    Is Cybertron offically over in the US? All waves shipped out? Seems like it is? Do we think stores will start clearing them out anytime soon?

    It's pretty much done, yeah. The toys will still be around through the holidays, but come the new year, we'll likely be seeing just a lot of the Classics.

    My local TRU is wiped out of Cybertron, and TRU is currently having a sale on the deluxes. My guess is that Wal-Mart and Target will probably have a clearance on them after the holidays and they'll be gone by Feb.

    Yeah, it's done. All the last waves are out and most of the stores are probably relying on using Christmas to clear them out so they don't have to clearance them. I'd expect to see most of them gone and off the shelves by the time New Years comes around.

    Here's hoping there are some Primus' left over after new years for the clearance isle! And from the looks of the TRUs around me, there will be plenty of Supreme Starscreams to be had (one store had 58 stacked up over head, a second had close to 30).

    Interstingly enough mud flap seems to have finally moved his way off shelves.

    Supreme Starscream is a TRU Black Friday item. They're knocking them down to $25 for that day according to the Allspark. That's why they're stocking them up, they're going to use Black Friday to sell the bulk of the ones still kicking about. If you're after that guy, that's the time.

    My only disappointment about the end of Cybertron is that we didn't have enough time to squeeze in a blue Scrapmetal. Oh, and the availability of wave 4 Mini-Cons. Stupid Sky Lynxes vs. Thunderblasts and wave 2 guys wouldn't go away!

    it's pretty much over in canada too. however, the TRU up my way is a cornocopia of cybertron goodness. things we've never seen before, back stock of past delux waves, 2 for 1 scout class, new loc figures and even tones of new voyager and ultra class fuigures. lots of cryo scurges, and even lots of alternators, and classics. only thing that we can't seem to keep up here are galvatrons.

    My GF/CYB line is complete, but I too will miss this line. I enjoyed it (mostly the figures) more than Armada and Energon combined. I'm sorry Takara didn't do all the Giant Planet Transformers. I like the cards that came with Galaxy Force. Small "Farewell Cybertron" party on Nov 25 as CN hopefully shows the last few episodes. :D

    Has anybody seen any Cybertron Hightail figures around Canada?

    He's the last Cybertron figure I -want- from this line, and he just doesn't seem to be making an appearance. I'm a little vague on what wave he's supposed to be part of (ie:what figures come in the same assortment).

    Here's a note for you:

    If you haven't seen the BW Primal/Megatron repaints in Cybertron, it's probably because your store has a lot of Wave 4 2006 still. That was a heavily ordered item because Wave 3 2006 sold well. Wave 5 2006 still is in warehouses and should be trickling through the Holidays probably well in to Feb.

    Some WalMarts haven't even put out Classics yet because they have so much Cybertron back-stock.
