    Theres no telling, it being a summer release, they can hit anytime and anywhere, most likely, not till the next month around here.

    I didn't realize the 22nd was a Sunday. Sadly, this means that most of the stores around here probably won't have animated out until Monday at the earliest.

    The Movie line came out on a Saturday, so there's no reason to believe that a Sunday will change the release situation for these guys.

    Most retail stores won't set early unless approved by Hasbro. They face penalties such as not getting future new releases until after mass market release dates. Some stores will even have blocks on the registers not allowing the sale to go through until the date. For the most part, unless you have an avid fan working at a retail store (like me), they won't see the light of day until monday when they do modular resets.

    Totally agree...but there's always one Target or WalMart (etc...) that either doesn't know -or care- about the Hasbro policy and puts them out anyway. Maybe they feel that they are in a small out of the way suburb where the Hasbro Mafia can't touch them :tongue:

I've also seen black arachnia/ratchet/prowl & a big ass Bulkhead for sale at these stores too. All in huge abundance. Where are you guys shopping?

    Yes I thought it was ironic that Canada got them a little over a month befor the U.S. this time around. I already have most of wave one except for Bulkhead (waiting for the Leader class) and Cybertron Megs (haven't seen him yet) or the two pack (which I don't even want...... except for that axe!!)
