    this was posted a while back. A lot of members jumped on that, and now its out of stock.

    I ordered mine from there a day ago. Its now shipping to local walmart for pick up.

    They actually had them in stock already? Wow. I'll definitely have to keep my eye on that link. Thanks for the clarification.

    Still, does anyone know what the "retail" price on the SDCC version is supposed to be?

    Assuming this is gonna be the in-store price as well it isn't too bad. I didn't jump on it cause I am waiting to see if I can get the SDCC version. Not gonna be too happy if that one is significantly more expensive.

    they were in stock for a big part of yesterday, and a lot of people here brought them. It was free shipping to home (standard) or to store, and with tax it came out to 70.86 or something for me.

    Some one screwed up. Listed price wrong and some of us were able to jump on it. Lucky for me, I was one of them.

    This is hideous and disturbing of Hasblow to give the fans an imitation of what it should have been a Jetwing OP as seen in the movie!

    Just for fun, your first comments about the toy... :p 

    wtf is that? THAT's the combined mode?

    It just looks like the trailer opens like a banana and plugs into optimus. 2 flaps to the legs, 2 flaps to the arm, and 4 flaps make him looks like a flat x-wing. He doesn't look very posable. "intergration with mechtech" seems to be like unicron's "arm him with 20+ minicrons". I don't know if this will be the case, but it looks like it from the pictures. I normally don't skip out on a prime... but this one is hard to swallow, especially at that price.

    Prime doesn't combine with his trailer in the movie, the jetpack is a separate unit. This toy is a completely different thing that doesn't appear in the movie.
