Default Studio Series 15 Bumblebee & Charlie

SS-15 Bumblebee was only recently recently revealed at SDCC, and even though it appeared to only be SS-01 Bumblebee with a very minor paint app difference, it looked like it was just being packed with a figurine of Charlie from the Bumblebee Movie... which made it seem like an annoying doubling up (selling) of a near-identical toy by Hasbro, just for the bonus figurine.


The surprising thing is that Hasbro didn't actually fully show it off at SDCC. As it has just been found at Target in America... and it not only has the SS-01 Bumblebee and Charlie figurine, but comes packed with a full body kit for the Camaro car mode, to give it race skirting, spoilers, and hood air intakes... plus stickers.
(the price the person paid was a guess by the cashier, as it wasn't in the system yet, but should be more than the Deluxe US$20 price point)


With us still waiting on the second wave of Deluxes in Australia (Jazz, Lockdown), will we see this here... and will it be at the Voyager price point.

This has now been listed on Entertainment Earth for US$30 with a heap of official images.

That price is the standard Voyager price point at this time... so if it comes here, expect about AU$50.
The EE listing says it is an exclusive to them (after it was to originally be a ToysRUs exclusive), so it's appearance at a Target store is a mystery. Maybe EE have "exclusive" in the product title because that was it's original purpose at TRU, but now that it isn't being released there, Hasbro could be selling it to any retailer who wants it.

This has now shown up in Canada as well... but at TRU, so no help for us here though (if Hasbro Australia can't get a retailer here wanting it).
