    I know it’s not a big deal to some but it is to me. I had been looking for all the main movie line deluxe class and strayed off to non featured toys in the process.

    Anyway I’d say this is a score. I had not seen a single one of these till Sunday night. ( I don’t even know when this one was released but the packaging states that the toy was produced in 2006).

    This completes the main movie line deluxe toys. So I am excited.

    I have still NOT seen a single solitary Brricade in a (major) retail outlet. Many Recon Barricades but not the police movie Barricade. I had to get mine at a consignment shop.

    Needless to say I am rather stoked I have not completed anything before due to not being able to find something (for a reasonable enough price).

    I saw an '08 BB stuck behind the first waves of all spark power deluxes at one local Wal-Mart.

    there was a "filler" wave where hasbro sent out more wave 1 cases just after xmas. We got atleast 4 or 5 of these cases here which made getting the new stuff was going to take longer, but i've been seeing 70's BB and the rest of wave 1 like mad around here. SOOOO many barricades its unreal.

    Congrats, I saw a 74 myself last week and was surprised. Hope it goes to someone who really missed it the first time.

    the first run had that issue. i returned my wifes and got her a new one that works fine, though if i had known how hard it woulda been to find a bumblebee, i woulda just bought her a new one and sold the other one to someone who keeps their stuff in robot mode.

    I see the '74 and CC quite often still in NC. Now, Barricade's a different story. The Premium version will be out soon.

    A local Wal-Mart had at least six of these Bumblebees last week... I guess they found some old assortments at the bottom of their distribution center and unpacked them all at once, or something. Some Brawls were in there too.

    Ebay:
    The allspark blue doesn't look too good on the premium in my opinion. Still seeing a lot of the barricade battle packs around here at target. I still can't believe how much they are charging for those. If you buy a scout (or any other toy over $5.01) with the battle pack and use the $5 coupon then it makes the barricade $15 with movie figures which is a reasonable price.

    There's no allspark blue on the premium version, instead it's a metallic grayish-blue.
