Canada Black Friday Transformers Sales

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 00:28:00 CST

(image) While Black Friday has not always been a tradition in Canada, the past couple of years have seen stores step up their game and giving some pretty great deals. This year though, both Walmart and Toysrus don't have anything specific to the brand. All that Toysrus has is a deal where if you buy 100$ worth of anything, you get a 15$ coupon for your next purchase. You can see the flyer here. Amazon.ca however, has an amazing set of deals. You can get to the Transformers that are part of the ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 08:40:00 CST

(image) Hasbro welcomed a few chinese fans, those who won this contest, to their Shanghai offices to handle the upcoming 2018 toys. One particular fan, Iamnofire shared his thoughts on weibo concerning the upcoming Studio Series toys Grimlock, Blackout, Optimus Prime and Starscream. Firstly, it seems the leaders, Grimlock and Blackout, will look a lot like their on screen apparances but have very easy transformations. This was hinted at with the bigger panels present on leader Blackout in the ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

(image) While fans are waiting for more images of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade, we now have images of the box he will come in, courtesy of 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂 on weibo (aka TF-Factory). While both the Takara Tomy and Hasbro logos are on the box, as is the case for all MPM releases since the 2017 line revival, we can tell this is the Hasbro packaging due to several languages being found on the box, and none of them being Japanese. The packaging lets us know a few ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

Deluxe Hot Rod from Transformers: The Last Knight Finally Found at Walmart Stores in Canada

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:02:00 CST

(image) While Transformers: The Last Knight deluxe Hot Rod has been found in the UK as well as available for ordering from Walmart.com in the US, there was no word of it ever reaching Canada. It was not part of their holiday catalog where they highlighted some of their exclusives and it never appeared on their walmart.ca website, not even as a placeholder listing.

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 01:00:00 CST

(image) While Power of the Primes appearing at US retail may be on everyone's minds at the moment, the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline has still not been fully released in the US. The main toy missing from the shelves is Deluxe Cogman from the fourth wave, where he is the only new toy. While waiting for this toy to reach retail, here is a pictorial review of him with comparison shots and images of him at different angles.

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 22:14:00 CST

(image) It's been a while since we last had word of Hallmark's Transformers-themed Christmas ornaments for this year - Hot Rod was found on Walmart's website and Optimus Prime was available for a reduced price on JCPenney's site, both in late September. Now we have not only word of the two appearing at brick-and-mortar retail stores, but also of what seems to be a packaging variant for the Optimus Prime ornament!

Deluxe Stinger and Leader Blackout from 2018 Transformers Movie Line on Display

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 23:56:00 CST

(image) A pretty awesome image has just emerged on the Facebook Transformers fanpage Taiwan TFCC. It shows new live action Transformers toys at an event in Taiwan. The most obvious is Stinger, who is a deluxe in an upcoming movie line which will look back on previous films. The line seems to be called Transformers Studio Series. While the picture is small and blurry (as is tradition with leaks of the most anticipated toys), Stinger appears to be far more movie accurate than the Bumblebee redeco we got ...

Firstly, a wrap up party means that the shoot is over. Of course, it is now time for all that editing and addition of our very favourite CG characters into the movie.

Deluxe Cogman from Transformers: The Last Knight Found At EB Games in Canada

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 21:50:00 CST

(image) Many fans are still wondering if Cogman will appear at retail stores or not, due to him being part of the final wave of the Transformers: The Last Knight toyline and the trend of tail end toys to be harder to find. The fact that just today we have confirmation that late coming Walmart exclusives have been sold to market six stores and will not show up at their initially designated retail outlet are further cause to fear. But I bring good news, Cogman has been found at Canadian retail. He and ... View the full news story on Seibertron.com by clicking here.

Via fellow Seibertronians Cyberpath and Emerje, we have word that Family Guy's most recent episode (Season 16 Episode 5, broadcast on November 5th, for those of you keeping track) features an extended parody of Michael Bay's memorably unique directing style - with multiple specific references to Transformers along the way!
