    These toys are set to be on Target shelves by March 22nd, but as with any store exclusive, these items may be out up to a week prior to the street date.

    Happy hunting.

    Anyone have the DPCI code(s) for these yet? I didn't notice it on their entires in the Resources section.

    I'm definitely getting Sunstorm, but might wait for Shockwave to go on clearance; I'm not a fan of that colour scheme on this mold.

    Didn't expect it so soon, I'll keep an eye out for Shockwave.

    The classic purple looks nice on Shocky, but I think I prefer the show-accurate deco.

    Sunstorm, as always, is a complete waste.

    I might just get Sunstorm. Shockwave I'm passing on, as the purple color scheme sort of invalidates his disguise gimmick.

    Cool. I may still get Shockwave, but I"m not 100% sure. Will have to wait and see if I have the extra cash for him then.

    No interest in G1 Shocky, but Sunstorm is a must get for me. Going to be patiently waiting for these to show up in my store.

    You know, I (and Hasbro) was expecting more positive reaction to purple Shockwave:lol ! Anyways, must get Sunstorm, and maybe this shockwave (Not enough purple in my small collection:p !)

    I am happy to see Sunstorm back in the spotlight, getting some love.
    Anyone have any idea when/if they are going to make a Classics one?

    About damn time! I was worried this might drag out into mid-year. Now I know when I should start stalking my local Targets for Sunstorm...I wonder if that means normal Shockwave will disappear from there and I'll have to pick him up elsewhere or try online.

    See, I'm gonna want Sunstorm. That, in turn, will make me want Skywarp, a repaint I wasn't planning on getting. Shockwave, though...I'm pretty happy with the original release. Now, if he'd turned into a big purple laser pistol, that'd be different.

    I'm going for Shockwave and Bumblebee first. Shockwave's geewunny color scheme will be a hit I think, so I will buy that set first so I can get it, even though I like Sunstorm better.
