    How so? Majority of the CW Voyagers in 2015 have all shipped in at least 2 waves (Superion in Wave 1 and 2, Optimus in Wave 2 and 3, Motormaster in Wave 2 and 4, etc.). Onslaught will ship with a silver chest for his first wave and an olive one for his next. Kinda like how Motormaster shipped out with the old hips on his first wave and the new hips on his second.

    I'm not sure why there needs to be a running change on Onslaught. I like the gray chest.

    so if you miss the first wave you're stuck with the ugly brown? ouch. brawl needs a running change, not onslaught.

    It's a side effect of having a different chestplate transformation from the G1 toy. The silver chest is for Bruticus, who has a silver chest. The olive one is for Onslaught, who has an olive chest. A lot of people want a brown Onslaught as a standalone figure.

    I'd just like to point out that there still hasn't been a direct store sighting of Onslaught, and no additional sighting of Scattershot either.

    More than a month after this sighting.

    Not claiming it's bogus (no reason not to trust TM2 Dinobot), but the "returned online order" theory seems highly likely now.

    For most other "first sightings", there are additional sightings within days, if not hours.

    Just wanted to point this out because people in the sightings forum keep asking whether Onslaught and Scattershot have been sighted yet.

    According to the Target.com listing, Onslaught is available in Jersey City, Atlantic Terminal, Edgewater and Harlem? Anyone dare to check?

    Isn't it going off the Voyager ID? It says Onslaught is available at every Target near me, including one I was just at yesterday that was drowning in Motormaster and Battle Core.

    Yeah, their online system uses the DPCI -- that is, their internal stock number -- which is the same across all figures at a given pricepoint. It means nothing.

    EDIT: Comparing this to the Skywarp sighting, the price tag would appear to indicate a Target store.

    So it looks like we've finally crossed from "Somebody probably returned this from online" into "Hey stores actually know these exist now!"

    ....Was there ever a Shockwave sighting in the US?

    RID Legion Drift, Windblade, Thunderhoof, Clampdown Scrap that, they were just sighted yesterday.
    RID Mini-Con Deployers Blizzard Drift and Overload Scrap that as well.
    RID Warrior Blizzard Drift, Thunderhoof and Quillfire
    RID Mini-Cons Blizzard Slipstream, Swelter, Hammer and "Back"/"Forth"
    CW Deluxe Smokescreen, Hound, Trailbreaker and Wheeljack
