    Why did Universe Ultra Bruiticus Never make it to stores?

    Why did it never make it to stores? i was always looking for one and I was about to buy one from HTS when it went out of stock..... I always wondered why it never was out in the U.S. Stores. I know atleast a portion of it was because the line was ending.

    So if it didn't never make it to stores, that must mean they're in stores now? :lol 

    I think they're supposed to be released after superion.

    If we're talking about the Ultra Predacon Bruticus, its because he was a tail-end of the line figure and a lot of stores never receive the last wave of stuff like that.

    If we're talking about the ROTF/Universe Energon Bruticus Maximus repaint, he's in the second wave of combiners and hasn't hit shelves stateside yet.

    The Ultras shelfwarmed for a while. Most stores probably passed on him because it would have been a repaint wave (Stormcloud, Bruticus). Probably the same reason Target changed from the Infernox2/Vectorx2 wave to the Infernox2/Overload/Leo Prime wave. More variety, new head and all.

    A bitter question would be why the demand and supply of the Legends were so crappy since they were all new molds and sold fairly well. And no, that's not a mistype.

    Stupid last wave syndrome.

    I didn't want this repaint anyway, they should've gave him Hun-grr colors.
