Thanks to Deonasis, added Universe Ramjet (white/blue redeco of Armada Starscream).

I will update this list annually, close to the "Remove your Batteries Day" which was proposed to be held November 1st every year (I can do up the annual update of all the new electronic toys for the year in this topic, and email it out as a reminder to members as well).

The Annual Battery Removal day has been moved from November 1st to February 1st, to allow me to include all toys from that calendar year.

Getting this year's done with a couple weeks to spare, this gives people time to go through their collection for any 2012 toys, plus any older ones they obtained during the last year.


Have I left anything out? And, if you see something on the list with a question mark that you know, please let me know.

Cybertron Screamer and Megs DO NOT come with batteries. Just helping out. You have a lot of battery changing to do, Griffin.

The large batteries (AA or bigger) can leak a lot more acid, damaging plastic and the more delicate electronics if they are in the path of the acid (gravity).
As an MIB/MISB collector I couldn't agree more. But as I pretty much go for G1 only they didn't come with batteries

At least there were only 5 in Gen1 (7 if you count the two Euro Actionmsters).

None came with batteries?

I still have ?'s on the Gen1 part of the list, but haven't had anyone willing to clarify it yet. I know all of them were inside solid boxes, so had no need for batteries in them (no try-me features), but left those as unknown until someone said for sure.

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.
