    I guess Walmart didn't notice that these sold horribly at Target when they first came out. Good for people who need Clocker pipes for Hot Rod customs I suppose. Thanks for the news

    reason i didn't get them when they first came out was cause they were Target exclusives....the closest target around here is a good 30 minute drive...i only got that air raid, so i shall be getting these

    always wanted that particular clocker

    Would've been interested had they at least painted Storm Surge into Seaspray or something.

    Well this does tie in nicely to the recently listed "Data War" 2-pack that Hasbro Australia had in their list of exclusives. I'll pass though, have the target versions sitting on my Movie 1 shelf right now as it is.

    $5 says these are Black Friday toys. They use the same "SPECIAL VALUE" logo as the last 2 years.

    That would've been cool. I'd get a Seaspray repaint.

    I've already got all these from the first time they were on shelves, so I won't be buying them.... however, I AM interested that they are being packaged under the "Universe" line, given that they were originally movie-themed repaints. I wonder if their bios place them in a particular universe, or if they just vaguely skirt the issue.

    Since these Energon/Cybertron-aesthetic repaints never made any damn sense for the Movie line anyway, it would be nice to have an official justification (these sets' packaging, for instance) to lump them in with either Classics or AEC instead. Of course, I already display them that way... I'm not THAT anal about semantics.... but it would still be nice to have it made official.

    Well, for those who don't like these toys in the movieverse - a quick repurposing of these toys:

    Air Raid - Pre-Beast Wars Fractyl
    Clocker - Classic Throttlebot Freeway
    Storm Surge - Shattered Glass Seaspray
    Hardtop - Shattered Glass Beachcomber

    Actually, yeah, I already have Hardtop and Seaspray reprolabeled up into Shattered Glass characters, based on the TFCC text stories. :)  Hadn't thought about those other two repurpopsings, though.... those aren't bad! Fractyl is especially clever since, if I remember correctly, Skyblast was used as a basis for Terrorsaur's pre-Earth alt-mode in one of the Botcon offerings, right?
