We know. No one stepped forward to present their findings, so I took the initiative.


PM coming your way.

How can it be said that "No one stepped forward to present their findings" if both figures have multiple reported sightings in the Seibertron Toys Sightings Section? Is it because those users didn't create a separate entry in a different forum? I honestly don't get it.

I found these like a week ago... I never said anything because I thought it had been news'd already.

Just saw Hoist yesterday at local Wal-Mart in Pikeville, KY. The only one of the new IDW comic figure packs I have seen around.

Ah. That explains it. We try to keep our news sources "in house" as much as possible.

They are available for order and ship next week on Hasbro Toy shop as well. Debating if I want to get them or not. I have Trailcutter and screamer, but then I would have to get Skywarp from Takara... choice choices.

You realize that Hasbro is releasing their own Skywarp, in the correct arrangement of black and purple, right?

No I had not read that anywhere. I thought that Skywarp was an exclusive to Takara.

Any good coupon codes currently active?

Also, come to think of it, I do seem to remember reading that Hasbro was doing Skywarp. I think it was announced/revealed at SDCC. I found this:
