    Any one has heard anything or anyone has an informed guess?
    Thanks guys, i want to get it.
    Another question, do you think that it'll be difficult to get one once they finally come out?; i mean.. is the distribution gonna suck like when MP Starscream came out at WM?
    Thanks.

    I'm guessing they will come out around the same time as the movie based on there new movie line packaging. My whole area has been bad as far stocking new figures. I'm not sure if the local economy affects this but I have yet to see Universe Inferno anywhere. So I'm thinking limited availability due to the price and the area you live.

    I'm assuming the weekend of May 29th when the rest of the movie stuff hits.

    Ebay:
    i'd rather have the universe packaging, too. something subconscious about not having to buy an unwanted ROTF toy, yet getting one anyway.
    Semantics rule!!!!!!

    Hey torpedobarb, if you don't mind me asking, how much is he going for on ebay?, i can't wait to get mine, always wanted the aerialbots when i was a kid but could never get them where i lived, so this is my chance.

    Target exclusives are always the easiest to get, as Target stores have the most regular and reliable shipping patterns. Plus, this set does not have a regular shelf tag/space, so it will go on an endcap; probably with some space for ROTF stuff.

    I've never missed a Target exclusive from any line in the past five years - since they started running regular exclusives.

    TRU is second easiest because there seems to be less interested in thier exclusives (and higher cost) and Walmart is third since their shipping pattern is so hectic.

    One more question guys, does anyone knows more or less how much it'll be?, i really don't have a clue since i don't know the size, maybe the guys that bought him or the original energon one could tell me more or less how much it'll be.
    Thanks guys for the help.

    I got them from a guy on ebay who had just vacationed overseas. he had them up for buy it now at 50.00 each. I bought the bruticus maximus. he relisted superion and it didn't sell. I told him I would give him 25.00 for it. he took it. 85.00 shipped for both. I think I got a good deal.

    here are some pictures..

    I contacted this seller when I was looking.. I asked him how well they package them for shipping.. he said that they package it like a normal package.. no reinforcement at all. I said no to that... I asked if I paid more for shipping.. they still said no. I waited for someone here in the states to have it. I wouldn't buy from them.

    Thanks guys, I'm not too sure about bruticus.....maybe if i see it, but superion is a must have for me.
    One more question, are they releasing a devastator?....not the ROTF one but a reapint of the energon (if there was one, like bruticus and Superion are) one like these?
    Thanks guys.

    So the 25th combiner sets never released in the US ? All the ones I've seen on ebay are overseas sellers.

    I know, but I don't waste my time going to Target when all they are going to have is the movie crap which I have no interest in getting.
