Last week, we gave you a news regarding the distribution of Transformers Authentics toyline in the United States. However, the very first retail sighting comes from Manila, Philippines.
The first “Wave” of Transformers Authentics line featuring Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream are now available at Toy Kingdom Festival Mall in Alabang and Robinson’s Place Ermita for Philippine Peso 299.75 (approx. US $6) each.
Based on our understanding, the four basic figures featured on this news post belongs to the Alpha Assortment and a secondary Bravo Assortment is also on its way, which may or may not include a Grimlock figure. This budget line is also a part of the Generations branding.
The new figures are based on Hasbro’s Evergreen designs and the same designs are rumored to be featured on the upcoming Transformers: Cyberverse animated series albeit in a more cartoonish styling.
We thank Franz Echeverria of Facebook group Cybertron Philippines and our 2005 boards members maku098, vproject and Ikkad for bringing us this sighting.
