Longtime fan artist Cheetimus has provided a sighting, but not just any sighting, oh no. He's presented, with photographic proof, the first US retail sighting of Combiner Wars Deluxe Wave 1, at his local Target in Maryland.

He tweeted about it, which you can visit by clicking on the image that we've embedded below:




Wave one consists of three Aerialbots (Firefly, Sky Dive, Alpha Bravo) and one Stunticon (Dragstrip), all of which combine with Voyager Class Optimus Prime to form Ultra Prime, which you can see in our galleries here.

It may seem odd that an East Coast store would see a sighting of these first, but I was the first to find Energon Leader Class Galvatron all those years ago and in PA no less, so it's not unheard of, just rare. If you have a sighting such as this, share it with us at sightings@seibertron.com and remember to post your findings in the sightings forum as well, and if you have anything news, please send it to news@seibertron.com and you could see your name up here and earn a news credit!

Are the bios in multiple languages or just English?

From the image, there are at least three languages on the box, for age indications and card description. That suggests that the bios might also be multilingual. :-?

Why does he say they are 11.99 while the picture shows 9.99$?

I can just barely make out the label; those appear to be pegs for Hero Mashers.

Just broke Silverbolt. Right near the hinges of the piece where Superion's head is attached to.

Still holds together for now, but the other side is also seriously showing strain.... Be careful when you transform him!

:shock: Would you be willing to post a pic?


Not the sharpest pics (hand-holdings manual focus macro lense is not easy) but it's still clear....

right side (broken)

left side (serious stress marks)

It's obvious from the underside too (the part that becomes Silverbolt's lower chest - but not risking another transformation here.

Between this and the floppy head on Prime, I'm not having the best of luck


Just checked mine, I've got stress marks on the same side yours broke! I've figured out the cause, it's due to 2 very small tabs that hold the piece in place in jet/bot mode, if you shave them off it prevents the part from flexing too much during transformation. There are also another 2 tabs exactly the same that hold the head section into the chest in jet/bot mode, I've shaved these down also making it easier to pull Superion's head out. Neither of this mods compromise any of the modes, don't know why those tabs are there TBH it's a much smoother transformation without them.

Hey Leaky, could you take some pictures to show us where you shaved off those tabs?

Will! Don't call him Leaky! He'll cut the bridge, and we'll all go down!
It's Leakin'. Mr. Lubricant, if your nasty.
Pics would be nice Sir Lube.

About the CW sighting.
That price has to be a fluke. I hope it's not though.
I just paid $14.99 for Chromia. I don't see Hasbro lowering their prices any time soon.

It was the Target sale price on Generations Deluxe figures last week. Pretty sure the sale is over now, but I'm going to go in and check today to be sure.

Ah-ha. That's awesome that the new merch fell under the sale price. I'd call that a, good fluke.
I was actually just at Target. Shelves were pretty bare. No sale on deluxes, but a lot of clearance on AOE exclusives.

Here are the pics, sorry for the crappy quality, but I've circled the relevant areas in red for clarity.

The tabs that appear to cause stress to the neck plate.

The tabs that hold the head section into Silverbolts chest (too tightly in my opinion).

"Sir Lube" :lol: I like that one, sounds like a posh sex aid.

:lol: I thought the same thing. After I hit submit, of course. I just let it roll.

Thanx for the pics. Don't mean much yet, but will be helpful soon. They DO make me anxious to get my hands on him soon though.

This does not bode well for the appearance of Arcee and Chromia in my area.... :/

I stand corrected, the sale price is still on at Target, but no CW figs in sight. Did finally pick up Tankor at that price along with Skrapnel and Reflector.

So I guess Hasbro had a change of heart and won't be doing comic packs just for North America after all. Bummer, not a fan at all of the international packaging.

Just a correction about that statement, the comics are not made for north america outright while the packages without the comics are for international audiences. The comic packages thus far have been the default while the ones without them are for places that have language laws saying that there must be a translation for the material on the language of the region. Now obviously, the main language of the USA and several places in Canada is English, so the packages come with the comics. However, the main language of Quebec in Canada is French, and thus the comic cannot be included in the packages sold in the province. In reverse scenario, some countries outside of North America don't mind English as the main language found in the product. Hong Kong, for instance, has the packages that come with the comics.

Thanks to TWO submissions, we've been alerted to Combiner Wars Wave 1 Voyagers and Deluxes (!) being in stock and shipped from Amazon themselves. One slight wrinkle, one possibly big wrinkle: Slight is an extra 1-2 days to process on the limb bots themselves, while the big one is that they're now priced the highest on the market right now at $18.99 per limb!

If you want them, you better act fast before Amazon sells out, even at those prices.

Alpha Bravo

Dragstrip

Firefly

Optimus Prime

Silverbolt

Skydive

While these have not hit saturation, yet, they will if you're patient. If you want 'em now and you're willing to pay a premium to obtain them, Amazon will be your best bet right now. Not to mention, with distribution issues in certain parts of the country/world, gas spent, and time most likely wasted, this is actually more economical in the long run. All of the figures are Prime eligible and after $35.00 their shipping is free.

I'll play the waiting game. I'm still waiting on Roadbuster and Skybyte... Hopefully we'll still see some 2014 releases on shelves once Combiner Wars breaks loose.

More luck in Maryland. Found an unopened (albeit trashed) box at the Westminster Target store. Figures are the same code as previous Generations deluxe toys and are currently ringing up at the $11.99 sale price until 1/17/2015 according to the sale tag on the peg. Normal is $14.99.

Also found that some stores are doing their resets and the RID toys are hitting the pegs. Warrior at $14.99 and the small Legends size at $5.99, so far. Picked up Grimmy.

They've also hit the Amazon UK site with Deluxes and Voyagers going for £15.99 and £22.99 respectively.

That's like $100 for a full Combiner. Forget that. =;
