    Original post located here. To reiterate: found at a Target in Phoenix, AZ. Address: 4515 E Thomas Rd Phoenix, AZ 85018‎

    I didn't already see this on the news boards, so I thought I'd post it. Let me know if I missed an announcement so I can delete this.

    Anyway, I found Flamewar, Quickblade Bumblebee, and Hyperspeed Wheeljack, but passed up the first two for Wheeljack. I've re-attached the images here, and am posting them in full in this post.

    Unfortunately, one of his hip ball joints is incredibly loose. I'll have to try the nailpolish trick on that. He seems to have trouble staying together in car mode. Oh well, he still looks cool!

    Gravimetric Blaster is the greatest name for a weapon, ever.

    Wheeljack is from Vietnam, apparently. Nice find. =)

    You know what's funnier? That if you wanted to pre-order this Wheeljack from BBTS...they are charging 10 bucks for him. Now, I'm not sure what Target was charging for this guy...but you can buy the Star Hammer with the much better looking Wheeljack for just 13 dollars (clearance at Wal-Mart). 3 bucks more, and you get the SHIP! lol Plus the swords instead of a lame (although coolly named) blaster.

    Hyperspeed Wheeljack represents my Makeshift. As much as I like the colors on the single pack version, The Starhammer Wheeljack is the one I feel represents him best.

    I love that they did a modern Marlboro Wheeljack, but I really wish we could get the accurate one without the playset.

    I'm pretty sure all the Cyberverse figures are made from Vietnam, Bot Shots too.
