    Colorado strikes again!!!!! I found both at 2 different Walmarts today in Colorado (the two around the Park Meadows area off Arapahoe Rd and off Quebec). Well, one had them out and the other had the box full of Voyager class Universe figures sitting there waiting to be put out. Good hunting!

    edit: here's the pic

    edit2: i forgot to mention this earlier, but universe/classics heavy load and blaster both came with coupons for 10% over at hasbrotoyshop.com for any transformers purchase. just thought people would be interested in finding out

    Wow, cool! So are they inside the boxes packed with the instructions, or is there a way to tell if the boxes in the store have them?

    they are inside with the instructions. i was also informed on another forum that the same coupons are with the wave 3 animated deluxes, but somehow those have yet to hit anywhere around me

    Totally getting Blaster.

    Don't know why they didn't take they Cybertron Quickmix mold and repaint it into G1 Quickmix. His minicon could even be used as a Targetmaster. Would've been way more Classic like that.

    The original was already sort of a homage to G1 Quickmix.

    Sorta.... Cybertron Quickmix was orange and yellow. But G1 was red and white. A repaint in those color would've sold that mold in the Universe line for me.

    If I ever get off my ass and start customizing, that's my first choice.

    All of the other voyager repaints I plan on picking up though!

    I think Blaster and Blades are the only two re-paints from this line worth getting. I can see Heavyload and the rest shelf warming till they go on sale..... especially with new molds like Silverbolt and Onslaught around the corner.
