Thanks to a tip from Alkaline, I found a ton of new Transformers at the new Target store on Broadway just north of Montrose in Chicago. This store had a massive amount of new Transformers including the Target exclusive 2-packs (Tailwhip/Arcee, Bumblebee/Thrust, Skids/Mudflap/Sideways, and Barricade/Sideswipe for $19.99 each), HFTD Legends Class, HFTD Activators, HFTD Deluxe Class, Generations Deluxe Class (mostly Primes and Bumblebees but there was a single Drift and Thrust there), HFTD Voyager Class, HFTD Leader Class, all 5 of the first wave of Power Core Combiners, and the HFTD Scouts. In addition, this store also had the new Speed Stars toys (Hound, Silverstreak, Bumblebee, Soundwave, Megatron and Gears). Check out the pics below for the first Target store sighting of these items. The images below all link to larger versions of the image.

I actually pictures of the Chicago shoot, showing the Nascarbots driving in formation with the Autobots.

Generations thrust and Drift also are not visible. They may just be behind all those WFC guys, but I doubt it.

There was 1 Drift and 1 Thrust there. I picked up the extra Drift for one of the staff members from Seibertron.com who lives in Japan.

LIES!!!!!!!!!!! all the target over here had was 32 mudflaps, 1 dirge and 2 of the stockade repaints. The tru across the street had a few powercore combiners and HFTD figures but that was it. And the HFTD ones were all the repaints except for legends ravage and Brimstone. Oh and walmart had 20 mudflaps and 2 mixmasters.

Seeing stock like that was a sight for sore eyes. Dang, that was a ton of figures.

There are certainly a few that are looking really good, but those 2-pack exclusives are easy NOs for me. Bumblebee is just silly looking to me as is Barricade. Tailwhip is a good repaint, but I don't like the mold at all. I would like to pick up a WFC Prime sometime, but I have to admit that I really don't like WFC Bumblebee much at all. I screwed up and decided to buy the little guy and I was disappointed.

Though I have sworn off buying very many off-the-shelf figures these days, I went ahead and grabbed Leader Starscream. Anyone who has the money for it, needs to make the purchase. That sucker is really good.

Probably because there already IS a movie Skywarp figure.

Also probably because this Thrust figure isn't in Skywarp's colors either. The jet mode is predominantly grey/silver.



I'd like to know why they called this figure Thrust at all. It's not in Thrust's colors. I would've been happy with a new name or a recycled name from someone that we haven't heard from in a while. I wonder if this was just an exercise in maintaining their rights to the name "Thrust"?

Well, it has Thrust's head mold, that's for sure. As for the colors, I did some looking and, except for the black, it's a dead ringer for RiD Skyfire. I'll have you know the "Skyfire" trademark is lost since Energon (hence "Skyblast" for the Skyfire lookalike Omnicon).

indeed, but it wouldnt be the first time the same character has had two figures in different size classes. Just sayin it aint right having a seeker painted in Skywarp's colors bein called Thrust when the same mold already has him is the right colors.

... So the 'Stealth Force' thing has Classics Hound and Animated Soundwave in addition to movie guys. Weird. But they actually look kind of interesting, compared to the little hot-wheels cars you just stand up on its butt.

Ugh, why does it have to be packaged with YET ANOTHER DAMN BUMBLEBEE?! Otherwise that repaint may still be called Thrust, but he'd actually make a pretty good Ramjet or Skywarp for people that didn't get the walmart exclusives repaints.
Don't know why they'd need to 'hold' Thrust's name with a RotF figure since they just had the Generations one out, unless the two 'characters' count differently for some reason.

Tailwhip ... is apparently Vortex. Neat, but those molds are both meh if you've already got Arcee and Blazemaster. I'd rather give Vortex-like abilities to Windburn when he's released.

Another pack with the ice cream truck version of the twins is nice for the people that couldn't find that little nugget though.

Armada Thrust was before they started homaging G1 Thrust's color scheme. If this had some green in it, maybe this could be an Armada Thrust homage. Speaking of whom, later got a G1 color scheme toward the end of the line.
