We heard via a listing in the Toys R Us computer system a little while ago that a “Decepticon Showdown” set was in the works. Hasbro have now revealed the set in their display at San Diego Comic Con 2016!
The set – more fully known as “Decepticon Island Showdown” – recreates the scene from the Robots in Disguise second season finale where Bumblebee and Steeljaw faced off in their final duel. The set, priced at $39.99, includes the Warrior class Bumblebee and Steeljaw figures and a lot of accessories – in addition to both figure’s weapons, the set includes two Decepticon Hunter swords, Bumblebee’s Decepticon Hunter longstaff, an axe, and a smaller staff weapon (possibly meant as an inert Decepticon Hunter). Rounding off the package is the biggest accessory coming with the set – a stasis chamber big enough to fit a Warrior class Decepticon.
It’s a cool set which only seems to be marred by the fact the Bumblebee and Steeljaw are the same toys that were on shelves last year – check out pics of the set after the break.
