    Found Reveal the Shield Optimus Prime at Toys R Us in Mission Viejo, California. First sighting I think so I'm putting it here in a news thread. Surprised it's here and not at Target like we thought XD

    If I did miss a first sighting, mods delete this post.

    How odd. The Reveal the Shield 1-Step Turbo Changer 6-pack has been found at Target stores in the US already.

    Could Target have maybe backed out of the intended exclusive and TRU picked it up?

    My thoughts exactly when I saw this on the shelf. Went to look for MPM Bumblebee, but found this by complete surprise.

    It's the DOTM Voyager Prime mold. I rather like that mold (because its so odd yet heroic looking), but not for $29.99.

    Does this mean Argos is the UK holder for the Primus and Infernocus subline and not TRU if this is meant to be an indicator?

    WTF to that. I actually spotted the Target RTS one-step 6-pack today, at Target here in Houston, so assuming its a target exclusive. Im actually considering buying this figure. Good to know... Stuff is usually a little more expensive at TRU, thats what i dont like about this.. i hope target does have it, place is like my second home!

    Excellent that it's in Mission Viejo. Been a while since they got worthwhile stuff in stock.

    Thirty bucks for a repaint?  I guess they are trying to make up for the abysmal performance of the movie.

    So, any further sightings, or is this an isolated incident?

    No. I thought so at first, but "Reveal YOUR Shield" was the name of a promotion while "Reveal THE Shield" is written on the toys' packaging.
