    Transformers Prime Playset Battle Suite at Universal Studios Knock Out Energon Driller and Wheeljack Star Hammer.
    Very tempted to buy them but at 36.95 a set, had to really pass on these, and hope they hit major retail soon.

    These things are not out yet in North America? They should be soon if things happen as usual. I was expecting they'd be out there already as the Wheeljack playset has been out here for a few weeks at least, and the Knock Out set at least a week. Seems slow for the N.America release this time.

    Well, if I remember correctly, Asia and the UK got the first wave of Deluxes and Voyagers about two weeks before we did. That seems to be the norm for this line.

    Can I get a news credit seeing as how I put this in the California sightings about a week ago?

    Is it $36.95 for both sets? If so, isn't that a better deal than MSRP at your local store as I thought they were going to be $19.99 each

    The article says "Both are priced at $36.95," my understanding is that it's $36.95 each. Let's face it, if Toys R Us is hiking up prices beyond recognition (mine is charging something insane like $18 for a DELUXE), there's no way the Universal store is going to offer bargains. Plus I think I remember reading that the pricing on the "exclusive" (read: repackaged DOTM figures and one new figure) was even more expensive than TRU, like $20+ for a Deluxe.

    That $36 price tag is bound to be the TRU cost as well, which I wouldn't mind so much is the assortments at TRU were bad. If they got the newest waves in earlier than most, I would happily pay a little extra.

    Okay, not going to turn this into a pricing debate ^^"
    I'm a huge fan of Cyberverse and what it does for the toyline, and I love ships, so these two will be most welcomes in my side of the country. Just 4 weeks to wait.

    As are these cyberverse vehicles. I've only seen the starhammer so far but I haven't been looking in shops much lately. From what I've heard the drillers are out too.

    I totally saw those when I went there on Friday. Totally surprised me! I have it in my review of the ride coming up tomorrow or Tuesday on my channel.

    I was starting to wonder if these were coming to N America: neither BBTS or Entertainment Earth have pre orders for them up which made me a little worried

    (I was checking to find the case assortment)

    here's that California sighting
