Default Early looks and official images of upcoming Movie toys

As the global release date approaches (April 24th), more and more Movie toys are making their way to store shelves and into the hands of people who probably didn't get them from legal sources.

A gallery of the new Voyager Megatron (not from a store).

A gallery of the new Voyager Hound (also not from a store).

The 1-steps have been found at a US store called Gamestop.

Speaking of 1-steps, the second wave case assortment has been found, which has the four from the first wave (Hound, Bumblebee, Optimus, Barricade), along with Grimlock (redeco from TF4 toyline), Megatron (new), and Berzerker (new).

And what looks to be wave 2 of the Legions size, we see Megatron, Drift and Crosshairs. Plus full-size official images of the wave 1 figures (Bumblebee, Grimlock, Barricade, Optimus).

More Movie toys have been found around the world at retail stores that have broken the global release date of April 24th...

Wave 1 Deluxe and 1-step toys found in Germany.

Wave 1 Voyagers (Optimus & Grimlock) found in America.


And a gallery of the new Voyager Optimus from that sighting in America.

The Legends and Tiny Turbo toys have been found at a ToysRUs in America, with 9 days left before the official release date.

There is also an official image of the wave 2 Titan Changer Megatron, but TFW have watermarked the images as if they own them, and won't credit the actual source or say where they got them from.

Plus a video review of the new 1-step Hound and Barricade toys.

One of the UK Retailers has put up a full end-cap Transformers movie display, with just days left until the embargo is lifted.

The prices on the toys don't give us hope at not seeing a big price rise here, particularly the Deluxe class, which would most likely see a price rise due to the size of the packaging, not the size of the toy.

Is it known if we are getting the toys on the 24th here as well? My local TRU moved all their Transformers products to the front of the store where they keep their promotions and displays, I assume this is in preparation for the Last Knight?

The 24th is still the official release date here in Australia, and the Retailers now have the toys from Hasbro... so you might see some put them out over the weekend as soon as they arrive at the stores, but most will put them out on the Monday (24th).

Official images for several June toys have been found, with wave 1 Leaders (Optimus & Megatron) and a number of wave 2 toys (Deluxe, Voyager & Legends).

(the wave 1 Leader class toys come out with wave 2, not in April with the rest of Wave 1)

A toy commercial for the first wave of Armor Up Turbo Changers, which are like 3-step toys, but have a flip up/over helmet gimmick.
The first wave is Optimus, Grimlock and Bumblebee.

A number of Amazons around the world have put up product pages for movie toys, including a lot of official images (probably no new ones though at this stage), which gives us a few future wave toy confirmations (for those maintaining checklists).

A video and photo review of the Voyager Megatron from wave 2.
Since there is no packaging in the review, and since this toy isn't scheduled for release until June, this might be a pre-production toy and if so, the colours might be slightly different to the actual production toy.

Plus, official images for the 1-step Berzerker toy... which has a different vehicle mode to the Deluxe toy.
