We’ve got another new Transformers sighting for you. Our own Servo spotted the Shatter, from the next series of Bumblebee Movie Energon Igniters. This version of Shatter is a part of the Power series, and shares the assortment with Blitzwing and Optimus Prime – so presumably both of these are also now out in the wild.
Shatter was sighted hanging on pegs in a Walmart in Bloomington, Minnesota. Happy hunting, one and all!
The Siege has begun! Transformers Siege is starting to hit US retail, with Deluxe and Voyager Wave 1 following hot on the heels of the recent sighting of the Battle Masters.
TFW2005 member Hurleychris07 spotted the six new toys in a Target in Virginia. Deluxe Wave 1 sports new versions of Hound and Sideswipe, together with Weaponizer Deluxe Cog and the much-demanded Decepticon Skytread / Flywheels. Voyager Wave 1 gives us new versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron. Both assortments have some of the coolest looking and most articulated Transformers from recent memory.
This is awesome news and we wish everyone happy hunting. There’s only one criticism we could level – where’s our US mass retail sighting of Power of the Primes Leader Optimal Optimus?
