    Just checked, Shockwave, Omega Supreme and Galvatron did not come with batteries included as per front of US/Aus boxes that I have. I also have a Canadian version of Sky Lynx that also says batteries not included.

    Default The 2014 Annual Check your Batteries Listing

    A week late (because I only just finished up the 2013 Checklist), but here are the 2013 toys with Electronics in them.... for anyone who has removed their toys from packaging and no longer needs to play with the electronic gimmicks (or plans to put the toys into storage). This listing will let you know which of your toys to open up before you put them somewhere for the next decade or two.

    The COMPLETE Battery listing is located here, and this 2014 topic will be merged with it after a couple weeks, so that it archives all the updates and submissions.
    NOTE - if you are a SEALED collector, it is considered better to leave the batteries in the toys, as there is greater value in the packaging remaining sealed (even if the batteries leak, you shouldn't see or ever know about it anyway).

    And thanks to ebay, for packaging pictures of the Armada-Energon-Cybertron figures, the Unicron Trilogy section should now be complete.

    There are still some ??? unknowns to fill, so any submission here or on the battery listing topic, will help the archive for future generations.

    I'm looking at the hammer that came with Transformers Prime Poweriser Ultra Magnus. It's got a light up feature. It also doesn't appear to have anyway to remove the battery that powers the light without completely (and perhaps irreparably) pulled apart.

    This is the only Poweriser toy I have; is this a common thing with their weapons?

    Sorry, I didn't see this until now while doing up the listing of the 2014 toys.

    If you didn't figure out by now, the screw closest to the handle is the one to unscrew, to access the batteries.

    Default Annual Check Your Batteries Day - 2015

    This is the list of Transformers toys released in 2014 by Hasbro and TakaraTomy that have Electronics that require Batteries (either included and not included in packaging).

    I'm actually early this year, because I forgot that I allocated February 1st (instead of early January) as the Annual day for updating the Battery List, and for people with out-of-box figures to remove them if they no longer need the electronics to work or are about to put them in storage.

    If you have Sealed toys that you will NEVER open, it is recommended to leave them sealed with the batteries in them... as there is more value in them staying sealed. People buying Sealed older figures to open should expect battery leakage and not hold it against the previous owner.

    There was another reduction in the number of Electronic toys this year, after last year was already a smaller number than previous years... maybe Electronics and Batteries are getting too expensive to include in too many toys.
    This year also saw the introduction of smaller Button Cell Batteries as well (LR-41), which probably aren't much cheaper than the LR-44, but probably reduces a lot of weight over a shipping container full of toys (or just done to limit the over-sized electronic gimmicks from ruining the toys).


    LEGEND:
    I = Batteries ARE Included in packaging
    NI = Batteries are NOT Included in packaging
    AA, AAA, C, D = Common Battery sizes
    LR44 = Button Cells used in Transformers toys are referred to as LR44 (image at link) but can also be known as A76 or L1154.
    LR41 = Tiny Button Cells


    TF4 Age of Extinction
    Leader Bumblebee - gutted/removed
    Chomp & Stomp Grimlock - 2xAAA I
    Titan Electronic Optimus - 2xAAA I
    Titan Electronic Bumblebee - 2xAAA I
    Titan Electronic Grimlock - 2xAAA I
    Construct-Bots Dinofire Grimlock - 2xLR44 I
    (Target Silver Knight) Grimlock (FOC VOY) - 2xLR44 I

    Rescue Bots
    Heatwave (large Brontosaurus) - 3xAA I
    Optimus Primal (large T-Rex) - 3xAAA I

    Hero Mashers
    Electronic Optimus Prime -2xLR41 I
    Electronic Grimlock - 2xLR41 I

    Exclusive US
    YOTH Starscream - 2xAAA I
    MP-03 Masterpiece Grimlock - 2xLR44 I
    BotCon 2014 Scorponok - gutted/removed
    BotCon 2014 Alpha Trizer - gutted/removed

    Exclusive HK
    Masterpiece Grimlock reissue (January) - 2xLR44 I
    MP-08X Masterpiece Grimlock (comic) reissue - 2xLR44 I
    MP-5G Megatron Gold Version - 2xLR44 I

    JP TakaraTomy
    G26 GO! Optimus EX Prime (dragon/train) - 3xAAA NI
    LA-01 Lost Age Battle Command Optimus Prime - 2xAAA NI
    LA-14 Lost Age Battle Command Optimus Prime - (2xAAA NI?)
    TFC-A02 Cloud Brawn - gutted/removed
    GEN VOY Fireblast Grimlock - 2xLR44 I


    See, a really tiny list for 2014... which means less spare batteries for me to use for my Remote Controls around the house.


    There are still some ??? unknowns to fill on the master list, so any submission here or on the battery listing topic will help the archive for future generations.
