    Don't know if anyone else has found Blades yet. Today I found Galvatron at TRU and Silverbolt and Blades at Target. Hard to believe these waves are going so FAST!

    Don't take this the wrong way, but... I hate you so very much right now. Damn America and it's getting-new-stuff-ahead-of-the-UK! A pox on it I say!

    Bah. Nice haul, dude.

    Nice haul!
    Does Blades come with a cyberkey or is the gimmick retooled?

    Blades still does come with a Cybertron key. It is hard to see because of the receipt but it is in the lower right hand corner beneath Blades.

    Nice haul, I saw Blades today but passed because I already have Evac, but I was really tempted.

    So, have you freed these from their prisons yet? If so, what do you think of them?

    I have freed Silverbolt and Galvatron so far.

    Silverbolt has a REALLY simple transformation. The instructions are probably about four steps. He is still pretty impressive and makes the "transformation" noise when you push his head up. The gun is WAY too sensitive though and I can easily see someone shooting themselves in the face every five seconds.
    I really hope some more Aerialbots are in the future and I honestly (naively I know) looked for pegs to combine for Superion even though I knew that wasn't happening. :) 

    Galvatron I am more impressed with than I thought I would be. Transformation makes a lot of sense and is pretty decent. The paintjob on mine is really good and upclose he looks impressive. I was worried about the size factor but once I put him with the other Classics/Universe toys he fit right in! My only complaint would be the kibble "missile" pack on his back. The good thing about it however is that it is on hinges so that you can take them off with no breaking or twisting so when he is in robot mode I take them off and put them back on for transforming. Just a personal preference though.

    Overall I think both are solid buys and Blades is being released once I rearrange some of the other guys.

    I got Silverbolt two days ago and I got Galvatron, Blades, Acid Storm and Heavy Load (gonna call him mixmaster) today. I opened Galvy and AS already and they're pretty cool. I especially like the head sculpt on Galvatron and the Blue paint on Acid Storm. I've got high Hopes for Blades.
