Looks like this week is the global release for the Bumblebee Movie toys as they are suddenly showing up in several countries around the world, including Canada, America, Hong Kong (according to Bladestorm) and here (in the NSW sightings).
If there was a soft launch date this week, we could see them showing up everywhere here in the next week.

Movie toys have also shown up in Singapore and New Zealand... who have the Tiny Changers wave 3 and Voice Changer Masks, so they should show up here as well.


The VW Bumblebee Studio Series Deluxe has also been found in America, just like here, it looks to have been held until the release of the main Bumblebee Movie toys.



The big news is a wave 2 Power Plus toy being found in Singapore, of Shatter as a car (the Titan Changer Shatter turns into a jet).

(I'd be surprised if these come to Australia, as there are other, more Movie-based, exclusives expected, that Retailers will be more likely to want first.)

Larger size images have been found on a UK store listing for these exclusives.

The movie toys have now hit Europe as well, as the global launch of the toys continues.

For those visiting Singapore in the next week or so, if you spend SG$100 at ToysRUs, you can get a free battle-damaged SS-01 Bumblebee toy... while stocks last.
Usually these sorts of promotions would be at other TRU stores in Asia, so could also be end up being offered in HK, Taiwan and Philippines.

Unfortunately, the TRU at Hong Kong didn't have the Bumblebee toy promotion while I was over there earlier in the week.


From NYCC, official images of the next wave of Energon Igniters Power series figures - new mould Optimus, car Shatter, jet Shatter, and Blitzwing (redeco Megatron with new head).

Picked up my first Movie toy - a little Bumblebee that turns into a VW Bug - only $10.

I saw Hot Rod and Barricade in the legends size as well. Wonder if that means they are going to be in the movie. I doubt it, I reckon they just needed more characters to make toys of.
