    As reported by the Allspark's Mouth.

    http://www.allspark.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=2149

    Just as a reminder, the repackages are:

    Deluxe two-packs:
    Drag Race Pack (Hot Shot vs. Override; seen in packaging before)
    Critical Path Pack (Red Alert vs. Sideways; seen in packaging before)
    Ground to Air Blast Pack (Crosswise vs. Thundercracker; seen in packaging before)

    Voyagers with Mini-Con packs:
    Mudflap with Shockwave & Tankor (see above link for a photo)
    Leobreaker with Sky Lynx & Thunderblast
    Evac with Razorclaw & Steamhammer

    Each of these is apparently retailing for $16.99 and is supposed to be part of the Universe End Cap promotion that includes Bonecrusher/Scavenger, Long Haul/Hightower and Overbite/Repugnus.

    They showed up at my store Thursday night I think. I wish they'd done this sooner though, too many of the older basics are horrid pegwarmers everywhere I look.

    Yep, Laser Optimus found theUniverse cases among some backstock pallets Friday night when I wasn't working. Snapped a pic of them with my camera phone tonight.

    Great news. Maybe some targets will start to get these out on the floor early.

    Cool. Finally those exclusive Universe figures are coming out. It's a shame it's the Endcap thing, I was really hoping Target would pick up the Universe Seacons at some point.

    Great that these figures are coming out, now just to find a good on line store to get them shipped to the UK from.

    So... all of these endcap promotions are $16.99? Even the Voyagers with Mini-Cons?

    Sweet can't wait to get Overbite/ Repugnus.

    I'll definitely skip the Cybertron stuff and Devestator...I already have the original RiD Build Team. But I know a lot of people wanted Devestator so I'm happy it was released!

    I'm glad I waited to get Mudflap. I might pick him up now with the extra minicons.

    That's neat I guess. I wish I didn't already have all those cybertron toys. Too bad about the Universe toys coming soon, to me, because I'm incredibly poor at the moment and will probably miss them at retail. Too bad indeed.

    The timing is bad on some these toys.

    The deluxe 2 packs can be found at TRU (except for Crosswise) for 9.97.

    Leobreaker, Evac, and Mudflap are still on the shelves. Who would buy them at 19.99 when the bonus packs are can be had for $16.99?

    Someone's got to break open an Overbite & Repugnus - I want to be sure whether or not I have to break out the tools to switch the mandibles on Repugnus like I did on the Botcon guys.

    Heck no. It's bad enough we've had to wait almost two years for them to be released.
