    OH SHIT!! That is awesome!

    Inevitable question from those folks that don't yet have these.... "Any sign of Thundercracker or Wheeljack?"

    I guess the scare might be over for some folks.

    How come the wave prior has not been found at retail yet? I highly doubt this.

    Edit: I think this might be someone that returned there extra BBTS Warpath to Target for some money back????? Maybe?

    doubt what? That this is in retail? Well, he has a receipt. But, I find it funny the there was no sign of wheeljack... its almost like stores are not stocking up on Generation/ RTS because the of the movie line. Im glad I ordered this guy this morning. You can't trust Hasbro.

    I wouldn't be surprised that now that I have everything that I want ordered online, these things will flood the shelves. Not that that's a bad thing, I'm sure plenty of people were not able to get these online. And they should have a chance to get them as well.

    If Thundercracker and/or Wheeljack weren't there, probably. I'm going to take this as a grain of salt until we get another sighting.


    Kinda off topic, but has anyone found Lugnut and Grapple at US retail outside of the first sighting?

    Eh? I thought I saw pics of Wheeljack and Thundercracker in store. Can someone else confirm this?

    Nice to see Warpath finally showing up at retail. Those $25+ asking prices were starting to get out of hand.

    Who the hell in their right mind would return a highly sought after toy to Target? If they have the scruples to return toys to a place they didn't but them, then surely they'd just Ebay them instead? Are folks really that retarded?

    Ok, don't answer that question.

    I suppose that's possible, though it seems like that would be a pretty low-return way to make money back on something bought online, as opposed to putting it up for sale or auction.

    It's not that uncommon for stores to skip waves/assortments, depending on circumstances.

    Interesting that on the same day there's a retail sighting he shows up on HTS. Where were these guys hiding?

    QFT, took the thoughts right out of my head.

    Wouldn't have time/energy/sanity to hunt for it anyway...
