Unlicensed Ironfist/Fisitron Prototype Revealed

TransformersAwesomeThe long-dormant Mech Ideas Gauntlet (inspired by Last Stand of the Wreckers Ironfist) has been revealed! Due in May/June, the little guy is expected to be on the smaller and cheaper side of these things.

Given the deadness of the character and that he's about to have yet another Club/Convention toy made of him, the IDW-style incarnation of him is seeming less and less likely to see production - as such this may be a good purchase and may even be my first third-party purchase depending on what gets announced at BotCon 2014.

Transformers Generations Jetfire Box Revealed

TransformersJetfireTFW2005 reports Generations Leader Jetfire In-box Images appeared on Facebook, but since a login is required we'll just link to there.

The figure seems to have lost a few paint applications since Toy Fair, but has retailed the red chrome. Pricing is estimated at $44.99 and since we're seeing a boxed sample picture, you can probably expect this any time within 60 days and... much later than that.

Also I've been hearing numerous reports of Kmart putting Age of Extinction items out on shelf but refusing to sell them - so hunt at your own peril!

More New Marvel Universe at "Dollar" (not $1) Stores

MarvelHulkI spotted a new 3 3/4-Inch Hasbro Marvel Universe Hulk Action Figure at Dollar General on their cheap, rubber-banded cardbacks. On the back was a new Spider-Man and a seemingly new Astonishing X-Men Wolverine.

These figures are probably showing up elsewhere and are $6 each. You'll probably recognize the molds from Hasbro's cheaper figure initiative - there's no new tooling here. The previous wave included "driver" figures from Iron Man, Captain America, and Iron Man vehicles. I'd say of this new batch, Wolverine is the one to get - it's certainly the one I'm hoping to see soon.

Transformers "Dollar Store" Legends Return in New, $6.75 Styles

TransformersMini and ExpensiveDuring my toy run I saw RTS/Generations Repacks of Bumblebee and Starscream, in Age of Extinction-style packaging with swell IDW-inspired painted card art. This was at a Phoenix, AZ Family Dollar retail store.

The prices are big increases over previous releases. Bumblebee has a new black Autobot symbol on his chest (although some on eBay have red), while Starscream has the holes for wing-mounted cannons but no cannons are included. Other figures were not visible at this location. For those who saw yesterday's Marvel update, Family Dollar has the Hulk/Spider-Man/Wolverine wave for $6.75 a pop as well. I'm keeping my eye on Big Lots! for $5 or $6 price tags. An Optimus Prime is also available.

Transformers Walmart Age of Extinction Exclusive Repaints

TransformersSlugOn The Official Transformers Facebook Are Several New Walmart Dinobots. For a non-commemorative toy, some of the molds are unusually old - a new Strafe is a repaint of 1996's Terrorsaur, which may be one of the oldest repaints we've seen in the modern era of toys. This assumes, of course, you don't count the high-dollar G1 repaints/reissues in Japan.

The Triceradon/Guiledart mold is now a purple Dinobot Slug, Energon Doomlock/Cruellock is now Grimlock, and Beast Hunters Rippersnapper also appears to be Grimlock. No love for Slash?

No release dates were given and no packaging was shown, but these look rather final - so it's not impossible to expect them to be on-shelf at a Walmart near you very soon. Each dinosaur seems to be paired with a repaint of a Legends or Cyberverse toy. I declare the purple Slug the winner - that's a fun little mold there. It's been a while since some of these molds were trotted out, so to the vast majority of boys ages 4-11 these may be brand new. The 2007 movie was 7 years ago now, so "Beast Era" toys are things a lot of kids flat out haven't seen on store shelves. Smart move on Hasbro's part, I hope we see more of this sort of thing.

Target Age of Extinction Exclusives Revealed

TransformersAwesomeOn Facebook, find Target Age of Extinction Transformers Exclusives. Because they're bad at marketing, no release date or price was released but it's probably not improbable to expect these either next week or at the end of June when the movie hits.

The Walmart/All-Star Deluxe Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime is getting a chrome silver repaint and packaged with Fall of Cybertron Grimlock in G1 colors - and gold chrome. They also have a swell Constructbots Grimlock and some other items. Not shown is a Toys R Us Bumblebee Evolution pack which features the deluxe 2013 figure with MechTech Jolt's gun in new colors, plus another Bumblebee based on the movies - but the toy itself I do not recognize.

More Transformers Movie Dinobots Revealed

TransformersPinsVia TFW2005: Frito-Lay Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Campaign Images - First Look at Slog and Snarl.

Toys were "leaked" on a "rumor" list last year, but none were seen yet. "Slog" is basically a movieverse Sludge, while Snarl is more or less Snarl. Even though these names appeared on a Hasbro.com list with SKUs last year, so were a bunch of Dark of the Moon toys that didn't see release in the USA. As such, be hopeful, but don't be too disappointed if G1 Sludge continues to be the only US-distributed sauropod dinobot.

Transformers Age of Extinction Now?

MarvelHulkDepending on where you shop, Transformers: Age of Extinction Toys are on sale right now. Order some at Entertainment Earth or order some at Amazon if you would.

The picture comes from a Kroger-owned grocery store, and I've seen Constructbots and Titan Heroes figures at numerous Walmarts over the weekend. Most Target stores have a clear Transformers section, so I anticipate them being on-shelf as early as this afternoon. Swerve and Cosmos are shipping too, but I have not personally seen either yet. I took a UPC from a deluxe Generations Age of Extinction figure around town to various price scanners and found Walmart and Target were charging $14.99, and other places like Kmart were closer to $16.99. So shop around with wave 1 - there's going to be a lot to go around, and you'll save a lot of money if you can hold out for a couple of bucks cheaper.

Transformers Don't Glow - Here's Why!

TransformersNo Go on Glow GlowTransformers designer and all around nice guy Aaron Archer is now on Twitter, and I asked him a question long on my mind - how come I don't have any glow-in-the-dark Transformers? He generously answered thusly!

"it never came up as an option. The marketers would find it very hard to encourage kids to play puzzles in the dark."

"Good GITD effect can compromise performance of the plastic, TF hinges & joints would fail over time. VM (chrome) works the same"

Well, that explains that! As a wee lad I had glow-in-the-dark Transfomers pajamas - I still remember Jazz - so I guess toys are going to be a ways off still.

Dinobots Slog, Snarl from Age of Extinction Revealed

TransformersAwesomeOn iO9, find First Look At More New Dinobots Of Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Slog (pictured) is a large, black and red and supposedly $25ish Voyager-class Sauropod. This may well be the first dinosaur of this type to get the Autobot treatment here in the USA since Sludge in 1985.

Joining him is a green, alleged deluxe named Snarl - more or less a Stegosaurus. There's a lot of green, and the head looks rather bug-like. It's gorgeous - buy one when it hopefully hits stores later this summer or around the DVD/Blu-Ray launch. (Or becomes some de facto international exclusive because of poor planning.)

Also, Generations Cliffjumper has been revealed by Transformers Colombia's Facebook page.

Transformers Swerve, Cosmos Hit Earlier This Week

TransformersCosmosThey're finally here! Swerve and Cosmos continue to hit Target stores this week.

I found the pair on Tuesday of this week, and be careful - the Cosmos head is molded in white plastic, painted red. The red paint is already scraping off, so buy two or don't transform it. Mine somehow got a nasty gash in his head in under a day, and because I'm stupid I like the mold so much I'll likely buy a second. I should note that the date stamp on the toy and packaging indicates these were likely produced in March of this year, which is surprising given that they showed up overseas in 2013.

Regular Scorn hit shops across America this week, and with the flexible tail and sail I can't assume the chrome will hold up to a lot of play on this special version - still, it's worth seeing if you haven't checked it out yet. The buy-it-now price was $260.

Toys R Us Dinobots Exclusive Updates

TransformersAwesomeToys R Us posted their Transformers: Age Of Extinction Dinobots Evolution 2-Packs today. Strafe and Slug each come with a Mini-Con sidekick (last seen as shared "dollar store" Dark of the Moon items) and are a mere $14.99 - the same price as a plain deluxe, making these desirable. Slug seems the same as the single release. The Grimlock set is $39.99, pairing a heavily redecorated (but still similar) Voyager-class robot with a very heavily redecorated Transformers Energon Grimlock as the stand-in for the G1 character. The deco is quite good on the latter, while the mold is rather crude today and even when released in early 2005, it was pretty unimpressive.

Also, Masterpiece Grimlock is showing up at Toys R Us for $59.99. I haven't seen one myself but the scalpers on eBay speak for themselves and prove Hasbro is charging too little for these.
