The final wave of Transformers Combiner Wars Voyager Class figures are now showing up at Ross. The figure in this wave that will pique the most interest is Sky Lynx as some had trouble finding it at regular retail. Onslaught was also spotted at Ross. If you are still on the hunt for these figures now is the time to start hitting your local Ross stores. The figure in the image below was found at Ross in Wichita, KS for $13.99.

Whoa! $13.99 for a Voyager? Do they have any other figures like Deluxe class?

That's pretty lame that they missed using the G2 Decepticon symbols for G2 Bruticus. They got that right for G2 Superion and Menasor. Ugh...

I saw Onslaught and Scattershot at a local Marshalls for $14.99 too.

Oh, Ross, where would we be if not for your wonderful abundance of post-line, poorly distributed releases?
I may have to look sometime...

I shall resume the hunt with renewed vigor! $14 for his magnificence isn't a deal to be passed upon.

Hasbro really has no control over what stores order. Blame the retailers like Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, etc...

Come on man, dont you know Hasbro has nothing to do with this? This is all on the retailer end. These came to North America in abundance a few months ago, as proof of this toy being found elsewhere in very large quantities.

However, the retailers had a lot of older stock they probably over ordered they wanted to clear first. And now that titans return is near, Toysrus and others dont want the older line and either chose not to buy more from Hasbro or to sell their excess stock to market 6 stores. This happens often and is rarely the fault of the supplier.

Just like the last wave of Kreo/Kreon, seems like much of what is released abundantly in Canada, but not in the US, ends up in US Market 6 sharply discounted. I don't know what the cause is. I know Hasbro would love to be getting the profit as many U.S. fans would have been willing to pay $25 at retail for Skylynx. I already preordered UW Lynx Master, but heck for $13 if I find a Sky Lynx at Marshalls I may get it just so my son can play with it.

Guys. Hasbro has nothing to do with this situation. Hasbro got their money when they sold wholesale to the retailers. It's the retailers (i.e. Target, TRU, etc.)?who liquidate this stock to the discount sellers. Not Hasbro.

Like I said I didn't know what the cause was, but I appreciate your explanation. On Saturday I went to a local Target. They had totally removed the Transformers section, and had what few toys they did have (some smaller RiD stuff) to one of those plastic-strip things that hangs off an endcap. I knew they had at least one if not more CW Leader Class Skywarp & Starscream. The employee told me "they are in the back...you want me to get them out?"...I said only if they were on clearance, he said no. So instead of putting them on clearance and trying to sell them, they just sit in the stockroom where nobody can see them. Brilliant. :HEADHURTS:

Ya. In my area, Target has been the worst. For some reason they have no interest in stocking TFs. I remember hearing they got kind of burned by AOE sales. I wonder if they hesitate with the brand because of it.

It's a transition time for Target. They are clearing out the summer seasonal stuff and putting out the School Supplies section. I expect Christmas stuff goes up next week. (Yeah, I'm only partially kidding about this....seems like Xmas goes up earlier and earlier every year. And heaven forbid I might actually need a swimsuit in the middle of July...) But in all seriousness, they are planning the displays for the holiday shopping season as well as upcoming movie merchandise.

Also, while Transformers is popular, in my experience, most Target stock people don't really care, nor have any knowledge of any of the toy lines. They just stock stuff as directed by corporate, including putting out items on clearance. I would expect those CW items to appear on a clearance endcap before too long...

hey guys, I've been wanting to get a Sideswipe for my collection and want to get the Classics version. However, I already have the CW Sunstreaker and want the two characters to be the same mold (since they are the same car model in G1). Would you guys recommend I just buy the Classics Sideswipe AND Suntreaker or is it useless to get the Sunstreaker since I have the CW version?

Also, I have the CW Prowl and want Smokescreen, but if he is really as bad as everyone says then should I just get the Classics version of Smokescreen and Prowl? I don't know if anyone else has this kind of OCD when it comes to transformers that are supposed to be the same vehicle but I'm not sure if it's worth buying the same character over again.

Well, G1 Sideswipe and Sunstreaker were different molds originally, so having Universe Sideswipe and CW Sunstreaker would reflect that. But if you really really want them to be the same molds, you'd just have to get Universe Sunstreaker too to fulfill that want. It's a decent mold that works for both Sunstreaker and Sideswipe.

The Universe Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen mold isn't very good by today's standards. Universe Smokescreen's deco is also really ugly. CW Smokescreen isn't that awful, it's just that the majority of its paint apps went into its altmode rather than its robot mode.
