Our own roykop has found the Animated Autobot twins Jetfire and Jetstorm at retail at his local Walmart in Mesa, AZ today. The jets come in a two-pack along with an exclusive comic and form the symmetrical combiner Safeguard!

Finally these are showing up. Good to know they will be owned sooner than later.

I still need to track down a Shockwave.
Nevermore
Here's waiting for no-one else finding those for weeks.
Slimaximus
Damn my walmart hasn't had anything good they still have movie toys =(
Dupree
ugh i'll never get a break with hunting! lol
twee
Holy shit, make it stop!

But AZ, that's very very close to CA, especially SD CA. I'll check it out.
Depthcharge
Me want!
hutchprime
Finally!
Octavius Prime
I hope I see them before the end of the month. If so, I can use my McDonald's coupon AND a gift card I got for returning a duplicate AniSoundwave from Christmas. That'd put the set right around 7 bucks.
Nemesis Liger
Yes, finally! I've been dying for these guys to show up. Now all I have to do is wait for my preorder to go through. *excited*
G1Wheeljack
About time, can't wait to find these at my Wal-Mart.
all are dead
Well no break for hunting now... (Calls walmart)
T-Logicon

mirarage
Sweet!
Their in the U.S. at last.
Hopfully they hit PA soon.
Hopfully followed by a bug
and some bot with a sword.
kylash327

Smokescreen
I still haven't decided whether or not I'll pick these guys up. They don't look all that impressive to me.

Got the set last week, they're pretty cool.
alh77
I just wish they would combine to form FIRESTORM rather than SAFEGUARD. I keep thinking of soap...
GrimlockMinor
sweet very cool...ill have to get them...
megatronkicksas
Comico?
Autobot Burnout
Meh, I'll probably pick them up for the individual 'bots. Safeguard looks like crap
Anti Spark

DpoW

TreKain
Why arent these guys on HTS?? Is it exclusive?
TCJJ
They look really awesome when you see them up close but I reported a week or two ago on my own site that I'd already found these in New Zealand... They do look very nice up close though. A must-have for me, despite the stupid hands.
squawkbox74
Only ten dollars?

Very cool.
Laser_Optimus
Nice. Now if only my Target or HTS or BBTS would get these guys in stock so I can give someone my hard earned $20 plus tax...

I am gonna have to see these in person. Hopefully they look better cause I always need more things to waste my money on. I just don't know that I need more Animated Autobots right now.

*squeeeeee*

Since I first saw these guys online I've wanted them. Now if only my Wal*Marts knew how to restock a shelf.
unicronsupreme
I am pretty interested in seeing these guys in person. I hope they show up soon.

Well, keep in mind that Oil Slick was originally designed as a non-show character. Hasbro just had extra space and the guys at CN didn't even know about him at first (kind of the same reason why Laserbeak didn't show up in the episode with Soundwave). Not to mention... the show Oil Slick looks to have a slightly different design then the toy.
Sideswipe80
Come on Salem, Oregon!!!!
twee
Found it!

Thanks Grimlock Minor for the tip!

Man, today was a killer haul for me.

EDIT: Oh, and BIG FYI: they actually have the Twins listed on Target.com, along with a "store locator" function, but don't freak out when you see that your local Target has them available; they use the same DPCI as the Battle Begins 2-Pack.

I picked these guys up yesterday as they have started filtering out to the department stores here in AU. I quite like them sure the hands are a little annoying and the combined jet mode is a bit meh but overall I think they are one of if not the best TF combiner ive ever owned.

Though I will say that based on the way they are in the comic these guys are going to be a little annoying in the show.

The almost bug like cross shape is the official transformation there are actual slots which hold the arms in place for it.
megaxz01
Yea I'd watch out guys...

I called and talked to a Walmart manager who pulled up the item using the product number given on this post.

In turn I actually received an easier to use ITEM number for the product.

There is a problem however.

When they use the item or product number, it cross references 2 other items on top of this one.

Meaning if they say they have 6 of this item on the shelf, it (like Target,) could be pulling up the Battle Begins 2 Pack.

So if you call and use the number, it MAY or MAY NOT be Jetfire/Storm.

Roykop,

can you check the box bottom for the complete 12 digits code for us..
walmart's receipt somehow put a prefix of 0 and shows only 12 digits displayed on the receipt; so the last digit omits.
blackout501st
WOO HOO!!!! im so glad they came out. and in arizona! wich means they cant be far from san diego!!!!!!
