    I remember someone commenting that they were going to be exclusive to a particular store, but I can't seem to dig up the old threads right now. Getting a lot of hickups in the system when I use the search function. :(  But I guess that's what happens when you've got a crap load of peopel online at any given time. :lol 

    Yeah, anyways, I do remember someone saying that they were supposed to be an exclusive to someone, but whom is getting them is beyond me right now.

    It's the only decent figure frenzy will get. Not as if his Transformation makes any visual sense anyway, no way could they make a decent Transforming fig of him at a price point people would bother to pay for.

    No. All that we've seen of his is the front of the cardback of his packaging. I really wish that they would make a Blackout one, but, I'm not going to hold my breath for one.

    I would be surprised if they did, there's only five 'bots and eight 'cons.

    They're out at TRU in Australia. Bumblebee, Barricade and Megatron at least. $30 each.

    Even at a conversion thats still about $25 USD. I think they are going to keep these priced near Revoltechs (which I see at Hastings for about $20 to $30).

    I thought someone said Target would be carrying them. But I wouldn't be surprised it TRU gets them.

    Regardless, I want some of the major characters.

    As for a release date I'd say after the movie opens sometime.

    Uh, guys, you're forgetting that Hasbro charges double or more for all TFs internationally in most countries. They were revealed to be the price of Deluxes sometime a while back.

    Not that it matters a toss for those of us that do live "internationally", we'll pay through the nose for toy companies either way.

    I saw them today at my local Toyworld, so Im not sure whether or not his contradicts their status as exculsives or not...

    They may be spread out to different stores internationally, while being a store exclusive in the US.

    Blah...I went to try to search the boards for the release date...and the search button is gone from the top of my screen. Tryed tocheck my previous posts because I know I posted in a thread about I was told "Searching has been disabled" when I hit "find more posts by moonstreaker". WTF?
