    Hi everyone!

    I just learned about this, and didn't see it posted yet, so I figured I would.

    Here's a list of new Walmart computer listings for upcoming figures, provided originally by Zobovor of A.T.T.!

    Here's a link:

    I've highlighted some of the new stuff! :D

    Well Dirge was pretty much predictable, glad that everyone can now complete the Coneheads for retail(I'm considering getting spares of them since it's not always fun to play with fragile $80 toys) Stunticons & Protectobots are BOUGHT.

    There was quite a bit of puzzling over this the last time it was mentioned, alongside Lugnut and Strafe, though no-one was ever able to shed any light on it.

    If I remember correctly as well, some people theorized that Strafe could be a repaint of Mindwipe, with Sunspot a repaint of Skystalker.

    I have this amazing image in my head of Sunspot being a new mold satellite TF colored similarly to the Target Fallen...doubtful that'll happen, but hey.

    Firetrap needs an epic red and black flaming paintjob, whatever his alt mode is.

    wow thank primus I didn't spend the bookoo bucks on the henkei exclusives. I would be so kicking myself now for it.
    But I'd also think that the ppl who got the botcon exclusives would be a lil miffed about this.

    F**K YES. I NEED Classics Dirge. ROTF's version is cool and all, but the ability to actually get more Henkei toolings...and more new listings of new names? Oh, this shall be a GLORIOUS Summer indeed! I'm interested in that "Sunspot" listing, though. Could it be the Sunstorm everybody has been wanting, myself included?

    And what is this?:
    I detect more Megatron-worshiping to be had, and lots of POKEing I hope!

    Nah. It's the collector's who have paid $100-200 for them that should be a tad miffed (at themselves, mind you). I bet the BotCon market for these just fell through the floor. I'd say at least a 25% drop if not more once the information gets out.

    I have the whole Henkei set of Seekers (plus Acid Storm), and am not kicking myself for it. No regrets. :thumb 

    Glad everyone can get these guys at retail. Yeah, let's hope for Thundercracker and Sunstorm! I could REALLY use a Sunstorm!

    It's not Classics Sunstorm, sadly. Both my brother and my self would love it to be him though. Sunspot will be a Movie Scout Class figure, which should be priced around 5-8 dollars. Hopefully, Sunstorm will be made eventually; we're so close to finishing the set! :D
