    So, I'm on vacation in Denver and EMTRatchet and I just found these two at walmart here. Think this is the first sighting. I'll post a picture once I'm back at a computer or figure out how to do it on my phone.

    edit: picture attached... didn't buy either of them, but i will eventually...

    I'll pass on Sunspot, but Firetrap is all mine when I find him.

    Saw these at my local comic shop last week, but that's not exacty normal retail. I'm curious why they didn't call Firetrap Roadbuster though.

    The name Sunspot just reminds me of the x-men character. Wish it was a new mold. Still... that Skystalker mold is outstanding.

    I wish I could find Skystalker, now I have to buy multiples of his egg-flavored brother to build a drone army. :mad 
    Thanks Hasbro for professionally screwing up distributing them and forcing people to buy them online at $20 a pop :banghead: 

    I'll probably get Firetrap too seeing that I couldn't find that mold anywhere.

    Damn, more stuff out already. Probably going to pass on both of these, since I'm happy with the original versions, but might get Sunspot if it goes on sale or if we get word of a color-coordinated Mindwipe repaint.

    At least Hasbro tries, unlike Bandai.

    For those prices, I will NOT get a scout figure. They should be 5 bucks.

    now that I think about it, I have only seen skystalker once, and never again. Easily the rarest scout I think.

    Found these today at toysrus, bought sunspot.
    Makes sense since many of them blew out during the scout sale last week.
    Why do people always want to blame hasbro for distribution problems ????

    and sometime it's a massive conspiracy by hasbro to screw up shipments to cover the truth behind the kennedy assassination, because they've hidden the truth in the serial numbers of new figures and if you were to get them in the correct order you could prove that god is actually a meatball sub. or else they've really just dropped the ball on distribution lately. either one's a good guess
