2005 Boards member deltagod, who we just reported having the first sighting of the new Cyberverse vehicle assortment, also reports finding the new assortment of Bot Shot launchers at the same Target in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. The new assortment of Bot Shot launchers features Generation One inspired Spin Shot Optimus Prime and Jump Shot Bumblebee figures.

If you get a chance to go back and scan them for the DCPI it would be greatly appreciated then we can all find these at retail easy.

Will make a run to Target later as I buy milk there a few times a week.

Added botshot set pics to top post.

Man, the Apex Armor could have been the coolest toy ever, oh well...

I don't know that I've seen IDW barcodes on the figures before, what's the cross promotion?
HeroicC300
That fool is terribly mistransformed.

Does anyone know what Smokescreen's deco homages? Closest I've got is the Battle in a Box universe Smokescreen that used the Armada Mold.

Can't wait 4 it

Looks kinda like the Alternator/Binaltech version of Smokescreen with the blue and yellow.


So is Breakdown back? Or is that "Green Zombie Dark Energon" Breakdown?

Saw these at Target in Corona aswell this morning. Was about to post pretty much the same pics lol.

Which also had the variants being the no. 7 and no. 8 cars.

That works.

A tad surprised these showed up before the other legion class figures.

Smokescreen's deco remings me of the Sideswipe redeco that came out under the movie lines.

Cyberverse Vehicles share the same DCPI as previous sets.

DOTM rally Side swipe. Colour scheme reuses aren't always linear.

Logic moment for Smokescreen's jet:

It kinda looks like the craft Magnus used in Rage of the Dinobots.
Maximal Dinobot
How much are the Bot Shots? Is that 6.49? If so, that's crazy reasonable compared to how much I've seen Target have the previous ones at. Then again 6.49 might be above retail still.

Future Generation figures are going to come with comic books I believe.

I'm in for these two sets. Making a minicon village cuz I'm a nerd.

Ok... so they took Dreadwing's carcass and made it into a weaponized jet for Smokescreen? Not only that, he goes as far as to repaint himself in that scheme!? Siiiiiick.
Driftx3
That Sky Claw sure looks a whole lot like Dreadwing. I really wonder if there's some twisted story about how this happens in season 3.

At first, I though Smokey was in his Alternator colors, but carefully scrutinizing the pic has made me wonder. Hmmmmm
Brave Magnus
While the bigass armor is great I have to admit that I prefer the ship! Simply amazing!
RDprime
Is that just repainted bumblebee armor?
HnH
yuk they look fugly as hell
LegendAntihero
Why is smokescreen mistransformed in the packaging?

Reset has been done a little while, their distribution simply didn't have stock which is why the shelves have been sitting empty.

Cool if it appears somewhere. Anyone got pic of this craft???

We know the Apex Armor appears but it looks nothing like that so it doesn't count...
InstantClazzic
while the apex armor looks cool it looks nothing like when screamer had it.
still might buy but wish voygers or above could wear it but whatever.

Nice!
Also, the fan speculation around Smokescreen's ship is the bestest!
soundwaverulls
I wonder if Dreadwing can fit in the Sky Claw since it's clearly based on his ship from Loose Cannons and in his colours.

Assuming that a Commander can fit into something like the Jackhammer, I'm sure it would be possible?
Dinobot Nuva
This Apex Armor and McDonalds Breakdown are the only Prime stuff I want this year so far. Toy Fair'll probably change that though
Flexx Ark
Snagging both of these although I was hoping to get Airachnid and regular Smokescreen first.

Why waste the apex armor on a bad remodeling with bad colors and with a dead figure that is too small in scale as is?
gokuz23
Dies anyone know the item numbers for the Botshots?
Flexx Ark
Springer and Sideswipe. Running out of names for these repaints.

In the Toys R Us in Emeryville, CA I found a pair of Deluxe Prime Hunters: Soundwave with Ravage. In the Toys R Us in Pinole, CA I found a pair of Deluxe Prime hunters Wheeljack.

I did not pick these up. They might still be there. I am very disappointed with this Prime "Kibble" line. The figures are even smaller than the Fall of Cybertron line. The packaging is also smaller, and at first I thought they were the Scout or maybe Cyberverse Series. Then I scanned them and they came up Deluxe and priced at $16. It's ridiculous.
