    BigBadToyStore.com has Deep Desert Brawl in stock. To my knowledge this would be the first place to have him on hand since I do not recall any retail sightings. Also there are pre-orders up for Classics Hot Rodimus and Classics Astrotrain. The picture of the figure appears to be the US version but there is a picture of the cartoon Astrotrain's head so I wouldn't be surprised if it is in the cartoon colors. I recall seeing something about Hot Rodimus but not Astrotrain before so this is news to me.

    I don't know if this should go in the news section so I will post here. I hope this is helpful to some of you.

    Brawl is perfectly camouflaged in any of Earth's fluorescent-blue studded deserts.

    Not really feelin the Japanese Classics. Repainted or not, they are essentially the same colors...sans Megatron, who (so far anyway) will be the only one I plan on buying. I don't like his alt mode at all but I won't have him displayed that way anyhow.

    And where's the techno music??? Brawl has a rave to get to!

    I'll eventually have to get Rodimus to replace my broken one :(  The price won't be much different for me anyway.

    Preordered Megatron. Surprised that Grimlock and Starscream sold out before him though.

    This all but confirms Astrotrain is coming in show-accurate colors. Nifty!

    I wonder how Hot Rod(imus) will be 'improved' upon. Maybe an entirely orange car hood/ robot chest with the classic flame design? Very light red instead of the darker burgundy Classics Rodimus has?

    The movie/cartoon version of Hot Rod was kind of pink, wasn't he? I know he was almost entirely purple in the Marvel comics, which I always found bizarre.

    Nice!

    You know, this is odd that BBTS shows it in stock, and none of us have seen it in retail yet. I also noticed that is is already sold out when I clicked on the link. I am really liking his color schemes, although hes not really camouflaged like the description says :)

    It isn't that surprising that BBTS would get it before retail. Online retailers sometimes get product before the brick and mortar stores.
