    Have not seen any of these yet. I have been looking for them too, and figured that they would have seen a mass release by now. but the stores will be flooded with them soon enough. So I guess a little patience is called for, which totally blows.

    I can't remember exactly when I got mine but I've had them at least two + months. Thanks for the report though!

    I've been hunting for Starscream and Roadbuster for a while now. Nice to see them showing up.

    Today I saw a Dark Sentinel Prime at one of my Walmarts, but they had very little of anything else. Hopefully they're restocking soon? (definitely a product shift/reset going on)

    They're here in my neck of the woods (South Korea). Picked up Roadbuster and he's pretty neat (and he's sold out at most online retailers, I find). I like how his chainsaw folds up in alt mode, or can be flipped out for side-chopping action. Flak looks OK but not really digging the character or mold. Starscream; his alt mode is decent enough but that bot mode is urgh (he definitely deserves a Commander class figure, at least).

    I left Flak and Starscream on the peg since I find Deluxe Starscream a better mold and scale match for the rest of the Cyberverse toys (planes are bigger than cars, shocking, I know XD) but now I'm rethinking getting mini Screamer just because I'm an SS fanboy.

    I also picked up Leadfoot, and he's pretty cool too. ("Get in mah bellay!") Just need Topspin to complete the trio. Really wish Hasbro would stick to one aesthetic for the Wreckers per subline; ie. making all the Cyberverse weaponized, the Deluxes non-weaponized, and all the HAs weaponized in alt mode. All this mixing and matching of W/NW for the Wreckers makes no sense to me.

    Megatron sans trailer and Battle Steel Optimus are also here. Megatron is boss and looks good leading the Dread convoy (plus Blackout and TFTM Barricade) in vehicle mode (even with his cute mini gas tank). Debating BS OP or his original jetwing deco. No sign of Dark Sentinel yet but regular Sentinel is available here too (I'll probably grab him later today).

    Deluxe redecos. The back half of them are translucent to appear as if they are scanning their alt modes.
