SDCC 2012 - Transformers Prime Display at Wednesday Night Preview Shows Off Thundertron

The second part of our walkaround of the Hasbro display area includes the Transformers Prime toyline. Not really any surprises here unless you count Thundertron, which makes its debut in October 2012 for $19.99. Unfortunately Ultra Magnus and Skyquake have not been sited, but be sure to check out the entire display in our gallery.

Yeah, I wouldn't kick a Camaro out of the garage myself but I prefer a Mustang by a long stretch.

And absolutely. In the last month before Christmas Bumblebee was a no show in my area, and in the last week there were no TFs anywhere. I went to Target and they had 1 FAB Frenzy left. I passed on it and changed my mind 15 later figuring it was better than nothing but it was already gone. Even the Universe Scouts at Dollar General were wiped out.

And I still remember Christmas 2007 when there was nary a dan Bumblebee to be found. I eventually had to get a Premium series BB. Seriously, the Target 2 packs disappeared fast, FABs were empty, no Bumblebee of any kind anywhere.

I never thought at that time I'd come to prefer it that way....

Really I found 5 on clearance and bought 3 of them. 2 are still MISB

Rob is onto something. I think kids may be over it now but at one point, BB was the IT character like Optimus Prime is to most of us. And all of the new Camaro's sold since then probably had a little help from the movies. Hell, i want one and i don't like Bumblebee.

Nah, Bumblebee was a fad and nothing more,as for the new camero it does it on its own. Though I never wanted one myself, I'm more of a Mustang owner myself

Like it or not. BB is the face of TF to the younger Generation. He's the cool one to kids and the mainstream audience. It's been him at the forefront since 2007. Makes sense that retailers would want more of him on shelves. Thats slown down enough for them to change the case assortments. So, now in a few months we'll have to find something else to complain about.

Who said anything about cry, I said clamor. As in getting all excited and yelling his name upon site.

BB and John Cena who they always pronounce 'DON DENA'

But like I said, over saturated.

Blitz-Wing 2012-07-13 @ 8:02 pm

How can they cry about not getting a BB? Every TRU I go to has at least 30 of them in at least 4 different series types. That's like going to the supermarket and crying there's no ice cream :tflaugh

Hellscream85 2012-07-13 @ 7:55 pm

I've never heard a kid cry because they didn't have a Bumblebee, Skywarp on the other hand....

robo_rob 2012-07-13 @ 7:23 pm

See it's the exact opposite here. I can hear kids clamoring for BB before I even get to the aisle. They over saturated that.

Lord_Onslaught 2012-07-13 @ 7:20 pm

Dude, folks are still complaining about all the Transquitos at TRU.

I can dream, can't I?

Yes you can and so can I, I still remember when the 2007 toys came out, a dad showed a Bumblebee to his son, and his son said no he wanted Barricade instead. So that is how I know all this about BB is BS.

Hopefully the retailers will just too the Bumblebee's on the death shelves of clearance that way they can actually put out the figures that everyone wants.
