Yep. My Cyclonus shipped one day last week, and Inferno shipped the next day. I think they're due to arrive on Monday/Tuesday, or Tuesday/Wednesday.

Merry Christmas to me! :)

Inferno was found at retail in a Florida Wal-Mart. The guy provided proof with pics. Receipt and time/date stamp included.

UNiverse Inferno is awesome! His alt mode is really accurate, and his robot mode is solid and poseable, and does the original justice.

Plus, he's a G2 mold/character!

Sell it to someone on here. With everyone getting Christmas money (most likely) you'd have people PM'ing you left and right for that thing.

As long as the price is within reason...

I'm not sure why this is, but I saw Inferno at TRU a couple months ago...I looked at him and then compared him to the "movie" inferno and thought "Man there sure are a lot of Infernos coming out"...Anyway I thought he looked pretty cool but I didn't buy him...Then after thinking about it I decided to go back and get him but of course he wasn't there anymore...

Ah well...I'll just have to wait til he pops up again...

Was Nightstick in those colors in G1, or was he different? Cuz, those colors look familiar, but not from Nightstick.

Hey, I wasn't going to start a whole new thread to ask this question--

Are a lot of people finding Hound, Cyclonus, and Inferno IN stores???

I'd check the sightings forum, but we all know it's not 100% up to date.

Uhh...wait a second. Which is it? Have you seen the new Universe figures at retail, or not? You're not making sense here...

So yeah...um. WTF?

And to answer the question in general...

Cheetor, Cyclonus, and Hound have been released to Target and quickly sold out. However, they haven't hit saturation yet, so we have a little while before everyone gets a chance.

Inferno has just now started showing up in stores.

I picked up Cyclonus last week in Wal-Mart. The Nightstick he came with is black/dark blue, not gray like in the picture in the news posting. Both Cyclonus and Nightstick are really great figures. They also had Hound, Cheetor and the new Starscream.

I didn't see any new Voyagers or bigger. I had enough money on me for two deluxes (at 7.77 each still at WalMart) so I got Cyclonus and Galvatron--they go great together. While Galvatron looks great in each mode, his transformation is a bit annoying--whereas Cyclonus' transformation is quite fun (as is Nightstick's for that matter!) :grin:

I am just picking up a select few of the classics (basically if I really like the character and the look of the toy), but I may need to splurge on universe Unicron--he might might go nicely with Cyclonus and Galvatron. :grin:

Forgive me for being unclear...What I was trying to say, in regards to whether or not I've seen the new figures in the stores, is that I've been checking my local stores frequently and I HAVE seen the new LEGENDS figures but have NOT seen any of the new deluxe or voyager figures yet...

With the exception of Inferno...And what I was saying about THAT is I actually saw Universe Inferno at TRU a couple months ago...And yes, I realize how that sounds but it's true...I didn't even think much of it until I began to get the impression from poking around here that Inferno hadn't actually been released yet...I don't know how he came to be on the shelf at Toys R Us so far ahead of schedule, and it's the ONLY once I've seen, but I'm kicking myself for not buying it at the time...
