    I found Optimus Maximus this morning at the K-Mart in Penn Station, New York City. They had 4 on the shelf (above their otherwise anemic Transformers selection). Sorry for the crappy picture. For those looking, it rings up as TRA MOVIE ST, with a code of 65356974408. Retail price was $36.49.

    Happy hunting.

    It's good to see stuff finally coming out, although I'm passing on this one.

    While its nice to see new stuff out (I saw the Jackhammer and Driller yesterday), when it comes to Optimus Maximus, I'm the opposite of interested.

    I think this will be $29.96 at Walmart and $29.99 at Target. I may be wrong however and the price will be $34.96 at Walmart and $34.99 at Target.

    Kmart always prices everything on the HIGH SIDE

    Yeah, hopefully $30 is the average price for this guy.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I'm buying this sucker on-sight.

    It is! The toy has huge hollow areas that are kind of weird in robot mode, esp when you put cyberverse figs into em.

    Not really interested in this or the Bee battlesuit thing. Wheeljack's Starhammer and Knockout's Energon Driller both make more sense (and I bought both the other day) but this thing and Bee's just don't to me, though I'm sure kids may like it more.

    I found him in my local Kmart as well. Nicer than some might expect. Thanks Bulkhead.

    I have plenty of Cyberverse Autobots with nothing to do, so this will at least give them something to do while they sit on my shelf. No way I was going to pay $100 for it, but I can swallow the $30 for it.

    Funny that this is a news story today cause I actually saw him in a store today!

    I won't be getting him cause of the flaws that have been pointed out in reviews, but I will say that the size was impressive in person.
