    Hmmm...a sighting on Tfans by a poker loser with cell phone pictures he conveniently can't upload? I'm more than a bit suspicious. I'd call it total BS, but I saw GFOP at a local grocery store. Unfortunately I was so surprised I dropped my camera into a vat of pickles after I took the picture, and then fell into a drunken stupor, so now can't even remember which grocery store. :drunk

    It might be a legitamite sighting. I was walking through the toy section en route to electronics this morning at one of the Wal-Marts in town, and saw one, box beat to hell, but there was one there.

    Well, some of the stores in my area have seen a restock on the original Cybertron Prime. Weird, but true.

    Doesn't matter if it's BS or not. Most of us here are passing on it.

    I'm gonna have to see this in stores myself to see if I want to pick it up-- I really wanna see how close his red is to the first Prime's, etc. That'll determine whether I buy it or not.

    If I never see it in stores, then oh well. Ain't gonna lose sleep over it, that's for sure...

    I'll be another to confirm that this is out at Walmart. Went to my nearby location during lunch. Couldn't take a picture due to the toys being rearranged, but it's definitely out.

    I know some of you want this repaint, but it's just not different enough from the original for me to buy it.

    It's not so much a repaint as simply some Primes they ran out of grey and yellow towards the end of the original and this was the result...

    Got him last night. The dark red is very nice - would have been perfect for Classics Prime.

    Thanks for the faith there OT. As you may or may not believe, I actually did see it there last night, and again tonight for that matter.

    Sorry to hear about your mishap w/ the vat of pickles.

    I'm sure no offense was meant by it. Just sadly that a number of "sightings" originating from your message board of choice have proven bogus on more than one occassion.

    Here was the picture that I took the other day. This has since been confirmed by numerous people, but I thought I would post it anyway. Yes, the quality is poor, but it is a camera phone.

    EDIT: Ok, now I can't get the damn thing to load, this is becoming frustrating. I will post this tonight when I get home and can use imageshack (can't use it at work).

    EDIT:
    fixed your link. -JM
