When Will Revenge of the Fallen Toys Actually Come Out? Nobody Seems To Know
bwbm - Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Despite the numerous embargo-breaking that's been going on in Targets and Wal-Mart stores nationwide, it seems as if we are all having some issues trying to find out when these Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen figures will be officially released. We have heard from multiple sources some conflicting dates, both mainly circulating around May 30th and May 31st.

Regardless of when the toys are coming out, BotCon 2009 attendees will be able to purchase these figures starting on Thursday night of the convention, May 28, 2009.

The press release from Hasbro, Inc. announces that the figures will be available to the fans two days ahead of the official release date. We're not sure if the press release counts Thursday as one day, or if the two days are Friday and Saturday.

I'm raising this because we received an email today from a TFormers.com visitor, which claims that an email he received from Hasbro states that the Revenge line will hit stores on Sunday, May 31, 2009, and expressed frustration.

This date has been consistent with what Wal-Mart has been telling us officially. However, an internal Wal-Mart memo lists that the spring modular update for Revenge of the Fallen will occur on May 29th, a full two days before their release date. That seems a little odd to leave the product out on the shelves for two days.

We'll totally ignore the fact that some stores have already done that update.

A recent Toyfare article spotlighting the toys reports that the toyline will hit the stores on May 30th.

Also, Ender reports that Toys R Us will release the line on May 30th.

When will it actually come out? Well, if you're a hardcore enough fan that cannot wait for this line, I suppose it's not that big of a deal to check twice. Then again, you could always just wait for the 31st and then go to your local store and knock little children out of the way for your fix.

If you do decide to go on the 30th, though, please let us know (and take your camera or something) if you find anything and can actually buy it.

Thats the most fraked up thing is the deal with the preview toys...I mean a solid official release 2 weeks before everything else would have been nice you know? Last year we had a month before the other toys were in wide release. Total bummer.

Went looking for Preview Soundwave today, all pumped up to find him, and nothing! I did find the ROTF Robot Heroes, tho, all of them except the Bumblebee/Long Haul set. I bought the Prime/Blackout and Megatron/Skids sets. I'm still torn about what to get first. I really can't spend... read more

Searching for figs when you know they are out doesn't feel like a waste of time & gas. THIS crap feels like it alright

Well, virtually nothing here...I did see Legends figures at one store, but otherwise...tons of re-stocked Animated! Boy, Hasbro's communication with all their retailers stinks...

the funny thing is, I'm more upset about scouts costing $9.88. 3 months ago, we could get deluxes for that price! Guess we're forced to go onto ebay and purchase those stolen chinese toys for about $6 a pop, after those crazy international shipping costs

One of the dangers of becoming very involved in a hobby or pastime, for those who invest in it more than just casually and dedicate a lot of their free (or not!) time to such a pursuit, is burnout. The source of such feelings can vary from financial constraints to over-indulgence, or from letting lines of reality become blurred. Someone who collects, discusses, participates and enjoys Transformers is every bit as susceptible to these feelings as a stamp collector or car enthusiast.
A video clip has been going around Facebook today, and despite what the April 1st date here might lead you to think, this one isn't a silly prank. The video is a demonstration of what the builder called "The Transformer", a remote control car that turns in to a walking, moving robot all under its own power. The video demonstrates all of these functions, plus gives a general overview. Sound familiar? This video is from March 2015, and a few weeks after this was posted, we reported on Grant Imahara tweeting about a robot of the same design at the RoboGames. We have the new clip embedded below, so go take a look!
I’ve often said that simply buying, amassing and displaying toys is not enough to sustain my interest and passion for Transformers as a hobby. I’ve spent many years researching variants, writing articles, photographing toys and trying to unearth unknown facets of the global Transformers and pre-Transformers history since joining the community.
Imagine a relatively complete collection of Generation 1 Transformers from about 1984 to 1988. An impressive sight and a wonderful achievement. Now imagine that same collection in the form of prototypes, test shots, first shots, packaging samples, hand-painted mock-ups and pre-release box/catalogue/Toyfair photo subjects.
I have already written articles on the importance of discipline, occasional sacrifice and priorities in Transformers collecting on this blog, but I feel things have changed enough recently to warrant a second look at how I collect. Before it was a case of maybe choosing the toy lines and styles I liked, collecting those and cutting back on impulse or peripheral, tangential toy purchases. Now, it is becoming hard to even collect all the moulds – never mind repaints – of the same line. So, it’s time to focus.
