    I did a forum search in here and I didn't see that there was a first sighting of these guys yet. Although, the search tool seems to be kinda fubar'd and doesn't always work right....

    Beaverton Oregon Target about an hour ago. The spare Dirge is for a board member. They didn't have any other Cliffjumpers on the pegs.

    DPCI 087-06-1932 (Evidently this is the same DPCI for all Activators. Thanks PoweredConvoy for that info.)

    They also had a full end cap of the Ratchet and Shockwave 2 packs back in stock, at the hot retail price of $24.99.

    Cool, I've been somewhat wanting a Dirge. I'll have to check the local Target tomorrow.

    Note that the DPCI is the same DPCI for all the Activators, not just these two.

    We've had Dirge for months, but hopefully Cliffjumper shows up soon.

    How do we have Dirge but not any of the Seekers already on TFA? I hope Dirge gets some screentime.

    I saw Dirge a couple days ago at TRU. I'll be going back there tomorrow for the sale. Guess I'll keep an eye out for Cliffjumper.

    I thought these were supposed to be out a while ago?:confused:  I still haven't seen Universe Legends for months either...
    Ah well, I'll look out for Cliffjumper.

    Well, judging by the thread over in the Toys forum http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/229212-activators-cliffjumper-dirge.html many people have been looking for these for quite awhile. I am surprised so many responses have already indicated they've been seen in stores. They were indeed available on HTS for short time (like a day), and BBTS (in a bundle of 5 figures for $50+), so it makes sense that at least a few members here have them already, but I haven't seen any retails spottings until I tripped over them today. I wasn't even expecting it at all. I was hoping for ROTF figs and my arm just about popped out of the socket ripping these off the pegs. I've been long dreading having to go through Ebay for the painfully marked up prices. $30 a figure or something.
