Fellow Seibertronian Rysquad has som pretty awesome news for us. Remember those Cyber Battalion figures, like the new Jetfire and Prowl that we were not going to get at retail in the US? Well, they have just been spotted at Wallgreens. And at a great price no less, the voyager sized Jetfire was obtained for $16.99 USD. A fan reported to Ben Yee from BWTF.com that he had found it in Rancho Cordova, California. As a refresher, images of these toys can be found below the sighting evidence. Happy hunting!

How do we know it's not a return to Walgreens of an item bought at Universal Studios?

There's no "Universal Studios Exclusive" sticker on the box, which all TF toys sold at Universal Studios have.

Because if that was the case, it would be in their system. Plus its a different price from universal studios, where its doulbe the price there, so the listing is wallgreens specific.

This is cool news! It's interesting though because it's a rather large toy for Walgreens to stock. They usually don't stock anything larger than Deluxe in Transformers.

Except they do sell larger toys as well as the wingspan and cloudraker 2 pack wich is slightly smaller than a voyager box

I'm pretty sure that's the price the Cyber Battalion guys were originally supposed to sell for too. Finally, they're good value!

You know what's kind of hilarious? That price point is cheaper than the $19.99 to $17.99 the TR Deluxes usually go for at Walgreens. 8-}
And it's a WAY bigger toy.

I find it awesome that Walgreens is now part of my rotation when looking for toys now.

It's not always size. Comes down to production and part count.

Even if he may not have knee articulation, Jetfire is on my radar!

I hope these two aren't the only ones that make it to standard retail. The Megatron and Grimlock ones, in particular, would be nice.

We had Prowl already covered in the Jetfire sighting!

Checked the only local Walgreens Friday and they had nothing (aside from two TR Triggerhappys and a ton of Kre-o blind bags). Hopefully I don't have to check the place too many times as this particular store is in a terrible location that's super hard to drive to being on a one way road off of a bridge requiring me to either come in from the other end of the city or make a huge circle around the store to get into it. It's so annoying! I really just want Prowl and either one of the big Prime's.

That sighting was for California. This one shows that they're beginning to show up outside that state too.

Just in case fans thought it was a fluke, we have growing reports of these simplified budget line Cyber Battalion figures. Like with every other toyline in the US, reports start in California and are slowly expanding from there, with reports found in Texas, Arizona and more. What is super fun though is that Jetfire and Prowl are not the only characters being found at the $16.99 price point. Fans have also found Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. Hot Rod, a fan on our Facebook page even posted an image of Walgreen's databse which shows 6 different figures, so hopefully that means either Starscream, Megatron or Grimlock will be coming too. Another facebook page fan, Nel, posted an image of his Jetfire purchase comparing him to some previous Jetfires.

Let us know in both your respective state sightings thread and in the sightings section if you find any in your area.

I'm still waiting to find Cloudraker and Wingspan at Walgreens. Has anyone else had any luck?

Not yet. I live close to one now and have a Fastclash I need to get rid of, so I was going to ask the same thing.
