Can you guess? New toys (or statues, depending on how you view them) out in the USA!

Several people between the Allspark and TFW2005 have reported finding the second wave of the 6" Titanium Cybertron Heroes figures, namely Thundercracker and Jetfire, in Toys'R'Us stores all across Texas (and just to avoid confusion - those are not exclusive to TRU, they were just spotted there first!), and TFW2005 member cutback4197 provided a visual proof of purchase here. As always, remember to report your own sightings of Titanium Thundercracker here, and sightings of Jetfire here!

What is exclusive to TRU stores, meanwhile, is the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal vs. Megatron two-pack. Whereas the mass retail Deluxe toys that were released a few months ago were all-new molds originally designed for the Cybertron line (and which will be repainted for the Cybertron line soon on top of that), these are a Hasbro release of Takara's "Beast Wars Reborn" two-pack that came out earlier this year. These toys are remolds of the original Beast Wars Ultra toys from 1996 (whith new, more show-accurate robot heads for Optimus Primal and Megatron, and a retooled gorilla head for Primal as well) and a more show-accurate paint job for both toys on top of that.

This TRU-exclusive two-pack has been sighted by several people already, and both Allspark member Robogeek28 and TFW2005 member Poisoncow provided receipt photos (here and here, respectively).

Remember to post your own sightings of the BW 10th Anniversary two-pack here.

I'm really looking forward to this release. I don't have either of these two from previous lines, so they're all new to me.

Anybody think they'll release repaints of Thundercracker as Starscream and Skywarp? Would anybody object to that? I personally can't wait for the Optimal Optimus Primal figure.

A Starscream repaint of Thundercracker has already been revealed by Hasbro at SDCC. Mirrored images:

I just went by toysrus.com to look for the Beast Wars 10th Anniversary Two Pack, and found something interesting: on the page for Cybertron Swerve, they have posted the box art for G1 Swerve. View the page here:

Swerve is by far not the only product listing the TRU site got screwed up. See if you can find Dark Scorponok... And check out the descriptions for the Alternators.
