    It's not just Canada, I spotted some Cybertron Adventures figures at a Walmart in Longview, Texas.

    I take it you don't know what I'm talking talking about. What I'm talking about is outside of Canada, I found the new Cybertron Adventures line for the Cyberverse series, the walmart that had the toys was in Longview, Texas, I didn't see the Qintessons, but I did Find Bumblebee, I didn't get him, but he did look nice for a toy that's $19.00, I won't pay a price that expensive on a figure.

    So you're basically saying that tangentially related toys are available in the USA that may or may not have been reported before. Since you don't specify which price point you're talking about, I'll try to poinpoint it down:

    Warrior Class wave 6 (Cybertronian mode Bumblebee, Stealth Force Hot Rod, Cybertronian mode Megatron, Soundwave re-release) has been reported before (Walmart).
    Deluxe Class wave 1 (Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Shockwave) has been reported before (Target).
    Ultra Class wave 6 (new Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Clobber) has been reported before (Meijer, Target and even Marshalls).
    The Cybertronian Villains "Quintesson Invasion" set (which this thread is actually about) has been reported before (Target exclusive).
    The Cybertronian Villains "Sharkticons Attack" set has been reported before (Target exclusive).
    1-Step Changers wave 7 (Whirl, Bludgeon, Bumblebee re-release), Wheeljack re-release) has not been reported for the US yet.
    Scout Class wave 6 (Ramjet, Dead End, Optimus Prime re-release, Grimlock re-release) has not been reported for the US yet.
    Ultimate Class wave 4 (new Optimus Prime, Shockwave) has not been reported for the US yet.

    Which ones are you talking about specifically?

    I actually found those working while at Target in a repack box. They aren't on shelves right now so they might have a street date. Stealthforce Hotrod with sharkticons are out though.

    Wait, the set with the Quintesson is a Target exclusive?! Man, I didn't even check that store. Still, I found Bumblebee, Optimus, and those other figures that were in Walmart, I heard we were getting an Arcee figure, the line has been saturated with enough Windblade figures, oi vey.

    Still, some repacked figures like Prowl and Shockwave with the aforementioned Quintesson figure with some accessories is isn't really new to me, I've seen that same thing happen with the older transformers figures in the past, the last repack I actually saw a couple of years back mattered to me was something I was familiar with, and it was at a Walgreens, though while I feel that should be discussed in another thread, I just wanted to point out that Repackaged figures might have some upsides and some downsides, while one of the upsides is that while you get the figures with the accessories, one of the downsides is when you realize you had several opportunities to get the figures, you miss the chance to get them while they are replaced by newer figures.

    I'm not Canadian, but I get what you're saying, Hasbro doesn't care about the price, they just ship out what figures they have so we could buy them, it's the stores that put the price on the products.

    Well, you must have been lucky to get a glimpse at the figures before they hit the shelves, Stealthforce, huh? Hasbro really likes doing repaints, don't they?
