    Located Today at the Ann Arbor Mi. Target was Sunstorm and WW Magnus. didn't get Magnus cause....who would. but got Sunstorm cause DANG it all I've been waiting for this color scheme since the Thundercracker mold first showed up. This is also my SIXTH first sighting and I'm hoping for once I've gotten to it first. (The other 5 times I didn't realize it was a first sighting or didn't think it was a TF item worthy of posting) So.....*Fingers crossed*

    I don't think you're the first to report it, but AFAIK, you're the first to post a pic w/ receipt.

    Oh, and I would get WW Magnus, for one -- and did. :p

    These are all over Cali since last week. But nobody here reported it in news yet. Personally I havn't seen them yet. Sucks that it looks like Target is skipping the G1 magnus wave.

    Was it ever found out if WW Magnus fixes the problems from WW Prime? I doubt this, but it never helps to check.

    Those WW seekers have always been tempting to me. It's a bit of a shame that we won't get the Skywarp.

    I never actually understood people's problems with the mold -- my WW OP is very tight.

    Once I got WW UM, though, I understood.

    So, to longwindedly answer your question: apparently not.

    Also, I'm still not completely convinced we won't get Skywarp. The Hasbro team seemed far from certain at BotCon when discussing what would and wouldn't come out in the TS line. At one point, they didn't seem to realize Primal Prime and Soundblaster were being displayed in their case.

    I'm not 100% convinced either, seeing as he's just a repaint, but it seems safer to stick to the consensus rather than freak people out or just confuse them. You know the excitable types.

    Thanks for the word on the WW Op/Mag mold, heh.

    Just saw them at Target today, myself. Hopefully this doesn't mean it's too late for the Fallen/Cheetor and G1 Magnus/WW Megs waves, but it probably does. Honestly, though, at this point it's hard to care about the Titanium line anymore.

    Also, in an amusing note, I saw the first batch of Halloween candy out today: the annual big bags of orange and dark brown M&MS are here.

    I love that WWI Prime mold. So, Ultra Magnus is really a great site too see. Also, i'm thinking of buying the Prime one just so I can kitbash it into Nemesis Prime/Scourge.

    I don't know for certain, but when I saw Sunstorm and WW Magnus yesterday, there was a WW Starscream there too. If that WW Starscream was in that case, seems like an odd choice to include two different versions of the same mold there. But then again, RiD Prime shipped with the Cheetor/Fallen wave and likely didn't want to overuse him too much.

    Looks likely that Sunstorm and Starscream are casemates. :/
