Transformers Age of Extinction Exclusives Hitting

TransformersStrafeToys R Us retail stores are now stocking Transformers: Age of Extinction Evolution Exclusives. The Grimlock 2-pack has 2 figures with new deco on both of them, and is $39.99.

The Strafe and Slug 2-packs seem to be entirely existing products, but at $14.99 per set you'll want these over the individually packaged versions of the toys. The bonus Dark of the Moon Dinobots Rav (Strafe/Swoop) and Triceradon (Slag/Slug) Mini-Cons are a heck of a freebie. And for those of you who have been asking, yes, the package has art of the Technobot G1 Strafe rather than Dinobot Swoop (or Rav) on the side panel. Why? I have no idea. I'm also hearing Masterpiece Grimlock's price went up to $79.99.

SDCC: Transformers Knights of Unicron Band Set

TransformersAwesomeVia the ET: Exclusive Preview: Transformers Rock Out as 'Knights of Unicron' for Comic-Con. At $185, this is a boxed set with 4 figures and numerous other ephemera such as booklets, posters, and whatnot. One item looks like a vinyl record sleeve, and I reached out to HunterPR and was told it was not a vinyl record. Since the documentation indicates song titles like Circuit Breaker, Laser Phaser, and Rust Without You I wouldn't put it past them putting out a vinyl-free LP, which is to say, a jacket with MP3 download codes.

I anticipate at least one more robot in disguise for the convention, plus a few other items, but I doubt anything will be quite as amazing as this one. It's certainly one of the most lavish-packaging jobs for a convention boxed set and I doubt we'll soon see it topped in terms of sheer ambition.

The set makes use of molds from 2010-2012 with wigs, scarves, and 2008-2009 Animated accessories. America wears the crown for the truly unusual and special in exclusive toys. USA! USA! USA!

Transformers Legends: New Japanese Toy Line

TransformersBeastly Things, Shoo ShooTakara-Tomy posted Transformers Legends. This is one of many - there will be more - confusingly similarly named series of toys that will screw up your eBay searches.

2,800 yen Rattrap is based on the now-shipping Generations Deluxe mold, but with red rat eyes and a few other tweaks to make it match the Japanese redeco. Optimus Primal is based on the 2006 10th Anniversary version sold in the USA and Japan, but in colors more closely matching the original toy rather than the TV series. He'll be 6,500 yen, which I believe is more than I paid for the 2-pack with Megatron at Toys R Us here in the USA.

Also, check out this 10th Anniversary Milk Black Optimus Prime that's probably a knock-off but who the heck knows. It'll kill some time. (Thanks, Monz!) Toys R Us Japan has filthy Infiltration Mode Optimus Prime, so that's pretty awesome.

So Many Action Figures on Kickstarter Right Now

CthulhuGlyosVia the Kickstarter: Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line!

A bunch of toy people got together to make the finest line 1979 didn't have to offer with 4 figures due around December. $90 (or $110) gets you 4 Kenner/Mego-style 3 3/4-inch action figures including 2 creatures, 2 humans, and a couple of accessories. Even if this doesn't interest you in the slightest, I suggest checking it out for its exceptional graphic design with numerous throwback catalogs and cardbacks. It's also worth pointing out that this is one of at least four 3 3/4-inch action figure lines on Kickstarter right now.

Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line -- Kicktraq Mini

Also fascinating - and cheap, and ending tomorrow - is IAmElemental Action Figures for Girls. 3 3/4-inch super hero figures, basically a single buck with unique accessories, heads, and deco at $10 per shipped. The pricing is certainly right.

IAmElemental Action Figures for Girls -- Kicktraq Mini

And of course, there's Boss Fight Studio's Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Action Figures from a bunch of ex-Hasbro folks making Classic-era Joes, basically. Already funded, and about $30 per figure.

Boss Fight Studio's Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. Action Figures -- Kicktraq Mini

Transformers G1 Dinobots, Ark for SDCC

The set has gold, red, and silver repaints of Grimlock, Snarl, Slug, and Strafe toys with a killer box - a cardboard G1 Ark playset! The packaging itself may be even more exciting than the Age of Extinction toys inside, which are admittedly quite good - Strafe has two clear heads, and vac-metal gold and silver are all over the place.

Also notable, Botcon exclusive Kreons span 20 years of Transformers. Fractyl, Rattrap, G2 Breakdown, and others are available in Pasadena now... theoretically, maybe they're sleeping now.

Transformers Botcon 2014 Round-Up

TransformersArceeHasbro shared some swell official pictures from BotCon for you Transformers fans and let me tell you, they weren't bad. The focus was on Generations for this year and next, plus the remainder of this year's seemingly thin Age of Extinction assortments which will actually include at least one Revenge of the Fallen and one G1 guy. Amazing!

I posted New Pictures from Hasbro Here on my Tumblr. You're going to see them elsewhere too, but if you missed them click that link and scroll down.

Generations (Classic) Leader-class toys of Armada Megatron and a tank version of G1 Megatron were revealed for 2015. They share a basic design.

Generations (Classic) Voyager-class toys of Brainstorm (2014) and Optimus Prime (2015). Due to its unusual construction, Optimus has been speculated to be a combiner torso as the theme for 2015 will involve combiners. A silhouette for Superion was shown at a slide show.

Generations (Classic) Deluxe-class toys of Arcee (new mold) and Chromia (heavily retooled Prime First Edition Arcee mold) are due late in 2014. No 2015 deluxes were shown yet.

Generations (Classic) Legends-class toys of Nemesis Prime and Spinister and Cliffjumper with Suppressor were both shown - these are due in a few months. For 2015, the sidekicks have been dropped and we're seeing Powerglide (new mold), Thundercracker (Starscream), Bombshell (new mold), and Windcharger (Tailgate mold).
