Of note is that it's the set with the Voyagers, not the Leaders.

Voyager two pack not leader as that's a BBTS/Toys R Us exclusive and not a K-Mart exclusive for those who were wondering. The box looks the same for both though.

Sadly yes. Took me by surprise actually, I was expecting Kmart to go chapter 11 within a few years, then this pops up.

Was wondering why the hell it was priced at $60 till I realized it was Kmart... Funny how the biggest ghetto of a department store is also the most expensive.

This set is $130.00 AUD. Saw it and was shocked by the price. They had both these figures priced at $40, so an extra $50 just for a double pack? So stupid.

The Australian retail on the OP & Grimlock set is $130, but they were $99 online during Myer's Toy Sale & you could also get a further 10% off when you entered the promotional code. Throw in free shipping for orders over $100 & it wasn't that bad of a deal. Never pay full price ;)

A word of advice, DON'T ORDER OFF KMART OR SEARS.COM! They have a terrible time sending you the right item because the clerks take it off the shelf and box it themselves. They'll grab anything that's the right size and price

OK, I'm slow, but I only now realized there were two versions of certain deluxe figures. One Battle Action version, and one well-sculpted version for the adults. I noticed it with Scorn and Strafe. And is Drift like this? Interesting how they did this divide and conquer method, though.

So you get two $20-$25 figures for... $60? Something's not right here.

That's with every single character so far, be they Deluxe or Voyager. The differences in packaging are minimal: to the point the Deluxes and Power Attackers share eachother's pegs! So you'd need to be really careful in avoiding the ones that call out the gimmick.

Yes he has a sword slashing gimmick. Check my you tube channel for the review. Thanks in advance.

So, weren't we supposed to get a Stinger?

Noting was officially announced at either BotCon or SDCC. We are getting a One-Step Stinger (same style as Lockdown) and several Legion repaints, all exclusive to Walmart (though the One-Step has appeared at Target(!)).
That is it. No Deluxe, no mention of a Bumblebee reshell, nothing. And the red Sideswipe/Swerve that comes with FE Prime + Trailer set? Sideswipe with Swerve's head mold.

Speaking of the Wal-Mart Stinger exclusives, is it wrong that I want both of them? Especially since one is only £3 at the moment.
