    This has been mentioned in a few of the sightings threads, but I don't know if it's been front paged yet. I saw them myself over the weekend at a local TRU along with Startosphere.

    I found these yesterday at walmart (marked as a walmart exclusive product), making them probably the first TRU's exclusives sold in Mexico.

    Didn't know these weren't out in the US yet. :eek:  I'm not interested in either of those figures but definitely not interested in the $50 CAD price tag that they're asking for over here. :p

    $35 for toys that were originally worth $30+tax does seem kinda unfortunate... but they're still the main toys I want from the movie line

    I had them in my hands, but the yellow paint on Whirl made me put them back. Very sloppy. I have to limit my purchases this time around. Running out of space!

    I went through about 20 of them at TRU to find one with good paint apps. I only found two out of the bunch that I would have purchased, I picked one of them up. Whirl is great figure for that mold.

    I still want Bludgeon. but YUCK.... I can't stand that Whirl.
    That's the only thing keeping me from buying the set...I hate that helicopter mold SO much...and I don't know anyone who wants to split a set.

    I put my Blugeon on Ebay if you want it you can have it for $20 shipped. I bought the set for Whirl. I no longer collect decepticons.

    These hadn't been found in certain parts yet? Go figure. The first day stuff was released on 30 May, my Toys R Us in Ontario, CA had a bunch of these along with the other RotF Voyagers.
