    Do the Cybertron repackages have new product code/assortment numbers on them?

    Five digit numbers, starting with either "8" or "2".

    I will have to pass on these. Can't afford a third repaint of the RID Build Team, even if they are dead-sexy.

    I think it's kinda dumb that it's only on an endcap and there's no indication of it by the rest of the toys ... but that's just MHO

    Ok, I'm mad. I looked at like, 4 different Targets in Austin, and there aren't any. I asked one guy about them and he said they weren't even supposed to be getting any Transformers Endcaps for a while. What gives? How is every other place on Earth getting these, and not me? I WANT THEM!!!

    Dark Magnus and my store in Brandon, Florida haven't set ours yet. This thing isn't a street date... it's a sales planner and some department heads are buisier than others. It really depends on the store when the department head can get around to setting it. I honestly would wait till around Tuesday or Wednesday before I started going around to every friggin' store and demanding where the endcap is.

    So, no, they shouldn't start to "pop up" everywhere today.

    I bought the Universe Constructicons and haven't had any problem with them. They are awesome. This is how universe should have been.

    That being said, I really want the Buzzclaw repaint but not the shark. I would pay $10 shipped for a Repugnus if someone only wanted the shark.

    Well, I ended up checking the Texas Sightings thread, and found that one of the stores on the other side of town that I was looking in had them, so I went and got them. I didn't "demand" to know where they were, I asked one guy at one store, politely. I've worked at a grocery store the last 7 years, I know how things are and I always treat people respectfully. I just get frustrated when I want something and can't have it now now now :p

    I definitely don't want to miss those Universe figures. I missed the Nemesis Prime Target exclusive before them. Hopefully they'll have enough in stock at some point so that I can grab them.
