Forum members RobimusPrime and DJBomberman have both let us know that the current wave of Deluxes including Skids and Waspinator are now arriving at Walmart stores. In at least one case these toys have received an entire endcap, which should mean large quantites and easy hunting. If Target hasn't been helpful to you so far, this is worth a look, and Wal-Mart currently has Deluxes priced at $9.96, comparable to Target's own holiday sale price.
On an early preview of their upcoming magazine issue, Transformers Collector's Club has given us our first look at the Deluxe Class Generations Rattrap whose existence was revealed months ago in a series of listings from Wal-Mart's computer.

TakaraTomy's Hisashi Yuki has once again been teasing soon to be released toys on his Twitter account. This morning he's tweeted pictures of "Bumblebee Goldbug", which is something of a halfway point between the Bumblebee and Goldfire figures from Hasbro's Generations line with lots of metallic gold and a blue Bumblebee head instead of the faceplated alternate head we'll have on Goldfire.

Many new images of upcoming exclusive item TFC-A01 Optimus Prime have been posted to the TakaraTomy Mall website alongside preorders for this dual-homage recolor of Classics Voyager Optimus Prime.
