    I just picked these up at my local Wal-Mart. Did a search and couldn't find that anyone reported these as released. That is, released at retail. I understand that HTS and some online sellers have had these up for a bit.

    These Robot Heroes look like a bunch of fun although Demolishor is nearly as big as Devastator.

    20 bucks for a few nice big Robot Heroes and a handful of throw away alt-mode figs.

    Tough to convince me to snag these. Just like the 2 packs that have been sitting on shelves for awhile.

    It's about time. Is there anymore 2 packs coming out after these or is RH dead now?

    Thought these had already been out for awhile I've just never seen them anywhere. I was wanting the one with Devs but now I look at it I think I'll pass.

    Ah, more shelfwarmers. The first two (Fallen and...other one escapes me) aren't selling at all in my area and I can't imagine these doing much better. No wonder Hasbro is killing off the Robot Heroes line.

    It's about time. I was wondering what had happened to these.

    Gotta feed the family, ya know?

    Back on topic... yeah, the previous sets were shelfwarmers nearly everyplace I went. This Wal-mart actually sold enough of them over Christmas to leave a nearly empty shelf. The next WM a few miles down the road is still overstocke with them.

    YYESSS!!!!! I love, love, love RH Demolisher. He looks great - as does the skidding Optimus that comes with.

    The Devastator is a must get. I could do without the human characters and the lame John Lasseter Cars reject versions of transformers but I'll get them if I have to. Devastator is epic!

    I think the only reason Robot Heroes appears to be "dead" is because ROTF is pretty much done.

    When the next TF line hits, I hope and pray they continue this character-ful, appealing line of toys with great designs (Marcello), usually great sculpts and paint.

    Long Live Robot Heroes.

    I am confident we'll see some War For Cybertron Robot Heroes later this year! Please dear god I hope so because I want a RH Omega Supreme!

    I have record of some random Robot Heroes entries that came from (I believe) WM's computer system a long time ago. Don't know what did or will become of these:

    Bumblebee vs. ?
    Optimus Prime vs. Bonecrusher
    Sector Seven Dune Buggy vs. ?
    Sector Seven Humvee vs. ?

    With recent word that RH's is drawing to a close, these may have gone adios.

    I actually like the big figures (Devs, Fallen) and a lot of the smaller ones, but not for $20. What I really want is the jet mode Screamer from the Allspark set.

    As the holiday season drew to closer, the Transformer aisle was depleting rapidly. One by one the Robot Hero toys watched as their shelf/peg mates was being purchased. Deluxes, leaders, and even Bumblebee helmets was taken home for Christmas. When the light turned off at the store. There stood the Robot Heroes, left on the shelves/pegs on that cold Christmas eve night.....

    Interesting, I'd just assumed these had hit retail last year and I just wasn't seeing them.

    Robot Heroes is (potentially) ending? I had no idea. I'd love to see the 3-inch Titaniums return as the teeny-tiny Transformers in stores but that's a personal pipe dream of mine that will probably never happen.
