    Excellent news. Especially since the Target on this side of town is down to only two Rollbars. Restock time...

    His license plate says "Cybertron," instead of a U.S. state like Rollbar and Ricochet had...

    Yeah, I'm not sweating the fact that Cataclizm got that Prime too much (EVEN THOUGH I LOOKED ALL OVER FOR IT AT THAT SAME WALMART JUST A FEW HOURS BEFORE :banghead:  ) since it will be in other waves. And who knows, there may be another BOGO sale on TFs at some point before summer. I'd love to scoop up a Prime and Mirage at the same time with the clerks giving me funny looks :D

    About goddamn time. I seriously hope this is the last news thread about this figure too, it's been getting rediculous lately.

    And we still don't know anything more about the black version do we?

    Fine by me. Hell if that's the case, I'd rather get frustrated now and get it over with only to find Prime and Mirage at the same time. That'd be a hell of a score, especially seeing as how the most recent comparison would be finding Rollbar/Ricochet together. :redface2:

    Hey Ron, don't forget, keep an eye out for Prime and Mirage for me too. I got one of each on pre-order at BBTS but because I don't know what the hell is gonna happen with BT or BT* or KISS TF or WTSDGSDG, I need a second pair of Alts to open and play with.

    I almost regret not keeping my BT MISB and instead keeping my Alts MISB. I love diecast but plastic in the Alts make them more fun to play with.

    OK...can somebody explain the step where you're supposed to pull out his arm-chasis from the truck mode?!?! They are so tight...:( 

    edit: nevermind. I was supposed to rotate them out instead of pull. :redface2:
