    Unlucky, dude. :( 

    But on my end, sweet! I can get the Cullen voice!

    lol Based on the title I thought you were going to stun us with a white Magnus repaint. But Hasbro wouldn't do that, would they? ;)

    Why wouldn't they all have Cullen's voice? And for some reason on that vid it still didn't sound like him to me.

    I might buy another one to get the cullen voice, I wonder if the voice changer part sounds like cullen too? Thats what makes it or breaks it for me. But the voice on the regular one sounds barley like prime and the voice canger dosent sound like him but it's still really awsome.

    not sure at this point. A lot of the sightings I've read have come from TRU, but people are starting to say they are finding the Cullen version elsewhere too. So maybe whichever stores got the merchandise the earliest, has the non-Cullen version?

    I think I found the Cullen one at Sears Essentials. My buddy picked it up, I rolled my eyes, thinking it was stupid. Then, he hit the button. I flipped out, and suddenly wanted it. I couldn't afford it right then, though.

    Later, I hear a video linked from here, that sounds like Cybertron Prime. I get all bummed out. Now, hearing this video, I'm thinking I found the Cullen one the first time. I only want it if it's PC, so I'll let everyone know where I get it from...

    So...........immediately after reading this, I headed out to my local TRU, Target and Wal-mart (all are within 5 minutes of my house). Hit up TRU, sure enough EVERY single helmet was there with the "Real Movie Voice" difference on the packaging. I tested them all and bought two (one to keep, one to play with, and Cullen's voice is AWESOME), then headed to Wal-Mart and Target. Every version at the Wal-Mart and Target stores had Gary Chalk, as did the first two helmets I bought this morning.

    I'll be following w/pics shortly, the TRU version is $34.99, but the extra $5 is worth it to have Cullen's voice IMO.

    Admin, think this is front-page worthy?

    Admins, check out this thread:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=135992

    Please give credit to ActionMasterZod for the discovery.

    I just purchased two at my local TRU (Wal-Mart and Target had zero of the Cullen version) and am uploading pics as I type this. I will post them asap.

    My guess is a ton of people will want this one.

    It was funny, I was looking at the voyagers they had (still was deciding what to pick up on a lmited budget) and my dad saw the voice changer and mentioned the real movie voice. Course I remembered from before that it wasn't Cullen that did the sounds for the helmet so I said, "No..it really isn't". He presses the button and I hear Cullen saying "transform and roll out" I was like....oh.

    Strange they made two versions though...

    So...you've spent $130, just on this helmet.

    Where do you work, and are they hiring?

    I spent $40 on movie toys, and my wallet is severely hurting... :redface2:

    Looks like a clear cut example of a running change. Hasbro probably realized a voice changer that doesn't sound like the movie character is a bad idea.

    lol, I'm taking the two I bought this morning back, I don't care for Chalk's voice at all, and it's called the American Express Card, it's a great thing to have :D

    Ahhhh....returning. Very smart.

    Credit card...smart if you don't encounter any problems. First 2 cards I had I was great with. Never went over balance, always on time with payments, paid more than the minimum. Then, I lost my job. Suddenly, those "no problem" cards drove me into debt, ruining my very good credit.

    Won't ever get another credit card, just in case...

    That's why I like AMEX, it's a charge account, so you have to be very careful what you put on there, because it's all due within 14 days of the statement date. Also, got pics finally, here they are:
