    It's not really news per se, but I thought this was interesting, when I was messing around with the walmart app

    How’d you find these? I typed in the same title in my app and still couldn’t find it. Do you have the sku?

    No, no skus. I typed into Google walmart studio series 86, and it popped up under grimlock. I think it's a place holder for when they get the skus.

    I just learned this week that using the app to save figures to my favorites, allows me to check if they are in stock at my local store instantly. I was able to pick up 3 figures this way 2 days ago.

    You mean adding them to my List? Me too. Thanks for the trick, very clever of you to search Google instead of Walmart’s lame search engine.

    Sorry I haven't been keeping up...don't suppose there's been any word on a Perceptor or Blitzwing?

    I downloaded the Walmart app and I can't get this to work. I'm wondering if it's because I'm in Canada. The store websites and apps are never quite as good in Canada for some reason.

    Thanks. I'd really like a good Blitzwing to go with Siege/Earthrise Astrotrain but I'll actually be mad if they don't make a Percerptor. Jazz got a fig and Perceptor had ten times the role in the movie as Jazz.
    I'm thinking now is the time to make Blaster and his crew as well.

    Yeah Perceptor is coming i am sure, likely 2022/2023 as a voyager. I have no insider info, just going based on the attempted scaling with WFC and that he has huge role in movie and season 2. Patience.....a virtue every collector has a minimal amount of lol. As for Blitzwing......doubtful he gets another redo unless they do a minor retool of the titans return version without the gimmick. Blaster....I am only surprised it is gonna take till 2022 to get it done. What i would like to see is the remaining mini-bots get the Huffer/Cliffjumper/Bumblebee/Pipes treatment as I really like how they have done them at the deluxe pricepoint but still at the smaller scale with better engineering and paint/acc. And.....SURESHOT AND POINTBLANK!!! Seriously Hasbro you have done every other 87 character so finish it already!

    I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on Warpath. I'd like to see a new Brawn and Gears for sure. I'd even replace my Powerglide and Cosmos if they want to make better versions...but they weren't in the movie so kind of off topic.

    I have considered that Blitzwing. I hesitate to buy any older figures because I've been spoiled on the G1ness, articulation and scale of the WFC figures. It feels like any figure I buy, I'll be replacing with a better version of that character in the next few years. The only major thing I feel might not get better versions soon are combiners...not sure what I'm going to do to find a nice version to represent them in my collection...

    I've tried and tried to like that Perceptor but it's just not G1 enough for my collection. I only know the character from the G1 cartoon(and his cameo in Animated) and that's what I want. Everyone has their own vision for their collection and I haven't seen a Perceptor that fits mine yet...so I'm kinda hoping for him most of all from SS86. Not to mention he deserves to be in this line for having a pretty major role in the movie.

    True, the articulation isn't as good as the current stuff. Takara Blitzwing looks pretty G1 as far as I'm concerned; much better than the hasbro one. Same for Perceptor. It works for me until they improve on it


    Yeah, the headmaster bit is weird, but other than that he looks the part. It's better than any other alternative that I found

    He's a member of one of the main Autobot crews and has dozens of lines of dialogue...way more than Jazz or Blaster and most of the Decepticons for sure.
