    His toy artwork is different from what he looks in the show

    The one-step Bludgeon is all over the place in my area.

    Bludgeon has already been released hasn’t he? I saw one a week or two back at Target.

    Bludgeon is shipping again in the Repugnus/Stealth Force Bumblebee wave. Whirl isn't. That's why you will likely find Bludgeon on the same shelf as Repugnus.

    Wave 7:
    2x Bumblebee (re-re-release in the third packaging variant)
    2x Wheeljack (re-re-release in the third packaging variant)
    2x Bludgeon
    2x Autobot Whirl

    Wave 8:
    2x Repugnus
    2x Stealth Force Bumblebee
    2x Wheeljack
    2x Bludgeon

    I bought him for my kid. She's once again not impressed with CV, she doesn't like his transformation sequence or his shark mode. Ah well.

    I kinda like him.

    it seemed like Target initially skipped wave 7 and went to wave 8. Last week I started to see wave 7 all over, which is when I got my Whirl. I would highly recommend.

    Found Hammerbyte today. He's no BW Cybershark but he's decent and pretty articulated for a warrior class figure. Also like the shark head gimmick doesn't really hinder either mode much except for no robot neck articulation.

    We haven't had a frontpage reporting of wave 7 proper yet.

    I sent Black Convoy a pic of the sighting last week wondering if it had been reported in the US. He was going to look into it. I know Canada and other regions found it but I was pretty sure it wasn't reported as being sighted here.

    I recently just went to my local walmart in Florida and found the new Cybertronian Mode Starscream along with Hammerbyte. He's quite fun. Hopefully this is newsworthy.

    Nice. He's pretty fun. More improved than the original. Gimmick is somewhat annoying but can be fun.

    Do we have a reliable Brickseek SKU for these? Either the assortment or specifically Hammerbyte?

    Alt mode is like a butterfly / Vic Viper hybrid. My son is still only interested in finding Rack'n'Ruin for non-deluxe figures.
