    Battle In Space Box Set Hot Rod VS Cyclonus - Transformers News

    Somewhere I seen this was going to be in the Reveal the Shield packaging. And being a two pack it hit me that this could be the Walmart Black Friday special? In '07 they released deluxes, so it is a posibility. Or Is this going to be a Target exclusive that the three pack with Galvatron was supposed to be? Or is it just going to be available everyhere?

    I heard it was going to be available everywhere, which is why BBTS has it for such a low price

    i'm hoping it will be like the ROTF bumblebee/soundwave two pack, with galvatron being a mail-away exclusive

    hasbro said they wanted to do it again

    First Look at Battle in Space Rodimus and Cyclonus In-Package

    The in package images from seibertron.com. I cant wait for this sets release. The redecos for both figures look absolutely amazing!

    And i am glad that they are not including Galv. While i love how the universe Galvatron looks the figure is one i dont feel the need to own another of.

    Those are re-post of the images I posted here, along with the Bio/story. Based on the info I have it's not looking like a store exclusive.

    1) It isn't listed as an exclusive with Hasbro
    2) BBTS has it for pre-order (which would be a no-no on store exclusive)


    -=EDIT=-

    Anyone with access to TRU, Target, Wal-Mart systems may want to enter this barcode and see what they get?

    Definitely going to be a wide release item. TFSource, BBTS, and even the Official Transformers Fan Club have the item for just over $20.

    Think of it like the Animated Jetfire/Jetstorm, Battle Damaged Animated Optimus/Megatron, and NEST Soundwave/Bumblebee sets. Which were every where for $20.

    No, pretty sure it is NOT a black Friday item since pretty much every retail outlet on the internet has the thing up for preorder.

    It is a mass retail offering and will probably languish in stores until it gets clearanced next spring to make room for Transformers 3 stuff.

    I meant like it will be release @ retail during black Friday...it might shelfwarm,but I doubt it..

    Hasbro is slick, I sure they saw people bidding on sg,classics rodimus with crazy prices, plus fpj protectors suit...hasbro like "let's get some of this $"...also hasbro heard how much US hated galvatron, they excluded him....I would be surprise if kup a mail in figure...

    That Galvatron kicks ass. I think a lot of the hate comes from people that doesn't own one.

    I dont see hasbro doing a black friday item that will se a mass release. That seems more like something that they would reserve for an exclusive. Plus if it gets a mass retail release what would be the point of it being released on black friday. Imo that does not make much sense from a marketing stand point because people dont rush out on black friday for something they can avoid the crowd for in less it is just ridiculously cheap. And i mean so cheap that the retailer is losing money on the item. I could always be wrong but also considering the preorders this will not be a black friday item.

    Almost all of the hate I've heard comes from people that -do- own it, claiming that the thing is a loose, kibbly mess that falls apart all the time.


    Only some people hate it on looks alone and won't buy it. People like me :D

    i own galvy simply because its galvatron with articulation for my generations figs... its nowhere near a crown jewel if you so much as try to pose his legs for a pic tghe fall to pieces... but if u can find the one pose he looks good in it does fine on the shelf with cyclonus and botcon scourge
