    I do not know if this is news, but did not see anything else about it. I was just at our local TRU here in Frederick, MD and they were unpacking

    Megatron
    Deluxe Bumblebee
    Prowl
    Mirage
    Basic Bumblebee

    I only bought the Megatron/Bumblebee myself.

    Kind of upset this did not fall under TRU's TF sale, but thems the breaks

    That was my case with the manager. I pointed out had they known Hasbro was moving up the release date, they might have listed building sets in the sale lingo as well, but it should still fall under either action figures or role play, or at least accessories

    Hasbro's missing a trick not blind boxing the mini figures ala Lego, Mega Blocks Marvel and Character Building Doctor Who.

    While they were not out yet, the boxes were on the side of the Legos, and the employee who helped me look for others made it sound like they were going to mixed in with the Mega Bloks area

    Bit of warning for those heading to the stores to get them. Make sure the boxes are factory sealed when you buy them!!!!

    I just cracked open the Megatron box, and the Kre-Ons are packaged INDIVIDUALLY, so someone could buy it, or even do it right there in the store, and remove just the figures!
