    I found this at Target in the Dever Metro Area of Colorado.

    And I know the BotBots 1 and 5 packs were found already, but were the 8 packs?

    And they had the Bumblebee Movie "Mission View"(I think that's the name) figures too.

    The 8-packs have been hitting Walmarts. Picked one up a few days ago.

    They had all of those at my Target today as well. They also had Siege voyagers and leaders (looks like yours did too). It was nice to go on a hunt and see new releases for once. I kinda want that Bumblebee helmet but I'm gonna wait until it gets cheaper. I don't like it at $70.

    Saw that helmet yesterday as I was picking up some Siege figures. Don't follow these things enough to know if they are new, old, or somewhere in-between. Box looked pretty decent, but I figure if I passed on the old Optimus and Bumblebee helmets at the thriftstore over and over for $5 or less, I couldn't justify this shiny nice one.

    Why is a helmet being labeled as "studio series" instead of random Bumblebee movie merchandise ? Is thats a scary indication of things to come ?

    Becuase that’s what they do with these high end collectibles and that’s what this is. This is no different than the Infinity Gauntlet and Mijnor being labeled under Marvel legends or Darth Vader’s helmet under Star Wars black series.

    That’s what Studio Series is. The Transformers equivalent of Black Series and Legends

    And, by extension, Siege. It's not scary at all, just new and different...which some of y'all tend to have issues with.

    I wonder how good the speaker quality is. For the right price I'd pick it up.

    Im not sure I understand your response. Studio Series and Black Series are action figure lines. This is not an action figure. Its a cosplay mask for kids. It has nothing to do with action figures. Its the equivilant of making a life sized light saber for kids and calling it "Black Series".

    You know that the Black Series does exactly that, right?

    No I was not aware. I only collect Transformers. At a quick glance, ive only seen 2 sizes of action figures labeled Black Series. I was under the assumption all the kiddie cosplay junk and stuffed porgs and wookies were a regular line on par with one step changers or shampoo bottle transformers.

    Kiddie stuff in my toyline is the worst.

    Either way everything you’ve said is flawed from the get-go.
