The Movie Toys


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...everything you love about TFs was watered down for the masses. Not only did they release a *lot* of toys in one shot, they also released them concurrently, in sets, as store exclusives, as mail-aways...*

My childhood is gone, destroyed by the corporate beast that is Hasbro (and people wonder why I don't like beasts). It's bionicle on steriods, its...well, some of it's ok, actually. Too-many toys. Literally, three movies and thousands of toys later, the Bayformers have made Transformers 'mainstream.' Good for the shareholders...bad for completists. :-)

In-addition to the multiple recolors (and repackaging) of movie molds at regular mass-retail, we saw Walmart, Best Buy, and Target-specific recolors, recolors of Energon and Cybertron say nothing of old movie toys recolored and remolded, and released into the *next* movie line.

It's huge. Needs a page to itself. Doesn't deserve it, considering what has happened to the fandom, but there it is. :-)

Movie 2007

There were several TFs released in the Universe subline during The Movie. These have been listed in the Universe section of the site. Or possibly here. Lewis will likely remind me. :-) Don't think I didn't see the crack in the combiners giftset listing. Voyagter Blackout with Scorponok is not a combiner. He's a Targetmaster. :-) The big one wasn't sold with deluxe Scorpy as a giftset in the US. So there. Nyah!

(Webmaster's Note: Okay, it's your site...but if the Darkwings are considerd a Giftset, then I don't know how Blackout and Scorponk aren't...but you're the boss, I just work here. :-))

A number of these were recolors of previous movie/universe/ whoever toys. Ostensibly released as 'exclusives' to various bigbox stores, since they changed the colors on the figures we can't just list them as repacks, thus doubling my workload.

     - Bumblebee vs. Soundwave with Rodimus (Legion) [Walmart]
     - Bumblebee/Bumblebee vs. Starscream/Starscream (Legion) [TRU]

     - Flash Freeze Assault (Human Alliance)

Robo Power Robo Fighters:

Robo Power Revving Robots:


Note: Much like the Power Core Combiner nonsense, the same gimmicky weapon could be spread across multiple figures. A rough list:

The Flipout Axe: Mudflap, Optimus Prime (Walmart)

The Gun-Saw: Topspin, ***
