    The people who are pulling the figures out the back at these Targets either have know idea there's a release date or don't care. I went as far as asking for the manager at one Target and told them that alot of other Target stores were selling these figures already, but I was told they would not sell them untill the 21st. I have been told these at 3 different Target stores.

    Odd, I saw them both at TRU yesterday in Taipei. Of course, that could be because we don't have Target in Taiwan, so TRU usually gets all of the "exclusives". So we got both the Universe Superion/Bruticus and now the the RoTF Superion/Bruticus. Lucky us :D

    Do you guys expect there to be a short supply of Superion's in light of the Fans Project upgrade?

    No, every store I've been to has had between 12 and 48 Superion packs in stock.

    I haven't seen Superion anywhere here in Canadaland. But I want Bruticus more. He looks so awesome.

    Hopefully, Bruticus doesn't have Quality Control problems like my Superion I got yesterday.

    I picked up Superion Today after giving Target the DCIP# and they had 12 of them so they grabbed some and put him on the shelf and 1 to me.

    Question: Does the bio differ at all on the RoTF Superion from the Universe Superion? Didn't bother to pick up Superion when I was at TRU as I already have the Universe version.

    That sounds pretty similiar to what's on my Universe package. I'll have to check when I get home from work today.

    Thanks for the pick of the bio, by the way.

    Hes $29.99. When I asked if they had any the guy said that they were $39.99 to me and I was like WTH?? Then when I saw where they were he was placed on the shelf where the $39.99 Bumblebee Helmet was and right below that shelf was a little Superion Combiner $29.99 tag.
