Thanks to 2005 Boards member shapercreator14 for sharing in our boards photographic proof of his sighting of the new Transformers Legacy Wave 2 Leader Class Blitzwing at US retail.
Blitzwing was spotted a Target store in Cleveland, Ohio just a few hours ago. Time to check your nearest stores to try to hunt this new Legacy incarnation of the Decepticon triple-changer.
Just got mine from Pulse. F–king awesome figure, much better than T30 or TR. The hulk hands are safely dumped in the bottom of the spare parts bin, never to be seen again. Otherwise, I'm 100% satisfied with him, and will NOT be popping the pin to separate the alt modes, FYI
Hasbro Pulse orders are shipping and still no word from Amazon 🙁
I was lucky to place an in-stock Macy's order last week. He arrived yesterday! What a nice upgrade!

Come on Amazon, don't let Pulse beat you!
I found one ‘early’ at Walmart last month, Great figure, really satisfying transformation and sturdy
I get people aren’t that satisfied with this guys alt modes but it really isn’t worth paying 50 bucks just to have this guy be reduced to a glorified Skytread.
Just got notice from Pulse that he’ll be shipping soon
I found him last week at a small town Walmart. Needed dog bones.View attachment 29608337 View attachment 29608339
Any recent sightings in CA?
It’s not a matter of if he’ll reach you but when. Wave 2’s begun to trickle out relatively newly, and even then, Blitzwing’s very likely to get repacked, if not in Wave 3, in general, seeing as there’s a repack listing.
Where the hell is this guy? A couple of weeks ago I thought he was imminently about to be shipped out to me from one of the 3 places I preordered him from…now, nothing.
Plane + tank = robot?
Blitzwing was the original Overlord!
Now to wait for him to show up in East Las Vegas/Henderson
The hunt is back on!
Ah heck, I hate hunting in walmarts.
Starting to show up in walmarts, this specific location is Sacramento.

Anyone got a link to this on Target's website?
Just saw this on FB :

They look great…. Separated.
Target can use a UPC or a DPCI to find figures. The DPCI will allow them to find the assortment in the store (if it's in stock) or see if it's on the way or available at another store. The one DPCI can be used to find all Legacy Leader figures. Every single wave, not just the first one, will share that DPCI. That's the problem, you have to call and confirm for sure they have Laser Optimus or Galvatron or Blitzwing, you can't take "we have it in stock" at face value.
Walmart does the same thing with UPCs. You can have them run it, they'll tell you they have 5 of them, then you walk in and find out it is 5 Bulkheads or a bunch of SS86 Hot Rod/BB Soundwave, you get the idea.
Individual is more for the online sales portion at Target.com. Store-level can use those to find them, but they'll even tell you that it's part of an assortment and they may not have that specific one. The only times a DPCI works for a specific figure is if it's exclusive, a Commander Class, or a Titan Class as they're solid cases of the same figure. Assorted figures will always have this problem.
