This past Friday, Target finally lauched preorders for Kingdom Road Rage, and Collaborative Draculus, giving us our first look at the Universal Monsters crossover. Draculus is profoundly just Titans Return Mindwipe, with a new chest, and fully integrated head replacing the Titan Master. A soft goods cape is also added, but otherwise the toy, right down to its accessories, is just a redeco of Mindwipe. Draculus went up for preorder at about $31 with delivery expected at the end of November, and it actually presold out on both Target and Pulse!
Road Rage is still available to preorder at Target as of this posting, with shipping scheduled to begin in early October.
And this seems to just be the start of the “Fall Season” of new toys, with sightings at Walmarts in the US beginning to turn up for Kingdom Waspinator and Shadow Panther, plus Studio Series Gnaw, Jolt, and Voyager Sweep. Even Selects toy-colors Galvatron popped up at a collectibles store in Canada, indicating that toy is in the North American distribution pipeline as well! We can only hope these start reaching more stores in additional locations very soon to break the new toy drought a lot of us have been experiencing.
