    Alternators Ravage and Rumble, the last two Alternators to be released, will be exclusive to WalMart and due in stores within the next few weeks. Keep your eyes on the look out for these last two figures of this great Transformers toyline.

    Have you found a new Transformer? Are you trying to find those hard to get Transformers toys being released? Or are you simply one of those guys that buys up toys on clearance to sell on Ebay? Then check out our Sightings Forum and let the others know or plan your next toy-hunting trip!

    How sure is it that R & R will be exclusive (brick-and-mortar-wise) to TreasonMart?

    Do you know if they will be completely exclusive to Wal-Mart, or are they just the only b&m store left carrying Alts? That is, any idea if online stores -- especially HasbroToyShop -- will be able to carry them?

    I have no idea if online stores will carry them. Wasn't there a rumor or a statement that BBTS had it's order cancelled by Hasbro?

    Online stores will find a way to get their hands on some, no matter if it's an exclusive.

    I remember seeing that rumor, but after a search, I found this:
    So, hopefully, it was just a rumor. Hope HTS gets 'em, too! (My Wal-Mart's extremely hit-and-miss on what they carry and timeliness.)

    Well, that's a tad more reassuring concerning my preorder with TFCC. They have kept saying that they are just waiting on Hasbro. TFCC also said, though, that they may be a store exclusive and may not be able to get them. All I know is that I paid them both off with TFCC in early December and am still waiting on . . . something. :banghead:

    No, but according to this thread (I haven't been to Target to see for myself yet) there's going to be some extra space in the section that normally carries TFs for a couple of months.

    So, anything more concrete?

    Hopefully HTS will also have some so I can complete my Alt. collection. Wal-Mart hasn't been to kind to me to find an Atl. in since maybe Hound. Check that I did get Skids, Sunstreaker and that wave at Wal-Mart too, but I found better luck at Target and Toys R Us. I rarely go to Wal-Mart but once these two show up I may have to stop there more offten.

    Yeah, there was more space created when Hasbro returned to vendor all the Transformers Attacktix booster packs. And Cybertron figures are on clearance because they're no longer available to order through Hasbro, so they're marked as NGF (Non-Go-Forward), which usually means a store will clearance them out to get ready for the new product listing to order (Movie!).

    Expect Classics to go on clearance too within the next couple of months, I imagine.

    As for something more concrete?

    I don't post shit on the frontpage if it's not concrete. I thought you guys knew me by now! :)

    I knew there had to be a reason why the ALT DPCI numbers no longer existed in the Target system.

    When will they get to Case Fresh or Biby Co. (if they get there at all, that is)? All that this news means is that they are getting closer to release, which means that people can review them, which helps me know if I should get them or not.
