    Hi,
    I just wanted everyone to know that i just got back from my local Walmart, Fresno, CA.
    There i saw the new dlx smokescreen, Dlx Optimus prime, and Dlx Megatron. I did not buy them, or take pics. I know there will probably be naysayers, but I thought i would let you guys know anyway. Many of you have bought toys from me before and know me on a personal level. I would not post it unless it was true.
    So let the hunt begin :) 
    Greg

    Looks like we're at the end of Cybertron then... Smokescreen will be the last figure of the line I get. It's too bad, it's been a great series.

    Smokescreen is a TF I want for my collection. Him and Menasor are the last two I'm after.

    Yay, more Cybertron out of the way! :) 

    OK, what's left (in Cybertron) that hasn't been released yet? Only things I can think of now are the "promo packs" like the Leaders with the basics, Basics with the DVDs, and Primus with the new Minicons.

    I was kind of hoping we'd get Voyager Starscream somewhere before the line ran out. (By himself, not in the TRU Vector Prime two-pack, and not in Thrust colors.) Anyone know if that will ever happen? Ah well, I got the LoC version.

    Yup, I was thinking the same thing. Till there is an actual, official Classics Smokescreen, this IS Classics Smokescreen. Just like, as far as I am concerned, Energon Downshift IS Classics Wheeljack. :)

    Yep, if you want the BWX molds, you may have to settle for these repaints.

    Good find Greg! Doubt I'll pick them up but I may if I decide to keep my BWX ones sealed.

    I think all that is left is Hightail (Autobot repaint of Lugnutz) and the Shadow Minicon Team.

    This is only the last wave of the DELUXE size class, not the entire line - so yeah...it's unlikely, but possible.

    It's cool to know that these guys are out though. I'm still on the fence with Smokescreen - I already have the original Crosswise deco and it would feel weird to me to have Cybertron repaints displayed with the Classics figures...it just feels odd for some reason....

    I don't think Hightail, the Lugnutz redeco has yet to be sighted at retail yet in the US.

    Keep a check on BBTS to see if they get any more in stock, that’s where I had to pick mine up at. I've still never seen either Megs or Primal at a retail store. The only place I've ever even run into one was a Primal at CybCon after I had already ordered mine.
