Sorry if old news, saw these at Walmart this afternoon
Oh shit aleardy
City and state? Thanks!!!
Chesapeake, VA. Battlefield Blvd for any locals interested
Were the new Ultra's there? Especially Clobber
More baby garbage to clutter up the pegs. This crap should be over in the preschool section with Rescue Bots.
I'm pretty sure that walmart only carries warriors 1 steps and ultimates since thats the only thing that sold in 2018
Every Walmart is different.
Really a shame they couldn't have given the Hot Rod elbow joints. I had purchased the first version, and my kids hated it because of the lack of mobility.
They loved Soundwave & Prowl though.
At least Hot Rod has a deluxe figure coming out soon.
Wave 2 of the Cyberverse deluxes, we saw them on the back of the wave 1 deluxes.
When are they coming out? Are they boxed alone? On pegs?
What is going on with the branding? Why are there two different line titles for the figures?
I've seen 3 so far: regular, adventures, battle for cybertron
Also Power of The Spark (Season 2 early toys), so that makes 4.
Mines was a Christmas gift and also lacks mobility. Toys like should not be on shelves. Mines was Bumble Bee.
"Power of the Spark" was the subline imprint for 2019.
For 2020, there are two alternating subline imprint titles for the same packaging design, some of which are used for different toys from the same waves of the same price points: "Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures" and "Battle for Cybertron". My original theory was that Hasbro's marketing department made a last-minute decision to change the subline imprint title for 2020, but not until some of the packaging had already been printed. However, the overal prevalence of both versions makes this seem more and more unlikely.
Here's the current overview of which toys have which branding:
"Battle for Cybertron":
1-Step Changers: Autobot Whirl
Scout Class: Grimlock (rebranded re-release), Ramjet, Dead End
Warrior Class: Soundwave (rebranded re-release)
Ultra Class: Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Clobber
Ultimate Class: Optimus Prime, Shockwave
Quintesson Invasion 3-pack (also branded as "Cybertronian Villains")
"Bumblebee: Cyberverse Adventures":
1-Step Changers: Bumblebee (rebranded re-release), Wheeljack (rebranded re-release), Bludgeon
Scout Class: Optimus Prime (rebranded re-release)
Warrior Class: Bumblebee (Cybertronian Mode), Megatron (Cybertronian Mode), Stealth Force Hot Rod
Deluxe Class: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Shockwave
So its currently a tie with each branding being featured on 11 products' packaging.
