    I spotted Atomic Lugnut at two Targets and picked up WreckGar at a Target in SF bay area.
    receipt/pictures will be available tonight.

    WRECK-GAR 's bio.

    WRECK-GAR
    AUTOBOT Rookie

    WRECK-GAR means well. All he really wants to do is help folks in need.
    Unfortunately, he's a terrible judge of character, and happily helps
    anyone who asks without thinking about what he's doing,
    He has accidentially robbed a few banks, and blasted an AUTOBOT
    here and there. His Spark is in the right place anyway.
    Now that he's clear on the difference between the AUTOBOTS
    and the DECEPTICONS, misunderstandings like that should
    happen less often.


    unfortunately, I didn't take a pic on the back box of Lugnut... well... I 'd try to make that up...

    Better still, if you can put up a nice clear shot of the bio and stuff, I'll have it added to the resources section :)

    No, I don't think so. That's probably going to come out the same time as Sunstorm since both are Target exclusives with packed in Activators figures.

    So much stuff coming out, so little $$$. Still, it'll probably be a few weeks until Wreck-Gar shows up here giving me time to save up.

    Can you post accurate transformation instructions for Wreck-Gar? I really want to see what Hasbro says to do with those forks when he's in Robot mode.

    It usually takes very long for the Target stores near me to get or put out new stuff though.

    Sunstorm and Purple Shockwave will be available at Target in the U.S. soon. They are already available at robotkingdom.com if you can't wait.

    I saw the case at my local Wal-Mart, but it was the bottom of a pallet and I had to leave. XD

    What is with the NorCal stores getting first dibs on stuff? usually it's SoCal that gets the goods immediately. :(

    ooooh. I think I will actually snag Wreck-Gar, and I haven't bought a TF in quite a long time.
