Target's Fall Geek-Out Event started last week with Batman related items, now this week it's time for some new Transformers! First is the previously revealed Road Rage, a redeco and retool of Kingdom Tracks. The second figure revealed this morning is Draculus! Rumored back in early summer, Draculus is the next Collaborative figure featuring a crossover between the classic Dracula monster and Transformers.
Back in July, Hasbro revealed the Pulsecon exclusive "Decepticons Forever Ravage" set that will be available in November 2021. Now thanks to the folks at Dengeki Hobby has posted additional images of this set, with a focus on the two figures included. This gives us a good look at both the Beast Wars Ravage and the G1 reissue Ravage including their deco and weapons.
Takara Tomy Mall has posted its listing for Kingdom Red Alert, representing the character with his "Earth Mode". This figure was briefly available on Hasbro Pulse but sold out quickly and has already shipped. The wider release of the figure is supposed to come out at Walgreens stores in the United States, but there have not yet been any mass sightings reported.
Rumors have swirled for months that Target would be carrying another Transformers exclusive following the recent release of T-Wrecks. Following the theme of "red" characters being released as Target exclusives, the next one will be Road Rage! Target has posted its listing for the figure but it is not yet available for pre-order.
"Transmutate" was one of the best episodes of Beast Wars, offering a dramatic story that made a point about accepting others and the horrors of war. Now the Transformers character who was the focus of that episode has been released as a Fossilizer figure in the Generations Selects line! Check out my review and gallery of Transformers Selects Transmutate!
Over the past few months Hasbro Pulse has been carrying limited quantities of store exclusives such as Walmart's Netflix figures. Their most recent "shared" exclusive is Walgreens exclusive Red Alert! There was no previous official announcement for this figure but leaks have indicated this would be coming for months now.
Hasbro Pulse held a Fan First Friday event today. During this live stream, three new Studio Series 1986 figures were revealed: Perceptor, Starscream and Sweep! Perceptor is an all new figure while Starscream is a redeco of the Earthrise Starscream figure with "Coronation" gear including a cape and throne (bumping him up to Leader Class). Sweep is of course, a redeco of Scourge. You can watch the stream and check out official product descriptions and images below. I have also linked to the BigBadToyStore and Entertainment Earth pages for those items.
