    In the past, what's been the average lag between general HK release and the first US arrivals?

    Sweet, these guys need to hit target soon! It will pry go in the same place as the Prime vs Megs two pack, since I think it just says TF Two pack $19.99 on the tag on the shelf.

    I picke mine up from xybertoys.com for $60.00 shipped because my chances of finding one at Target are slim.

    Their price must have gone up then because they now have it listed for US$62.51 without shipping. I think I'll take my chances at Target. Heck, I just want Skywarp anyway.

    as ive mentioned in a another thread, the 2 pack has unofficially appeared in singapore for over a week now, which i suspect are HK imports.

    Well, I pretty much haunt Target looking for various figures already, but I guess I'll have to be extra-vigilant in the upcoming weeks.

    Sucks about Magnus' face plate (the color), but I kinda like him and he's the only *obvious* G1 style voyager repaint. And as for Skywarp, please let them release Thundercracker as well someday (soon)! :)

    ?

    I've seen these on ebay for a few weeks now. By a different seller, though. They were in-box, too. Oh, well....I guess I missed out on getting myself on the front page. lol

    Btw, I still want this set so bad.

    Not likely. Exclusives get their own DPCI number (and hence their own price tag and shelf space) at Target. They wouldn't share one with a general release item like the Prime and Megs Ultimate Battle two pack.

    hopefully my targets get them soon.. the TF shelfs have been bare.. nothing but a bunch of classics minicons and a few leftover cybertron deluxes :/

    But i am definately waiting the arrival of rumble and ravage alternators!!

    I got mine from a HK seller on eBay for $68 shipped. Skywarp is an improvement over Starscream, and Magnus isn't bad either. Ultra Magnus vs. Skywarp; bit of an unfair fight though since Magnus towers over Skywarp and Skywarp can't even lift his missile launchers up :) .

    £35 well spent :thumb .

    They've been on ebay for a few weeks, but the story is the confirmation that they have officially been released. We can confirm Nevermore's theory, as you'll notice on that image there are store price tags on them.

    I need to change my pants. I've been wanting Skywarp since I first saw pics. Can't wait to get this.

    Now if only they make a Thundercracker too.. wich isn't target only, or anything silly like that.
