    They should be. Ultras are generally 3 per case, so it'd make sense to have of each of the 3 in there. Though these are universe so it might be different. For some reason I'm thinking U-Nemesis Prime was 4 per case.


    For what it's worth (don't know if this has been confirmed before or not) I checked my store's system last night. None in (what a shock) but the price was $16.99.

    Thanks! That's not a bad price. For some reason I thought they were going to be 19.99.

    I looked again and they are indeed 3 per case, 1 of each of the Landfill 2 packs and one overbite/repugnus.
    I snatched up the pic label from the box, however I have no scanner or digital camera at the moment. If someone wants me to mail it to them so they can post it I'll do that, so people don't think I am a liar. :p

    They were originally shown at SDCC 2004 and OTFCC 2004. Yes, that's how old these things are.

    Transfan 2 already bought pre-release versions from eBay:

    Bonecrusher & Scavenger

    Long Haul & Hightower

    Also, Overbite & Repugnus

    Ok, I feel I must make this postso people don't go to target on the 19th and find nothing and then cry, bitch and moan and this turns into a starwars board.

    The set date is the general date it is due. Some stores will set the endcap early depending on how loaded the toy team lead is with endcap planners and day to day workload, and how fast previous endcaps sell down.

    Typically though, the end cap gets set sometime during the week of the set date. So this endcap most likely will be set in the days AFTER the 19th. But like I said, it doesn't hurt to check before the set date, just don't be surprised if you go one the 19th and there's no endcap set yet.

    That fails to explain the case of 4 that an employee brought out, gave me two of, and then put the other two on the shelf.
