    An anonymous source has provided us with DPCIs from Target for the Revenge of the Fallen toyline. For the most part, looks like every size-class and subline from the first movie returns along with other new additions (Gravity Bots, Helmet Roleplay, two Combiner listings, Mega Power Bots). Ultimate Bumblebee seems to be coming back as well. I assume remolded due to the Camaro upgrade.

    Some of the new additions sound interesting. Especially the combiners, though I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with the Superion repaint and possibly the Bruticus repaint. Ultimate Bumblebee is a little surprising at first. I can almost garantee I won't get him, especially if he's just he origional one with some retooling. Some more helmets would be interesting. Depending on how it looks, I might actually get the Prime one. Would be cool to see Megatron, Starscream, and some of the others get role play helmets too. It'll be interesting to see what some of these turn out to be. Probably won't get most of them, though there are a decent amount of main line figures I plan to get.

    It's great that we've got the store codes! :D 

    Does anyone know if these can be typed into the item scanners to get a price on them?

    I think that the combiners are just Bruticus and Superion. I wonder what Power Bots and Mega Power Bots are?

    I think one of the DPCI's belong to Superion and Bruticus. But there's two:

    087-06-0146 TF MV2 Combiners
    087-06-0294 TRA Combiner TF MV2

    DPCIs tend to belong to an assortment, so Superion and Bruticus only belong to one of those. My guess is the other one belongs to that rumored ROTF Devastator giftset.

    For Animated, Power Bots was the equivalent of the Cyber Stompin' subline of the first movie. My guess is that they're keeping the Power Bots name. Mega, of course, implies that it'll be bigger than what we get in the Power Bots subline.

    Thanks! I keep forgetting about the giant Animated Bumblebee. Now they're going to make bigger ones? I'm not to sure what to think of that. :lol 

    I'd love to see all of Devastator in a gift set, so, I really hope you're correct about the second one. I hate it when they divide up the combining teams, and make you track each one down separately! Some call it the thrill of the hunt, I call it a waste of time and fuel! :lol 

    Next time I go to Target, I'll have to see if the scanner will recognize the codes, and see if I could get the price listings.

    Were any DPCIs available for non-movie Target exclusives such as the Animated purple Shockwave/Sunstorm with Activator, or possibly any Universe Target exclusives?

    yeah, i'm sure one of the combiners is TFU-in-TFMV2 packaging Superion and Bruticus (hey, Superion is in the movie, HE TELL ME!) and the other is Movie Devastator.

    Why no Ultras i wonder? Starscream and Blackout from 07 would ahve been a lot more satisfying at at least Ultra scale, cramming them into Voyagers was really disappointing ~ plus i feel like Prime might be a better scale at Voyager too. (Voyager too small/Leader to large...)
    i'd assume something that uses Gravity as a transformation element ala TFA Voyager Prime ~ maybe simpler kiddified models?

    Doesn't Walmart list the names of individual figures in their store computer systems? I thought they did; if so, is there any chance of getting those codes too?

    They quit doing Ultras for the regular lines since it whas a hard pricepoint to sell with it being just a little bit more than Voyager with no special characteristics.

    They where brought back as a Universe-exclusive priceclass and it looks to be staying that way to keep its uniqueness.

    Yes, we likely will eventually. The usual leak for Walmart listings is a Walmart employee in the fan community.

    i'm actually really surprised they brought these back, they peg-warmed around here like NOBODIES business, almost as bad as all those accessories-that-transformed-to-weapons or whatever they were ~ the dagger thing is the only one i remember. I remember Target had them long after the cleared out everything else, and i'm pretty sure TrU STILL has a few Barricades...

    WARNING: Do not place Gravity Bots near edge of display shelf. Placing Gravity Bots near the edge of a display shelf may cause Gravity Bots to jump to their doom. Because of Gravity.

    Robot Replicas?! Sweet! I like some of 'em better than transforming toys.
    Specially the Bumblebee one.
