Age of Extinction Power Battlers High Octane Bumblebee Also Purchased at Ross
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '15 at 10:46 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Well folks, it looks like the long-awaited Age of Extinction Power Battlers Wave 4 is finally making it to Ross in its entirety. We reported yesterday that the Vehicon from the assortment had been found in at least one Ross store, and acting on that tip, TFW2005 member Optimus Clyde found a couple of High Octane Bumblebee from the Power Battlers series at two different Ross stores in Dallas, TX. He also reports a further sighting of the Vehicon.

At this point, given the way the waves were worked for these toys, it seems most probable that the third member of AoE Power Battlers Wave 4, Junkheap the garbage truck Decepticon, is also out in the wild.

Happy hunting, one and all!

Robots in Disguise Legion Wave 5 Revealed
Posted by News Fetcher on June 02 '15 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Our sponsors Big Bad Toy Store have added some more new product listings - including a heretofore unseen Robots in Disguise Legion class Wave 5! Legion Wave 5 has two new toys, both expected to be repaints of existing toys - the first is Patrol Strongarm, almost certainly a redeco of the initial Legion class Strongarm. The second is Ultra Magnus, potentially a Legion Optimus Prime redeco. We've probably seen both of these toys previously in the Robots in Disguise app, and it is looking increasingly likely that other future releases were also teased in the app - check out my fellow newsie SilverOptimus' writeups for some possible insight.

Preorder links, for those so inclined:

Big Bad Toy Store
Robots in Disguise Legion Wave 5 - Patrol Strongarm and Ultra Magnus
Robots in Disguise Legion Wave 4 - Night Ops Bumblebee and Alpine Strike Sideswipe
Robots in Disguise Warrior Wave 4 - Night Ops Bumblebee and Gold Armor Grimlock

Robot Kingdom

Botcon 2015 Schedule
Posted by News Fetcher on June 01 '15 at 10:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
The schedule for Botcon 2015 has now been made available. For those attending (and those following our coverage at home) you might want to take a look at this.

The key panels for news are on Saturday. Saturday 20 June from Noon-12:50 is the ubiquitous Hasbro Product Preview panel (aka, new shinies for you to put money aside for!). That's followed the same day at 3:00-3:50 with the Transformers Collectors’ Club Roundtable, where we just might see some 2016 fan club exclusives! Notably, neither IDW for Transformers comics or Hasbro Studios for the cartoons are represented, so guess for those, we're waiting for SDCC.

There's also plenty more panels for those attending to check out. There's a "Behind the characters" session with Derrick Wyatt on the Friday, along with a "Birth of Transformers" panel, where we're hoping Kojin Ono might share some of his experience in creating the earliest toys that would become Transformers. Saturday brings us a G1 retrospective panel and a panel about the Japanese perspective, along with a panel about the online Transformers Fandom. Sunday has a panel about the art of Transformers, along with a script reading titled "The Return of Blurr", featuring the talents of Susan Blu,
John Moschitta, Frank Todaro & friends.

It's all in all a nice and varied convention panel selection, with more than just toys to look forward to. We hope all who are attending take the time to embrace the opportunity offered by these panels - and share their thoughts and feedback on our 2005 boards!

Botcon 2015 is taking place in the Pheasant Run resort, in St. Charles, Illinois, over the weekend of 19-21 June. To find out more and pre-register, head on over to Botcon.com.

Thanks to TFW2005 boards member Alterator for reporting a purchase of an Age of Extinction Power Battlers Vehicon! This retail find, a first for US stores, was found at a local Ross in Central Florida for the grand total of $5.99.

At least one other sighting was reported on a Transformers Facebook group, Transformers Addicts. We're not sure if this is the same sighting or a different one, but either way we hope those that are looking for this Vehicon get their hands on one.

The Maketoys news continues as they've also updated their website with color images of Axle, their version of Groove! This figure which will come with the rest of the Protectobots in their "Guardia" combiner set. Scheduled release date on Maketoys' website is July, but take that with a grain of salt at the moment. The new pictures show Axle in various poses showing off his poseability and also include one shot of his motorcycle mode. It's extremely impressive looking so far.
