Toy News: "Authentics" Titan Changers Grimlock and Starscream Found at Retail in the Philippines

Back in January four new Authentics figures were revealed. Among them were two new "Titan Changer" Class figures: Grimlock and Starscream. We now have our first look at these figures at retail thanks to fellow fan Kenneth Y. who spotted them at Toy Kingdom in the Philippines. Previously the "Bravo" series Ratchet was spotted in Australia so it appears these are making their way to toy store shelves.

In early 2018 the "Transformers Authentics" line of figures was released. The first assortment was the "Bravo" set featuring Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream. So far in the United States these have mostly been found at Family Dollar stores. However, it appears there is a chance Target may carry these figures in some way.
