    Welcome back older toys!! :) 

    When are these coing out? Sounds like a holiday push kinda thing.

    I'm assuming "GTS Skywarp" is just another name for "Skywarp", considering there aren't any other unknown repaints in the list.

    It looked to me like an improper break between Override GTS and Skywarp.

    While I still haven't picked up a couple of these guys, they'd need to come with a lot more than a one episode DVD to get them from Wal-Mart...

    Brimstone's the only one I'm interested in on the list, since I didn't get him the first time around. Too bad Snarl isn't listed too, but maybe I'll find him at Botcon.

    Any chance any of these could be repaints, like brimstone?

    Yeah really. I could dig a repaint of Brimstone in Energon Swoop's colors and named Swoop, and Autobot of course.

    And I still can't believe Dirt Boss isn't getting a repaint. Black with red flames and named Big Daddy would be sweet.

    Nope, these are basically guaranteed to be the older toys, and unless we see something from the Asia guys, I'm suspecting the DVDs might be seperate trays simply wrapped around the old toys like the Sigma Six figures from earlier this year.

    It'd be a good way to dump extra stock from earlier this year.

    I had hoped to see Brimstone get repainted into Terrorsaur, but we'll see how the minicon comes out

    This move is just stupid. I work in retail, so my judgement is justified.

    Walmart sells everything..we all agree...

    Some of us are missing Cybertron bots...and this will make everyones collection comlete!....but look to buy NEW transformers at Target ( i.e. titaniums and classics)

    This pallet will sit and sit for two months, then go on clearance, and we will all wonder ...WHERE ARE THE CLASSICS?

    Some guy that has arose to the power of ordering pallets has made a dumb mistake...resulting in increased sales with internet retailers...and I like it..fuck walmart...don't support child labor...support independant retailers!

    I wonder if any of these will make it over here...... The only one we havn't had released yet is brimstone. That's the only cybertron toy I havn't seen in the flesh yet.

    So disappointing. Will I ever see a deluxe Unicron? I hate getting upset about not finding what really isn't the best figure in the world.

    Hmmm...buy a DVD, get a free Brimstone. For that, he just might make it to my collection.

    All of the TF pallets I have seen at my walmarts in VA all seem to fly right out of the stores in a week or two. The big thing they help with is by being on a pallet, TFs are a lot more visible to parents going through the store than just being located on a few pegs in a dwindling toy aisle.
