    Marion Wal-Mart has 2 Commander Class Roddimus Primes. However, one looks as if it was squashed by Galvatron himself. Also, the Marion Ollies had a Siege Megatron, several Snap Dragons, Iron Works, WW2 Hot Rods

    In my case I'm specifically talking about SS78.

    Titan is Cybertron Metroplex, and Commander is Motormaster. They have been leaked, just not added to the list.

    I have to say it's funny (and sad) that both offerings are so flawed that no one knows who or what the other is talking about. Speaking of Sideswipe, the original WTF Sideswipe was so surprisingly solid, especially compared with the POTP stuff. Now it seems like the quality has fallen back to where we started with except for smaller figures that cost more

    No issues with my Kingdom Sideswipe. Feels pretty good for a mold that’s been used 11 times.

    I still find that the WFC trilogy figures are leaps and bounds better in quality than the CW/TR/POTP figures. Those may have had size but good lord they were cheap, light, thin, hollow messes.

    The biggest difference I see from the first waves of WFC and now are the tolerances. The joints were overly tight if anything in the beginning - now it just seems all over the place at best. I guess that always happens in the later waves of whatever - diminishing returns until the new lines appear.

    In this case, a lot of the figures are retools of existing molds. Im *Shocked* Red Alert is INCREDIBLY sturdy and tight.

    Now when you say Cybertron Metroplex, are you referring to the one from the Unicron Trilogy because if so holy god I need it

    Yes. It's him. Hasbro are testing the waters with this particular figure. I'm buying it because I never got the original.

    Same here! He was one of my favorites growing up.

    He was a fantastic figure for his time. I can't wait to see him modernized

    For sightings I was at the Bridgewater (hamilton) Walmart today and saw a couple of Hasbro reps who were stocking the shelves- They told me they are trying to get all the product they can out of the back room but right now as far as Transformers are concerned there simply isnt any back there. Frustrating my hunt for Cyberverse Cheetor. Its nice to know that the reps are at least trying to stock our shelves- just we seem to be barren right now- just hoping for preorders i guess.

    I've seen that Cheetor at both colerain walmarts for a few weeks now. One even has the cyberverse deluxes at 13.47.
