    This set is looking amazing, but I haven't been able to find out if it is coming out in the USA at all. Does anyone knows?; also if it is; is it an exclusive?.
    Thanks guys for the replies.

    Mass retail, should be hitting in the next month. Forgot to order myself a set before I stomped down on the SHIP IT NOW button after Protector hit my POL.

    I scanned the UPC at Target at $19.99. Don't know the official release date.

    I just got mine from Big Bad Toy Store today and I'm in Detroit.

    It's awesome by the way. I was surprised the matrix is actually metal. I expected plastic. Would have liked a little more articulation in the figures but I understand it's an older mold so oh well.

    It will probably start rotating onto store shelves after Christmas, to coincide with the intended shift to Reveal the Shield marketing (Reveal the Shield is technically 2011 product, the fact many stores have stuff out early is just a fact of life in retail. Expect leftover Hunt for the Decepticons to hit several areas in the spring)

    Wouldn't surprise me to hear of some retail locations slipping these out before New Years.

    The matrix is the same one that was in the reissue Takare Galvatron a few years ago. It's silver instead of the gold color.

    I pre-ordered mine from BBTS. Glad I didn't wait, it's a great set. Really like Cyclonus and Nightstick.

    I went ahead and ordered this set from Amazon which was $1 cheaper than BBTS and it qualifies for free shipping with Amazon Prime. I guess I could wait for it to hit the Target shelves but for a mere $2 I'll have it before Christmas. Yay!

    No probs. I just scanned at Target. I did not have a chance to check the other stores like Walmart or TRU to see if it is in their system, but it should be a mass retail release.

    Definitely getting this set when it finally comes out. I have the original versions of both molds, but That cyclonus looks great, and my roddy has seen better days. Floppy as can be. I could use a replacement.

    Would nail polish help with those floppy joints?

    Just ordered a set myself (couldn't wait for retail) and can't wait to get it!

    in a case of these kind of sets, it will shelfwarm like the bumblebee and soundwave pack did during the nest promotion

    i'm waiting for retail, since i have classics rodimus and cyclonus, i mainly want that accurate nightstick and that matrix (to give to thunderwing of course when i find the right chain to attach to it)
