Transformer Toy Sightings

Our thanks go to Pete Brown and Shadowdancer for the following Transformers toy sighting reports.

Shadowdancer reports that he has "just been to Toys R Us and they have in stock Generations Scourge, Sergent Kup, Cliffjumper and Soundwave. I also noticed small 4 figure pack Legends (DOTM) and the massive Sentinal prime, Bumblebee and Prime as of yet no Shockwaves. Also at Toymasters in Letchworth they had a few RTS Windcharger at £7.99 i got two of them."

Pete Brown, on the other hand, has sent in some Tesco sightings and discounted figures.  "My local tesco at Tower Park, Poole is selling all Dark of the Moon deluxes for £8.49 and the Legends size cyber-verse toys for £2.99 each."

Toycollectors.com.au have posted the first image of the Hasbro release of Masterpiece Rodimus Prime. The toy comes packaged in robot mode, is recoloured and comes with an exclusive Targetmaster figure.  The trailer for the toy is not shown, which is interesting considering that he his marked up as Rodimus Prime and not Hot Rod.  The image also confirms what was long expected, that the toy will be a Toys R Us exclusive.

The Toys R Us website is currently offering a Buy One Get One Half Price offer on all Transformers: Dark of the Moon items.  If you are a fan of DotM or, like us, have not bothered to get anything thus far, this offer may be the best time to start.

I've corrected the offer as I had put it down as Buy One Get One Free.  Let this be a lesson, don't type news stories whilst working on two projects and training, you'll loose track :p

Thanks to Duckstar we can reveal that Toys R Us will be stocking the Transformers Dark of the Moon figures from next Monday, the 16th of May 2011.  Here is what he has said.

I was wondering if the UK release date was the same as the US over here. I emailed Toys R Us to see when they would be out. This is what I was emailed back:

Dear Mr Hughes, Thank you for your recent e-mail. I can confirm that the release date for the range in the UK is also 16/05/11.

I hope that this is of help to you.

Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

FullMetalHero.com are reporting an interesting rumour that a UK exclusive Transformers Dark of the Moon Leadfoot figure may be coming later in the year.  According to Red Leader, "a well known UK high street wholesaler on Thursday indicate that the UK may be getting a Leadfoot figure in a limited capacity, no figure class details were revealed but the order quantity must be 5000 for the exclusivity and it may possibly be stocked by a high street chain well known for serving the UK with sci fi products, it is still an open offer so anyone can still bite. Go on TRU, you know you want to!"

This would certainly be an interesting and we will let you know if we hear any more

Toys R Us is celebrating its 25th annniversary within the UK this year and as a part of the celebration they have compiled a list of the Top Selling toys in Toys R Us stores for the last 25 years starting with Optimus Prime back in 1985.

Mike Coogan, Toys R Us marketing director, commented: "While technology is now more popular than ever before with children, customers who have been with us for the full 25 years will start to recognise some toys which are making a comeback.
