    Default Studio Series 86 Pre-orders at EB Games and Zing

    EB Games and Zing have just posted the recently announced SS86 figures for preorder!! Cheaper than the Kingdom figures in their respective size classes. All have a release date of February 2021 at this stage. Great news for anyone worried about missing out on these Transformers.

    Firstly Leader Grimlock with Wheelie for $99:

    Keen on Jazz, Hotrod and more than likely Grimlock. Hope we get more announcements of the others coming out afterwards

    Studio Series has always been at a lower price point than Generations.

    There are too many exclusives at the moment in pre-order, I'm not locking into a dozen odd regular release toys (SS & Kingdom) as well, especially if they should be widely available next year at most retailers.

    I wonder if these are the only ones for "86", or if there will be more... as I didn't hear anything about a wave number, and it looks like Kingdom might have the rest of the 1986 Movie toys (if the leaked toy listings are accurate).
    I think those leaked listings also suggest that there are more live-action movie toys coming in Studio Series, so if that's true, I wonder if these six are the only ones.

    Exactly. Still waiting to see Inferno and Tracks from Kingdom. Soo many upcoming toys and retail is struggling to keep up with wave 2/3 of Earthrise.

    Soooo... Will these actually see regular retail release here (will I be able to walk into a Kmart/Target/Big W and grab them off the shelf), or are they some sort of exclusive yet again, with EB being my only option?

    SS86 is just the next wave of SS. You should be able to pick them up at any store that stocks the current SS line and avoid EB Games price gouging.
    I have a list of all G1 characters that have been released in CHUG form. You can find it here. Please feel free to let me know if I got anything wrong so I can fix it.

    Suppose you could always preorder and cancel if you end up finding it cheaper elsewhere or potentially price match(?). At least you're guaranteed to get it instead of maybe finding it in store if there's a particular figure you want, especially if it's a 1 per case figure.

    Do EB refund the deposit or keep it as a penalty (and offsets the money they lose on any excess stock that gets discounted to sell it).
