A listing on Toys 'R' Us Hong Kong has gone up for the first (semi-officially revealed) Buzzworthy Bumblebee set under the Rise of the Beasts banner. The two pack features two repacks of figures from the Bumblebee movie toy line, specifically the simplified figures featuring "Igniter" cores that would activate an action feature. The set is priced at $268.50 HKD (about $34.22 USD) and is in stock now.
Interestingly, the product description calls these out as Rise of the Beast inspired figures, which makes sense given the alt-forms of each toy but nothing on the packaging calls out Rise of the Beasts. While not featuring brand new sculpts or characters, it is cool to see that we're starting to edge towards the time frame when Rise of the Beasts will hit toy store shelves.
Thanks to Phil Z. for the heads up on this. Check out the pics and description below:
