    Ive found 2 Warpaths, that were packaged as Storm Surge. Is this common among this wave? I have never seen this many mistakes since the box misprint on Classic Grimlock.

    Same here. I haven't any mispackaging yet. Hopefully it was just that and not a quickie return.

    Well, I did buy a European packaged Alita-1 in a U.S. Target. Does that count?

    Folks:

    I read (on the Allspark, I think) of a Strongarm that was sold on a Sky Blast card...and then, a month or so later, bought one from the shelves of my local Target. Which I immediately opened, so I don't have proof...

    I've witnessed something like that before. While attending a weeklong training in Florida years back (Beast Machines era timeframe), found a Korean packaging BM Buzzsaw along with the American packaged BM Wave 1 basics.

    I think it's more common with this wave. I've heard from another person who found Warpath in Storm Surge packaging. Odd.

    no pics mate, i opened him...i got home the night i found him (he and jazz were the first two movie figures i found, deluxe class) and checked online, seemed like he was just a european figure (he wouldnt ring up either, so they just rang up jazz twice) so i just busted him open instead...

    I'm sorry, I just buy that Downshift/Big Daddy switch. Smells like a con to me.

    There's no way that's an accident with Downshift. I believe the owner or someone else actually posted a thread about it here. I'm just glad the thing only went up to $10.99. Definitely didn't deserve to go for more than that.

    The "Hardtop" is an absolute joke.
