    Here's an odd one: The Entertainer have somehow ended up with cases of TLK Autobots Unite Deluxe Hot Rod, despite it previously being released as an Asda exclusive.

    It perhaps wouldn't be so surprising from a discount/closeout chain, but The Entertainer is a "proper" toy shop.

    Just wanting to add to the HK sightings that you've updated the first post with - I also found all of the reissues (Minibots, Hotrod, Starscream, Devastator) at three different stores (with Hasbro HK distributor stickers on them, so they weren't direct imports).
    And out now in Australia is the second wave of small Authentics... which I think only has Grimlock as a new figure for that wave (the four from wave 1 were also there, but I don't know all four were re-released, as they could have been leftover stock from wave 1).
    I will get pics tomorrow (my phone was flat).

    UPC barcode for Authentics Grimlock would be nice, too!

    This is actually in stock on Amazon.co.uk now, but can't be found doing a normal search. Some of their TF listings are a mess! They've got their own stock listed under the SS deluxe 'assortment' listings, one with the actual assortment EAN and one with the Crowbar EAN. They must have stock that just doesn't shift, and no wonder.

    The second wave Grimlock for the small Authentics line.... with barcode as requested.
    [​IMG]

    It pretty much transforms like Gen1 Grimlock... but has no dino arms, and the dino head needs to be attached when first removing from packaging.

    I don't have the large Authentics yet so can't do a comparison with the bigger Grimlock.

    Also.... Predaking is finally out in Australia, but only at one of the smaller retailers.

    The new $5 mini (cyberverse?) Bumblebee is quite fun and even features a “Berwalk” (Bumwalk?) mode! ;)

    Got Shatter at a Target in Cincinnati, OH. It didn’t scan at the register, so the cashier just rung it up for $9.99.

    Start a new thread in News & Rumors. While I appreciate your contribution, this thread is more about documenting stuff, reporting should go on the front page.

    By the way, I just found that same Shatter in Germany today.

    Picked up Cyberverse Ultra Shockwave from TRU Canada today. C$29.99. Did not see Shadow Striker.

    Wave 2 Scouts are out at various WMs here too.

    Is Shadow Striker's altmode is more of a muscle car, a exotic car, or a mixture of both?

    Exotic. Based on the real-life Lamborghini used for Lockdown in Age Of Extinction.

    Well, from what we know, Bumblebee is still a muscle car for Cyberverse. In Cyberverse, Hot Rod appears to be a futuristic muscle car than a futuristic exotic car in G1. What muscle car is Cyberverse Hot Rod based on? Wheeljack in Cyberverse finally has a muscle car mode, and it's based on the current Mustang. Sad to say, that he's only in one-step only. Will he ever get a Warrior class version in the near future? Will Shadow Striker finally get a Warrior version as well? In RID, Soundwave appeared as a futuristic armored truck. In Cyberverse, Soundwave, while stayed true to his G1 self in his design, is now a futuristic SUV rather than a tape player. What kind of SUV was Soundwave based on?

    I found this Bumblebee movie Energon Igniters legends class Camaro Bumblebee at my local Walmart. I haven't seen him anywhere else so thought I would post it here for Nevermore to add to the lot of UPC numbers. I took pics of him below.
