    Perhaps Red Alert, Smokescreen, Ratchet, and two other repaints.

    A pack of five deuxes, that'll be expensive for an exclusive surely.

    I'd hope not, seeing as how Sam's Club hasn't gotten an exclusive deco since (I think I'm remembering this right) Energon Starscream VS Prowl, I would hope they don't release characters like that there.

    Here's the original source for this info: Transformers Action Figure Checklist

    As suspected, the Movie redecos will be Target-exclusive versus packs -- FREEWAY BRAWL: OPTIMUS PRIME vs. BONECRUSHER and BATTLE OVER MISSION CITY: FINAL BATLE JAZZ VS MEGATRON.

    Man, Target and Hasbro are really best buds of late.

    Yeah. I'll be surprised (and disappointed, as I don't have a membership) if Sam's Club is getting 5 new decos.

    odds are it's 5 of the TFU deluxes that will have been released by then.

    Universe Deluxe re-decos at Sams? Hmmmmm?

    Maybe a purple or yellow seeker in the mix (maybe both)?

    Maybe a US release for Ratchet, Smokescreen... or dare I say.. JAZZ?!

    Oh my... gonna have to start perving Sams when I find out who's in da set.... and maybe cancel my Takara version Ratchet preorder.

    Sounds interesting, but I really hope that it doesn't contain Red Alert, Smokescreen, Wheeljack, Jazz, or Ratchet. I'd rather them get wide releases. That and there aren't really any Sam's Clubs close to me to justify going there. Here's hoping it contains 5 figures that we would be able to get by themselves at some point.

    I might pick up the movie megs battle pack, if its cheap cause i want megs and fb jazz

    Might pick up the universe battle pack if the 5 deluxes are ones i dont have yet...better not be just sunstreaker, prowl, octane, galvatron, and acid storm.

    There's also finally a confirmation for the fifth wave of the Target Scouts (Gunbarrel, Reverb and Backtrack). I guess they will ship at the same time as the two-packs?

    If the 5 battle pack does contain Smokescreen by some chance, then I guess I'll be getting a Sam's Club membership. :D

    I help you out:

    Gunbarrel = Tank Bruticus Limb

    Reverb = Helicopter Bruticus Limb

    Backtrack = Lugnuts Repaint

    And Reverb is not to be confused with the OTHER two redecos of the helicopter limb we recently saw. :)

    Keep in mind the last couple Sam's Club exclusives were just repacks/slight repaints.

    I'm betting on 4 of them being repacked with 1 being repainted... (or 3/2, either way, I don't think it will be anything everyone needs to panic about)

    If that's what it is, then I'm gonna need a Sam's Club card. I'd so buy that.

    Are people worried that this sam's club set is going to be G1 re-decos of the 08 universe moulds?
    I doubt that'd be the case imo, seems more likely to be a bunch more cybertron/armada etc repaints.

    oh yeah...do we know anything else about those yet? or are they just in the random toys we may see someday category...

    or is it still just a rumor towards a bruticus box set...
