We have good news for fans. Transformers Studio Series Leader Class SS-44 Dark Of The Moon Jetwing Optimus Prime has been found at US retail. Specifically, Target in San Antonio Texas. This is a redeco and slight retool of SS-32 Optimus Prime and you will need to attach the extra abdominal piece that comes with Studio Series Jetfire for them to combine together, if you so desire. His abs are painted and so is his sword.
This particular sighting was found by SuperRock7 over at the TFW2005 boards.

If ever you find him as well, please let fans know in your state's (or country's) sightings forum. You can also insert the sighting in our sightings section.

Who is his wave mate? Hopefully it is two of him, but I highly doubt it.

Hoping to see him soon. This whole wave has been turning out really cool, and the in-hand impressions have been glowing as well. Drift amusingly seems to be a very popular figure from the wave

He's shortpacked, so you will always see the other two more.

To answer the other question, optimus' wavemate is dotm megatron.

He was in wave 4 which it seems Walmart started restocking again as that wave just showed up at my local stores again as well. Guess they found some old warehouse stock.

Megatron, to go with the half dozen already on the overflow shelf at one of my local Walmarts.

Cheers. Yeah i'd forgotten just how much I like this mold and this new paint deco looks great. I wondering if KSI Boss is painted all shiny to match this Cogman cos Cog's head is now too shiny to really look right on Nitro Zeus. :P

How are the joints on your Cogman? Most in-hand reports have claimed the SS version to be much looser and floppier than the stronger TLK version. My SS Cogman is the same, being much more floppy than my TLK Cogman.

Um. He's fine. Not overly loose or floppy at all. Not as stiff as some figures but everything stays where I put it and holds the poses well. Even if I did have any issues it's an easy fix but so far I have nothing to fix on him at all.

I mean, it's not like the SS one is so loose that it can't hold together or stand up, but that there's at least a very noticeable difference in how the TLK one was much tighter.

Also, reports say the SS one can't grip his sword tightly. Mine is the definitely the same in that regard.

Wave Seven is in stock at BBTS. It's now in my POL, too. :D I am so tempted to ship it out for Hightower. I wanna start snapping my Devastator together! :KREMZEEK: :michaelbay:

What does that mean? I can pick up the whole figure by the sword and all that happens is his hand will fold down a bit into transformation mode because of the overall weight of the figure. The hand still grips the sword handle.

You must have gotten a rare good one, then. Most everyone else has reported getting mediocre ones.

aw cool. yay for me. I wish I'd gotten a good Barricade. I had wondered why the torso on mine doesn't tab with the crotch area properly til I saw a close up photo of the tab part on someone else's figure and mine is actually missing the tiny lil piece that actually locks the parts. Doesn't even look broken, it's just not there and that's why if you try pick up my Barricade by his top half, his lower half will flop backwards. I've got workarounds for it but yeah I can understand being a bit disappointed when the figure you bought has issues that the same figure bought by someone else doesn't. Luck of the draw. :/

Cogman is looking good Carn! After the hassle I had to go through to get my TLK one, I figured that one would be good for me. Plus i like his paint job better.

But nice poses too!

Just in from the Hasbro 35th anniversary panel at the FanExpo in Toronto are some reveals of the new Transformers Studio Series figures heading our way. These images come from Twitter user Carlos @ FanExpo (aka BlackFlameF50) who is currently at the event. Here we see Shockwave with scaled paratrooper, DotM Brains, and DotM Wheelie, leader class Scavenger, 2007 Movie Megatron in Voyager scale, and Mixmaster. Devastator is two pieces closer to coming together, the new Jetwing Optimus Prime can finally face off against Shockwave, and plenty of fans are going to be happy to see a 2007 Megatron in this scale. Enjoy the images and share your thoughts in the forums. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news.

I like what I see here. Do Scavenger's treads fold up into wheels like the original, or are the wheels hidden in vehicle mode?

Hoping for some solid poseability on Scavenger, I've always loved that design. The original will always be special for the rubber treads.
