    So Superion is out at Target, but Bruticus isn't?

    Do we have any more specific information? I read somewhere that Bruticus allegedly wouldn't come out until September?

    that's what we've heard so far, I beleive someone at Botcon said so ( don't quote on that though I heard it from a third party ).
    Can't wait for him, already own Superion.

    I think they are trying to keep from being over saturated. Better to wait a month or so than have to sell them at $5 on clearance because everyone spent their money on the ROTF figs launch.

    Most Targets don't even have Superion on shelves. They have him, and they even have a sign saying "Exclusive Superion combiner figure!" but he's not there. So they will probably go on clearance, because no one buys them because many people don't even know it exists.

    ^Something like that. Some Targets put him out early, some just have a ton of him in the back. The DPCI is for a combiner assortment. BASICALLY, Superion is Wave 1 (official release sometime in June), and Bruticus is Wave 2.

    That's good to know. I was beginning to worry about Target and their status with exclusives. Based off that sunstorm/shockwave debacle...

    And yeah. No superion here yet either.

    There were 10 ROTF Superion at end cap of a Target (Elmhurst, NY). Just picked up 2 x ROTF Superion from a Target this afternoon. It was not there last weekend.

    There are now 7 more, someone else picked up 1.

    *waits for Bruticius, so Superion can have a playmate*

    That would sorta explain why my local store has filled the shelf space which isn't jammed up with the ROTF Wave 1 figures with Superions.....

    I don't mind waiting a bit for Bruticus. I want both, but this has been an expensive month!

    He's in Zellers out in Canuckland, and when I found him, he was stuffed way up on the top shelf, hidden behind some Animated Blurrs. Not just one, but like 5 of him (So I doubt it was a collector stashing him away).

    Looking forward to when my FansProject add on parts come. I hope they do similar kits for Bruticus and Devastator.

    I'm waiting for Bruticus and passing on Superion. I don't really have enough for both, and Bruticus seems more interesting in his individual bot modes.

    good to know. I already have superion and he's not different enough from rotf to make me want him again. I did buy 2 walmart devastators so I could repaint one and have all green limbs for the other...

    bruticus will be mine
