    It's a silly question to many I'm sure, but is the Galvatron/Cyclonus/Rodumis 3 pack CONFIRMED for US release?

    It's $55 plus shipping at TFSource or BBTS. If it hits a US Exclusive the price would be $30-$36 ~ $39 after taxes but $20 if it goes on clearance. Very tough decision. I've gone ahead and bought it for my piece of mind.

    Like the above posters have said it is not US confirmed yet, but many have speculated that it certaily will be released (some have said Target).

    I ordered mine ages ago out of fear it won't be released here in the states.

    i want cyclonus because it looks amazing, i want galvatron for more toy accurate color scheme, and i want hot rod just for hot rod, so i can use my current hot rod for protector

    but if i don't get the set i'll live

    i will be getting two though, damn thing gonna be worth a nice little amount of coinage in the future thanks to protector

    I know it's being pedantic, but to avoid confusion, the name is "Challenge at Cybertron."

    Hasbro may be waiting for the spring 2011 stuff for it. Keep in mind thats when they are really ramping up Generations with scourge jazz, the new G1 legends etc.

    I'm speculating it's a Black Friday item. It doesn't make sense that it'd be at online retailers now and we haven't heard about a retail release unless it's being held back, and Black Friday is the perfect event.

    bought a set already I look at it this way either the classics or Henkei Rodimus will run you more than this set, Throw in Cyclonus and the deal is even better.

    I chose to grab it as i lacked the Rodimus and Cyclonus molds for the the G alvatron I just put him on a shelf and forgot about him.
