    not sure if this has already been confirmed but I have picture, receipt and shipping box proof! :D  this was found in a seattle area target in washington state.

    the case assortment for the preview wave is 4 soundwaves and 4 bumblebees. the BB in this assortment is NOT the cannon blast BB but rather the same BB that can be found in wave 1. also wanted to note the street date on the shipping box "may 15th".

    Heh! I was there right after you. May 15 date also. These should have been on the floor. So it must be the retailers holding stock back.

    Yup, I'm thinking that target placed all the preview cases with the others and didn't even notice the 5/15 date. Glad you were able to snag that soundwave.

    In the U.S.? I don't recall hearing many sightings and certainly not any accompanied with photographic proof.

    Thanks for the pic, hopefully with this I can convince the guy who works in my Wal-Mart's toy section to take them out. He's a real nice guy so I'm sure he won't mind taking a look.

    Nobody in that thread is from the U.S. and claiming to have found Soundwave at retail. The thread creator is from Canada. Some UK people have seen him too.

    I don't recall having anyone in the U.S. yet report a retail sighting of Soundwave. The BB figure has been reported, I myself have one, but that is because he is included as part of Wave 1.
