    Just stopped into my local toys r is and they had the sgt. Kup, sky shadow, wheeljack and junk heap there? Thought these were a 2010 line? Still cool if someone haven't found any of them.

    This may happen time-to-time. Just an old case found in the back of the stock room.

    They've been showing up off and on for a while. Marshalls/TJX had them over the summer, TRU probly bought them at that time and they're just filtering out now. They have 2 year old Spiderman (6" scale) figures too, as well as the older Iron Man stuff.

    Heck, I went to a store in the Mall of America a few weeks back and they had all the toys you were talking about......plus some stuff from ROTF yet.

    My TRU has had those for months. They actually put more out on the pegs in the last week.

    Yeah, past couple of weeks that case in particular have been showing up at TRUs. Kinda weird since it's not even slightly localized.

    Yeah, I've seen those on pegs here as well. Nothing new.

    While the line began in 2010, that specific wave is from 2011. The very last wave before DotM, I think.

    Not too surprised if some cases went aside for incoming DotM cases, or since Ross and TJMaxx/Marshalls are getting some now that TRU would pick up a few as well.

    I've seen them at my TRUs, but with them half the price across the street at TJ Maxx, I leave them where they hang.

    My TRU got me with this last week, showed up looking for the GDO deluxes and saw them, thought they were the GDO's until I looked closer..

    Not too long ago I saw a wave of ROTF with Soundwave and Deep Desert Brawl in them, picked up the soundwave.... went back for Brawl the next week and he was gone..

    Junkheap, yes. Get 2.

    Sky Shadow is passable, but the better deco between him and Thunderwing.

    Sky Shadow is really simple, but very fun. I like the way he looks, he's pretty posable (wrist swivels for the win! Although his jet mode guns interfere with his shoulders somewhat...), and he's got a great color scheme.

    Plus, he's a gangster. He kind of leads a faction of like-colored TFs on my shelf.

    But objectively he's not that great. I just like it.

    Try to find them at Ross/TJ Maxx/Marshalls before paying Toys R Us prices for them. I seem to recall still seeing all of them but Warpath in a TJ Maxx in late September.
