I look forward to seeing these in stores, along with leaders Megatron and Optimus (premiums).

It'd be nice if the sightings section had a listing for the premium versions :)

The link didn't work for me.

Did they say which store and which state those Premiums were found at?

Link didn't work for me either, but here is the site, looks like it was found in Cali: http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-new ... il-164477/

I would be a lot more interested if they came in the boxes that Bestbuy Megatron and Ratchet came in.

California is where they usually pop up first. It'll probably be a few weeks until they trickle out to the midwest.

Uh.. my third chance to get Ironhide, and i'll have to pass. I have no idea what they were thinking when they put snow detail on the windows.

I went to this same reported Walmart yesterday immediately after reading the post. No joy :-( . However this morning I went to a few other local Walmarts and did finally find Premium Ironhide and Blackout :D . Hopefully we'll get those leaders here pretty soon, that's what I'm really waiting for, I passed on both originally, but that Prime looks good.

My Wife went Easter shopping yesterday and told me she got our kid a Blackout for his basket. I thought well that's pretty cool, but then this morning I saw the box and it happened to be a premium. The box looks very nice.

This was the Hemet, CA Walmart btw.

What's the back of that box look like? Do they have the original Blackout figure on the back rather than the repaint? Every image I've seen of that box so far has had the old one rather than the new one.
