    I remember reading somewhere that this was going to be an exclusive, but it should make it easier to find if it's not. I already have the existing classics version of each of these guys, but I like the colors on this Cyclonus better and I could use another Hot Rod to display now that I have the FP Protector (Rodimus Prime Upgrade) set. It's a definite buy for me if I happen to run across it.

    About it being an exclusive:

    That was all just rumor, which actually had started with the Challenge at Cybertron 3 pack (thanks to Hasbro UK). When the RTS Battle in Space box set was announced, there was some speculation going on there too. But that's all it was.

    Thanks! I went to a Target near me in RI and they had it, too. I had to use the DCPI and ask someone to get it. The guy brought 3 of them out and I bought 1.

    ^ yes.

    Prediction: we're going to be waist-deep in these things. Which is a good thing.

    The matrix. I'm mostly getting it for the matrix. The perfect gift for generations thunderwing.

    Was half worried mass release in the US would not have that part as some kind of safety tested choking hazard stipulation or something.

    Great pack. If its anywhere near as widespread as the nest global aliiance battlefield bumblebee and interrogator Soundwave pack. Then the party has arrived.

    If these go on clearance, then I'll be laughing all the way home.

    Well this is bullshit, I called 6-7 different Targets today and the only one showing any on hand, after 23 minutes of being on hold with an inept toy team member, tells me they are street dated and cannot be sold until January 2nd. WTF?!?

    Yeah, they're street dated for the week of January 2. All the people who have found them at Target have found them because the employees didn't pay attention to/didn't care about the tag. Target will be doing a reset of the toy department that week. They'll also be putting out the Stealth Force motorcycle assortment.

    I just ordered the set from Amazon & since I've never had any incarnation of these characters I'm curious about Cyclonus. can the small figure fit in the cockpit?
