When we think of Walmart Transformers exclusives, the first thing that comes to mind is toys but today we have something different for you. Fellow Seibertronian and (CW) Optimus Prime voice actor JON3.0 found some exclusive Opimus Prime gloves at Walmart in the US for $4.97 USD. These are not Optimus themes gloves but rather blue gloves to emulate Optimus' hand colour in the G1 cartoon.

In Canada, the same week, yours truly found an Exclusive Bumblebee costume for the Bumblebee movie. This is different than the previously reported costume since this one has a hard plastic cover for the chest section rather than being all fabric. It retails for $34.98 CAD.

With the Transformers Bumblebee movie toyline now hitting shelves across the world, Hasbro has updated their YouTube channel with several videos advertising the toyline.

The big one to note here is this one featuring Transformers Bumblebee movie actor Jorge Lenderborg Jr playing around with a DJ Bumblebee toy showing off its features.



We also have several videos featuring the Nitro subline, though these have been posted up by Hasbro Brazil



Individual toy videos:



















Finally, we have a new video for Power Charge Bumblebee.



Have you had any luck in getting these? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.

I wonder if an adult sized version would be ridiculously priced like the last one I saw.

Primal Prime has provided the web with great comparison images between both versions of Transformers Leader Soundwave. The latest release which is exclusive to Target for the Bumblebee movie line (and now thanks to the latest trailers, we know why this is happening) and the previous release is from the Titans Return line.

Edited: He does come with his shoulder cannon and rifle, both in a plastic bag in the right side of the package. They are both the same molds as the Titans return version, with the rifle painted silver and the shoulder cannon painted with new red paint details on the missile tips.

We also see how different the deco is with the Bumblebee movie release having darker paint apps. The biggest difference is in the alt mode, of coure, where we see retooled speakers. There is also a lot fo added deco for details like the channel tuning. The Titan Master component also has deco differences.

Which do you preffer? Let us know!

Well, I can be honest when I say that I do not think I need that Soundwave at all.

Does this cost as much as the previous release? Because, if so, there is no excuse for the weapons to be omitted. That knowledge has just shifted this from a "maybe" to a definite "no". I imagine I will not be alone in this sentiment.

Yes, it is 50$ USD. I dont udnerstand it either since I thought it was all part of the same master mold (on the same sprues). I dont get the reason for this omission.

Quick note here.. the Bumblebee movie Soundwave DOES come with the weapons. The shoulder cannon and a silver rifle are included in a plastic bag in the right side of the package. They are both the same molds as the Titans return version, but the rifle is silver and the shoulder cannon has new red paint detail on the missile tips.

Are we sure this wasn't just Primal Prime's bad luck him not coming with weapons? He had them at SDCC and that was a finished product at the time.

The Bumblebee Movie Soundwave DOES come with his gun and shoulder cannon. It is in a little bag that is attached to the inside of the packaging on the right side of the box. Is it possible that your's did not come with one or maybe it got thrown away?

There is another. Does anyone have Movie the Best Soundwave? Apparently, he comes with a missile for his non included gun. I never saw that missile and learnt of this way after throwing away the box.

Weird, never heard of that. Source on that info? All the MB stuff displayed accessories pretty prominently so I'm skeptical. I can believe it, just surprised if it's true. Mine would also be in the garbage if so.

My source is TF Wiki

Released as part of TakaraTomy's Transformers Movie The Best toyline to conclude the 10th anniversary of the live-action film series, this Soundwave is an extensive redeco of his Human Alliance toy, without the Laserbeak and the Mr. Gould figure. Bizarrely, the missile from Laserbeak is included—with nothing to fire it from, it is best used as a club to beat unsuspecting Autobots... provided that you manage to fit it in Soundwave's incredibly wide grip.

https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Soundwave_(ROTF)#Movie_The_Best

EDIT: I checked several video reviews and none mention it. In fact, most mention the fact that he comes devoid of any accessoies. So either all of us have that missile in the garbage, or TFWiki is lieing through their teeth.

Eh, probably just wrong, mistakes happen :) I'm sure if we crowdsourced our database, approvals of bad info would happen sometimes as well.

The (volunteering) editors do like to jump the accessory from time to time I've noticed. The TR Soundwave redeco missing his seems to be another...

I just checked the TakaraTomy Mall listing for the accessory count: no missile mentioned, just the figure and instructions.

I am just glad I am not missing an accessory. I personally do not care much for accessories (especially useless ones as this would have been the case) but I like knowing that the toy I bought has kept its value even if I never sell it. And losing an accessory would definitely hurt that.

I do, but I don't recall missile, I'll have to check the box.

Another thing of note about the new Bee Soundwave, if it hasn't been mentioned. His visor is iridescent yellow and quite striking. I spotted some at Target on Monday and gave em a good eyeballing.

All that dark grey on the arms and thighs is quite ugly though.

Some really cool remolding and the blue is much closer to the G1 toy where the TR is almost purple in comparison. I'm good with my TR version though.

It is the opening week of the Bee! Thanks to multiple sightings from Seibertronians including TFA1024 and yours truly, we have news that pretty much every single wave 1 Bumblebee Movie figure has made its way to retail! A majority of the sightings so far have been at Target, but Walmarts have been showing up on the sightings radar as well. Among the sightings are the highly anticipated Power Charge Bumblebee (AKA the giant one) and the entirety of the Energon Ignitors classes, including the Speed, Power, Power Plus, and Nitro series figures.

With all the figures headed out to shelves, head on over to your local stores and start hunting those sweet new Movie figures!

Only downside was i couldn't buy any because i have them preordered from HTS. I hope people are abke to find toys at their local stores. Thanks again for the news credit!

The Bumblebee movie toyline truly is in full swing. Not only are all mainline toys accounted for but now we have news that even the peripheral toys are also being spotted. We have several sightings of the Bumblebee movie Cassette Pack, which is $30 at Target and includes Howlback, Titans Return Frenzy, Buzzsaw and One Step Bumblebee. This is good news for fans who only wanted to pay for the cassettes and not Bumblebee since the $30 price point truly renders the Bumblebee toy as a bonus.

The images below come from Heymickey on Twitter, who also took an image of leader class Soundwave with all his cassettes. These cassettes are Target exclusives and speaking of which, we also have a sighting of the Music FX Titan Bumblebee figure which is also a Target exclusive. Fc203 posted a video on youtube showing his finding along with the different sound effects this Bumblebee does.

Another peripheral toy sighting would be the Tiny Turbo Titans Series 4 at Meijer by xRotorstormx. This series is a tie in to the Bumblebee movie with Shatter, Dropkick and Volkswagen Bumblebee found in the wave. You can see every character included here.

And speaking of Bumblebee movie tie ins, series 3 of Studio Series which includes the Volkswagen Bumblebee figure is available on amazon.com for almost everyone to purchase.

Snagged Bumblebee. I thought my Walmarts and Targets were crap before...now that Toys R Us is gone. All my local brick and mortars (Central Illinois) are looking more like our non-existent crappy K-Marts. I have (2) Targets and (6) Walmarts in a 25 mile radius...all of their toy sections are going downhill.

That's like the identical situation where I live, literally the same number of targets and Walmart in that radius, just a lot further north then yours.

Some of that will be seasonal. The toy departments of those stores are usually a wasteland between Easter and the build up to Christmas. Fortunately the build up to Christmas should be right around the corner. Particularly with Target, they have all moved a bunch of things to clearance aisles, and I would expect the toy departments to be re-organized in the next month and start getting filled in.

Walmart is Walmart, I'm not sure they run with any rhyme or reason there.

I agree with you...the other problem is that Walmart does not have very many dedicated to associates. I see different people stocking all the time and they have no idea what I;m talking about when looking for new product. Both my Targets were once really really good. I do not know who is running things now, but clearance is a mess (sloppy thrown together endcaps). The shelf space in Action figures is mostly old Star Wars that will never sell. They cram all the Transformers into a very small section and half the time items are on wrong peg anyway. Target is really ticking me of more than Walmart.

This may be a bit off topic but,
Wasn't there a KBB MP Voyager scaled SW teased a while back? And didn't megasteel also tease a voyager sized SW? I haven't heard any news on that. Just putting this out here cause I really want a nice SW Voyager sized SW figure and the BB movie doesn't seem to be delivering even tho the SW design in the BB trailer was perfect. Seems like a missed opportunity on Hasbro's part by reissuing a figure we already got 2 years ago

First Blaster, and then a Soundwave with all new Boombox parts, and now this one has even different boombox parts, so all 3 are entirely unique

Guess it's fun to complain about every single details.
Those who already have their TR Soundwave may not be interested, but many like me either skipped or never saw it in store. So it's like a second chance. Personally, I found the original TR version to be too bland. But this special one is just right. So if I see it in store, I may pounce.

For some unfathomable reason - other than money, of course - the new line of toys from the Transformers Bumblebee Movie in Italy will make its debut in participating stores of the Original Marines chain, on September 29 and October 6th - according to the official Facebook page! The lines to be shown off include the Energon Igniters and the Bumblebee mask which we have seen previously, so no big news here, other than the bizarre association with the clothing brand rather than a toy shop.

The official site for the promotion is here, and the 'Diventa un Transformers' event is part of OriginalDays, which will include demos and sketches on the days with the apparel and products tied in to the movie. Because reasons.

Common sense seems to have not just left the building it went running at full speed.

Are you sure? It looks just like the soundwave mold but altered... And also wasn't the Blaster mold just a retool of soundwave anyway?

First Blaster, and then a Soundwave with all new Boombox parts, and now this one has even different boombox parts, so all 3 are entirely unique

That's what I thought, so I don't get the criticism.
Guess it's fun to complain about every single details.
Those who already have their TR Soundwave may not be interested, but many like me either skipped or never saw it in store. So it's like a second chance. Personally, I found the original TR version to be too bland. But this special one is just right. So if I see it in store, I may pounce.
If I didn't already have the TR Soundwave I'd be all over the new Beedeco SW. Color's are better, the molding is cooler. I am not a fan of the dark grey on the arms and legs though. Just looks off.

It's a fantastic mold that looks the part and a lot of fun to play with in base mode. I'd recommend owning at least one flavor of the mold. I will say after seeing Soundwave in the new trailer, I want "that" Soundwave in addition to all the other Soundwaves. I'm in the can't have enough Soundwaves camp, BTW ;)^

I'm also hunting that Cassettebot pack because I "need" a blue Frumble. :-x
