    Red Alert, Galvatron, Soundwave and Vector Prime? Yes. Excellion? No. He's part of the very last wave, and it's way too soon to see him already.

    I don't remember the exact time quoted - May, perhaps?

    I only have one LoC figure, and that's Starscream. And that's only because my girlfriend bought him for me over in New Zealand.

    I have never seen them out in the stores here. I read somewhere that TRU was supposed to start selling them, but I haven't seen them at any of the TRUs around here.

    Any of the seeker repaints are good, but beyond that... none of them are really exciting. Soundwave looks like he might be cool though.

    Same with me. I've tried a few local drug stores and whatnot, but I've NEVER seen them anywhere. It's kind of annoying.

    Wave 3 (Soundwave, Vector Prime, Red Alert and Galvatron) is out in Hong Kong and Canada, but the US release has been supposedly postponed until July.

    Wave 4 (Thundercracker, Sunstorm, Hot Shot repaint, Optimus Prime repaint) is slated for an August release.

    I've yet to see wave 2. The stores around me that carry them keep restocking wave 1. They do seem to sell well though, cause they have restocked from a complete sell-out atleast 3 times.

    I have to say that Evac is a pretty darned good LOC, his transformation is almost identical to the full-sized figure.

    I really like Evac also. The rest are okay. Nothing too exciting, but I think they're fun. They are as close as we'll get to WSTs in the US. I've seen them only at Kohl's. If you have one in your area check it out. They were $5 but Kohl's is ALWAYS having some sort of sale, so you can usually find them for a little cheaper.

    I bought Starscream when I saw him at Kohls. I have not seen a single one again. Hasbro needs to quit giving shitty places with shitty distribution exclusives. It's HOC all over again.

    Online is pretty much the only way to go with LoC as far as I'm concerned. I've never seen them at the nearby Walgreen's (it's been awhile since I've checked though), and while Kohl's does carry them, it's quite a long drive for me. Aren't these guys supposed to be showing up at Targets after they redo their toy sections though?

    Also, I wish Hasbro would release a troop builder set of just LoC Starscream recolors, just like how they made a set of just Star Wars astromech droids. I love that mold THAT much.
