    Found these at Walmart in Queen Creek, AZ tonight. Don't know if they have been spotted yet.

    I don't think these sets has been spotted yet. Is that grey or black plastic used on Bumblebee?

    Finally! I've been waiting for the gray plastic BumbleBee to come out. And now a reason to buy Skorponok! His weathered look and sandy details will fit in great with Premium Blackout!

    I wanted to get that Bumblebee until I found out that the premium version would have a battle mask. Now I will wait.

    I plan to keep the battle packs MISB as display cases. Already have the deluxes and I don't plan to open the box for the little figures.

    These to are new so I'll probably stat seeing them in a week or two.

    Nope, these haven't been reported yet for the USA.

    And a clearer title would help too.

    Pass and pass. Already got both molds and the $20 price tag is too much for a deluxe with little figs.

    Agree with you. I gave them a pass. Too much to pay voyager price for the packaging and little figurines.

    Not WORTH it.

    Uhh, I'm not all that interested in these. Already have them in their deluxe releases, minus the human figures. The human figures just don't sell it. As been said above, NOT worth paying voyager prices for.

    Too bad I just buy everything for the MISB collection. My wallet hurts some more...

    That's what I'm going to do - I picked these up yesterday - I didn't realize they hadn't been reported yet, but I did mention the sighting in my state's forum. They are a little overpriced, but who cares. It's only money.

    I saw three sets (the two pictured, plus the Bumblebee/Towtruck scene) at Target in Missouri a week ago. If we have them, the whole country should.
