Our very own forums member, Lore Keeper has shared a Toy Review for the Transformers: Studio Series Voyager Class Thundercracker that's finally coming our way. Read on to see the video review below.
Toys R Us shutting its doors in the US has led to concerns about the release outlets for some products, among them Movie Masterpiece as the first two entries in the current series were specifically exclusives there. Barricade seemed to have a spot of bad luck with its the chain shutting down before the toy had a chance to ever reach shelves. Today we've found out that Amazon has a listing for "Transformers Barricade Action Figure" priced at $79.99, which looks to be giving Barricade a way out after all. Click through for more info!
BBTS has just let us know they now have this elisive figure up for Pre-Order. This Studio Series 09 Voyager Class Dark of the Moon Thundercracker figure converts from robot to jet mode in 35 steps and comes with 1 accessory. Remove the included backdrop to showcase the Thundercracker figure in the Chicago Aerial Offensive scene. Priced at $34.99 USD - Pre-Order Now
The ability to procure Studio Series Thundercracker has been a subject of concern, as Toys R Us teeters on the edge of its complete shutdown in the US, including termination of its online storefront that would otherwise have potentially served collectors without immediate local access to a retail location. However, good news was delivered today, as Entertainment Earth has posted a listing for Thundercracker at the SRP of $29.99, and expected for arrival in July. As of the time of writing, Thundercracker has been available on shelves despite liquidation being in progress, but this should offer a safety net for anyone still having trouble getting hold of the toy.

, we have word of a pair of store inventory listings for a new pair of Studio Series Voyagers. Another Optimus Prime - seemingly distinct from the Voyager currently available in Wave 1 - is on the way somewhere in the near future. And likely to be joining it is a brand new entry in the series, a Voyager class Bonecrusher. Rumors had circulated about the existence of Bonecrusher recently, and this seems to stand in support of their accuracy. No images as yet, but you can keep reading to see the transcribed inventory listings.
Thanks to Planet Iacon's group page. We have new looks at the TakaraTomy Studio series Optimus Prime and Starscream in the packages. Get a look at the Japanese editions of these figures now for the full preview of the Japanese editions, below.
The sale date for Studio Series toys looks to have fallen earlier than we thought - possibly 4/2 rather than 4/20 - and retailers are properly stocking the new assortments now. Latest on that score is Walmart, where I can personally report a sighting in the middle Tennessee area, west of Nashville. On hand were the full assortment of both wave 1 Deluxes and Voyagers. Leaders had not been stocked yet. Take note, though the photos below show the toys stocked in existing spaces, a quick price scan reveals Walmart is following along with the suggested retail prices, so about $20 for Deluxes and $30 for Voyagers - no undercutting like we saw with The Last Knight. Happy hunting, movie collectors!
The Transformers Actor, Tyrese Gibson tells PEOPLE magazine, "little kids always ask him if he really has several giant Transformers robots at his Georgia mansion." The rumors end here as Tyreese himself gives up the tour of this lavish mansion. That now confirms, it is home to at least two massive Transformers Autobot statues of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, with his very own poolside bungalow.
Universal Studios Japan will feature a New Night Parade that will open on May 17, 2018. The parade features and reproduces the world of the Transformers, Harry Potter, Minions, and Jurassic World using 15 enormous floats each over 8 meters tall and weighing about 25 tons, totaling a length of about 520 meters with projection mapping, set to immersive music experience in a 360 degree movie environment.
Amazon has updates on a couple of upcoming products for us today. We've finally got good copies of the stock photography for Studio Series Voyager Wave 2, consisting of Megatron as he appeared in Revenge of The Fallen
, and Brawl, who only appeared in the first movie. Notably it's our first look at the vehicle mode photo for Brawl, from which we can deduce that he may have an affinity for guns. And for both toys this is our first chance at these stock photos without Weibo-leaker watermarks attached - not to mention higher overall quality. Click through to take a look!
New up on Hasbro's Youtube channel is a 15 second TV spot for the Studio Series lineup. The short ad focused less on the toys themselves, instead pushing the diorama background elements and the idea of recapturing moments from the movies. Representatives from each price point made appearances even if not really called out. This release coincides with Hasbro Toy Shop stocking the remainder of wave 1 this afternoon, including some restocks of the Deluxe figures. However as of time of writing, Voyagers and Leaders were all sold through. Click through to watch the video clip!
We've got some in hand photos of Studio Series Jazz from a Weibo post today. Jazz is part of Deluxe wave 2, shipping alongside a new Lockdown. We haven't seen a whole lot from this toy so far since it's still theoretically a little ways off, so these three new photos are shining a light on certain details of the overall design. It turns out Studio Series Jazz is pretty traditionally Jazz, in that it carries a large portion of the roof panels of the car mode on the back. While some may not look at that as ideal disposition of alt mode elements, the robot mode otherwise looks pretty good. You can check it out for yourself below.
