    Several board members for Illinois, including myself have sighted Voyager-class Optimus Prime at Toys 'R Us. If you're worried about finding him, you'll probably need not worry. All reports thus far is that each store has had tons of each. The Schaumburg, IL TRU alone had at least 20 of each Prime and Megatron. They seem to be shipping in their own assortment. Pic coming soon (UPDATE: See pic below).

    Thanks also go to Jason Blue Boost and madman1366 for their Illinois sightings as well.

    Cool. Here's hoping the G1 repaint voyager wave is not too far behind. And I'll never get over how much Tim Formas sounds like Transformers when I say it in my mind.

    Same mold sans metallic silver paint. He has a darker blue paint app and less flames, and lacks the silver lining around the eyes.

    good to hear that they are shipping with Megs, cuz I already have the robo-vision Prime, but still want voyager Megs. Hope they actually stock them for a change!

    The Robo-vision will hold me over until the G1 repaint which looks surprisingly good.

    Voyager Prime is a great mold. I like him even better that the Leader one. Maybe if I see this double-packed with the concept BB, I'll pick him up. I'm definite hoping on a Magnus and/or Nemesis repaint of this one. It just might be my favorite mold in the entire movie line.

    Is this the one with the little spring-loaded driver? If so, I saw this about a month ago at a Zellers store in Ottawa. Not sure if that's news to anyone. I didn't buy it but it was the only one they had.

    He's been known to be out in Canada for quite some time (Megatron popped up there first as well). Him being out in the US is news, however.

    Ah. Well, I don't take the hobby quite as seriously as I used to so if it's not news, so be it.

    Wave 1 of the Robot Replicas (Megs, BB, Barricade) have been out in the US for about a month now. So yes, they're here.

    He's still quite hard to find in Canada (or at least western Canada) since TRU isn't stocking him yet. Now that TRU USA has him he should be plentiful here soon. Yay!
