    buster prime, TRU exclusive animated Arcee should make it before xmas apparently, dark skyfire preorders are up but it won't hit till march at the earliest. WST shocky and blaster are still yet to materialise.

    Masterpiece skywarp got a US release and rocks, MP grimlock is coming to the US in Q1 2010 (possibly) along with the dead sexy ROTF leader starscream. the new HA figs are pretty cool, bludgeon is good too.

    other than that you have about 70 million ROTF bumblebees to choose from, if you like that sort of thing. which i don't! :mad  ;)

    How much of these are in stores? I don't order online and sadly I have no Toys R Us here. How much is Skywarp?

    i'm in the UK and picked him up for £45, which is about the same as leader figs. i think he's going for around 50-60 USD but don't quote me on that.

    Skywarp is roughly $60-ish.

    Animated Arcee'll run around $10-12, but she's a TRU exclusive so you're likely sol on that one.

    Dark Skyfire, and the WST you're out of luck on if you don't order online.

    He is definitely worth it.

    I even prefer the overall deco to Takara's, though it'd be nice if it had the same kinda finish to it as the Japanese release.

    Animated Soundwave with Ratbat is also out along with Freeway Jazz.
    Universe Leo Prime (White Version) is out in the U.S. at Target only.
    G1 Reissues of the Insecticons and Perceptor are a ToysRUs exclusive and can be found on their website.

    Well I only have the molds for Jazz and Soundwave so I don't need those.

    I don't have a Toy R Us.

    Have you considered getting a prepaid Mastercard or Visa? With those you can order online and your buying options will greatly increase.

    I'd get geared up for rotf blugeon and the other nest figures in jan-feb.

    What you should be looking for at retailers now that is hot:
    -Animated Black Soundwave (with keytar ratbat!)
    -Animated Silver jazz (in case assortment with black soundwave)
    -Revenge of the fallen Voyager Long Haul (Sells quickly and is shortpacked, Fun Mold)
    -movie Legends Wheelie and Soundwave (have had a few sightings in the western U.S.)

    And masterpiece skywarp though its a walmart exclusive.

    Also this phrase has something to do with next years toy line.
    "Power Core Combiners"

    Now your in the loop.
