Seibertron member reluctantyouth has sighted the highly anticipated Transformers Generations: Fall of Cybertron Deluxe wave 3 figures at retail! The figures were spotted at a Toys"R"Us location in Peoria, IL 61615. This wave features Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Kickback, Sideswipe, and Air Raid. As you can see in reluctantyouth's images below, Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Wave one was also on hand. Happy hunting!

Funny, I thought this was old news... :roll:
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

Thank you.

Earliest reports were three days ago, unless you found them somewhere prior than that.

Still waiting for my TRU to restock as there were no deluxe figures left after christmas which i guess leaves them plenty of room for when the new stuff arrives.

Dang, was really hoping that this wave could wait another two or three weeks so I can snag Swindle and start saving for Ultra Magnus, Kickback, or Starscream, whichever I find first.

Well, I found them in a comic book store two days before Christmas.
Does anyone have Cybertron Optimus Prime's wings hanging around that they don't need?

I never managed to attach the wings to mine and I thought I'd stashed them somewhere to try again later, but now I can't seem to find them anywhere. Anyone has 'em and is willing to sell 'em, please contact me.

This has probably been brought up before, but I wonder if the "Robots in Disguise" figures were so small because they new these remolds and bigger weapons were coming?

Thanks El Duque for posting this news and my pics so quickly! :BOWDOWN: I didn't think i would find these figures so soon at this TRU in Peoria. The store was pretty wiped out of new stuff after Christmas and the entire top shelf was empty of boxes for the first time in months. It looked like my store only got 1 case of FOC Wave 3 and Prime BH and I just got lucky. I did post this news a couple of days ago but did not take pictures until today when I purchased another Lazerback. :BOT:

Two months? Ouch.

Strange, I don't think inventory takes two months... My mother works as a loss-prevention (security) manager at my local Sears, and their inventory takes a couple days. At least, that's what I scraped up. Don't judge me, I'm an aspiring Marine tanker, not a retail employee. >:oP

Nope. The last Generations sighting news prior to this was Voyager Wave one and Data Discs wave one.

Walmart has deluxe class figures for $5 and voyagers for $10 for that reason.

Yes my TRU has an obscene amount of DOTM stuff clogging the shelves as you can see in my pics. I have not seen our local Hasbro rep of late...if I see her I will definitely ask her about what will happen with DOTM. The Peoria area Walmarts are overstocked with FOC wave 1 or Prime Wave 1...no DOTM left really. :BOT: But Peoria Target just got a stock off DOTM deluxe special buy two packs for $9.99...Target here sucks too...there is a Super Target coming Spring 2013 and I hope it is better stocked and the area is managed properly. >:oP

so thats where all of the last wave of DOTM figures went to. But anyway i see they're still charging $16 for a deluxe so it looks like i wont be getting any of these. Doesnt matter anyway only ones i care about are Soundwave, Soundblaster & the data discs. Yeah i would like to at least have 1 of the FoC guys but they are to small &/or to expensive. Ill just wait for clearances or sales like ive been doing.

$15.99 is a steal. My TRU is selling them for $18.49. =)

YES! Awesome. That does look fantastic. I hate how they retconned Magnus into being dark blue over here.

So I guess I'll call the USA version my Diaclone Magnus or Hero Prime or something. Hmmmm.

I'll have to say, the Takara version is most impressive. However, I think the Takara uses the toy accurate blue, and the Hasbro version uses the G1 cartoon blue, similar to how MP-10/Toys "R" Exclusive Optimus Prime was differentiated.

Diaclone Magnus is the traditional palette swapped; whereas Ultra Magnus is predominately blue with red and white highlights, Diaclone Magnus is predominately red with blue and white highlights.

Image

While Combat Hero Optimus could be a potential suit, keep in mind that both the original canceled figure and the Generations figure that homages said canceled product both lack the sufficient amount of white that helps define Ultra Magnus.
