yeah, i thought it was just a print error, but they're all like that. they cheaped out on packaging and used the same generic card

I think it was said awhile back that international packaging for Universe would be "generic" and not have the art featuring the character in the package (at least not on the front). It's a cost cutting move by Hasbro.

personally I blame the french ... same thing happens with starwars and other toylines as well... it just costs the company's more $$$ to have every single thing on the card translated I think ....

Mine got a whole bunch too, i'd say closer to 15 of each....was down to about 3 of each after a few days though, so at least they're selling well up here.

we got the new voyger univers in at my target yesterday!!! I took a sneak peek (there not supose to be out till the 26th when targets reset the toy dept. co wide), & Blaster was inside.

 

Mix Master (or atleast that's what I call him. he's a Decepticon & a cement mixer truck) & to me that spells Mix Master. I can't wait to get them in to my collection.

Found them today myself; I would also like to know why these don't have rubsigns.

 

Did anyone else notice that prowl's rooflights are different than the ones pictured on the back of the card?

They are starting to hit in force here in Jacksonville, Florida. I saw them at two TRUs and Target just started their reset and they had the deluxe as well as the Voyagers Heavy Load and Blaster. I saw Blaster and don't know why they didn't retool the original cuz that Galaxy Force Soundwave repaint just doesn't bring any nostalgia nor reflect a classic.

Well this isn't classics, its TFU. The whole "Classic 2.0" thing is a fan moniker.

well Sunstreaker & Prowel deffinately have the Classic feel to them! there's no doubt that Blaster is a Sound wave repaint. but the paint job is REALY COOL so I just had to get him.

 

But yeah, if Hasbro knows what's good for them, they'll start cracking on new Classic molds.
