The hunt begins, again! Manage to import the Fall of Cybertron Soundwave/Soundblaster toys, but were waiting to grab the minions? Well good news as TFW2005 boards member pscoop has sighted the first wave of Soundwave's minions at a Toys R Us in Tuscon, Arizona.

Have a sighting to share with your fellow fans? Swing on by TFW2005's Sightings subforum and share the love.

Hmmm... doesn't excite me.
Don't see a price. How much?

What is the SKU?
pscoop
They were 10.99 I believe. Sorry I didn't get the SKU. Had to get a pic before my wife left without me.
Soundwinder
... dammit. And here I was thinking I could avoid TRU for the rest of the year.

Gah, me too.

I'll be in Denver tomorrow for the hobbit, now I'll have a bunch of stops to make.
pscoop
I hope this means the voyagers aren't far behind. I didn't see them at this TRU..

LOL @ the Cassettes making it to US retail before Soundwave and Soundblaster themselves.

$10.99 for essentially two minicons? Geezuz.
Bossguy
Nice! Soundwave, come to me!

I saw somebody posted finding Soundwave and SoundBlaster in US. This was on hisstank though.

Atomatron

Yeah but here its essentially 10.99 for 2 bakugan and storage cases. Which is about the running price for such things.
Sky Ray
I saw these at my TRU today too, passed on it and got Brawl and Vortex instead, didn't see Soundwave or Soundblaster.

They uh, already have those. They even Encored them, and made Masterpiece ones.

I have to agree that these are overpriced for US TF standards. :/ Don't market these as Legends if they are their own special pricepoint 2-pack thing.

thanks for the info

Dont forget these were seen at TRU which is a total ripoff store so they are probably 2$ or more cheaper in other stores. Or are these TRU exclusives like everything seems to be these days ? I havent seen anything new in any stores in my area lately, just TF Prime stuff and movie crap.

Talk about throwing crap on the wall.

This has been a disappointing year collecting.

Aren't they just as expensive at Target too now?

It's hasn't been all bad, the Generations stuff has been decent, but it seems the good stuff this year are all dedicated exclusives, which are a pain to acquire.

I'm really surprised at the prices for these cassettes. $10 for two? Come on, minicon 3-packs were cheaper than that. Are we being charged for the energon-cube looking cases too?

I am wondering about this so called "Platinum Collection" mentioned in the latest club magazine, probably more exclusives to be scalped on eBay.
Autovolt 127
Cool.

10.99? I thought the 2 pack was supposed to be at the Legends/Legion price point?

Not buying would be better.

The two packs scan at Target for $9.99. The voyagers were $22.99, IIRC, but you'd have to check my old threads to confirm. I know I posted a new thread for each with the DCPI/Prices

TRU has actually been roughly the same, or even cheaper, for some TF size classes recently. At least in my area anyway.

Not really. You're getting a two-pack of "legends" for the price of .. two legends.
Batman
Even though I don't particularly like these, it is cool to see a Soundwave on shelves again with ejectable minions.
Anguirus
^ Indeed.

The quotes are the problem.

They aren't as good as Legends.

And if one is the equivalent of a Legend, they don't need to be in a 2-pack, and I don't need to buy Frenzy in order to get Ratbat.

If two of these = one Legend, I'd buy them all on general principle. Even if I could pick and choose, I"d buy more than I will, now, end up buying.
peaces
it's a real shame these minions are so terrible.

What wave is Rewind in? And who is he paired with?

He is paired with Sunder, repaint of Laserbeak/Buzzsaw mold.
