properly placed chrome on him!), my only disappointment being he doesn't scale with Studio Series. I have my Evasion Primes for that though

Is it possible that Legendary prime was made to scale to power charge bee?

Power Charge Bee is massive for a Bee though.
Makes Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock look small. :P
