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

Toy Fair is a time to spark imagination and anticipation among we in the toy collecting segment of this fandom. Or it should be; not all years really work out that way, unfortunately. This year seems to be having a degree of success, although perhaps not exactly in the way Hasbro's designers and marketing teams might have been going for. Previously, I explained some of my concerns over what 2019's Generations might be based on the little bit that was said at Toy Fair. But there are ways a big change in process could be beneficial, and I'd like to talk now about one vision of this I have which could be pretty cool. Keep reading to find out how crazy my ideas can get!
2017 was a year. It occupied 12 pages of a traditional calendar, or even more if you had a weekly or even one of those fancy-learnin' word-a-day calendars! And during that year, things relating to the Transformers happened. Some more positive than others, or more fondly looked back on. Not everything was a winner, after all. Thus, I'll memorialize the year that was with some of my best remembered times in Transformers - in no particular order since I'm bad at chronology sometimes as well as weighing priority of a memory over others. I am literally the best at lists.


We learned late this afternoon that both Steam and Playstation Network have delisted a number of Transformers video games from their store pages. Affected by this are War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, Rise of The Dark Spark, and Transformers Devastation. None of these titles can be purchased digitally on the named platforms as of today, though users who have purchased them previously are still able to download and install the games. At last report, the XBox Marketplace had not followed suit in removing them. We can only speculate right now whether this is due to an elapsed license, or some other factor at work, but as of right now, tracking down physical media, where applicable, seems the only option now for obtaining these games.
The BBC and The Guardian are both reporting on a new development with the UK arm of Toys R Us that's putting serious pressure on the retailer. While the recently discussed bankruptcy protection proceedings of Toys R Us here in the US is not directly impacting other regions, Toys R Us UK is nonetheless investigating solutions to deal with its own financial problems, but with an added wrinkle: If the company cannot contribute £9 million (about $12 million) to its pension fund at least one state agency, the Pensions Protection Fund may vote against its current restructuring proposal, which could ultimately lead to all the UK stores shutting down. Keep reading for more.


We reported about a week ago on the possibility of a merger between Hasbro and Mattel, initiated by Hasbro themselves. We have word via Reuters that this effort did not proceed very far, and as of the current time the dealings are not moving forward. Reuters reports via confidential sources that part of the failure to deal at this time was due to what Mattel indicated was an "undervaluing" of the company by Hasbro. We don't expect much more to develop on this anytime soon, but as this wasn't the first time Hasbro has put out feelers, we're also sure it won't be the last. Find a link to the report in the full article below!
