    I don't know if this is news or not, but it was news to me. Last night my local Target got in a case of DOTM Deluxe 2-packs packaged "bundle" style that I assume will go out on Black Friday. They will sell for $9.99, so basically it's buy one get one free.

    There were only these four assortments in the box, so I don't know if there will be more. DPCI# was 087-06-0299.

    Heh, if I was a manager, I'd photocopy the UPC stickers and "SPECIAL VALUE OFFER" stickers and slap 'em on all the Deluxes I could find in stock. Just to get 'em out of there.

    Yep. It keeps all of those Bees from clogging the shelves even more.

    I'll buy 2 of the four sets right now.

    The marketing genius that knows Hasbro has too much stock of Bumblebee and they need to get rid of them. These appear to be 2 standard cards bundled together... probably not a new production run.

    And unless Target has 'secret' Black Fridy deals, this is a regular item. Their BF ad is already out and this 2 pack is not in it.

    It's really kill 2 birds with 1 stone, too. Parents shopping on Black Friday we'll pick these up on impulse if anything because it's just there. Any left over stock is bound to sell as well.

    So is Deluxe Leadfoot going to go the way of RTS Rumble? I certainly hope not...

    I have a feeling he will Or he will be worked into the trilogy line as my friend in japan says they haven't seen high or nor low of Leadfoot besides prototypes being sold off on eBay etc. my hasbro contact says there coming there just really delayed ATM with them for a legal reason.

    Do you guys have any patience? I am sure Leadfoot will be out soon. Just because this bundle pack wasn't Leadfoot and Twin Twist dosen't mean that the set won't be made. If they could get the rights for the HA figure and the Cyberverse figure I see no reason why they would have trouble with legal matters for Leadfoot. Mirage, I could see but not Leadfoot. I am sure somebody will come across him soon and we won't even see it coming.
