    I read on Toynova that there is going to be a DotM subline called Stealth Force Mini Changers. Apparently they come in two-packs.

    Here's the link

    Does anyone know what these are? I don't know if there's a thread for this already - the search function is down. Anyway, they sound really neat. I never bought any of the regular stealth force toys, but if these are smaller versions I could really dig them. :p 

    Edit: Okaaaay. Just found some pictures of these and... well, they look like crap. :sly:  Forget I asked.

    I have no idea. Never saw them in stores, but they look like crap anyway, so maybe that's just as well.

    They were released during the official DOTM toy launch last year in our country. I see them popping up on Ebay US from time to time.

    I was able to get these from the toy launch and a local retailer:

    The only place I ever saw them was ebay. I don't think they were ever available anywhere in the US, and it seems like they only had a very limited release overseas too.

    They were never released in the U.S., but did show up in Canada and Europe, as well as Asia (confirmed for the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore - I think - likely released in China and Hong Kong, as well). As far as I know, only the first series were found on store shelves.

    Bumblebee (vehicle) / Sentinel Prime (robot)
    Crumplezone (vehicle) / Bumblebee (robot)
    Sideswipe (vehicle) / Sentinel Prime (robot)
    Sideswipe (vehicle) / Starscream (robot)
    Optimus Prime (vehicle) / Starscream (robot)

    The following is the second wave and is likely canceled.

    Mirage (vehicle) / Megatron (robot)
    Sentinel Prime (vehicle) / Bumblebee (robot)
    Oil Pan (vehicle) / Bulkhead (robot)
    Optimus Prime (vehicle) / Megatron (robot)

    As far as I know they were never released in the US. They were available in Canada and overseas. It's really frustrating how certain territories get TF releases while others don't.

    Why does Hasbro keep making it Harder and HARDER for us to actually find products of theirs that we want to buy!?!?!? I would love to buy a bunch of their products, but many of them I can never find!

    And they wonder why sales are down. Idoits.

    We still don't have TF Prime RID, as well as some DOTM stuff, Rescue Bots, and Bot Shots. These have been released in the US and other Asian countries. :(

    Never seen Sentinel Prime (vehicle) Oilpan or Mirage or Bulkhead PVC in person but the others I got on sale last year - they are nothing worth getting excited about. just a low quality toy car with opening doors packed with an even lower quality PVC. thought for some odd reasons they came with multiple minor colour variations on both the body colour as you can see in the Bumblebee/Sentinel image higher up the page.

    The idea had potential but the implementation was terrible.

    Do we have images of the second wave?

    And damn it sucks they were never released here. I was looking forward to Crumplezone, and almost hoping he'd get a Deluxe with Crowbar and Hatchet.

    They were shelfwarmers here in the UK. It was like they tried to do a new version of Robot Heroes but forgot the fun designs for the robot figures. The car ones were okay but still pretty poor.

    I guess if I was smart I would have checked.

    I'm kind of disappointed now.
