    Just because, for once, I want to see someone besides Nevermore posting this...

    http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=6164

    Steve Pontiac, long time Allsparker, contacted me this morning to state that he found Cannonball and Skywarp at a Walmart in Englewood, Ohio. I spoke to someone in the toy department there, and he was not able to find these still on the shelf. Now, coming from a new user or someone I'd never heard of, I would not trust this, but Steve has been on the AS for quite a long time and, as memory serves, he's been the first to find new stuff before. Given those factors, I believe this to be a legitimate sighting.

    If we can get pictures, I'll update the news post.

    Hmm, seems a little early to me, but I'm not going to dismiss it right away. I would like some pics and/or report from someone working in the stores to confirm or deny this. I almost hope not, I still haven't found Wingsaber or Soundwave yet...

    How "early"? Adam Pawlus just confirmed that Entertainment Earth got them in their warehouse a few days ago.

    The sooner all this repaint crap gets released, the sooner Unicron can make his (mini) triumphant return.
