14 reveals, and only 1 we didn’t have specific knowledge of in advance.
The latest Fan First Friday has wrapped up, and they came armed with a lot of upcoming product announcements to cram in the half hour runtime of the stream.
The full first wave of Studio Series 86 was shown off, though not every toy had a production sample on hand today. Jazz, Kup, and Blurr for the Deluxes, and Hot Rod and Scourge at the Voyager price point were shown off. Leader Grimlock had design CG shown, but a sample wasn’t available due to some deco issues. The preorders begin today, and the figures are planned for release in February.
They showed off the boxed set version of Studio Series Devastator too, with minor deco modifications and a giant display backdrop. As of posting it’s already up for preorder on some retailers for $259.99.
Walmart is getting a series of Titans Return rereleases, featuring the TakaraTomy version Headmaster heads, and with new decos. The first wave consists of Chromedome, Hardhead, Brainstorm, and Mindwipe, and they’re supposed to be released in January.
On Amazon, the second Galactic Odyssey set is a Micromaster set of six from Planet Micron. The set finishes off the Race Track Patrol, , and adds some extra characters, including some inspired by MASK toy decos.
And Target has Earthrise Thrust and Runabout. While immediate feelings of doom followed the announcement of preorders beginning today, the actual experience seems to have been painless, thankfully. Those toys are supposed to be in stock in December.
And yet all this, but still no mention of Bluestreak. Have they forgotten they never told us about it…?
