    Via Transformers Peru, we have a very unexpected item that surfaced at popular Entertaintment and game center Coney Park Peru. Promoted and sponsored by Hasbro Peru, Coney Park centers are offering 6 figurines of classic G1 Characters: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Megatron, Soundwave and Starscream. My Little Pony is also part of the campaign.

    They come in small bags with evergreen art of each character, so you can choose your favorite bot. The figures are about 5 cm tall, and made of painted vinyl. Finishing is not the best, but Grimlock is the best painted so far. While you can choose the character and they technically cost $1.5, you can only buy them by recharging the game card at any Coney Park center with $9, so you get $7.5 of credit to play and you receive the figurine.

    Curiously, they come in boxes of 50 items and labeled as "Figurine Transformers Bumblebee". They will be available in 100 units per store and only in December.

    A very unexpected item, considering that we were expecting something related to Cyberverse or even RID. We haven't seen G1 merchandise here in decades.

    Fans here are crazy about them, but 9 bucks for a figurine is not so very encouraging, but when you go to these game centers 10 bugks is the least you expend.

    Oiga vecino! It's strange, so far they are exclusive items of that game center. No store or mall is selling them so far.

    They look pretty fun, but we already have the Heroes of Cybertron toyline that was essentially the same.

    Well, we\'ve got a few that are on par with their animation models, like Bee in his robot mode and Grimlock in his dino mode.

    To add more info. They figurines were retired from all centers immediately after the Bumblebee premiere here in December, they announced they would be back in January but they available in less chains and characters like Optimus or Grimlock were really hard to find. To date, they are not available in any store.

    For some strange reason, all these figurines seemed to have disappeared. They were supposed to be available for 2 months, but they only lasted 3 weeks. They were taken out of all game centers the day the Bumblebee movie premiered here. Then, they said the figurines will be available in January this year, but they never were seen again. The hardest to find were Optimus and Grmlock, and even in the local aftermarket, they are not available anymore.
