We've got a new Transformers toy sighting for you! Newly sighted at US retail are the GDO / China Import series Voyagers Megatron, Powerdive and Protectobot Hot Spot. These new releases - who feature new head molds compared to their previous releases Bludgeon, Highbrow and Inferno respectively - were found putting the class in Classics at the Chandler AZ Toys R Us!

Please show up online!!!

SON OF A BITCH. It finally got to the point where I could order GDOs and Combaticons online. Now there is more to hunt for!
Sideswipe1954
Wow cheaper than their Prime Voyagers, and these are exclusives, LOL. What is the SKU and do you have a picture of Powerdive?
Soundwinder
Yes... SKU?
MrSneis
Sorry no pics of Powerdive but if you Google you will find some. As a figure Powerdive looks great in alt mode but bot mode looks spotty IMO.

On top is Megatron and Hot Spot is below. These are stickers covering the original UPC's.

Sideswipe1954
Thanks, UPCs work just as well.

sweet. there goes the "TRU isn't getting GDO voyagers" conspiracy theories.
definitely gotta get hotspot and g2 megs.
FatalT 71
I'd go in for Hot Spot.

If you asked me if I would ever, ever get a remold of Bludgeon with a new head as G2 Megs I would've laughed and punched you in the face.

Yet I find myself increasingly tempted. It helps that the head is utterly, utterly perfect, both in sculpt and style. I'm a big G2 fan, and G2 Megatron is one of my favorites, and I can't believe how tempted I am by this.

I'd probably explain it away that after G2 Megs killed Bludgeon he upgraded his body using his technology or something. I dunno.

Want Powerdive so hard, though. I might get Megs if I see him, but Powerdive is bought on sight for me.
UltimusPrime
Cool now I can get a Hotspot I won't feel guilty about opening.

This is good news; now the big US market's getting its own supply, maybe - just maybe - the after market prices will ease off a bit for the Asia Exclusives that are, y'know, in Asia. AdmittedlyI haven't been watching any of these online and when I went to the nearest Kmart last week I swear the Transformers shelf was missing in action, haha.

I might pick up two or three of these, starting with Hot Spot either in November or at a pinch the new year; basically any time I won't have been paying for Masterpices.
justamaze
Great news. Really want Hotspot, maybe Megatron.
Paladine
If I call TRU, can they check local availability via the UPC?
Mixmastah
Price?

Hopefully will be here on the Thursday truck.
Devastator77
I'll take Hot Spot!
havanowoncheese
I loved my g2 megs as a kid and still do to this day so the Megatron is a must for me. Its great redeco of a great mold. Cant wait!
Shark Jumper
Why do stores only stock one case?
Angelwave
Dat Hot Spot...................
luckybot

Alucard77

Marketing gimmick, makes you want them more.

Yeah makes you want them so bad, you buy it off a scalper instead...

Good to know these are being spotted out in the wild. I might get Megatron...maybe. Though I'm tempted to wait and see what the inevitable Beast Hunters Megatron looks like. I appreciate the G2 homage, and the new head, but the mold still doesn't quite have that Megatron feel to him.
Blitz.
so hope these show up in the UK one day.
Jason Blue Boost
Need Hotspot to complete my GDO collection. Now if they would only release the leaders at TRU.
Imposer
Wow. Saw the Deluxe ones at ToysRus today. Along with the Year of the Dragon DOTM Optimus Prime.
MarkMilton
these, i can give or take.... Hotspot is a definite "maybe" if i were to see him. but i don't think i'll actively hunt for these.
BlueAngel_Bolt
I want Powerdive the most out of all of these. Hot Spot and Megs will be passively hunted by me.

... good, you're far away from me.

EDIT: ... because I feel exactly the same and don't want competition.
Autovolt 127
Excellent. Hot Zone will be mine.
Protoman
OH MAN THAT HOT SPOT! Finally! Hope it shows up in Canada at some point...
Scantron
The only one I want is Hot Spot, but it looks like that'll be the most difficult of the three to find. Hopefully I'll get lucky and catch them if/when they go up on TRU.com.
Starfire22
$22.99?

Huh.
mondo
I have the G2 Megatron and I like it much more than this repaint. The head is good but doesn't fit well on a Movie toy. They should have use the head on a new mold and the body should have had a G2ish Movieverse head.

I do want the Powerdive. Can someone please tell me when it goes online, thanks.

Are you sure it wasn't a regular DOTM prime? That is only available overseas and amazon.com
Necro Prime
The only Asian exclusive that have shown up in my neck of the woods are the legion class, and frankly I don't give a hoot about them. Still waiting and looking in often......
fake
so have the Voyagers shown up anywhere other than the OP's store? I went to the TRU near me, and they had no clue when these would show up. They did have 2 Legion figures.
Timesynch
The hunt begins again. Too bad the TRUs here in San Antonio suck ass as far as getting in new stuff goes, not to mention the scalpers that suck each place dry.
Omegax80
I saw the SKU posted, how about their six-digit stock number?
Dinobot Snarl
wasted oportunity to do a great G2 Megs, that mold is good for Bludgeon and I would have bought him had that not felt the need to make his skull face soooo UGLY

It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was RobotKingdom trying to get people to get them off of him so he wasn't stuck with tons of overstock like he was with the rest of the GDOs. If I remember, he was also adamant that the Scouts weren't coming either.

This is good news, but if the last couple waves are any indication, then my TRU will only get one case. Shit...
