Anyone aware of a release date for these two here in the states? Give or take...?
Yeah I saw. I ask because I was willing to drop the 40-50 bucks to import him now....but not if it means finding him at TRU next week down the block from my house. lol
I swear it was confirmed that stinger was going to be a store exclusive.
I'd guess next month for Lockdown at least. We'll probably here more about Stinger at SDCC but I'm expecting him to just be a repaint of that new Bumblebee mold.
Yeah, with Lockdown out now in Hasbro Asia markets, it'll probably show up in the US in the next few weeks.
Deluxe Stinger has yet to be officially confirmed, but odds are it'll be announced as a Walmart exclusive at SDCC in a few weeks.
Dear god I hope not.
That would be doing a tremendous disservice to the sexiness of a Pagani. :/
I wouldn't lose hope yet. That toy's shellformery enough that the car parts could be remolded easily enough. Unlike a certain other line where people say is that simple though it's not...
The wave with Lockdown (wave 2.5) is estimated to arrive at July according to BBTS, I preordered that wave almost two months ago to avoid having any difficulty finding him.
Nothing clear on Stinger, I just hope that if this store exclusive thing is true they don't back down at the last moment like what they did with Leadfoot: "Oh don't worry he will come out as a part of a Target exclusive set".
I would imagine it to be soon, but I have to throw this in too
I can't justify an expensive purchase to get something 2 weeks earlier when we know it will surely clog shelves.
The last 3 movies toylines remained on shelves for forever after their release. Hell You could buy the previous movie toys leading right into the next film.
Even if it's another month, why would you pay three times the cost of the toy just to get it earlier?
yeah.. i never understood people spending so much more on a movie figure.. especially in this instance when, in a few weeks, it'll be on the shelf at walmart for $9.97.
I agree . It's ludicrous.
Well mostly because I'm impatient and I have enough disposable income where I can.....so often times when I want something...I just buy it. Lol
lockdown is wave 2 (he's coming) and stinger is rumored to be wave 3.
People got burned with Leadfoot, Soundwave, and Wheeljack. They were available at retail in Asia for a long while but people were willing to wait for the US release.
And now they go for $200-$250 on the market
The one step changer of Stinger is supposedly a Walmart exclusive. With that sighting at a Target despite the Walmart sticker on it kind of ends up being confusing though. I think one of the games also had Stinger as an exclusive as well. Not a thing on any deluxe yet though.
I haven't seen any pictures yet of Deluxe Lockdown, but if he's molded in the same craptacular metallic chocolate BROWN that the 1-step figure is, I'd gladly pay import prices if that version's molded in the correct dark grey.
Honestly, that brown is an affront to the Aventador.
I live in the near the crappiest Walmart and they are stocked up on Power Battlers, One Step's, Dino Riders and Flip and Changers and only 2 Wave 1 deluxes, No Voyagers and a Leader Grimlock. I already own all the Wave 1 deluxes and the Grimlock. I guess it's good luck for me to find a Deluxe Stinger when it comes out, But I will get Lockdown at TRU.
