    I doubt somewhat that this is news, but I hadn't seen it posted and I had the pics, so I figured what the hell, why not waste a perfectly good thread? Feel free to delete it if this is redundant info.

    I didn't pull 'em out 'cause the stockers were out in force and they sometimes get angry when you touch things. However, I went back and saw that the leaders in the box were Metroplex and Prime (regular version, I think), but I can't recall which scout goes with which.

    I took the pics at a Sacramento WM on Saturday night of last week (just been too lazy to post them) in case you're wondering. Time to pass out. Over and out!

    I do believe it's news that these are out now. Nice find. I needs me a Metroplex.

    I saw Megatron with a Swindle on top at a Target in Maryland two days ago (just in case anyone was wondering about distribution).

    I also saw these on the shelf at one of my local walmarts last night. Who knows for sure how long they were there. I didn't think it was news..

    Was it the Super Wal*Mart on Antelope in Sacramento? I just saw those the other night up on a riser myself, didn't think of posting about it though. The Optimus I saw was the Galaxy Force version and not the regular one though.

    Don't think this has been reported yet, thanks Triformis.

    EDIT: And thanks, because that was my 2,005th post :D

    Saw these on the top shelf of the Lee's Summit, MO Wal-Mart 3-4 days ago. I didn't realize they were that new (although I was wondering).

    Yeah, I'd rather see Galvatron than Metroplex. He's already warming shelves everywhere. At least they're shipping Megatron again though.

    Nope, this was the one off...uh...hold on...*goes to check*...ah-ha! The one off Leadhill in Roseville. Then, the next day, I went to the one in Dixon and they had 'em on the top shelf. I have yet to see them in my own town of San Jose.

    Weird, Megatron comes with Swindle? I would have expected Hardtop instead, or maybe Brushguard, but I guess those early BOGO Scouts from Wal-Mart helped cleared them out.

    And if it had been Swindle with Galvatron (heck, most Scouts with Galvy would be ok), that would have been an instant purchase for me.

    One day I want to cause a scene and demand to see a manager if some stock asshole gets uppidy about me wanting to buy the store's merchandise. Its not as if the store even bothers keeping an accurate record of stock anyway for me to mess up their system.
