Grabbing Trailbreaker, don't care about the rest. Are those comics sold seperately?

I can't wait for these!! i have three targets in my area and i've been checking at least one of them daily. They've been spotted across the west so far, im waiting for them to come to indiana. if the triple changers are any indication, they should spread fairly quickly

This was a bit of an odd find for me...I went in on the off chance they had some more of the Predacons Rising line I'd found last week. I would guess they aren't going on the shelves until closer to the TV movie being aired.. They had a few random Beast Hunters Deluxes, some Cyberverse Airachnids and a Twinstrike, and what looked like two full cases of the Voyager triple-changers had just been put out. Right above them.....these Deluxes! Only one not on the peg was Bumblebee. There was one Orion Pax left after I got these three.

They're on the shelves in Toys R Us in Exeter, here in England!!

I bought Pax and Trailbreaker.

Interestingly, they're in special European packaging. They don't come with comics. They have a small blurb on the back in thirteen languages instead! We are so lucky.

Also on the shelves were Fall of Cybertron Grimlock and Soundwave. :-( I was hoping for Springer and Blitzwing.

The comics can be picked up if you do some hunting around at your local comic shops. The covers that come with the figures are (I believe) variant covers exclusive to the toy releases. I already have all 3 of these Spotlight comics so my only interest in holding on to the comics once I pick up the toys will be just for the covers.

There are six Spotlight comics, and the rest of the Generations line will also include issues, though from the RiD series. So far only the deluxes are 'confirmed', like Waspinator and Thundercracker.

All six Spotlights will be collected into the Dark Prelude TPB, in case you can't get your hands on them!

Oh... If I would have known this was a big deal, I would have said something last week.

P.S. I only got Orion so far, and it is awesome.

Ha! I was lucky to snag one when TRU.com put them up the week of Comic Con. Of course I had no luck with Soundwave (most people didn't), who I wanted a lot more. Still...Acid Storm is pretty cool. And VERY intensely green. I'd just taken the pictures of the IDW deluxes at the end of my table where I had the most space, and that's where he'd happened to be.

I was a little surprised when picking these guys up that Bumblebee was the only one not available. I figured it'd be 5 Bumblebees to a case, and the other 3 spots would be these three, since Hasbro loves selling any case assortment with some sort of Bumblebee in it.

And Happy Birthday, dude! :DANCE:

Mine will probably be $13 as well, they very rarely differ from list price. But $13 isnt bad for a figure & a comic, plastic quality & size will dictate if i buy these or not. But at least hasbro finally figured out that $15 deluxes are a bad idea. Now all they need to do is figure out that TRU exclusives are an even worse idea all will be right in the world.

Found em in indiana :) BUYER BEWARE ON THE MEGATRON!!!
He's a great figure, but he has two triangular panels on the backs of his shoulders that are extremely prone to stressing!!! One was actually stressed right out of the package, i didn't notice and i broke it, the other was beginning to stress. i managed to exchange them, but be VERY careful with these panels!!!

Got these a couple of weeks ago at my Target but I didn't know how to post it here. Someone had them hanging in the clearance section so I got them 30% off!

Why is it my luck always consists of endless amounts of Beast Hunters Lazerback and the first wave of Generations: Fall of Cybertron? :BANG_HEAD:

We are still needing these figures listed on the Product Listings page so we can all communicate to one another better that they've been found when and where.

I got all 4. I didn't INTEND to, but I found them for a good price and they only had 2 of each out at the store. Honestly, Bumble Bee has a lot of problems, and Orion Pax has a few minor, but irritating problems. The left shoulder on mine was put together with the wrong parts, with parts that were for the right shoulder. They're supposed to be mirrored and it just wasn't, so the arm doesn't snap into place properly. Otherwise, there's no places for the weapons to go in robot mode. I like it a lot, though.

Megatron is good,but the weapon is just... not that good looking. I blame the design from the comics for that, though. Trailblazer is probably my favorite from this release, despite the loose chest. I just like the design.

Anyone else find a Bumblebee without ANY paint on his face? Didn't realize mine was that different until I got home.
