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

Looked ALL damn day and nothing. I did get Mighty Muggs Grimlock for $8 (everythings on sale at Target) and Seth MacFarlanes Cavalcade of Comedy DVD (with "Sex With Optimus Prime" short) but no ROTF anywhere

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

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

We reported about a week ago on the possibility of a merger between Hasbro and Mattel, initiated by Hasbro themselves. We have word via Reuters that this effort did not proceed very far, and as of the current time the dealings are not moving forward. Reuters reports via confidential sources that part of the failure to deal at this time was due to what Mattel indicated was an "undervaluing" of the company by Hasbro. We don't expect much more to develop on this anytime soon, but as this wasn't the first time Hasbro has put out feelers, we're also sure it won't be the last. Find a link to the report in the full article below!
I'm ExVee; my name is Chris. If you read Gizmodo, or know people that do, you probably heard about a photo of a small piece of deco work on the brand new Power of The Primes Jazz, which says in a Cybertronic font "MAGA". It's a font whose development is credited to longtime super-fan Jim Sorenson, and which has been used on Transformers toys here and there for a while now. One notable use was on Titans Return Seaspray where it was used to inscribe the name Alana inside the forearms, referencing Seaspray's love interest from an episode of the G1 cartoon. What you may not know is, I'm the one who took that original photo, with only the best of intentions. But, we all know where that can lead you. Keep reading...
Sure, the title reads like perfect clickbait, but odds are you will find yourself in stunned disbelief when you hear the last of this year's nominees. Last year, Transformers were nominated for entry to the Toy Hall of Fame. They didn't make it, losing out, in part, to the swing. Transformers was up for a spot again this year, but sadly didn't make the final cut. Two of the inductees that beat them were the simple wiffle ball, and the classic board game Clue. And we can't begrudge either of those, else Col. Mustard might do us in with a candlestick in the library. But what was the third inductee? Oh, keep reading...
A new report on CNN Money is bringing attention to the ripples that the bankruptcy filing of Toys R Us is likely to make in the toy industry. Hasbro's quarterly earnings call recently noted a healthy growth for the company above expectations in the third quarter. But the fourth quarter, reliant on the all important shopping holidays, is looking to be less fruitful. During the lead up to the bankruptcy decision, Hasbro made clear their intent to maintain normal business relations with Toys R Us, indicating how much value they still carry as a retail partner. Keep reading to find the link back to the original article!
We're excited to launch a new feature this week, called "Why, Transformers?" - or "WhyTF?" for catchier branding purposes. This new video series features Eric Crownover (aka EricCrowbar) joining Chris (aka ExVee) to discuss a question each week around a topic of interest. For the first episode, Chris and Eric talk about why we believe there were once going to be as many as four Titans Return box sets, and why we ultimately only got two - even though those two that came out look to have performed significantly better than the Combiner Wars sets. Click through to watch the episode right now!
