Which two?

Mudflap & Barricade

Oh really?

Nice, so who comes with each TF? I suspect the naked butt dude with Mudflap. Who with Barricade though? There is no Human Alliance with Decepticons in the movies thus far.

Got a link?

Mudflap comes with Chromia & Seymour Simmons and Barricade comes with Frenzy.

Ah SWEET!

I'll definitely et those two. I've wanted a proportionate Frenzy since the first movie.

And of course it would be Simmons. That's who I meant.

I see that Walmart.com has both of their exclusive seekers up for $34 + a free $10 eGift Card.  97 cent shipping or free site to store.  Not too shabby if you're into ROTF toys.

I feel just awful for pimping WM on this site.   :-[

oooh. I've been lusting after those dudes, but $30 each was just too much. BTW, I found WM's latest Universe exclusives last night. Somebody already pinched Powerglide though, which was disappointing, since I was holding out for this version. Apparently, so was everyone else.

Found a set of the TRU exclusive G1 reissues. As I already had the TFC Perceptor, I just picked up the Insecticons. Better act fast if you see them, since these have been in stock and disappeared from TRU's website already.

Hopefully, we see more reissues stateside, but I assume they only happen when a movie brings in new blood.

I already have a vinty Perceptor and the insecticons, but they're in "great played with condition" (I still remember the seller's description on eBay from years ago) so I had to rebuy these minty versions.  $74 and change was hard to swallow, but I'm happy.

Pretty sure Hasbro said this is it for any vinty reissues - at least for this year.  MP Warp has been sighted in Canuckia, but not sure if I want him as I already have the MP version.   :-\

I can't wait for MP Skywarp. Though I'll have to wait till it shows up on WM's site in January since the local stores refuse to stock exclusives like that.

Oh, and MP Grimlock is totally going to be released in the US next year, so sayeth this Q & A. Which is great, because I couldn't bring myself to fork over $150 for one.

Looks like MP Warp has been found in KY.

Happy Hunting kids!

TRU.com has the Insecticons and Perceptor in stock, with free shipping.  :)

My local TRU had about 10 of each of these last Friday night.  Came back the next afternoon and they were all gone save for 1 Perceptor.  Too bad there wasn't a few more for this reissue round, but I can understand TRU wanting to be cautious after what happened last time.

Found MP Warp this morning.  I already have the Tak version, but I never opened my MP WM Screamer and they look great packaged together.  May end up returning him though.  They only had 1 case.  Never did find MP Screamer at retail thanks to BBTS so this was kind of a cool find.

Oh - also got an Animated Wreck-Gar at Marshalls for $13.  Better price.

Looks like MP Warp made it to WM.com  Free site to store in case anyone can't find him out there.

I found 'Warp this week too, but the GI Joe Battle Stations hit at the same time, so I spent the $60 on those. I'll get it eventually, but I probably shouldn't dawdle too long.
