    What ever happened to the Target Wreckers Two pack with Leadfoot and Twin Twist? I go to Target every time I'm near there hoping it will be there but I've never seen it. Did I miss it or was it canceled or is it still coming?

    I'd assume it's still coming, though could have been cancelled. I'd wager we might find out more about it at Toyfair in February.

    No news either way. This subject has come up multiple times, and if you want expanded discussion, search function may help.

    With the DOTM push over, and "Movie Trilogy" toys unlikely to move the same numbers, it's probably cancelled.

    Selling a toy covered in Target logos may not be to the liking of other stores either.




    Store Exclusives don't seem to get much coverage at Toy Fair.(?)

    In part perhaps because toy companies tend to deal more directly with large retailers.

    Hasbro might shed more light on the Movie Trilogy line though, something that might include Leadfoot and Twin Twist.

    at least do the legends style deco and make leadfoot look more armored on target's sponsor pieces, target gets the logo exclusive.

    Ask again when leadfoot is released to target. The problem is that only leadfoot, question, and soundwave have been confirmed as trilogy releases along with a possible repaint of laserbeak into buzzsaw, who so far has only been shown on laserbeaks instructions. We are all frustrated with this waiting game, but be patient.
    It sucks though waiting on new releases when you don't even know if they're worth waiting for.

    The ones at your Target keep sprouting legs and running away when ever you come down the aisle.

    Don't think too hard about it, just accept that it happens. Some day the employees will get around to chopping off their legs.

    ...I assume you mean Que/Wheeljack. This is the first time I've seen anyone call him 'Question.'

    Makes me wonder if he's wearing orange socks.

    There is no reason to believe its been cancelled as of now because it could still be coming in the trilogy line. Considering the amount of money retailers pay to have exclusive products they will try and get it released.

    Also take high school english and learn some spelling before you call people morons.

    This isn't confirmed, and I highly doubt you have a source confirming its been cancelled.

    It could very well be cancelled but I'll wait for an official word. With the movie trilogy line on its way, it's probably been put in there.

    The Takara one is a diff shade of red from the Hasbro ones we've seen, almost like its painted.

    Variant collectors may want both.

    Sorry about the typo..
    Stupid spellcheck doesn't like wheeljacks other name ( kinda like most of the fans here) As far as mirage goes, even though I got info from a reliable source, word of mouth has proven to be insufficient evidence here. I believe ed knows what he's talking about, but its still unverified info. I wish I had asked him about leadfoot/twintwist cause I'd rather have the twinpack than just leadfoot. We will all know when news is released. I guess .... sigh
