    Beast Hunters and Bot Shots Stunticons spotted at US retail

    In possible new News, amidst some holiday shopping this morning I found some new figures at a Toys R Us in Southern California:

    - Beast Hunters Wave 1 deluxe:
    - Bumblebee, Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Lazerback
    - $15.99 ea. (I only purchased Wheeljack and Lazerback)
    - Wheeljack: This tough-as-nails outer space adventurer is newly equipped with enhanced beast-hunting gear!
    - Laserback: Chaotic PREDACON rebel whose only goal is to scour Earth clean of the AUTOBOTS!

    Also!
    - Bot Shots 5-Packs
    - Stunticons (Decepticon Dragstrip, Brake-Neck, Motorbreath, Dead End, Breakdown - The rebellious STUNTICONS team serves MEGATRON by causing chaos wherever they can!)
    - Autobot Polar Assault Team (Mirage, Jetfire, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Bumbblehee - the AUTOBOT POLAR ASSAULT Team ventures into endless tundra too cold for most robots to survive!)
    - $21.99 ea.

    Beast Hunters Lazerback Review here
    Beast Hunters Wheeljack Review here

    Good luck hunting and happy holidays!

    EDIT: Attached additional pics of the Stunticons! (and the polar Autobots)
    EDIT: Okay, I couldn't resist opening up the packages. And surprise!- major changes to the instruction sheets (first since ??), with a large, monochromatic spread, character shot, and expanded story (!). Images and possible SPOILERS for Lazerback's origin and bio attached in images. Also added a couple early shots - enjoy!
    EDIT: Reviews are up and linked!

    Could we get a good shot of that autobot botshots pack?

    and how the hell did Hasbro manage to lose two of the stunticon's names in one year?

    "Motorbreath" is kinda catchy.

    "Hey Motorbreath!" "What's up, Motorbreath?" "Motorbreath, get off that fucking tractor."

    Hehehehehe

    Botcon got away with calling him "The Motor Master"

    Wildrider, it seems, is lost... I thought they usually had two years on a name.

    Stunticons Bot Shots?

    I seriously cannot muster a single damn to give about the Beast Hunter toys.

    Huh, wasn't expecting the Beast Hunters stuff to hit quite so early. Not planning on getting any of the Deluxes myself, but maybe this means the Voyagers will be out soon.

    It's not what he does, it's a physical description - his neck is composed of brakes.
