Trick or treat?
So this means we should start seeing copies of these toys showing up by Asian reviewers (seemingly having fallen off a truck straight from the factory) probably around late summer then. Nice...
Awesome! I can't wait to pick up a couple figures!
Yay. Hopefully the VW Bumblebee is in that first assortment. That's the one I'll bee looking for.
They're all going to be vintage '70s-'80s cars, that's my crap wheelhouse, man.
Looking forward to another shitty toyline clogging shelves.
So Starscream is in the Bumblebee movie?
If so, I think wave 4 of Studio Series Voyagers only mentioned ROTF Starscream because there is a BB movie Starscream included.
Mabey but there would be another Voyager figure in the upcoming listings besides the tatted version. I highly doubt there would be two Starscream' s in the same wave regardless of class size. And we don't have confirmation on said class size I the back of my mind a potential f-18 jet would warrant a deluxe and not Voyager based on size alone but that's just me.
That would make sense.
What am I thinking, I want Destroyer to be someone else.
Well lets see what the red muscle car turns out to be, if hes ugly as shiznit well....
I hope toys actually show up here for me. TLK toys were basically non existent where I was. Had to order online (hate it).
This is where TRU will be missed as you know because some doppy Parent complained about 4 year old little timmy not being able to Transform some Generation toy so simple - Boomer the Dog could do it.
That all places like Tesco, Asda and the like will stock is : The same kind of tat that plagued the UK when Age of Extinction was around - and why Titans Returns (one of the best lines they'd made in most of decade) got pretty much ignored in favour of (frankly) Land fill like those Allspark Figures.

Bee Vision Mask
On one level I don't object at all to toys aimed young I like Rescue Bots and I liked the Movie GoBots "Battlechargers" things.
But you just know some toy buyer is looking at some report that says they get fewer complaints about Power Attackers than they did Deluxes - so that along with a cheaper wholesale price means - you can bet the mainline will be thin in the ground in the UK - so far I have seen ZERO POTP toys in an actual store. Heck I've barely seen anything Marvel for years that wasn't tat (Like some Role Play Thor hammer).
Hasbro may as well give up if all they are going to sell is stuff that if you paid 50pence for it at a Carboot sale you'd feel mildly ripped off.
Really? Nothing better to do than insult someone? How mature.
I think I may need to clarify this one.
Bee Vision Mask is an Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality helmet and two gloves.
Stinger Blaster is a separate role play weapon with lights and sounds.
However, the Mask will detect the Blaster as a compatible item. If you shoot it while wearing the Bee Vision Helmet, you'll see the "blasts" in addition to the weapons lights and sounds.
It's kind of like the Playstation VR and that plastic "gun"
Must depend where you live. My local ASDA and Sansburys always had CW and TR figures other than leader class (though they've not had POTP in yet) and the TLK figures they had were the Premier Editions and the one steps. The Allspark tech figures turned up at my local TRU and Entertainer but I've never seen them anywhere else.
Hasbro did say that they were splitting the lines into kid-friendly and collector aimed lines precisely because of complaints of figures being too difficult for kids (along with line qide gimmicks such as mech tech making the figures compromised on accuracy for the adult fans). Wheyher or not we like it, enough children have found them difficult enough or too easy to break for Hasbro to think it was a fair indication of what the majority of non-fan buyers were experiencing.
Just mainly poking my head in to see if there's any word or buzz on "Evolutions" figures in this line like a T30, TR, or Classics Bumblebee redeco. Or even a PotP Windcharger with a G1 head as some kind of "classic" Bumblebee.
Or possible Titan Master gimmick carryover like PotP had.
I'm so damaged from previous transformers they gotta let it die
