    This is firmly in the rumors half of News and Rumors.

    Transformers Generations listings at Wal-Mart: Black Shadow, Junkion

    But even Seibertron admits that they have had users making false reports to them before.


    Maybe someone here who works at Wal-Mart could check to confirm whether this is true or not.

    Junkion is cool and you don't even need a grain of salt for that one. We've seen the head on the Wreck Gar instruction and Hasbro stated Generations is not over.

    The question I have is...Who is blackshadow?

    He's the Thunderwing remold we know about. Black Shadow was a Takara remold of Thunderwing back in the day (for Zone, I think)

    I have a hard time believing hasbro would just name a toy "Junkion", but I guess its not impossible

    I really hope they wait for some of the pegwarmers to dry up before these are released. I really want a big saturation of these guys. Really need to pick up another Thunderwing incase someone makes an upgrade kit for him and Black Shadow.

    Taken with a grain of salt...

    Man, I HOPE Black Shadow (and the Junkion) is coming. I really hope the case assortment is pretty good.. Like:

    2 x Black Shadow
    2 x Junkion
    2 x Warpath
    1 x Wheeljack
    1 x Thundercracker


    I'd prefer a whole wave of new toys, but we have to take what we can get...

    Well, we know we're getting those toys eventually, its just a matter of whether this particular rumor is true (about them being listed in WM's computers as part of Generations).

    All we need is confirmation from someone who either works at Wal-Mart (to check them) or someone to just call a few Wal-Marts and ask if the SKUs come up in the system.

    I skipped Thunderwing specifically for Black Shadow. I eagerly await first pics of him if this is true.

    And I highly doubt Junkion will actually be the name of a mass-release retool of Wreck-Gar. Hasbro sometimes does use odd names instead of the official ones in the listings (I.E. HFTD Highbrow was originally listed as "Twin Boom Fight", because he's an approximation of a P-38 Lightning, a twin propeller fighter plane)

    "Decepticon Black Shadow" maybe, but that's too long. "Black Shadow" would never fly as a trademark or register.

    I wouldn't say "Decepticon Black Shadow" would be too long, since a few of the RTS figures had excessively long prefixes such as "Special Ops Jazz" and "Solar Storm Grappel".

    I think the logical name would be Sky Shadow. Close enough to the original and also one that's been used before, so should be secure to use again.
