Amid the SDCC 2012 news we also have news of some new toy sightings. The Transformers Prime Weaponizers - Optimus Prime and Bumblebee - have now arrived at US retail. Running for $29.99 they are a return of the Ultra size class in all but name. These were found at a K-Mart in Kenosha, WI.

Also sighted at the same K-Mart were a couple of new Transformers Kre-O sets, namely the Battle for Energon two-pack featuring Optimus Prime and Megatron and the Decepticon Ambush set featuring Kreon Cliffjumper and a trio of Vehicon Kreons.

Keep up to speed on your latest local toy finds using our Transformers Sightings section.

$29.99 seems like a good price for Weaponizers

Guess that pretty much confirms taht Weaponizers are more like Ultras than anything really.

I am still not sure on these weaponizers. I saw a review a while ago of the Optimus and I just hated how the whole figure was built around the gimick in a way it seems to hurt the figure. With these coming out hopefully I can find a couple more reviews and get a better look at it from different angles. The Bumblebee, not sure of at all just for the sheer fact it is another Bumblebee.

aah, that rare time of year when K-Mart gets new stuff first...

I'll bet this stuff will be up with Target's reset on 7/29, but since we don't know the DCPI theyre all in the back waiting for the reset

Already ordered my Weaponizer Prime on Amazon. Free shipping and no tax.
Powersa
Good price from K-mart.

Just a slight update

Opened up Bumblebee and....his backpack is horrible.

Well, it was bad to begin with, but it's held to the main body by a tiny little slot and tab set up that doesn't hold very well. So it falls off all the time.

Not a toy I'd recommend to many, and I may end up returning him. But Optimus looks like it'd be a major improvement over this one.

Actually $30 is probably the highest anyone should pay for them.

Smart Move.

Most of my local K-marts still have figures from the first and only case they ordered, I guess not too many people shop there. It seems like they only restock maybe twice during the year until Christmas season

I'd care about Prime so much more if there was a Megatron.....
Starzie
My Kmart had these too. Didnt get pictures though.
Exodus
As much as I like Prime, these will be a pass for me.

Can't wait for that rare time months from now when it's all on clearance during a 50% off sale

And I agree with Daimao, all my local K-Marts order figures maybe four times a year and then just sit on them for months. They clearance them, they run a sale on the clearance and clean out everything and start the cycle again.
World Prime
As usual, Optimus looks cool and Bee looks like shit. I can deal with movieverse Bee, but Prime Bee doesn't interest me in the slightest.

i found the two smaller kreo sets at universal studios for $20 but if you desprately want them they are there if you live in socal aand have a season pass or are willing to pay. i think they were also in the giftshop outside also they had a battleship set in the termanator store

Just got my Prime this afternoon at a Kmart in Tampa, FL (Dale Mabry just north of 275).
They also had Weaponizer Bumblebee and both new 3-packs of Bot-shots.

Going to buy the Prime on sight! Then stare at the Bumblebee for a few weeks until I cave on him too.
Jack Darby
Ugh I'll probably end up buying both of these even if Bumblebee's back pack does fall off all the time.

Ditto on Optimus, but I'll give the Bee to my nephew.
UltimusPrime
I found the New Kre-O and Weaponizers today.

Picked up the Weaponizers.
Grimlockimus
I'll say this though, Weaponizer Prime is actually very detailed and show accurate. I love the arms they gave him as well as the lining on the inside of the chest. Vehicle mode is lacking due to the hollow legs, but still worth the $30 for one.

Bumblebee is starting to warm up on me a bit, but he needs some serious paint detailing on his torso, it's way too yellow and missing some black stripes.

Anyone find the Kre-O at a TRU locally? They are having B1G1 half off until July 28th.

I'm hoping Reprolabels can do up a set to fix the stripes and other details. A little bit of color to break up all the yellow would go a long way for this figure

No such problems with the one I have.
Dah Padre
Grabed a set today at my local KMart. Not sure what I want to do with them though. I haven't opened them so I might return them.
Scypris
Wisconsin getting something first? That's a big surprise!
