    Ordered Shatter off Amazon.ca, too. Sentinel as well. I have to go shopping this week so I may give my EB Games a call and see if they have Jeep Bee.

    Just that it's been 3 months apart from the US since they were spotted there.

    Good luck. They've featured several triple changers in the movies (of course none of them the actual triple changers fans know or love) despite the fact they obviously have no idea how to make them work as toys. What a neat feature - so neat it is completely pointless.

    Perhaps the designs don't have to be so messy and they might be able to make a toy work. For a collaborative process is sure seems like Hasbro has been railroaded by Bay and his house designers. Never sell your soul to the devil folks, never worth it in the end.

    How did you order Sentinel Prime from Amazon.ca? I can’t find it. I actually chatted with Amazon support because they’ve had Scrapper on their site for a long time but not his wave mate Sentinel. They told me they would look into it and get back to me in 24 hours but that was a week ago. The reason I told them to look into it is a board member here ordered Scrapper and received Sentinel by mistake so I know they have it.

    Ebay:
    Impressive, they are in Czech republic too and even cheaper than UK.

    I have feeling like distribution of new Hasbro products is like lottery. You never know when it comes.

    If by “several” you mean three. Also, Shatter and Dropkick weren’t Bay designs, and unlike traditional triple changers that compromise their alt modes, they turn into fully accurate muscle cars and jet/helicopter. That’s pretty much impossible to pull off even without a robot mode in the mix.

    Also, what even is that nonsense about selling your soul to the devil? Are you... what are you on about? I’d say the live action films have been very worth it, so worth it they can continue to sell high-priced niche collector figures years after the films have passed. Sounds like a good deal to me.


    He’s got his own listing now:

    That is called realistic realism would you prefer all transformers look like LEGO blocky boring toys in bay movies they realistic 13 foot robot does not transform into radio as cartoon shows.,

    You say triple changers unrecognizable to fans know and love look at cartoons they did it first before bay prime combine with omega surpreame in emerging series , prime triple changer is fire truck with wings and robot mode and super mode and fans love that toy with no complaints but once bay decide make realistic looking robot transformers with realistic designs people cry about it what you see in bay movies happen in cartoons first.,

    If you don’t like something in bay movies then you are saying you don’t like something in cartoons and toys to they did it first not bay

    I like how you go on this long winded “Bay bad because triple changers don’t get triple changing toys” rant yet completely ignore that there’s almost always a mode that is completely compromised in just about every triple changing figure we’ve gotten in Generations.

    As SPLIT LIP said, Shatter and Dropkicks figures transform into fully accurate vehicles seen in the films because they aren’t compromised by a triple changing gimmick. I’d much rather have that than a triple changing figure.

    I would've liked if Hasbro had attempted something like the Clones of G1, Where Shatter and Dropkick have almost identical robot modes between their two alt mode releases. So Car Shatter has a mostly identical robot mode sculpt, complete with wings, intakes and stuff on her car mode toy, and car mode Dropkick likewise had the rotors and cockpit of his helicopter mode. (even though car Dropkick is a fantastic figure as-is)

    Though that also would've meant sacrificing toys of their car-based robot modes, as briefly as those appeared.

    Thank you so much! After you posted that you had purchased it there I did yet another search and I still couldn't find the link! I just purchased it from your link but I still can't find it if I search on the site. How did you find it?

    EDIT: I just figured it out. The stupid listing has "Sentinel P" instead of "Sentinel Prime" so it wasn't coming up in my search results because I was typing Prime. Deep sigh!!

    Using the existing listing at Amazon.com and changing the URL from .com to .ca.

    To make it even easier and avoid useless clutter in the URL, shorten it to its bare minimum: The domain (amazon.com or amazon.ca), the /dp/ directory, and the ASIN. Everything else is useless junk that's completely unneccesary for the URL to work.

    So you get this for Amazon.com:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B083VLM939

    And this for Amazon.ca:
    https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B083VLM939

    And there you see why you couldn't find him: He's listed as "Tra Gen Studio Series Voyager Sentinel P" at Amazon.ca.

    Awesome tip, thank you for the help! What`s even more strange is that I even tried looking at a list of all Hasbro Transformers products on Amazon.ca and he wasn`t in that list either. I think something is really messed up in their system. Anyway I have it ordered now so problem solved. Now if only they would list Overload...... I need him to complete Devastator. I don`t see him on Amazon.com or .ca.

    Thank you again! Very much appreciated! I searched in many different ways but it wouldn`t come up. I`ll bookmark it in case it comes back in stock.

    Truth to be told, Amazon's own search function sucks. I prefer using this website:
    ASIN to UPC Search in Bulk

    All you need is a manufacturer barcode, either a UPC (mostly for non-European releases pre-2020, and also still for new figures from existing assortments launched pre-2020, mostly) or EAN (for European releases pre-2020, and most new figures from assortmants launched since the beginning of 2020).

    And for that, I maintain this very useful database.
