    I saw them around Xmas at Marshalls and took a pass since I was not collecting TFs back then. That all changed with the release of Jazz, Tracks and Kup!

    About a month ago I found Powerglide and bought it. Then on Friday I go into Marshalls and there they're again. I'm thanking my lucky stars for getting a 2nd chance. Even my buddy was doing the happy dance too.

    Are you guys seing this too or is just me and some lost case in the back?

    Who is the repaint? is it Hardhead or Onslaught?

    Same deal with Skyfall...who is the repaint? Him or Silverbolt?

    Hardhead is the repaint of Onslaught, and Skyfall is the repaint of Silverbolt.

    mass-release Onslaught > walmart-exclusive Hardhead > Botcon-exclusive Clench
    mass-release white Powerglide > mass-release Storm Cloud > walmart-exclusive red Powerglide
    mass-release Silverbolt > TRU-exclusive Darkwind > walmart-exclusive Skyfall

    Hardhead/Onslaught is a pretty great figure, you should be glad to have one :)  I've never been to Marshall's so I can't answer your question about "are you seeing this too?" However, a while back Hardhead was selling for a lot on the aftermarket cos none were in stock and people wanted the unlicensed headmaster addon, so you might wanna consider picking up more for people

    Yes. I've seen remnants of the the red Powerglide, Skyfall, and Hardhead case a couple times now. I never saw them around the holidays though.

    Thanks for the info. That does clarify it. I got Harhead because even without the add on he is cool. The other one went to my friend but the box was a little crushed. I guess the case breakdown was 2 of each but one Skyfall was missing.

    Oh and the electronics did not work anymore. Haven't taken them out of the package but the Powerglide sounds do work. Weird.

    Probably a dead battery. You're better off w/o the sounds anyway. They're generic and get real annoying real fast.

    True true. I've seen pics of battery acid damage to a Powerglide so once I open them, the batteries are coming off.
