    Might be a test or packaging shot but was never mass produced.

    The thing is the only tests seen for indy never had the actual packaging so there is a chance we may see them. I guess we will find out soon. Also, it makes no sense to not finish what they have since they are planning on doing Movie Muggs.

    I thought the rumor was that Jazz and Shockwave had just had their release date pushed back to fit a wave of Movie related Muggs in. At least that's what it suggested here. I know it's not conclusive, but I've found the Mighty Muggs Lounge to be quite reliable.

    Most likely they will eventually be released at some point. The molds have already been made for the extra parts (since we've seen the test shots and now packaging), so it would be a waste of money for Hasbro to not release them.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they do indeed get rolled into ROTF waves, though I hope the packaging remains the same.

    Is that the first we've seen of Shockwave, too? Can't remember. In any case, that's the first I've seen of him, and while he looks cool, they could've made his left arm not so, er, flacid, if you get what I'm saying...

    The fate of the Mighty Muggs still confuses me. Aren't the Star Wars Mighty Muggs being discontinued from stores like Target and Walmart? I thought I saw that the SWMM's were going to be Toys R Us exclusives. If Walmart and Target don't want SWMM's, I can't imagine they'd want TFMM's either.

    Maybe the TF Mighty Muggs will be Toys R Us exclusives too. If so, that would certainly explain why entertainmentearth had to cancel their preorders for them.

    Besides Starscream and Soundwave, Jazz and Shockwave were the only two Mighty Muggs I was super interested in. I hope they get released.

    Looks nifty.

    If you'd told me HTS had shipped it...I'd have believed it.

    EPIC WIN!!!

    Sadly, their price is epic fail. $11 for something that has limited articulation and cannot transform, when I can shell out another 2 bucks ($1 less at ToysRUs) for something that can transform with very good articulation.

    If they were like $5 I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

    Woah, Megan Fox creams my pants!!! :drool: 

    Err..A Mighty Muggs version will look something like this?

    PHOENIX Marvel Universe Mighty Muggs Figure - eBay (item 120388273708 end time May-05-09 19:22:03 PDT)

    If it is, then I'll pass BIG TIME! :( 

    You meaning USD $11?? OMG! We'll gladly pay USD $11 for them! These Muggs are costing about USD $17.90 from where I hail & they're swept CLEAN off the shelves! :cry
