    I was at work today (I work for Fred Meyer in Bothell, Washington) and I found these!

    Sorry they're crappy quality, they were taken with my phone, but my store received 20 cases of wv. 1 voyagers, 10 cases of wv. 1 leaders, 2 cases of the FABs, and 4 cases of the wv.1 legends. I checked other stores and every store in zone 4 of my stores received similar case ratios, so apparently at least the first wave is going to be in plenty at Fred Meyers for release.

    And dont bother asking, I begged and pleaded with every manager in the store and NONE of them were willing to break street date on these, apparently there was a corporate memo sent out to all stores about it and something about a huge fine if we do.....

    Wow! FM also released the movie toys early in 2007. Maybe some of the stores will "unknowingly" break the street date as before.

    Is Jetfire included? He's the only leader class from TF2 I desperately want.

    Actually I was the one who broke the street date on those, litterally.... lol.

    I snuck them out of the stock room and bought the entire first wave about a month early and the TOY section head caught me on the way out the door so she put them all out and emailed corporate that the date had been broke, hence all Freddies could put them out, hehehe.

    Almost cost me my job, but it was totally worth it, but in todays economy I cant boast the same saying

    Nope, Wave 1 leaders are just Prime and Megs

    Wave 1 Voyagers are Ironhide, Prime, Starscream and Demolisher

    I did check out the FAB jolt, he looks like butt, but other than that I'm not sure whats in the FAB wave or the legends, I didnt really look at them since I dont collect them

    He really does look a LOT better in person, I was on the fence about him too but after seeing him I actually want Prime and Starscream the most right now
