More new Transformers toy sightings for you now. Airachnid and the Cyberverse vehicles hit store shelves last week, and this week, it's time for the big guns! Optimus Maximus, the Cyberverse giant battlebase that transforms into a large version of Optimus Prime, has been sighted at US retail. This one was sighted in the K-Mart in Penn Station, New York City by my good friend and fellow 2005 Boards member Bulkhead! The price rang up at $36.49, although the actual RRP might be a bit nearer to $30.

Happy hunting everyone!

It's good to see stuff finally coming out, although I'm passing on this one.
Flexx Ark
Decent price. Glad I waited on this to hit stores.

While its nice to see new stuff out (I saw the Jackhammer and Driller yesterday), when it comes to Optimus Maximus, I'm the opposite of interested.
BlueAngel_Bolt
I've been waiting for this one! Not a bad price either!
UltimusPrime
I think this will be $29.96 at Walmart and $29.99 at Target. I may be wrong however and the price will be $34.96 at Walmart and $34.99 at Target.

Kmart always prices everything on the HIGH SIDE

Yeah, hopefully $30 is the average price for this guy.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'm buying this sucker on-sight.

Kinda looks like a creepy skeleton of Primal Prime.

Just wait till TRU gets it, they'll end up charging $39.97 for this thing.

It is! The toy has huge hollow areas that are kind of weird in robot mode, esp when you put cyberverse figs into em.

Cool. I might get him b/c of his size, from what Ive seen hes big! I wish I could get a pic of him next to energon Omega supreme :/

Not really interested in this or the Bee battlesuit thing. Wheeljack's Starhammer and Knockout's Energon Driller both make more sense (and I bought both the other day) but this thing and Bee's just don't to me, though I'm sure kids may like it more.
Jacer
K-mart? that's unexpected

Cool.

Today I got my first Prime Cyberverse set, The Energon Driller with Knockout.
Kaijumaster
HUZZA! I'm really looking forward to Radicons coming up with some uses for this guy!
Flexx Ark
I found him in my local Kmart as well. Nicer than some might expect. Thanks Bulkhead.

I have plenty of Cyberverse Autobots with nothing to do, so this will at least give them something to do while they sit on my shelf. No way I was going to pay $100 for it, but I can swallow the $30 for it.

Holy crap, you actually found something of value in that K-Mart? Give the man a medal!
World Prime
Funny that this is a news story today cause I actually saw him in a store today!

I won't be getting him cause of the flaws that have been pointed out in reviews, but I will say that the size was impressive in person.

Happy hunting.

i like the guy with the sword at the front, with all the guns and missiles, ratchet's like "get closer! i want to hit them with my sword!"
Railguard
Well Kmart sucks at having anything at all but I won't bother with this lot, bring on Magnus!
Composite Ghost
Stupid Kmart. They're still using price tags. It's 2012! Stop it already!

I'll Wait for the inevitable Metroplex repaint.

+1. This and the Bumblebee one.
Chaos Muffin
There's something really cool about this set but hav'nt figured it out yet.
Hopefully it'll be around for clearance.

Got mixed feelings about this guy! He looks awesome, but at the same time, he's only average. Bittersweet!

Saying THAT makes me think of D'Compose from Inhumanoids
Paradigm-Shift Prime
B-r-i-c-k!
Cliffbee
Wow, that thing is fugly.

So what's the gimmick for this? He just holds/stores smaller figures?

Pretty much. Lights and sounds with two buttons and when "transforming". I believe it is also setup to connect to other play sets.
ToddJumper
Well so much for new toys hitting the west coast first..
Most Toys R Us here in Washington state still have shelves full over overstocked and over priced dark of the moon crap. Only stores I found with slightly new stuff is Target.
