    More Lego-styled blocks for Transformers, but fortunately it isn't from Hasbro, as they are a licensed product, and it is just a box of brightly coloured building blocks packed with some cardboard characters and stickers. Found at a ToysRUs in the Philippines.

    New sightings in America in the last week or two... just to be a tease to us who will probably have to wait a while, or not get them at all.

    WFC Siege Voyager w2 - Starscream & Soundwave (within a day of being found in Australia).
    Studio Series Voyager w6 - ROTF Rampage and Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime (we are still on wave 2 here, with Kmart recently doing a major restock of them)
    Studio Series Deluxe w6 - ROTF Scrapmetal, car mode Shatter, TF5 Cogman.
    Universal Studios exclusive black/grey Snarl - found at the discount store Ross for just US$8 (compared to US$30 at Universal Studios).

    Something I didn't realise until today when I saw it on BWTF, is that the "Generations Selects" (Gen2) Combat Megatron (redeco Siege Voyager Megatron) was released last month in America - it looks like it was available for purchase from the Hasbro Pulse website as soon as it was revealed at New York Toyfair (like the first four Studio Series Deluxe toys last year)... and was in the hands of collectors in America within days.
    See the link for a review of the new redeco toy.

    Just found in America - Cyberverse 1-step w4 (Wheeljack, Hotrod), and Tiny Changers w5 (first seen in HK last month - we still haven't had wave 4 here).

    The second series of Botbots (green bubble) 5-packs have been found in America, along with the second wave Siege Battle Masters.

    The second wave Siege Leader Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime toy has been found in America, three months before it was supposed to be released... so it might just be a few cases being shipped from the factory in China early by mistake.
    Only a month ago, Hasbro's official press release had this toy listed for July, so it seems unlikely that they'd have brought the release forward by so much... unless the Leader class has been outselling their estimates and they have already sold out wave 1.

    Still a little early, but probably close enough to the official release of June/July, is the Siege Galaxy Force version Optimus, which has now also been found in Canada.


    Also, the Cyberverse Thundercracker (Warrior), which was supposed to be a global ToysRUs exclusive before the store closed down in several countries... it has been found at an independent store in America, at a price that suggests that they got it from Hasbro, rather than as an import from the countries that it was released in last year.

    Those mysterious Bakery & Lawn Botbots that were a late addition to the series 1, have appeared at ToysRUs in Canada (the Bakery ones so far), suggesting that they might have been one of the many TRU exclusives planned before the collapse of the chain in most countries. As such, they might not show up here.
