    Nevermore's thread still has this listed under the No U.S. Retail Sighting Yet section. If that's still the case, consider him and his wavemate Megatron sighted (Meijer in Louisville KY):

    I think the whip is supposed to be evocative of his Quintesson tendrils.

    I hate saying this, but megatron looks like a cardboard cutout and starscream looks too chunky.

    Distribution is so weird. We can’t even get this crap up here in Boston, let alone anything actually interesting

    I feel like I got Wolverine-Starscream ages ago from Amazon, but I don't recall if I have seen this guy in stores or not come to think of it...

    Edit: yeah, January...

    Yeah, this got lost in the shuffle somehow.

    It happens. Everyone is hot about Kingdom and Studio Series and Shattered Glass and whatnot, so Cyberverse gets the short end of the stick.

    Might be because this was originally posted in another thread.

    Damn... wave 2 only recently showing up in America, yet out in some other countries 8 months ago (November last year).
    .
    Although, I'd have easily been happy to miss them here for Hasbro to release the four waves of Cyberverse Tiny Changers (we got NONE of them :(  ), as those two toys can be bought online somewhere... the Tiny Changers are a big hole in my Cyberverse collection, because they aren't available anywhere online except a couple of sources selling a handful of them at 10 times their original price.

    To be sure, these might have shipped into U.S. stores even earlier and just went unnoticed. Somebody else may well have seen them even before I did and just didn't post about it.

    Those are new? I saw them today; remember trying to buy one on Amazon ages ago.

    They've been out in other countries since the end of last year, and they might have been available at US retail for a while as well, but nobody deemed it necessary to mention them until June. Might have been "didn't think it was new" syndrome.

    What's is the retail cost of these guys? I seem to remember they're quite expensive. I got Wildwheel and Meteorfire on Amazon for around 10-12 each and feel they're about right for that price.

    Also, how tf are these supposed to work? My Wildwheel just lights up once and then nothing. Meteorfire on the other hand blinks and has red and blue lights.

    Never mind my previous comment, megatron\'s armor looks like galvatron and starscream is just wolverine. Amazing

    Are these new to brick and mortsr retail? Dunno about Megs, but SS and Wildwheel were 12 bucks a pop on the last day of prime day. I didn't see Megs , but that could've been because they ran out of stock. I'd assumed they were retail shelf warmers due to how limited the gimmick was for the price, and snagged both for the kiddo to put in his sack from Santa.

    I have never got the things behind the Battle Call Trooper class. Their only saving grace is the soundbox. They are essentially overpriced Warriors. I mean, some of the better Warriors have more collector value because they aren't built an electronic gimmick.
    Basically, this entire reply is "adult collector rant".
