Beast Hunters and Bot Shots Stunticons spotted at US retail

In possible new News, amidst some holiday shopping this morning I found some new figures at a Toys R Us in Southern California:

- Beast Hunters Wave 1 deluxe:
- Bumblebee, Soundwave, Wheeljack, and Lazerback
- $15.99 ea. (I only purchased Wheeljack and Lazerback)
- Wheeljack: This tough-as-nails outer space adventurer is newly equipped with enhanced beast-hunting gear!
- Laserback: Chaotic PREDACON rebel whose only goal is to scour Earth clean of the AUTOBOTS!

- Bot Shots 5-Packs
- Stunticons (Decepticon Dragstrip, Brake-Neck, Motorbreath, Dead End, Breakdown - The rebellious STUNTICONS team serves MEGATRON by causing chaos wherever they can!)
- Autobot Polar Assault Team (Mirage, Jetfire, Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Bumbblehee - the AUTOBOT POLAR ASSAULT Team ventures into endless tundra too cold for most robots to survive!)
- $21.99 ea.

Beast Hunters Lazerback Review here
Beast Hunters Wheeljack Review here

Good luck hunting and happy holidays!

EDIT: Attached additional pics of the Stunticons! (and the polar Autobots)
EDIT: Okay, I couldn't resist opening up the packages. And surprise!- major changes to the instruction sheets (first since ??), with a large, monochromatic spread, character shot, and expanded story (!). Images and possible SPOILERS for Lazerback's origin and bio attached in images. Also added a couple early shots - enjoy!
EDIT: Reviews are up and linked!

Could we get a good shot of that autobot botshots pack?

and how the hell did Hasbro manage to lose two of the stunticon's names in one year?
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

"Motorbreath" is kinda catchy.

"Hey Motorbreath!" "What's up, Motorbreath?" "Motorbreath, get off that fucking tractor."
