Default Licensed pinata, go-karts, fidgit spinners and busy book

A number of creative licensed Transformers items have popped up recently for America, including...

- Optimus & Bumblebee Go-Karts

- Optimus Pinata

- Optimus, Megatron & Bumblebee Fidgit Spinners

- Busy Book with 12 figurines (both modes of Optimus, Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, Hotrod, Soundwave)

Most of these (if not all) aren't likely to show up here, but they should show up on online stores like Amazon for those here who really want them.

I really like the look of the busy book. I'm interested in getting one for each of the kids. I have no idea if I should try and import it or if I should wait for them to turn up at something like big W here. I have no idea if these books are distributed in Australia.

The Busy Book (with figurines) has now been released (September 1st), and some photos have been posted up of the book and the figurines.

Under the same "Fidget Its" banner as the Fidget spinners, Hasbro are also doing two Transformers themed Fidget Cubes - Optimus and Bumblebee.

Fidget Cubes have been out for a little while, and are a small cube with moving parts on each side that are different to each side.

The Transformers fidgit spinners are now out in America... so probably expect to see them here soon, before the fad ends.

It's fairly cheap at Amazon, probably safer to just buy. I bought it just for the pvc figures which are similar quality to Heroes of Cybertron. Plus they let you see the new alt and robot modes of EVergreen

No sightings have been posted, and I haven't seen them anywhere either.

I found one at a Reject shop the other day for a couple of bucks.

Any images to be found of the PVC figures? (as the spinner itself interests me little)
