    Guess I will have to check Big Lots for these. I don't have a K B Toys near me and CVS wants to much for them, if the ones near me had them. Now to get a few extra dollars for the set.

    Hmmm... I thought this was already known... although maybe nobody ever bothered to post it in news, in which case, congrats!

    Why are these things appearing everywhere except a place close to me...

    If anything this is a sign that KB Toys wont be getting any exclusives for a while.

    Kindasorta; there are potential pre-existing repaints of three of them. Sixliner, 'Con Sixwing and rainbow Sixbuilder. There's even the original original Sixwing paint scheme, too. I have the 'Con Sixwing, but wouldn't mind the original colors. Ah hell..gimme a 'Con Sixturbo, too...AND Landcross. :p

    Landcross, grandfather of the Energon Autobots.

    I've lost count of how many stores I've been in that could have had the Aerialbots but didn't, and I'm tired of it.

    Everywhere? I don't think they've appeared anywhere really. There's hardly any on ebay, and I've only seen like 3 or 4 people here that've gotten them. Sounds like Sideswipe @ TRU, just on a smaller scale.

    KB and Big Lots are owned by the same company...you'll often see some of the same stuff at those places...things that don't sell at KB will often get discounted further and sent to Big Lots.

    Some guys that post in the Ohio sightings thread have found the MM Aerialbots at a Big Lots down the road from where I work, but they're all gone now...and I haven't had any luck finding them anywhere else.

    I finally found my Micromaster Superion set at KB Potomic Mills Mall in Nothern VA just a couple of weeks ago. I have prototype pictures dating back to early 2005. That was some wait. So some KB's do have them. I've never seen them at a CVS though.

    Good luck...I got the ones I was able to scrounge (only 4 of the 6) at the ones in Newark, both San Leandro stores, Dublin (had nothing) and Antioch :(  I think the only one I saw that I didn't get was the helicopter (extra) at the Greenhouse San Leandro store...
