    Default Rise of the Beasts toyline

    Early info is being found on wholesaler sites for the 7th Movie toys... specifically the gimmick toys for the younger fans.
    With the movie delayed a whole year to June 2023, it is strange that these are still being listed for release in April 2022. The toys would have already been in various stages of pre-production (moulds would have been built and tested by the time it was announced that the movie had been pushed back a year, and Hasbro would have already booked in production days at the factories, that they may not be able to cancel), so I wonder if we will still end up seeing some released in 2022 so that Hasbro doesn't have to sit on the stock for a year, costing them a lot of money storing them somewhere.

    Another online store has Rise of the Beast toys listed for release on April this year... despite the move being pushed back a year to mid 2023.

    If the new movie toys are indeed coming out in April, it definitely means that they were in full production before the decision was made to delay the release of the movie... and it would just cost too much to sit on the toys for a whole year.
    We've seen it before, and unfortunately it hurts the toyline and Brand as a whole. The toys don't have the "advertising" of the movie, so they don't sell well enough for retailers to order more (if there are later waves), and a larger Brand like Transformers would then be weighed down by dead stock that retailers have to discount (lose money) just to get rid of them.

    In 2020 we had Top Gun and Halo products to go with the Top Gun movie and Halo Infinite game that were meant to be released that year. Top Gun stuff just sat on the shelves, but the Halo toys and clothing moved. I'm not sure if Rise of the Beast will be another Halo and sell regardless or another Top Gun and shelf warm.
    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.

    Having had Beast Wars Transformers toys on shelves for the last year, and the Transformers brand overall, will probably help the toys sell regardless of the movie delay - compared to say Top Gun which was/is a movie from the 80s with no momentum as a toyline.

    If the shelves are full of gimmick movie toys though...

    More evidence that the Mv7 toyline is coming out in April (and not held back for the release of the movie) is a listing found on Amazon America for a "Battle Master Rhinox" for release on or around April 15th (the release dates on Amazon pages are not always reliable or accurate).

    The product number listed (F4600) seems about right for products scheduled for this year.

    Some new Movie 7 items found somewhere online - Gimmick toys... Converting masks and Titan Changers. No images or specifics yet, but it shouldn't be anything too exciting.

    • MV7 Titan Changer Optimus Prime
    • MV7 Converting Mask Assortment

    Even though that item never ended up being released on April 15th, the product page is still there with old date, but without any new details.

    Some new toy info for the new movie toyline...

    Product codes and names of some of the gimmick toys (source not noted).

    Smash Changers us$31.49 each


    • Smash Changer Optimus Prime (F4642)
    • Smash Changer Rhinox (F4643)
    • Smash Changer Optimus Primal (F464)


    Battle Changers/Battle Chargers us$10.99 each


    • Battle Changer Bumblebee (F4607)
    • Battle Charger Rhinox (F4606)
    • Battle Charger Mirage (F4609)
    • Battle Changer Scourge (F4610)


    2-In-1 Optimus Prime Blaster (F3901)



    And this item started circulating online from an unknown source, and it looks way too technical to be fan-made.
    It is a role-play mask of Optimus Primal (gorilla), but unlike all previous role-play masks/helmets, this one also transforms into a playable toy robot.
    It is definitely something new, as I don't think I have seen anything like it for Transformers before... at least, from Hasbro or TakaraTomy.

    A second transformable mask has surfaced online, which is Bumblebee.

    And the instructions for the Optimus mask have been posted up as well.
