Thanks to user daimchoc via Dogimus Prime, we have a look at Toys "R" Us listings for the Transformers: Age of Extinction toyline. We've seen the product list before, and generally knew the street date, but confirmation from the TRU system seems to give us a concrete street date of 5/17/2014. Start saving, and stay tuned for product reveals leading up to and at Toy Fair 2014!

Weren't RotF toys released on a Friday or Saturday? I don't remember DotM but I semi-remember hitting a Walmart on a weekend and seeing all the brand new RotF stuff out, with one or two retailers breaking the release date and stocking stuff a bit earlier than that.

I'm guessing Wave 1 of Deluxes will be Bumblebee, Crosshairs, Drift and Lockdown, Voyagers will is a mystery, but I don't want Wave 1 of Leaders to be only Optimus, I want Optimus AND Grimlock.

Happy hunting to those who are interested... I still need to see the deluxe waves before I commit.
ComfyDeathshot
Cant wait.
moreprimeland
Love the warnings ....don't put that stock out b4 the official street date.

Okay....usually my stores are about a month behind, we'll see how this goes.
Jazz 4
Mv4 generations......this can go either way...both of which will hurt generations.
Good way generations will turn into a line of only bayformers. Leaving anything else out
Bad way ittl do so bad hasblow will ditch the line.
Heres to hoping we see armada starscream, rhinox,whirl, and doubledealer at retail and not getting cancelled.
SG Roadbuster
May 17th: the Death of the Thrilling 30 Generations line.
It was great while it lasted. But it seems Great Cosmos, the Destroyer of Lines hath visited his wrath upon a beloved toyline once more. The sacrifices were rejected, and our world made darker for it.....
jestermon
Think I'm going to try to hold my cash, not that the toys or the movie suck, just tend to get carried away with movie toys I don't really like, that new factor.
Ramdomaccess
2 months After my birthday
Stygian360
The date I'm more interested in? Feb 16th, which is the date Toy Fair shows me whether or not these figures are going to be worth tracking down in May.
jestermon
Still wondering if toy stores will ever stock past wave 1 of whatever we will get from the movies anyways.

I'm hoping they come out during the second or third wave. I will be pretty upset if they dont since HA and Leaders are all I collect. I will only have Grimlock to look forward to, provided he doesn't suck.
lockdownhunter4
Where are the Cyberverse? Is this a complete listing or just a part ?
Starscream Gaga
Can somebody please clear something up for me? Thrilling 30 and Movie Generations will be on the shelves concurrently, won't they? The Generations line hasn't been cancelled and replaced by the Movie line, has it?

If the absolutely amazing line-up Thrilling 30 has coming up (Tailgate, Brainstorm, Arcee, Roadbuster...) gets cut short for the movie line, I'll be pretty devastated.

Generations will carry the new Movie toy if what the lisitings say are to be belivied (as they stated the AOE figs are Generationss stuff)

Didn't know the toy thing was such a big deal to TF fans. Does this website have an where you guys post pics of your collections? Would like to see.

I hope stores don't over order on titan figures...
Mr. Chaos
That sound you hear is my wallet sobbing at the thought of me buying the entire Dinobot set when it comes out.

I hope we get human alliance Lockdown

I bet you a Sparker is one of those on wheel toys where you slip a rip stick in and then pull it to make it speed and go.

I'd love Human Alliance, But I highly doubt they are doing them again.

yeah.. the human alliance figures were probably my favorite part of rotf and dotm.

sure, some had some bad kibble.. but bumblebee was pretty good, barricade was fantastic (though i wish he had two hands), jazz was just about perfect. though i didn't really like the characters skids and mudflap turned out pretty nice, leadfoot would've been better had he been accurate, roadbuster was awesome, soudnwave (though i don't have it) probably would've been my favorite. ..

i'm still FUMING over human alliance soundwave never getting released. i cannot believe that shit. i REALLY wanted the damn thing too.
FanimusMaximus
And so, we prepare for the hunt.
PrimulArchangel
I really hope something good is shown at Toy Fair, everything I seen so far is a SH*T show of crap to me. Hasbro didn't get anything from me with DOTM and so far they wont be getting anything for this round either. Ill just continue to work on my G1 collection if they are all crap..
Transmetal
Hopefully I'll finally have some decent toys to buy that aren't third party because the supposed "thrilling 30" line wasn't so thrilling anyways.

I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst with this line...
Aeronnz
My birthday's on the 29th! Great timing again Hasbro.

I'm almost hoping for the worst. It's been a long, slow slide down in quality for a while with most things Hasbro. I might just be ready to stop. If they blow this line it will be easy.

The base designs for BB and Drift are already questionable. Prime is a step down as well, but I still actually LIKE that design. We'll see.

I think they meant the Movie toys taking over the line and being the ONLY things in the line, but that probably won't happen.
RedAlert Rescue
The vast majority (maybe all) of the Generations slots for the 1st Waves seem movie related - I suspect they just decided to keep the white/red boxes for a while and not have to re-brand the toys again as soon as the Movie dies off.

The advantage of doing it that way is they can go back to doing non-movie stuff as soon as they are done - or release characters like HFTD Lockdown that can work as either/or.

They can also slot in the odd over looked Movie Quadrillogy character into the assortment with out it causing to much disruption.

I suspect however in practical terms what will happen is the Movie 4 toyline will dominate the whole brand until the end of 2014 and then slowly vanish into 2015 Generations will taper out or go on the back burner and be partly replaced by the 2015 cartoon toyline.

However since it's Hasbro and they hardly ever manage to get a toyline and a cartoon out at the same time. I suspect Generation in some form will run well into 2015 as they drag their heels on the 2015 Cartoon toyline - but if what they make is a very collector unfriendly line or something set in the Movie universe then some one is going to be rendered unsatisfied with it.

I don't Suppose Hasbro will be giving us Movie villains in leader size they seem loath to do that - stating villain leaders don't sell - I suspect that has more to do with 2007 & 2009 Movie Leader Megatrons being horrible toys than it does them being Decepticons though.
