    This was only revealed at SDCC just weeks ago, and it has now been found at Australian ToysRUs stores under their exclusive "Clash of the Transformers" banner, before anywhere else in the world (I think).
    If so, I think this is our first look at the packaging.
    It has the two Warrior Class toys of Bumblebee & Steeljaw (looks like they could be the same as their regular release), packed with a single Stasis Pod (packed in two parts to look like two), and an assortment of weapons.

    The price is AU$80 (about US$60).

    One may have to buy a lot of these to account for the Alchemor amount of stasis cells. :lol

    You are right, so I've edited my post.

    I've also noted that there is apparently only one stasis pod, but packed in two halves to look like it has two.

    Does anyone else think the stasis pod looks like the cryo chamber from Halo?

    Seeing as I don't own Steeljaw or Bumblebee from the RID line, I think this set suits me just fine. :D

    This looks like it is way overpriced.

    The warehouse that services most of the south central us has this, and the Starscream wave of warriors. Should be arriving in stores soon.

    It's not like it's that easy... Hmmm, maybe it they bundle them with the figures... as bonus weapons? Perhaps in clear plastic.

    Huh...I saw those two days ago when I went to TRU to get some Titan Masters. I had no idea this was a thing.

    Still don't really want them though.

    I really only want the stasis pod, or at the very least they could have changed the deco for Bumblebee and Steeljaw.

    hey fandom, let's all agree to be super cool and not take the stasis pods and then return the set? i know the people doing that are a minority, but please don't be a dick over children's toys

    The set is a bit tempting as I don't have either figure, so getting them both, the stasis, and the ton of weapons is a deal if the price is right. (Which I doubt it will be.)

    But I guess I'll wait and see what it's US price is and if TRU puts it on sale. Patience and time will see.

    i was hoping for $10, but $40 is fair. $30 for two deluxes and $10 plus weapons and a bigass stasis pod is worth it.

    is there anyway to give the open box away if everything except the stasis pod is there? i don't think toys for tots would take it
