    Just a heads up, the TRU Exclusive TFTM Allspark Ultra figures have hit the shelves. I passed on Jetstorm (for now :wink:  ) but picked up Wingblade.

    There were 7 left on the shelf of each. Happy hunting, guys!!

    I don't think that's really pertinent to the thread. Seems like Aamoot point to me.

    It's Aamodt, not Aamoot.
    :lol 

    It's nice to get a confirmation on the price for these, but I'm still going to get my Wingblade online.

    Got my Jetstorm online already. No running around required. But it's nice to see they've finally hit store shelves.

    I kinda like the running around. The thrill of the hunt and all that!

    Meh, with gas prices being what they are and the nearest TRU being at least 25 miles away, the thrill of the hunt is gone for me, ah well.

    I bought Wingblade today but haven't opened him yet. I just know you have to grab these when you see them, and you can always return them later.

    I have a question:

    Is Wingblade some kind of repaint of an upcoming Powerglide figure? I really like Powerglide's character, but Wingblade's color scheme is awesome and he looks like a real military aircraft. I pretty much want to keep him, but I don't know what Hasbro is doing with Powerglide and that's a huge factor with my decision.

    I still need to open mine, the paint scheme is pretty keen.

    Yeah, I just compared Toy Fair pictures of Wingblade and Powerglide.

    They both look awesome.

    Sorry to ask another question, but how big will Powerglide be? I'd love something Ultra Class like Wingblade.

    Then you're in luck, Powerglide is also Ultra size.

    Looking forward to seeing these in-store. I'll decide which one (or both) I pick up after seeing them in person.
