RID 1-step Optimus found in Target 6-pack
Jul 02, 2015 - 2:03 PM - by griffin
The RID 1-step Optimus toy was added to the Game App some time ago, but we then saw two waves of toys revealed that didn't have it... but now we know why - it's part of another Target exclusive 6-pack of 1-step toys.

Last year we had a Movie 6-pack which had a redeco "Silver Knight" redeco of a regular released toy... but this... [Read More]

More TRU exclusive RID Clash toys revealed or released
Jul 01, 2015 - 12:09 PM - by griffin
ToysRUs looks to have a global exclusive deal on the Robots in Disguise Clash toys, as all the ones so far released have exclusive stickers on them.

Australia was first to get the Legion Clash 2-packs toys (Optimus Vs Megatronus, Underbite Vs Bumblebee).

And we were also first to get the Clash Ultra size Megatronus toy.

But then Canada gets the Clash 3-step toys (Optimus & Bumblebee), and ... [Read More]

GEN Devastator now out in America
Jul 01, 2015 - 11:59 AM - by griffin
This would be big news for us here if America got it first and it suggested that it was coming here soon... but I'm still making a note of it as it is a big deal for the bulk of Transformers fans (who live in America), and hopefully it gets enough local coverage here to put off more Scalpers from thinking about snagging them up to sell on ebay, as Americans...

Rescue Bots new Bumblebee and Amazon Optimus gallery
Jun 30, 2015 - 9:19 PM - by griffin
Rescue Bots aren't a huge thing for us older fans so this is probably the only gallery out there for these two toys.

The newest wave of convertible bots in the new packaging included a new mould Bumblebee, back as his original car mode... but now in the smaller size scale of the current convertible toys.

Plus, the recent Amazon (or online) exclusive Optimus Tow-truck toy arrived at my post box last week, so I have photos of it as well... which was a surprise to find... [Read More]

JP ToysRUs Geoffrey the Giraffe Optimus toy
Jun 28, 2015 - 5:46 PM - by griffin
This one is so left-field, it took me a moment to stop laughing.

One of the next batch of Japanese incentive freebie toys, will be a redeco of the Legion sized RID Optimus toy, painted in ToysRUs colours and given Giraffe detailing to mimic the store mascot animal.

The other two freebie incentive toys are... [Read More]

Gen2 Defensor gallery
Jun 26, 2015 - 3:39 PM - by griffin
About a year ago there was an American ebayer who works with the host of the Toy Hunter show who got his hands on a lot of unreleased Hasbro toys and prototypes, and I think it is the same person as this one who now also has a set of the Generation 2 Protectobots they are sharing photos of (probably for publicity before they list it for sale).

BigW Devastator update (26th June)
Jun 26, 2015 - 3:01 PM - by griffin
After seeing all the problems people are having with Devastator, and finding out from my local store that they were yet to get ANY Transformers toys for the sale, I rang up BigW head office to ask them a few questions.

Apparently this is more likely a supplier issue than an internal BigW supply issue, as we know from Hasbro Australia that there have been problems with getting stock to Retailers after a recent move of warehouses.

The good news is that on their computer... [Read More]
