    But he was early this morning.

    Might want to keep yer eyeballs peeled for when he is in stock again.

    -This info came from the allspark front page-

    Just noticed it has a story along with it as well!

    Obviously an adaptation of the Binaltech story, but I wonder what the exact source is.

    After you mentioned it I read the features & specifications and noticed that as well. Must have came from Hasbro but then that story is not on their boxes...unless it came from one of Walmart's website products marketing personnel. None of the other Alts have that bit of the story though.

    Anyone remember Mazda's flash animation that revealed what would end up as Meister more than two years ago? They used this bit:

    So that's the second time the BT story has been acknowledged in the West...

    Hey, Cheebs. FX here :D 

    Indeed, it sounds like you didn't pre-order early enough to get in on the 1st shipment. I've not heard any news on the 2nd shipment yet (which I'm sure is coming).

    I certainly hope I got in on Mirage's 1st shipment. Good luck, man.

    I just found prime at target :D  I noticed that he was on wal mart.com yesterday, but I don't know if it was ever "in stock" I Only saw it when it was already sold out and it was sold out yesterday. :(

    I got one at about 8pm EST. Finals week means I have to ship him home, so I won't be modding and loving him for a good 10 days.

    I got mine today. The idiots at Walmart stuck it in a box that was too short and the bubble got crushed. The toy was fine though and I'm an opener so I really don't care. I am disappointed by his paint apps though. They're kinda sloppy in some parts.
