    Anyone really know? I'm referring to the DLX version of this DOTM character, not the Human Alliance.

    A lot of us are more concerned about the release of Wheeljack and Soundwave (believe me, I am concerned as well), but I haven't seen any mention of this guy at all. I know he is set to be a Target exclusive along with other versions of him, and that he will be in a 2-pack with a Topspin recolor as Twintwist.

    Have we heard anything regarding this set's release date? Will it be around the same time as DLX Wave 6?

    Any information you can supply will be greatful, whether it be old or new.

    Did we ever hear of a release date though? Also, are the paint jobs on the Japan and US release different? Like, will hood sport the Target logo for the US version?

    As far as we know its going to, being a Target Exclusive and all.

    However, though we've seen Target Leadfoot, nothing at all has turned up about Twintwist.

    Ebay:
    Hasbro just announced they cancelled the figure due to yet another thread being created that is exactly the same as dozens of others. They are melting down the molds to use for more Bumblebee figures. Thanks a lot.

    I'm pretty sure the same press release also said that we only get two more "where is Dino/Mirage" and/or "where is Que/Wheeljack" threads before Hasbro cancels those figures too.

    Actually, from a retail point of view, this is INCREDIBLY smart.

    You have a figure everyone wants. You also have pegs with older figures. Do you

    a) Put the new figure out before christmas, ensuring it sells quickly and only it?

    b) Wait till after christmas, during the normal toy slump, so you can sell off your left over stock now and then get a bust in Winter?

    But I have not seen many Leadfoot threads, to be honest.
