    Not entirely sure if this is a first purchased sighting since there was no threads in the N&R.

    This has definitely been a bittersweet find for me today with the news of Shaun_C and all, but I bought the Optimus Prime with Matrix/Unicron and Jazz/Thundercracker Robot Heroes packs at my local Target.

    We need more of these G1 Robot Heroes figures. Seriously, they are the greatest. Must have Blaster, Perceptor, more Dinobots (in Dino form!), Wheeljack, etc. etc.

    A couple of questions:

    1. Is there any word on whether or not this is an ongoing series, or do we already know about everything that is supposed to come out? I ask because the front page new blip says "the last two Robot Heroes packs" which kind of makes it sound like these are the last of the series.

    2. Can anyone quickly list out the packs that are out and/or coming out, including the apparent US store exclusives? I don't know if I read it correctly, but it looked like that 5-pack with Megatron, Cliffjumper, Skywarp, etc. was a Walmart or Target exclusive... or something.

    Thanks!

    Whoops. I went back and did a little editing on the front page.

    1. No word as to how long the series will last. The two I bought today were the last two of the first/second wave. I say first/second because it was unclear why the first cases had two from a different assortment in them. If you check the back of the packaging, you'll see that the first assortment was:

    OP/Ravage
    Rodimus/Shrapnel
    Mirage/Starscream
    Grimlock/Shockwave

    The second assortment was:

    UM/Megs
    Jazz/Thundercracker
    Bumblebee/Soundwave
    OP/Unicron

    IIRC, the first release had all four from assortment one as well as UM/Megatron and Bumblebee/Soundwave in the case. No Jazz/Thundercracker and OP/Unicron.

    2. There's also:

    Movie Bumblebee/Movie Megatron
    Cliffjumper/Mirage/OP/Megs/Skywarp Wal*Mart Exclusive pack.
