Fun fact about Classics Skyfire - try giving him Vector Prime's missile! He'll be able to shoot VP's missile further than and faster than his own. Aww yeah.

I went into my local TRU yesterday (Langley) with the SKU's for Jetfire, Ramjet and Cliffjumper. They told me that the new wave had arrived but was still in the warehouse awaiting unpacking. Some good news for British Columbians as it looks like the newest classics will hit shelves anyday now!

Legends Action Figures has Classics Cliffjumper, but they sold out on Ramjet.

They also have a sale on Basic Titaniums, 2 for $10.

I tapped out and bought 6" Cheetor from the Snail. This is the first Titanium I'm overall not pleased with. His cat tail dangles down between his legs in bot' mode and is the first 6"er to not have wrist articulation. the head sculpt is nice I suppose, but not really it's saving grace. If your a fan of BM then I would recommend it, but if not, wait until it's on sale (or don't get it at all)

Last time I saw them must have been during Cybertron's run, before Soundwave and Uber Scattershot came out. Once they sold, I haven't seen them since they got restocked this week.

I found some new Titaniums at TRU yesterday. Rodimus Prime, WW Starscream, and RiD Prime. Only picked up Rodimus Prime. Starscream is hideous. And Prime, while not ugly, I just can't get him if there is no Ultra Magnus for him to combine with. I do like how they all come in a red box similar to the Classics.

I don't have a TRU that I'm close to anymore, so I haven't seen them yet.

Can you post some pics of the new boxes?

BTW, RID Prime is a great fig, but I agree. They should have nixed the WW Magnus and made RID Magnus that was more armor then anything. I also have WW Screamer and the colors are way off. Especially in jet mode. there's a big red line through the middle of the cockpit because of a flaw in the colorscheme. Booooooooooooo

I saw RID Prime and WW Starscream at the Barrie Ontario TRU. These are the 6" Titanium toys. There were also Alts there, Prime, Camshaft, Jazz and others.

There's two 6" Titanium Starscreams at Brampton TRU, 1 at Hurontario TRU... No other new ones, though... (I still need 6" Soundwave, Rodiums and RID Prime)...

Here are some picks of the packaging, it's a simple red box.

I'm fairly certain the inside of the packaging is different for each figure. The inside was different for the first round of figures in the Megs packaging right?

Ordered a classic Jetfire from ToysRus.ca this weekend - but right after I went to post my find here, it disappeared from the site. I still have a "Voyager Classics Jetfire" order placed through them, with confirmation email, but I have no idea why it's no longer on the site. Usually they just mark it "out of stock."

Thanks for the pics UP, I'll ask the news crew if they think it's news worthy. And I'm pretty sure the old Canadian packaging was Megs through and though for all of them. It does appear that Rodimus has his flames behind him like the US version. Hopefully we can get a confirmation on that soon.

I picked up a Classics Mirage today at The Bay on Yonge/Bloor. It's so cool. It's super posable. There's one left if anybody's still looking. I also saw a couple of Classics Grimlock.

My favorite Classic yet. If you don't like how thin he looks as a robot, just attach his crossbow to his chest, where it ends up in vehicle mode. It doesn't hinder his incredible articulation, either.

Hmm, interesting. I'm moving to Mississauga soon so I'll have to check it out. I've just accepted a job as a Customer Service Manager at Erin Mills Mazda.

Hey, has anyone seen Classics Devastator at their Wal-marts or Rumble and Ravage? I know they are Wal-mart exclusives and while we usually get boned on that sort of thing, I've found a few wally exclusives in Ontario (Last one that comes to mind was the Prowl vs Starscream Armada two pack)

Haven't seen 'em yet, Shifts. And congratulations on the job, by the way!

The Brossard TRU only has 1 Grimlock remaining, so I hid it so TheTouch can get it (I owe him, I screwed him and bought the last Starscream one time. We were both looking for him, and so was this other guy who bought all of the Deluxes of Wave I, minus the Screamer. He must hate me.).

Last night I picked up 6" Titanium RID Prime and Rodiumus at Sheridan Mall Zellers... They still have a WW Starscream. I was hoping to get Soundwave as well, but it seems like I missed him last round...

In Quebec, the Anjou TRU had a wall full of the various newer minicon sets, and most of the newer classics. For sure, they had Jetfire, Grimlock, and Mirage. They had titanium Scourge and Rodimus too.

Possibly the most interesting thing, though - they have the entire length of the transformers aisle lined along the bottom with Primus and sale signs marking him about $40. They have more than enough of the big guy to go around.
