According to BBTS, they won't be showing up until September. I'm wondering how somebody in Indiana got ahold of them already myself. It's pretty cool the US is getting these, though, since I never got to pick up Act 1 or 2. Which Japanese Act 1 figure was omitted so they could add Skywarp, btw?

I'd also like to point out, if you didn't know, that one or two New Yorkers have located them. Check eBay.

The promo poster I saw also showed Magnus, Thundercracker, gold God Ginrai, and Paradron Medic, but maybe those are part of a 2nd wave or something.

It's too bad they dropped Ultra Magnus from the first US PVC Act. Maybe he'll show up in Act 2. I know his Act 4 figure was quite a nice looking guy, even with the Diaclone colors. Seems odd to keep Ginrai and drop Magnus, doesn't it? And Arcee, for that matter.

Magnus was not dropped!! The store where this guy purchased the items said that Magnus was just hard to find/rare. They dropped some RID figure from act1 and put in Skywarp.

Already stated above. There was never any reason to believe Magnus was dropped besides that picture of the figs some guy managed to find. Nobdy ever said that all the figures being released were in that picture.

Well, everything I'd seen so far except for this thread has listed the figures as being Arcee, Prime, Megatron, Skywarp, Starscream, and God Ginrai/Powermaster Prime. All the preorder sites say that there are 6 figures in the set. I would say that means Magnus is either A) a "chase" figure, which isn't likely since the packaging is clear, or B) in the second act, which is more likely. Hey, I want to get him as much as you guys, I just don't think it's gonna happen with the first batch of figures. And who is Paradron Medic?
