    Just picked up my set at the 24 Hour Wal*Mart in Union City, CA.

    They were on black cardboard displays that look like they belonged on endcaps. On the displays were the movie date release.

    The figures include the bonus movie poster and the case they came in said they weren't supposed to be opened until May 1.

    Kick ass. I'm heading to the local WalMart first thing in the morning to see if I'm in luck!


    EDIT: Nope. No luck.

    I'll have to see these in person before making a final decision. I've gone back and forth on these two for a while now. I'm trying to conserve money, too, so I may have to take a pass.

    'Bout time!
    These figures are way better than people give them credit for - I love the design, build and posability of them and the concept is both original & interesting. Give 'em a go!

    It's just the back of the catalog. And it's the post of the eye overlooking Earth. Nothing we haven't already seen.

    love seeing that second starscream purchase on the receipt ;)  RW says that the starscream one has some of the automorph technology in him. rotating the shoulders out makes the head pop up.

    hmm.. that's certainly a thought. I wonder how that would work in alt mode... it depends on his transformation scheme, cause if it makes the alt mode hodge-podge, then I wont do it.

    G1 colors should definitely work. Looking at it right now, I can't think of a reason why repainting him in G1 colors wouldn't work.

    cool. since there's no realism to his alt-mode, there's no reason he couldn't be in that scheme either.

    Let it begin, let it begin! I love it when new stuff comes out and the hunt is on.
