    Yea. Agreed. Let's wait and see if a few others also confirm sightings in the area. Too many people do silly stuff to be first.

    Damn, was hoping to see the back of the box to see who the limb bots are that they're advertising with it...

    This is correct, no case like that has been listed anywhere. Strangely though, EE lists the case as 1x Scattorsshot and 1x Onslaught, rather than 2 of each. I am guessing their listing is just messed up, but will clarify once my cases arrive.

    You can see it the video review. It shows the box and you can see Betatron in his combined form.

    SPOILER... It's just the wave 4 Autobots :yuck

    I assume they're breaking up the sets because they're evenly packed. Entertainment Earth usually only sells complete cases so they don't end up with shelfwarming individual toys. They make an exception whenever a case has multiple figures all packed in even numbers. In those situations, they break up the cases and sell them as sets with one of each figure.

    In this instance, I think the listing is merely unclear in this regard.

    The typical holiday onslaught (pardon the pun) of items showing up that would normally take a few weeks/months longer to arrive.

    Weird that they would put new product on shelves prior to Black Friday. Probably a few cases of this wave sitting in storerooms.

    They've been rumored. Look in the Transmissions Podcast Rumor thread.

    i think the strongest rumor is that they were planned at one point but cancelled in favor of the more autobots wave.

    I have a feeling it is going to be as others have said: at first we'll see just Scattershot from people who had to buy both figures online and returned Scatter.

    I don't think stores will take returns on Scattershot if it's not a SKU they're currently selling/stocking yet. I could be wrong.

    I do hope this trickle is the start. By this time next week, we'll be drowning in Combaticons... yeah right :lol

    Target has one DPCI for all the Voyagers, and their receipts are 90 days long. Theoretically, I could go buy any Voyager off the shelves at Target and return Scattershot in its place as long as I'm within the 90-day window.

    You are correct. If the UPC is grouped you could probably argue and get it. Also, you could easily do a swap... probably without even having a receipt, depending on your cashier.

    Also, the UPCs have been in the system from MONTHS. Remember, I'm the guy that got the listings of Bruticus and Scattershot months ago... that news was from a friend pulling up the UPC from their store's database.
