    This is sort of a silly question, I know, but where do most stores put their Crossover figs? I can never seem to find them, and can't figure if I should be looking in the Transformers section, or the *insert other series* section.

    Also while on the subject: did that Ironman version of Capt. America's mold hit shelves yet?

    I usually find Marvel Crossovers with the Marvel stuff, and Star Wars with the Star Wars stuff.

    mx-01 archon pretty much nailed it: Marvel Crossovers are in the marvel section and Star Wars Crossovers are in the Star Wars section. And yes, I just saw the Iron Man version of the Captain America mold in TRU two days ago.

    I'm not sure about Marvel, but I think Star Wars Crossovers are crazy expensive. $16 for a Deluxe size toy? No dice.

    Thanks for the info, people!

    I thought they were bigger than Deluxe size, but I don't have any to know for certain.

    The Marvel Crossovers, at least are closer to Voyager size (the old Beast Wars Megas, at least, as a guideline). Varies from piece to piece, but Hulk Tank definitely outweighs many Voyager toys, even if he doesn't necessarily outsize them. The Star Wars ones seem to range a bit smaller, although they can match.

    The Marvel ones are generally beefier than the Star Wars ones. More heft, and sturdier builds.

    Has the Punisher Crossover TF officially been canceled? I thought that would be perfect to use as a base for a HumVee Megatron.

    Punisher himself has been cancelled, but the mold was repurposed as an Iron Man.

    Less optimal for a Megatron repaint, though, since it's molded in red, instead of black.

    Depends where your looking. Target usually has them, but it seems like they are always one isle over from the transformers. The walmarts around here didn't carry them before, but my local one just had a remodle and now they have all of the ironman wave. I almost picked up the Ironman humvee, despite having the captain america version. It's a pretty good transformer for a crossover. Also toys r us has been the worst place to find them in my experience. They have plenty of the star wars ones though.
