Another sighting, and unlike the others this one has seemingly come out of nowhere. TFW2005 member Yaujta has found something completely new at his local K-Mart: New(ish) DOTM Robot Heroes Puzzle Packs. While the Robot Heroes are simply just earlier Movie Robot Heroes molds repainted, the toys come with puzzles are single-packed instead of in pairs. In this wave are Megatron (with his Movie 1 Design), Optimus Prime, and Sideswipe.

Do you have any sightings to share with your fellow collectors? Well come on over to the Sightings Forum, and share the love.

The Megatron is from the first movie line.

Actually it's a movie 1 figure. He has the flail slamming the fround.

I'm shocked there wasn't a Bumblebee one.

Those boxes are nice. If they're in the UK at some point, I'll get them on sale.

This thread is not only exciting but massively disappointing at the same time.

The fact that they're willing to go back to the well with Robot Heroes is interesting...but yeah I would've loved to see new molds. Oh well.

Same. How badass would it have been to get the dreads and sentinel as robot heroes!!!!

Well, if I see it i'll be putting the Prime one in my collection, but i'm not going to go out of my way to find them.

Randy!
Yaujta
I saw them in the puzzle aisle and thought for a brief second that they were new molds. Sad that I was wrong, but seeing Robot Heroes again was really nice.
airfox
What the ...

My first thought on reading the news was: "new Robot Heroes?!"

Second: "How come the toys weren't leaked?!"

Which got me thinking: "must be repaints."

So from to in three thoughts.

Any robot heroes is better than no robot heroes at all.

Not to get anyone's hopes up, but I talked to the Playskool guys at Botcon about robot heroes and they said that they were on the list of things to possibly revisit. They just need some media support behind it and I think it'll be much more successful than the first run.

Makes me wonder if they might still release that Robot Heroes Victory Saber and Dezarus set.
Protoman
Why do I want these.......... the call of the Robot Heroes........
jestermon
Man, I saw this and thought they would be new ones I know someone had their rescue bot photos tagged as Robot Heroes somewhere else as well.
NormanB
Are they repaints or repacks?

Also, they reused the shittiest Megatron RH ever. That mold sucks balls, and has been issued twice already.
friendship pony
yeah PA!!!!
bny888
What about Bee?
flywheels
I saw these today @ a Kmart in NC.
caitlindevi
Wow what a waste of packaging!
G1Prowl
Who knows? Maybe this'll be the doorway for the unreleased and barely released molds to make it to retail.
bny888
The should've just released the ROTF Attacktix figures.
SGTsoundwave
so, do they transform or are they just little statues?
airfox
Neither.

They don't transform, but they're articulated at the shoulders so not statues either.

Pfffff..

I was thinking of selling my movie Robot Heroes, are they worth much?

that's disappointing. i don't think i'll even be giving these guys a second look. well, unless they have a soundwave one. but that's very doubtful if they don't have a bumblebee one.

The only ones that might fetch a decent price are the two pairs released outside of the US only (Ricochet/Predaking, Tigatron/Inferno) or the unreleased ones if anyone actually got a hold of some samples (I think some Prowl/Laserbeaks made their way into some collectors hands). Beyond that, no most are still fairly cheap and easy to get a hold of. The Slag/Sharkticon and Perceptor/Bombshell(I think?) two packs might qualify as somewhat uncommon.

No movieverse Soundwave as ever made for Robot Heroes, only G1. If a movieverse Soundwave was released, using the RotF or DotM designs, it'd require a new mold.
Yaujta
I have the Predaking pack. That alone makes me disappointed the line didn't continue.

When I saw that the only ones used for these packs were Prime, Megatron and Sideswipe, I kept thinking that much better molds could have been reused. Prime with blades, RotF claw-arm Megatron and either Bumblebee or Ironhide.
NCStarscream
Sorry to bump this, but someone started another thread about them and said there was a Starscream one. Has anyone else seen one? I only ever saw Optimus, Megatron, and Sideswipe.
Jlogano20
that was me that said that ill try to get a pic if its still their
bny888
Still wondering why there's no Bumblebee.

There's tons of BB ones. Robot Heroes have been around since before the first movie if I recall correctly. They're adorable and one of the better collectibles Hasbro's done with TFs.

But yeah, odd there's no Bumblebee in this line.
barrelks
This reminds me, I forgot to pick up the Sideswipe one when they were running the $5 off $5.99 purchase. May have to get some Facebook coupons and go get that pack.
