    They're mainline releases, so everywhere should sell them. They're only Takara Tomy Mall exclusive in Japan because the majority of earthrise is Takara Tomy Mall Exclusive in Japan.

    I own like five or six movie Bees, AoE AND TLK Hound (despite not being anything like G1 Hound) and lots of others from the movieverse so I obviously don't have a problem with the creative licenses taken with the movies. Go pick that fight with someone else.

    Sheesh. When I was defending the movies back in the day here was I this obnoxious about it fam? If so, sorry for being such a jackass about it.

    Should, yes. But are they actually on the shelf? No. Atleast in my city (and seems like many others from people on here saying the same things) very rarely do brick and mortar stores carry anything below deluxe size. I haven't see anything at that price point since Power of the Primes in my stores. If it wasn't for BBTS or other online retailers, I doubt I'd ever get my hands on the smaller price point figures like this.

    Target carries them, but Walmart opted to not carry them anymore since half way through Siege for unknown reasons. So I think the safest bet is still BBTS for the little guys.

    You mean like you’re infamous for complain about everything?

    also if you read his post, it would mean killing off the battlemasters. I’m not arguing, but selling $5 single micromasters would mean not selling $5 battlemasters

    Thats my problem, I don't have a Target in my city (which seems to get everything no problem from what I see). My Wal-Mart atleast only carries deluxe and Voyager most the time. I havn't seen any leader size figures since like Titan's Return. Though ironically I did see that "Ultra size" (not sure what the price point is for that?) Cyberverse Grimlock a few months back.

    BBTS doesn't have pre-orders yet for these figures, which I find odd considering practically everything that was shown at Toy Fair with those two 2 packs was up for pre-order later that day. Im hopeful though.

    Likely a regional thing. We've seen posts where the Micro Masters and Battle Masters going on clearance. So, if you're not finding them at local store, just opt to buy them from an online reseller.


    There are other online stores... Since you didn't state which figures, am I to assume you're referring to the Astro Squad and Race Track Patrol figures?

    Yes, though I could be mistaken as I haven't looked very hard, atleast from what I could gather from reading on here, its seems a lot of the "big" toy sites where most people order from don't have them up yet? (BBTS, TFsource, Amazon, etc). Again, could be wrong.

    TCP had the pre-order listings. Just wait it out. I'm sure there'll be other site that would post up their pre-order listings.



    EDIT: Found these, not cheap though. Might also want to check Ebay. Good luck!

    hate to say it but...am i the only one who kinda feels like the original micromaster were better? ball joints dont work well at this size, half the teams are missing and they seem to actually have more kibble. im tempted to swap my modern ones out for vintage atm
