Transformers Flame Toys Model Kits Released at Retail

Thanks to Gunslinger for letting us know that they found the Flame Toys Thundercracker and Bumblebee model kits at an EB Games in Quebec. (Place RosemŤre)

The kits retail for around $62 plus taxes.

Happy Hunting! (and building!)

Saw them at the local EB last weekend. They're also available on EB's website.

Re: Transformers Flame Toys Model Kits Released at Retail

Got the Bee out of curiosity... will work on it after I am done with the Gunplaís and HG Grendizer on hands!

Obviously I havenít put it together so I donít know the fit and finish of the parts, but the molding and parts assembly are not on par with comparable priced kits from, say, Bandai Spirit. I expected better at this price from Flame Toys. But the Bee does look good in pictures.

Nice! Got the HG Grendizer as well! Can't wait to start it. But on the fence with Bee, would be my first flame toys though.

Didn't realize the pic was such garbage resolution...
If anyone is wondering, Thundercracker is 53$ and Bumblebee is 70$

I havenít seen HG Grendizer at any EB but they are selling Bandai Spirit kits (Gunplas and Star Wars) distributed by BlueFin for a while now I will not be surprised if they did. I supposed EB carries Flame Toys kits now because BlueFin has just got the NA distribution right.
