Toy News: T-Wrecks Found at US Retail

Daily checks of the Target app for T-Wrecks have paid off!  This morning the app told me the Target in Menlo Park, NJ had four in stock so I raced over.  At first I was worried because he wasn't on shelf, but it turns out they had not put him out yet.  A very kind employee helped me snag one from the back - so he's out there folks!  You can check his listing on Target's web site to order him online or see if he's available near you.  Here's the product info if you're hunting:

Toy News: "Buzzworthy Bumblebee" Crash Combiners Found at Retail

After seeing reports of the Buzzworthy Bumblebee Worlds Collide 4-Pack being found at retail yesterday, I headed out to my two local Targets this morning (Menlo Park, NJ and Linden, NJ) to see if I would have any luck.  While I did not find the 4-Pack, I did find "Origins Bumblebee" and the two sets of the Robots in Disguise Crash Combiner redecos featuring Bumblebee, Grimlock and Optimus Prime!  It appears the Grimlock and Optimus Prime set may be short packed as I saw multiple Bumblebee/Grimlock sets but only

Toy News: Official Images of "Cyberverse" Deluxe Class Cheetor

Cyberverse has not been a major force on toy store shelves in about a year now, but there are still new toys to come from the toy line a year after its final episode aired (a follow up movie is coming out at some point online however).   One surprise reveal comes thanks to a Walmart listing for Deluxe Class Cheetor!  The figure represents a bit of a departure from his animated appearance in the Cyberverse cartoon and I get some minor Beast Machines vibes from the swords.  Other tha

Toy News: "Robots in Disguise" Combiner Force Ultra Bee Returns to Retail?

In 2017 Hasbro released a sub-line of figures for its Robots in Disguise 2015 line called Combiner Force.  The idea was a focus on the Combiner gimmick with some characters combining as pairs while others performed more traditional combinations made up of four characters.  One of these figures is "Ultra Bee", who was the combination of Bumblebee, Grimlock, Sideswipe and Strongarm.  These figures came and went quite some time ago, which is why my discovery today confounded me.  Upon visiting the Walmart store in Linden, NJ I came across this:

Toy News: "Buzzworthy Bumblebee" Origin Bumblebee Found at Retail

The Buzzworthy Bumblebee line continues to surprise fans.  A few weeks ago In Demand Toys revealed Buzzworthy Bumblebee "Origin Bumblebee", representing the character as he appeared on Cybertron in G1 complete with his "flying saucer" style vehicle form.  Now the figure has begun to hit stores.  A report out of The Allspark Facebook Page shows the figure on shelf at a Target in Dallas, TX (I am not using the image here as I do not have the permission of the original poster).   For intrepid toy hunters who
