Animated Deluxe Wave 6 Sighted

This reporter found all 3 of the newest TF Animated deluxe figures – Samurai Prowl, Waspinator, and Elite Guard Bumblebee – at the Target store in West Hollywood, California. Contrary to my prior opinion, Samurai Prowl is a mix of previous and new parts, and as such, the main bike is the same exact scale as the original Prowl figure. So keep your optics peeled for these new figures, good luck and good hunting!
