My local stores still don't even have them in stock. I hate Hasbro's distribution system...they can rot in hell.
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.

Paradise!

Anyone notice that all the Deluxe class packages (even Autobots) have the Decepticon symbols on them? Was that intentional? Is this old news, or have I been living under a rock? XD

That is strange. My deluxe autobots have autobot symbols on the card. Must be packaging variations.
The Seibertron galleries have the correct symbols also.
Looks like their real gear figures all have autobot symbols, mine are accurate according to the character.

On another note that TRU display is mindblowing!
That's what I like to see.

I haven't seen toy shelves that filled with Transformer stuff since the 80's (imagine...a 4-foot section of nothing but Optimus, Soundwave, and Megatrons...it was the equivalent of heaven on earth if you weren't old enough to experience it).

The only things I'm interested in alla this stuff this summer are the G1 plushies, Potato-Head Prime, the Robot Heroes, and a few Real Gears.

WOOT! Better than the Halo 3 Beta! Can't wait for Saturday! I went to my local TRU today actually; they have the Fast Action Battlers out, and the figural keychains, but nothing else.

Ironhide, Leader Class Optimus Prime, Scorponok and Brawl FTW!!

Yeah those are probably CDN prices.

My local TRU is stocked to the roof too...but still no Soundwaves. It's a pretty impressive TF display though. :)

These prove exactly what kind of sheer abundance we're in for when it comes to the movie toys. I still can't believe the amount of money people spent on overpriced eBay auctions of these same figures that are now available for a fraction of the price... just a couple of months later.

Some people are just keen, chap. There's no harm in that.

Well, I'm beginning to wonder if Toys'r'us UK stores will have such impressive displays come Saturday. We haven't received either layouts or displays, not to mention enough figures to fill where TF is going yet. It's replacing Doctor Who on the feature wall- perhaps we're waiting till the end of the current series at the end of June. It doesn't make much sense moving everything away while the show's on telly, I suppose.

Leader Class Starscream hasn't fully been proven yet.

Leader Class Brawl will be sometime in August alongside Ultimate Bumblebee.

Leader Megatron is wave 2, and was due originally in mid July. However, he's been purchased at several different places and seems to be part of wave 1 now, according to Hasbro's official checklist.

So it looks like (actual TFing figure wise) this is what we'll see on Saturday:

Leader Class:
Megatron
Optimus Prime

Voyager Class:
Blackout*
Ironhide
Ratchet
Robo-Vision Optimus Prime***
Starscream

Deluxe Class:
Barricade**
Bonecrusher
Brawl
Bumblebee**
Jazz
Protoform Optimus Prime
Protoform Starscream
Scorponok*
Swindle
Wreckage

Real Gear:
Booster X10
Longview
Power Up VT6
Speed Dial 800
Spy Shot 6
Zoomout 25x

NOTE: *= Comes with his own miniature Scorponok, plus combines with the Deluxe Scorponok, and will also be available as a Toys "R" Us exclusive 2-pack for $24.99

**= Barricade, Bumblebee, Frenzy (who comes with Barricade) in a Wal-Mart exclusive 2-pack for $16.97

***= Target only exclusive. Mass release Voyager Prime will not be available until a later wave.

Hope this helps! :D

EDIT: There will be more than just this of course, but I was focusing on the direct movie characters. (Apparently Real Gear toys don't make an exact cameo in the film, but their real counterparts do to an extent, which is why I added them to the list.)

Wish my Toys R Us looked like that. All they have in the Transformers section are a few Cybertron figures and a couple of Classics. Then the Star Wars Transformers kind of spill over onto that along with the Star Wars unleashed. I'm really starting to wonder where they will be puttig the movie stuff.

One of my local TRUs looks like that, it was heaven yesterday. :D

I'm lucky enough to have 3 accessible ones in my area, and so far 1 has a display like this.
