The last of three known Team Combiner sets for the Robots in Disguise line has hit brick and mortar retail. Galvatronus, comprised of Cyclonus, Riotgear, Skyjack, Cyberwarp, and Treadshock was spotted at Toys R Us in Fort Wayne, IN by Rookbartley
. Robots in Disguise is expected to be ending with the wrap up of the Combiner Force imprint, though there are still a few toys that have yet to reach retail, including two Crash Combiners. Whether any or all of these remaining products ever see distribution in the US is a big question mark right now. Keep reading to see a photo of Galvatronus on shelf!
We've got a sighting of the presumed "Cyberverse" Neo-G1 character models! HeyMickey
, of Superhero Time
and That One Episode of Star Trek
fame, has spotted the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Go-Karts sporting the new character designs at a Tennessee Walmart. This is the third or fourth mass-market item to use these models now... and curiously, none of them say "Cyberverse" on the package. Will "Cyberverse" just be a distinguishing title for the show, with this being the first line to simply be called "Transformers" in 30 years? We'll find out at HasCon, hopefully, but for now keep reading to see the images!
Some representatives from the next wave of RID Combiner Force have made a first appearance in the UK. Legion Class Cyclonus and Heatseeker turned up, making possibly a first-anywhere appearance, but definitely first outside of the usual parts of Asia that see things hit shops pretty early. There was no indication of any other new figures with this pair, which were reported found at a Morrison's in Warrington by jon trooper
. There's a photo showing the toys in shelf, which you can find below!
It looks like another round of Robots in Disguise product is filtering out to the usual suspects of discount retail in the US. Tonight I personally spotted the Power Surge electronic figures for Sideswipe and Bumblebee at a Ross store, priced at $12.99 each. This seems to be the first sign of 2016 RID product getting cleared out, and more may be on the way behind it. Meanwhile, if you've been looking for a deal to add these figures - or just their Mini-Cons - to your collection, it might be time to start hitting your local closeout stores. Photo proof of the sighting can be found below!
