    TFTM Scorponok Found @ Retail - PICS

    Hello there. Long time lurker, first time poster. :thumb 

    I stopped by the Bedford, Ohio Target this afternoon. They had all the usual stuff, including a few dozen of Movie Preview OP and SS. However, I glanced below the Protoforms and stacked on the shelf were Movie Bumblebee, Jazz and Scorponok! This is the first I know of Scorpy being found at retail, and at least the third sighting of Movie Deluxe toys in the Buckeye State. Pics of the receipt and toys are a few posts down.

    And now, the proof:

    Too cool to be Bumblebee

    Jazz at his awesomest

    Scorponok's "robot mode"

    The whole posse

    Look what Scorpy found

    Scorponok doesn't deserve all the hate. Sure, the robot mode is cheap, but the scorpion form looks great (IMO) and has lots of playability. Jazz is still my favorite, though, and Barricade is the only Deluxe I can see dethroning him.

    Happy hunting! :D

    Just saw all three, plus BRAWL, being sold on Ebay by someone in Italy! They were on European cards, so I guess even some continental shopkeeper is being a bit premature.

    I'm glad some people will be buying Scorpy so he doesn't clog shelves for toys like Jazz and Bee.

    I suppose the fines for early release are very cheap - if there are any lol

    roffles to what Scorpy found :lol 

    Now...what I would really like to see - besides the figures in stores - is some pics of the Movie figures in kickass poses - it seems all the pics that are popping up just have them standing there. I fear I am beginning to doubt their articulation....

    I've noticed that, for some reason, transformers toy release dates end up being more of a sugestion than a set in stone timeline, while star wars and spiderman tend to be released on the tick, at midnight, on their day of release.

    Maby newer gen kids just dont quite "get" transformers the way us late twenty-somthing-ers did when we were kids. Therefore the ip just doesnt carry the same weight with retailers. Any thoughts?
