Yet another toy rumor has just surfaced! TFW2005 member DecepticusPrime has reported finding listings for both some previously-rumored and also previously-unknown figures in Walmart's systems.
The brand new listings are for:
And as for listings we'd already heard of before:
• Deluxe Protectobots
It's currently unknown to us what these are - fans have been speculating that Mirage could be retooled from Deluxe Drag Strip, so is it possible these are retools of the already-existing Transformers: Generations Combiner Wars Deluxe limbs, to further fill out the Autobot ranks?
We'll just have to wait and see - but for now, you can check it out and discuss after the jump!Read Replies (0)

Hisashi Yuki has been active on his Twitter account, and has shared a couple of new images. One of the new shots shows the trio of female Autobots - Windblade, Chromia and Arcee
- in their decos for the Japanese Transformers Legends line. They all arrive at Japanese retail in February.
There is also a new image of the Transformers Legends Sky-Byte
, showing the toy both in box and also loose in robot mode. Notably this Japanese release of Generations Sky-Byte is inheriting his US dub name of Sky-Byte, although the Japanese text still says Gelshark, so he's got the best of both worlds name-wise. He's arriving in Japan later this month.Read Replies (0)

The next DeNA Transformers: Legends event is now live.The Lazy Sue, piloted by DIRK MANUS, is attacked by HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT. Just as his craft is about to take heavy damage, LIGHTSPEED, SCATTERSHOT, and AFTERBURNER arrive and drive the DECEPTICONS off.
Unbeknownst to the Technobots, DIRK MANUS is actually working with the Quintessons, who sent the Terrorcons to steal the Recreator from him before he could deliver it. With his deal with the Quintessons still a secret, DIRK MANUS convinces the Technobots to accompany him to deliver his package to his client.
Despite their setback, HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT are ordered to once again assault the Lazy Sue and take the Recreator from the human and his AUTOBOT companions. But the Technobots are wary from the last attack, and prepare themselves for potential attack.
Will HUN-GURRR and CUTTHROAT destroy the Technobots and steal the Recreator? Can LIGHTSPEED and the Technobots keep the Lazy Sue safe? How much money will DIRK MANUS make off this deal? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends: “Money Is Everything!”Read Replies (0)
