The hunt is on! 2005 Board member Optimus Prowl has reported finding a new Transformers Prime Role Play item at his local Toys R Us. This time around, it's the Bumblebee Ion Blaster! The Ion Blaster transformers from cannon into a blaster! Weapons in disguise!

Take a look at the image after the break. Find new toys in your area? Be sure to post them in our sightings forum!

It's news to me!!

Cool, nice to see something from the TFPrime toyline..figures it would be a Bee Cannon/Blaster.

Question: Does this stuff get a "First Edition" release as well??...thought that would only apply to the figures. Interesting.

Agreed...looks new! And may represent just about the only new thing the states has seen in weeks. Grumble, grumble...US gets shafted while Canada and UK get new stuff....grumble, mumble...

Pretty cool for thous who like the role play stuff. But man.. I really hope the voyagers, entertainment pack, and cliffjumper show up in the US before the main RID line release. This drought is absolutely killing me.

I never picked this up with the first movie line, but I might this time around. It seems to fit better with the Prime line anyways. PEW PEW!

I hope this means we can get that overdue restock of LE Voyagers and wave 1.5.

WHAT? This is just a straight repackaging of the Bumblebee plasma cannon from the 2007 movie.

Toy's history kinda makes the FIRST EDITION mark on the box a big ol' WTF.

No, it's not. Not according to the box art, anyway.



vs



Black stripe on the new gun is different, blue highlights found on the 2007 Movie not found on the Prime version, the big flat-head-screw looking thing is silver on the old version, and blue on the new, among other differences.

Definitely a recolor, but not a straight-up repack.
