    Yep... I don't think they've ever supplied batteries in the packaging that weren't in the toy.

    Griffin, I'd like to add another to your list. The fourth, final and most epic of the G1 Optimus Primes is Star Convoy OP (1991) who requires 4 x AA batteries to operate his tank tracks. I very much doubt he came with batteries but I can personally confirm that the 2005 reissue definitely didn't come with them.

    Well that's interesting... I haven't even got a section for JP exclusive Gen1 toys. I'll have to have a look through them all, and see if I missed any others.
    Thanks for that.

    Well I guess it's that time of year again to think about what has batteries that came out this year. Only toy I bought that takes batteries that came out this year is MP36 Megatron and they are not installed. Even Trypticon didn't have a battery powered gimmick.

    Yeah... the list keeps getting shorter each year, either because of the cost of shipping heavier toys from Asia (with or without batteries), and because of tightening shipping restrictions that prevent most postal services from sending batteries in the mail anymore (which would impact on their own online sales, and online sales of their biggest customers like Amazon and Walmart).

    The only ones I can think of on the top of my head at the moment are the voice changer helmet and masks.

    Does that huge TLK dragonish looking TF that we are selling at Big W even have batteries?

    It does, as it has that black light gimmick to it.

    Looking at my toy shelves... the RC Sqweeks is another one, and I think the Cybertron planet does as well.
    Those Allspark Tech have those power cubes, but I think they are the battery that is charged... not enclosed batteries inside it.

    Um... the Power Bank Optimus (HasCon exclusive) is another one... and the JP phone Optimus with the LED bluetooth must have a button cell as well.

    And I'll have to look over the Masterpiece toys from this year, to see if any had light up features.
