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

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

With the final issue of Transformers vs GI Joe out in shops this week (and our review of that issue can be found right here), Newsarama spent some time chatting with the book's main writer, artist, colorist, and as we've liked to joke, probably bookbinder and papermaker as well, Tom Scioli. It's a whopper of an interview touching on a great deal of subjects spinning out of the initial subject of issue #13 of Transformers vs GI Joe. We've included some brief excerpts, so click through to read that and find a link to the original article!
It took me a while to develop trust with IDW's Transformers titles. After all, Transformers hadn't had the most consistent run of quality in its first six or so years. But it turned out that the splitting of the Transformers ongoing in to two new books at the start of 2012 resulted in not only two titles that brought a strong game to their debuts, but were able to maintain that level of quality month after month. They made me a fan of the Transformers comics. And now, more than four years later, I fear this era is about to see its end.
Unique Toys and their alter ego DX9 are developing a solid reputation for getting triplechanging transforming characters right for the most part. While they don’t always nail all modes, chances are you’ll get a very high quality, enjoyable figure which displays beautifully in at least 2 modes out of 3. Their Provider, Chigurh and Gewalt are all superb figures that we have reviewed here and thoroughly enjoyed. Now they’ve taken a shot at one of the heroic variety, with Y-03 Sworder representing the 1986 triplechanger hero whose orange, yellow and black colours have become his identity.
DX9 have developed a reputation for producing very good-looking, high quality and enjoyable Masterpiece-scale transforming figures that bring them more fans with every subsequent release. Having grabbed attention with their Invisible car robot figure as first to market at MP scale, they followed it up with the brilliant Chigurh, exceptional Carry and popular Tyrant.
For some time now I’ve wanted to introduce more diversity into our collector interviews, but of course that depends on the responses we get, and seeing the many high end vintage collections in our features so far can deter some from contributing. Not so Marian Hilditch. It’s with great pleasure that this month we feature someone whose path into the hobby does not follow the oft-described vintage route.
