Additional Looks at Transformers 3 Dark of the Moon Deluxe Armor Topspin

Additional images of the Transformers Dark of the Moon Deluxe Armor Topspin have popped up on the web, an extension of the initial batch of images that we saw last week.

The images give additional looks at the robot mode of the figure.


The figure is a repainted version of Deluxe Topspin but the figure also got a Kobalt Tools endorsement to make up for the lack of major Lowe's logo absent on the hood with the new armor attachments.

Kobalt is a subsidiary of Lowe's.


Take a look at additional shots in the gallery.

The Lowe's hood endorsement on the original figure (bottom) has been replaced by a piece of armor.

Walmart sounds like a corporate bully. :( Hasbro should grow a spine and tell Walmart to go shove it and just release the toys they want. Walmart doesn't even exist here, so it's even more frustrating watching Hasbro kowtow to a retailer whom I'll never shop from. :(

Im just not a fan of that shade of grayish white.

I would have turned down the TFCC Seacons also, they are horrible. after that horrible paint job. Sure Walmart can demand an exclusive, but as far as what Hasbro makes that is different. Walmart has no say in the designs or characters. That is all Hasbro, also even if Walmart turns down an already made exclusive, Hasbro can turn around and ship it off to another retailer. And I'm sure after Target said no. they went with the OTFCC. Someone who couldn't say no

Walmart knows that Hasbro is a big boy and they can't toss Hasbro around, like they do with smaller companies.

That is what I am saying.

BBTS, Toy Hobby Market, Hobby Link Japan, Robot Kingdom, plenty of places :tflaugh

According to this article, they are. They hold 30% of the market. TRU and Target are neck in neck between 18-17%. Also, keep in mind that toys in general are falling out of favor with kids who want electronic gadgets more than toys.

So, doesn't mean that Walmart tells Hasbro what to make and how much to make. Walmart does not own Hasbro. While I will not argue the market share, since that is obvious. The point I am trying to make is, the Retailers do not decide what Hasbro makes

You'd be surprised how much leeway Walmart has. After all, how can Hasbro say "no" to Walmart when Walmart is potentially their largest retailer? Now, I'm sure that Hasbro doesn't roll over and wag their tail when Walmart commands. That's not what I'm insinuating at all. What I am saying is that when Wally wants an exclusive, Hasbro delivers. Most times, it's a repaint of a previous series' figure (BB and SS for instance). But once in a blue moon, you get a new mold made just for Walmart (like the DLX OP).

I've heard stories from other manufacturers about how cutthroat Walmart can be at the business table. First hand stories from business development VPs that were at the meetings. Walmart didn't get to be the #1 retailer in the US by being complacent.

:agree Walmart is pretty demanding of the companies they business agreements with. Some years back, I read a story of a lawnmower manufacturer, that Wal-mart wanted to work a deal with them. They realized if they signed with Wal-Mart, it would of ended up destroying their company with all Wal-Mart wanted done. (here's one reposting of the story: (link) )

Anyways, Wal-Mart has screwed Hasbro in the exclusive department before. The OTFCC Seacons is complete proof of that, as they told Hasbro they wanted one more exclusive, and after Hasbro produced the set, Wal-Mart came back deciding they had flooded the market with TF Wal-Mart Exclusives, they wouldn't actually carry the set.

An Exclusive repaint is one thing, an Exclusive mold is different, as far as the an exclusive Deluxe Optimus Prime mold goes. Sure Walmart may be the first to have it, but it will end up at other stores later on. And if Walmart has so much pull, then most of their exclusives would not suck and not be shelfwarmers. Nor would there have been so many Tuner Mudflaps warming for over a year :P

Now Walmart can pursue certain items, but they can not tell Hasbro what to do. And as far as the Deluxe Op goes, he might be an exclusive in America and later on end up else where, but he is also in Japan also. Walmart can't control anything outside of America

How does the altmode look bland? If anything the original Top Spin is bland compared to Armored Topspin

Breaker - 2011-07-17 @ 5:46 am

Alt mode does look bland. Im not a fan of the weaponized mode either. But the robot mode looks really cool. Love the bits of orange in there.

i will never set foot in Walmarts again if they're the jerks telling Hasbro to make 80000000 Bumblebee figures.
