News Post: Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Official Hasbro Press Release
Nice... And the countdown begins... lol
Did they mess up and switch the prices of Deluxe and Voyagers? Cuz I can't imagine paying 19.99 for a Deluxe even with the mechtech.
Hey, Kreomus Prime actually looks nice.
So, in May I will be picking up Powerglide
and Shockwave. I can't wait.
Yeah, but you get Voyagers for $11.99, so it's not all bad.
Do we have wave/assortment breakdowns yet? I'm guessing we'll probably get the first few waves at once.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure they should be reversed.
I hope the prices are otherwise accurate. I'm dying to get my hands on the leader Sentinel Prime and it'd be so much nicer to pay around $40 as opposed to $45. I can almost afford that.
Glad to see UltimateOptimus are not the first wave, gave me more time to save up some money
I was under the impression that BB and Sentinel Prime will be the first two leaders and Ironhide will be later?
Or are they releasing three leaders first time round?
I just want to see the new trailer tbh..
There was a rumoured Shockwave Leader toy - heck knows what happened there.
Let the count down begin
The new building blocks really frustrate me. They're very obvious LEGO clones, and considering that back eight years or so ago, Hasbro sued LEGO to get them to stop selling "action figures" (premium minifigures with display stands), as it was their exclusive domain in the license.
Hasbro, I know LOTS of employees at LOTS of stores that might sell your building blocks. This is, IMO, overstepping a line that you yourself drew, and if I can't get your product blocked from shelves in my area (which is admittedly highly unlikely) I will get the employees and managers on board to mark your product up to ridiculous amounts, and to actively discourage customers from buying them, as I will be doing myself.
So far I'm only getting Sentinel Prime, Crankcase and Skyhammer on launch day, assuming they're all available. Ironhide won't be, he was in a nowhere near finished state at toy fair and three months isn't enough time to complete the process, get him into production, produce the enormous numbers required and ship them.
Considering Lego itself is a knockoff, I'm willing to let it slide.
And that good sir is blasphemy.
They think that kre-o delivers terrific innovation?? HAHAHA! I like how they've realised what a complete rip-off clone of Lego they are and have had to put an indentation into one of the pegs to avoid being sued.
So they don't even transform?! You can build a robot and then take it to pieces and use the same pieces to build a vehicle?? I (as i'm sure many others here can relate to) was building transforming lego transformers when I was 6, this is a bad joke.
Excited by some of the toys not all however... Ultimate Optimus Prime is going to be a wallet buster you can be sure of that.... its gonna hurt my finances...
How are people like Peaugh picking up early releases of Voyager Megatron and Ironhide.. My only guess is he has ties to Hasbro yes?
World premiere is June 29th, not July 1st.
I have so many problems with all that I hope I can remember them all.
I didn't read the parts about the masks and robo power ; whatever; or any of the other stuff more childish than Cyberverse.
Mechtech in genral.
Mechtech obviously translates into oversized and then you can combine two already oversized weapens, its rediculous.
Why have the prices in AUS not gone down when the OZy $ is so close to the US $?
BTW, why call it a world premier, when it actually is first shown in countries like Egypt, then Australia, then the Yankies get it. That's not what I'd call World premier.
The rest are problems with the actual toys.
His arms are too big;
What's up with lights and sounds and speeches? Why do they make the big and (meant to be) cool toys so childish?
Again:the lights and sounds... why?
Why is so far Meg and Shock not in it but Bee and Hide are.
Voyager and Deluxe
The quality of these figures are quite bad compared to the ROTF toys.
Most figures in deluxe look quite chunky and while the ROTF toys look like they have parts that all get rearranged to look cool in Bot mode. The DOTM toys look a bit more chunky and bad quallity.
Also Shockwave looks like his ribs are just there for looks and do not look properly intergrated into his Robot mode.
And where is the Deluxe Leadfoot? Why is there a lack of weapons on the Roadbuster vehicle mode?
Cyberverse looks okay apart from a bad quality OP.
Stealthforce(I didn't read that part.)
I think this line is a wast of money and should be built into the others because I would not buy a toy that didn't have a robot mode just to give them a third mode.
