Via reddit, we have a first in-store sighting of the complete first wave of Studio Series product, comprising the Deluxe, Voyager, and now Leader classes. The find is from Auckland, New Zealand, and the original poster confirms that both Grimlock and Blackout were present at the store, marking their first appearance at standard retail. Their debut in the US is a bit of a question mark as we wait for a street date to come and go, but with Toys R Us on the way out, it's unclear if they may jump the line and go ahead and push whatever inventory is on hand while they have the chance.

Via various reports at 2005,
we now know that the Studio Series
Deluxe and Voyager class figures are showing up a bit early! With a street date of 4/20, Washington State Fred Meyer Stores and Kansas Dillons stores are putting the figures out well over a month ahead of time... but given the markup at both locations, you'll be paying for the privilege if you can find them. Keep reading for photographic proof!
has posted some new images of their MetalFigs
4" Transformers: The Last Knight
figures to Facebook! These SD-style Optimus Prime and Bumblebee figures are both due to hit retail next month and, as the name would suggest, are made of diecast metal. That's got to be a pretty weighty set of figures! Keep reading to see images.
