    I just went to my local ToysRus in Warwick, Rhode Island about 3 hours ago, and they had 2 Legends-class Starscreams and 2 Legends-class Blackouts!

    I had first reported my sighting of these two figures at this very same ToysRus in this thread:http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=154149

    I took 2 pictures of the figures with my camera phone.

    I've never posted up pictures with my camera phone before, but I'm trying to figure it out. It is a Motorola V3 Black Razr and I have Cingular/At&t.

    As for now, I've taken my excellent Kodak camera, and captured pics displayed from my cellphone. This is the best I could do using the Kodak camera's "close-up" function.

    Enjoy! And good luck to everyone searching for these!

    Bah, I saw these a couple weeks ago but thought they were already out. Of course I had bought mine from HTS before that so I wasn't paying particularly close attention...

    There have been a few scattered sightings over at the Allspark since late October, but nothing solid anywhere prior to that. For whatever reason, these have been delayed for a long time as far as the US market is concerned.

    Probably the same reason the new Legends will come out as two-packs instead.

    Cool. Hopefully I'll see Blackout at Target the next time I go there.

    Yesterday at my local Target (upstate New York) I noticed a mixed pallet of boxes around their new Christmas setup. Right on top was an open but still packed case of Tf Legends figures - sadly I wasn't aware that we were expecting new figures so I left it be (and searched around the pallet for any possible GI Joe 25th anniversary figs!).

    Interestingly, this Target has not stocked Legend class Tfs in recent memory, so it was strange to see them there. Later that day (yes I go twice a day :)  they were still not on the shelves, and a question to the department manager revealed that there is a big Hasbro endcap planned soon. I guess we'll see.

    Yeah, I've had the Legends figures for a week now. Found them at the K-Mart in Lancaster, PA.

    Never took a picture, cause I didn't think it was news, usually Lancaster gets things weeks AFTER an initital sighting...oh well...

    That's so strange... I've been seeing these at Walmarts for literally months now. Never occurred to me that they were "hot". Usually Canada gets everything after the USA. Weird.

    Yes, they've been out in Canada for months, and I personally purchased both of them at a store here in Germany.

    But there haven't been any confirmed sightings from the USA until a few weeks ago.
