Beast Hunters Deluxe Wave 1 and New Bot Shots 5 Packs Found at US Retail


The hunt is on! Literally! 2005 Board member Twincast has reported finding the first wave of the new Transformers Prime Beast Hunters deluxe figures at US retail. This first wave of deluxe Beast Hunters consists of Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Soundwave and Laserback and was found at a Toys R Us in California. Twincast has also been kind enough to share with us some in hand images of Wheeljack and Laserback. The bios for these two are also included with these pictures, but surprisingly, are featured on the instructions of the toys rather than on the back of the packaging.

Twincast also reports finding two previously unknown Bot Shots 5-packs. The Autobot Polar Assault Team (Optimus, Jetfire, Mirage, Ironhide and Bumblebee) and the Decepticon Stunticons (Motorbreath, Dead end, Dragstrip, Brake Neck and Breakdown). Both sets are repaints from previous Bot Shot release molds, but look fantastic in their new decos.

Check out all of the pics after the break!

    Good luck hunting and happy holidays!

    EDIT: Attached additional pics of the Stunticons! (and the polar Autobots)
    EDIT: Okay, I couldn't resist opening up the packages. And surprise!- major changes to the instruction sheets (first since ??), with a large, monochromatic spread, character shot, and expanded story (!). Images and possible SPOILERS for Lazerback's origin and bio attached in images. Also added a couple early shots - enjoy!
    EDIT: Reviews are up and linked!

    Could we get a good shot of that autobot botshots pack?

    and how the hell did Hasbro manage to lose two of the stunticon's names in one year?

    Well I'll be damned, new Bot Shots. I love that Stunticon set.

    "Motorbreath" is kinda catchy.

    "Hey Motorbreath!" "What's up, Motorbreath?" "Motorbreath, get off that fucking tractor."
