A quick public service announcement, for those of you in need of replacement darts for a Starscream Barrel Roll Blaster or Optimus Prime Big Rig Blaster.  While I wasn't looking, my 4 and 1 year olds played tug of war with the darts.  Each time, it was the dart which lost.  So I was glad to find out I did not have to re-purchase the entire product again for the collection.  Individual dart packs, as well as other Transformers replecement parts, can be ordered directly from  Hasbro Consumer Affairs: 800-327-8264.  They are available in increments of 6 for $5, 20 for $8 or 30 for $10.

Also various reports have come in across the net that the newest wave of Transformers Movie deluxe toys, including the 2008 Camaro Bumblebee are starting to hit the toy shelves.  Have you found them?  Please keep your sightings coming!

I found out on that deluxe Dreadwing, Arcee, and 2008 Bumblebee are out in Canada. They should be out in the United States in August.

What about the G1 decos, recon barricade, and leader brawl? Will they be coming out the 14th as well?

Hey Optimusp13, the answer is no. They are to be out in October, sorry. I'm angry about it too.

Its the large nerf darts. Not the micro ones.

At hasbrotoyshop or even Target I saw.

Same ones. Standard darts.

I think bigbadtoystore may be getting leader brawl. I got a news letter saying that he'll be getting in 5 new deluxes, 4 new voyagers and 1 new leader.

Yeah they did a great job on these movie toys for the most part. It's going to be hard to get a 2008 Bumblebee. There are only two per case.

Jetfire, the Transformers Collectors Club has the Voyager Megatron and Optimus. The Voyagers are okay, but I definitely like the leader versions better. The voyager Megatron has the ice look.

Why did they make a leader Brawl? I'm not complaining, I'll buy it. I suppose the size has something to do with his original name being Devastator.

I see there is more real gear coming out. Did anybody hear when the game controller and watch are coming out? A repaint of Booster as an Autobot, Nightbeat. I'm not buying any repaints unless certain ones really impress me. I might get Nightbeat just because I like real gear and animal robot modes. I still don't like Armada Laserbeak. I don't really care about the ones that don't have a robot mode of some sort.

Does anyone know anything about the final battle Jazz? from what I can se on the picture on this site, it comes in the package in robot mode and looks like it has some different weapons. There was also a rumor a long time ago about more protoforms coming out does anyone know about this? I doubt it's true, I see a lot of Prime and Starscream on the shelves. I don't think places can give these away.

kinda off the subject but walmart has a listing for an ultra magnus figure with an $89.96 price tag.This looks alot like an masterpiece with trailer but cannot tell for sure.The figure weighs six pounds heavy for a g1 reissue here is the link check it out. If someone knows anything about this figure let me know. Been doing some research and it seems it could be overstock of reissue magnus but no one seems to know for sure hmmm..... if this is somehow masterpiece holy shit I want it. s

Trax, thats really weird about that magnus listing. the photo is obviously a stock pic. i went ahead and weighed my gi magnus with trailer and he was under 2 pounds. my masterpiece prime was is just under 3 pounds. hmmmm, very weird in deed

I think as happened with Bonecrusher in TRU some Arcee's have shipped early and have been out for a while already regardless of when they are officially supposed to be out - the Frenzy and Blackout FAB were not supposed to be out yet either and they've been sighted too.
Trax said,  - 2007-07-13 08:36:41
I am a little skeptical that this is a masterpiece magnus,but I can only hope that it is.First the reissue magnus was a TRU exclusive so why would wal-mart have any.Second the weight is on par with a masterpiece add the trailer and packaging and its about six pounds.Third the price is way over the top for a reissue fiqure,if I remember correctly I paid only $40 for my reissue magnus .All these points aside I think we would have heard something from hasbro as a release of this stature would surely be advertised.Im not sure what the deal is I guess we will just have to wait and see.Maybe someone will read these posts that knows a little more.

The Ultra Magnus in question is in fact a G1 reissue with shortened smokestacks and long missiles. The price seems to suggest that we can expect some die-cast parts, but it still seems too expensive.
As for Bumblebee sightings, are you kidding me? I still can't find Megatron! Not one store in my area has it. Hasbro FAILS AGAIN at properly distributing figures. GAAA! Did anyone find ANY Leader class Megatrons or am I just the most unlucky trans-fan ever?
